Engadget Summary

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6 is a Micro Four Thirds system inside of a DSLR body, offering comparable performance. A lot of the other mirrorless cameras on the market offer a smaller body, but Panasonic has chosen to give the DMC-G6 a more familiar feel by having it resemble a traditional DSLR. TrustedReviews says the G6 "looks and feels like a DSLR" but is still "noticeably smaller" than most. Even with the smaller body, Panasonic still stuck an articulating screen in there, which TechRadar says is a "huge bonus." The G6 delivers "excellent quality for its Micro Four Thirds class," according to Photography Blog, but most critics agree that for as good as the G6 is, it won't beat out rival DSLRs. Still, the G6 comes through in delivering decent video performance, and Camera Labs found the speed "very responsive." But, at $750, Panasonic is pricing the G6 alongside stiff competition like the Olympus OM-D E-M5. Panasonic's LUMIX G6 is a solid choice for someone looking for a Micro Four Thirds camera in a DSLR body, but with some equally good choices costing much less, you have to ask if having the body and viewfinder is worth the price bump.
