Summary: EXCEPTIONAL Camera --all functions are easy, results fantastic. My first DSL and so happy with the Mirrorless operation of the camera. We used the camera in the Galapagos Islands and the results were amazing. Since then a wedding, parties and family events.
Summary: I guess I'm dumb but I was searching specifically for the smallest, best camera to get for a gift. I found the dimensions of this camera and everything and thought it sounded like a winner. I didn't realize you HAD to use the big lens. It made it not work for what I bought it for. I returned it.
Amazing for videos. Don't buy if you want something mostly for photos.

Summary: Amazing camera! Why not five stars you ask? Because there is no way to see what the picture will look like before you take it unless you are in movie mode. I use manual lenses, put it in shutter priority, and let the camera decide ISO.
Great camera, but not anywhere in the realm with GH3 of 5Diii

Summary: Pros: Stills have great clarity, minimal grain or noise even at iso 800. Video is sharp and has minimal noise at iso 800. However, you can expect some in low light situation. But, it is a bearable amount of noise and expected. Focus peaking is helpful when using older manual lenses.
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.
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.
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!).
