Decent batteries, Good price. Hold a decent charge but will die out fast without notice as Battery indicator is not accurate.

  • Summary: OK batteries, Good price... Both batteries that came worked on my G7 and G6 M43 cameras. They seem to hold about 1h30 - 1h50min of continuous video recording in MF mode, which is a little less than OEM DMW-BLC12 Panasonic batteries. So they definitely are not 1600 mAh in terms of charge hold.

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased a new DMC-G5 from a private party. I did check actuation's prior to purchasing and it was indeed new. I opted for the G5 over the G6 because I have absolutely no need for wireless. Have you ever tried to send 100 pics to a laptop via wireless? It takes forever!.

  • Summary: Very nice camera. Took a while for me to learn all the feature. Lenses may cost as much as this camera which is the reason I am taking a star off. Pix quality is superb.

  • Summary: As advertised...works fine (I own another one). Dealer did everything as promised and added an extra battery as there was a alight mar on the camera he had not noticed. Still wish Panasonic would design program to not download repeatedly content already downloaded...

Long-Term Use of Lumix DMC-G5

  • Summary: I have had and used the Lumix DMC-G5 now for just under a year. I shoot RAW, and then "develop" them with SilkyPix, usually with some color temp. changes, but little else. I save the RAW image as a TIFF.

Good value

  • Summary: As long as these cameras are still available for sale at a really low price, they are a pretty good deal. The major downside of this camera is that it feels really cheap, and that goes double for the kit lens that comes with it. (Panasonic introduced a new kit lens for the G6 model.

  • Excerpt: I bought my refurbished G5 about a month ago having considered a compact camera (Fuji x20, Sony RX100ii) as a carry about camera. My main camera is the Nikon D7100. Having used this camera every day I'm finding it a wonderful little mirrorless camera.

To Grip, Or Not To Grip, That Is The Question

Brian Woodbury "TheStonerGuy", Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: For the brief time I've owned this, I like it quite a bit. I was really hot for the retro look of the Olympus OM-D5, but after reading several online reviews, especially those that compared the bodies, I was convinced that I'd have a better grip on the camera with the G5.

Great camera but average kit lens

  • Summary: This is a great camera. This is my first M4/3 camera after using Canon crop sensor DSLR for long time. As mentioned in many other reviews, this is a feature rich camera, which are also available in DSLR but not to be expected in entry level DSLR camera.
