Nine pages but 4 are specs and conclusion. G2 did OK.
Winner: THE PANASONIC LUMIX G2
It took first place in three out of the four criteria in our shoot-out. And even though it came in second in Image Quality, a factor we give double weight in our shoot-outs, that was enough to win.
It was a close call between Sony and Samsung after that. Both have their quirks and their merits. Ultimately though, the Sony’s image quality gave it the lead over Samsung.
All three are worthy cameras and can make very nice images, but Panasonic’s thoughtful approach to the body design and controls, along with the first mover advantage of the Micro Four Thirds system, make it a clear winner this time. Much as in the Wild West, the first one on the draw usually wins the shootout.
But it doesn't make sense! The Sony has no viewfinder so for the purposes of comparison surely the GF1 and e-P1 and X1 (and Sigmas I guess) would be the only valid candidates!
Dangit if the sony had an EVF and better lenses and auto-warp-correction it'd be a contender. Blimey, that's three things!
