Panasonic has always embraced the philosophy of having small cameras with a very big sensor: and today’s announcement of the GM5 is no different. This camera is targeted at the photographer that wants something incredibly compact–dare we say pocketable. The camera, which is available in either black or red, sports a magnesium body with a 1,165K dot EVF, had a 921K 3 inch touch screen WiFi, 60p video, and allows for editing to be done in the camera.

At its heart is a 16MP Four Thirds size sensor–and that allows the camera to shoot 5fps. When it launches at the start of November, you’ll be able to pick it up at an $899 price point.

Also being announced today is the new Panasonic 14mm f2.5–which has six elements in five groups with 3 aspherical elements. Additionally, it sports seven aperture blades. More info and photos are after the jump.
