Panasonic Lumix G5 review by Ken McMahon at Camera Labs: The Panasonic Lumix G5 a great value mirrorless system camera which makes a number of improvements over its predecessor, the G3.

"Panasonic Lumix G5 final verdict: The Panasonic Lumix G5 is a solid upgrade to the earlier Lumix G3 and maintains its position as one of the best value Micro Four Thirds models in the Panasonic line up as well as more generally. The combination of a new 16 Megapixel sensor and updated Venus Engine processor improves on the low noise characteristics and excellent image quality established with the G3 and adds 1080p50/60 HD video and 6fps continuous shooting. And as my quality and noise results prove, the G5 can keep up with the larger APS-C sensors of rival models in most situations. . . . read more

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 camera review at PC Mag: It earns our Editors' Choice award for compact interchangeable lens cameras, even though it's not the least expensive of the bunch.

"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 is an excellent camera. It is capable of capturing excellent photos, focuses fast—even in dim light—and can rattle off shots at an impressive 5.3 frames per second. Its video quality is also impressive, and while the lack of a microphone input may turn serious videographers away from it, it's probably an overkill for recording home movies to share on YouTube or watch on your HDTV. You'll get an excellent shooting experience whether you use the eye-level viewfinder or the rear LCD to frame shots, and there is a vast library of native Micro Four Thirds lenses available from Panasonic, Olympus, Sigma, and Voigtlander.

Resolution (And moire) comparison test between the Sony NEX-7, NEX-5R, Fuji X-E1, Panasonic G5 and Olympus E-M5 at Dslr-Check.

Two things are amazing about this comparison: First, the amount of detail these small sensors can resolve nowadays. And second, how susceptible they have become to moire due to weak or absent antialiasing filter. There are full sized samples from each camera, a bit further down the page, one for a jpeg straight from the camera and another jpeg converted from Lightroom. Oh, there's another amazing thing, the amount of screw-ups Google translator can do on a simple page as this: . . . read more

Panasonic G5 Review at NeoCamera: If you're looking for a small capable and affordable m4/3 camera, this should be near the top of your list.

"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 delivers nice image quality in a mid-size mirrorless camera with an integrated EVF and customizable interface. This makes is suitable for intermediate photographers who prefer to shoot with the camera at eye-level and use certain controls often. The G5 turns in a balanced performance. It excels at autofocus speed while being average in terms of image quality and performance when compared to other mirrorless cameras. There are a few usability issues which make certain mistakes more likely but this digital camera does not do anything poorly.

Panasonic Lumix G5 review by Mark Goldstein

"The Panasonic Lumix G5 is an accomplished mirrorless camera that upgrades its excellent predecessor in a number of significant ways in order to keep up with the fast-moving competition. A higher price tag means that it's not quite the bargain that the G3 was, but we can still highly recommend this realistic alternative to a bigger and bulkier DSLR." . . . read more
