"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 is outwardly very similar to the 18-month old DMC-G1 camera, so a lot of the comments that we made about that model's handling apply equally to the G10. Measuring 124 x 83.6 x 74mm and weighing 336g without a lens attached, the G10 is exactly the same size but 50g lighter than its predecessor, largely because the G1's rotating, free-angle LCD monitor has been replaced by a fixed screen. Despite the Micro moniker, users with average-sized hands can still operate the G10 comfortably - I found that I naturally gripped the camera with the thumb, middle and fourth finger of my right hand, whilst operating the shutter button with my fore-finger and supporting either the lens or camera body with my left hand."
The big deal with the G10 seems to be the fact that for $599, you get the camera and a 14-42mm lens - and a micro-four thirds camera that shoots 720p video. Overall, Photography Blog really liked this camera, giving it four out of five stars.
