UPDATE: Because of the recent Daylight saving time change most websites did publish their articles one hour earlier than expected.

It has Touch AF system, and image quality is impressive: “Images taken at ISO 400 look comparable with those I have taken at ISO 200 on the G1“…”However, my enthusiasm was somewhat tempered when I saw that the Panasonic GF2 has fewer button and dial controls than the GF1, and the user has to use the touchscreen to select settings such as the shooting mode. It may be the result of the downsizing of the camera (the GF2 is 19% smaller and 7% lighter than the GF1), but I am disappointed that there’s no main mode dial on the top-plate.

Price:
GF2-KEB = £599.99 (14-42mm zoom lens kit)
GF2-CEB = £629.99 (14mm pancake lens kit)
GF2-WEB = £729.99 (14-42mm & 14mm twin lens kit)

Panasonic China leaks the GF2!

The chinese text at Panasonic.cn says:

As a replacement model for the hotselling GF1, the GF2 has reduced approx 19% of its volume and reduced approx 7% of its weight, becoming the world’s lightest interchangeable lens body. Additionally with this size advantage, the GF2 uses a 12MP Live MOS Sensor, allowing for a 1920×1080 at 60i(NTSC) or 50i(PAL) video using AVCHD codec. With the use of a new bounce flash system, it prevents vignetting from the photos taken with flash at a close distance. Panasonic’s “My Colours and 460K 3″ LCD, allows for better photography simulation/ideas, bringing a better user viewing experience.

In summary:
– 19% less volume and 7% less weight
– 12 Megapixel
– 1080i (60i/50i)
– Built-in flash
– LCD has 460.00 dot resolution

P.S.: Thanks “FF” for the translation!
