Bought this little beauty after reviewing non stop on the Internet for two weeks. Couldn't make up my mind between Canon g12, G2 or the Gf2. Just having sold my Nikon reflex with all the big lenses etc, wanted quality with portability. I also have Canon point and shoot and although very portable I wanted something better.
G2, great but no real benefit on GF2 except bigger and video not full HD. Canon G12 very nice but wanted the option to swap lenses, hence Gf2.
So far can't fault my choice. I like the touch screen, having used an I Pad and I Phone. Picture quality really good. Pictures of our winter garden, wonderful. Grandchildren come out perfectly. To be honest picture quality between my old Nikon and GF2 minimal, but I am not a professional, by a long way.
All I can say is camera suits my needs perfectly. What I need now is the 80mm to 200 mm lens, which I shall order shortly.
The build quality of the camera is very solid and everything is of a high quality.
Very happy with my purchase, five stars.
