    I remuneration reading a rumor about Panasonic possibly making a M43 point and shoot zoom camera in the likes of an RX100 (but larger of course). Anybody else heard of such a rumor?

    also, what would you be willing to pay for such a camera with a 14-45 zoom?

    I like the idea of replacing my GX1 with a small zoom camera with a 4/3 sensor. If they could compete with the $$ of an RX100 or X20 I would jump!

    It's surprising there has not been more cameras like that. I can only think of Canon G1x and that leica. I am guessing neither Panasonic nor Olympus want to cannibalize their m43. Because a camera like that would be the only one most people would need. They would rather people buy a kit and then maybe some lenses later.

    Doesn't the GM-1 fill this role?

    I'm certain that any new camera (any style) will pull sales from higher models and other manufacture/formats. I purchased a GX1 early this year and would seriously consider a M43 P&S. just a thought
