  • Replied in GF7
    Thanks for holding my feet to the fire. My original post could have been clearer. It would have been more accurate for me to say that a) in most situations I'm not bothered much or at all by the ...
  • Glad you weren't inconvenienced. Silly sub-thread. That's my last word on the subject.
  • If your point was that the original post was too long to read, it seems especially ironic to reproduce the whole thing, then add even more words to it.
  • Replied in GF7
    Yes, I definitely found the poor visibility in bright sunlight to be a liability — before I purchased the Clearviewer.
  • Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, but why doesn't weather sealing matter if one shoots only with small primes? Can't water still enter the camera regardless?
  • Replied in GF7
    I don't see a lot of enthusiasm for the GF7, but I like mine. Other small MFT bodies I've used include the GF1, GX1, and E-PM1, but the GF7 is my favorite of those that I've used. In particular, I ...
  • I see that you have the 14mm f/2.5 II. I've not seen very much written about this iteration of the lens, and I'm wondering if there was a significant improvement from version I to version II. I ...
  • Replied in Unless ...
    I haven't found the big advantage of the 42.5mm f/1.2 over the 42.5mm f/1.7 to be sharpness as much as the potentially narrower depth of field. During the brief time I owned the 1.2, I enjoyed ...
  • Replied in Did they?
    By the way, there is a version II of the 14mm, which I've read hardly anything about. It's possibly just a cosmetic update, but maybe not...
  • https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicdmcg10/5 It appears to be no wonder that this camera didn't sell. DPReview described it as "a stripped-down version of the more expensive G2." It's also ...
  • I'm wondering what they're going to name the next model after the G9 in its series, considering that the name G10 was already used for a now-nearly-forgotten Panasonic camera in the early days of MFT.
  • I'll bet Leica is laughing at people who buy this lens, as well as products like the M Monochrom. The value per dollar is off the charts - in the "low" direction.

  • Replied in Consider the GF7
    The GF7, which is similar in size to the GM5, can be found cheap. For my purposes, the tilting screen of the GF7 is more useful than the small viewfinder of the GM5. Furthermore, I just bought a ...
  • I'm guessing it's a DIY version of this: https://www.clearviewer.com/Products.html I just ordered a ClearViewer for my GF7 (similar to a GM1, but with a tilting screen). I'm looking forward to ...
  • There is (or was) a good, tiltable add-on EVF available for the GX1. I know a lot of people don't like add-on EVFs, but I found it useful, and even sort of cute - a bit reminiscent of the add-on ...
  • If the GM1 is on your short list, you might also consider the GF7 (or the nearly identical GF8). They can still be found pretty cheap. I have a GF7 as a backup to my G85, and have been very ...
  • This is the only smartphone I have owned so far, so I have no personal experience with other phones to which to compare the Nexus 6P. Be that as it may, I find that this device meets my needs ...
  • I frequently see it in the Olympus Outlet for $60 refurbished. There's almost no excuse not to own it at that price, at least if you have a camera body with IBIS.
  • Nice video! I assume this was shot with the 25mm f/1.7, not the f/1.4?
  • I've owned both. I currently have only the f1.7. It's a very satisfying lens, although complaints from some owners suggest that perhaps there's greater-than-normal sample variation with this ...
