A fake Panasonic GF2

We are still looking for some REAL GF2 and GH2 (or GF3 and GH3) leaks. In the meanwhile people starts to imaginate how the new GF could look like :)

    There’s also the new 12-75mm fast zoom on it …

  • Joachim

    I shall not buy a camera without built-in viewfinder.

      I think too they should make some G2 kits with pancakes.

    • mat

      I agree. Unless/until there’s a GFx/E-Px with a built-in viewfinder I see no compelling reason to upgrade from the GF1.

  • Henrik

    Don’t post such useless stuff. (I know you will anyway.)

  • Poster

    Looks just like a L1, anyway why should Panasonic make the next gf1 even larger than smaller?

    Have you guy seen the new LX5, there is now also a port for the electrical viewfinder

    first things first leica is not part of m43… but i like the design hope the 43camera will be like this

  • RW

    This mock-up is much uglier than the real GF-1. The GF-1’s sublime good looks are one of its best selling points – and I can’t see Panasonic messing with that. That lens mock-up is something only a mother could love – like something to kill zombies with in Half Life 2.

    I don’t mind artist speculations – I find them kind of interesting in fact. Whoever did this one lacks an artistic sense of proportion and grace in their design however.

    Hmm… but but, what’s that? GF2 or GH2? If it’s GF2, I must say, GF1 looks more handsome than this…

  • Jules

    Looks more or less like a G version of DMC-L1. specially with that Leica branded f2.8 zoom.
    Add an EVF, rethink the interface and you get a DMC-GL1.
    Its ok, there is a market for that. At least on the dpreview forum.

    I predict the GF2/3 will look a lot like the GF1. It may get the current GH1 sensor with the new G2 processor and some additional film modes, perhaps the new microlenses, probably a touch screen LCD that may tilt up and down like the NEX. I don’t see a built-in EVF into the GF series at all – it could compete with the G-series too much.

    Has anyone considered a gf2 with ONLY an evf?

    It would be compact and just like a traditional camera. I rarely use the LCD on my gh1 although it can be useful for those low/high shots.

  • PicutreTwo

    There will never be a G(xyz) with only viewfinder. There a people which would buy such a camera (like me) if the VF is big enoug and tiltable,

    But the marketing guys from panasonic will look at the “average”-consumer which prefers a LCD (of course a touchscreen)

    I would love a GF2 in size of a LX5 (maybe a little bit thicker) with VF port on the left (not center)
