Summary: The lens is so big on this camera and the body so small its almost impossible to hold, no where to grip. You have to manually zoom with is almost impossible to do while holding the camera and looking at the panel. The zoom was terrible and quality of images bad. I returned it the next day.
Summary: The Panasonic GF series blends great features in a (very, for an interchangeable lens camera) compact body, an almost perfect solution for a "travel" camera. While not offering advanced features such as an external hotshoe for add-on flash devices, the touchscreen interface was surprisingly capable with many personalization and creative choices.
Summary: I received this camera and was extremely dissatisfied. I have a new baby and was excited to get a nice camera. No matter where I used this camera or on who, it took blurry pictures. We sent it back to Panasonic and they did nothing about it and even sent back to us the same broken camera. We cannot take quality, clear pictures of anything or anyone. We will not recommend this camera to anyone and especially will not purchase anything with the brand Panasonic.
Summary: I called and the operator transfer to sale support department, then it hangs up by itself. The only time I reach the department and the representative told me that their department doesnt support sales prior to 11/11/2011 then system auto hang up. Btw, their camera sucks too SD card fail to read after 3 weeks. I tried 3 different SD card 2 from AmazonBasic and 1 from Sandisk..none work. Stay away from Panasonic forever.
Summary: First off, I want to say that I own a GF3 and I love it. I ordered this kit to get the new 14-42 X collapsible zoom lens, and was unfortunately extremely disappointed. At 42mm the lens is hopelessly blurry when the shutter speed is set between 1/80th and 1/250th, especially when focused near infinity. The pictures are extremely soft, and in high contrast areas you can see a distinct double image.
Summary: This collapsible zoom lens is a great idea, but the image quality was very disappointing. I have a DSLR, and I love the image qualities, but it's too bulky to travel with. I bought this camera with a big hope that I can take it to anywhere and take great pictures. Compact, yes, but... all indoor pictures came out blurry. I took a lot of pictures of my dogs, and even with the sports mode, they were all super blurry.
Summary: Got the GF3 + 14-42X lens just so I could get the lens (before the lens only was in stock). Initial testing was good, but some images appeared very soft when they shouldn't be. After digging through some forums and reading up a lot, I found this lens has a vibration issue that causes a "double image". Some people attributed it to the OIS (stabilization) but that is not the case. I did some test photos with the shutter speed between 1/60th and 1/200th second.
