A factor in choosing the GF1 over the G1 was bulk. Turns out I'm using the LVF-1 under all but low light conditions. So much for the bulk factor. With the G1 like the GF-1 a d/c model the time factor for ever owning one kicks in. Seem like a number of people use both bodies. For those users when size is not an issue is the G1 your primary camera? The reviews noted that the EVF on the G1 is one of the better units available. If the real world resolution is significantly superior to the LVF-1, I would consider the G1. Is it? Have not touched a G1, but the ergonomics seem to be what I prefer. Old school. Dislike the touchscreen trend. Like dials & control buttons/levers. No need or desire for video, SCN, iA or even P modes. Probably off the radar of the marketing people at Pany.
