Summary: The Panasonic Lumix G5 a great value mirrorless system camera which makes a number of improvements over its predecessor, the G3. The new G5 inherits the mini DSLR styling of the G3 with its fully articulated screen and electronic viewfinder and adds 1080p full HD video recording, 6fps full resolution continuous shooting and a new HDR composite mode. All these improvements are made possible by a new 16 Megapixel sensor and redesigned Venus Engine processor.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 remains a more DSLR-like experience to use than most current compact system camera models. The improvements to the sensor and processing engine enable an impressive performance and show that a smaller-format sensor can compete against APS-C models. The handling of noise is extremely impressive, allowing critical shooting up to ISO 3200 and the retention of high levels of detail even at ISO 12,800.

Summary: This is a great model to choose if you're after a small-ish camera that can take different lenses. Importantly, it has the ability to capture very clear images, and it's quite user friendly overall.
Pros: Crisp and clear image quality, Quick overall performance, Lots of features to play with
Cons: Physical controls could be a little better, What you see on the screen is not always what is captured
Excerpt: Panasonic's Lumix DMC-G5 is the successor to last year's Lumix DMC-G3 . It retains many of the key features of that camera, such as the 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor, built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) and flash, and, of course, a small body. It's a camera that you wouldn't think can take different lenses — it looks more like a super-zoom camera at first glance — but its Micro Four Thirds mount allows you to pick a lens for every situation.

Summary: The excellent Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 produces consistently high-quality output and joins an ever-expanding range of lenses and companion models. It's a joy to use, but the price is high, particularly when compared to mainstream dSLRs. The score reflects this (prices below are for the body only).
Pros: Image quality; Range of available lenses; Movie performance; Firmware and build quality.
Excerpt: Placing the G5 next to its predecessor, it's immediately clear that there have been a number of changes to the overall design. Despite being only a few millimetres different, it seems Panasonic has decided to beef up the G5 by adding a deeper rubberised hand grip and more prominent rear thumb-rest that provides far more purchase than the previous model, making it look and feel more like a D-SLR.
Recensione: Panasonic G5, un modello che dovrebbe offrire di più
22 December 2012
Excerpt: Uno dei pochi aspetti sottotono della Panasonic G3 ( recensione ) ci è sembrata l'ergonomia. Dopo l'ottima G2, che riprendeva interamente il progetto della GH2 con caratteristiche meno performanti, la casa nipponica porta bandiera del Micro Quattro Terzi ha deciso di puntare tutto sulla riduzione dei volumi. Si è così ottenuta una fotocamera per molti aspetti eccellente ma con un'impugnatura un po' sacrificata e tasti non troppo comodi.
Excerpt: A Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 faz parte da nova família de câmeras de terceira geração (=sem espelho ou DSLM) da fabricante japonesa com o padrão Micro Four Thirds. É um modelo de entrada, mas que consegue produzir resultados incríveis, incluindo vídeos em alta definição de excelente qualidade. Tem seu porém: você vai precisar de outra lente mais luminosa. A G5 também marca a volta das câmeras DSLM da Panasonic ao mercado brasileiro.
