Panasonic Lumix G3

Panasonic announced the successor to their Lumix G2 interchangeable lens camera, appropriately named the Lumix G3. The Panasonic Lumix G3 is smaller than its predecessor, has a higher resolution image sensor and comes in your choice of several colors. It has the features and flexibility you’d expect from an entry-level digital SLR model with a much more compact body and array of lenses.
