One month to go until the Photokina in Cologne. All photo gear related sites have started speculating about what to expect from which vendors. We’ll see… Maybe Panasonic will announce the GF1 successor, maybe even sooner (rumors go that there is an important announcement by Panasonic next week). We’ll see… With the Canon S95 and Panasonic LX5 introduced lately, I’ll wait just a few more months before I decide whether or not I’ll but a supercompact to keep my DSLR’s company…
Panasonic has released new firmware for their GF1 camera (also for the G1 and GH1 by the way). The new firmware promises faster autofocus.
In the Netherlands I’ve noticed a price drop of € 50 for the GF1 with the 20mm/1.7 pancake lens. (€ 749 now, used to be € 799 until last week).
Still in the decision making process, I’ve also considered the new G2 camera but I think it’s too big for a compact. At least for what I’ve in mind. However I do appreciate the built-in viewfinder!
