As Panasonic developed the GF series they essentially dumbed it down over the generations - moving it to a position as a camera for P&S upgraders, rather than SLR users wanting something smaller - so less features and control lacking options like the hot shoe, optional EVF and mode dial.

So in theory the GF5 should have better processing and output thanks to a few generations of software and hardware tweaks, but many still would prefer the control given by the GF1, which is why it commands a higher price than the latter cameras.

Panasonic have since released the GX1 which is pretty much what everyone wanted in the GF1's successor - great control in a compact body.
