The Lumix G10 got pricing and a vague date
yesterday, and now the first full review has finally graced the interwebs. Photography Blog
put this $599, 12 megapixel Micro Four Thirds camera (and its 14 - 42mm kit lens) through a full suite of tests and came away generally impressed. The addition of 720p video recording makes this model an easy choice over the older G1
, despite the subtraction of a few features and the tilting LCD. But, the upcoming $800 G2
offers all those features plus 720p video recording as well, making it perhaps a better choice for more serious shooters with deeper pockets. Still, the G10 looks to be a great option for those wanting affordable DSLR power and HD video recording in a (reasonably) svelte package.
