We've seen stock images of the Lumix DMC-G1, but just how small is this camera that's the first in the world to use the new Micro Four Thirds Standard? Panasonic and Olympus (which jointly developed the new imaging format) have mentioned that this new system will shrink the size of dSLR-like cameras to make them more portable.
According to its specifications sheet, the DMC-G1 measures 124mm x 83.6mm x 45.2mm (about 4.9 inches x 3.3 inches x 1.8 inches), but nothing speaks louder than images.
Flickr user Luc Saint-Elie has posted several images of the shooter itself online, and it seems like shutterbugs with larger hands may have difficulty getting a good grip on this camera. It also appears the new Micro Four Thirds lenses are significantly smaller than a regular-size can of Coke.
I won't drone on any further. Check out Luc Saint Elie's Flickr page and come back soon for CNET's review of the camera.
