It seems that many people (including Jordan Drake) have fond memories of the GF1. Currently, the GF10 is the latest camera in that series, yet no serious photographer seems to appreciate it. The line has definitely evolved over the years into a more "consumer-oriented" product.

Should Panasonic remake the camera (GF1X, >.<) to appeal to the serious photographer? If so, what would it take to appeal to this crowd? The Olympus Pen F failed, which apparently already tried to fill a similar niche/ethos as the GF1.

A GF1X paired with the 15mm or 17mm lens would seriously compete with the Fuji X100.

I am afraid the GF1 is like an old girlfriend which is most beautiful in memory. You cannot have her back and even if she would be back you would not love her anymore.

Does that mean you are keeping her?
