  • Replied in True...
    But there is absolutely no indication that they are leaving M43 either. Any one predicting they are leaving have as much "truth" as those saying otherwise.
  • If they can bring along their Foveon sensor to the format, would make things even more interesting (even with its limited uses). And if Panasonic could help Sigma design an actual decent camera ...
  • Replied in Step forward...
    but it may not work with the currently available lenses even with firmware...although I certainly hope they can be updated to work...
  • Replied in Umm...
    sure, in the stills photography market you are correct...but, they are already quite successfully competing with FF ILC's with their GH line. A FF version will only make their stance in the ...
  • Which is why I don't need dual slots (not that I would mind). On the other hand, those that 'Are' pro's...well, these new mirrorless are...well, not as desirable as they hoped.
  • it's no big deal for me as well but it's one feature that everyone is complaining about with the new Nikon's and Canon's. And I'm presuming the Panasonic would not be a mid-tier camera like the ...
  • Replied in Dual slots...
    Don't know what it will turn out to be but I would be very surprised if the new FF "WON'T" have dual memory slots ;) And it's almost assured that it would have superior video features (well, except ...
  • Replied in Doubt...
    Doubt you'll need to worry at all considering the GH series has always been one of the best m43 stills camera as well as the best video cameras. Can't see them changing that.
  • And what he said is correct. I have the Panasonic Leica 12-60mm f2.8 with a broken mount (not the metal ring but where the metal mount screw screws into, i.e. plastic pillar on the lens body). The ...
  • ...if they so wish. They are, after all, larger than any camera manufacturer. Yes, their camera division is not the largest but if Panasonic really wants too, they do have the capacity to easily ...
  • Replied in As a company...
    Panasonic is larger than every single camera manufacturer. Yes, their camera division is not but the company itself is certainly well positioned to be able to keep M43 going as long as they can ...
  • ...the size of Panasonic. I know you generally don't figure size by revenue only but Fujifilm is about 800 times smaller than Ricoh... And about 3000 times smaller than Panasonic... I.e. Panasonic ...
  • Or Pentax/Ricoh. They are huge! Heck, they are even larger than Sony. Sure, they could just get out of the photographic world or they could, just as easily double down and expand their ...
  • I hate to say it, was simply it was too expensive. No one bought it till it went on clearance prices. Too keep on dishing out premium models that don't sell is now how companies work. At least not ...
  • Took a long time to find the thread that mentions the repair shop but... I believe this is the repair shop that may be able to repair the lens. www.acecamerarepair.co.uk I believe a poster had a ...
  • ...GX9 is smaller on all dimensions (HxWxD)... And is closer to the A6500 in size...
  • I believe there is a UK Panasonic repair shop that would fix it for you by making you that part. Sorry, I can't remember off hand. I'll have to dig up the store name. I'll respond back to this ...
  • I know I really like my GX8. Until Panasonic comes out with a rangefinder styled camera with the same or better EVF without being larger than the GX8, doubt I would be upgrading anytime soon. And ...
  • Is a more viable business strategy? Umm...okay, not sure what business school you came from but I think I'll keep looking for my business education. Nothing personal.
  • Why do you keep on mentioning GX7 MKIII? Do you live in Japan? Because that is the only place on this planet where it's called GX7 MKIII. Everywhere else on planet Earth it's GX9. And before you ...
