dash2k8: "Khaldei, who staged his photograph a couple of days after the event, is reported to have hoped that the image would have the same impact as Joe Rosenthal’s famous photograph ‘Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima’."

I'm sorry, but the Berlin picture is nothing close to the Iwo Jima picture. Iconic for sure, but the Iwo Jima picture is the standard of "raising banner over hostile territory" while many commoners have never even seen this Berlin picture.

You're an ignorant tool.

Perhaps most AMERICANS have never seen the Berlin pic, and perhaps an ignoramus such as yourself hasn't seen it either but Europeans have seen the picture indeed. Even as an elementary school student in Canada I had seen this picture.

WWII was about German and Russia, where Germany use 70%-80% of its military resources and lost 75%-88% of its soldiers, depending on the sources.

Everything else was a sideshow.

RedFox88: This is a camera trying to fix something that isn't broken. We don't need dials for these settings as they are better and faster controlled in other ways. This must be the camera for the mid-life crisis men in their 50s and 60s even 70s who want to try to "re-claim" their youth... and pay for it!

It appears you have an axe to grind.

By what line of "reasoning" must this "be the camera for the mid-life crisis men in their 50s and 60s even 70s who want to try to "re-claim" their youth"?

I'm a 35 year old software developer and would love to have all controls immediately available without going through bl00dy menus.

But of course you know what's best for everyone.

Though I'll take the solid black one, once I can afford it.

I wish the pentaprism were not so pointy though.

Surely you jest????

If you are not engaging in hyperbole please move to a fascist country where you and your ilk belong.

chris_van_bc: Can someone please explain what sense does it make to have a 2048 x 1536 resolution on a 9.7" screen?

Just asking.

Didn't realize it's possible to discern such density on a screen that small.

What are YOU talking about?

chris_van_bc: Put in a APS-C sensor and I'm buying it.

As long as it's within the size range of the G1X, absolutely.

I love all the manual controls.

Of course the price has to go up.

I use a D1H frequently and that admittedly is a bit bothersome to travel with and the fixed lens will remove the need to decide what lens to take, let alone the need to carry a lens.

Apart from a large sensor option from Nikon I definitely will be getting a G1X. Dream come true.

On Panasonic unveils DMC-GX1 Micro Four Thirds camera article (74 comments in total)

I had an urge to check dpreview before turning in for the night and I'm not disappointed!

I was excited by the GF1 but it had some limitations that I thought would be rectified by succeeding models, but while the GF2 and GF3 fixed what were limitations for me they went in a disappointing (for me) consumerish path.

If the IQ is excellent it will have been a worthwhile (for me) wait for a GF1 successor.

Can't wait for the review!
