@A Scotland. We don't give out ratings for hands-on previews such as this. Hopefully we'll have a full production sample in for review soon, and we'll score that in full.
Cute little camera and impressive that the kit lens is 14mm at the wide end (as opposed to Canon and Nikon's kit lenses which start at 18mm).
This is a micro-four third camera. So 14mm means 28mm in FX standards. The crop factor for Four third/Micro Four third is 2x, where as APSC (Am I correct?) format has 1.5x. Hence 18mm means 27 or 28mm. as found in Canon/Nikon/Sony etc.
Now you can pick one up for £200 it is a real bargain.
If you want the best compact experience then get the GF3X version as this comes with the X Vario PZ 14-42mm lens which is as small as the 20mm pancake! Again available for about £325, down from £550!
Images not quite as good as the GX1 but not far off.
