Excerpt: I love my GX200, it has one of the nicest user interfaces and control set of any camera I have, or had. The handling and build quality is simply superb. I've had several P&S/compact cameras over the years, including the (IMO over rated) LX series from Pany and this is easily the best I've used.
Excerpt: When I bought the GX200, it was the finest compact small-sensor camera at its price. It still is except that the Canon S90 has come out since then, and in certain areas excels. The GX200 is great for snapshots except in low light.
Excerpt: The GX200 is a wonderful pocket camera, ideal for daylight travel and street photography, but also suitable for nightscapes and indoor photography with the right accessories. Pros: + Small size without compromising ergonomics. The grip is nicer than most compacts and the button layout is great.
Excerpt: Let's get the negatives out of the way first: this would not be my first choice for a low light, high ISO camera. You can read about that just about anywhere. But then - that's the ONLY negative. As for the positives, there are plenty: Build quality is excellent, with a magnesium alloy construction.
Excerpt: The GX200 is my little travel and street photography camera. It handles very well and the zoom lens is of a very useful range and very sharp with very little distortion. This camera has unique features like electronic level, external electronic viewfinder, Snap focus.
Excerpt: A distinct improvement from the GX100, with RAW/DNG use now a realistic option, as a consequence of the addition of a RAW buffer. Noise still a problem on higher ISO's and it is disappointing to see little improvement on this front from the GX100.
Excerpt: Finding myself using my wife's very cheap P&S instead of lugging my metal bodied dSLR, I realized that if I am to have my camera with me as much as I wish, it will have to be a form factor of a P&S but with the artistic control I demand in any camera.
Excerpt: I have dipped into the point-n-shoot realm many times attempting to find an alternative to lugging my DSLR around, and have never found anything that was good enough to substitute for my other cameras, until now.
Excerpt: For the fully featured compact, this camera still competes as the current compact king, all said and considered. Yes it is noisy from ISO 400 on, but with a nice and bright 2.5 aperture, and Camera Shake Correction, you are able to use much lower ISO's than typical compact cameras in lower light...
Excerpt: Overall a great camera for many who like to have a similar feature set as a DSLR. The interface is exceptionally good. I prefer taking pictures in RAW over jpeg for the additional flexibility at "fixing" my photos in post processing. The RAW files at ISO 64 are stunning.
