The G2 is Panasonic's king of the Micro Four Thirds, the successor to the mighty, format-pioneering G1. While other M4/3 cameras are getting smaller -- the main appeal of this format is that it can offer the image quality of a true dSLR in a compact body -- the G2 remains bulky, still smaller than a dSLR but certainly big by mirrorless standards. The touch-based, swivel-screen interface is slick even if the body is not, and it maintains the solid performance standard we've come to expect from this pioneer of the mirrorless format.
