All 22 journalists at the event were given the two new flagship Lumix G cameras to test. The Lumix DMC-G3 comes with 16.0-megapixel sensor, a 3.0-inch free-angle LCD touchscreen with 100% field of view, a 1,440,000-dot equivalent LVF (Live View Finder) and up to ISO6400 capabilities. The camera also comes with 1-area AF in Face Detection, Multi-area AF with 23 AF areas and the ability to record high-resolution full-HD videos 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL) in AVCHD. The set that we were given came with a Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. kit lens.

The other flagship product that we got our hands on was the DMC-GF3, a compact  camera that comes with a 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor, a brand new improved Venus Engine VII HD, 3.0-inch LCD touchscreen and up to ISO6400 capabilities. Like the G3, the camera comes with 1-area AF in Face Detection, Multi-area AF with 23 AF areas and ability to record high-resolution full-HD videos 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL) in AVCHD. The set came with a Lumix G 14mm F2.5 ASPH. pancake kit lens.

Last but not least, Panasonic also gave us the liberty to try on their new LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm, F1.4 Lumix Micro G System lens (35mm camera equivalent: 50mm) on top of the two kit lenses. Do note that we were using all lenses interchangeably throughout the shooting trip.
