We were renovating our house during the holiday season, and couldn't get to our traditional advent items. This calendar helped make the season for us! We got it as an early Christmas gift. Each morning, one of our two children (ages 5 & 7) took turns opening the little door, and adding to the set and their growing Lego collection. This stimulated their imagination and creativity, and lasts a lot longer than a piece of candy from other calendars. Even weeks later, they still have and play with the set. It had a lot of figures, and really fun pieces (skis, dog, computer desk, coffee mug, etc.). I would definitely do this again.
Long story, but I will try to summarize. Microwave oven on the fritz. Took frozen lean cuisine entree, peeled off plastic wrap from top, food still frozen in plastic black container. Placed in green fry pan upside down with food touching the bottom of the fry pan. Turned electric stove on medium, went back to computer to work as a medical transcriptionist. My small rescue chihauha came in and was jumping all over me. Ignored him for a few minutes and then remembered my lean cuisine dinner on stove. Well, food was burnt bad and outside edges of the plastic container had melted to the green fry pan. I figured the pan was ruined, but let it cool, soaked in soapy water, then proceeded to easily scrape free the burnt on food, let soak a little more, and then removed all, yes all of the plastic container that had melted to the surface of the fry pan. It was a little tougher getting off than was the burnt on food, but it all came off.....amazing. I wish now that I had taken a picture of the mess before I soaked it and cleaned it up. But it is perfect, not a scratch on it, and no more hard black plastic from the lean cuisine package. I don't know what those folks are cooking in their green fry pans that is sticking, but imagine melted hard plastic literally melted and glued to the surface of the fry pan, and it is all gone now. Pan is perfectly shiny again. OMGoodness folks....get one of these green fry pans as seen on TV. I use it almost every day at least once a day. Amazing..........and inexpensive through Amazon. :-)
As I write this review Oct 2013, I have to say that this camera is one of the BEST DEALS anywhere for the quality, functions and versitility of any camera out there.
Although I love the portability and convenience, I was tired of looking at bad, grainy, washed out photos and videos from my phone and my multiple point and shoots over the past few years. However, I did not know if I would want to spend $1000 for a DLSR and did not want to carry around a heavy bulky camera. These Micro 4/3 cameras are absolutely the best = smaller, lighter, well priced and FABULOUS picture quality (of course not $15,000 magazine quality but who cares about 45mp shots???)
I researched ALL the smaller APS and Micro 4/3 and mirrorless cameras for over a month - Fujis, Nikon, Canon, entire Sony line, enitre Olympus line and entire Panasonic line. I was debating getting the Olympus OMD vs waiting for the Panasonic GX7 but did not know if I wanted to spend $1000 to $1500. Then I settled on this Panasonic G5 ($400 cheaper than G6 for 90% of the exact same camera wiht exact same picture quality). For $300 including 14-42mm kit lens, I figured I had nothing to lose. Worse would be I just sell it back out with no $$$ loss. So I bought a used version from Amazon.
After 2 months of use, I LOVE THIS CAMERA. What fun to use and what quality shots. I have quickly acquired a bunch of used lenses for this micro 43 and even purchase the GX1 for $200. My wife always comments about what fantastic photos and especially videos come out of this camera.
If you are just starting to look for a smaller, lighter mirrorles camera. I would absolutely recommend getting this camera first and then if you want all the bells and whistles or more functions or features, only then spend the $$$ and upgrade to the Olympus OMD or Panasonic G6 or GX7.
Here is my thoughts and what I have done For $1100 budget:
$320 G5 + 14-42mm Kit Lens (perhaps not the best but actually very good lens)
$180 Panasonic 45 -150mm Second Generation lighter lens (GREAT quality) OR buy the 50-200mm (larger and heavier but great pics)
$300 Panasonic 20mm F1.7 (LOVELY sharp low light lens but sort of slow / grinding focus - what a deal for the quality!)
$300 Olympus 45mm $1.8 = MY FAVORITE lens. tack sharp, low light, portrait, amazing Bokeh = truly studio professional quality shots.
I loved this camera so much I also purchased the GX1 to carry around in my work bag for $200.
Here are Other Lenses I have purchased for my G5:
$150 Panasonic 14mm F2.5 Nice wide angle and low apeture lense
$20 Minolta MD mount to Micro 43 Adapter
$100 Minolta 28mm F2.8
$20 Minolta 45mm F2.0
$50 Minolta 50mm F1.7
$20 Nikon F Mount to Micro 43 Adapter
$140 Nikon 50mm f1.4
$100 Nikon 28mm f2.8
$220 Nikon 55mm f2.8 Macro lens
$700 Panasonic 14-140mm Super Zoom f3.5
What a great lightweight all around lens that I take with me on travel.
This lens + 20mm + G5 goes with me almost everywhere.
They all fit in a small camera bag and covers all my shots.
Alternative to $700 14-140 f3.5 is to get the same 14-140mm F4.0 lens for $400 BUT the older generation lens is about 2x heavier and 40% bulkier.
I probably will upgrade to the GX7 once the price drops some in a year or 2.
