Re: Upgrading my GX1- Is GX85 enough for indoor sports?

I’m in the middle of this self discussion as well. I think m43 is very capable indoors.  If you like the system, it’s about the glass (and that goes for all formats) for indoors.  The 42.5 1.7 is going to be my first pickup for basketball.  I think the Panasonic 2.8 zooms are great place to look as well, but more light in is better, always.  Someone posted on this forum figure skating shots taken with GX85 and the Olympus 40-150 2.8. They looked as good as any shots you’ll see in that environment.

I’ve jumped formats too many times at this point.  I come back to the same two all the time m43 and Fujifilm.  You really need to put the time in with any system and learn it for your application.  Low light, indoors and  movement doesn’t have a magic bullet.

Hope that helped.
