Panasonic's latest interchangeable-lens compact camera has some very useful features, including a swiveling touchscreen LCD display, a wide range of shooting modes including a good HDR mode, and, of course, access to the full range of Micro Four-Thirds lenses. It's a good choice if you're looking to upgrade from a point-and-shoot, or want to trade in an older Micro Four Thirds model. However, you should also check out gdgt Must-have Sony α NEX-5N and the new NEX-5R if you're on the fence about which compact system to choose.
The G5 is more expensive than the model it replaces, however we feel that the improvements make it worth the investment. The Panasonic Lumix G5 has an abundance of features, excellent image quality, and is good value for money, making it well worth investing in. Highly Recommended.
