  • I'm a hack at video, but here's a short drumming circle video shot in 4K (but apparently not viewable on YouTube in 4K?) with GX8 and 12-35: https://youtu.be/zIgImAjClpI
  • Actually there was nothing about Boss of Sony's post that suggested he was offended by your comments. He was simply expressing his own opinion on the capability of his Mac, which a true believer in ...
  • I'm confident that once Oly and Panasonic read your post and realize that what they are selling is not good enough for you, they will get right on it.   You should post again with the precise speci ...
  • I have a GX7 and get by just fine with its EVF, but many people don't like it. Some who have tried both (I haven't) say that the GX85 EVF is worse than the GX7's. If you want a truly excellent, ...
  • I don't do much either, at least not yet, but I may try it more in the future.  Old graphics card (GTX 570) wouldn't output 4K, and my motherboard was too old to accept some of the newer graphics ...
  • Yeah, unlike some lenses mildly updated and reissued as "Version II," these really are two completely different lenses: 14-140 , f/4.0-5.8, 17 elements in 13 groups, 1.01 lbs, 2.76 x 2.76 x 3.31 ...
  • The 45 was an early lens purchase for me, and I thought it was terrific.  Later I got a good bundle deal on a new camera with the 42.5 f1.7, so I compared it against the 45.  My testing led me to ...
  • After two pretty full days of working on it, I've got everything transferred over and all my programs installed, with most preferences and settings restored. Yes, it was a PITA, but now it's done. ...
  • I've just retired my 2009 desktop.  I had upgraded bits of it over the years, but even the replacement GPU couldn't output 4K.    I've spent the last two days setting the new box up, and it ...
  • Perhaps a mistake by Amazon, but several folks ordered it at that price, with the 12-32 lens: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4183537

  • Personally, I think that if someone is posting comparison photos taken with two different lenses/cameras, it is courteous for that one poster to take the miniscule time necessary to identify which ...
  • I assume that they are intended to replicate the in-camera jpg processing settings, natural, vivid, etc. It could be an easy way for a jpg shooter to start shooting raw and have the freedom to ...
  • I'm not sure why I clicked on this thread since I own none of the mentioned gear, but it was an interesting read.  Y'all are some perceptive and thorough people, and I think this thread shows this ...
  • Despite owning the Panasonic 15 and 20, that Voigt is on my wish list, for several reasons: to be forced to play with MF, to have a 35mm equivalent prime, for the f/095, and for the Voight ...
  • I recently was surprised to see that I had taken about 925 photos at an event, and then I realized it was all on one battery (original Lumix), and I don't know how many more I might have been able ...
  • I will soon have had my GX7 for four years, no problems. The dial issue seems to have been reported more with the GM5. Some have suggested it might be caused by dust from carrying the camera in a ...
  • Replied in Wow
    I don't get all the people giving NCV grief over his post. He did say that "for me" primes are redundant relics, and he did qualify it by noting that special tasks or conditions may call for ...
  • I think IBIS would be impossible in this size.  Twenty MP, no AA, DFD, perhaps a somewhat improved shutter, dual control dials instead of the sometimes problematic click dial, some of the newer ...
  • So, that about sums it up?
  • Oh, what you REALLY want is for Oly to provide a "Custom Multi" feature like Panasonic does in the GX8, and probably all models after it (just guessing). Then you can create and save your own ...
