  • So - I'll go against the norm here, and say it's one of the better recent cameras Panny has built (although not perfect), and one of the best travel cameras out there. I have a long history in ...
  • Wow - blast from the past.  I started digital with the E-410, then E-420 (and kept going).  Loved the form factor, and really liked those cameras.  Given your interest in a kit lens starting at ...
  • Here here - fully agree. I've really started to get frustrated with the intermingling of photo and video features / merits. The video features used to be just a section, but you now see features...

  • Replied in Yes, 20mm
    Yes, I was going to say the 7-14mm.  I've since sold it (switching to the 8-18mm), but the 7-14mm was a stellar lens that was small in size / weight.
  • Wow - lot of people dismiss the travel photographer here.  There's a significant difference between 18 and 25mm.  An 8-25mm can serve as the main walkaround lens for travelling, for those who ...
  • Replied in Mine is fine
    Just to clarify - this wasn't a minor issue - you would definitely know that it's faulty from the very first time looking through it.  I just wanted to alert to people that if they get a G100 ...
  • Replied in It was faulty!
    Went to Best Buy tried the demo unit - no issues with EVF. Since the store I purchased it from online ran out of them, I bought a kit from Best Buy, and again no issues. Will be returning the ...
  • Vertigo is a good way to describe it, but I never had this on GX7, GX8, nor when I tried the G9 in stores.  The impression here is that Panasonic tried to cram in a larger EVF into the smallest ...
  • I adjusted the diopter for the image.  My glasses are around +2 so it's neither slight nor extreme adjustment.  I don't like using glasses with the viewfinder, as it lets too much light in around ...
  • Created discussion thread Faulty G100 EVF
    I just received my new G100, and really like it except for the EVF.  There were comments by others that the optics for the EVF are not that great. Well, mine are pretty terrible. I have to ...
  • It is indeed on sale - went ahead and ordered one, with the tripod.
  • It took me 2 tries with the PL12-60 and 2 tries with the 8-18 to get very good copies of both.  My first 8-18, which I pre-ordered (hence early manufactured copy) was terrible.  After that I ...
  • Replied in Update
    I still have the GF5 - which I think is very similar.  I liked how it was a low key camera, also very small and easy to pocket.  Never used it again after I got the GM5 ...
  • Replied in GF1 in 2021 ?
    Or Fuji ... indeed aps-c would be a better fit for legacy lenses, and Fuji's film simulations would be fun to try (note that I've never used Fuji - but having tried legacy lenses on m4/3, I ...
  • Except that the GH4 is huge compared to the G100.  I'm really curious about the upcoming GH6 though.  I've not justified going from my GX8 to either GH5 or G9, but if the rumors about a new ...
  • I think they have a great opportunity.  All this doom and gloom around m4/3 is tied to obsession with full frame mirrorless.  I suspect aps-c competition from Sony, Canon, Nikon will drop away.  ...
  • An additional burden for JIP - is that transition from Olympus to JIP is spooking customers, along with concerns about Panasonic's commitment to m4/3.  The uncertainty is going to have existing ...
  • Usually there are hong kong sourced items on eBay -but none at that price ...
  • I'm not arguing against the rationale for the GX7 / GX9 - I had the GX7 and really liked it's form factor.  And if it's possible to fit the best IBIS, and high end EVF into a size like that, all ...
  • I continue to be perplexed by both Olympus and Panasonic of not continuing the GX8 and Pen-F (at least to date).  It's not to say that the other larger cams (video orientation, wildlife, etc.) ...
