GodSpeaks: I think they missed the boat here. Tenba says these are for mirrorless cameras. So what are the primary traits of mirrorless? Small and light. Yet these bags are designed to carry a camera and multiple lenses, tripods and large tablets. None of which meets the small and light criteria.

How about a smaller bag(s) that could carry a mirrorless camera with lens attached and one additional lens. No tripods or tablets. In other words, keep it small and light. A switch 4 or 5 pehaps?

I already have too many bags that can carry multiple cameras/lenses that I no longer use because they are too big and cumbersome.

Exactly! Thanks!

To many of the same type of hype!
I love to see smaller camera bags with holster type action, where you can slide in your camera with a super-zoom without detach the lens. Mirror-less is more vulnerable for lens change than DSLR’s. Than maybe the bag dimensions could rather extend vertically, of course than would look less like a purse too! :-))

scrup: I see a lot of complaints about it not being released in the US.
Guess its mostly old folks who don't know how to use the internet and order from Ebay or don't trust that the camera will last for more than a year and somehow need a local warranty.

Just joking! Check my gears! :-))))

lacix: I don't really understand the GM5 vs. RX100 III comparison based on pocketability, I had/have both. When I owned the RX100 II yes, I could put it in my jeans pocket, but it was very heavy tight and uncomfortable. Some of my jackets have bigger pockets, but than now I can put my GM5 w. kit in it that too. So? Call it pocketable? C’mon! What kind of clothing you guys generally wearing? “Sony fit?”:-)))
I have a nice set, the GM5 with 14-140mm (28-280mm) lens on it, in a small “case logic” bag. Great versatile combo, only 476g (1.05lb)! It’s no other kits comes close to that, comparing/including size, weight, IQ or versatility!

Higher ISO sensor scores of GM5 makes up the difference of the faster lens!

Slow focusing and not very effective RX100 stabilizer makes it even worst! I used it and I know it!
You are full of your self! Yes?

I don't really need to look for reference, because I used both (OK I had the RX100 II) camera! I just comparing the thousands of images created my self! Yes the RX100 III have faster lens.
In low light? You kidding me!
Check the RAW ISO 6400 The GM5 is better!

No! I mean with the kit 12-32 lens is "pocketable" not much less than the RX100

In reply to:

jadmaister2: I wonder if the layout of DPReviews comments section needs some thought.
It's quite cramped, and reading through this thread it appears that either:
No-one bothers to read previous posts, because there is endless repetition, or:
DPR has a very high proportion of Trolls per poster.
It's such a shame that we, who apparently share photography as a passion, can evince such bitterness over an innocent fault from a manufacturer.
Of course we all wish this hadn't happened for goodness sake, but the D750 is still a tool that will take superb pictures.
I wonder if the posters here can say the same?

"It's such a shame that we, who apparently share photography as a passion, can evince such bitterness over an innocent fault from a manufacturer."
Sounds very nice indeed! Bitterness? NO!
...but when DP puts out a list of winning products of there own and require from you to choose the best from the list...is far from being “passionate” or “innocent”! More like manipulative!
Why can I not choose my own passionately loved brand, DP?

Andy C Knight: Hi, I have a couple of questions on the GM5, that I was unable to find in the User Manual...

1. Is it possible to turn off the LCD and set the EVF to only turn on, when you put your eye to the camera? (I'm thinking of maximising the limited battery life!)

2. Can you MF with (10x?) magnification on the LCD/EVF with a legacy (i.e. non cpu) lens attached?

Many Thanks

Andy.

:-))))) the same here!
