My first thought when I saw the GX1 preview at Imaging-Resource was: hey, that's an Olympus E-PL1 (or 2)!

Seriously - maybe the GX1 is a bit classier looking - matter of taste - and better built. But the main features are practically identical. (pop-up flash, EVF add-on takes up hotshoe, few buttons on back (though better chosen), retro shape and handgrip...)

To me, this looks like Panasonic giving Olympus the sincerest form of flattery.

Lol, though I must admit I agree, Oly E-Px are all beautiful cameras, but the E-PLx lines
do look decidedly cheap to me.

After the E-Px line, I do think the GF1 and GX1 come next when it comes to the looks department. Form wise, well, sorry, the Panny lines tramples the pen lines

Course, that's ALL my PERSONAL opinion which, unfortunately, it's worth much lol
