Panasonic G5 + 12-35mm compared to Canikon FF with pro zoom?
Jan 12, 2013

Hi, I'm tired of lugging the big Nikon gear but like the DSLR ergonomics. I did a search and the best compromise seems to be the Pana G5 + 12-35mm and maybe the 35-100mm or Oly 75mm later as the telephoto lens. I thik also that keeping my D600 with my 50mm 1.8g and 85mm 1.4D will suffice for my DOF control.

My question, do some of you have that m4/3 combo that replaced their FF gear? how is the ergonomics, weight and IQ compared? G5 + 12-35mm is about 2000$, so before making a decision, I would appreciate your opinions.  My other choice is a Nikon D5100 with kitlens for 1/4 that price (It's about 500$ in Canada now) with similar ergonomics and IQ, or maybe not?

So that's why I'm asking how good is the G5 + 12-35. Thank you!
