Panasonic appears to be so eager to let the world know about two more additions to their Micro Four Thirds collection, they've leaked photos of their own cameras to the web. Say hello to the Panasonic G2 and G10.

The photos are no longer available on Panasonic's website. Apparently, they were accidentally published a tad to early, but someone was paying attention and now they're everywhere. The Internet is a beautiful thing.

At first glance, I wouldn't have guessed these cameras to be Micro Four Thirds models, as that's the lens mount system these cameras have. They look more like DSLRs, albeit baby DSLRs, but that's part of what makes Micro Four Thirds camera what it is: a compact body with a DSLR soul.

Their measurements also reveal a MFT frame as well. The G2 weighs 13.09-ounces (body only) and measures in at 4.88 x 3.29 x 2.91-inches. The G10 should have identical dimensions but it weighs a bit less at 11.85-ounces (body only).

There are some specs floating around the web, and since there hasn't been an official announcement yet, they're all debatable and some sites are now questioning their authenticity. But here's what Photo Rumors had to say: both the G2 and the G10 will have 12.1-megapixel sensors, touchscreen displays with touch shutter options and an ISO range from 100 to 6,200.

Differences come down recording modes, as the G2 will carry AVCHD Lite, while the G10 will shoot motion JPEGs. The G2 also has a 3-inch flip-out screen, as pictured above. It also looks like the G10 will have HDMI output, as the G2 doesn't have anything on it, but again that information could change.

Again, we won't know anything official until March 7 probably, as that's when Panasonic has some kind of announcement already scheduled.
