Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 photo samples

I had a chance to take an early G3 out for a brief whirl and was impressed with some of the improvements in the photo quality over the G2.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

I had a chance to take an early G3 with the 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens out for a brief whirl and was impressed with some of the improvements in the photo quality over the G2. The default colors looked more accurate than those of the G2, and the noise reduction and JPEG processing displayed fewer artifacts than either the G2 or the GF2. Further testing and analysis awaits a final evaluation unit, which we expect to get soon.
