I played with the GH1 and 14-140 today. Really aside from the new video buttton you really wouldn't know that it is any different. OK, time to lose credibility but I liked the gold (champagne colored) body.
I don't know anything about video so I'm not really equipped to do any evaluation of it. I think it will take people some practice zooming while shooting. I know I wasn't particularly steady.
The 14-140 feels pretty good. As you can imagine it is larger than the 14-45 probably about as long as the 45-200. The difference is it wider and takes a 62mm thread not a 52 like the first two lenses. It focuses quietly and fast. I put it on my G1 and took some shots. I will look through them when back in SF and post what I can.
Yes, they had a Leica M adapter mock up there. Not clear and they weren't saying when or IF it would be available. I was told if they launch an adapter, you can be sure they will sort out the issues about blurred corners on wide angle lenses.
They know people want the 20mm lenses. A coulp of people who were there were surprised they did the 7-14 first. I could not play with the 7-14mm
They read the forums and know all of the "scoop" on the camera and lenses being used. This includes the engineers.
Finally, I think Panny has to figure out who the camera is for. Surely they want to market to that demographic of women thy show in their ads but both Guy and I agree that other than iA mode the camera has an awful lot of stuff that can make it very confusing for someone with a little bit of knowledge that want to learn more. Message received and I got from that conversation was look for new cameras or software to address the issue.
Ok toooo long for iPhone and I'm falling asleep. More later.
