  • I'd think about it if it had a manual zoom. Motorized zooms just don't work for me.

  • I picked up a GR a couple of weeks ago (B&H threw in a free GV-1 viewfinder) and had a chance to play around with it here in New York. It's taken a little work to customize it to how I want to ...
  • You could buy the GR from B&H. They are throwing in the Ricoh GV-1 viewfinder for free. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/965424-REG/ricoh_175743_gr_digital_camera.html
  • I own both the GR and the LX100. I find it a nice tag team. GR is my fast, ultra compact hip shooter for me here in NYC. LX100, with its zoom and EVF, is better for landscapes, situations you have ...
  • I wish this camera did with the Olympus E-M5 does by only activating the image stabilizer upon a half-press of the shutter button. Would seem this saves battery life.
  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview

    There are plenty of cases where that's not possible... not to mention the perspective changes as well. A wide angle held close to the subject doesn't look the same as a telephoto lens shot from...

    mcshan:
    Now try to change the focal length on the 15 or 20mm. Not going to happen. It's all a matter of compromise. LX100 offers compact size, plus zoom and better light gathering than GM5+kit...

  • I have an LX100. Leica version is exact same lens, so it'll have the same issue. I'm trying to learn to like the aesthetic.
  • Here's a little bit of my bi-coastal journey with the LX100. It's been too cold in NYC for me to get out shooting as much as I'd like.
  • Seems pointless to own an m43 body and a few cheap primes. An LX100 could give you IQ on par with a decent prime, shoot from 24mm to 75mm and still be faster at the wide end and on par on the long ...
  • Replied in
    Another vote for the Panaleica. I sold off a few lenses and use my new LX100 for most general photography, but I kept a 25mm with my EM-5 because of its low-light ability and the IQ. Its rendering ...
  • Madness. Learn to love your new LX100/109. Better and smaller with a nice set of manual controls to keep things fun. I've had a few weeks to shoot mine around LA and NYC and it does most of what I ...
  • Understand ISO200 is the base, but when I shoot street, I like to lock in my shutter and aperture (usually at f/5.6 1/250 to set hyperfocal and have a good shutter speed for action) while letting ...
  • +1 for default zoom on start-up
  • Also, I noticed auto ISO does will not go lower than ISO200 even when extended ISO is enabled. That should be changed.
  • * Auto hyperfocus set via assignable function button * Display current focal length in EVF/LCD * Minimum shutter speed in auto ISO * Eliminate the 70mm focal length in step zoom
  • What makes this camera interesting is the first place is the fast zoom in a package the size of a pancake prime. If that's not a selling point for someone, they shouldn't be looking at this class...
