    From Pana:

    By adding the new pink to the conventional color variation of black, red, silver and white, the DMC-GF1 further enhances its reputation of bringing pleasure and excitement to owning a high quality camera in the digital era.
    The lens is still black and grey though.

    I was thinking I screwed up when I sent a black one in for IR conversion -- should have sprung for a red one, or now this option

    Better not show up with a Pink GF1 to the workshop.

    Just kidding but don't show that to my wife or daughter they will want one.

    I'd have thought it was vital to show up with that at the Workshop . . . almost as good as having a pink p65+

    Just this guy you know

    Yup,
    I tried to find a red one in stock for IR conversion but failed to find anything that would arrive in a short time. Thinking about it now, a white gf1 would have served as well.

    I got a white half case for my IR camera for easy identification.

    What's to say but 'oh my'. I'm not really a 'pink' person--red possibly, but not sure I'd ever have the nerve to pull this out of a bag LOL. Not sure why, but this reminds me of the "Peach Orchard' segment in "Akira Kurosawa's Dreams" (movie).

    Just sent this announcement to my wife. It's quite possible I'll end up getting my hands on her G1 so I can do an IR conversion to it after she buys this =).

    An IR cam is easily marked. Just put a red sticker on the golden L .

    BTW, I am betting that the pink Pana will look white in IR.

    What isn't clear is whether or not they will make a version that has multiple languages. Japanese local models don't include English as a menu choice.

    Heh. I would rather they make more 7-14mm than offer more colors. We have had 7-14s on order since August and have received a grand total of ONE UNIT.
