The GX2 design patent?
I am working on the next bunch of rumors and all I can say for now is that it is very likely that we will see up to three new Micro Four Thirds cameras within the next 4-5 months. As you know one of them should be the new Panasonic GX2 that is rumored to arrive before the end of the year. Not a surprise seeing that the GX1 ($469 with lens at A.) costs less than the GF5 with the same lens. The new GX2 should have the same GH3 sensor, and a new design (built-in EVF?).
The real challenge right now are the two other new MFT cameras that are supposed to arrive from Olympus! These are scheduled for a release in early 2013. And both are rumored to be different from the cameras we have seen until now and both are made for the enthusiast amateur or semi pro photographer. I am working to get some double-triple feedback from other sources and I will give you some reliable news as soon as I can! Stay tuned!
P.S.: Successor coming or not…the GX1 sells well at that low price according to Amazon ranking (Click here).
