Review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, a Micro Four Thirds camera that builds on the success of the GF1 camera.  The GF2 is 18% smaller and 7% lighter than the GF1.  The GF2 removed the control dial and the direct access shutter button that the GF1 had.  On the rear of the GF2, there are fewer buttons that have been replaced with a touch screen control.  Where the control dial was located on the GF1, Panasonic has added a stereo microphone.  There is also a jack where you can add an external microphone as well as a hot shoe that accepts an external flash or an electronic view finder.  The camera has a 12.1 megapixel micro four thirds sensor which is the same megapixel count as the GF1.  However, Panasonic has given the sensor a more powerful processing engine that allows it to record in the higher definition videos than the GF1.  The manufacturer claims that low light performance has been improved.  The GF2 is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket when using the 14mm pancake lens that is available as a kit lens.  A 14-40mm lens is also available.
