Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Lens

Lens:
"(Again I did not need this, the LCD worked fine for me)-Stock Lens not so great in Low light (To be expected, I use a manual F1.4 50 mm Canon SCC Prime to get superb pictures, or use external off camera flash with remote trigger)-Autofocus does not work well in Low Light ( As with all other cameras of this price range)-No remote shutter mechanism."
_
"Also, know that when using 3rd party lens, you aren't able to control the aperture of the lens through the camera, you'll be better off using a lens with an aperture ring."
_
"Mixed in with the fact that with the shorter focal lengths of this lens, the flash doesn't even clear the lens's size!"
_
"Pros:- LCD has great color and viewing angles- Light- Stereo video- Hotshoe- Responsive touchscreen- Snappy startup- Dedicated movie button- Automatic image rotate- Flash is mechanically released; you can tilt it up for ceiling flash shots, which is nice- Surprisingly easy to grip (not great, but better than expected for the slim body)Cons:- Menus a bit confusing- Lens is huge (this is excusable)- Thumbwheel is a bit stiff- Flash does not extend high enough to avoid 14-42mm lens; ergo, some shadow appears from the lens- Flash power is okay- Camera strap is generic and uncomfortable; plan on getting a better one- Some special color effects inhibit speed (only the really fancy ones, though)"
_
"The kit lens works well enough but you will want to buy some other ones which is the whole point of buying an EVIL camera!"
_
"Just get a good lens along with this GF2 and you are good to go! "
_
"But then again, the standard zoom lens is too slow dark to be able to really benefit from it."
_
"Even though it's manual focus, I am able to buy really fast lenses for dirt cheap."
_
"I cannot say for certain if the image stabilization in the Panasonic four-thirds lenses is compatible with GF2 (or any other Panasonic MFT camera)."

"Mixed in with the fact that with the shorter focal lengths of this lens, the flash doesn't even clear the lens's size!"
_
"Then someone recommended the Panasonic GF1, a small DSLR, but told us that the GF2 was available and that we should probably get the newer model."
_
"Bottom line - I think this camera can be considered a classic, combining beautiful results with size, weight and ease of use."
_
"-Exceptionally small size for how much features there are."
_
"It may not have some of the features of the full frame cameras, but its a 1 3rd of the size and attaches to my telescope easily without the bulk and weight of a full frame."
