    I bought this camera after considerable research to develop my skill and knowledge of photography.
    I have had quite a few compact digital cameras so I know the basic principles of operation, but found the manual that came with the camera incomprehensible.
    After a few attempts to grasp the basics of the G2 (and failing!), I bought a book called 'The Panasonic G2 Quintessential Guide'which is much more accessible and allows the ordinary user to develop an understanding of the camera functions and how th use them
    Having gained this understanding, I find the G2 is excellent in all respects, giving first class results in all situations that I have tried it.

    I always wondered why a DSLR is so large and heavy - as the image sensor is only two-thirds the size of a 35 mm negative, I thought they should be about the size of an old Pentax ME - the smallest full-frame 35 mm SLR.

    Well - here it is,in the form of the Lumix G2 - it does everything my Nikon DSLR does, but has about two-thirds of the weight and bulk. Even the standard 14-42 lens is as good as the Nikon equivalent, while the electronic viewfinder is even better than the optical pentaprism of my Nikon.

    The control layout is really good, and it is difficult to fault it - but what is the point of a touchscreen? Still, it does no harm, and its ability to swivel makes it a good low or high-angle viewfinder.

    I thought long and hard about whether to get another full-sized DSLR or move to the lighter and more portable micro four-thirds format. I'm glad I did as the G2 is a terrific camera. Photos quality is comparable to well known DSLRs but I find the small and light form factor encourages me to take the camera with me more often and to experiment when I wouldn't have bothered to carry a much heavier offering from Canon etc. Downsides - not the camera, but the manual which is impenetrable.

    The camera is easy to use, and should appeal to point and shoot users as well as those seeking some creative control, image quality is generally very good, but given what is availble on some entry level SLR cameras, is not exceptional. The big selling point over the G1 is the AVCDHD Lite video and the touch screen. While the HD video is good its not Full HD and will not replace your HD camcorder, it is far better than a domestic DV camcorder. As for the touch screen, its tricky getting to rely on it and I still find myself using the regular controls and menus, fortunatly Panasonic have duplicated all the functions, so you dont need to use the touch screen until you feel happy with it.

    Images are detailed and the autofocus and exposure systems are quite good, Images noise is reasonably well controlled up to 800 ISO and approaches that of similar priced SLR type cameras that compete for your money. As a stand alone camera this is all that most people will need, but it is probably not going to be as expandable as the Nikon of Canon range. Smaller and lighter than an SLR camera it is still reasonably large and would not fit in your pocket, those not looking specifically for the benefits of this breed of camera will need to really consider if this is what you want, there are so many compact and superzooms out there at lower cost that perform nearly as well in good light, and if this is going to be your only camera I would research the whole range of Panasonic Cameras. Check the weight and size of any additional lenses you are considering, and think if you would want to carry them around with you.

    I have had my camera for about a month and am very happy with it. I am a beginner and wanted to be able to have the option of learning more whilst having the ease of a point and shoot. This has fitted the bill very well and I am pleased with my results so far. I have achieved some good results with the movie mode too. I bought the idiots guide* which I am finding very useful as the manual is quite difficult to follow. With the help of the guide I am gradually getting to grips with all that the camera can do and there is a lot more for me to learn when I step up to more manual control. But the results with the automatic setting are very good so even if I never get any further than that I am pleased with my pictures.

    I was pleased with the speedy and efficient service as well. My camera arrived promptly and well-packaged.

    Very pleased with the camera and am finding new things about it all the time! It is exactly what we wanted - fully automatic for ease but with a plethora of functions should you wish to experiment. The angled touch screen is excellent and I found the viewfinder very useful (more so than the screen but that is my old fashioned way of taking photographs!). The other thing about the camera is its size, which is still compact enough to make it an easy thing to carry with you. Any smaller I would struggle to hold it any larger I know I would not want to lug it around with me.
    All in all excellent buy and fully recommended.
    Usual excellent service from Amazon full order tracking and it arrived a couple of days before it was expected.
