The LUMIX G2 is the world's first system camera with touch-control shooting. Just touch the LCD to indicate the subject, and the LUMIX G2 focuses on it instantly. Choose from four AF modes (listed below) to match the conditions. You can also operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch, for a completely new way to shoot.
Panasonic DMC-G2K (Black) 12.1MP
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 Black 12.1MP 3.0" 460K Touch LCD Digital SLR Camera with 14-42mm Lens
Pros: Excellent turnaround, as usual, from Newegg. Received my Panasonic DMC-G2K, via UPS, in one day! From the online reviews, this is supposed to be a great camera.
Cons: The camera, that I received from Newegg, was manufactured in CHINA. Compared to a colleagues "made-in Japan" DMC-G2K (purchased through Panasonic Direct), the made-in-China G2K (outwardly) appears somewhat cheapened. Instead of paying a hefty restocking fee, I have decided to sell my Chinese-made G2K to another colleague ... at a slight loss.
Other Thoughts: I purchased a Panasonic Lumix (point & shoot) DMC-TS2S and DMC-ZS7K, from Newegg, in early July of this year. Both cameras were made / manufactured in Japan and are, at present, performing flawlessly. From what I now understand; Panasonic does manufacture "some" items in China ... in order to meet Global Demand. Panasonic states that their China-made items are manufactured to the same standards as those made-in-Japan. Not so!!
