Panasonic Lumix G2

It's not quite as svelte as its GF1 cousin, but as the second-generation of the original Micro Four Thirds camera, the Panasonic Lumix G2 ($TBA) offers one of the most complete packages available in the format. Its 12.1 megapixel sensor, 720p video recording, and new Venus Engine HD II image processor are all nice, but the big draw is its 3-inch LCD touchscreen that can rotate 180º and tilt 270º up-and-down, letting you take advantage of its slick tap-to-focus feature from nearly any angle. We wish they wouldn't bundle the thing with the 14-42mm lens, though — cameras this small beg for a proper pancake prime.
