(FT5) Panasonic showed us incorrect specs! + message from trusted sources for you :)

The specs everybody is talking about are partially INCORRECT!
We from 43rumors can confirm you trough our trusted sources that some specs are completely wrong. Panasonic leaked us a non correct List of G2 and G10 specifications. I am sure that the leaked Panasonic page was just a work in progress page!

And one of my best sources has a message for you: “PS: And tell your visitors the Touchscreen is cool ;-)

(FT3) UPDATED -> Panasonic G2 and Panasonic G10 specs (only partially correct!!!)

SUMMARY OF THE EVENTS: Few hours ago the Panasonic G2 and Panasonic G10 images and specs have been found on the official Panasonic website. We have taken screenshot of it and you can read specs and see the images inside this post. Anyway it seems that this was just a “work in progress” article. So specs are partially incorrect! This has been confirmed by our sources. The Panasonic website has now been removed. As soon as we can we will give you the correct specs!
Anyway the pictures are REAL!
P.S. Expected announcement on Sunday 9am London time

UPDATE 6: Touchscreen is something you see in most digital backs of medium format cameras.

UPDATE 5: One of my best sources has a message for you: “PS: And tell your visitors the Touchscreen is cool ;-)
UPDATE 4:

UPDATED 3: Panasonic has already compact cameras with touchscreen. The new DMC-FP3 is an example!

Maybe some of the Panasonic G2 and Panasonic G10 specs are not correct?

The page Panasonic has shown us was a work in progress page. So maybe the specs are not 100% correct. I ask my sources if they can tell me more…
