43rumors reader Guillaume reports an amazing story:
“Yesterday, I went to Fnac store in oder to get a G6. Unfortunately, they only have G6 with kit lens 14-140. As I wanted the body only version, the vendor searched in Fnac products database but the body version wasn’t referenced. He show me the search results for “Pana body only” saying: “sorry, no G6, the only Panasonic that I can order in body only version are the GH3 and GX7. Bingo, I pre-order mine with 200€ account.“
Sadly Fnac had no pictures of the new GX7 but at leats we now know that the GX7 body costs 999 Euro! And all my sources confirmed the GX7 specs. New 18Megapixel sensor, built-in tiltatble EVF, on sensor stabilization (a first on Panasonic MFT cameras). Announcement in August! This is more o rless how it looks (image from panasonic patent):
This is how the GX7 is likely going to look (Courtesy Dicahub).
