    I handled some GF2 mock ups today in Tokyo. (usually, they will have 3-4 cameras, plus a few empty shell bodies, when a new model is released)

    It was interesting to see the size, which is a bit more like a Panasonic LX-5 in size, than a GF1.

    I'll be interested to handle the real thing in a few weeks time....

    I think this is the most telling statement in the review.

    "As for the question of whether to buy one, I think that there are two answers. If you already own a GF1 I would suggest that there really isn't a compelling reason to upgrade, because it really isn't an upgrade; it's a sidegrade if anything. Panasonic just wasn't targeting the GF2 at you."

    This really echoes my thoughts from the time I was able to see the specifications. I find that I am in agreement with virtually everything as stated in the review.

    I think the GF2 will make a very nice second (or third) camera for many people. With the 20/1.7 and 14/2.5 it will make a useful pocket-able outfit. I will even look at it for this purpose. However I would not consider it for my primary camera.

    Interesting review and resulting images.
    Dragging the histogram....what a concept.
    Were I in the market for a camera with the best IQ in the smallest package (I always am) with interchangeable lens capability this does sound intruiging.
