Panasonic DMC-G1

Panasonic DMC-G1

Very interesting.

But I wished they excluded the EVF to reduce physical size. And the flash? They've got engineers for crying out loud, have an engineering intern figure out how to fold in the flash. And while he/she is at it, make it stand out higher and give off more light. And the LCD display is articulated, so the EVF is rather... superfluous.

And, unfortunately, that 'Leica' stamped on those lenses may mean the DMC-G1's lenses may be too pricey.

So close to an affordable interchangeable lens digital camera with a decent sized image sensor and yet so far.

Come on Cosina! Do Something!! Get some Bessa digital already!!!
