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!

"how quickly does the viewfinder turn on when you raise the camera to your eye?"

I did it, and I could not see the curtain passing by. You guys are are probably right... legacy lenses using the E shutter and 10-bit color.

Sorry!!!! I was wrong! I just tried different legacy lenses and yes the the "shutter type" changed to AUTO. But below 1/500 shutter speed is still first curtain type!

Well.. the only thing I can say about that the GM5 has a separate setting EFC this is limits the shutter speed to 1/500 (first curtain shutter.) I using this setting in A mode! basically having full auto exp. control with legacy lens on! I don't think GM1 has this option. GM1 has Auto or ESHTR only.

where are you getting this information from? Up to 1/500 shutter is a first curtain shutter (EFC) and 12-bit color. EFC is available in S, A, and M mode. By the way Im experimenting with old Leitz Elmar-C. 90mm, great feature of GM5's auto ISO and focus peak in manual mode! But legacy lenses can be used just fine in A mode also!

yes..its possible to set the LCD off and only LVF on in the "eye sensor" menu. Unfortunatelly only 1 minute is the lowest setting for auto switch off. Shutter button is to reactivate. The max. magnification is 6X and works with any legacy lenses. "Shoot without lens" most be on!
