  • Replied in Moire
    It's moire patterns from the fabric, an artifact due to the Bayer color filter array. It's not unique to the GX7. http://www.ishootshows.com/2012/04/09/understanding-moire-patterns-in-digital-photo ...
  • It probably doesn't matter if you are shooting your kids soccer game. But if I was using it with a GH3 or GH4 for more serious or paid work, it would bother me a lot.
  • And then after you buy one of those cheaper bags, you can wax it for the 'Domke' rugged wear look- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcgx6o-G7kw
  • Maybe a more ideal trio would be the 12/25/45, or 14/25/45 for a lower price trio. But that just depends on your preferences. I would recommend you buy it now just to try the 25mm lens, it sounds ...
  • There's no best, as ultimately beauty is in the mind of the beholder. But I will say that I almost always turn down noise reduction all the way on every camera I've owned, and do the same with ...
  • Replied in Thanks-
    Thanks for that info, it's exactly what I was looking for! That's too bad, if it's too tolerant then it's not much more different than judging from a non-magnified screen I guess. I would doubt ...
  • If you are still around Walter (or anyone else using the Gfoto adapter)- Is the focus confirmation indicator a useful tool for focusing without magnification? I thought it might be good for candid ...
  • Replied in Realistically-
    I recommend you go to imaging-resource.com and compare sample videos of the cameras you currently have, with the various Panasonic models, so you can evaluate with your own eyes. Almost all of ...
  • Fortunately, I think people shots for the most part are not going to display visible electronic shutter artifacts regardless of motion- that is, there is distortion but it's simply not noticeable. ...
  • PM sent (earlier today) on the 30mm f/2 lens!
  • I think the entire comparison can be boiled down to- LX100 is cheaper than GX7 + 12-35mm lens combo (or 12-32 if size is more important to you than aperture.) But we can't really evaluate it until...

  • Yeah, I think the entire comparison can be boiled down to- LX100 is cheaper than GX7 + 12-35mm lens combo (or 12-32 if size is more important to you than aperture.) But we can't really evaluate it...

  • With the faster M43 lenses on relatively current M43 bodies, I find that SAF is fast enough that you get plenty of keepers even with moving subjects. You just need to have some awareness of ...
  • I am considering the same exact combo, switching from mirrorless and comparing the same fast primes. A fast normal prime is really a big 'feature' for me, the Nikon 35mm looks great for the money. ...
  • Replied in PM sent-
    PM sent- would love to buy!
  • It's going to be somewhat different for everyone, but some big differences that come to mind- 1. Autofocus speed- Micro 4/3 has a significant edge on most all Fuji cameras. The edge is even greater ...
  • Replied in AF
    You're very polite, but in fact I HADN'T really thought about DOF with Nikon 1. :-D The 10mm pancake does have a big advantage there. There are other pancakes with very fast AF, but they are all ...
  • Ultimately I guess it's all relative, I think the EOS-M and 22mm together make for a PARTICULARLY slow combo. Another poster posted videos showing AF of EOS-M with the Canon 55-250mm EF-S STM lens, ...
  • Replied in AF
    Thanks for those observations, especially regarding AF. It's hard to believe that Canon released the 22mm pancake with such slow AF, so slow that many of their EF lenses (even without STM) ...
  • Replied in Sounds good-
    Great- I don't really like basic kit zooms, though they can come in handy at times. So I'll just go for a single EF-S 18-55 to do double duty. Thanks!
