Hello to one and all! I just read the review at Imaging Resource.com and I must say I'm disappointed at the G1 morphing into what looks like just another DSLR. I know that G2 is an improved version, but I wish that Panasonic had retained the Leica style. Would it not have been great to see a rangefinder type viewer, increased pop-up flash power and a style that looks like the Panasonic DMC-LC1? Given the very positive reviews of the G1, as well as how different it looks, it's got my vote and $$$. Also, the pancake f1.7 lens just completes the "package". Thanks, and have a great weekend! Woops! I meant the GF1 not the G1. My apologies to everyone.
