Panasonic DMC-G5KBODY 16MP SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD - Body Only ...

R. Hopkins, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: I was very pleased with the camera body. It met all of my expectations. It was virtually brand new, had all of the necessary manuals, straps, etc. with it. It is exactly what I expected.

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.

Very poor battery, even by generic battery standards

Steve W Benson, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • 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.

Exactly what I wanted

Setter Dog "Jack", Amazon

  • 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.

Best Budget Cam

  • Summary: Little sister of the GH2. Similar features sans some of the more advanced controls pros might use. That's not saying you cant get great pro shots with this. You can. Has superb built in effects and settings. I got the 20mm with it and its the perfect combo for under 1000.

Packs a lot of power in a user-friendly design! Great pictures, color/bw.

1avidcyclist, Ebay
19 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of Panasonic micro 4/3 format cameras and lenses. I'm very happy with the G5. Fine art is my area, and I am tired of carrying around the heavy film and digital cameras. The pancake lenses are especially brilliant, and for fun, I love to use the new 9mm Olympus body cap/lens on my IR-converted Panasonic G1. I bought the second G5 so that I can have it converted to infrared-only (at a shop back east that does a whole lot of that.

Works, Just doesn't hold a charge as long as OEM

Goober22 "William", Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: It works if in a pinch, but don't expect it to last as long as an OEM battery. It is significantly lighter than an original battery, which leads me to believe the reason for lesser life.
