Love the compactness, features and ergonomics
from AB, Canada
Comments about Panasonic LUMIX GX1 16 Megapixel Compact System Black Camera:
Probably the best ILC Lumix has made so far (for still photography anyway), after the GH1. Very compact, solid build, great features and excellent ergonomics with a lot of customization options. Went out and bought a second body so I don't have to switch lenses - and can still travel light. Optional viewfinder is so,so but overpriced. I would prefer to have the tilt swivel screen, even if it adds to the thickness of the camera. Other improvements I would like to see are: - return to a larger sensor to make full use of image circle when changing aspect ratios, - better dynamic range - base ISO of 100 or less with better quality / less noise on higher sensitivities - better quality lenses (12-35mm is the best so far of the zoom lenses), including a fixed focal length 10mm / f2.8 wide-angle - higher capacity battery and allowing for battery change without having to remove quick release plate - more durable LCD coating - faster processor - environmental sealing, which would make it a great trecking / backpacking tool, where weight / size / reliability are key
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice camera but ....
from Eatontown, NJ
too many gadgets, the beauty lies in simplicity. I dislike most the change of focusing area with the touch screen, which happens also with accidental touches.
