Panasonic has taken the wraps of its new LUMIX DMC-GF5 Micro Four Thirds digital camera

There has been quite a bit of pre-announcement discussion about what kind of features might be added to Panasonic's latest member of its LUMIX G Series of Micro Four Thirds digital cameras. As it transpired, the new LUMIX DMC-GF5 interchangeable lens camera was not the marked improvement on last year's GF3 that we'd hoped it would be. That said, it has been given a new sensor and rehashed imaging engine, an improved user interface with the opportunity to automatically optimize settings based on images snapped by professional photographers, and it will be available with a power zoom kit lens.  Read More
