    Panasonic ditches the crappy skin

    The peelable skin coating the G1 had. The GH2 is just plastic, which is kind of disappointing because I would expect at least some high-grade rubber grip material on the body.

    Lets see if the white paint comes off the buttons in a short period of time as some of the G1's paint did.

    They are still keeping the indelible LUMIX logo in white that will outlast all the cursory prints on the buttons.

    The G1 skin will not be missed BUT the white printing on the 4Way controller WILL as it wears away with use on the G1
    I think the Bean counters forgot to pickup and look and feel the finish and quality of the L1

    Well black Leica M's worn to a nicely brassed finish seem to fetch a premium, maybe white Panasonics will be the same.
