    Its not released yet....... i hear that the GF2 will be on sale starting early 2011

    I have no idea what the price is too....as this is a test unit I was asked to play around with and do a write up on.

    I saw some sellers on ebay with good ratings (from HK selling) selling the GF2 with 14 2.5 kit at about $1000 sgd converted, shipping included. seems to be a good deal!

    Thanks for the real world review. Will there be an EVF for it?

    yes there is an Electronic Viewfinder for this..... if u look at the Pg1 first few images of the back of the cam..... there is a little slot below the hotshoe where the viewfinder plugs in electronically while at the same time slotting into the hotshoe

    will try to post a pic of the evf later tonight ...... cute little thing

    The GF2 next to the LX5 is astonishingly similarly-sized (of course with a kit zoom attached, the LX5 pulls ahead.... but with a 20/1.7 prime on the GF2, its a mighty small unit)

    GF2 above .... LX5 below.... thats ALOT of additional firepower for something only slightly larger than the LX5


    ok here is what the EVF looks like...

    It looks like Panasonic really stepped up and improved their color rendition. Looks like I might seriously consider them as a replacement for my GF1 next year.

    nice review! thanks for the detailed writeup. but for an existing GF1 user, do you think it is a justifiable upgrade?

    am trying to decide between this and the G2.

    I was actually looking for a newly improved EVF2 that is backward compatible with GF1 but sadly, i don't think that will be the case...

    I just got my GF2.

    In a nutshell, it’s sublime. I thought the GF1 was a good compromise between size and Image quality, but the GF2 is a new beast altogether. It’s about the same size as my girlfriend’s Samsung EX1, but thicker because of the 14mm.

    Touchscreen controls.
    It does take some getting used too. My first few tries using it was rather confusing because I din know where all the stuff like changing AF points were. But once you get used to it some of the touchscreen implementation is pretty useful actually. For example changing auto focus points is well implemented. If you’ve used an iPhone with the “tap to focus” function, well the GF2 is ALMOST like that. And I can tell you that is mighty useful.

    The screen is a pressure screen though, not a capacitive screen like iPhones. You have to put a little pressure for it to detect input.

    Also, if it interests you, the popup flash can be ‘bounced’ but elevating it with your finger - a la E-PL1 style.


    Image Quality -
    I’m still trying to get the RAW files processed now, but my initial impressions are that the 14mm is not quite as sharp as the superb 20mm. It’s still a great lens though, veryvery light and fits the compact form factor of the GF2 perfectly.

    Another thing I notice was that the AWB is much improved over the GF1. I don’t have my GF1 already, but previously difficult scenes were handled very well by the GF2 where the GF1 needed manual correction.

    I also noted that the color rendition is a tad more saturated than the paler output of the GF1.

    Will post some pics once I find a way to process my Raw files.

    nice summary, if you could tell us how the colors of the GF2 compares to users used to the canon slr colors for portraits that wld be great one thing i din really like out my previous panasonics (LX1, 2, 3, GF1) was that the colors were too much on the cool side for people.

    Here are some images taken with the GF2 + 14mm f2.5 lens. Shot in Raw, processed with default ACR settings, no additional editing, WB or color corrections.







    Good point Ricleo, i’ll see if I can shoot a comparison between the GF2 and my Canon 7D both with a similar focal length.

    Having some fun hecking the camera , have to live with manual focusing and without stabilizer, certainly not ideal for low light and sporty subjects.

    Shot with a tripod.
