The new lens automatically collapses, so when not in use it has the same footprint of a large pancake prime. Despite the new series name, the GX1's body is based off the GF1 and GF2 bodies.

As is common with Panasonic's ILCs, the interface consists of a combination of direct-access and touch-screen controls so that you can use whichever you're more comfortable with. The camera also supports the company's plug-in EVF.

Panasonic is the first manufacturer to introduce power zoom lenses in its ILCs. The downside: no manual focus ring. Instead, there's a very point-and-shoot-like manual focus switch.
