Ordered a G5 at the weekend direct from Panasonic e- shop after a tip off from member ShrubMonkey on another thread with regard to discount code LLNGW398 (used at checkout) This discounted a black G5 body to £423.00 !!! (Down from about £595) Wasn't sure if the code would actually work but lo and behold It arrived today !! Many thanks ShrubMonkey - wouldn't have known otherwise Ergonomics on the G3 were not an issue for me personally but having said that the G5 is a great improvement - the 'acid test' being how it handles with the 14 - 140 which it passed with flying colours The contoured grip is very comfortable and much more DSLR like The camera is much more secure when held in one hand Looking forward to using he camera when time permits loving it so far !
