Great BSI 1" sensor, handling , flip screen and fast lens - image quality is limited at the wide end by the "down a toilet roll" fisheye view the lens naturally provides meaning lots of edge softening stretching to remove distortion but the lens gets a lot better as you zoom to a superbly sharp 100mm FOV F2.8 .. the Fishy wide end means in RAW in C1 you get to do true multi aspect (though manually in the converter) ......... It`ll do for a pocket camera, better than the RX100 Mk1 I had for years , and a lot better than the Mk3 at any focal length past a 35mm FOV
WORK CAMERA - really tatty backup / Low rez cam Bought real cheap to replace the cheap ex studio D610 I got as a backup which a friend needed more than I ... The D3 gives me back the proper AF, build and fast low rez images of the missed (and dead) D700 I was using previously as a backup / low rezzer ...... the D3 was the first Nikon FF cam and it stands up today, tougher than the D700 with proper professional mirror mech which doesn`t die early in life so a far better buy thesedays as parts are discontinued for these cams .. can be had for half the price of a D3S and the only Diff is at ISO1600 upwards - this one was used D3300 money as the useless focus area Switch on the back had broken off.
WORK CAMERA - IMO the current state of the art for a work DSLR for general use - AF is based on the D5 so as good as DSLR AF gets.. this cam is tougher & handles better than any mirrorless loaded up .. XQD slot for Zero RAW + JPG buffer issues and UHS2 for SD . a camera to take a beating day in day out for years .....
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5
Panasonics Flagship professional level stills M43 camera with more than enough of the GH5's video features to keep it on the shelves for three years ! . Olympus EM1-II level IBIS, Ergonomics which combine the best of Nikon and Canon DSLRs , the best M43 sensor and hods of CPU power have made this an evolving camera over that 3 years raising it beyond the GH5 as a do it all pro tool for all but the deepest of Video users - even takes cheap GH3 batteries .... Possibly the most solid, pro usable M43 Camera
Had it ages - A few notes - Smallest G with a decent grip, 1st G with touchpad AF , uses GH2 overisized 18Mp sensor but doesn`t implement multi aspect (Doh) , has its lower floor noise over the older 16Mp Pan sensor though ..
