Panasonic GF2 confirmed by Paris promo shot

Panasonic's Lumix GF2 was confirmed today by a sighting of a promo. An ad for the imminent Salon de la Photo (Photography Salon) in Paris has shown the compact Micro Four Thirds camera as a "world exclusive" for the show. As the Salon begins on Thursday, 4/3 Rumors notes that it's certain the camera will be made public at the same time.

The GF2 is believed to be an even smaller take on the GF1 but with a slew of upgrades that in some cases are key to the upgrade. The design would use a touchscreen rather than just physical controls; it's not clear if the pop-up flash will survive from the GF1. More feature upgrades are coming than originally thought, since while it would still use the 12-megapixel sensor from the G2, it would have a much newer imaging processor and record 1080p video where the GF1 was limited to 720p.

Earlier rumors had the camera shipping only in early 2011, but it may have the same price as the GF1 did when new. If so, it would cost $900 for a version with either a pancake or standard zoom kit lens. The Paris photo shows an 18mm, f2.5 lens mounted on the camera.
