GX1 gets cheaper and cheaper:
The GX1 got another small price drop and now sells with 14-42mm kit lens for $460 only at Amazon (Click here). I am certainly not the only one having noticed the price drop as it managed to get back into the first page of the most popular mirrorless cameras at Amazon (here is the ranking). At that price it is $59 cheaper than the new Panasonic GF5 camera with the same kit lens. The GX line wasn’t supposed to be above the GF line? :)
The price dropped even In Europe (See price history for Germany). At Fotomundus you can get a GX1 for 50 Euro less than last months price.
GX2 coming soon?
And now let’s talk about the possible future GX2. It has been quite for some time now. I know via sources that this is the next camera that Panasonic will announced. And we also know that Panasonic officially said (back in Spring) that they will “better define” the GX line during the year. But there is no 100% reliable info yet about the exact release date. All we heard for now is that the GX1 has the GH3 sensor and a complete new design.
