From two different 43rumors sources:
The LX line will not merge into the MicroFourThirds Sytem. Expect a LX3 successor for the Photokina 2010 and the first compact MicroFourThirds camera much earlier. it will probably open new nomenclature.
We are still months away from a Panasonic compact MicroFourThirds announcement. May I can give Panasonic some advise?
Make the camera even smaller as the E-P1! …with a nice OLED screen….and if you wanna become my personal superhero company find the place to put the EVF!
P.S.: Sorry no room for built in flash in my tiny camera :(
