Over the last few months there have been several threads whinging about the lack of a DPR G5 review, yet when a post tells us about a review that is very well constructed with lots of interesting observations it creates almost no debate. Very strange.

I've read the review with great interest, as I've been contemplating G5 / GH3 for months now. Coming from a G1, the G5 will be a big step up, but I'm a bit hesitant to buy a camera with a 2 year old sensor (though tweaked)... OTOH, as a still photographer, I'm struggling to justify the price of the GH3, which is more than double the G5.

Happy to see this thread with people being actually really enthusiastic about their G5. The fact that it hardly came up here, made me a bit concerned. So I'm leaning more and more towards the G5...
