I don't think it will have a built-in EVF

I hope I'm wrong for Panasonic's sake, I think a direct competitor to the Nex6/7 would be good for m43. However, Panasonic spent good money on developing the LVF2 which currently only works on the GX1 and the new LX7.

I think that the GX line (if it's going to continue as a line of cameras) was planned from the beginning to always feature a detachable EVF. The G line of cameras has a built-in EVF for those who want that.

I know that's not an ideal state of affairs, but I don't think Panasonic (or any other manufacturer) is in a position to sustain enough different camera forms at similar price points to please everybody. Just like OIS over IBIS, Panasonic has made their choice.
