    Hi,
    I am thinking of getting a cheap second body to go with my GX1 and am tempted to get a GF2 as they share batteries. I use the GX1 with the 45-175PZ in a waterproof bag case using the Touch Zoom and Touch Shutter. Does anyone know if the GF2 supports Touch Zoom as it does not appear to from reading the manual or was it added as an option with a firmware update?
    Many thanks.

    Well as unfortunately nobody could confirm it I went ahead and picked up a cheap red GF2 on EBay.

    I had to upgrade the firmware to make it fully compatible with the power zoom lenses and although this added the display of focal length etc it does not enable the touch zoom that exists on the GX1. I will still keep this as a second body as it complements the GX1 being very similar in size and function although simpler and obviously less resolution but got some great pictures with it already.

    Thought I would post this update in case anyone else has the same question in the future.
