ccl2003: Is it true that the G X Vario PZ 14-42mm lens is not that good especially on max zoom? I read somewhere that max zoom produces blurry shots. I'm seriously considering the GX1 and to be honest I have no intention of changing the lens because it will function as my daily point and shoot cam. I'm hesitating in getting a Canon 550D or 600D due to their size and I'm after the GX1 due to its size, weight and performance.
Any inputs will definitely be appreciated. Thanks!
Also consider max aperture at the telephoto end, compared with the fast 45/1.8.
realsand: Nice pictures! Which will give the best indoors shots without flash? - G1X or GX1..?
Thanks but isn't the G1x's lens 'slower', so that the iso advantage is lost in the end?

Jan_Shim: Yes I do have a burning question and it's none other than the minimum focusing distance ... (cross posted as follows from comments left at Preview page)
I shoot with two 5D Mark IIs professionally and for everything else I use the G11. Essentially two very important considerations: the flip out LCD and the 1 cm macro capability (excellent feature for food photography). The G1X with all the other great features has compromised this with a focusing distance of 20cm (according to Dpreview Specs). The G1X quickly went from "high exciting" to a big let down for me.
Question: Does the bigger sensor result in a magnification at such that at 20cm, it's (by any chance?) equivalent to 1cm on the G11/12?
Please test if there is any clicking or other noise from the zoom or autofocus in a recorded video!
When recording for example a conversation indoors with no other backgroud noise and zooming and making the autofocus refocus. I would really like a sample video! I have heard af-clicking and zoom-noise noise in videos from several other cameras...
