  • Summary: The GF2 sees Panasonic packing a lot of approachable creative control into a compact package, with one of the best-implemented touchscreens we've ever seen on a camera. It's fast and responsive with excellent raw image quality, but the JPEG output is disappointing.
  • Pros: Compact body with relatively large imaging sensor, Excellent build quality and handling, Easy-to-use interface that allows excellent level of camera control even to novices, Still one of the best-handling cameras in its class for enthusiasts, Well-implemented touch-screen controls, including touc...
  • Cons: Uninspiring JPEGs mean Raw conversion needed to get best results, Auto White Balance can be too blue, Sensor is starting to show its age (in terms of noise/dynamic range), Lack of flash exposure compensation means having to hope the camera gets it right, Using iAuto button as a Function button wo...

  • Summary: If you want the power and image quality of an interchangeable lens camera, but you don't want the bulk of a camera, you'll want to consider a digital interchangeable lens (DIL) model. And the smallest DIL on the market is Lumix DMC-GF2.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Gets a Very Reasonable Price Tag

The UberReview
18 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 attracted a bit of interest when it was announced late last year. Now it has a price tag, and what’s more that price tag is quite reasonable. $499.95 gets you the camera body, for another $100 you can a 14-42mm lens in the package – and for $699.95 you get a faster 14mm...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2

Camera Labs
1 March 2011
  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-GF2 is Panasonic's second 'pocketable' compact to employ the Micro Four Thirds standard it co-developed with Olympus. Announced in November 2010, it's the successor to the popular Lumix GF1, and like that model packs a large sensor into a small body with a removeable lens mount.
  • Pros: Well implemented touch screen controls., Compact, light and fast., 1080i AVCHD video., Hot Shoe and EVF port., Excellent handling.
  • Cons: Duplication of controls can be confusing., Requires lens-based image stabilisation., Image quality/noise performance., Disappointing sequential shooting.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF2 Review

8 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The GF1 didn't just count the SlashGear team among its admirers; in fact it was one of the most loved Micro Four Thirds models around. That leaves the LUMIX GF2 with plenty to live up to.
