  • is simply because they didn't sell any cameras. Period. None of their products were hot sellers. The NX1? Critics loved it, consumers didn't buy it. Sure, it may have been a monster camera but if ...
  • Replied in Well...
    my better half would never buy Sony either (for the same reasons), on the other hand, my various Playstations (and accessories) and my RX100 MKII are still showing strong as well as my current ...
  • TV dead,  portable media player dead,  several cell phones dying, etc etc etc. And it means absolutely nothing. I'll still buy Sony when the right products come out. Besides,  if you haven't ...
  • Replied in Japan...
    As far as I know,  that's only in Japan and it makes perfect sense because the GF line is a best seller in Japan,  and obviously Panasonic's best seller.  Why would they change the name on the one ...
  • Lol, sorry, either you are spectacularly awesome with MF (speed and accuracy) or your kids don't move much ;) My 1.5 yr old already runs/moves way too much for me to have anywhere near 80% success ...
  • Replied in Doubtful...
    I own neither cameras. Have the GX8 and GF1. The only Oly is my E-P2. So don't have an absolute answer but in general, the Pen-F, E-M1 MKII and GX8 are all comparable when it comes to IQ. And with ...
  • I have the first version of the Oly 14-150mm and it's NOT weather sealed. Only MKII does.
  • reach that price point again but the 25mm was sold of $99 one time. And considering it's a pretty new lens, it will go down in price over time. You can't really compare those primes from Nikon or ...
  • That his/her world view has finally been corrected and that the huuuuuuuge injustice of such sacrilege to their Internet forum world is back to its 100% truthfulness!
  • Simply because lines like the GFx lines are actually doing well.  I.e. GFx line is actually a best seller in Japan. There is no way they will change the name on that. It's the rest of the world ...
  • Replied in Well,
    the intended purpose is to generally capture your equivalent of a snapshot photo but in this case, video. Mostly, scratch that, almost exclusively family videos. No studio stuff, no recording of ...
  • Currently use a Tascam DR-08 with a shockmount on my GX8. For those that don't know the DR-08, think of it as a comparable to the Zoom H1 (albeit the H1 is probably a bit better). The problem with ...
  • But glad the problem had been resolved. Certainly love the manual focus of my pl 25mm. Would be devastated if it didn't work.
  • Replied in True but...
    Only one is constantly known (and always reminded of the fact) as the company that makes toasters, as in,  "what does a company that makes toasters know anything about cameras?". Sony does not ...
  • for electronics, not cameras. They created Lumix so people can associate cameras to a brand new brand as opposed to a company that makes fridges, etc. Besides, Sony has they NEX or Alpha line, ...
  • Replied in Otherwise...
    To do a side by side comparison,  check it out camerasize.com though I don't know if the lenses you want can be picked.
  • They pretty much have all M43 and 43 cameras and lenses. http://www.four-thirds.org/en/special/matching.html Hubert My non-digital gear: Agfa Isolette, Ricohflex VII, Bessa R, Bessa L, Zorky 4, Fed ...
  • Replied in Why?
    So you knowing bought a heavy laptop and you complain that it's heavy? Bought my Macbook Air knowing its limitations and of course it's benefits. It's an incredible machine with incredible build ...
  • But, generally speaking,  you won't need a guide book to figure out how to use a Panasonic body. Course everyone is different but seems for most,  Panasonic cameras are intuitive without much need ...
