Summary: Experience: I've used lots of Panasonic cameras Af-100's, Gh1, ac-130, some of their handycams. I've used the nikon d3200 and d5100. And a few others I forgot the names of. Out of the box: I've bought 3 of these, one right out of the box 1 had dead pixels/ghosting of the icons on the display, something weird and it wouldn't use batteries. I sent it back got it replaced.
