  • On the contrary - using a sharp superzoom like the 14-140mm really allows you to use all the great primes.  Think of it this way: Option 1: carry 2 great zooms, like the 12-40 + 40-150 (or ...
  • Great discussion.  I do have 2 bodies - but typically only take one.  Regardless, if / when I do take 2 bodies, I usually have a zoom on one and prime on the other.  For zoom - I have and use the ...
  • Yup - anyone buying the Sony A7 series should give up the idea of using zooms.  Too big to start with (might as well just use Nikon at that point, with better selection and quality), and simply ...
  • Replied in I would rather
    I'm with you Barty.  And with stacked-sensor, would love a 1/60th sensor readout (or even faster), making the electronic shutter truly usable.
  • Now I'll have to try it tomorrow in the pool.
  • Funny - but the guy is swimming circles in the wrong direction.  A longer right arm should make him circle to the left.  This gives away the commercial as a fake (otherwise it was very convincing ;-)
  • The bundle price with the 14-140mm lens is very, very attractive. Too bad I already have the 14-140mm, which is excellent, but for those that don't - this combo would save you $300

  • I think the list so far is a bit all over the place.  Panasonic should hone in and continue to make a discreet rangefinder style cam - which is the main objective with eh GX-8.  Otherwise, if you ...
  • Hi Paul - not crazy at all, that makes total sense.  I would be shooting at least FF if I was into portraits.  I used to have a Hasselblad film camera - and oh man, what a difference medium format ...
  • Just to clarify - you're spot on regarding the quality of the Nocticron.  I'm under no illusions that the other lenses compare.  In fact it's a shame they don't match the Nocticron wide open, at ...
  • Well I'm glad it's being delayed.  I love my GX7 - but suspect I'll fall for the GX8, and dispense with monies I could have used for lenses.  I'm waiting for the 42.5 1.2 to fall bellow a grand, ...
  • I'm surprised by that - the 25mm 1.4 is generally acknowledged as having excellent contrast, and mine certainly does.  Also - and I'll probably get blasted for this - but I've found that Panasonic ...
  • As I started to ponder the merits of the Sony FE system - I just looked at the review of the 35mm 1.4 on slrgear - and thought it was pretty disappointing, especially for a lens that size.  I ...
  • Picasso once said something along the lines that he spent the early part of his life learning how to paint - and the rest trying to unlearn what he learned. I think the central composition works ...
  • Thanks for the link.  Great test actually.  However, the text focused just on sharpness, and I am a bit alarmed to see such CA at 1.7 in the center for the new lens.  It disappears in the 2.8 ...
  • Do you have sale numbers on Panny vs. Oly lenses?  I do have the same observation that Panny isn't as popular, hand have seen the overall sales / market share (with Panny declining, Oly ...

    Strange, I'm lusting after the GM5. I find the Pansonic GM and GX series better looking from a design perspective than the OM-D products. However, the X-T1 beats them all for sure.

    I'm curious if that will be the GX8

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview

    It does when you want to shoot ultra wide angles, fish eyes, macros, or telephoto distances. Or if you want a really sharp lens corner to corner, or perhaps even shallower depth of field. I...

  • I had the screen lock up at least 2 but I think 3 times during the 1 year I had the camera.  The battery out / in trick fixed it each time.  At least once it locked when I tried shutting it off ...
