(FT5) UPDATED-> The GF1 is REAL!!! Short leak on dpreview…

The GF1 has been released:
Both configuration are available for preorder at amazon US:
Panasonic DMC-GF1K-K 12.1MP Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with 14-45mm Lens

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 12.1MP Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens

The Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Pancake Lens for Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Cameras is also available for preorder!
Panasonic 45mm f/2.8 Aspherical MEGA OIS Lens for Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Cameras



UPDATE: The GF1 advertising on dpreview is back! Take a look here:

If you click on the teasers you will NOT find the GF1 on the Panasonic website...for now!

UPDATE2: They removed the teaser again…

…it seem that dpreview wrongly posted their GF1 advertising for a very short time. They shortly removed the GF1 banner.
The GF1 should come in black, silver, red, white.


Thanks Michael S. and “Ren Kockwell” ;) for sending the screenshot!!!!!!!!!!!!



Interesting, wasn’t dpreview that accused other websites for leaking images just to drive traffic? :) Just a joke, we know this has been only a mistake made by the webmaster!

It’s 6 o clock in the morning and I still havn’t got any sleep. :(

  • Not an announcement, just a piece of advertiÅ¿ing.

  • Jeff

    Pretty, but I’m still waiting on that 20mm f1.7, if that launches… that’s where my paycheck is headed.

  • I will buy this too. I´m stoked. Hope there will be a wide angle prime too.

  • Chow

    I’m so happy it looks like a P&S.. Whatever specs it will have it will never have the charm of the E-P1…. (and no inbody IS I assume)…

    I do await the 20mm btw ;)

  • beagle

    Does the girl come with the camera?

  • This is what you get when you use adblock :)

    @beagle: Oh, you!

  • I’m 100% convinced that GF-1 is real.

    Does anyone of you know whether the GF-1 is made of plastic or steel?

  • Jie

    I think it’s with a 20mm f1.7 lens in the picture.
    I need the lens!

  • well done! I have been visiting your website every few hours since the rumors start. I doubted they will make the announcement before, because the extremely poorly made poster is too crappy.

    can’t wait for the announcement!!! thanks

  • adessio

    i hadn’t think of it, but it would be really nice to have a steel body.

  • I need EVF!!!!!!

  • Joe Anshien

    Are we ever going to see the GH1 in the U.S.?

  • Todd Eddie

    It is too bad panasonic products are vaporware. still no 7-14mm or 14-140mm m43 lens shipping, promised 20mm lens announced almost a year ago still not shipping. I wouldn’t hold you breath on this one.
