  • Summary: This Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 review shows a very nice interchangeable lens camera that literally places almost every feature you could want within one-touch reach -- including shooting photos by touching the LCD -- while delivering outstanding image results and response times.
  • Pros: Image quality is outstanding, Camera layout is good, important features are accessible by "one touch", Quick autofocus and good response times, LCD can rotate away from the camera, can shoot photos with touch on LCD, EVF is extremely bright and sharp
  • Cons: Will take some time to learn all of the features, LCD is a little tough to see in direct sunlight, Price seems a little high, Touch-screen LCD is easy to smudge

  • Summary: The G2 is very much the camera the G1 should have been. The addition of a decent HD movie mode, some cool touchscreen features and minor enhancements throughout turn an already good camera into a great one.
  • Pros: Reliably good image quality up to ISO 800, usable up to ISO 3200, Accurate metering and focus, Good JPEG resolution (though stick to raw for best results), Fast and responsive in use, Good ergonomics all around, excellent build quality, nice handling, Touch screen adds a couple of very useful fea...
  • Cons: Out-of-camera JPEG color not as appealing as best competitors, New kit lens not as good as predecessor, ISO 6400 verging on the unusable, High ISO default noise reduction a bit too high, Dynamic range still not as good as best APS-C competitors, User interface looking a bit dated (and possibly a ...

  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 system camera Panasonic managed to be the center of attention with the Panasonic G1. The camera was received enthusiastically worldwide, and was especially praised for its general high quality. The expectations were thus a bit higher for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2.

  • Summary: It is hard not to be impressed with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2. It takes the best features of its predecessor, the G1, and adds video capture, a touchscreen and a few tweaks to the button placement.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 review

  • Summary: The Panasonic G2 is a Micro Four Thirds camera, making it lighter and smaller than most interchangeable lens snappers. It’s not as diminutive as its stablemate the Panasonic GF2, but its chunkier shape, fully adjustable screen and electronic viewfinder make it arguably easier to handle.

8 December 2010
  • Summary: The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G2 interchangeable lens digital camera builds upon the already impressive LUMIX DMC-G1 by adding video recording, updated controls and a 3in touchscreen. It takes excellent photos in a wide range of conditions and definitely improves on its predecessor.
  • Pros: Overall excellent image quality especially at lower ISOs, great range of image modes, fast and consistently accurate autofocus, excellent electronic viewfinder, good control system and ergonomics
  • Cons: 14-42mm kit lens not as good as previous 14-45mm model, touchscreen is sometimes difficult to operate accurately, images lose clarity at high ISO settings
