I'm looking for real information here -- not theory.

I sacrificed a lot to shift from Panny to Oly E-PM1 then E-PL3 in pursuit of two things -- small size and good JPEG color.

Now I'm looking at the G5 and seeing a camera with great ergonomics (vs the Oly, made by people who are pretty much unaware of the term!) and size no bigger and heavier than the E-PL3 with VF2 attached.

So it comes down to the color. is G5 color up to snuff?

I would be most grateful for real info. Many thanks in anticipation.

Cheers, geoff

I have the G3 and the G5 plus an EPM1. To me, the Panasonics have a more natural looking colour than the EPM1. I desaturated the EPM1's colour to try and make it look natural but it is still not there.

So, I have no problems with the G5's colour. But, if you are happy with Oly colour, you may want to check out a G5 first.
