I find it a natural evolution from the GF1,

I don't agree with that at all. The GF1 was the solution for those seeking power and portability together, sort of a poor man's rangefinder.

The GF2 is alienating the current user base. Sure there is an audience for the GF2 but it's not the current base of the GF1. When upgrading the a product you should consider the current user base and how to get them to upgrade to the new version.

This is definetely not an upgrade from the GF1 it's a totally different line both functionally and optically.

Panasonic needed to up the low light performance and it seems it already had found a better sensor (see GH2), keep the industrial look, keep the manual control i.e. dial. and as many have suggested maybe add an EVF or increase the brightness/resolution of the display.
