    Not been keeping up with photography for a while so I was a bit surprised to get an email about the G6, didn't the G5 only come out a few months back?

    I don't think it's been out for more than a year. I think they will do what they did with the G3 and keep selling the old model for a bit.

    Yes the G5 is, it's more of an evolutionary upgrade from the G5.

    OTOH: just spur of the moment thought... What if Panasonic waited and used the G6 specs to launch a G5 now? Would that have given more impact?

    I know the gap for a G3 upgrade would be longer, but they just also launched the GH3 last 9/2012. I am for longer product cycles in exchange for better feature set and upgrades.
