It shares much with the new Lumix DMC-G2, but its pared-down spec means that Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-G10 could be the most attractive Micro System Camera for enthusiasts on a budget

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 review


Price as reviewed:



Although I have no complaints about the G10’s AF performance with stationary and slow-moving subjects, its contrast-detection system is not ideally suited to shooting sport or fast action.

When photographing one of the Race for Life events, for example, there were a few occasions when the camera failed to focus the lens before the subject had passed me.

Walkers didn’t trouble it, but I found it was hit and miss with runners. The AF Tracking mode is useful with fairly slow-moving subjects, or for using the focus and then compose technique, but it failed to latch onto any of the runners as they headed towards me in the race.
