This preview was not supposed to go official yet, but some admin at the Tech Radar was apparently too trigger happy. The pages have now been withdrawn, but not before they ended up in the Google cache.
The New and Exciting:
Here's the early conclusion from the Tech Radar review:
"Overall, we're confident that the Panasonic GF6 will be a good performer, and it will be interesting to see how it performs in the market. With a new lower price point but the added benefits of a tilting screen, Wi-Fi and NFC, we can see this appealing to the beginner user who wants to have a lot of fun.
With quirky features such as creative filters and stop motion animation mode, this is a camera that will be appreciated by those looking for something more optically advanced than their compact or smartphone, but still featuring some of the things that make other devices so convenient.
Stay tuned for updates to this review when we get a full production sample in for testing.

Not only is the GH3 physically the largest and heaviest micro four thirds camera to date, it is so big it actually towers over some aps-c DSLRs, like the recently introduced Sony SLT A37.

For some reasons only known to Tamron's managers, the company chooses to enter the micro 4/3 format with a 14-150mm zoom, closely matching the popular Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 and the elder Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4-5.8 ASPH MEGA OIS lenses.
Now, if they had bothered to shave a millimeter or two off the wide end, it would have been really exciting news, but as it stands now, the micro 4/3 mount is served by no less than 11 zoom lenses all sharing the 14mm wide end. Is there enough playing field for the New kid? . . . read more
