    Only found this today and don't know if it is common knowledge - could not google anything on it.
    Open a G2 RAW image in CaptureOne Pro7 and try the crop tool. You immediately have extra pixels around the edge of your original, untouched image.
    If you extend your image out, instead of 3000 x 4000 px, you have 3114 x 4292! 10% extra image is available if you want it.
    Is this the case with other Lumix images? Is this old news?

    This is quite common with all RAW converters, each one will display a different actual size. I've noted the same in the past with Olympus cameras. There's nothing really to worry about. ;)
