This is not earth shattering but there appears to be a shortage of 7-14mm and 45mm Panasonic lens.
I ordered them with Panasonic Direct and after I make the order they shipped the camera / 20mm but then told me the two lens were on Back Order. After going though a couple layers of people at Panasonic Direct I got a managers on the phone they were able to check all of their stock locations and they are out of both lens and do not expect more until late Sept.

My panasonic g10 kit arrived today. I took tripod mounted pics in low light for iso’s 100-6400. 800-6400 samples are also included with lightroom 3.0’s (another new toy) noise reduction, which I found impressive. The set with explanations are on my page here:

Overall I think I will like the camera. It will be the in the car always around camera. The camera is very light even compared with the gf1, but feels solid. The kit lens was a bit larger/longer then I expected, and I am not that happy with how is balances on my gf1. It fits much nicer on the g10. I think the gf1 will be pretty exclusively mated with the 20 1.7 and olympus 9-18 and when I need the 14-42 or 45-200 I will use the g10.

{?>Panasonic GF1 owners, now it is your turn to hack your camera!

{?>Panasonic GH1 video sample has been posted on vimeo:

Tester13’s Firmware Hack test, before – after comparison from Gunther Machu on Vimeo.

Shot with kitlens at f8, 1/160 shutter, iso 100, manual in creative movie mode at 5300K. For MJPEG, the settings of Pappas (see thread MJPEG 70Mbits+ 1080p settings) were used, for AVCHD the “safe” settings indicated at the end were used (from jobless, see thread AVCHD high bitrate tests, mud free footage).

I tried to keep the pans at the same pace, but thats difficult. What is incredible, the MJPEG clearly shows a better resolution (I used just the 1440x1080p settings as my card is only class6), plus the AVCHD shows no mud and increased resolution (before, on low contrast scenes islands of unsharp areas could be seen), as can be clearly seen in the comparison (e.g. look at the shadow area right to the gardenhouse).
