G5 or XS-1
May 1, 2013

I currently use a Nikon D7000 and an X10 as a walk around cam.  Looking to get a 3rd cam which is lighter weight when it comes to zooms and need it to be convenient for menus etc hence liking the EVF.  Looking at both the Fuji XS-1 and Panasonic G5 as both are coming down in price.  I realise the G5 body is slightly smaller, and its sensor is bigger and that the XS-1 has a good reach zoom which I would need to match with a pana 100-300.  On paper the G5 would seem to give better IQ, but I know from my X-10 that the fujis seem to punch above their weight.  Just wondered if anyone had experience of these two cameras side-by-side as it were.
