Excerpt: Panasonic’s new mirrorless ILC , the Lumix GF5 , features the same sensor as its predecessor, the GF3, but with contrast-detect AF. Its many filters and presets, along with intelligent auto options, should make it ideal for the amateur users.
Pros: Speedy AF, Variety of creative filters and Scene modes, Great handling, Good image quality
Cons: Manual focussing notch is not placed ergonomically, Videos tend to record zooming and focussing sound, No hot-shoe
Excerpt: Compact system cameras (CSCs) are still toddlers compared to their mature SLR brethren, yet Panasonic's GF range is already starting to feel like a familiar friend. The GF5 is the fourth incarnation, but differences to last year's Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 are relatively minor.
