Panasonic's upcoming Lumix GF1 Micro Four Thirds camera has been spotted on a Chinese forum, seemingly a more compact alternative to the company's Lumix G1.  More retro in design than the G1, the GF1 is lacking just about anything in the way of hard specifications right now, but it obviously supports interchangeable lenses together with what looks to be a pop-up flash.

There also seems to be a slot for an external viewfinder (EVF) just below the hot-shoe on top of the camera.  Rumored specifications include a 13.1-megapixel sensor, with 720p 30fps HD video recording and up to 1/4000s shutter speed.  The LCD is tipped to be 3-inches and 460k pixels.

Dimensions - again rumored - are tipped as 119 x 71 x 36.3 mm and the whole thing is said to be 285g.  Of course, these could all turn out to be inaccurate by the time the Lumix GF1 actually arrives on the market.
