Product Description

Lumix G Micro Four Thirds (MFT) System

Developed in 2008, Micro Four Thirds revolutionised the photographic market. The MFT system removed the reflex mirror and replaced it with a high quality electronic viewfinder that reads the image coming through the lens as it is focussed directly on the image sensor. The mirror-less system allows the sensor to be mounted much closer to the back of the lens, which in turn allows both the camera body and lenses to be smaller and lighter without compromising the image quality.

Large LIVE MOS Image Sensor

The size and type of sensor was a critical part in the development of Lumix G. 8x larger than the sensor used in a typical compact camera, and large enough to capture all the light coming through the lens without bending or distortion. The Micro Four Thirds sensor is almost as large as a Digital SLR APS-C sized sensor, but is designed to match the lens mount aperture perfectly, allowing the light to enter the camera in a straight line.

Supersonic Wave Filter Self Cleaning Sensor System

Dust particles on the image sensor have been a common problem with interchangeable lens cameras. It is important to take care not to allow particles to enter the camera body when swapping lenses. Panasonic have a Supersonic Wave Filter built in to our Lumix G models. The filter sits directly in front of the image sensor, preventing dust particles from adhering to the sensor directly. Every time the camera is powered up, the filter vibrates at such a high frequency that dust particles are literally shaken off.

A Growing Range Of Compatible Interchangeable Lenses

Whatever photo opportunity arises, the growing number of creative lenses available for the Micro Four Thirds System ensures that you won't miss out. Over 30 models from manufacturers such as Olympus, Sigma, Leica and, of course, Panasonic are already available with more being added regularly.

Mount Adaptors Available for Leica M, Leica R and Four Thirds Lenses

The Micro Four Thirds system also supports the range of lenses available for the original Four Thirds standard, by way of the MA1 adaptor ring. Also for Leica enthusiasts, adaptor rings are available for the Leica M and Leica R lenses.

Photo Quality

18.31MP (16.05MP Effective) Digital Output LIVE MOS Sensor

Panasonic's most sophisticated and powerful Live MOS sensor incorporates a built-in Analogue to Digital convertor which eliminates signal noise in the output stage. The advantage of this is exceptionally clean images are generated even at ISO sensitivity settings as high as 12800.

Ultra High Speed 0.09 sec Auto-focus Capability

Our fastest ever auto-focus speed can be obtained when combining this camera with the H-PS14042 power zoom lens. The combination of this lightning fast sensor and lens control means you get the action in focus more of the time.

Eye-Sensor AF Control

The Electronic Live Viewfinder incorporates an eye sensor that automatically switches the display from the LCD screen to the EVF when it detects a person looking in to it. The Eye Sensor AF automatically starts focusing when a photographer looks into the LVF to capture the spur-of-the-moment.

New Touch-Pad AF Control

When using the Electronic Live Viewfinder the free-angle LCD screen doubles up as a touch-pad. This conveniently enables you to select or move the Auto Focus point without taking your eye off the viewfinder.

Electronic (Silent Shutter) Mode

Although the camera shutter noise can be reassuring, to let you know that the shot has taken, sometimes it's better to have no noise at all. In some shooting situations a noise may frighten or upset your subject. The Electronic shutter mode allows silent operation of the camera.

Enhanced Shooting Assist Function - Level Gauge

A handy Level Gauge is provided on the display that helps you to correctly align the camera. Whether shooting in a landscape or portrait orientation, the camera's internal gyro sensor always knows the angle of the camera and displays guide lines on screen to help you hold the camera level.

Enhanced Shooting Assist Function - Multiple Scene Shooting Guide

To help you learn to shoot like a pro photographer, Panasonic have introduced a scene guide that shows you what your pictures could look like with the correct settings. 23 professionally shot photographic scene examples are pre loaded in the camera. You select the one that you wish to try and emulate and the guide explains how to do it.

14 Creative Effect Filters

I am well experienced in the use of the Panasonic Lumix G series having previously owned a G2 and currently owning a G3 and a G5. The G5 is a great improvement on the previous models especially for handling. In their efforts to make the G3 smaller, Panasonic drastically reduced the size of the handgrip making it hard to hold firmly without accidentally pressing the buttons on the back of the camera. The grip on the G5 has not only returned to roughly the same size as that on the G2 but has been enhanced by being leather and having indentations for your middle finger and your thumb, and your fore finger falls naturally onto the shutter release button as the top plate has a slight incline where it meets the grip. Also the video recording button has been more sensibly moved to the top plate. The G2 had some fiddly awkward to use controls on the left hand side of the top plate which were moved to the menu on the G3 and have stayed there for the G5.

Picture quality is better and even at 3,200 ISO there is little evidence of noise. There is a good sensitivity range from 160 to 12,800 although I would have liked some lower settings such as 100 or 50 to help if you want to use a slow shutter speed in bright light. Several shooting modes are available from intelligent auto, scene and creative through to program shift, aperture priority, shutter priority and manual so there is something there for everyone from `point and shooters' to enthusiasts. Four custom modes can be set to remember your preferred settings for different situations. Shutter speeds are from 60 seconds to 1/4000 plus bulb up to 2 minutes. The autofocus is fast and the camera can shoot at up to 20 frames a second without raw files or 6 with raw files so capturing action is easy.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: 14-42mm Lens
My wife got a G6 recently and I saw these G5's now heavily discounted so I bought one. I have been an occasional amateur photographer for about 50 years - more off than on. I had a Contax SLR but switched to just snapping with Canon Powershots ( absolutely fine cameras ) when the days of film cameras ended - somehow never switched to DSLR's.

One major advantage of the micro 4/3 system is that I can use all my old SLR lenses on this body easily with adapters and since I was brought up using cameras in the days before AE. AF etc, its absolutely no hassle for me - and its something I enjoy in fact - to use the G5 in manual mode or with AE.

I've run off about 500 shots in the few weeks that I've had the G5 - on the kit lenses and various legacy lenses - mainly Zeiss Planar/Sonnars and Tamron SP2's. Really pleased with the ease with which I can get good images.

The controls are pretty straightforward and the menu system is intuitive - I got used to it in a few hours. I don't use the touch screen much - the electronic viewfinder is fine and I have had no probs getting sharp focus with manual lenses.

The image stabilisation in the lumix kit lenses seems to work well and I have got sharp images with just press and shoot on the iA mode when I would have normally needed to brace for hand held or use a tripod - e.g. on the 45-140 kit lens at 140 mm.

For the price these are going at this is a no-brainer. If I ever feel rich, I'd probably get an Olympus OM-d EM10 body to use as well - just for the ibis stabilisation system to use with the old lenses but these are selling on Amazon at nearly twice the price of the G5.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: Body Only
The idea of the Micro Four-Thirds system - DSLR performance and flexibility without the size and weight - really appealed to me, but I didn't like Olympus' retro styling, and Panasonic's first couple of G series cameras, the G1 and G2, weren't that much smaller than low-end DSLRs. Then Panasonic launched the G3, an M43 camera that was noticeably smaller than equivalent DSLRs, and I took the plunge.

I loved (and still love) the G3 - by far my favorite digital camera of the numerous models I've used. It takes still images that are comparable with those I can get from my Canon EOS 550D - the only area where it loses out to the EOS is in very low-light photography. In terms of video recording, it's in a different league from the EOS, which is seriously compromised as a video camera - the G3 is superb for video. And it manages this in a body which is two-thirds the size and weight of an EOS.

When the G5 was announced, I couldn't see any reason to upgrade from the G3 - and then I noticed the button layout. One of my few gripes about the G3 was the lack of a dedicated focus/exposure lock button - it seems I wasn't alone in this, as Panasonic have added one to the G5, in a sensible place where it is easy to use. That alone was enough to tempt me, and eventually I weakened...

I've now been using the G5 for a week, and guess what? I have a new favorite camera... The G5 does everything the G3 did, just as well as the G3 did it. The main difference between the two is in handling - the new hand grip and the redesign of the buttons, and the addition of an eye sensor to detect when the viewfinder is in use. These are small changes, but they make the G5 so much nicer to use than the G3.
