Digital Camera Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5
Overall, this Lumix isn't as compact as most other compact mirrorless cameras, but that extra bulk makes for a comfortable grip and good balance. The "little DSLR" feel it has going on isn't just for show. This is a great camera for beginning photographers who want the ability to step up as they learn manual controls but also want great pictures as they learn.
The intelligent Auto function lives up to the name and the autofocus is fast, so getting great output doesn't require a lot of meddling. The DMC-G5 includes both a built-in flash and electronic viewfinder, cutting down on the accessories you have to buy and attach.
