Excerpt: I was looking to buy either a Olympus OMDEM5 or a GX7 … but bought this with a 14-140 lens for practically the price of the lens. I had assumed I would sell it and trade "up" but after using it i changed my mind. Its high ISO performance is marginally behind these high end models but its viewfinder is BETTER than the GX7 and equal to the EM5. Its handling is IMHO better than either. It is not weatherproof and is slightly plasticky. BUT it is well built.
Excerpt: I've used the micro 4/3 cameras since Panasonic first introduced the GH1 and GF1 for their unique combination of image quality, sensor size for low light performance, and video capabilities. My current cameras include the Oly OMD-EM5, EPL1, Panasonic GX1, and now the G6. This review is focused more on the video capability of the G6, as I use it professionally for field research in this capacity.
Excerpt: I have the Lumix G1 with the 14-45mm, 45-200mm lens, but the memory cover fell off, the flash hot shoe damaged by a third party thumb rest ,with a trip to Africa coming up I decided to upgrade to the Olympus OMD-em5. When I compared it with the G6 in the shop, despite the better quality of the Olympus I didn't like its handling, the Lumix G6 felt so secure to hold. I bought the G6 with an Olympus 60mm macro lens, these two are a good combination.
Summary: I upgrading to the G6 from the G3 and I must say it has given me a new found passion for photography again. Everything about it is amazing from using your phone as a wireless trigger to using the built in star trail and time lapse settings. Love it.
Summary: The Lumix G6 is a great camera to use if your looking to save weight and clutter. Although it's a mirrorless design it's caperbilities are tremendous and can and does put normal DSLRs to shame.You won't be disappointed with the results . The rear screen is touch sensitive and has 1.44 million pixel output . The evf is also a revelation being full frame and excellent to use. All in all a great camera.l recommend it to all.
Pros: Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Perfect For Travel, Simple Controls
Summary: This camera just wants to be used, it's good for travel because it's small size. Don't let that put you off, it's as good as if not better than a dslr. The picture quality is superb with good colours and sharpness. I changed my system from dslr to mirrorless and have not looked back.It's a great systems camera with its small but perfect size of its lenses.
Pros: Good Live View Festures, Great Features, Great Live View Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Quick Focusing
Summary: First of all - it's a great camera. Slight negative, a couple of the buttons are a bit too near your thumb / palm of your hand when holding the camera and occassionally get accidentally pressed. Other tha that images are crisp, operation is essentially easy and results are terrific. Well worth the money.
