Owning a Nikon D80 DSLR. I've gotten used the fast response of the mirrored systems. I decided to get a backup camera that also did video. On a budget, I decided to purchase the Lumix G2 my first mirrorless camera. I was skeptical about the quality of a mirrorless DSLR, but to my surprise the quality of the photos turned out great, crisp, clear, and detailed. The compact size makes this camera a good backup camera, and a good camera to bring on trips since it is a smaller size DSLR. My only ...

I had previously the good G1, I have now the G2 for more than a year, it is a good successor to the G1 I liked the implementation of the touch features Image quality is really good for this sensor size, and ergonomics are good as the built quality Other thing I am pleased with is the quality of the Panasonic Lumix lenses and the ones made by Panasonic and Leica For those who don't need video much this is a very good choice and now the price is really good I don't fell the need to have more ...

One year ago one of the reasons for choosing the Panasonic G2 was that the range of available lenses was better than that for Sony NEX or Samsung NX cameras. The micro four thirds lens range currently covers 35 mm equivalent focal lengths from 14 to 600mm and contains macro and fisheye lenses and as well as four other fixed focal length lenses, including the f0.95 Voigtlaender. Thus the lens range continues to improve and is still superior to the mirrorless rivals. Though the G2 is relatively ...

This camera is good, but flawed. First of all, its handling is excellent. Panasonic's designers must have spent quite a long time studying how people interact with cameras. Every button is in its place, most of them feel very different and are easy to find by touch only. I also love the drive mode lever, it makes it very easy to go from single-shot to continuous drive to self-timer (for tripod pictures). Tilt-and-swivel LCD is great for street photography! I can't imagine going back to a ...

I purchased this camera from amazon for £504 with an additional £30 cashback which represented good value at the time, I am of the general opinion that this camera was more over priced compared to the competition than usual and if it were not for these reductions I would not have purchased this model at this time, by the time you read this prices will have dropped even more no doubt and it should be even better value The camera is easy and fun to use, and should appeal to point and shoot ...

Good camera in a whole new class of cameras. Two of the "reviewers" apparently never owned the camera which is why I rated it somewhat higher than I might have otherwise. Don/t trust any review that doesn't say when they got the camera. DoctorJerry Problems: Nope

The mediocre quality of the lenses, very slow processor , and unsatisfactory in-camera jpeg processing have convinced me to move away from the micro-four thirds system. If Panasonic’s technological / optical / user interface improvements were half as good as the superlative hype which surrounded the announcement of this camera, it would be by far the best photographic instrument out there. As is, the G2 has minimal real improvements over G1 / GH1 (indeed it has taken a step backward in some ...

Solid Build, Excellent feature set, great handling. I'm very happy with the G2. When I needed an upgrade from my superzoom cam I wanted the features and feel of a DSLR but I don't like all the bulk (I'm used to my old 35mm SLR) so the G2 fit the bill perfectly. I'm really impressed at how quick and snappy this camera is compared to a few DSLR's I've used, I think it can compete with any entry level DSLR's and even some mid-range ones. In my opinion Image quality is on par with anything in ...

This is my second 4/3's camera. I had owned an E-P2 with it's fantastic EVF, for about 7 months before it got stolen last week when traveling thru Vancouver. Taking a ton of pictures in Toronto, Banff & Vancouver, I was starting to grow accustomed with the E-P2's cumbersome menu system and then suddenly it was stolen. That's life I guess. The jpegs from the Oly were great out of the camera without pp and I only took RAW in really difficult indoor lighting where I had difficulty with the ...
