  • Summary: The kit lens sucks, but I bought it knowing I wouldn't use the lens that came with it. The biggest downside is there is no view finder or shoe mount to add an external view finder. If you can afford a slightly better Lumix with a view finder/shoe mount, then go for that one because it's hard to focus the lens from the screen on a bright day. These nuances aside, I like the pictures it produces.

Very nice!

  • Summary: Great camera! I actually got this to get used to a Panasonic and to check out some micro 4/3 lenses. I thought I would sell it once I had run some tests but I ended up really liking this camera!

Great Camera, fairly poor (kit) lens

Sven Mueller "versmuellen", Amazon

  • Summary: I love the camera but the 14-mm kit lens produces only sub-par photos. To get the most out of the camera, get yourself the 45-150-mm zoom lens, which is very good, and the 20-mm (1.7f-stop) prime lens (and, of course, others should you want them). I use the 20-mm lens all the time, especially at night, when I carry the camera through cities for night photography.

  • Summary: Guys or Gals this is a awesome camera in 2014 still just remember even with the Canon T3I you will still need Photo editing Software. No camera takes awesome photos straight of the bat.

Small Size Convenience

C. Wehner, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: I already have the smallest DSLR in the Panasonic Lumix G3, but this is even smaller. Combine it with a pancake lens or as I did with the much more reasonable priced Sigma 30mm 1:2.8 lens and it easily fits inside a jacket pocket. I have been surprised at how bright the touch control LCD screen is even in daylight which has always steered me away from a camera without a viewfinder. The camera also has some nice features such as Defocus and night Scenery mode.

Very nice camera, small yet powerful.

  • Summary: This was my (probably) 6th or 7th camera and it paved the way to get a dSLR (recently acquired). I'm not leaving it behind though. It lacks of the viewfinder, but this is one of the reasons it is so compact. On the other hand the controls are easy to follow and it even has a touchscreen LCD for easy access. Plenty of features and modes (just as a dSLR), multiple shooting modes, HD video capture and so on.

Excellent camera to learn the basics of manual photo, but great for capturing quick moments.

Kelli, Amazon

  • Summary: The Lumix is a sweet, non-intimidating DSLR. It's great for the artist to document work, capturing great details that other cameras cannot or need to be adjusted constantly to get a good shot. It's small body is very comfortable and easy to maneuver and it's collaboration of touch screen and dial are a pleasant surprise. The Lumix is a great medley of digital and manual photography.

Terribly unbalanced.

julie, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: The lens is so big on this camera and the body so small its almost impossible to hold, no where to grip. You have to manually zoom with is almost impossible to do while holding the camera and looking at the panel. The zoom was terrible and quality of images bad. I returned it the next day.
