Engadget Summary

Panasonic's latest interchangeable-lens compact camera has some very useful features, including a swiveling touchscreen LCD display, a wide range of shooting modes including a good HDR mode, and, of course, access to the full range of Micro Four-Thirds lenses. It's a good choice if you're looking to upgrade from a point-and-shoot, or want to trade in an older Micro Four Thirds model. However, you should also check out gdgt Must-have Sony α NEX-5N and the new NEX-5R if you're on the fence about which compact system to choose.
