The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is one of two Micro Four Thirds DSLRs (G10, G2) released in March 2010. It replaces the G1 and is touted as the first-ever interchangeable lens camera with a movable (rotate/tilt) LCD display that supports touch-control. A user need only touch the subject on the touch display and the unit will automatically auto focus (AF). Plus the touch functionality lets users snap a photo, select a thumbnail, and enlarge a subject by merely touching the screen. Additional features include 720p video capture in the AVCHD Lite format, a 12.1MP Live MOS sensor, and Intelligent Auto (IA) for beginners. Like the G10, the G2 comes with a LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. lens.
