Panasonic G6 first impressions and question
Jun 15, 2013

Hi,

I just bought a G6 for my mother in law. As a gear head of course I had to try it out.

the good things:

Speed! it is really fast, start up, AF

the swivel screen is great: high resolution and touch screen

very nice operation

feels nice in hand despite all the plastic

image quality:

not so sure. It might be the lens. I chose the power zoom for video but I expected more. Is it the lens? high ISO seems not bad but there is a lack of sharpness I did not expect.

What do you think?

Is the 100-300 a good lens? She likes to shoot birds and that lens seems to be a good choice.
