An image of an upcoming Micro Four Thirds digital camera from Panasonic was supposedly leaked recently although some observers have some doubts on the reliability of the supposed image of the Panasonic Lumix GF 5.

The leaked image shows that the Panasonic Lumix GF 5 looks like a combination of the body of the Panasonic Lumix GF3 and the grip of the Panasonic Lumix GF1. The upcoming offering of Panasonic will feature a twelve-megapixel sensor that has an enhanced signal-to-noise ration which will give it a quality similar to the Panasonic Lumix GF3.

The Panasonic Lumix GF 5 will also feature an ISO of up to 12800 while the autofocus is reportedly fast. The fact that the image looked like a vintage filtered photo and the skipping of a number from the Panasonic Lumix GF3 has resulted to doubts on the veracity of the supposed image.

However if the leaked image is genuine, the Panasonic Lumix GF 5 will hint that Panasonic is branching its Micro Four Thirds series to two directions, for the serious photographers and ordinary photography enthusiasts. The G, the GH, and the  GX series of camera is designed mainly for serious photographers while the GF series has less features and controls compared to the firmer.

Since the Panasonic Lumix GF 3 was not much of a success, some observers are speculating if the Panasonic Lumix GF 5 will be able to help flagging sales of the company.
