  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a compact SLD targeted at novice photographers. It produces good image quality, very similar to the previous generation of entry-level DSLRs, in a considerably smaller form factor. Although it has a simple interface, its feature-set is well-rounded. As an interchangeable lens camera, its versatility is assured. Panasonic offers three series of Micro Four-Thirds cameras, this one, the G-series and the GH-series.
  • Pros: Low image noise until ISO 800 in good light, Realistic image colors, Excellent automatic white-balance, Reliable metering, Fast contrast-detect autofocus, Short shutter-lag, Quick and responsive, Calibratable LCD, Good LCD visibility and viewing-angle, Optional EVF, Relatively compact, Sturdy build quality
  • Cons: Slight image softness from base ISO, Limited use ISO 6400, Below average shot-to-shot speed, Wrong Live-Histogram, Preview not, Poor flash clearance, Inefficient controls, Touchscreen required, Impossible to set video framing correctly, Video recording delay, Video drops last second, Short battery life

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 with 14mm lens review

  • Excerpt: An SLR sensor in a compact body is an appealing prospect, and the GF2’s classic rangefinder-inspired styling makes it even more so. It’s a similar size and weight to the Sony NEX-5. Both are available with a choice of wide-angle pancake lens or bulkier 3x zoom lens. They both offer a full complement of manual controls, but the GF2 brings these features to the fore with a command dial and buttons for ISO speed, white balance and focus mode.
