It is really no surprise to see the new Panasonic GM1 lead the Amazon mirrorless ranking (Click here to see the list). Now let’s see how long it will remain there. Back to news:
The Spanish friends over at Quesabesde made this nice video presentation of the GM1. A must see if you speak spanish (or just want to watch the camera in action).
Digicameinfo found the images of the soon the be announced Olympus Stylus 1. It’s going to be announced on October 29 and the price is 70,000 YEN (around 500 Euro or $700). Not that Yen prices are usually higher so $ and Euro price could be less. It has a 1:1,7 inch sensor and a 24-300mm zoom lens. Here is one more image:

The GM1 is a camera that got a surprisingly (and well deserved) positive feedback from all testers and reviews. And on 43rumors 82% of the poll voters said they like the camera. This is actually the best result we ever had on every MFT camera!
Well done Panasonic! Here are new tests and preorder links:
