Got mine at the Camera Store (Calgary) on Monday (Dec 5)!!

Compared to my GF-1, far better handling, love the grip, "Quick Menu" is much better and fast to select items (by buttons or on screen).

Simple thing, but the on/off switch is better and I like the quick button for iA (or rather my wife will!!)

Also have the new EVF and it's great. Vast improvement over the GF-1 version!

Focus is fast, IQ is great, though still going through the paces with it. will have some concrete shots over the weekend!!

Lightroom 3.5 does not support the RAW file, but the release candidate 3.6 does (in case anyone needs to know)


social/party camera Canon S95
street/reportage Pany GX-1 (was GF-1)
Landscape/sports/wildlife Canon 7D

I just posted a few quick tests, no prize winners but it looks promising. ISO 160 is very good, 3200 looks usable, even 6400 might do for some things. 12800 forget about it.
