Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 (with 14-42mm lens, Red) Reviewed on August 6, 2012 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 (with 14-42mm lens, Red)

The Bottom Line: With capable, speedy performance, and a friendly but powerful interface, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 is a good choice for people looking to upgrade from a point-and-shoot. Read review

Sony Alpha NEX-F3 (with 18-55mm lens, Silver) Reviewed on May 17, 2012 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Alpha NEX-F3 (with 18-55mm lens, Silver)

The Bottom Line: Though it doesn't wow us for any particular aspect, the Sony Alpha NEX-F3 is a nice overall package for photographers looking for something with better photo quality and more flexible than a point-and-shoot. Read review

Specs: 16.1 megapixels, 3 x, 15.6 x 23.5mm, Exmor APS HD CMOS, Optical (Steady Shot)

Olympus E-PM2 (with 14-42mm Lens, Black)

  • CNET Editor rating:
    0.0 stars
      Overall score: 0.0 (0.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 2 reviews

Olympus E-PL2 (with 14-42mm lens, Black) Reviewed on March 2, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Olympus E-PL2 (with 14-42mm lens, Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.7 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: A great interchangeable-lens model if you're looking for better photo quality and/or a more advanced feature set than your current point-and-shoot offers, the Olympus PEN E-PL2 still doesn't satisfy for photographing active kids and pets. Read review

Specs: Compact, 12.3 megapixels, 2 x, 28 - 84mm F/3.5, 13.0 x 17.3mm, Live MOS, Optical (image sensor shift mechanism)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (with 14mm lens, Red) Reviewed on March 10, 2011 Check prices

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 (with 14mm lens, Red)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though we still really like Panasonic's GF series, there are several trade-offs to take into account before you buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2. Its raw-format images look extremely good, but JPEG shooters looking for best-possible photo quality may get frustrated by image artifacts. And while lots of photographers will appreciate its relatively compact but functional design and zippy performance--though still not for action shooting--there's nothing special about its feature set, including underpowered video capture.

Product overview
Pentax K-01 (Body Only, Yellow)

The Bottom Line: It's a great option if you have a shelf full of K-mount lenses and don't mind missing some action shots, but the Pentax K-01 isn't such a great option for a typical amateur photographer. Read review

Product overview
Fujifilm X-E1 (Body Only, Silver)

The Bottom Line: It's not a general-purpose recommendable camera thanks to subpar video and slightly sluggish performance, but for photo-quality-first photographers who want the analog-ish shooting experience, the Fujifilm X-E1 rules in its price range. Read review
