There's a hands on at dpreview: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0903/09030316...xgh1handson.asp

While this camera seems to be a good 'hybrid' still/video camera in a small(ish) package, it seems to me that this camera is NO improvement over the G1 at all if it isn't quiet.

Any word on if it's as noisy ( as in sound, not IQ) as the G1?

Would love it if they made a proper, quiet raw shooter with a larger sensor. There has been NO upgrade or development since the SONY DSC-R1 that's about five years old!

Will stick with the LX3(small, decent IQ and HD video) and my 5D (in a sound blimp) until then.

Well, it's silent while shooting video, at least. The difference between the two cameras is that the GH1 has a new sensor-design, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's got an electronic shutter this time to make video easier.

Is the G1 noisy? What on earth is making all that noise? There's no shutter even for AF.

well they did add a number of dedicated features (video button,stereo microphone on the pop out flash,mic socket new specialised lens etc) so maybe they will fix the noisy shutter issue as well; all in all it does look very interesting..
any word on the body/hd lens price?

Isn't there still a FP shutter for taking still photos, after AF?

Not for movies though, which surely uses a rolling electronic shutter,so noise should no be a problem there.

That's my understanding.
