Summary: I've ended up buying this camera twice, that's how much I like this camera. I switched to an Olympus PL5, which seemed to have a quicker focus and better burst mode. But I hated the feel of the Olympus, it was terrible to hold. I really like the feel of this camera, the contoured grip feels great and makes for a stable handhold. I don't use the flip out LCD to take pictures at different angles, but I like that it protects the LCD when you close it.
Summary: I purchased this camera, because it is a 16mp machine. I already own an Olympus EPL-3, and can use lenses interchangeably between the two. The images from the Panasonic G5K are marvelous. I can see a distinct difference by using the Olympus lenses on this camera. This is easy to use, although care needs to be taken not to accidentally press the controller dial with the base of the thumb. I especially like the eye level viewfinder.

Summary: Panasonic G5 camera body is all that it is suppose to be. There is not one thing wrong with these Micro- four thirds cameras. It just was not for me.I would prefer a single lens or a bridge camera body to have for me. Thank you, RandyH.
Horrible camera, horrible images, horrible focus system. Sent it back within days

Summary: Horrible camera, horrible images, horrible focus system. Sent it back within days, and picked up a Canon t3i locally and it's 5 times the camera. I had a gen 2 Olympus PEN before trying the G5 panny. The Pen2 shot great pics in comparison.
Summary: This is an awesome camera. Used it for trekking and it is absolutely ruggard. The grip is good and it does not feel heavy while hanging on your neck. A travelling m4/3 camera with great shots. Highly recommended especially for the price!
Very poor battery, even by generic battery standards

Summary: The 1600mAh rating for this battery is simply a lie. The battery doesn't last nearly as long as the Panasonic 1200mAh battery that comes with the camera. It is also noticeably lighter. This might be a 300mAh battery.
Summary: I have the Panasonic G6 and really enjoy it during trips through the National Parks,using it on scenery and large animals. However, it seems that I often have the wrong lens mounted. I primarily use the Panasonic 100-300 (600mm equiv) and find that for many shots, the 100mm is way too tight, requiring a lens change. I wanted a less expensive camera to mount another lens on, allowing me to get virtually any shot without changing lenses.
Summary: Great size - especially for small hands and when you don't want to lug around a full size camera. Great features on the camera. I especially like how the screen panel flips around and that you also can use the view finder. So many features it will take awhile to learn and remember them. A very good camera at a very good price.
Summary: Estou bastante satisfeito,belissima camara ,qualidade preço. Pratica funcional ,com uma excelente qualidade de imagem,com media dimensão,muito pratica a manusear,relativamente leve ,o que em viagem, torna-se numa excelente compamhia.
