GF2; a dumbed down GF1?
Nov 5, 2010

They have come out with the GF2 to replace my GF1, giving in to current dumb-down trends.

The camera is essentially the same, function wise except for the addition of stereo sound and

a more powerful movie function. In exchange, they deleted the function dial on top which I find

very useful on any still camera and went to a touch screen while removing most of the dedicated
buttons. Apparently, they wanted to ape the quirky Sony NEX series.

Too bad.
