Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1

Value For Money

At a penny shy of £1500, including the lens, the L1 is somewhat more expensive than its competitors. It reminds me of the Fujifilm S3 Pro, in that it offers something different for a high price. The S3 Pro is now half the price it was, if you can find one. With the similar Olympus E-330 at half the price of the L1, and 10 MP models now even lower, I worry that the Panasonic brand name alone justifies the price.
