The very first image of the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 was supposedly leaked by a trigger-happy Instagram user named Angelababy who posted the image to her user profile, according to 4/3 Rumors.
A quick check of her account shows the image has since been removed, but the rumor site speculates that Angelbaby could be a model involved in a commercial shoot with the new camera.
Meanwhile, a secondary source has also provided leaked images of the GF5, which is shown to be available in black and white. The source of the leak goes so far as to say the low-light performance of the GF5 could be as good as Canon's mid-range dSLRs, the EOS 7D and 60D.
Judging by aesthetics alone, we think the design of the GF5 doesn't stray too far from the older GF3.
Panasonic has declined to comment.
