If I do buy a gx1 and gx2 is released in a month, I'll sure be pi$$ed!

I would buy GX1 now:

  1. GX1 is cheap on sale for $319
  2. GX2 will be expensive, Panasonic is pushing GX model higher to compete against NEX-7
  3. GX2 won't be coming out until late Aug/Sept time frame.  Reach the store around OCT/NOV

In the mean time, I read that both GF7 and G7 is coming in late April / May time frame.  It makes sense.  GF7/G7/GX2 are essentially the same camera, but different form factor to address different market segment

- Low GF7 - smallest size possible, no hot-shoes, minimum buttons. Design to appeal to women &  point/shooters

- Middle G7 - dslr like form factor with EVF, deep grip, buttons, and hot-shoes.  Design to appeal to men & dslr enthuist

- High GX2 - classic Range Finder Style, tiny body with EVF (much like NEX-7), but also price like one too.

I think Panasonic has a very solid lineup for 2013.  With 4 separate & distinct models from GF7, G7, GX2, GH3, each is design for a specific user in mind.

Wait for GF7/G7 in May, we'll get a better idea what we can expect from GX2 in fall.
