I call photochop - that bears no resemblance to the GF2 or the current design language of Panny cameras.

Put down the crack pipe and SLOWLY back away.

Didn't the GF2 build up and expectations teach anyone anything?

Agreed, that photo is 100% photoshopped.. But a lot of times rumor sites will throw one of those up there just as an idea of what they hope for and so they have something to headline the article. I just hope the lens isnt too pricy!

Edit: dang, that is straight up cold, totally jacked your mock up!

To cut some slack there was not a claim that the picture was of an actual GF3 here or in the article.

That said my main problem would be the 25/1.4 lens as it is projected to cost that much by itself (or more).

Also the mass market wants zooms while serious photographers also want primes. If this is going to be a mass market camera to compete against the NEX it will have a zoom as the primary lens.

That's awesome if your mock up for the board is now being touted as the next GF3 or GF series camera!

Hey, we may all get a shock and see Panasonic hit the market with your prototype!

Now THAT would be concept theft! :biggrin:
As long as they give me one for free, I'd be OK with that! :thumbup:

As for the prediction given, I suspect that if the price is accurate, then it's for the kit with the 14-42mm or the 14mm pancake. If a kit were available with the new fast prime, then it would likely be well over $1000. Kinda like the GH2 being available with the 14-42 for $999 and the 14-140 for $1499.

Those specs are someone's wish list, nothing more.

These posts are like the same one's on the mobile phones sites that talk about rumors of the next iPhone.

OK. I used my insider connections and pulled from many sources. Here is the next GF3. A picture is worthless a thousand words.

I call fake, everyone knows it'll not have shutter button, but just touchscreen focusing and shutter, just like an iPhone. You'll be able to download a widget though, to put a skin-able virtual shutter button to your screen. I surely hope they'll include Leica skin :smile:

:lol: So it's a joint venture? beside the obvious Merkinsak shutter/lens, I spot a Nikonos IVa and a Widelux (F7?). All classics. But choosing an Optar instead a Zuiko-Pen does demonstrate Oly and Panny are close to divorce :biggrin:

Very good! Nikonos V, Widelux F8, and the lens is a little obvious.
