Panasonic GF1 Sept 1 Leak

Panasonic's Lumix GF1 could get an announcement in three weeks based on a invitation that was briefly posted in a Chinese forum. The image lists an "unvealing" (potentially a play on words) for a new Lumix model in a two-day event that starts September 1st. A silhouette in the shot appears to match that of the GF1.

While the legitimacy of the teaser itself isn't certain, particularly given the spelling of the invitation, it comes from the same forum that spawned the initial, accurate GF1 product brochure and puts the unveiling at a time when many camera makers launch new models for the fall.

The GF1 is Panasonic's answer to the Olympus E-P1 and has a large but compact-like body with removable lenses through the Micro Four Thirds system. A built-in flash will give it an edge over the earlier camera, but it will still lack a dedicated viewfinder.
