    so it's basically an updated GF1? There've been loads of people begging for one, but personally I had hoped for something more...

    I'm beginning to think that I like it if it is real. Though the "bump" on the back will probably be a great help in handling, it looks like an afterthought. At least it has a real thumb wheel???

    No second control wheel/dial. No built in VF. Bummer.

    Looks like a detachable grip a la EP3?

    I agree that no built-in VF is a bummer. I am not concerned about the second control wheel though: I prefer the single, dual function Panasonic approach to that of Olympus.

    Bartjeej nailed exactly my thoughts. It's a slightly updated GF1. Oh well not quite enough of an upgrade to threaten the EP3 or X100.

    It's nice to see an updated GF-1 being released. It still is my favorite m43 camera, but with all that has been released since the GF-1 came out, this is a bit underwhelming. I guess if it has superb IQ and operation then it might be a good camera.
