"Panasonic intends to release a Lumix GF camera aimed at advanced photographers, the company has confirmed to our colleagues at PhotoRadar. Speaking exclusively to PhotoRadar, Panasonic's Director of DSC Business unit Ichiro Kitao said that although he was unable to confirm a date for such a camera, Panasonic plans to split the GF series into two lines and release a GF camera aimed at experienced photographers."
After the rather disappointing (to me anyway) GF3, there is some good news that Panasonic does intend to follow up on the GF1 rather than just having the simpler cameras to carry the GF line. Also interesting news is that the GH3 is going to be important for the company. Being a GH1 user myself, I am interested to see what Panasonic can do to the GH line to make it more appealing to the enthusiast crowd.
