Wow

The3dman, Amazon

  • Summary: I am impressed with this camera. I wasn't sure about the mirrorless when I picked this up, but I can't put it down now. Mirrorless is awesome and the features on this camera are great.

Most Underrated 4/3rds Body!

Gene "ginjin3", Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: I've owned the GF1 and GX1 version. I've also used both the GF2 and GF3 model. My personal favorite is the GF1, but the ISO capabilities just doesn't cut it anymore. Now the GF5 is my main camera. It's small, inconspicuous and I believe is one of the most underrated Micro 4/3rds body. Pros: - Extremely easy to get the perfect exposure. - Coupled with the 20mm f1.7 and the 25mm f1.4, produces great photos even for people without photography experience. - Light and small.

Wow! What a camera!

David Hume, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: Outstanding and extremely compact camera which takes micro four thirds interchangeable lenses. Probably some of the most sophisticated software in photography today. Extremely compact, and very versatile. I gave my Canon Rebel series camera along with 5 lenses to my son, and have replaced it with this camera. Wonderful ability to customize macros for favorite functions, and includes numerous optimized settings for specific subjects, such as baby pictures.

Great camera to take pictures, not so much to record

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: Very nice shots, excelent color, handy and fast. Cont: blur effect when filming (adjusting focus). I like take pictures, so the record issue is not important for me.

Nice camera

  • Summary: A small DSLR camera that is easy to operate, carry and takes great pictures. Thinking of buying a telephoto lens to see how it perform on the G6.

Exceeds Expectations

Will VONDAUSTER, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: Though the majority of the videos I produce are comprised of clips a few seconds to a few minutes in length, there are occasional events that require uninterrupted recording in excess of an hour. All of my other CSC cameras, regardless of how capable in other video respects (Sony RC10, A7, A6000), are artificially limited to 29 minutes clip length. Very annoying!

A good backup body

ghmcs, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the G6 as a backup camera for the GH3 I own. I considered the GX7, but (at the time) it was considerably more expensive than the G6 and I do prefer the ergonomics of the G6 body style. For me, a deciding feature of G6 is the ability to reprogram the power zoom toogle to control exposure compensation. That gives you the equivalent of a camera with 2 control dials.

Pretty good, but not great. Supplemented.

KTS, Amazon

  • Summary: First, let me say that I like this camera and the lenses I have - the kit lens and a 45-200 zoom. It weighs half my Canon DSLR and less than the Olympus. I suppose that is because of all the plastic. Picture quality is excellent, in my opinion equal to the APS-C camera I have. The camera is very intuitive to use. Focus is fast as are startup and there is very little shutter lag. The stop action animation function is a hoot. High ISO quality is very good.

Very Nice Camera for both Stills and Video

Raymond R. Jackson, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: This was my first Micro 4/3 camera system and I am loving it so far. The best part of these camera is the small size both of the camera itself and the lenses. I did buy an adapter so I can use all of my Canon lenses as well but you cannot adjust aperture on the lens so I have tended to gravitate more toward using the smaller micro 4/3 lenses. The quality of the images coming out of the camera is very good both for stills and video work.

User Review

gohunter, DP Review
16 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this from QVC when they had a deal on it with the 14-42mm lens. I thought I could try it and send it back if I wasn't impressed. Well, the performance just blew me away for a camera this size! It easily out performs the Olympus E-P2 that I had (notice HAD!). The IQ is great for a small capable camera to take on holidays when you want to have a decent camera, but don't want to be roaming around with a huge weight over your shoulders.
