Pansonic Lumix GX1 Micro Four Thirds spied

Micro Four Thirds camera with touchscreen coming soon?

Panasonic has embraced Micro Four Thirds to the fullest, with a new range of lenses it now appears to have a worthy camera as well, replacing the already brilliant GF1 and GF2

Shots have leaked showing what appears to be the Panasonic GX1, a Micro Four Thirds SLR which will come in above the GF2 in terms of performance and price range.

The already brilliant Panasonic Lumix GF2 took everyone by surprise with MFT when it showed that you could mix good looks with stunning picture quality and all for less than a professional SLR. Of course while it was still a premium product it never felt like it was overpriced thanks to the range of Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses that were available for it.

The GX1 looks to be compatible with not only these lenses but also the latest premium X-Series which offers up the same zooming capabilities but in less than half the size, all of which comes together to create a very tidy package indeed.

No word on specs yet but there is talk of a touchscreen on the back which will no doubt make navigation that little bit easier, luckily there won't be long to wait as the GX1 is set to make its debut on November 8.

Is Micro Four Thirds the future or do you prefer good old SLR's? Let us know what you think via the comments box below...
