Panny G6 -- I'm totally impressed!

Panny's media release:

DPReview's preproduction preview:

Stunning set of features. But why on earth did DPReview have to start their preproduction preview with a software feature that didn’t work very well? It’s just software -- it can be upgraded!!!

Concentrate on taking the pictures and video, folks. We can take the software features or leave them at this point.

The only thing missing from my wish list looking at the specs if the capability to use Olympus's wireless by light not radio feature. Yes, it’s a pretty naff feature (radio would be much better) but I have two Olympus FL36R flashes, so…

And I would like it to have shoulders like the G5 -- or a lower hump.

But, wow! Impressive! This, along with Oly's E-PL5, mark a real step up in the mid-level m43 prosumer field.

Cheers, geoff
