The 43 Rumors web site is reporting that Panasonic will soon be announcing a high-end compact camera with a fixed lens and built-in EVF. For a while, it was believed this camera would have a four-thirds sensor. But it now appears (remember, this is a rumors site - albeit a reputable one) the new camera will have a 1/1.7" sensor - the same size as the LX7. (FT5) Panasonic LF1 has 1/1.7 inch sensor (like the LX7) | 43 Rumors So... would you be interested in what is essentially an LX7 with a built-in viewfinder and the very latest sensor, even if a 1/1.7"? I might be - if the camera is the same size as the LX7 and the price doesn't stray too far beyond $500.
