Yes, grown up - but at a size and weight of a compact: that's the little (r)evolution here! Not many lenses yet, but they'll come. For now, I'll do with the kit lenses, which seem to be quite good, although there's a Leica variant of the 14-45 already (which at EUR 700 I simply cannot afford right now!), and maybe another.

It feels like when I bought my first Canon EOS back in 1988: that type of electronic autofocus camera was quite new then and they started with only two models and two lenses - lots of lenses (including from other manufacturers) came later. That was the Canon EOS 620 which I traded in for a Canon EOS 5 - which I'll now (probably) trade in for the Panasonic. Not that it'll pay for it, but it will help. :-/

EDIT: Oh, I see dpreview.com has a real hands-on review now! That wasn't there yet when I started researching it.
