After years as a Silent shoot & commercial photography work cam (and personal cam too) , this is now in retirement as my stroll around camera and its still up to the job !! It`s done over 28,000 shots and is getting brassed corners on the body but lens/sensor is still clean and working beautifully. full marks for longevity, predictability and image quality ! ...... over 4 years old and this thing is still hanging in there ! . STILL being used for theatre costume inventory shoots and as a very compact emergency backup to the DSLRs
Ultra Bargain Subcompact with a Winning Sensor / Lens combo, which are tack sharp edge to edge at F1.8 & amazing detail and DR, far beyond the performance of the LX7 or the Canon S series . lens gives about a 21mm Field of view in RAW without lens correction (DIY in PT Lens) , excellent range and superb IS . only two flies in the ointment - Speed (both writing of the Bloated RAW files and paging through the menus are way behind the times Like Coolpixes are) and the dials are non configurable making the nice command dial useless in AV mode. if Image quality is THE most important to you Get one .. Aug-15 - Still hanging in despite the GM5 , 21mm FOV and F1.8 in a shirt pocket will always be useful........... this slowie would have gone after the arrival of the GM5 if it had not been for its 21mm FOV in RAW and its compactness
I don`t list work kit here usually and although this has taken over the silent duties of the G1X and the casual Event work of APS-C DSLRs for work, I use it for leisure also ....... the GM5 is a GM1 with a very usable built in EVF and a proper command dial - Superb . better video and hotshoe to take the wonderful Olympus EM5-II Flash are the icing on the cake .. makes a superb replacement for compacts with the 12-32 pancake an even better bridgecam replacement with the excellent 14-140-II .......
