Size aside, how would this compare the the Nikon d5300 that went super hot yesterday? Have one reserved to pick up today, but am concerned that the size will prevent an amateur like me from getting much use of it.

Is image quality from this similar?

basically yes, the sensor is a bit smaller so there is an advantage in low light for the nikon but this isn't shabby by any means
have a google or check flickr for samples - this also has a number of features like 4k video and in body stabilisation
here is a size comparison: j.mp/2I0…ntX



is camerapricebuster broken btw? so many times lately its showing wrong prices or missing retailers
I have this and paid nearly double for it...it's an excellent bit of kit and perfect for someone looking to take photography more seriously. It's also a great travel camera for any skill level due to its size, weight and features. I've travelled with this and paired it with a do it all lens like the lumix 14-140 so that I very rarely have to carry or change lenses. As was mentioned above though, the only negative is it does suffer in lower light conditions.
All this talk of low light makes me wonder why nobody has thought of inventing a small bright light source that can be synchronised with the shutter.
Seriously though, get yourself a little, panasonic or other, flash to go with this and more importantly learn how to use it.

It has a flash built in....Using the flash brings about other issues and will only work for close up shots, so if you intend to use it in low light situations it's a valid thing to consider. For me it's a small price to pay for the overall package of the camera.

I have a GX8 with 12-35 f2.8 and Nikon D610 FX with 24-70mm lens. In a side by side comparison in good light they are similar. In low light the Panasonic is quite a bit noisier.
If you can find me a small, synchronise light that can light a whole building, while being discrete and not caused addition extraneous shadows. All while not calling in Batman or communicating with the moon, I’d appreciate it.
Out of stock.

Yes, your d610 has a larger sensor. Less noise in some conditions. Congratulations!
Now to paraphrase Edward Steichen... photo is not made by the camera, but on either side of it.

BTW buildings don't move much. Try a slower shutter speed + tripod.

Funny that. In side by side situations. Where a desired shutter speed is required, the 4/3 is noisier. A tripod will reduce movement and blur. It will not remove noise.
You clearly wanted to say something smart. Well done you tried but it doesn’t fit the situations.

Best of luck to you and your photography.

Thanks. Just home from work and they've all sold out

Suprised this didn't get more heat, the size difference is huge vs the camera that went to 1k heat yesterday.

For now I will carry on with my s8
John Lewis have matched the Currys price and appear to have stock:
