GF1 - A Landmark Camera

I ran across this article and at first thought it was rather dated until I noticed the Nov. 21. 2011 date.

"Considering that it’s been more than two years since the GF1 was introduced it’s surprising how relevant it still feels. No other camera has really arrived at that sweet spot between compactness, handling and image quality with the same poise – it’s descendants, siblings and various competitors all held back by over-simplification, poor handling, or lackluster lenses."

"For capturing the ebb and flow of day to day life there’s very little to improve upon. The GF1 is much more than just the sum of it’s parts, turning it into a true landmark in digital photography and possibly my favorite camera of all time."

Even with the introduction of the GX1, I still wasn't motivated to part with the GF1. In fact, just yesterday I was down in Los Angels at the Getty and had a great time with it. Still my favorite camera, and evidently, it's his too!
