Panasonic Lumix GX1 hands-on review
Panasonic Lumix GX1 – versus Lumix GF3
The Lumix GX1 positively embarrasses the GF3, which we're – perhaps unfairly – comparing it to. Panasonic say that the GF series is going in two directions with the GX1 as the high performance follow-up to the GF1 – and it shows.
The range of lenses, like this new X Power Zoom lens (£730 with the camera), feels more at home on the sturdy 413g aluminium GX1 than the plastic-bodied 319g GF3. Additional touches like the GX1's metal buttons and anodised finish help to justify the £500 (body only) price tag.
