  • I never said to put in a larger EVF, just a new one. Sure, one that is as good as the one in the GX8 would be great, yet it doesn't have to be as large. Just replace the field sequential EVF ...
  • Like seriously, enough is enough! Give it a new EVF even if you have to make the body slightly bigger (though I'm sure you don't have too). Keep it tiltable and make it non-16:9. Update everything ...
  • Replied in Yup
    Hehe, yup.
  • Bahaha, yes, just read it and immediately groaned inwards asking myself how I messed that one up ;) Actually, the 10 bit readout hasn't bothered me at all so far. Actually, totally forgot about it. ...
  • Still, and probably remains, the smallest M43 cameras to be produced. Tiny but lacking in build quality, albeit, missing some functionality because of its small size. Still, it's 16mp sensor is ...
  • Replied in To clarify...
    Yes, you need to have Panasonic lenses to get the best of Panasonic's AF and dual stabilization. Similar to needing Olympus lenses for best image stabilization on Olympus cameras (albeit, only ...
  • Replied in PZ 45-175mm?
    I know it's a little shorter than what you want but as far as I can tell, optically it's better than any of the consumer zoom lenses including the Oly equivalents (albeit, those don't go past ...
  • Replied in Ugly Lens?
    I do like that lens. My better half has it for her K5. I actually like the look of that lens, as well as most of the other higher-end Pentax primes. They certainly know how to make lenses. I wish ...
  • Replied in Same
    A long time ago though I can't remember how long. I  bought an adapter. Didn't focus at infinity. I asked for a refund. They said unless I ship it back they can't refund me. And I have to cover ...
  • Yet, the Henrys around me seem to have a good selection of Panasonic cameras/lenses available. And I generally go to Aden Camera and they do have lots of stock of cameras and lenses, including pro ...
  • As, as far as I can tell, there are some G9's available in Toronto. Aden Camera, which has always been good with Panasonic cameras/lenses has it in stock for about $1499 CDN (about $1125USD). Mind ...
  • I'm guessing you didn't ask about m43 in general but just Olympus? Did you ask about Panasonic? Are you in Ontario? Which store? When you say local, I'm guessing it's not a chain store (like Henry's)?
  • So I can replace my ver1 lens with the new.
  • It to be inferior or comparable to the inbuilt mic. With the shock mount and wind muffs I find it much better than inbuilt. Those advantages alone makes me prefer the Rode micro. On the other ...
  • Replied in It's a mic
    It's a mic you can attach to the hotshoe with a cable atached to the mic port.
  • Err...what in the world is a "proper" build? Having "some" plastic doesn't make the PL a plastic fantastic crap. Generally, you call items that are all plastic, a plastic fantastic (assuming the ...
  • I have always wanted the Jupiter 3. Maybe one day. For now I'll just have to be happy with the two copies of my Jupiter 8's. Albeit, I don't generally use it with my M43 cameras these days. I use ...
  • Isn't that lens a consumer level non-pro lens? If so, I can't imagine it being that expensive... [Whoops, I'm thinking of another lens. The 150-400 is that huge white lens that's presumably a pro ...
  • I'm presuming the Oly 100-400 will be for those who want a consumer level 100-400 so will fall below the Panny 100-400 so inline with the Panny 100-300 and Oly 75-300 IQ wise.
  • Replied in Um...
    Assuming this a piece leftover... There really isn't any real risk assuming you are smart about it. All you may need to do is lift your camera so that the card slot is upside down and just give a ...
