  • Replied in Old school fix
    I bought one of those (different brand, though) once from Amazon. Total junk, WAY off level.  I've always felt that the levels in my cameras are pretty good.  I'm interested now to test them as ...
  • Replied in Just got it!
    There are tons of cameras with articulating screens for that market.  There ought to be a high-end body with tilt screen for the tilt fans, and the  RF-style GX9 body would be just the right ...
  • The EVF does not interfere with the flash. However, when a flash is mounted, the flash interferes with the ability of the EVF to tilt up. The extent depends on the flash. With the tiny flash that ...
  • Replied in Just got it!
    You can shoot at waist level.  It's just a couple more steps to flip the screen out to the side and then rotate it so that it faces up.  And it makes the left hand grip on the camera a bit more ...
  • I and many others agree with you that the GX8 feels good in hand, not too big.  Colorful shots!  Enjoy your new camera!
  • With the Panasonic 14-140 (the f/3.5 version) the OP would get Dual Image Stabilization with the GX80/85.  That and DFD would cause me to choose the Panasonic lens, which also has very good image ...
  • It's not a camera for me, but that price seems about right.  The release price seemed high to me.
  • It's $300 extra.  Current version is $699 at B&H, and new version is supposed to sell for $999.  I'm not sure of any differences other than new one will come with Dual I.S. 2, it may have a bit ...
  • Oh, absolutely correct. I was just listing the OP's three options for "covering this range." For myself, I replaced the 14-42 plus 45-150 with the 14-140 II for one-lens convenience in daytime. I ...
  • So, three options for more or less covering this range: 1.  12-35 and 35-100, get you f/2.8, but the inconvenience of two lenses; 2.  12-100, covers that range, at probably similar IQ, but f/4; and ...
  • It doesn't even show an image for that "BGX8" plate, but at that price presumably it is just the bottom plate, like this BGX7 plate for the GX7: http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/BGX7-Plate-for-Lumix-GX7
  • I've owned six Panasonic bodies, and the GX7 is my favorite, for all the features packed in a compact size, and quite good IQ.  The GX85 advanced it in certain ways, but it also stepped backwards ...
  • I had the 45-150 and thought its IQ was very good.  I've heard the same of the 35-100, though I've never used it.  So as others have said, definitely try the 45-150 and see what you think of it, ...
  • Replied in Just who?
    Sorry, he can't be bothered with your enemies.  His time is totally consumed composing retaliatory tweets against his own. :-P
  • I assume that is largely due to the Canadian dollar dropping, but, regardless, yeah, ouch, that makes it way expensive there.  It's too expensive for me, too, but like I said, I don't need it.  ...
  • I don't have a need/strong desire for the top-end video capabilities of the GH5, but for those who do, apparently including you, it somewhat surprises me that the 17.5%/$300 price increase from ...
  • Here you go. The plate has a small lip which is toward the front of the camera. It has worked fine for me, no twisting or loosening, nice and compact, can be clamped in front-to-back or sideways. I ...
  • According to what a Panasonic Sr. Project Engineer told me, the unique internal number tells exactly where and when the camera was manufactured, including unit number off that line. It is ...
  • I don't want a big L plate, so I find this works just fine on my GX8 (and on previous MFT bodies I have owned): http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/B6-Bidirectional-plate-with-one-1-4-20-screw  My ...
  • Prior to any reviews or examples and going on the specs alone, it appears that the GH5 should be the best MFT stills camera that Panasonic has ever released. I would guess that image quality ...
