At the same time as Panasonic announced its Lumix DMC-G2, the company also announced the 12.1-million-pixel Lumix DMC-G10. Of the two cameras, the G10 is the more affordable option, lacking as it does the articulated touchscreen and featuring a lower-resolution EVF. Priced at £499.99, including 14-42mm kit lens, the G10 is around £120 cheaper than the G2 and kit lens, making it better for those on a tighter budget. However, I would spend the extra money on the better EVF.

The other alternative is the Samsung NX10. This received a very good score of 86% when it was reviewed. Featuring a larger 14.6-million-pixel, APS-C-sized sensor, the NX10 is capable of resolving a large amount of detail, but it seems to have a slower AF system than the G2.
