How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With very good image quality in almost all lighting conditions, the Lumix GF5 is one of the better interchangeable-lens compact cameras currently available, despite its 12-megapixel sensor, which is relatively low resolution by today's standards (the Sony NEX-5N, one of our recommended cameras, has a 16-megapixel sensor). However, what the GF5 misses in megapixels, it makes up for in lens choices. No other compact system offers as many choices as Panasonic and Olympus' Micro Four-Thirds, making the GF5 a very good choice for budding shutterbugs who want to build out a good collection of glass.
