    How exactly is the auto-leveling or orientation rotation supposed to work on the G2, anyway? I have a MEGA O.I.S. 14-42mm kit lens - that's supposed to work with the G2 orientation correction, right? That's what I keep reading, anyway...

    Problem is, my pics are not being corrected/rotated and I can't find any specific mention in the manual, menus or in Panasonic's published specs. Only a few mentions on DPR and of course Andy Westlake's G2 review.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: Solved. It does save EXIF data for rotation, but if you just view the JPEG in say Windows Photo Viewer, it won't show up as rotated. It has to brought into a program that supports EXIF in that way, like Photoshop or Lr.
