Excerpt: I am new to the mirrors systems, and I am still getting used to it. I noticed there is a slight lag when taking photos from what you see on the LCD to real-time display compared to a DSLR. But overall, the quality of the photos that come out of the G2 is excellent.

Summary: This is a nice camera, there are two things I which were different, that you could run it on AC, and when you are doing a video and zooming the lens, you can hear that noise when watching the video. Thank you
Excerpt: Owning a Nikon D80 DSLR. I've gotten used the fast response of the mirrored systems. I decided to get a backup camera that also did video. On a budget, I decided to purchase the Lumix G2 my first mirrorless camera.
Summary: The specs this camera offers are directly comparable to a D90. However, this camera offers the same or close to the same level of performance at roughly half the cost, with the lens included(Note: I would highly recommend watching ebay listings to get one of these at a bargain price, I paid $225...
Summary: No complaint on the camera itself but It bothers me that it came with three operating manuals and none of them are in English. Called the company and they said it was not a mistake and that the english version was on the CD.

Summary: Not in production any longer, but I'm buying up as many of these cameras from the interwebs as possible for my business. It functions as a reliable and consistent camera for MOST uses. Down side is low-light photo taking capabilities. Pluses are its flexibility from full-on Auto to Manual.
Summary: This is the third micro four-thirds camera I've purchased since switching over from Nikon DX-sensor DSLRs, and I think it's the best I've used yet. Both of my previous camera (A Lumix DMC-GF1 and an Olympus E-PL1) were finderless, like most modern point-and-shoots.
