Hello, First post from the new guy here. I have been enjoying the M43 system for a few months (Olympus PEN 2) and am seriously considering a move to the wonderful Panasonic DMC-G5. I confess, I really had not followed the Panny line of M43 bodies, as I am pretty happy with my Olympus Pen 2, yet I take advantage of some of the Lumix lenses that I certainly enjoy. I met this gal lately, whom showed me her Panasonic G2. I was quite impressed that it had a viewfinder, flip/rotating screen, and more ergonomic feeling body (the camera, not the gal). In some brief research, I noted quickly that the Panasonic G2 is essentially on about the same level as my PEN 2, as far as megapixels. The nice gal mentioned that Panasonic has the DMC-G5 that I might be more happy with, many of the same features of her G2, but a couple more megapixels, and some other features I might enjoy as I like to shoot HDR. Seems the DMC-G5 will shoot a pretty long bracketing burst for me, like 7 images? Anyway, I started looking for a new in box (not refurb) Panasonic DMC-G5. I was startled to see that a few sources, I think B & H, already show them as "discontinued". I was pleased to see Amazon had them (body only) for $349. (as of 02/09/2014 when I last checked). My quest, or "question" really is, how long does anyone think the DMC-G5 will be available before going extinct from reputable sellers? Should I chance it and wait awhile to see if the price drops even more, or are they likely to be all gone, zip, no more, extinct? Certainly, they would always be avail. through such sources as ebay, but I feel fairly safe trading with Amazon thus far, if people like B & H can't accommodate. Any qualified predictions? $349 for the DMC-G5 body-only is about the top of my price point (I already have several M43 lenses). I can't afford to go any higher than that, really, and if I was going to, I would probably invest in a full size DSLR at that point and keep a foot in both worlds. I am very happy with the images I am getting from my Olympus Pen 2. I am amazed at the INDOOR and natural light shooting results. I also like the fact that typically the M43's don't frighten people into thinking your a stalker, you don't look like a newspaper reporter, and people don't freeze up or "pose" as much. I am an older shooter at 54, and confess I have trouble seeing the screen on the back of my PEN 2 when outdoors. I refuse to pay for the outboard eyepiece for it. I see the need for the Panasonic's included viewfinder, and I can visualize uses for the flip/rotate screen for more creative stuff, low vantage point, etc. Comments, hypotheses? Will I experience a notable gain in image quality in general when stepping from my PEN 2 to the DMC-G5? My over all plan would be to sell my PEN 2 body upon receiving / purchasing a DMC-G5. Thanks, and sorry for the long winded first post.
