Thanks that is good to know that one is available, but I think I may go with the Nikon.
I also like the fact that the Nikon has wireless capabilities with the adapter.

Actually, the Eye-Fi Pro X2 Card can add WiFi to almost any camera.

But I still think you'd be better off with the Nikon.

The more I look the better I think the Nikon would be as my choice. I like the wireless capability to control the shutter release.

I do like the fact that the Panasonic is a little smaller and does offer 14 adjustable filters, but truthfully I am not sure if I would use them.

Well after doing more looking and reading I ended up purchasing the Lumix G5. I just liked the Lumix better than the Nikon for a reason I can't explain. The fact that it was $140.00 cheaper helped as it gives me a little extra for accessories.

Since Costco has a generous 90 day return policy I can try it out and if I am not happy with it return it.
This a 60th birthday gift from my wife and she said if turns out not to be what I want that I should look again at Nikon 3200 or even the 5200.

Thanks to everyone for your comments.

Good luck with it. I hope it works out well for you.
