So while everyone getting better love with newer mark from G7X, G5X but still raging for unchanged poor autofocus performance i have bought a like-new G5X first version for only 300$ with few dust specks inside the lens, got professionally cleaning for 5$. With one day experience the camera, here is my short review Pros - Solid build with SLR-like shape! - Touch screen - Fast and smooth interface operation - Excellent image quality for the sensor size - Sharp and clear EVF, LCD screen - ...

I recently bought a G5 X as a walkaround and to compliment my Canon mirrorless and DSLR kit comprising 2 x EOS RP and a 7D MKI. I've only been using it for a week and am really impressed with the IQ and ease of use. It's also really intuitive and has similar controls to my other cameras which is also a plus as I'm not having to learn new menu items.

I have a lot of big DSLRs and big heavy lenses, but they are not what I tend to take with me on multi-day hikes for fairly obvious reasons.   Historically I was taking the SX60HS, which is a great unit when it gets enough light, but like any small-sensor camera it suffers from noise when the lighting becomes more challenging. For a multi-day hike I was taking a Canon EOS M5 as my main unit and the G5X as my backup.  The focal range of 24-100 equivalent was fine for landscapes and I was very ...

I wanted a fixed lens camera with a built in EVF, hot shoe, 1"+ sensor, decent aperture (f/2.8 and wider), and 4x+ zoom rage.

I won't comment on the LX100 since I don't have one but I heard it's a worthy successor to my trusty LX7 with a faster equivalent aperture than the G5 X. However I wanted greater zoom range ...

I own my camera for 2 weeks. It's overall use is great. fast and quic AF, very bright lens. solid construction, good hensling. only one think is inacceptable - battery lif. is use eye level viewer - so it should consume not to much power. but it makes me crazy to change the batt after 2-3 hours of moderate use.

I've had the G5X for only a couple of days now, so consider this a working review to which I will add updates as I spend more time with it. However, I think I've used it enough to get a good idea of this camera's strengths and weaknesses. IMAGE QUALITY: Excellent. Not terribly different from the G7X but that was to be expected given it uses the same lens, sensor, processor. One thing I really like on the G5X is the low compression JPEG option, which gives some really terrific results. I am ...
