G5 instead of OM-D 5
Mar 24, 2013

I ordered the G5 as a change from my Olympus E-510.  I really would have preferred the Olympus OM-D but the features of  the Panasonic as well as the two lens kit price of $ 543 outweighed that preference.  I considered the E-PL 5 but really wanted a viewfinder.  It really came down to bang for my buck.  It will be interesting to see how well I like the G 5 compared to my 'old' E-510.

I can see me using my 4/3 lenses, such as the 9-18 and 50 mmf2 and some others.

I would like to hear from any others who have made a similar choice.  My new camera should arrive in a week or so.

Setup and suggestions on using the G5 are much appreciated.
