    G1 makes Mike Johnston's runner up as Camera of 2008

    Camera of the Year 2008: Runner-Up

    Good discussion of it.

    "The market wants a Leica to be a Leica: the inheritor of tradition, the subject of lore, and indisputably a mark of status to own."

    Very good read and reiterates what has been said here in other posts. The comments from readers are equally interesting in revealing that this little camera is quickly taking on a following and not necessarily the way Panasonic marketing may have envisioned it.

    Outback Photo has updated their G1 page with some shots taken with misc lenses:

    "We have used the G1 now for over 45 days. No camera has ever been with us that often. A special fun is using the G1 with manual Leica lenses"
