Lumix DMC-GX1 | Panasonic
Amazon is selling the Panasonic Lumix GX1 for just $395 — a heavy discount from the camera's retail price of $699.99, and at least $100 cheaper than competitors like B&H.
Kenko Tokina is releasing a 400mm f/8 mirror lens for Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX cameras on Thursday in Japan. The lens will sell for around ¥22,000.
Panasonic's Lumix GX1 is an interchangeable-lens camera using the Micro Four Thirds System and shares the same Live MOS sensor as its brethren, the Lumix DMC-G3, but has a significantly improved digital image processing engine. And like its predecessors, the Lumix GF1 and GF2, it will use an external viewfinder — the tilt-shift 1.4m dot DMW-LVF2, Live View Finder.
Panasonic's Lumix GX1 interchangeable lens camera has a 16.01 megapixel Live MOS sensor and high-speed Venus Engine processing capable of pulling images at a maximum 12,800 ISO sensitivity. It will be available in December, with a price of $949.99 for the base body and lens kit.
