Panasonic Lumix GM-5 Camera Body w/Franiec grip & Flash GM5 (Price REDUCTION)

If you're reading this, you already know the Lumix GM-5 is one of the two smallest high-quality MFT cameras ever made (the other is its little brother, the GM1). The GM5 has a small but functional EVF viewfinder, for use in ultra bright or sunny conditions - and a clever click-wheel control for changing aperture/shutter/other settings. It's got the same high-end 16 Mp sensor as the bigger Panasonic Lumix GX7 - and it boasts a superb level of construction quality and craftsmanship which makes it a pleasure to use and own.

Additonally, my GM5 has a seriously cool option - a front-mounted Richard Franiec custom grip (probably the best add-on grip ever) - which makes this small camera much easier to 'handle'.

The GM-5 does not have an internal flash. It comes equipped with a 'hot shoe' atop the camera -- as well as the tiny small FLASH UNIT which Panasonic bundled with the camera (SEE photos) - or you can purchase more powerful flash units which will mount in the hot shoe.

I am selling the CAMERA BODY ONLY - NO LENS is included - though it accepts all of the many and excellent micro-four-thirds (mu43) lenses available. It comes with the original box and manuals and CD, as well as a charger and an extra battery. I am the 2nd owner of this camera. It has one minor ding - in the upper left-hand side, visible in the attached photographs - which has never affected its performance or optical or electronic functioning.

I've had the camera approximately 2 years, it has approximately 1650 shutter actuations now - which means it should have a long life expectancy ahead of it.

I live in the U.S. and will ship to either the U.S. or Canada (but nowhere else because of the insane costs and unreliability of international shipping). Price is $355. Buyer to pay shipping (either $15 in the U.S., or $20 to Canada). Payment via PayPal.

This is a superb high-quality semi-pocketable camera which mates beautifully with several tiny ('pancake') micro four thirds lenses. Am selling it because my needs have changed and I'm not using it as much as it deserves. To see some of the photos I've taken with it, check out one of my flickr albums
