Panasonic Lumix G1

We've given the G1 a grade of B.

Editor's Review

The Panasonic G1 is a very unique camera, using the "Micro Four Thirds" technology to give users an advanced digital camera that's part SLR and part point-and-shoot. The G1 sits somewhere in-between those classifications. It has interchangeable lenses, but it's also small, lightweight, and compact. It was a pioneer in the mirrorless camera market, which has now grown to more than a dozen cameras from four manufacturers. It is a bit older now, so we'd recommend taking a look at one of the newer M43 models, like the G2 or the cheaper G10.

Small and impressive (michael h — 02/13/2009)

I have owned many, many digital cameras. In the case of the G1 I was looking for an slr that was small and very sophisticated in terms of it's capabilities. The G1 offers these attributes. I am looking very forward to seeing more lenses from Panasonic/leica.
