    I did it! I made the switch to the four thirds format and I am glad I did.(Not that I have alot of old lenses) If you have a standard sized DSLR you will appreciate the size and weight immediatly. This is by no means a pockatable camera.. but more like a camera that you will carry in one hand with a wrist strap attached. For the money this camera will blow you away. It quickly shoots sharp, well exposed photos that look great, both with and without the flash. The camera is reserved about bumping up the ISO speed in auto…so this means even photos taken inside with the flash within flash range will be taken at ISO 250 or lower. So for all of those who have read that this camera does not have the best photo quality at high ISO speeds… over 800 it doesnt really matter, as most photo situations will not require it to. The auto white balance is excellent.. but if you want even better photos manually quickly and easily set the WB via the touch screen and WOW, WOW, WOW! I also have a Canon Rebel XSI that I have compared to this camera. The reality is that they both take great well exposed photos, the difference is that The Panasonics auto focus Does Not Miss. When it focus and locks.. you are 99% garanteed to capture a sharp well exposed photo… as long as you don’t shake the camera. With the Canon it focused and locked but I noticed only about 90% of these pictures would be sharp. The Canon also produces much softer pictures in general but I guess this is a matter of personal preferance. In short with the Panasonic in hand, I feel that I end up with more great pics at the end of the day. I feel good knowing that I’m going to get great pictures when I am on vaction or at an indoor party. The Panasonic is an excellent all around camera. The picture quality is so good that most people will not be able to tell the difference between this and a high end DSLR. The differences are just too suttle to notice. So don’t just look, go ahead and get one of these cameras.. it is awesome. 90 plus percent of you will love it. Trust me! It basically offers all of the ease and new technologies of point and shoots, combined with DSLR quality photos with DSLR flexibility. By the way this camera is very well constructed and has a great rubber/velvet feel. I am now looking for a buyer for my Canon XSI…………LOL

    I bought this because it is a full-featured camera that is reasonably compact. At 5’1″, 110 lb, 70 year old female, I didn’t want to be packing around a full sized DSLR and its large accessories. I had been tracking this camera’s development for several years. I was quite tempted to buy some of the previous versions but felt they weren’t “quite there yet” but decided to get on board with the G2. The controls are very well organized and quite user friendly. The camera has a quality feel to it and is pleasant to handle. I have gotten several complements on its appearance. The only downside is there are not that many lenses available for it yet but what there are cover a good range and seem to be pretty decent lenses. The lenses for this camera are also more compact than regular DSLR lenses. So far I am quite pleased with this product.

    Love my G2, June 25, 2011

    This review is from: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 12.1 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3-Inch Touch Screen LCD and 14-42mm Lumix G VARIO f/3.5-5.6 MEGA OIS Lens (Blue) (Electronics)

    Received this camera as a birthday present in November and I’ve shot thousands of photos since. I gave it some extensive use before writing this review… you just can’t write relevant reviews on things without spending the proper amount of time on it, especially cameras. Obviously like any product it has it’s strengths and weaknesses, but overall the G2 is such a joy to use and a perfect camera for my needs. I wanted a compact lightweight camera that still has all the features of the larger DSLRs and this is it. The G2 might look like a DSLR from the photos online but set it next to a Nikon D5000 and you will realize how small it really is! Size is definitely the main factor for buying a Micro4/3 camera. I can bring it with me almost anywhere I go and I don’t feel weighed down with all the bulk. If you’re leaving your heavy DSLR at home all the time because it’s too big then what’s the point right?

    Another thing I love about the G2 is how functional it is. Don’t be intimidated with all the dials and buttons, they’re a good thing. I love how most of the important functions can be directly accessed on the camera body. I hate having to scroll through the menu to change a setting! Because of this the camera handles brilliantly. I can adjust or change all the settings without taking my eyes off the subject. The touch screen is cool, but I don’t use it too much. It is a redundant system so it’s up to you if you want to use it or not. Unfortunately Panasonic is going the opposite direction with the G3. Seems like they’ve really simplified the form on it to focus on touch-screen functionality. Now I’ve never handled the G3 so it might be a great camera, but I like my dials and switches. :)

    Now let’s talk about image quality. The G2 is capable of some beautiful photos, but not in all situations. Indoor low light shots are disappointing with the kit lens, not terrible, but not great. Definitely look into the 20mm pancake lens if you shoot a lot of indoor stuff. I know it’s more money you have to spend but isn’t that the whole point of buying an interchangeable lens camera? I do mostly outdoor photography and the G2 produces some great photos. I have uploaded some samples in the image gallery. It is definitely a step up from what’s capable with point and shoot cameras and I would say can hold it’s own against most entry level DSLRs.

    Some more quick notes: I love the blue color, it’s a nice change from the sea of black cameras out there. Battery life is excellent I managed to pull off 500 shots on one battery once! I still have a back-up battery though, old habit. Invest in a fast SD card, its worth it.

    Conclusion: If you are looking for a compact and lightweight alternative to mainstream DSLRs, I would put this on your list.
