agilestyle: I have expectations on the G1X... broken on rocks when i see this gallery.
What do not impress me at all here is the BOKEH.
Is only visible by shooting at 60.1, where the max aperture is forced to F5.8.
There are no traces of it at wider angle:, no surprise here, cause the lens is far by being fast.
This is a clear compromise imposed by fitting a compact broad-uses-zoom (no complains to Canon).
If i'd choose the G1X, i have to forget the great creativity that the 20-1.7 and 45-1.8 lenses allow me on my GF1.
What i'd get is a good quality camera, with high ISO capabilities, that avoid bringing some extra lenses with me, but that doesn't excels in any particular area and, i am sure of it, makes my shots more "average".
Please do not start crying with the "it's not the camera, is the photographer" litany, if u shot with a small-camera-fast-lens-combo u understand what i'm talkning about.
That said, i suppose it will be an high-quality, compact, "average" camera.
Best regards.

Lenstip.com also have posted some outside shots taken with the G1X.
I must admit that their gallery is much more encouraging: blur areas are visible also at 15mm F2.8, and IQ is very acceptable even at ISO 12800.
Also interesting is that shooting at 1/20s seem to give you crisp results, meaning that the IS on lens is very effective.
I am really happy since, i repeat, i want to like this PRO G camera.
@howordroark: to me control over DOF is an important topic. This, together with IQ even at HI-ISO, distinguishes a PRO camera from the P&S/small-sensor ones.
That said, we have to wait to put our hands on the first production camera.

In reply to:

VadymA: And note that this is F5.8. The bokeh at F2.8 should be even better.

At 60.4mm is impossible to force aperture to F2.8.
Check the aperture tables on the DPR preview.

CONS:
1. no manual focus on lens
2. slow lens, at least compared to m4/3 primes
3. no EVF (the oprical one, if similar to my old G7 is super crappy)
PROS:
1. stabilized lens
2. wide range zoom
3. build quality
For me, not having control on the lens (F and focus) put this camera out of the games.
Sorry Canon!

Bulky and expensive!
Given the numbers above, a presumable 35mm kit will come at least at 2300$.
With that bucks you can buy a Canon 5d Mark 2 body sparing 200$ to invest into some serious glass...
Ok, mirrorless camera are the fashion of the moment, but i am happy with my GF1+20mm kit at 700$.
Sorry pals, target missed!

On SLR Magic announces 23mm F1.7 for Sony NEX's E-mount article (60 comments in total)

Why the hell this lens is so huge while the Panny 20mm F1.7 is a quarter shorter and comes with AF?
Are the Nex system lenses all plagued by fattness?
Please, make some decent pancacke lens, instead of these heavyweight piece of metal!

GodSpeaks: Unlike what many think, this (as are all RF type cameras) is a P&S replacement, *NOT* a DSLR replacement. So I can see why movies are important.

That said, the GX1 is no substitute for the NEX-7. Sony has trumped the GX1 in spades and, once again, Panasonic falls short.

And what's with this iA button BS. Leave iA in the menus and give use a user defineable button instead.

Because many of us hoped for a NEX-7 contender maybe?

Arrrgggghhhhhh!!!
What i found a real pain with my GF1 is the rusty dual-dial that controls practically everything on the camera: don't get me worng i like the interface (only one dial), but i found it small and slow.
When i tried the G3 i thought: great camera! But its dial is even smaller than that on my GF1!
Now i see that the GX1 has the same crappy dial than the G3, with no integrated EVF and no articulated screen, but, well, it costs more than a G3... Have i missed something or at Panasonic got some confusion?

Better than NX100, but JPEG at higher ISO are very worse than Nex 5N or even G3: the noise control is strongly visible even at ISO400.
I suspect RAW files are much better.

In reply to:

Kuturgan: I found NX200's ISO performance is almost better than EP-3 and NEX-5n till ISO1600.
It is more than enough for me because I rarely use even ISO1600.
For me NX200 outperforms other sony and M4/3 EVIL cameras.
I'm totally satisfied with what I see.

R u joking or what?
Noise control is very intrusive and visible even at ISO 400 (see the banknotes on the widget). Comparing the NX200 with the Panny G3 (that has a smaller sensor) is clear how the former suffers in the IQ factor.
I suspect Samsung needs some more experience in the camera area.
