Much bigger is the list of what the camera has lost. Minimum ISO climbs from 100 to 160, the rear click dial has gone, as has the stereo mic of the GF2. The flash is now top center, but the hotshoe has gone, meaning you can’t add an accessory viewfinder or a flash. WIRED.com
While we’d want to have a closer look at a full production sample it does look at this stage like Panasonic could have another winner on its hands with the GF3.
