they should play on the size aspect, small and compact - retro like the GX7 will appeal to a huge market of hipsters who like taking photos and also wants something that looks good around their necks.

well, maybe Olympus might attract some hipsters, but Panasonic won't. it's just "too mainstream", and not prestigious enough. after all, there are no vintage Panasonic film cameras. remember, the hipsters use iPhones, not Nokias, MacBooks, not Lenovo Thinkpads. now, if Leica were to re-badge the GX7, that would be a different story.
