    GF3? No thanks Panasonic.

    For long time ago I use to work with Canon F1-New. It was really a workhorse I could trust it. It worked fine many times far away in Himalayas. But it was heavy. Then I found MINOLTA CLE. It was a love from the first moment. Discreet, reliable and Leica M compatible.

    Then the world became digital. Many new camera models came. Surely they worked. But still it was not the same feeling. Then, one day came Panasonic wit GF1. It had similar appeal of MINOLTA CLE. I looked on it and decided to wait for GF2, hoping it would be even better. But when GF2 came it was a disappointment. Panasonic went wrong way. Touch creen, smaller and weaker battery. No thanks. I rushed and bought the GF1 with several lenses.

    It’s nice camera to work with, particularly for landscape and snapshots. It is compact, llightweight, with logical controls and, very important, relatively long lasting battery. Unfortunately, the way Panasonic is going with its GF models; it seems also to be my first and last GF camera.

    Whilst it is great to have upgraded versions (if that is what they are), I think Panasonic should spend some time to really think through what the next upgrade needs.
    I personally think the GF1 is a fab camera, and so light o carry, but the one aspect of all Panasonic cameras that I have always found a let down is the noise, above 400 ISO, forget it, or use a software to get rid of it!
    Panasonic may have tried to overcome this issue with the G3, but I have read a few reviews that say that there is more noise now at the lower ISO with this camera.
    Please Panasonic think of ask asking your customers what features they would like to see in the next model, then create something special!

    Unfortunately for Panasonic i think after the GF1 they lost their way with the GF2 and GF3. I have a GF1 and i think it’s very good with dial and buttons etc like a SLR without the bulk and decent pictures.

    But losing the dials on GF2 fro touchscreen and GF3 going even further it’s become more like a compact, if only they had continued down the initial thinking i might be upgrading then sticking to what i have.

    Another thing Panasonic has failed to to is to provide a better version of the EVF which i’m very disappointed in seems like Ideas for Life means one product release with no decent updates.

    Hope Panasonic take the various customer feedback on board

    Have red on Photo Rumors that Panasonic’s Director of DSC Business unit Ichiro Kitao confirmed Panasinic’s plans to split the Lumix GF line into consumer and professional cameras after Panasonic was criticized that their new models had less functionality/controls than their predecessors.

    So, the hope is there.

    Maybe in the near future we will get an updated GF1, way not GF1 NEW a la Canon F1 logically became F1NEW. In this way GF1 would be easily recognised as the flagship In the GF line.

    On the wish list would be:
    – Up to date sensor
    – New better EVF also compatible with the “old” GF1
    – Improved socket cover (on the left side). On GF1 it easily opens accidentally and gets damaged.
    – Same battery as “old” GF1, i.e. DMW-BLB13. Not smaller.

    Dreams? Hope not. Please Panasonic – DO IT.
