Lots of detail can be captured by the G5's 16 million pixel Four Thirds sensor. This image has been shot with a Panasonic 45mm macro lens, with the camera in "Expressive" mode to boost the colours.
In standard colour mode, the G5 produces images which are bright and punchy, without being overly vibrant.
In artificial lighting conditions the G5 has a tendency to err on the side of warm when using the Auto White Balance function.
This image was shot with a 25mm Panasonic lens, and shows the kinds of creative effects that can be had with a wide aperture. It has also been shot with a Cross Process effect.
These two images show the difference between the camera in "normal" mode and when using the "Impressive Art" Creative Effect.
A large number of lenses are available for Micro Four Thirds cameras. This was shot on a 7-14mm ultra wide angle lens.
The Toy Camera effect (also used in the previous picture) creates a vignette around the edge of the image to replicate a pinhole type effect.
Panasonic shares the Micro Four Thirds format with Olympus, meaning that lenses can be swapped between the two. This image was taken with an Olympus 45mm f/1.8 portrait lens.
