    I think they should just combine the G and GX line and make it a rangefinder style camera.

    Because its such a sexy camera.
    It's view finder was comfortably placed for those of us with Roman Noses:wink:
    It had a nice retro shutter speed dial [​IMG]
    Too bad they did not continue putting the aperture ring on their lenses. And it also has a 2 position bounce flash.
    Did I mention it was such a sexy camera too?

    Well Panasonic have hinted at a "Very, very high quality" camera soon so I guess we can only hope they are listening and looking at forums and desires as well as reviewing the interest in the likes of the OMD and the Fuji XPro-1 as they are both new, innovative and drawing a lot of interest both good and bad but in both cases, showing there is a lot of interest in Retro styles.

    So, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Panasonic could make a revamp of that sexy LC-1 and not suffer criticism for copying as it would be a revamp/upgrade of a previous popular model, or they could do a more svelte version of the GH series that is more akin to the OMD.

    Personally, I would rather see Panasonic produce a well made upgrade to the LC1 in a rangefinder styled body rather than a DSLR style, I guess we will have to wait and see.

    I want a programmable control dial around the lens mount, similar to the shutter speed dials on the OM (35mm) series. Why should all the controls be for the right hand?
