Holds up well 7 years on

This was never my main camera, bought as a cheap replacement for my GF2. It is a nice size and goes very well together with the small Panasonic MFT primes like 14/2.5 and 20/1.7. I use it for occasional snapshots, and the built-in flash auto exposure mode is very well balanced for indoor snapshots, one of the best I've used! It still feels responsive and well built in 2018.

Weaknesses would be lack of EVF (though there is an add-on available but should be outdated and expensive) and high-iso performance (I don't go over ISO800). Dynamic range and color reproduction is not on top, but acceptable.
