Love the camera but the LCD touch screen delaminated after 18 months careful use and Panasonic are not interested

Summary: There's a lot to love about this camera and many people have written more technically competent reviews than I could ever hope to achieve. I love the smaller m43 format and the image quality is excellent.
Needs a lot of tweaking to get images almost as sharp as my Olympus E-P1

Summary: Like all micro 4/3rd's cameras, there are a lot of settings options that need to be explored when you first start working with the device. In my case, I have been using a pair of Olympus E-P1's with the 25mm and 45mm Lumix/Leica lenses, so it was easy for me to compare images.
Summary: Besides all the good stuff everybody has said, I have encountered a problem when deleting pictures: when I choose a pic to delete, it keeps telling me "editing operation cannot proceed as information processing is ongoing" and a small bar is flashing on the left side of the screen.
Summary: I have the GX1 and 14-42X just received from Amazon as the kit. The lens serial number starts with HH1L. It definitely shows the blurry effect that is worse with the OIS turned on. Shots taken at 1/30 look MUCH better than shots taken at 1/60 to 1/200 with OIS turned on.
Summary: I purchased this camera looking for near DSLR equipment. I wanted to go light. I own or have owned, Nikons, Canons and Olympus cameras. I am not a "fanboy" of any particular brand but look for equipment that fulfills a purpose.
Summary: 3.5 stars. Tired of carrying a heavy DSLR around, I was intrigued by the promise of micro four thirds. And the Panasonic GX1 attracted me most of all: small, stylish, with great functionality and build quality. Especially when combined with the new X lenses, it seemed like the perfect tiny package.
Summary: Durability Concern. Only 4 weeks old and a small bump shocked the camera enough that it will not power up. Sadly Panasonic wont cover it as it is considered as an external event and wants half the retail price to repair it. My jaw hit the ground.
Summary: Upgraded from GF1, image quality is amazing and 20mm 1.7 the must have lens. It's just a shame the terrible touchscreen that has a mind of his own. Was about to sell the camera because of this, but fortunately there's an option to turn off the touch function. Small camera, great iq.
