Panasonic have a mail in promotion to get a free copy of Photoshop Elements 9 and Premier Elements 9! makes this deal even more of a bargain as the software is worth £115!

Why compromise with cameras that don't have a viewfinder like the NEX-3, Olympus PEN etc. This one only weighs 500g with lens, about the same as the Olympus E-PL1!

Most will not need the long zooms of bridge cameras and will find the included lens covers 90% of standard home and holiday shots but giving much better quality compered to compacts and bridge cameras. HD video recording means you can leave the camcorder at home!

It gets even better! Panasonic have an offer where you can claim a free copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and Premier Elements 9 along with a £35 training voucher! The software package alone is worth £115 so this really is a bargain deal!

See here for details.

A good review here at Photography Blog and at here at Trusted Reviews.

I'm not convinced the TR review is accurate as from what I've seen of the 14-42mm it's not as good as the original 14-45mm which is to be expected for a cheaper lens whereas the TR review claims the new lens is significantly better:

I think the G10 is just cut down too much to the level that you lose many of the advantages of going with this design of camera particularly the poor EVF and non-articulating display.

I think the fujifilm HS10 is better value at £270... any thoughts?

The HS10 has a small sensor, which is why they can fit a 30x zoom in such a small package, but suffers from high noise as the ISO is increased. It will also be harder to get good broketh with the smaller sensor.

But if you need the big zoom then it seems similar to the Panasonic FZ38 so OK. But most don't need the big zoom range and will benefit from the improved IQ of the G10. Add in the software package currently available for free and you have a compelling buy.

I see the G10 at it's current price a better option than a Olympus E-P1, Sony NEX-3 or Panasonic GF1 as you don't save much in terms of size or weight compered tom the loss of viewfinder, direct controls or inbuilt flash (GF1 exception).

Superb deal if you're looking for a DSLR and photography software.

One other point the Fuji uses 4x AA batteries not a Li-Ion so if you add in the cost of a suitable Li-Ion battery and charger you are well over the price of the G10. All you get is a big zoom and extra weight (680g without batteries).

Cracking deal - I know my wife wants to upgrade her camera

Take a look at the size comparison of the G1 against the GF1 at the bottom of the page here.
With the same lens attached there is not a great deal between them! The G10 is actually a little smaller than the G1 in depth!

I would rather have the comfort and backup of the EVF and the better ergonomics of the G10 over the GF1 given all else is the same!

Lumix cameras are superb, always undecided whether to take along my FZ28 or Nikon DSLR when out and about - the picture quality is that close.

Another good review at ephotozine for those that need more encouragement!

Really? My father in law has a Pansonic TZ10 (the top of the line travel zoom camera, comparible to the FZ28/38 etc) and a Nikon DSLR and when ever he emails me a photo its always immediately apparent which camera took it, even when its a reduced size jpeg for emailing.
#14
IMHO G2 is much better value, but for people on budget G10 is sufficient.
#15
If you can afford it then the GH1 is the best value as the included 14-140mm lens is worth £680 on its own, with the camera and lens costing about £850.

I know it is back to £349 a Jessops - but 6 months 0% swings it for me!
