Engadget found out that the GF6 name has been registered at Taiwan’s National Communications Commission. This is a necessary step in Taiwan for all new devices having WiFi.
There are again more than 10 of the superb Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lenses for sale for $799 at CameraLand (Click here). A 43rumors called them and CamerLand said that these lenses are brand new but are marked as “demo” to be able to sell them for $100 less than the normal Amazon price :)
Notice that CamerLand is a PowerSeller and a store you can trust! One more US deal: GX1 X kit for $499 at Amazon (Click here).
And an European deal to make German people happy too: Demo panasonic 12-35mm X lenses for 829 Euro at Powernet (Click here).
To get further notifications about eBay deals on the 75mm lens save that Slidoo eBay US search.
Another trusted source sent me a message with some more bits about the GF6:
1) He confirms it uses the same GX1 16 Megspixel sensor but the image quality is a tiny bit better because of the new more powerful imaging processor
2) The GF6 has an articulated screen just as the NEX5R (here on eBay) so it can flip over the top of the camera (and it makes the GF6 thicker than the GF5)
3) There is a mode dial
4) There is a zoom leveller close to the shutter button like on the new NEX-3n (here on eBay)
yesterday and anonympous source also said that the GX line is not discontinued. I am working on that rumor with trusted sources and will publish more about the GX future soon!
Be sure to be online on April 9th on 43rumors!!! Panasonic announcement at 6-7 am London time!

The popular Canadian CameraStore had only one big issue. They didn’t sell Olympus cameras…until now! To celebrate the coming back from Olympus they made this funny video. I hope we will never see any babies coming out of this new lovely partnership :)
