On article Gear of the Year 2018 - Carey's choice: Panasonic GX9 (297 comments in total)

As strictly a Fuji x user and heavy user of the x100f and x100v amongst others, I decided to purchase this camera and what a gem. The gx 9 is a street shooters dream. Responsive and often used with a tiny Olympus 45mm f1.8 or 25.f1.8 or tiny Panasonic 14-42 mk ii and the results to me are stunning. Pair the camera with a small 75 f2.5 from Voigtlander and you have a great 150mm equiv lens with brilliant results. This is a camera you want to take everywhere and with the x100v around my neck and the gx 9 with the Olympus 45mm f1.9 with a small hand strap in my bag for reach I am good to go on the street. The best camera is the one you love to use

I have three different Billingham, three different sizes and styles. I use them all and they cannot be Beat and one ONA Bowery, which I. also love. Have taken them everywhere for street to events, durable, stylish, and very rugged, if you have good equipment protect it well in all weather and have easy quick access to yout camera and lenses. The Billingham compact stowaway with the Fuji x100v ion the street in a great small setup for example. Cheers

Terrible photography. Both the theme and photos seem fake imho. Liberal virtue signaling

I love this lens. As a long tern Leica film and digital user and now use this on my Fuji xt-1, xt-20, and xe-4. I am very impressed at f1.2
Coupled with the xt-1 and shooting black and white the images are magical.
F1.2 bw portraits on the xt-1 blew away my expectations for the character of this lens
A no brainer

I am an avid Fuji user and returned this camera after one day. Terribly disappointed.
Maybe it was my copy. Why did I return it? It felt quite a bit cheaper than my Fuji x100v, the battery door was very hard to open, focus peaking was not working properly which I have used from my xt-1 through Fuji x100v impeccable, images were flat even my Fuji xt 20 were much better. Did a blind test from someone who looks critically at these things and rated the xe-4 poorest output. I hope others have better success. Also, the 27mm mk11 lens was a little noisier than the first lens. Interesting, but after using it could not wait to send it back.

Corot2: Great camera. My favorite of all time. Sad how Seattle has been destroyed. As a native who left, very sad. Soon Joe can go home

HI Barney

Yes, if you live there I am sure what you see has happened to this once great city.
Very sad, hopefully it will come back.

I am an owner of the ME 240 which Iove although it irequireds a slower and methodical stule of photography. Personally, I was not impressed by t he sample gallery. I will stick with my Fuji x100v on the street shooting in Acros and use the extra money with some left over when Fuji hopefully releases the Fuji x100v monochrome

Corot2: My Panasonic Gx1 took some great pictures from it sold it for so little would have kept it. I least hopefully I learned a lesson, in 2017 purchase the Fuji x100f and took around 20000 photos great sentimentality and some photos I am quite happy with. In March, I purchased the Fuji x100v but I kept the x100f. The camera has my personality since I bought it new and it went through quite a bit with me, also will be happy to use it as a backup still a great camera, I only like to buy new because IMHO the camera will have my fingerprint and a past with me. You only live once, this life is temporary, so what not enjoy and not worry about the money. I lost two parents since 2015. None of us not we will depart this world

Sorry to hear. Taking pictures to me has a spiritual component. Enjoy your picture taking

I used my x100f with evf. But I recently switched to ovf with my Fuji x100v
Absolutely prefer ovf, clearer scene, feel closer to what I am shooting
It is really amazing the ovf experience in the Fuji x100v

Corot2: Prefer to buy voightlander for difference in price. Had a 7 artisans f1.2 35mm lens returned it did not like at all. All third party lenses for my Fuji xt 20 will be voightlander
I bought the 75mm f2.5 voightlander very small compact stunning images on sale now for 599 and has been discontinued, for the small difference in price a much better product which I bought at cameraquest

Thank you good info. Last lens bought from cameraquest very good to deal with

I understand. That is what is great all lenses have their own properties which appeal differently to everyone. Only gave this as an option, since the micro contrast of this voightlander and overall rendering are quite amazing. Better than my older Leica lenses which I sold after using this. You really get a lot of bang for the buck. When I used the 7artisans f1.2 35mm it had a very smudged look on my Fuji x and even my inexpensive 40 dollar minolta was much superior in my eyes. But some people swear by Sony cameras and hate Fuji for example and vice - a - versa but I always appreciate personally getting suggestions from others. Thank you very much for your thoughts

One camera one lens Fuji x100f with its fixed 23mm f2 can cover everything I need to do and often on vacation I left my other equipment at home or in the hotel
This lens does it all
