  • Not at Amazon. It's well above the G9 in their mirrorless sales rank. OTOH it's still beaten by the G85.
  • Interesting point. However, if it really filled an important niche in a big portfolio, wouldn't a lot more of it be selling? Maybe it's enough in a key niche, but I'm skeptical. Japanese companies ...
  • Internal politics, that is. Jumping into the FF market seems like a spectacularly dumb move on Panasonic's part. I don't see how they'll ever get that capital back. That means the FF proponents are ...
  • I consider it significant too, and I like having hires available. However, I think the OP's question is whether a 10368 x 7776 hires from an EM1ii (or other 20mp) is going to resolve more than a ...
  • A raw hires shot from the 5.2 is 64mp, so the difference is just 80/64, not 2x, which is not surprising as the sensor resolution difference is 20/16. I suspect that hires is already primarily ...
  • Hey, I can beat all that stuff with just my 100-400. I'll be damned if I can get it in my pocket though.
  • I loved my LX100, though it sadly died young. "Fixed" and "m43" don't really go together. It would probably be a lot more productive to release a real successor to the GM series, with modern IBIS, ...
  • From the photos of failures, teardowns, and Oly's exploded diagrams, it sure looked to me like a design flaw. I wouldn't rely on the tripod socket as an attachment point, unless you can absolutely ...
  • Replied in Rubylith?
    What if you cover your screen with a red filter like Rubylith? https://www.dickblick.com/products/ulano-rubylith-masking-film/ I've never tried it, but heard of people using it in ...
  • I'm just mentioning this to make it searchable, in case it helps someone who was as mystified as I was by this minor change in LR. Lightroom Classic 11 has a new metadata viewing behavior, with an ...
  • Replied in multi-aspect
    Cultists always feel misunderstood. If nothing else, the multi-aspect sensor in the GH2 was certainly that. If I had a bitcoin for every time some ignoramus said, "but it's just a crop..." I could ...
  • Given that it only breaks one camera, that's going to be a tough sell.
  • Also, if you go the silica gel route, it has to be fresh enough to work. It can be restored in an oven at low heat (the silica, not the lens!). Yet another option is a vacuum pump, if you have one. ...
  • Depends on what you're after I think. When my kids were toddlers I took lots of pictures of them with contrast detect cameras like the Sony 828 and Panny GH2. It was fine. The EM1ii is better, but ...
  • I don't have the 10, but I have an EM5ii and in general I think small-grip bodies are fine. The EM1ii is much nicer with large/heavy lenses like the 100-400, but that's the only case that strongly ...
  • This can be a pretty big negative - the Oly is normally twice the price, and the Panasonic is regularly discounted to $99. If a 25 lives in your bag for occasional low-light use (my situation), ...
  • This is really easy if the top front Fn button is assigned to HDR (which is the default as I recall). It gives you a bracket set in raw, and blends the images in jpeg. I don't use jpeg so I can't ...
  • Replied in Nope
    At least mine doesn't. If others do, I'll be mad. It's a nice little lens though, and the price is right.
  • Your experience is rather discouraging. On the bright side, I only started this thread because I couldn't find any others about similar EVF failures. The only common issue (not lately) was EVF ...
  • Just a followup. I sent the camera in for repair. This is what you get (in he US) after filling out the online repair form: Things went basically by the book: I shipped it around Nov. 9, USPS ...
