Panasonic GF2 Coming Tomorrow

One of my favorite mirrorless cameras is the Panasonic GF1.  In terms of form-factor, controls and image quality, the GF1 delivers a great balance.

If is accurate with its prediction, we should see the successor to the GF1 tomorrow.  It’s looking like the GF2 will have the same 12MP sensor as is found in the Panasonic G2, which is a solid performer.

If the Panasonic GF2 turns out to deliver better performance, while maintaining the friendly form-factor of the GF1, then we should have a real gem on our hands.

Stay tuned for the latest on the Panasonic GF2.


Update:  It’s already leaked in France.  Here’s proof:

Here’s how Adorama’s deal works:
