Panasonic announces the Lumix DMC-GF5

Today Panasonic unveiled the successor to the DMC-GF3. Contrary to what you might expect, it's not called the DMC-GF4, but the Lumix DMC-GF5. Indeed, in Japanese culture, the number four is thought to cause bad luck because it is pronounced the same as the word for death (shi).

This new light-weight (225g) and very compact amateur hybrid camera features an optimized 12-megapixel sensor, Full HD video recording, a better-designed touchscreen, a new graphical user interface, ultra-rapid AF, etc.
