In the chook house

In Australia all hens are called "Chooks" - migrants get used to this quite quickly.

The main issue with Panasonic products recently is that if their marketing in badly directed then they might deduce that there is not enough M4/3 people interested in their product and give up.

The G100 is cheap, capable, and fun to use. A highly specified camera in the form of the G9II can be bought for a lot more money.

On the other hand the G100 is quite capable even without any stabilisation (lens/body) but if used with stabilised lenses it is rock steady.

Likewise the digital stabilisation in conjunction with stabilised lenses seems to work fine from a simple test I made - but I don't do video as a rule.

But in reality in the camera hen-house the chickens pick on the weakest point in their neighbour and peck at it. A fact of camera-discussion life. No IBIS? Give the little sod a peck ....

Just like the GM5 - every M4/3 user of a brute sized camera body should also have a G100 tucked in a corner of the bag for fun-shots and the possibility of being actually surprised at just how well it images with a great lens attached.
