The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 is a 12.1 megapixel camera and the first model to employ the Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens system. Specs and features include dual image processors, a high-resolution 3.0 inch LCD and electronic viewfinder, a pop-up flash and hot shoe, and a high-speed AF system with 23 focus areas.
- Excellent AF speed, precision
- Superb, well thought-out live view experience
- Plenty of image processing tools for both novices and advanced shooters
- Rugged body is still smaller than the smallest SLRs
- Excellent screen and viewfinder
- Lots of noise (for a DSLR) beyond ISO 800
- Lens mount limits options at the moment
- White balance system needs work
- Too expensive for its specs and market?
I was excited about the Lumix G1 initially, and working with the actual product has done little to dampen this enthusiasm. If you can get past the initial sticker shock, the G1 may just offer the "best of both worlds" when it comes to SLRs and point-and-shoots.
