The GX2 has the GH3 sensor according to the 4/3rd rumours site! I have been assuming the GX1 would have the G5 sensor.

When you wrote GX1, it appears that you meant GX2 again.

The G5 is based on the GH2, which is a pretty excellent sensor, especially for video. And although you don't get much manual control on the G5, you do get some pretty nice looking video from that camera.

I do hope that the GX2 has the GH3 sensor, as that would make it a really nice camera. Too bad Panny did not put that sensor into the G5, which just came out. However, I am very satisfied with the G5's output and I love the ergonomics around the EVF / grip / touch interface ... very nice.

It would be really cool of the GX1 came with a NEX style EVF ... double wow if we get that lucky ...
