jpeg, the olympus micro 4/3 are way better. Very little editing if any is needed. Panny do not have as good a jpeg engine. The panny's are not great in higher iso. But if you are not taking night time short exposure, the panny will work.

no this camera will be strictly for me to use for nature shots, vacation, beach, etc. Will use xsi for really important stuff, such as close ups of granddaughter, inside family dinners and such. Just walking around outside with that Canon xsi and the 17-85 lens gets so heavy, I usually make my husband tote it, then get it back to take pics and that gets old. He can tote the canon and I will tote the new one. Same as when we get a new car

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've had a play with a GF2 in the last few days. In spite of no dial, it seems to be quite easy and intuitive to use. And it SMALL, particularly with the 14mm pancake!!!!!

I like the way you can use the touch screen to designate a focus point that the camera will follow around, until you take the shot!!
