(FT2) More Panasonic GH1 successor rumors…


I just received following mail:

Hi. I’ve seen you rumor on GH2 coming in 2Q 2010. That would concur with my information. As I live in Korea, where there is no import of  GH1, I contacted sales dept. asking if they will import in March GH2. The answer was, yes they are planning to import all GH models from now on, but GH2 will be release same time as in Japan….by the end of summer. I don’t know how reliable is sales dept. of Panasonic Korea, but they seems confident that GH2 won’t be on the market before the summer is over. Hope they are wrong, but combing it with what you posted today seems like G2 will be on PMA and GH2 later on this year.

I don’t know if we can trust sales dept. I hope he doesn’t tell the truth!
