Get this deal, sell the camera, done.
of course that kind of defeats the purpose of buying it somewhere else
:lol:
I intend on selling the cam and keeping the lens, already have 2 m43 bodies

powerslave12r 06-16-2013 05:01 PM

Excellent deal. Really hard to resist.

Styl3 06-16-2013 05:12 PM

Decent deal, I'd sell both lenses and get the 20mm 1.7 though.

The 45-150 is pretty decent, optically better (and more solid feel) than the 45-200. I mostly agree about the 20mm 1.7 (which really outperforms its modest price) but that one focal length can't do everything, sometimes you need/want some reach. I don't really use my m4/3 stuff for those shots, but not everyone is willing to invest in multiple systems. You can probably expect to clear ~250 if you sell both lenses, after fees.

gerrytwo 06-16-2013 06:29 PM

One Amazon poster wrote that the G5 could only record video for 29 minutes, so as not to compete with an upcoming higher priced iteration of this camera. I have the G3 version bought when Target had that camera on sale last year with the 14-42MM lens. The 14-42MM lens is a shoddy lens. The 45-150MM Panasonic lens I bought separately at a Best Buy sale has a much better feel to its focusing ring.

jimx200 06-16-2013 06:32 PM

No question it's a outstanding camera..but so are many others at roughly near it's price point. What concerns me is the notoriously poor Panasonic warranty repair if something goes wrong. There are many attempted warranty horror stories where people have been completely rejected for warranty work or replacement for a defective and in warranty camera. Plus committing to the Panny lens system is a step up price wise compared to Canikon. If I was a video shooter, then I would have no problem with the Panny as they really are at the top of HD video.

My choice would be the Canon SL1 where one has the largest lens choices of any cam on the market and usually at discounted prices. That and Canon has always come through on their warranty.

jeremym 06-16-2013 06:53 PM

14-42 isn't the best lens. I had the 14-45 and it was much better all around.

29 min 59sec pretty much the limit you will see. This is because Europe put big tax on device that can record over this number. Some models go around with breaking files at 29 min, but most don't.

It shows $637 right up until the "confirm order" stage, when the combo discount is applied and the price drops to $437.

qqsubs 06-16-2013 08:47 PM

What's the effective "zoom" on these lenses? I'm new to DSLR/mirrorless camera world and more used to the P&S cameras.

I remember reading somewhere that I should divide the smaller number into the bigger number to get the zoom value 3.g. 42/14 for the 14-42mm lens to get an approx zoom of 3. Does the same apply to the 45-150 as well? This seems to be a zoom or 3 as well. So if I bought the system, will I not be able zoom more that 3X?

BTW, these qualify as the most ignorant questions I've ever asked in my life :-)

DRod1979 06-16-2013 08:47 PM

Minus the 45-150mm lens from Amazon last week :mad:

Everything is based on 35mm.

The micro 4/3 has a crop factor of 2x, meaning your 14mm lens is the same as a 28mm lens on a 35mm camera.

The 14-42 = 28-84mm, and the 45-150 = 90-300mm.

300/28 would make it a "10.7x" zoom range equiv.

Lilboi 06-16-2013 10:28 PM

Is this camera better or equivalent to the Canon T3i?

Didn't you price shop before buying? G5 deals pretty much always have the 45-150 bundled in.

Very similar, although T3i has a larger sensor. If size isn't an issue, I'd go with T3i.

The crop factor does not have any magnification yield (both 45-150 and 90-300 are 3.3x), - it's just to show how narrow the lens is on a 35mm system.

The "x" for the zoom only applies to the lens in question.
Yes, a 45-150 gives you 3.3x zoom, but that doesn't mean a 4.3-21.5 zoom lens gives you longer focal length because it is has a 5x magnification. The max focal length on the 45-150 is 150mm, while the 4.3-21.5 is only 21.5mm.

Correct. The old (14-45) kit lens is much better optically and costs more to manufacture, that's why it's no longer the lens included with the kit.

Correct. This is easier to use if you don't know anything about exposure/aperture/shutter speed and you want the camera to do all of the thinking for you.

This can use Olympus lenses natively also, and can be adapted to nearly anything. I use my EF mount lenses on my m4/3 format cams all the time.

puddnhead 06-17-2013 05:18 AM

Great deal if you are looking to move up from p&S but don't' want to pay CaNikon prices (or carry that weight). I'm the OP of the last time this deal came around, a little cheaper then (got mine for $359! But that required a bit of luck) but this is still a great deal.General comment: there is a quite a bit of misinformation & distortion in comments on this thread, IMO. I recommend you look for reviews/advice/comparison outside this site, particularly on dedicated photography sites.

Rule of thumb: anytime anyone says one product is "1000x better", it's probably not a carefully thought out, reliable opinion. I double up on that opinion if the judgement is not even leavened with a qualification like "... for this kind of user." The reality is, how good a product like a camera system is, is very dependent on your needs/desires.

Kind of like how on amazon the 1 & 5 star reviews are often, on average the least useful.

FYI, this supposedly universally sucky camera somehow was runner up in Imaging Resource's 2012 Entry-Level Interchangeable Lens Camera of the Year [imaging-resource.com] award, to the Nikon D3200. But what do those people at IR know about cameras, thankfully we have cgigate to set us straight, lol.

wingsword 06-17-2013 05:35 AM

I know, but the person who was questioning it was taking into account both lenses. That's why I converted everything into 35mm equiv which is the correct way to do it.

Correct, I didn't say otherwise. It is, however, much easier for a noob to use in that the Auto mode produces good results and the AF is fast and extremely accurate.

This is a curious statement. Have you purchased any m4/3 lenses other than the one that came with the camera? The really good ones cost just as much as DSLR lenses.

drmarquez1 06-17-2013 03:12 PM

How is everyone getting this deal for $437? When I add the camera and lens ($499 + $239) it takes off $200 at the place order page it comes out to $582.38 (with tax). Am I missing something? Both items are Amazon products.

Deal is dead - I actually got in just a few seconds before they changed it. Placed the order then went back to the camera to look at some info and the price went from $398 to $499. My order total was $437 for both the G5 kit and the extra lens. Good, if not great price!

Still a good deal but not the best.

I got the same package around $400 back in April. Amazon said it's a price mistake though. but many shipped.

Do you have some sample shots as examples for why you feel this way about this camera?

I can see it won't be the same as APS-C cameras but what in particular disappointed you?

no, all G5 does same things.
I thought it might be an individual defective camera or lens , and asked Amazon to send another camera and lens kit replacement.
the new replacement is exactly same.
the G5's IQ is definitely not good.
Any under $100 brand name 16MP P&S cameras take much better pictures than G5

This is not true. I own both the T3i (and better Canon DSLRs) as well as the G5 (and many other micro 4/3 cameras). There is nothing wrong with my G5, but I would recommend the 14-45 over the 14-42 for better image and build quality if you use zoom lenses (I usually don't, I like my sensors very clean). This body really shines with a fast prime lens like the 20 1.7 or 25 1.4.

I ended up ordering a Fuji X-E1. The X Pro 1 / X-E1 are said to be the closest thing to a Leica you can get without dropping a few K on a Leica. The Fujinon lenses are best in class, and Adorama and others have some attractive bundle offers right now. I ordered the incredible 35/1.4 to make a stealthy camera for street photography.

That lens is a beauty and the 6D is a great camera in it's own right, but I wanted something without an AA filter. I have a 7D and love it, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Fuji has better IQ just based on the removal of the AA filter.

The always controversial Ken Rockwell says:

"The X-E1 has image quality and lenses more like my LEICA M9 than any DSLR, and it's smaller and lighter than any DSLR — or LEICA. The X-E1 does what the LEICA M9 does well, even better than the M9 does it!"

and

"Fuji's optics are superior, offering SUMMICRON image quality with SUMMILUX speed, something even LEICA can't do."

No doubt, the X-E1 images (and the x100/ xpro1) have 'that' quality to them.

I'm not comparing the 6D to the X-E1, heck I'm hoping to get a nice X-E1 to keep alongside the 6D. I just brought it up, cause I'm on that trip for now.

Don't hold out on us here if you come across any X-E1 deals. :D

I agree, I love my 7D for some uses and Canon EF has some amazing glass out there. IQ is even better on the 6D than the 7D.

I couldn't pass on it. I sold some m4/3 stuff I don't use much (mostly zoom lenses) to make room.

LOL I'm already browsing ten thousand reviews/sites looking for something to put me OFF the camera. So far, it has only got worse.

I have the lowepro 140 [newegg.com], got it from newegg when it was $7 or something. It holds the camera/lenses in this deal, plus a 14mm prime, b=plus charger & extra batteries and some other stuff. It is spacious enough that you could have the camera in there with the 45-150mm already mounted, and still have room for at least a couple other lenses.

Going small , I see thisebay auction for a lowepro 130 for $9 [ebay.com]. It will be tighter, but ... maybe you'll want that?
