Interesting review of the Canon GX 1 vs the Panasonic GX 1 and a great comparison to the Sony R1 (one of my all time digital faves).
I went and looked for a "walk around camera" and looked at the GX 1 from both Pana and Canon but then I noticed the Panasonic G3 which nobody is pushing out there. The SAME sensor as the Pana GX1 only with a very good Electric Viewfinder, and here's the catch it's $300 less than the others. The Pana GX1 with NO viewfinder is $800, the G3 is now selling for around $500. Put your M lens's, Pannnies, Olympus or legacy lenses and you're set.
Just wanted to put that out there. I have a G3 as tempted as I am to jump into the new Fuji system, for $500 this is a GREAT little camera,
and should have been mentioned when side by siding the new Canon vs the Panasonic Gx1. If you like I can send images.
