Should I go in for feature set of Lumix G5 or the image quality on the Sony Nex
Dec 29, 2012

Hi,

I would have loved to go in for a Sony NEX camera (either F3 or 5N or 5R) but I am appalled at the fact that one camera does not feature all the features I am looking for. This has got me to consider Panasonic Lumix G5 which has all features but is low on image quality. The particular features I am looking for in decreasing order of priority

1. Fully articulating LCD for self portraits (available on F3 and 5R but not on 5N)

2. Pop built in flash (available on F3 but not on 5R or 5N)

3. Capability of remote triggering (available on 5R and 5N but not on F3)

4. Long battery (available on F3 but not on 5N or 5R)

5. Remote viewfinder using smart phones (5R but not on 5N or F3)

6. Not too expensive (while 5N and F3 are around $450 with kit lens, 5R does not seem to budge below $700)

All this has made me consider Panasonic Lumix G5 which features all the first three attributes at $600 today. Seems like a great combo. But I am unable to convince myself of going for a camera with lower image quality.

Pleaeaeaeaeaeaeaese pour in your opinions and suggestions and experience. Many many thanks in advance.

Regards,

Arun
