Re: Panasonic will announce the G100 soon.

My skeptical bet would be for some model based on GF9/GX850, but improved for vloggers.

- Panasonic talks about selfies on their Instagram announcement and GF9 was always the one model aimed at selfie shooters (and yes, in Asia girls still goes and buys them for this purpose).

- GF9 is quite basic on controls, but who cares, for selfies and vlogging you just need to use touch screen.

- Fully articulated screen or flip up screen like GF9? Both can be done, depending on the way they will approach external microphone mounting.

- Make it little bit bigger to fit in IBIS and make sure it doesn't overheat like GF9.

- No need for EVF, not useful for selfies and vlogging.

- Headphone jack will be skipped, as Sony did on ZV-1.

- Comes in bundle with 12-32 zoom.
