The GX1's design hearkens back to that of the GF1.

New lens

Panasonic will offer a kit of the GX1 with the new power zoom 14-42mm X series lens.

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.

Return of the mode dial

The mode dial dropped between the GF1 and GF2 reappears here.

Power zoom

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.
