Panasonic goes Retro!!! Panasonic's follow-up to the
popular Lumix GX1 camera appears to have been leaked. An image was seen on Fotomagazine.de as well as specs reported
by 4/3 Rumors, the GX7
will have a tilting electronic viewfinder, on-sensor image stabilization, a 16-
or 18-megapixel sensor, a tilting 3-inch screen, and Wi-Fi and NFC
Fujifilm's X series really influence this new camera, with
metal construction and the option of a silver and black color way (memories).
The images showed a 20mm prime lens mounted on the GX7, suggesting it will be
offered as part of a kit.
An update on the
GX1 was mandatory, but it will definitely cost you a pretty penny. From the
rumors the GX7 body alone will sell for ?1,000 (about $1,320), compared to the
GX1 which only cost ?599.99 ($699.99).
