  • I cannot compare with the first version, as I am unfamiliar with it. But my copy of 100-300 II has nice zoom action that I have no complaints with. It's not too stiff as to resist any attempts to ...
  • That is my impression as well. I have a feeling I can trust it when it comes to focusing. It will focus where I place the AF point. And I was happy to discover that focusing in low-light is better ...
  • I'd look into Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 if I were you. A bit wider, but should still be good for general indoor shooting. Compatible with Panasonic's wide angle converter that would turn it into 11mm ...
  • How so? Who's this for then? More likely the fact that Panasonic's professional broadcasting and video production equipment is handled by different division than the consumer camera division and ...
  • Doesn't matter one bit if they cannot convince people to buy them. Not to mention the few head-scrathers. For example, why does Panasonic not make lenses dedicated for serious video work? They seem ...
  • Unless you are shooting RAW, you will not be able to get rid of aggressive noise reduction. (1) For extreme conditions like that, you have no choice but to shoot RAW.
  • If you have either Live View Boost or Simulated OVF enabled, turn them off.
  • Looks like I can definitely say goodbye to any chance of Panasonic coming up with GM7 :-( However, whether this is bad news or good news remains to be seen. As long as they do not drop out of the ...
  • Is that circular or diagonal on your Canon or something in between? Am I right assuming the image circle does not cover whole sensor? Well, the Samyang/Rokinon 7.5mm is an excellent lens (at least ...
  • The whole point is that it would not be a camera for event photography. Look at Sony's FE lineup. Three cameras, three different sensors. Each excelling at something different. You will probably ...
  • Just to be clear. For me, LX legacy means features for advanced, "serious" users. Things like proper flash or ability to take filters and/or some other accessories (EVF/OVF, etc.) and at least some...

  • Wish we had a similar clearance sale in EU. I would happily pick up 150mm for half the price. Alas, Olympus does not even list it in their shop, although Amazon carries it (at full retail price of ...
  • The new 12-60 is versatile, I would say. And when bought in kit with GH5 is reasonably priced.
  • Sure, after all, it has a larger sensor and is a much newer camera. But it has none of the things that made previous LX cameras so special. It's just yet another "me too" RX100 clone.

    At least...

  • My guess is that it's to provide better overall high ISO performance. Like for example the Nikon D810A has higher base ISO than D810, as it is made for astrophotography. So Nikon optimized it for ...
  • And what does that have to do with the new crop of MF mirrorless cameras? I guess it does not matter. It's still an excellent example of the nonsense I was pointing to in the first place. Thank you ...
  • How about adapted lenses? You can use lenses with Sony A mount using original Sony adapter. That should give you native level performance, I would guess (probably worth asking on Sony forum here). ...
  • Had LX-5, great little camera. I used this threaded lens barrel thingy to mount "macro conversion lenses" on it. That was my introduction to macro photography. Well, technically it was not real...

  • Well, it's not easy to handle such long focal lengths. You have to watch your shutter speed. Get the feel for IS. Preferably improve your shooting technique while you're at it. It takes some ...
  • Yeah, same old song. It really only applies to people measuring the usefulness of their equipment and quality of their results with equivalence. Which in real world does not really tell you all ...
