  • Replied in Why upgrade?
    I have the latest FW and it is a totally different camera from the one I bought 21/2 years ago. Its just I like the speed of my GX7, and as much as I like the output of the X100, there is room for ...
  • Thank you all for you comments, it really does appear it's too close to call, so at the end of the day, it's all down to how deep your pockets are, and which "extras" you personally like. The one ...
  • Created discussions Time to upgrade x100
    Being of limited funds and patient, in 40 years of photography, I have not yet bought a new camera. I give it a couple of years for the latest model to come out and picked the older one up at a ...
  • Created discussions GX7 and annoying "DISP" button
    I am growing to like my GX7 very much, but the poor placement of the DISP button which I continuously knock I think with the joint of my thumb is really annoying me. It wouldn't be so bad if it ...
  • Don't like the "Q" menu system, the one on my oly em5 was much better, more comprehensive and much easier to use. Don't like not being able to use HDR in raw, or flash with electronic shutter. ...
  • Just swapped my silver EM5 for a black GX7. I don't like the look of my silver 45mm on it, would prefer a black one. Anyone out there with a black that would prefer silver? It's boxed like new, ...
  • I can come up with reasons for having it on both, hence my question if anyone else has gone one way or the other and has regrets? It's not something you can decide in the shop, but they want your ...
  • Created discussions TLC-X100 or Prime lens
    I love both my Fuji X100 and Panny GX7, but having made the decision to "go prime" - need to fill the 50mm equiv gap. Options are TLC-X100 for my old Fuji X100 or Panny Leica 25mm for my GX7. The ...
  • Some lovely images, nice to know what can be achieved with practice. Just swapped the EM5 for a GX7 so cant go there, but as you say the 45mm is a little cracker with the option of cropping, much ...
  • Lovely shot, well done. You are right about manual 135's on Ebay, that would be a great start, and also find some darker skies too, only 10 miles north of London and always a glow in the southern ...
  • Thanks Michael, that really does give us limitations, 150 on M4/3 gives us 2 seconds! Could grab a couple of stops if I can find an old 135mm f3.5 - and push to ISO 6400 and get rid of of some of ...
  • Did you use a tracker for the Orion image, you have a 30 second exposure and no streaking?
  • Many thanks Michael, not sure how I got to this forum, but your help gratefully appreciated. Maybe an old "third party lens" with a wider aperture may be a good place to start so off to EBay. Cheers ...
  • Created discussions Can I better the Pleiades?
    I am not unhappy with the best image I got last night, but am interested to know how it could be improved. Anything over 5 seconds exposure caused the stars to "streak" due to rotation of the earth ...

  • Do you miss no having manual focus?
  • I have both the Olympus X100 and the Fujifilm EM-5! And perhaps not enough sleep reading the manual of my new Nikon GX7! :-) Happy new year!
  • Brilliant - my AF on touch screen off now and those horrible tabs too. As I bought my GX7 used with no manual in the box, reading the 380 page download on-line is really difficult when you don't ...
  • Useful, pity it's not an option as it is in my EM-5. One for the next firmware update.
  • After only a week with the GX7 with the Panny 14mm, I have come to the same conclusion and the X100 has to go. I was sort of hoping I would not be happy which would give me an excuse to upgrade to ...
