Excerpt: I just bought the GF6 as my first micro 3/4 camera a few days ago, and I bought the black version with the new 14-42mm 3.5-5.6 II lens on it. One of the reasons why I select the GF6 is due to I had very good results from another Panasonic: the SZ15, it is a terrific small compact camera with 16x optical zoom. When I don’t have the space and energy to bring my full frame DSLR to a trip, I always bring the SZ15 with me recently.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix GF6 with the 14-42mm lens kit is an amazing camera to someone like myself who has been using small point and shoot cameras for years. The Lumix GF6 marks my graduation to a "real camera". This camera looks great. It is a solid piece of equipment and everything works. The pictures it takes using the iA (AUTO) setting allowed me to start taking quality photographs without getting very far into setting up the onboard protocols.
Stylish Feature Packed Camera, Nice Update From Previous GF's

Summary: The Panasonic GF6 is a great compact camera for those looking to get into the Micro 4/3 system or those upgrading from an earlier GF series camera. The camera is packed full of features and with the redesign has many new updates from earlier GF series cameras. The black and silver body with its curved top gives it a classy, stylish look. It's arrangement of buttons is user friendly.
Summary: it's great, I checked it's performance and attached some sample photos the camera preforms well in many conditions, from low light to macro shot, however for full macro images needs a special lens for that, the camera has a great weight, and it's small and very easy and relaxing to hold and to shoot with, and the flexible screen is great, however since it's small, the battery life is not that much, however it's enough for me to use it for 14h so that means I have to buy...
Summary: I originally wrote the review below for the GF5. The GF6 has everything I wanted in the GF5 and then some. The three things about the GF5 that bugged me most were the pressure-sensitive touch screen, lack of a zoom lever and not enough function buttons. Well, they did change the touch screen to capacitive and it is now so much more responsive. It's less sensitive to fingerprints since you don't have to push.
Summary: I am rating this camera 5 stars because it takes some of the best pictures. I previously owned the GF5 which was by far the best camera we owned. This camera offers great improvements including a touch capacitive screen which tilts. It also adds wifi connectivity and a mode selection wheel which is easy to access. There is also a handy dial next to the shutter button that allows you to control your zoom. I like the variety of auto adjustments the camera does.
Summary: Length:: 2:21 Mins Panasonic has today announced the Panasonic Lumix GF6, a new base model compact system camera which sees significant improvements to the outgoing GF5 it replaces. The Panasonic Lumix GF6 features a higher resolution 16MP Live MOS sensor and the new Panasonic Lumix GF6 also features a new processor to boost the image quality and reduce high ISO noise.
Summary: I bought this - stepping up from a compact point and shoot - as someone interested in photography and determined to spend more time on it in the future. One of the things that attracted me was its combination of features, ability to use different lenses and its advertised image quality all in a package much smaller than a standard DSLR.My initial impressions (2 months in) are that this is a great purchase.
Pros: Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Incredibly smart little thing, perfect for a beginning photographer

Summary: This is my first "proper" camera after owning a series of slightly smarter compacts (Canon S3 and Lumix TZ20 being the last ones). One of the primary reasons I've selected it was the size - I didn't want a full DSLR due to the size and weight. On the other hand, whilst great on outdoors holiday pictures, the compacts were continuously under-performing in low light or other more tricky conditions.
