No news if this is the successor to the G9 or the G90. However, I place my bet it will be the later and we will see the Gh6 series announcement later this year?

Plausible based on the name, but a G90/95 successor after less than a year and a half sounds very unusual. The G95 is still near launch price in some markets!

My money is on more loopy naming from Panasonic, and a camera that replaces the G9 and/or GH5.

"Loopy naming"; I like this! Still, G100 to succeed to either G9 or GH5 would be even loopier than usual...

Or, based on the number of digits, a barebones model that sits below the G95 in the lineup. Which would imply some consistency and logic in naming, so never mind.

And whatever happened to the GX10? A delay in both announcement and shipping doesn't surprise me in the circumstances but the complete silence (both official and rumour mill) does.

Maybe Panny was inspired by Oly's treatment of their - deep breath - M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC 1.25x IS PRO  announced nearly 1½ years ago and still nowhere to be seen...
