Rumors were swirling at the end of last year that the launch of the next generation Panasonic GX series camera was imminent (early reports had targeted November). But November came, and no GX2. Then December. Then CES, PMA, CP+ – and still, no GX2.
Now 43Rumors is reporting that, according to their reader Zetton who was at the CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan, we may not have to wait much longer as he told 43Rumors the following…
“While talking with the Panasonic staff, I have been told that Panasonic will release the next GX1 soon”
The GX1 is one of our favorite cameras of the last 2 years, and it delivers on multiple fronts (see review above by WhatDigitalCamera), which is why so many people are eagerly anticipating the launch of the GX2. While this rumor is far from substantiated, it does make a lot of sense as the price of the GX1 is now at it’s lowest point since it’s launch.
If you’re interested in picking up a Panasonic Lumix GX1, Amazon now has it listed for only $449 USD with a Kit lens, and Only $319 USD Body Only.
But the best deal can be found at UniquePhoto, who are running a SPECIAL DEAL on the GX1 for only $300 USD Body Only.
While you’re on UniquePhoto, you might also want to check out the Sigma 19mm and 30mm f2.8 micro 4/3 lenses, which are also on sale for only $99 each. These are excellent lenses, especially for that price, and will go great with a GX1 or any M43 camera!
