    G1 orientation sensor

    I just got myself a used Panasonic G1 in pristine condition on eBay. So far I'm pretty happy but one thing puzzles me. Vertical images load sideways in Adobe Bridge and Camera Raw. I was under the impression that the camera has an orientation sensor. That's pretty much standard on cameras these days. So far I can't see an option to enable/disable this in the menus. Am I missing something here or does this camera not have an orientation sensor?

    Panny decided to put the orientation sensor in their lenses, not in the body.

    Wow, really? I'm currently using all legacy 4/3 lenses so that might explain the problem. Are you sure?

    Yes,
    It was confirmed by Andy Westlake one of the reviewers at DPReview. I believe it was also in the GF1 review. The orientation sensor is in lenses with OIS. So, on my G1/GH1/GF1, the 20mm and 7-14 don't rotate but the 14-45, 45-200 and 14-140 do rotate the images.

    Ok, Thanks Terry. This is a bit of a bummer. I expect to buy the 20mm 1,7 soon so I guess it will not have the orientation sensor if it's married to the OIS.
