What should Panasonic come up with next? G7-GF7 or something else?

Panasonic pleased us with many great new cameras this year:
Panasonic GH4 (Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay)
Panasonic GM5 (Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay)
Panasonic LX100 (Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay)
Panasonic FZ1000 (Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay)

That’s a pretty nice lineup and some of those cameras are yet not matched by the competition! So it’s hard to think about what Panasonic should do as next.
Now I am asking 43rumors readers. What cameras is “needed”? What should Panasonic do?
Please comment this post with your suggestions and I will sum them up in a POLL to post later.

Here is an example of my list:
1) Launch a $199 Panasonic GF entry level MFT camera
2) Launch a new Full Frame mount camera to compete against the Sony A7 series.

P.S.: A personal note on Full Frame. Like many of you I know well that 99% of the people doesn’t need Full Frame. It’s not going to make you a better photographer. But people also doesn’t need SUV but that’s what many do buy nowadays and that’s where carmaker make money. I think the move to FF is necessary from a business point of view. From a purely photographic point of view it makes little sense.

The Olympus 40-150mm PRO lens designers have been interview by There are many detailed information about the High Quality of material used by the new PRO zoom. Like Super ED lens, dual focus system and so on. And it’s also cool to see many of the pictures on Beside that there are also some more general info like:

1) The PRO lines’ goal is to beat the SHG lens series performance (like the Four Thirds Olympus 14-35mm f/2.0 (here on eBay) and the 35-100mm f/2.0 (here on eBay) lenses.

2) The upcoming 300mm PRO ha a f/4.0 aperture to allow a compact size and small weight. Mobility is high on our priority list.

3) If the request is high we will make very fast primes (43rumors note: Olympus already hinted that fast primes will come in 2015)
