Panasonic G3 - Lousy build quality.
Aug 14, 2011

Panasonic also advertizes use of aluminum but it is used only for the front panel. Back is plastic. Since it is plastic, it would have been even easier for them to have a lap joint to seal things better rather than having a gaping butt joint exposing shiny internals. Aren't they even not worried about dust getting in to all mission critical parts?

More text with pictures.

Does not suit Panasonic to do it this way for a product of its class.
