Compact-ish

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.

Combo controls

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.
