Confirms my observations on the jacked-up high ISO performance. The new processor went a bit beyond the capability of the sensor I think. The high ISO images looked over-processed to me. I'd still pick the G1 if I had a choice between the two, especially given the price difference.

hmm I was looking for a decent comparison between the new panny kit lens and the Oly one. I will be selling my E-PL1, so perhaps I will swap lenses before I do. :)

After a lot of reading and consideration, I did just that and got it for $500 shipped! The savings paid for a Panasonic 45-200mm lens.

Interesting review. From what I understand, the images are not that much better than my G1 can do.

Still the GH2 may have some nice new features and the upcoming FZ45 might be interesting.

I've got a second G1 body coming, less than 1 month old, 1 shooting session only, £195, no regrets having subsequently seen the review, and as the review concludes if you have no need for the video capability then the remaining supply of G1's represents good value.
