panasonic gf1 sucessor rumor

Is Panasonic lining up a new Four Thirds (not Micro Four Thirds) DSLR camera to be released sometime soon? From the patent application, you can see that it will have live view mode, along with the traditional optical viewfinder. Other specs include a CMOS sensor, surprisingly no video recording, and a vibration reduction feature. In case you aren’t familiar with it, the Four Thirds standard retains a mirror arrangement and interchangeable lenses, but the size of image sensor and camera body can be much smaller than your normal DSLR cameras. There isn’t any pricing or release date revealed just yet, but perhaps Panasonic will be sharing more information on it at CES 2010. Remember to follow our coverage of the event!
