  • Here's one of my pups, at ISO 3200.
  • It seems like one would have to remove the eyecup to photograph the EVF.  I tugged a bit at mine a bit, but it seems pretty securely attached, and without having any instructions on how to remove ...
  • I just now took a look at the review and saw his photo depicting severe EVF pincushion.  Mine is NOTHING like that!  At least, not with my eye up to the eyecup.  I don't know if his photo is ...
  • I'm with you - I have to look for pincushion to see a tiny bit on the edges of the screen, but I haven't seen it in vertical lines in the subject.  As far as "smearing" in corners, the EVF is so ...
  • Replied in My G9 feedback
    The camera was delivered to my office. After the battery charged, I stuck a lens on it, set it to RAW +jpg, and went out for a late lunch to take a few shots. Here are four quick snaps in full ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    G9-4
  • Added 3 photos to their gallery

  • I had a couple of instances of focus racking-- I'm pretty sure I was trying to get AF on something on my desk closer than the minimum focus distance of the lenses -- where the AF was going back ...
  • I never used 4/3 gear, but if you have the lenses and like them, I'd say it makes a lot of sense to buy an E-M1 first and see how you like working with it and those lenses, before embarking on a ...
  • Replied in My G9 feedback
    In the menu setting for MF Assist, the default is that it is activated only by turning the focus ring on the lens.  If you change that to the top option (activate by both focus ring and button ...
  • I like having the front dial set to EC and the back to either SS or A (depending on whether I'm shooting in Aperture mode - most often - or in Shutter mode.  I have assigned Fn5 (lower button on ...

    Doh!  Just a single press on Fn 1 does it for me, at least with an AF lens on the camera but the camera set to MF. Thanks.  Multiple ways to accomplish the same thing.
  • Replied in My G9 feedback
    Thanks.  Very quick, if the LCD is facing out! :-D
  • Replied in My G9 feedback
    I don't often press the Play button while holding the camera with the EVF up to my eye ready to shoot.  Perhaps that's partly because, unlike you, I use one-second review. So for me it would not be ...
  • Replied in My G9 feedback
    I'm just getting started with mine, but this camera is the biggest adjustment of all of the 7 or 8 Panasonic bodies I've had. The controls are so different, and the options so much more numerous ...
  • I'm not sure I understand what you are getting at.  What's the crisis?  Are you saying that B&H has reduced the prices of MFT gear, especially used MFT gear? I took at look at their prices on used ...
  • I should probably update my whining to note that UPS surprised me by delivering my G9 today, the originally scheduled date.  Thanks, UPS.
  • I think you are mistaken about the part in bold.  I just turned my new G9 on and this was one of the first things I checked.  If you are pushing the joystick upwards and the focus box is moving ...
  • Well, dang, B&H shipped my G9 on Tuesday with delivery at my work address scheduled for Friday. When I checked the tracking and saw it was shipped via UPS, I groaned. Sure enough, UPS' "three day ...
  • From what I understand, the 90 MB/s rating on, say, a SanDisk Extreme card represents its maximum speed. The new V ratings (V30, V60, V90) represent minimum sustained speed. V90 is needed for the ...
