A bit of a bargain.

    I've just aquired a Panny GM5, from John Lewis, for £300. That includes the full 2 year guarantee. It was a display model and missing the box and battery, so batteries are coming from Amazon.

    This thing is seriously tiny, here it is next to my current default camera, the E-PL5 with a 9~18mm and then next to a G-2 with the 45~200mm...

    That's a great deal, well done. How much are the batteries? The GM5 is a camera which has just about everything I want in a camera, on paper at least. Don't need another camera though...

    I bought the ExPro twin pack at £18 (+ £9 for next day delivery).

    After a single day, I'm very impressed. It's a real take anywhere camera with a decent sized sensor in a really compact format. The standard lens is very nice as well.

    I'm going to be selling off a lot of kit soon. I have three digital systems, two film systems and way too many digital compacts. This will replace several other older cameras and I'll reform my lens selection at the same time.

    Here's one of today's shots, about half of the 4:3 image...

    Nice one, Senator. Saved about £200 - £250! Like the look of the GMs. Canon Chris has one. He speaks highly of it. It's almost pocketable, certainly with baggy trousers, depending on the lens fitted. However, it should match anything in Panny's range for output, again depending on lens, as well as most other digi-cams from any maker.
