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
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: http://www.dpreview.com/
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. :(
Probably photoshopped pictures that are maybe close to the real camera?
They also claim to know the prices of the GF1, external EVF and lenses:
Kit pancakes / 99,800 yen -1,060.00 USD (EVF Set / 118,000 yen -1,254.00 USD)
Macro Kit / 109,800 yen -1,166.00 USD (EVF Set / 128,000 yen -1,359.00 USD)
Single body / 79,800 yen -847.834 USD
55,000 yen -584.347 USD EVF single / 29,800 yen -316.000USD pancake lens / macro lens only 45,000 yen -640 USD
The big surprise is that there will probably be a external EVF (not shown in any picture).
A lot of not-so-new digital cameras are becoming cheaper and cheaper. A good time to buy a Panasonic or Olympus camera!
All this items are discounted. You see the price once you add it to your Shopping Cart.
This is the now famous rendered image (remember it is not REAL). But we like it ;)
It was never going to be a big surprise, we knew it would be happening a long time ago . But now Panasonic confirmed that “rumor” to the New York Times.
Here’s the most interesting excerpt from the article: “Panasonic say that theyâ€™re working on new models that will pack all of this miraculous technology into even smaller Micro Four Thirds packages.”
You can read the full article here.
Do you know something about the camera? Please share all your information!
