PhotographyBlog.com just finished their in-depth review of Panasonic Lumix DMC GF2. It’s consists of six long pages , discussing several technical aspects and performances or images quality. The review also compares Panasonic GF2 to its rival : Canon G12, Nikon P7000, Olympus EP2, Samsung NX100 and Sony NEX5.
and Panasonic GF2 is Highly Recommended, got almost excellent score : 4.5 of 5
some interesting bits in the conclusions :
The GF2 is definitely not a natural successor to the GF1 that it replaces, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a great camera in its own right that’s well-suited to its new target audience.
While the polished and intuitive touchscreen interface still won’t be to everyone’s tastes, it should help the GF2 appeal to a wider audience, helping to expand the appeal of Compact System Cameras further.
It now sits just behind the flagship GH2 in terms of quality, although there are a few significant missing features, most notably the lack of an external microphone socket and the inability to change the aperture and shutter speed during recording. We also missed the remote control socket which has been inexplicably dropped from the GF2,
In terms of still image quality the GF2 uses the same sensor as its predecessor, so the performance is virtually indistinguishable. Noise performance is very similar, with a very usable range of ISO 100-800 and good results even at 1600,
the GF2 still can’t quite rival a decent DSLR camera with an APS-C sized sensor in low-light
While it’s certainly not a logical upgrade for current GF1 owners, the GF2 deserves to make a big leap forward both for Panasonic and for the Compact System Camera market as a whole.
