G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

I was losing the light very quickly sorry for the blecchhhhh shots with motion blur but I was already up to 1600 ISO. This should give you a good idea of size.
















With the GRD and TS! (waterproof thrown in the mix)

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

Thanks Terry. Good size comparison. It actually looks as though if you cut off the grip on the G1--and the protuberance front and rear of the EVF (and of course the 'hump')--there wouldn't be a lot of difference. So--somehow they (Panny and Oly) will have to figure out how to fit an EVF into the camera to keep at least the G1 size (or a decent external EVF). I like the grip on the EP-1--i added the Franiec grip to my G9 and that's enough--as I think the EP-1 would be--esp. since it has the leather/leatherette.

The other thing I like about it are the clean lines--the recessed mode dial, etc. The 14-42 is obviously smaller too (but without hood) and we know how small/light the 14-45 is.

Thanks so much--off to bed here on the east coast. I'll be looking forward to images from it in the next few days--or maybe by the weekend. Glad someone on this side of the pond finally has one.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

The E-p1 feels much smaller than the G1 in the hand partially because I seem to hold it differently. I met Godfrey for some coffee and he has the SD card with those shots on it. Hopefully he will post them later tonight or in the AM. I have a couple of shots but was losing battery and light very quickly by the time I got back to the city.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

the oly seems not that much smaller really.
i like the grip on the g1 but then i try to add a grip to all my cameras.

i wonder about the oly being pocketable as compared the something like the grd, now that is a small camera.

i'm starting to think of the oly as a second body when/if they are eve sold w/o lens.
for me, the panasonic 20/1.7 is still the next lens on the list.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

While it doesn't look all that much different, I hold the two very differently. On the G1 I always grab it from the grip. On the E-P1 I seem to take my left hand Here is a low res self portrait with my iPhone.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

Hi Terry,

interesting comparaison !

I saw the smallest of the 4 is the Lumix TS1, and it is water- and dustproof. That would be interesting for my holidays !
Do you have pictures made with it yet ?
I couldn't find much about this camera on the net

C U,
Rafael

That's the direction I will go--or perhaps whatever Panasonic comes out with in the Fall. I'm happy enough with the G1 overall--attracted a lot probably by the EP-1's design, but in the end I've only ordered the 17 f/2.8 lens. I feel sure i will buy the 20 and then may sell the 17, but decided for the summer I really wanted the small faster lens for a one lens combo on the Y strap or tucked into a small handbag. Add my Konica 40 f/1.7 slipped into a pocket, and I'd be set for 90% of my shooting I bet (other than travel where I'd carry a small bag with 9-18 and 14-45 I would guess--I find, as with my Canons, I rarely shoot above 90-135mm).

Did u get the 17 mm??? I only see the kit zoom.

Did ur retailer have any 17's??? I heard a rumor that they will be initially in short supply.

hmmm, i hadn't thought about what panasonic might do next. the 20/1.7 will be appreciated here more in winter when my shooting is mostly done in available darkness.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

No I ended up with the zoom kit and I will have to get the 17 lens on its own. I haven't decided on viewfinder yet. Not sure when the 17mm kit is shipping which was the problem for me (if I wanted to take the camera on my holidays). Once more people have the 17 kit I could sell the 14-42 to someone who needs one.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

We are getting 17mm inventory in on Friday, but I'm not sure how many. The Olympus rep stated that initial orders are 2:1 in favor of the 17mm kit over the zoom kit. If that holds up, it bodes well for more primes.

Terry, IF I end up with the EP-1--and I am getting the 17 now---I'll use my CV 35mm VF. I bet it will be brighter--and it does have parallax error lines. I've already adapted to using it for 4:3--and of course with the EP-1 you aren't kept to that aspect ratio anyhow---I really like the 6 x 6. I expect the CV is pricier than the Oly, but thought you might have one left from rangefinders.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

Great visual comparisons. Two quick questions:

1. Would the relative size of the E-P1 to the D-Lux 4 be about the same as to the GRD?

2. Have you run into heating up with the E-P1, as I have read about that from two different users in different forums. I have never had a hot -- literally or figuratively -- camera and wonder about it, especially since I live in Florida.

Re: G1 vs. E-P1 size comparison

I'm pretty sure the LX3 is bigger than the GRD. First off the lens sticks out on the LX3.

No issues with heating here.
