There certainly is room in their portfolio for something in between the LX7 and the GM1, and they do have the technology. The big question here is what to decide for the lens: the GM1 (with kit zoom) has a big sensor but a very slow lens with limited zoom range. The LX7 is exactly the opposite, a very small sensor (smaller than 1/1.7") with an extremely bright lens.
LX8 with 1 inch sensor while have either bigger size, or a slower lens (with smaller zoom range).

In order to equal a camera with a large sensor (wrt noise and DOF), a small-sensored cam needs to have a much brighter lens. But a bright lens needs to be large wrt to sensor size, while a dark lens may remain small wrt sensor size. At the end, I'm not sure that sensor size matters that much.

Well, that's perhaps in theory only...
