On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9: What you need to know (211 comments in total)

I am confused. After reading all the Panasonic reviews on DPreview and the comments below, I have come to the conclusion that if you take any combination of the letters G and X, and the numbers 0, 5, 8 and 9, depending on whether you're in N. America or elsewhere, you might or might not get to the camera you're looking for. (I have a GX-85 and I'm very pleased with it).

I take a GX85 with a kit 12-32 when traveling and it fits in my photo vest pocket. A 14-40 fits in the other pocket. I also take a dSLR with a long lens lens for birding, but I suppose that's another story. But what I was alluding to is that the airlines keep threatening to ban any electrical device larger than a smartphone from all hand luggage, and that includes all cameras. That already applied on some flights. They are also threatening to ban all spare Li ion batteries on planes, period.

None of this is relevant if you are not allowed to take your gear on the flight, or if you are forced to take it in your checked baggage and that gets lost.

Not one of these comments has mentioned what to me is the biggest failing of the m43 system, and that's the inability to track and keep in focus fast moving objects against a plain background, e. g. BIF, which my DSLR does so well. I have the original EM5 and a D7100. If Olympus could solve that, I'd upgrade my EM5 tomorrow.

On article Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review (2083 comments in total)

I'd like to see how the E-M1 with a Panasonic 100-300 m4/3 lens compares to a D7000 with a 300 f4 and a 1.4TC, I.e. twice the total weight and size, for BIF in terms of auto-focus and image quality.

On photo The lookout in the Seagulls challenge (1 comment in total)

It's a lovely image, well-named, and the pano is well executed - but they're not gulls, they're Royal Terns.

Thanks. That works.

Maybe I'm stupid, but I can't find a way to zoom using this app. If there isn't one, Camera plus - which does most of the same things and zooms easily- is a clear winner.
