  • Wow... ...now THAT would be Awesome !!! Doc
  • ...but would like to see Panasonic redo the 100-300 into a (similarly pro-level 12-35 / 35-100) Weather-Sealed 100-300 F4 Constant with improved AF Speed and Optics. It would probably be larger... ???
  • What is a 2x2 switch?
  • No. Already have GH2 GH4 12-35 35-100 100-300... So for us:  7-14 and 20 GX7 or Replacement in Future... But, to each their own for sure... So, no worries... Doc
  • Replied in Dumb question
    Tradeoff Hugh... Olympus and Panasonic are both "leaning forward into the wind" on this... ...but with smaller lenses, bulk, etc. M43 has reached a plateau for the moment - making your decisions ...
  • Replied in Zoom or Prime
    Speed, size, acuity, and most important - singularly applied use. Primes outdo Zooms in general... For instance, on a smaller body a prime is a joy when going for a specific use - like street ...
  • Truly said.  That comparison is a weight-wash - while the FZ1000 gets out farther, the GH4 can be cropped... ...iZoom, etc. aside. We are "learning" birding - so our experience is still limited. ...
  • Really good run-down on stabilization Guy. My wife and I tried Power OIS on a 35-100 then Mega OIS on a 100-300 as opposed to the GX7's built-in IBIS in a store yesterday - and we both felt the ...
  • Same thing happened to my wife and I yesterday Bob - although we elected to wait for a GX7 replacement. We tried our lenses (12-35, 35-100, 100-300) on a black GX7 in a store... ...were there to ...
  • I second that - although with very limited experience.  My wife and I took our 35-100 and 100-300 into a store yesterday and put them on a GX7.  The 35-100 felt completly fine - the weight and ...
  • Ha!  She likes your humor Jim.  And, seems set on a second Gh4 when possible.  She certainly liked the GX7 - wants to wait on a replacement - and didn't really get all that excited by an FZ1000 - ...
  • Perhaps at some point we may have some duplicates.  Our lens "strategy" was to sell a few m43's lenses, get the three we have now, and go from there.  We both use the 12-35 the most... ...the ...
  • I'm wondering if that might eventually happen to us too.  It would be far cheaper, simpler, easier... ...but right now I think my wife is not ready for that "radical" a change... ...in her mind. Th ...
  • Ah yes, I had not thought of the difference in IBIS between the FZ1000 and the GX7... ...yep, will have to wait and see what happens.  We were both impressed by the GX7 though.  Nice camera. Yep, ...
  • We're "working" on this Phil. My wife loves her GH4, lenses and accessories - is not put off by changing lenses - and is less open to a bridge camera. However, I'm still chewing on pairing an ...
  • 2xGH4's, wait for GX7 and FZ1000 replacements... So, okay, thanks for all inputs. Marriage is a wonderful thing... Doc

    2xGH4's, wait for GX7 and FZ1000 replacements... So, okay, thanks for all inputs. Marriage is a wonderful thing... ;-) Doc
  • Jim: We just got back from PhotoCraft in Burke, VA where we compared an FZ1000 to a GX7 - and also saw the GM5. My wife really took to the GX7 and the knowledgeable salesperson told us there would ...
  • Thanks Jim... ...and I appreciate your many balanced responses to so many over the years. My wife is reading the responses to our threads here and on the Panny Compact Camera Forum - and is already ...
  • Thanks cainn24, Yep, a tough choice - and that choice may end up being my wife's.  The GH4 is hers and our direction may all boil down to what she wants again.  As for me, I'm good with anything ...
