G1 Still Image Quality...

I have owned a G1 (non HD video) since it was available. I have shot 5000 plus frames with it. At ISO 400 or below, the image quality is excellent. The first generation of the camera is certainly capable of producing usable professional images. There are many reviews available on the Internet with sample images. Certainly this would not be the camera of choice for serious landscape or studio photography. However, with its compact size, and unique features, this camera has great potential for the photojournalist or similar type assignments. I'll be on the waiting list for the GH-1 and am really looking forward to the HD video capability.

I never thought I would shoot any digital SLR other than Canon. I have an extensive collection of Canon Digital SLRs and many lenses. I will keep and use these cameras for serious landscape and studio work but I have added the G1 to my arsenal and I am extremely happy with it.

Finally, lens speed in not related to sharpness. A Leica 50mm Sumicron was always as sharp or sharper than Leica's faster 50mm lenses (Sumilux and Noctilux) when stopped down to F4 or F5.6. If you needed the speed these faster lenses were great but sharper at the same F stop, I would say no. There are may other historical examples of slower lenses with excellent sharpness such as most SLR macro lenses.

By the way, I have been lurking here for years and rarely post. I really do enjoy the refreshing design and features of the G1 and the Micro 4/3s system. I hope Olympus is not far behind in releasing a Micro 4/3s camera.

yeah - that's confusing - we all know the gh1 specs but I haven't seen any hard specs out of Olympus yet - although they say they're releasing this summer

On his blog Prolost, Stu Maschwitz has written a post with a video analyzing skew from the GH1 live mos sensor, from footage originally from SlashGear.

How was it?

Well, how was it? We're dying to know here:p

I've already been selling of part of my Pentax DSLR gear to finance the GH1. Now it better be good!

well...

i used it. Did a bit of shooting, tried to steal it...but they wouldn't let me take it until they have a full production model as the lens wasn't ready. Hopefully will get that in early May...

Loved the manual control and the electronic viewfinder means you can shoot with the camera up to your eye socket which makes things so much more natural and stable.
