I have been thinking that a resolution chart would be handy thing to have. The I saw the prices!  I can buy a new G5 body or a lens for less money than most of these charts. Does anyone have any pointers on how to get a reasonable resolution chart for less? I have a Pixma Pro-100, I'm wondering if I can print a resolution chart somehow. --Eric

Hi, this is my first post on DP Review so treat me gently please! I have just purchased my first MFT camera, a Lumix G5, having moved up from a Lumix LX5. I have made some standard initial camera settings but am finding that with Photo Style on STD, Colour Space set to S RGB and EV to Zero the image colours are much paler than the equivalent image on my LX5. They appear over exposed/washed out. I am thus slightly disappointed with the results. I suppose I would class myself as a keen beginner...

G5 or G6 ?  I am sure that many of you have one or other or have had both (or still have both !).  Any preferences ? --Dave

Looking for recommended external battery solutions for Olympus OMD cameras (I have E-M5 now and have ordered E-M1 to arrive later this week). I have the Olympus HLD-6 grip, and will order the HLD-7 grip eventually. But I am looking for a solution which will last all day.I have Panasonic cameras (GH3, G5, FZ200, FZ150) and use the corresponding coupler (e.g. DMW-DCC12 DC coupler for GH3) with an external battery (e.g. Tekkeon myPower ALL Plus MP3450i Battery (5-19V) which outputs 8.4V DC for...

I have two Panasonic G5 cameras, that have displayed awful image quality with different lenses (100-300 and 14-42pz, 14-45 even 20).  Even in good light, 160iso, low focal length.  What is wrong?  Could both my G5s be out of whack?  They are lightly used. I replaced a G3 and GH2 with these two G5s and wow, the image quality just isn't there.  :-(  I have had the G2, GF2, G3, GH2 and had no issues.  Something must be off? Have I somehow found the 'kill your image quality setting'?

Hi, I am recently the proud owner of a Panasonic DMC-G5. When studying the manual I run into something that is not clear to me. It is about page 37 of the manual. It says that AF area (B) is Green when the subject is focused if focus mode is AFS. On my G5, with focus mode AFS and AF Mode is set to 23-Area the areas are only a split second green. When I release the shutter button and press it again it repeats. *1 on the same page indicated: When AF Mode is set to [23-Area], the first AF area...

I am replacing my back-up G5 with another Olympus body, either the E-P5 or E-M1. My main body at the moment is the E-M5 which I love. I am going to take advantage of the current rebates to buy the 12-40 and 75 at the same time with $200 off each. Simply put, I was set on the E-P5 and VF4 due to the $500 savings and the fact that I love the output of my E-M5. Now I am trying to decide if I am being foolish for not biting the bullet and get the added features/benefits of the E-M1. While the...

As noted in another thread (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52808081), for some reason DPReview appear to have 'skipped' doing an in-depth review of either the Panasonic G6 or G5, even though they are popular cameras. Is there any obvious reason? Cheers Matt

I'm moving up from point and shoot to a camera with a larger sensor and better lenses. The m4/3 size seems promising because of the decent size sensor yet relatively small and light camera/lenses (compared to DSLR). I also want swivel LCD (but would accept tilt) and want to learn to work in raw with Lightroom. Since my price range (for now) is under $1k, I'm considering the older Panasonic G5 or G6. Maybe in the future I'll be able to afford something like the GX7 (or its successor) or the...
