The GX1 is here

Posted by Mark

I finally got my GX1 camera. I originally ordered it at the beginning of December but the camera with the specific lens I wanted started shipping end of January and Aramex just dropped it off to my office earlier today. The GX1 is a replacement for my Panasonic GF1 which was (and still is) one of the most enjoyable cameras I’ve ever used. So far the GX1 seems exactly like the GF1 except better although it’s still too early to get a first impression. I’ll be posting my view on it after using it for awhile.

I ordered the Panasonic GX1 with the 14-42mm x power lens from [Amazon]

    I am planning to buy a new camera, and I am still confused which model / brand to choose. My final list included Nikon D5100, Canon G1X, Panasonic G3, and now added the Panasonic GX1.

    What do you recommend?

    • Mark says:

      Well it really depends what you want. I was looking for something compact and from the cameras you’ve listed the two most compact are the G1X and GX1.

      Between those two I would (and did) go with the GX1. The canon doesn’t have a removable lens and secondly it’s not cheap and it’s also their first generation camera. The GX1 is a lot more developed based on feedback from their previous cameras so I’m really having a hard time finding anything to fault.
