Gf5 second hand opinions
3 months ago

Hi I got an offer from a online photo store

for the gf5 with the compact kit lens for 220 euros.

Here are some questions that I would like to spend some time

1. I guess as a combo fits inside a jacket pocket

2. How is the interface of the camera, in terms of adjusting settings in manual mode. Too much menu diving is not desirable

3. Can I mount legacy lenses on such camera?

4. Is there focus peaking or something else to assist me with manual focusing?

5. How the sensor of gf5 can be compared with the nikon j1 sensor? Please have a look at the measurements tab here: http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GF5-versus-Nikon-1-J1___799_744   where you can see that nikon j1 has better dynamic range (what it means ?)

I would like to thank you in advance for your reply

Regards

Alex

Nikon 1 J1 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5
