Hot on the heels of the Sony Alpha, Panasonic introduces its first DSLR.............

Pros: Fun handling - especially for the more traditional user; build quality; cracking lens; lovely image tonality; useful set of film modes
Cons: Price; still limited system at the moment; live view has limitations to its usefulness; small number of AF points

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 is/was the company's first DSLR. This camera is the result of a collaboration with Olympus, in as much as it uses the Four-Thirds standard, which Olympus launched as an open standard. Panasonic is the first company after Olympus to launch a Four-Thirds SLR. The company has also collaborated on the sensor, which is the same as that found on the E-330. Panasonic has further strengthened its ties with Leica, the kit including a Leica-designed and badged lens and more are set to appear.
