    – 12MP sensor ?
    – Maximum ISO of 12,800 ?

    Please Panasonic idiots make it half the size. After all it’s as huge as infants hand. WTF is wrong with those shrinking idiots?

  • Eug

    Sorry, but why 5?!!!!

    • In japan the number 4 is considered an unlucky number because in japanese 4 is pronounced shi, that have the same pronunciation of the work death, (the 9 is the same, pronunced ku, same as agony).

      This thing is very taken into consideration, note that even some buildings don’t have the floor 4 and 9, or hospitals don’t have the room 4-9, and in some planes there isn’t the seat 4 or 9.

      So would be tremendously unlucky name the camera Panasonic GF4

        I guess Nikon wants to bring doom to all the D4 users…. yeah…. no.

          D4 is for pros, most of which do not live in Japan.
          GF5 is for consumers, most of which do live in Japan.

            What an idiotic statement.

      • an nonymous

        yeah I was thinking the same, also in Chinese number 4 (si) = death, a bad omen.

        • an nonymous

          Forgot to mention.. Lumix did skimp on the number order regime also when the DMC-LX3 predecessor came out and go the name DMC-LX5 instead of DMC-LX4.

          • an nonymous


            predecessor –> successor

    • pooh

      You had 18 months to comment on this when the LX5 was released, yet you missed the chance.

      • Not Surprised

        Man, the comments are brutal today… got manners?

        Thanks for the preview, Admin!
