The newly-announced micro four thirds Panasonic Lumix GX1 camera is expected to ship in December, but if you live in Japan, well, it looks like the big day will be a lot sooner than that. In fact, it seems that the 16.01 megapixel Lumix GX1 -- which is the sucessor to the popular Lumix DMC-GF1 will be shipping on or about November 25th. It's also recently shown up in an unboxing video which you'll see below.

In case you've forgotten, the mirrorless Lumix GX1 has the aforementioned 16.01 megapixel Live MOS sensor, and it supports Lumix G / Leica DG lenses. The body will ship in black and silver for $699.99, with optional lens kits including the DMC-GX1-X with LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S (H-PS14042) lens for $949.99, and the DMC-GX1-K with 14-42 standard zoom for $799.99.
