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: My first battery was delivered on time but the battery would not take any charge at all despite using 2 different chargers. After I gave the battery a 1 star review and explained my problem. I received a new battery from them. This battery charged up without problem.
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.

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.
Summary: My daughter had been wanting a "real" camera for quite some time but they were always beyond my budget. This flash deal caught my eye and this camera has all the features she has been dreaming of and then some - especially the turnaround viewing panel! Take great pictures and video but you do have to hold it quite still to avoid a blurry image. She's happy, so I'm happy. Here's to great pics and videos in 2014!
Fantastic product for the price. Fast, Easy, intelligent.

Summary: I replaced my G10 with this body as an upgrade. The key features that make it worth the price are: 1. The large touch screen on the back. 2. Touch screen rotates for selfies and makes difficult photo jobs very easy. 3. The high resolution internal rangefinder screen is a significant improvement and I can now do quality manual focus on hand held photos at 600mm eq. 4. It is extreamely fast! Turn it on and it is ready before you can lift the camera. 5.
Summary: I have not taken a lot of pictures with it but they are definitely much better than the ones I took using my old FZ35. I bought the 2-lens bundle at Costco for $399. The 14-42mm lens, as many have commented on various reviews, was not good. The zoom wasn't even smooth. The 45-150mm was decent but I sold both on ebay so I could get the H-FS14140K zoom. What a good combination with the G5.
