"The Lumix DMC-GF1 is damn near perfect in my opinion."5.0 starson by lumixx
Pros: Great picture quality.
Nice LCD screen.
Cons: Pricey-Were in a recession for heavens sake!
Hot shoe cumbersome.
Summary: This Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 is working towards what perfection in photography is defined as. It has all the new technologies , but just hasn't perfected them yet. Also the hot shoe is a design flaw. Switching between the elv and flash get's a tad frustrating at times when you only have a few seconds before you miss the next great shot. Also I feel the price need's to between between more like $500-600 range considering the economy in all. Having said this I do feel Panasonic is setting the bar in photography and will keep getting returning customers like myself.
