  • Depends on the pocket; it will fit nicely in jacket pockets and cargo pants, even in dress pants with pleated fronts (as long as you don't mind Mae West jokes) :-) Yes, and it leaves me wondering ...
  • rightly so don't even try, I don't. I don't think so had no problems with Watson (bh photo own brand) I have both. I am happy to use the 14-140, unless I wish to carry the camera in the jacket ...
  • Created discussion thread trip to yucatan, lens advice
    I am planning a trip to Yucatan and Belize; maya archeological sites, colonial architecture, the rainforest. Light weight and flexibility are paramount. I plan to take with me my GM1 with the ...
  • Think of drones; and Blackmagics. There are always circumstances where smaller will be better - in fact a pro friend has even used a GoPro (attached to a ceiling corner) when he needed to take a ...
  • Replied in Few ideas
    Honestly, I would second all that and IBIS besides; but we are still probably a long way from a new shutter and IBIS; rolling shutter cannot be improved without a new sensor and processor with ...
  • You mean you hated the evf itself or the pop-up function?
  • I think there is at least room for improving the manual controls and the evf (a pop-up evf would also make a 3" back screen possible); and Panny could always put in the latest processor too. And ...
  • Created discussion thread What future for the GM series?
    The GM5 is on closeout sale at Adorama. It is no longer available at BHPhoto. And there are no rumors about a replacement model. Can it be that Panasonic has decided to kill those little gems? ...
  • There are several ways to skin this particular cat; a ZS100 as a back-up to a GM1/5, as well as a GM1/5 with a macro lens for special uses or with a small fast prime (say 12/2, 15/1.7, 17/1.8, ...
  • ... and a second control dial, with an extra fn button in the middle, at the place of the focus dial, please!
  • Hey, what about me? NO, IT'S A MARKET OF FOUR*!!! :-);-) * (without counting the extra bodies Tom would buy)
  • Just to add  few word's to JC's advice: ... and the new Panasonic ZS100 ... in which case the Adorama deals are too good to miss http://www.adorama.com/IPCDMCGM5RL2.html 850$ (12-32 + 35-100) http: ...
  • Sony is supposed to have the quickest autofocus (among cameras of the same generation), unfortunately it has a rather poor lens selection. Fuji is supposed to have the edge in terms of IQ and ...
  • That's a hard one. There is not much difference between EM5 and GX80 in terms of size and weight; but I doubt that there will be such a big difference in terms of IQ either. On the whole I suspect ...
  • I am happy with my GM1. I would have been happier if it had at least one more dial (and button) - and an evf, which was only added with the GM5. I am less happy that there is no GM6 in sight. Well,...

  • Replied in Oh dear...
    Correct. But - and here is the rub - those who are not obsessed with shallow DoF (never mind those, like me, who learned photography back in the days when shallow DoF was considered something to ...
  • Replied in Um...
    There we go again! Shot noise is relevant only once you start to get too much of it; with the latest generation of 4/3 sensors you only start to worry above 3200 ISO. And 4/3 has an advantage over ...
  • Replied in Um...
    True enough, but an 8,3X constant 2.8 zoom looks pretty special to me and I know of no precedent in photography lenses, unless you count the Sony RX10 or the Olympus Stylus 1.

  • Sure it is - just look at cinematography zoom lenses. But you would need a camera rig and a dolly to use it :-)
