  • Replied in Key points here
    I think we have a few extreme views (responses ) here Key point of the article is that MFT is good enough for most people for 90% of what they shoot The iPhone is small and light and has good IQ; ...
  • A sensible article to read http://delightphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/1/full-frame---aps-c---43-which-format-to-choose Cheers ;-)
  • I'm surprised you can't adjust the AF point by just playing with the arrows I tried mine and it's smack right in the center For street I set AF to multi point for fast focusing; this sometimes has ...
  • Replied in Harder
    Based on my experience, shooting wildlife and using long telephotos usually require the use of an EVF/OVF for targeted, precise focusing, and composition As the GM1 lacks an EVF, it'd be hard to ...
  • The GM1 AF is quite fast and fast enough for all intents and purposes If the GF7 AF is the same or better then it's good enough Nothing to worry or pull hair about Cheers,
  • Replied in I have both
    for EP5 + VF4 : Better looks / build Can remove EVF when not needed 1/8000 speed 5-axis (even though 3-axis would work fine) Much better EVF (key differentiator IMHO) Better control with rear lever ...
  • Replied in Thanks Marty
    For the comparo sheet Just realized that the GM5 sports a different LCD than the GM1 Looks like  it is of 16:9 format and has less resolution Not sure what it looks like in real life ( I handled it ...
  • Replied in Not too shabby
    For a small camera, the GM1 is quite well built Once you hold it in your hand you can feel the dense compact quality feel The top buttons are all metal and are precisely machined, including the top ...
  • Replied in complement?
    I guess you meant complement? The LX100 comes to mind but it's not quite pocketable (the slow electronic zoom may turn you off) The GM1 + 12-32 or 20mm is more deep pocket pocketable (this is my go ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Especially with street photography I just came back from a 2-week trip to Vietnam and I 've learned from my previous trips not to carry too many lenses I carried 2 cameras: the EM10 + 35-100mm f2.8 ...
  • First Panny makes the GM1 in the smallest form factor possible, the size was limited by the 3" LCD screen Then folks clamored for an EVF which the GM1 was lacking-> the GM5 was born but due to the ...
  • This should fit fine http://www.ebay.com/itm/OLYMPUS-OM-D-E-M10-BODY-14-42MM-LENS-NEOPRENE-CAMERA-BODY-CASE-COVER-POUCH-BAG-/171294913303?pt=US_Camera_Cases_Bags&hash=item27e1f8f317 I have a ...
  • Replied in Sort of no
    I have the GM1 I find the LX100 EVF to be tunnel like and the colors not accurate; the rainbow effect is also annoying (sold it after  2 weeks) I bet the GM5 EVF is no better than the LX100's So I ...
  • Replied in EM1 or A7ii
    A7 for resolution, better noise at high ISO, a bit more DR EM1 for better ergo , lenses, system overall, portability, price take your pick Cheers,
  • At first glance it looks like a Pentax Q which to me is one of the ugliest camera ever designed The hump really throws off the otherwise fine line of the GM like brick design If it doesn't house an ...
  • Since the EM5, all MFT gear is having the same /similar sensor thus same DR They're all good or good enough No need to study very hard over miniscule differences if any (especially in real life ...
  • you pay twice the price of the GM1 just to get the tiny EVF? Is it worth it? people 've asked? Besides the colors are not optimal, red on black or all black The only silver (which I think is more ...
  • Ditto here Prefer the tilt screen It's sturdier and less obtrusive It protrudes less and takes up less space But the swivel screen is NOT a show stopper either Cheers,
  • For me the 17mm is not wide enough I have to have the zoom start at 12mm I don't mind the zoom being short in the long end for one can always crop but one cannot add width Ideally the lens of my ...
  • Replied in GM1
    If price is not an issue then I'd suggest the GM5 but if value is important, the GM1 can be had for less than half The silent shutter mode on the GM1 is great for street It only lacks an EVF which ...
