  • Unfortunately I was spoiled by my GX8 EVF and G7 EVF before it. While shooting I use it to to verify composiition and to make sure that the parts I want are in focus. After shooting I also use the ...
  • This last reason is actually the reason I had to get rid of my GX9, that and poorer AF performance than my other cameras. The EVF was nearly unusable for me because of the coke bottle optics no ...
  • I stream with my G9 all the time and this comes from Panasonic's GH5 II page: https://shop.panasonic.com/lumixgh5m2 (1) SUPPORTS UNLIMITED LIVE STREAMING: Both wired and wireless live streaming, ...
  • Out shooting with our gear :) But seriously, I suspect there are more Olympus threads here , especially recently because there's more to talk about them than Panasonic. There's just a lot more ...
  • Considering that the OP himself posted other non-Panasonic bodies as possible options then its obvious he's open to it. All I did was keep him in the MFT system and offer him a truly viable ...
  • The closest modern MFT to your G3 would be the Olympus E-M5 III. https://camerasize.com/compare/#185,835 But read up the reviews on it re the plasticy build and durability to see if its a concern ...
  • I think those last two images speak for themselves. They strongly suggest that the sensor or maybe the mount might be misaligned. ie one side might be slightly higher than the other. Good job ...
  • I've found that the 14-140 is at its sharpest 1 or so  stop over its widest aperture. So in general if I'm going for sharpness I shoot @f5.6 @ 14mm and f7.1 - 8, light permiting  at @140mm. Give ...
  • Might I ask why those 2 specifically? What feature drew you to them rather than the other cameras in the Panasonic lineup? And what's it going to be used for? Any video?
  • Yeah but he was really buying it for the lens more than the camera. His photo camera is going to be the GX85 so shuttershock won't be an issue and the G7 would be a video camera so no shock there ...
  • I was late to the other thread but I'll say it here as well. If you get a chance, check out the G85. (1) Basically the same EVF as the GX8 except it doesn't articulate. GX8 might be better but I find ...
  • Replied in GX8 vs GX9?
    unfortunately I got here too late. But if you end up not liking the GX8 , one alternative, since you were looking at the G9 was the G85. (1) No AA filter (2) Much much better IBIS
  • The jury hasn't even convened for the GH6 yet :D
  • Uhh , they are in it for the weight too , because yes, that combo is a lot heavier than a GM5, but it's still lighter than the FF kit they'd be using to get the same functionality (Dual gripped, ...
  • There'll be an improvement in image quality due to the 20mp sensor and improved processing engine. The biggest change will be in image acquisition rather than quality. In other words the new ...
  • You'll get no argument from me there. re the EM1.3 , I see it as a refinement of the EM1.2 . Other than the EVF it fixes or improves a number of issues that the previous version had. In my view , ...
  • 'Gross exaggeration', not even just mild, but gross. In this context this statement actually surprisingly hypocritical :D Ok Panasonic's own website states: https://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-c ...
  • Yeah but it doesn't matter because the G9 NEEDS DualIS just to compete with the IBIS of the E-M1.3. So having to depend on the IBIS only of the EM1.3 when using Panasonic lenses is not really a con. ...
  • I don't have the issue with any of the others. I mean it happens in marginal conditions like dark backlit scenes but the GX9 would be broad daylight with high contrast subjects. Panasonic AF really ...
  • I had a GX9 but 2 things forced me to sell it: The EVF for me was unusable. Even at max diopter adjustment I could never get the image to be clear across the frame. I live in my EVF's and this one ...
