tartamillo: I'd buy it today if:
- it had a multispect ratio sensor, like the LX3/LX5
- it had a built-in EVF and an optional external flash rather than the contrary
- there was a 12-35 pancake zoom available
- there was a wireless remote (it's 2011, folks!)

That would be a terrific mountaineering camera, but it isn't, so I'm sticking with my LX-3. I can pass on the remote, but the rest is necessary.
This is not complaint, but a wish. Please Panasonic, please...

The GX-1 will not give me a better image quality (it lacks the lens), only pixel quality. I shot mostly in good light, so the LX3 image quality is ok, to me at least.

The main reasons why I bought the LX3 are the 24-60 lens and the sensor that maintains the same diagonal angle of view with all ratios. It's not like cropping, read the reviews. The GH1 already has that kind of sensor. What I miss is a decent macro and the ability to sometimes mount a tele lens. Plus, often, the ability to properly frame in bright light. Give me the ability to change lens, take away the flash I never ever use, replace it with a built-in EVF and it's perfect. Being there, a bigger sensor is always welcome, of course, but not that needed.

It's nothing strange or expensive, just a different feature set, all possible today except for the lens.

As I said, I'm not complaining, it's just a wish for the next release. :-)

The NEX-7 is interesting, but still no 24-xx compact lens for that camera.
