Is the GF image quality up to the G1?
Jun 12, 2010

I have a G1 with a 20mm 1.7. Gives good results and the lens is great.

However the G1 drives me nuts the way the settings are apt to change everytime I go to use it. Unless I check everything every time I go to use it I find I have been shooting with weird ISO or white balance settings etc. Also its size is neither compact nor pocketable. Might as well be SLR size.

I am only knocking the convenience of the G1, not its image quality with the 20mm lens, which is great.

So I was about to put the camera and lens on ebay but thought I'd investigate any other possibilty of keeping the lens. Dpreview is positively hysterical about the 20mm combined with the GF1 and I was wondering if anyone here has any thoughts about this combination as opposed to the G1/20mm setup?


Perhaps I should mention that I have a DSLR and a couple of long lenses, so I want the small camera for travel and as a walkaround.
