Panasonic GF2 to start shipment on December 03, 2010 (in Japan)

Panasonic Japan just announced the Panasonic GF2 will start to ship in Japan from December 03, 2010. The expected retail price of a single body around 60,000 yen. The 14mm kit costs 80,000 yen and the double kit (14mm +14-45mm) 90,000 yen.

As usual the rest of the world has to wait 1-2 months more before to get the GF2 :(
Amazon UK already confirmed that the GF2 is due to be released on January 24, 2011. Amazon US and BHphoto have no delivery date.

Hmmm, maybe we will see the GF3 announcement before we have the GF2 in Stock? :)

UPDATED: Panasonic GF2 preview at Systemkamerforum (+ more GF2 news)

Hands-on at Systemkamera-forum.de. You need to be registered to download the pdf file. The most important news is that „ Mein persönliches Fazit nach einigen Stun- den und mehr als 200 Bildern mit der LUMIX GF2: Ich vermisse Tasten und das Modusrad in keiner Weise – mit erweiterter Touchscreen- Bedienung und Quickmenu hat Panasonic einen vollwertigen Ersatz geschaffen.“ Translated… “I don’t miss the buttons and wheel they removed from the GF1, the touchscreen works very well.

Meanhwile ThePhoBlographer gives you “7 Reasons Why I’m Not Buying the Panasonic GF-2“. Hmmm…do you agree with all his critiques?

And finally there is a Panasonic GF2 preview at Imaging Resource.

UPDATE: Photoradar posted ISO-charts results.

(FT2) Olympus E-PL1s coming on November 16?

The popular japanese website Digicame-info.com writes that the new Olympus E-PL1s might be announced on November 16. That camera should have almost the same Olympus E-PL1 design but be paired with a new Lens-kit taht could be smaller than the current 14-42mm lens. So after the black E-P2 kit and the infrared E-PL1 will we get another NOT new camera? But let’s focus on the positive aspect…we could get a new lens ;)

The Olympus E-PL1 has been announced in February 2010, the Olympus E-P2 in November 2009.

Uh one more thing, get the refurbished E-P1 for $369.95 only at Adorama!
