Summary: The G2 is a great camera, capable of producing stunning photographs under the right conditions. When light is low, the performance is poor. Having had the camera for a year, and being able to compare it's performance to the Canon 40D under identical circumstances, as well as a number of point and...
Excerpt: This camera is good, but flawed. First of all, its handling is excellent. Panasonic's designers must have spent quite a long time studying how people interact with cameras. Every button is in its place, most of them feel very different and are easy to find by touch only.
Summary: My primary purpose in purchasing this camera was to take pictures of my toddler. There were a lot of neat features to like. I loved the touch screen. The camera is really light weight for a dslr. I love the option to move the LCD 360 degrees.
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.

Excerpt: Seeing as I have now owned this camera for a couple of years, I thought it would be useful to update my review on it to see if there is anything I have missed or found out since the last review.
Pros: Cheap, Great Size, Perfect for Beginners
Cons: Not many lenses, Battery life, Low light images
Summary: I've never had anything except a 'point and shoot' camera before. Wanted a bettor one for some major events this year, but didn't want to pay a fortune. I bought this as it was top of the Which reports. I know nothing about cameras so need something that is easy to use. This isn't.
Summary: I am a novice who wants to take better pictures so I upgraded from the Panasonic TZ7 to the G2. It looks and feels lovely BUT I cannot get my head round the instruction manual to rectify picture quality problems.
Excerpt: i have recently started studying photography and decided that the panasonic g2 was a good starting point. the camera comes i several colours, red, black and blue, i choose the red. it comes with a 18mm - 42mm standard lens.
