Five more reasons to get the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1
The five Zuiko Digital lenses (listed below), which support the Four Thirds standard, can be mounted on cameras that support the new micro Four Thirds standard (such as the G1) via an adapter. Considering that much of the appeal of the micro Four Thirds standard (and thus the G1) is the ability to support interchangeable lenses on cameras that are more compact than dSLRs, I'm guessing that the 25mm (50mm equivalent) pancake lens that was announced with Olympus' relatively compact dSLR, the E-420, will be one of the most appealing.

50mm equivalent (ED 25mm Four Thirds) f/2.8 lens 28-84mm equivalent (ED 14-42mm Four Thirds) f/3.5-5.6 lens 80-300mm equivalent (ED 40-150mm Four Thirds) f/4.0-5.6 lens 70-200mm equivalent (ED 35-100mm Four Thirds) f/2.0 lens 70mm equivalent Macro (35mm Four Thirds) f/3.5 lens
