DCRP Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1
4 Star Review  DCResource - Oct 31, 2008

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 is the smallest interchangeable lens camera in the world. It may be the first of a totally new design of cameras (Micro FourThirds), but you'd never know it. Panasonic has done a superb job with the G1 in nearly all respects. It produces very good quality photos, offers an unmatched live view shooting experience, and has a nice collection of both automatic and manual controls. The G1's biggest problems are its price, and the fact that it's not that much smaller than, say, the Olympus E-420. Still, if you're willing to spend the $800 for it, you won't be disappointed: the DMC-G1 is the first camera to truly offer a "point-and-shoot experience" on an interchangeable lens camera.

Panasonic G1 Review
4.5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Nov 13, 2008

We've completed our full review of the Panasonic DMC-G1 Micro Four Thirds camera, and we're happy to say that our early impressions were borne out by our subsequent tests of the production model. Our early impressions of the Panasonic G1 were quite positive, and subsequent in-depth testing of a full production sample confirmed that it's an excellent little camera. While it can't quite compete at high ISO shooting with the best DSLRs with APS-C size sensors, the overall image quality of the Panasonic G1 was really quite good. We were particularly impressed with the performance of its 14-45mm kit lens; it's one of the best-testing kit lenses we've seen to date. (We suspect Panasonic is using post-processing in the camera to correct for chromatic aberration and distortion, but the results are what they are: Optical quality is excellent. We'll look at results in the 14-45mm's RAW files once we get a third-party RAW converter that can open them and that we're sure aren't correcting for the distortion.) The Panasonic G1 is also one camera that feels faster than it tested: Our shutter lag tests came out in the vicinity of 0.4 second, just a tad slower than competing DSLRs, but the camera felt very responsive in our hands, we never had the feeling that we were missing shots due to shutter lag. All in all, this is a really excellent little camera, a very viable alternative for people looking for a smaller yet still capable alternative to carrying an SLR.

Panasonic Lumix G1 Digital Camera Review
5 Star Review  Digitalcamerainfo.com - Sep 4, 2008

Panasonic is first out of the gate with a product based on the Micro Four Thirds format, the intriguing Lumix G1. This 12-megapixel camera just started shipping, priced at $800 with a 14-45mm lens (equivalent to 28-90mm on a 35mm camera). It became clear a few months ago, when we shot with a pre-production G1 at the Photokina trade show, that Panasonic had indeed cleared the most important hurdle to making Micro Four Thirds work: the auto focus system is plenty fast enough for most shooting situations. Now that we've had the chance to work with a final production model, and put it through our battery of lab tests, we have to say there's a lot to like here. There are also several quirks and quibbles, of course, as you might expect from the first crack at a distinctly different camera design. And we're still not sure precisely where the audience lies for this camera, particularly at the price. But we'll consider the marketing ramifications when we get to the conclusion. First, let's examine the G1 piece by piece and see what you're getting for your $800.

Camera Labs – Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 review
4 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Mar 1, 2009

As the debut model of a brand new standard, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 is a rare, exciting and brave camera – and one which fortunately succeeds in many of its goals. The 100% Live View system with flexible screen and detailed viewfinder are a joy to compose with, the controls and handling quick and easy, while the low size and weight ensure it never becomes a burden. And while the choice of body colours and Intelligent Auto mode suggest beginners as a target market, enthusiasts are also well-catered for with features like seven-frame bracketing which are not normally offered until mid-range or semi-pro DSLRs. But while all is well with the kit lenses, there’s annoying restrictions with others. In our full review at Cameralabs we’ve detailed the pros and cons behind this first Micro Four Thirds model while comparing its image quality against rival DSLRs.

4.5 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Nov 25, 2008

Is it a compact camera? Is it a DSLR? No, its the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 "digital interchangeable lens camera". Panasonic have quickly brought to market the World's first Micro Four Thirds camera, which aims to marry the Live View experience of a point-and-shoot compact with the image quality and format of a DSLR, all in a compact package that sits somewhere between the two. Mark Goldstein finds out if the Panasonic G1 is the break-through camera that Panasonic are hoping for...

3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Nov 14, 2008

THE GOOD: Interchangeable lenses; fast performance; excellent photo quality; flip-and-twist LCD. THE BAD: Accident-prone jog dial; some restrictive feature implementations; no movie capture. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 is a camera that people will either love for its speed, photo quality, and interchangeable-lens flexibility or hate for its large-ish size, electronic viewfinder, and occasionally frustrating design.
