Review summary from DPReview
The G10 is Panasonic's first entry-level Micro Four Thirds camera. Its core systems are capable and reliable, and although its menu system is a little dated, the G10 is an easy camera to find your way around. Unfortunately it is marred by a poor EVF, which is almost unusable in some shooting situations.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

My previous camera kit was Canon with the FD lenses, I will never buy new Canon kit again after they dropped support for FD lenses. I'm glad I found Micro Four Thirds which appears to becoming the standard across several makes. I can even use my FD lenses with an adaptor. It would have been nice to have had a full frame (35mm) digital camera but they are far too expensive and most haven't adaptors for FD lenses. The surprising feature of using my Canon FD lenses on this camera is that they have an equivalent focal lenth doubled and my telephoto's are really useful my 500mm reflector becomes a 35mm equivalent of 1000mm great for wildlife. The same with my other lenses my Canon 50mm f1.4 becomes 100mm f1.4 who could afford that for a 35mm camera. Canon FD lenses are among the best and I'm glad I can still use them. For those of you who haven't any Canon lenses they are cheap used.
The manual focus is good and easy although the eye level finder could be better it gets the job done. I think this camera with a suitable adaptor would be good for anyone migrating from film to digital it's not too expensive and it has lots of useful features.
The bottom line, I like it it suits the way I take pictures it's also nice to play with trying out different things.
