Doesn't seem that way to me... G2 looks like G1 with addition of 720P, 6400 top ISO, and touch screen (big woop that).true or hoax, it seems they've decided to strip down G1 and GH1 models
Have you actually used one? I did a couple of years ago, when I had a Panasonic FX-500 with a 3" touchscreen (it was Panny's first touch screen on a camera). It was actually better than I thought it was going to be. But it does leave fingerprints.I'm underwhelmed as well. Touch screen just doesn't do anything for me. Just more grease spots on the LCD screen.
Although I noted on the description page (before Pana pulled it) that the supplied accessories include a stylus. So I guess you don't have to touch it. (Although I'll bet those stylii will be an early nominee for Most Frequently Lost Photo Accessory of 2010...)I'm underwhelmed as well. Touch screen just doesn't do anything for me. Just more grease spots on the LCD screen.
