Philippe Grangier captured those picture of the new Panasonic GF2. As you see the slogan is “Ultra compact & Ultra simple”. Philippe sent us a high-resolution image you can see below (Click the image to enlarge):
We didn’t find any picture of the back.
If you have more images or info contact me at email@example.com. Thanks!
Thanks to a french 43rumors reader we can show you the very first picture of the Panasonic GF2!!! The picture shows the advertising at “Salon de la Photo” in Paris (the event starts tomorrow). The GF2 looks like the Panasonic LX5! And with the new Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 lens lens it is the smallest mirrorless kit on earth! It has 12 megapixel (The same G2 sensor), records FullHD, a complete new imaging processor, touchscreen and announcement is expected at 6am London time (November 4th). Follow 43rumors! We will keep you updated with all news and previews!
We don’t know the price of the GF2 but we expect it to be close to the current Panasonic GF1 (Click here to check the price!)

Let’s start with a bad news. Not only the Panasonic GH2 Body Only is impossible to find also the SIlver GH2 kit has been removed from many online stores. Neither AmazonUS, neither AmazonUK, AmazonFR lists it anymore! You can still preorder it on Adorama and BHphoto (Approximal arrival December).
The popular Hong Kong forum OMuser (Click here) just posted the first image samples of the Panasonic GH2 with firmware 1.0 (those are the very first image samples we found that are taken with the final firmware). They posted samples from ISO 200 until ISO 12.800. Images are pretty clean up to ISO 800!
Again on Flickr you can find image smaples of the new Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 lens. There is also a first hour report on dpreview written by a new lens owner. You can get the Voigtländer lens on eBay (Click here).
Finally we know the exact date and hour of the Panasonic GF2 announcement.
November the 4th (Thursday) at:
– 1am New York City time
– 6am London time
– 7am Berlin time
– 3pm Tokyo time
As usual I will not sleep the night before the announcement to keep you updated with all last minute leaks and first press releases and previews. I would be very happy if you could send me everything you can find about the GF2 to share it with all 43rumors readers. Thanks!
Spread the word! See you at 6am (London time) on 43rumors
