Panasonic GF2 - the specs look disappointing

Maybe it's a bit too early to put down the replacement to the wildly successful GF1, but it's sad to see Panasonic move this model range downwards (to a compact-like class) instead of upwards (serious-user class).

The removal of the top dial (and drive mode lever) on the GF2 is disappointing.

Many GF1 users were hoping for a better sensor, maybe a built-in viewfinder. But it didn't materialise...

EDIT (7.22pm): video intro at this year's Salon de la Photo, looks like it has a feature that allows a photo to be taken by touching on the touchscreen. Availability is Feb 2011...
