it exceeds almost every other camera in its class save one (or is it two) the panny lx3 and it traded bows with that camera . Geez how good does it have to be? if its already tied for best in class. I think the rating reflects this reality. The gf1 is not a small sensor point and shoot and therefor not competing in the same class. the Canon and panasonica ( as well as the Leica version) are.

Yeah but the LX3 is a year old, and not only that, the general high end compact market has changed significantly since the LX3/G10.

I think the fact that it was reviewed side by side with the GF-1, indicates that dpreview thinks it competes directly with it.

If there was no mFT on the market, maybe it wouldn't have gotten a (JUST).

I'm just happy the swivel screen has made it's return!
