Panasonic G1 wins with Sony A55
Dec 4, 2010

I was looking for a small but with great IQ camera. Originally, I was interested in sony A55 but after watching some videos and stills from both manufactures Panasonic wins.

The video from Sony is not great. I did not see any half decent. AF tracking is not everything: my camcorder can do it.
The high iso from sony is overstated it lacks details and life.
Panasonic stills from 14-45 are just great. Sony 18-55mm lens is very average

Finally, Sony camera advertised as small is not much smaller than Nikon D5000 while G1 with the lens is just perfect for me. I did not mention the price. I may go for GH2 if the price drops.
Sony has portrait lenses with AF and GPS but it was not enough for me.
