A leaked hands-on by TechRadar reveals Panasonic's new Lumix GF6: a beginner-friendly interchangeable lens shooter, that fills a gap between compact point-and-shoots and more complex mirrorless and DSLR cameras.

According to the hands-on, the new camera includes the same 16-megapixel sensor as Panasonic's GX1, alongside built-in NFC, Wi-Fi, a tilting electrostatic touchscreen, and a new Venus engine which should, apparently, help with imaging performance. After a brief hands-on, the folks at TechRadar seemed impressed by the responsiveness of the touchscreen, and a new retouch function, which allows for some in-camera editing.

According to TechRadar, the camera will be priced at around $650, which will include a 14-42mm kit lens. There's no word on when the camera will be available. [TechRadar via Engadget]

Pretty...but not as pretty as the Fujifilm X100S which showed up in our office on Monday:

We have looked at many digital cameras over the years and the Fujifilm X100S is the first one to impress us its right-out-of-the-box results.

While the interchangeable lens is nice feature, we believe that it takes away from the compactness of these types of cameras. Still, as they get more capable, they may offer a real challenge to the DSLRs.
