People should consider this m4/3 Panasonic before buying
10 months ago

It took me a whole day to decide what to buy for a 2nd body, looking at the reviews, samples....etc. At the end, I chose the Panasonic G5 ( didn't want to spend more than $500). And I paid $319 with no tax. To my surprise, the physical size of the G5 is very similar to my E-M5 same height and width but a little lighter. I chose the G5 because it has similar pics quality as E-M5 plus it handles video much better in terms of video quality and the continuous AF in video mode plus it shoots 1080/60p or 720/60p. And the Ex Tele conv. works very well in both video and stills. Built in flash, touch screen operation, many filter effects built in..... and so much more. Oh, another thing I like is the hand grip, is so much easy to hold than my E-M5. For people are thinking which m4/3 body to buy, I highly recommend the G5 or the new G6 as apposed to the more expensive E-M5 unless you really like the IBIS, weather sealed body other than that I don't see any reason not to choose the G5. This is just my opinion and I used to own GF1 and GH2 and the pics quality and features of the G5 is much more and better than the old ones.
