' Panasonic has done a good job of mixing intermediate photography features with easy-to-use features in the Lumix G2, making it an ideal entry-level DSLR camera.
'We found that the Panasonic G2 is suitable exactly for whom it's designed for: a camera for the compact camera upgrader, who will find welcome in its user-friendly features, rather than the DSLR downgrader who might find the ISO performance a little lacking.'
'Overall, the Panasonic G2 is a big improvement on the G1, offering a refreshing new way to interact with the camera.'
'So Olympus is trying again to lure this lucrative audience to its Micro Four Thirds camp, this time with the more consumer-friendly designed and priced E-PL1.
'And in the eyes of many consumers the E-PL1 will best its more expensive bigger brother due to the fact that, for the first time, Olympus has included a built-in, pop-up flash, activated by a thumb switch situated at the top left-hand edge of the camera back. '
'the E-PL1 feels sturdy and easy to tote around from bag to beach and back again.'
'Camera has a "retro" look and design, which is appealing.'
