Tina R., Amazon
28 August 2014
  • 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.

Anonymous, Amazon

  • Summary: It was described as 'very good' condition, but due to visible wear of the screen, a scratch on the bottom side and a piece of the label missing near the opening for the tripod I would say that it is in merely 'good' condition.

out of date sensor

J. Roos, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: This was a good camera when it was released but if you are currently (2014) on the market for an entry into micro 4/3 don't even think about getting a 12mp camera. The most recent sensors are far superior in dynamic range, color rendition, and high oak performance. I would also recommend Olympus over Panasonic for the bodies. Look at the epm2 (or the pricier epm5) if you are looking at entry level but do yourself a favor and go right up to an OMD.

Great Camera, fairly poor (kit) lens

Sven Mueller "versmuellen", Amazon
19 February 2014
  • 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.

Lightweight upgrade for a point and shoot

D.H. Wayne, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: While I am still getting used to the touch screen and lack of a viewfinder I am comfortable that this was the right choice to upgrade from my point and shoot. With the flat pancake lense it is small enough to fit in a cargo pocket of hiking shorts. The camera had good balance and is very light. The price was right you can find a good number of accessories on line.

Makes me feel like a pro :)

Sherezz Grant, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a very nice camera. I'm very satisfied. I finally feel like I have the power of a DSLR in my hands except that it's much more compact and more like a typical point and shoot. I haven't yet fiddled with the features in the camera as yet, but I've gotten pretty great results so far with the camera in automatic. I wish I knew more about the pancake lens before I bought it; I wanted it badly because it was more compact than the 14-42 mm lens.

Nice, Compact Camera

MarkUm, Amazon
29 April 2013
  • Summary: The GF3 is a nice, semi-pocketable camera. It is really compact, and I think the build quality is pretty nice. It feels pretty solid in my hands. The grip is pretty decent for such a small camera. It focuses reasonably quick, and the pop-up flash is nice to have. The screen is not great. It seems to refresh rather slowly and there is some ghosting. It is not a big deal considering the price and image quality.

Better than expected but not as good as the Olympus Pl2

DonewithNAS "The Merry World of Books", Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: My kids have olympus pl2s. I bought this so we could share lenses and yet not fork over the extra hundred dollars. It is a nice camera but the olympus is better. I do like the touch screen and the body size but the lense is much larger than the olympus. It also does not recognize all the lenses that the olympus does but given my needs it is satisfactory.

I love my GF3

phil, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Compared to SLR camera, I prefer micro 4/3 camera due to its small size, easy to carry etc, and Panasonic GF series are the only option I've ever considered. So far so good, except its compatible lenses are extremely expensive: the one I want is 42-200 mm lens, which is around $200 --- I can almost buy a new GF3. And unfortunately, only 14-42 mm lens is obviously not sufficient for my use.
