Gx1 vs G5
Nov 12, 2012


I'm a long time reader of DPReview but first time poster. I'm interested in purchasing a compact camera to complement my D700. I'm finding that I'm taking less photos with my D700 as it is often too bulky to carry on day trips (in addition to managing two active young boys under 5!). So my thinking is that I will get something a little more compact so that I can continue to get those precious moments.

I was ready to buy the Panasonic Gx1 due to the good reviews and price point, but soon discovered the G5. The G5 is a more recent model and only very slightly more expensive than the Gx1. They seem to be comparable in terms of specs, yet I haven't found any reviews comparing the two on image quality and performance.

Which one would you chose? Or should I be looking at another option at this price point? I'm not after the top of the range, but just need something that will allow me to take good photos at the times when I can't be bothered lugging the D700 around.
