    Panasonic was clever

    They coloured the skin of the G2 more like the underneath body colour than the G1's so when it starts peeling, people are less likely to notice.

    hmm ... so is this an example of machine learning?

    I have been looking for matching colored lenses, mics, flash (have they sold any?!), straps, accessories- even a body cap...

    You'd think it would be a pretty good secondary source of income for them, maybe not as lucrative as lenses. I even had a G1 hat made.

    Only if the camera changed its own skin colour.

    I do not recall if Pana made various colored camera bags.

    Rich, You are giving away too many ideas...Pana might surprise everyone by offering various skins for the cams so that along with the touch screen, it would be close to an i-Pod experience.

    I'd like two things: Pentax to redo the rainbow KX so that instead of different coloured panels, they just mixed the colours into a swirled slurry, then cast the body parts, and I'd like the chameleon colour they put on cars a few years back to be put on the G2!!
