What I like about the Panasonic G6
About 4 years ago I picked up a Panasonic 14-45 lens and it is certainly well mated to this camera. Of course, this allowed me to buy just the body and saving me a little money in the end. The photo shows the 14-42 lens mounted to the camera (obviously not my photo).
Things I really like; the level meter, the numerous buttons that can be customized, a popup flash among others. The EVF is much better than the EPL-5' + VF2 which surprised me somewhat. I did not realize that there would be such a difference in colour clarity and the size of the displayed image.
The handling and ergonomics are much like a DSLR with a protruding grip that allows you to hold the camera very firmly. I wish the strap were a little longer though because I tend not to use it as much as I should. I have a SEMA-1 Olympus mic with 20 foot cable and I was delighted to discover that the mic is perfectly compatible with the G6 which has a front situated input jack, very, very handy. The swiveling touch screen screen is also an attractive feature that allows shooting from almost any angle.
There are plenty of features that I have not explored yet but I think it will be an interesting journey. I can't think of anything I dislike, oh, perhaps the plasticity feel of the camera but I have no doubt that the camera will be durable enough when I take it on our trip to Europe in the spring.
