    DC Resource look at the m4:3 Panasonic G1

    Hi There
    I'm sure we're all looking for something a little more . . . er traditional, but Jeff Keller at DC Resource has had a look at the Panasonic G1, and it does sound pretty interesting!

    DC Resource looks at panasonic G1

    I don't much fancy the red one!

    Just this guy you know

    Not surprisingly, they're launching the G1 with two zooms, whereas the 20mm/f1.7 prime is described as being "further down the line". How much further, I wonder?

    Well, not too long I'd guess, I think this is a VERY IMPORTANT product for Panasonic, I'd guess there will be some primes from Olympus in the new year as well, and also some leica-sonic lenses.

    Hi Jono,

    Back from your holiday already? I hope you had a nice time.

    I can see what you mean about the red camera. You have to wonder how people can consider that a good idea.

    While this model does not do much to me I am hoping to see a stripped down to the essentials compact body and a nice small 50 FOV region fast prime lens. There is so much potential for this format!

    LOL it was Jeff Keller talking about the red camera, but I guess someone might like it.

    Well, it didn't do much for me to start with, but the general enthusiasm, the huge praise for the EVF, the small size and the apparently excellent autofocus, together with the flip out LCD . . . . it does sound rather attractive as a backup, and the image quality ought to be pretty good up to 1600 ISO or so.

    LOL I'm getting a red one. I've never owned anything but black cameras, so in my old age, I say it's time for some STYLE, baby!

    Of course you can, Jono. As long as you have the blue g1 with you, no boring ol' black cameras allowed!

    G1 is slotted for mid November release in the USA Guy
    Pricing will be announced in early October

    I dont think the Olympus mFT design has been frozen yet, so there may still be time to influence their decisions moderately
