Panasonic Lumix G5 review

What Digital Camera
5 August 2012
  • Summary: While it may have a bit of a fight on its hands to tempt people away from the safer option of a DSLR, the G5 has a lot to offer those willing to try something a little less traditional. The build-quality is as good as its rivals, if not better in some areas. The interface and touch screen technology make the G5 easy and quick to use, though as we've mentioned, there is still room for improvement in this area.

14 September 2012
  • Summary: Panasonic has been trying to catch up with the autofocus speeds of its Micro Four Thirds competitors so we took its latest snapper, the 16MP Lumix G5, for a spin – with a 14-42mm X Vario lens in tow. Here's how we got on...
  • Pros: Fast autofocus, Excellent manual controls, Smooth video

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 DSLM Review

ePHOTOzine
18 July 2012
  • Excerpt: and is tested with the compact Lumix G Vario X 14-42mm power zoom lens. Panasonic say that their cameras shouldn't be called mirrorless or compact system cameras (CSCs), but should instead be called Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) cameras. Whether this will take off or not is another matter, but they are keen to point out that they believe this a match for Digital SLRs.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, EVF with eye-detection sensor, Electronic shutter for silent operation, 6fps continuous shooting, Improved handling and controls, Improved menu system, Improved battery life, New zoom lever / exposure control, Electronic level
  • Cons: Compact 14-42mm Vario X lens not the strongest performer, Panoramic mode would be nice, Standard shutter quite loud

Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 (Systemkamera)

CHIP Online
5 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Panasonic hat mit der G5 eine gute Systemkamera besser gemacht. Die Fotos der G5 rauschen weniger stark als bei der G3 und hinterlassen einen insgesamt sehr guten Eindruck. Die Ausstattung bietet alle wesentlichen Elemente für bequemes Fotografieren mit der Automatik oder für manuelle Einstellungen. Full-HD-Video macht Spaß, auch wenn manche manuelle Funktionenen fehlen. An der Geschwindigkeit gibt es nichts auszusetzten.
  • Pros: Verbessertes Gehäusedesign, Schwenkbares, scharfes Touchscreen-Display, Wenig Bildrauschen
  • Cons: Keine manuelle Blendenvorwahl im Videomodus, Schwacher Blitz
