  • On the contrary, I believe a small scaled back camera (and in only one product line) is a more realistic expectation from anyone willing to pick this up from JIP. I mean, who wants to get into the ...
  • Luckily for me  EVF works fine, though small.  I would say this is the single and most significant disappointment for this GX9, and the most serious mistake Panasonic has made (and more than once) ...
  • In addition to my earlier comments on the GX9, I would like to add these: - the GX9 does not have audio input, which is obviously very important to those serious about video taking. I don't care ...
  • This is not about your skills or any individual's skills. I'm sure your print looks just great. Same for anybody's prints when taken with skills and under optimal conditions and shooting the right ...
  • See also my reply to MHshooter above. The E-M5 II was available new for USD400. However, I think most upgraders who do not mind the FAS would have already bought it long ago.
  • Thanks for your suggestion, but for my requirements, E-M5 II is too old. It does not have much improvement in performance over my E-M5, i.e. in IQ, in resolution, AF or IBIS, and it does not have ...
  • 38x50 inches is no problem if it's outdoor or when there is enough distance between the photo and the viewer. Indoors, and close up, I say it's much less painful, even if possible for adequate ...
  • you will find it very hard to find something just like the E-M5 but with newer specs and more modern features in M43. If you value a compact size and want a tilt screen, as well as a 20MP sensor ...
  • I searched for years for an upgrade to my E-M5s and I looked at every camera that is small but not entry level, and that has a tilt screen and a better sensor. The only M43 camera that I can ...
  • That's where you could be wrong. Sony is doing well with their tilt screen FFs. The G9, if I remember correctly, was supposed to be a stills oriented camera (and the existing GH5 and G85 video), ...
  • FAS is what ruined the Pen F, for me, and also every single enthusiast or pro-grade cameras made by Olympus in the last 8 years.  FAS is terrible for street or candids, or any ad hoc moments.  I ...
  • Will Olympus or NewCo "support its customers" better than Panasonic? And NewCo will not "put its m43 r&d to a halt? Will NewCo be more likely to "come up with a new sensor and new cameras" than ...
  • There should be settings that can be fine tuned to equalise the diference in over exposure, or to reduce it according to your taste. We have different poisons, you the LCD, and me the FAS.
  • NOTE. This thread is not about whether Panasonic or Olympus is better. It's about life after Olympus. Protecting yourself by helping Panasonic survive in M43.
  • There are tilt screen cameras from Sony, Nikon and Fuji with high performance. Olympus chose to only put tilt screen on its lowest performance 16MP cameras. If not for this GX9, I would most ...
  • G9 is too big. To be exact, It's for a tilt screen on a compact body with the newer sensor. HiRes means nothing. IBIS is available from any brand now. All Olympus had as a real advantage is quality ...
  • I have never bought any Panasonic gear at all until now and I also prefer Olympus, BUT things are not the same now. Life goes on and it would be better if Panasonic can still continue in M43, ie ...
  • No problem, as long as no one blames me and others who prefer tilt screens and a smaller camera for Olympus' demise. I suspect there are a lot of us and it's not such a tiny or negligible minority.
  • Panasonic cameras are not perfect, but the big difference is this.  Its camera businesss is still alive.  It's still pushing on.  It has more resources and interest, eg getting into FF as well, ...
  • Petr's photo are fantastic. They show what is possible when really good photographers can do with nice hardware. There's no doubt Olympus has created some really nice products. Robin Wong also has ...
