And here it is the new Panasonic GF3!!! It has been leaked inside the video you can see below. Panasonic chose to replace the only eight month old Panasonic GF2 in order to compete against the upcoming NEX-C3 (which will be announced on June 8th). Yes guys, as we all know the Megapixel war is over and let’s say hello to the Miniaturization war! P.S.: You can see the GF2 vs NEX-C3 size comparison here. The GF3 has about the same size of the current Panasonic TZ cameras (Click here to see them on eBay).
Two more pictures (Click on them to enlarge!):
The GF3 mount is actually higher than the camera itself. We know from our sources the camera has no hot shoe and it’s almost completely a touchscreen oriented devices (why do we need buttons? Bleh!). We are not sure about the specs now but we do believe it features the same Panasonic G3 16 Megapixel sensor. The camera will be announced on June 13 at 7 am London time along the new Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens (yes guys that’s FT5 for us!!!)
For those of you waiting for a more professional GF camera and worthy Fuji X100 competition wait a couple of months when Panasonic may will announce the Micro Four Thirds version of the Panasonic L1 (Click here to see that cam on eBay).
You can see the GF3 inside that video starting from minute 3:40. It’s an official commercial made for Panasonic! I bet the video will be rmeoved soon!
