  • Hi Trevor, I had a quick look at your Seville photos - you are in another league ... light, composition, coutours ... I'll keep trying, which is maybe what it's all about :) Peter
  • when is it expected that the annoucement will be made ? in the next few days ... ? :)
  • Geoff was a real character, always good to read, and sharp on photography. I'm sure he was much more than that, to ... My condoleances to his family and friends. Peter
  • Hi Geoff, How's the G80/85 going ? I'm close to getting one, to move ahead from my G6 ... do you recommend it ? Hope all is well on the other side :)
  • Thanks, Trevor ... I'll handle it and I think, like you, that we don't need all the buttons anyway to get good pictures and enjoy photography :)
  • Hi Trevor, Dave, Caterpillar et al, For the G80/85settings : TOP: - front dial: I suppose this is the easiest position from which to change the (aperture ...) values (as standard) ? - rear dial : I ...
  • ... how do you choose to configure the wheels, dials & buttons of the G80/85, for best comfort/performance ? That will be the first thing I'll want to do when I get it, and getting your best ideas ...
  • Thanks for the advice, Albert ... I was sort of expecting this kind of reply: I shall get out the Manual this weekend and have another go ... Cheers, Peter
  • One other question re the G80/85: is it easy to send a photo to an iPhone or Android ? Even when out trekking in the country/mountains, it's surprising how much network (not all the time ...) can ...
  • Thanks for your remarks, Mingjai ...: I certainly know the Pannys are not lookers, more like street sleepers ! But that doesn't bother me in the slightest.
  • Hi Aberaeron, You still like the G6 (best?) which I have, and like as well ... but did get theG7, but not the G80: I guess having the G7 and the GX80, it's difficult to justify getting a G80 as well :)
  • Hi all ... I see the G80/85 has quite a following,  and I wasn't - honestly, even on this µ4/3 forum - expecting your views to be as strongly positive  : Panny must be happy guys ! Thanks ...
  • Agree - my plate holds the bottom of the camera above the solar plexus - very rarely any movement
  • Thanks to all of you for your help - all v positive ... Trevor: what makes you the "fanboy" for the G85 vs G6 ? Is it what the others say ? Thinking about it last night, the other step up from the ...
  • Nope: I prefer the way the Panasonics handle vs the Olympuses, and there's a lot of discussion about the Oly's menu system, so, between the 2, I prefer to stick the Panasonic ...
  • Created discussion thread G6 vs G85/G80 ?
    Hi all, I have a G6 since end 2014 and am very happy with it: EVF, 14-140 lens (I know, I don't use several lenses: this one does everything for me, and the combo is still lighter than an FZ1000), ...
  • Hi Mikity, I have read your view that a chest pad might look funny and have seen that YT review that laughs it out ... I have to say I don't agree: I've walked several weeks over several years and ...
  • Thanks, Nigel. I'll get back to you with some questions later on the Appenines (maybe January, usually when we get into the more detailed planning before booking, of the walk). I take note of the ...
  • Thanks for the advice on the Appenines - will check it all out ... !
  • Hi NCV, I have a Panasonic G6 with a 14-140 mkII and am happy with it. No lens-changing ... We walk once a year for a week in a group of 7-8, with mid-sized packs and I carry the camera fixed by ...
