X10 or G3 Help Me Decide
Nov 1, 2011

The Panasonic G3 with a 14-42mm kit lens is only $30 more than the X10. The G3 MFT sensor is significantly bigger with 18mp resolution. The G3 is more versatile due to interchangeable lenses. The G3's EVF is more informative than the OVF in the X10. They're not that much different size wise.

On the other hand the X10 retro styling is really kool. The fixed zoom lens is faster and covers more focal length. The, the, the..........actually I can't think of any other advantages the X10 might have. Am I missing any?

Does the retro styling and faster, wider and longer zoom lens of the X10 compensate for its smaller sensor and loss of lens versatiltiy compared with the G3?
