For those who have a GX1...
Dec 29, 2011

Let me begin by saying I was really disappointed by the GX1 preview on two missing items. I really expected a built-in EVF and an articulated LCD. Those two things really put me off. However; the fast AF, larger sensor and better noise control at high ISO settings may be enough for me to sell the GF1 and replace it with the GX1.

I've not been able to get my hands on one of them yet and I do have some questions I would like to ask of those of you who have the GX1 in your possession.

Questions:

What doesn't work for you with the GX1?

If you have the EVF how much better is it than the one for the GF1?

Larger sensor but same amount of real-estate.. do you see any drawbacks?

Has the camera failed to perform in any manner?

Is the Dynamic Range appreciably better than that of the GF1?

Thanks in advance... I love my GF1, the form factor, etc.. but the AF can be slow at times and the most outstanding thing I have heard about the GX1 is the speed of the AF.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
