What’s hot:
The G6 gains considerably improved movie capabilities, including full exposure control, an external mic socket and the sensor from the GH2. It also adds the NFC-aided Wi-Fi for simple remote control and image download that we first saw in the GF6. it has the same GH2 sensor, albeit without that model’s multi-aspect feature. (Source: Dpreview).
14-140mm lens is smaller, lighter, less-expensive alternative to the original G Vario HD 14-140mm F4.0-5.8 ASPH Mega OIS. The latest version features three aspheric and two ED elements and an internal focus design with linear stepper motors to make the most of the faster focus processing of the latest Micro Four Thirds bodies (Source: Dpreview).
The LF1 marries the sensor from the LX7 to a longer, slower lens (but longer zoom range) and adds an electronic viewfinder (Source: Dpreview).

    As far as styling goes, IMO the GH2 was the best looking of the bunch. Then the G5. Less so the GH3 and now the G6.

    I miss the hump….

    • After all the whinging over the OMD’s hump the folks at panny probably thought, “Let’s give them a reason to whinge over a very small hump.” :-P

    The same old GH2 sensor? FAIL Panasonic. If it had the same sensor as the GH3 I would have bought one, but this gives me no reason to upgrade from my GH2.

    • @anonymous
      The G6 isn’t aimed at potential GH2 upgraders so the fail is on your part.

    • true homer

      the stupidity of men somehow continue to amaze me…

      • “no IBIS, no buy” and “lens is not black, no buy” were getting seriously old, so they had to find an other nail to over-hammer until both the nail and the whole concept gets destroyed in ridicule..

    Just look at the Olympus EP-5. Thats what Panasonic should have done. Regards Ulf.

    • Nope. This is what E-P5 should have looked like. Wanna swap sensor/IBIC combo :)?

  • safaridon

    I wish the LF1 had used the higher resolution 0.21″ EVF used in the FZ200.

  • In my opinion Lumix G6 was born from the work of Vitaliy Kiselev, hired as partner by panasonic, on the Lumix GH2

  • Call Return (*69) – Return a call to the last incoming caller simply by dialing *69.

    Many mobile laptop users find that the most appropriate model,
    for them, often involves some kind of compromise, usually between the size of the screen, or the number of additional features, and the overall physical
    size, and weight, of the machine. I absolutely despise the jungle of cables that the desktop demanded
    (all I hook up to my laptop are: a mouse, a keyboard, a monitor,
    a printer, and a power cable).
