I have the Lumix G1 with the 14-45mm, 45-200mm lens, but the memory cover fell off, the flash hot shoe damaged by a third party thumb rest ,with a trip to Africa coming up I decided to upgrade to the Olympus OMD-em5. When I compared it with the G6 in the shop, despite the better quality of the Olympus I didn't like its handling, the Lumix G6 felt so secure to hold. I bought the G6 with an Olympus 60mm macro lens, these two are a good combination. The rear screen and viewfinder have improved ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6
Okay, I have just deliberately run right down one of my 3rd party batteries for the Panny G6. 508 exposures: perhaps 460 of them using the EVF, the remainder using the LCD screen; a couple of dozen fill-in flash shots using the built-in flash; chimping quite a lot, including reviewing and deleting quite a few pix, maybe 100 or a bit more. A lot of exposures were medium speed burst mode with EVF refresh. There were some extended periods of power on but not shooting; and lots of focusing but ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review

It is not weatherproof and is slightly plasticky. BUT it is well built. Feels grew in the hand. Has a great ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
I've used the micro 4/3 cameras since Panasonic first introduced the GH1 and GF1 for their unique combination of image quality, sensor size for low light performance, and video capabilities. My current cameras include the Oly OMD-EM5, EPL1, Panasonic GX1, and now the G6. This review is focused more on the video capability of the G6, as I use it professionally for field research in this capacity. The G6 is my overall favorite m4/3 camera because it combines very good still capability with the ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
