Actually it is very different than G3: video works just fine without jello effect, AF is really fast, Dynamic range is good without over blowing highlights. Finally track AF is great. It is a camera which has no obvious downsides like GH3 too expensive and too big, or OMD poor video and crazy ergonomics menu implementation. I wish it had 5 a axis stabilization from Olympus.

Style wins over substance with many consumers, and Panasonic needs to wake up to this.  We can gnash our teeth over this reality 'til the cows come home, but it's not going to change it.

How the same company that introduced the very attractive and purposeful appearing GF-1 and it's successor, the GX-1, can produce such bland mini-DSLR's as the G5 and GH3 is beyond me.

The consumer wins by this approach, watching Panasonic prices drop precipitously only months after their camera's release.  The G5 has to be THE bargain of digital photography these days.
