  • The Fuji is fixed focal length lens like the poster was talking about.  The RX100 is a zoom like almost every other compact camera made.  Very different camera for very different users.

    If you added everything people wished, for it wouldn't be a GM.  It would be much bigger! Yep.  I would take my GM1 with 20MP please. If I could dream up a GM7 I would just add the new sensor to ...
  • You don't have to change lenses because outside of extremely wide or extremely long lenses they all are already in there.  Even a lowly 14-150II  (I have one, not that great) and a mid level m43 ...
  • different market.

    I think one of them ruined a photo of mine once!
  • Replied in Yes, Thank You
    You are right.  Thank you for correcting me.  The 3.5-5.6 should have been 2.5-4.  Not sure what was going on in my brain this AM. Well now that I'm looking at the correct numbers it makes the 1" ...

    It will be some time before I get it. I bought it a few weeks ago when they were on sale. It was back-ordered so not sure when it will arrive. Will try to remember to post something. Most reports ...
  • Yes a GM7 would be nice.  Really wish they kept that series going.  I have a GM1 and also a 20/1.7.  Can fit in cargo pants pocket, but still not really what I call a pocket camera.  There is a ...

    slowing down yeah.  Only so much you can do with that size sensor.  Just not enough market share to invest big money to advance the sensor.  Still, current ones do what most people need.  if you ...

    12-32.  Now that's compact.  Very good IQ also.  Get the 35-100 4-5.6 and your set for almost anything.  Both so small you can keep the one not mounted on the camera in your pocket.
  • Replied in m43 Superzooms
    Really if you just plan to use one lens then it makes no sense to get a m43 camera, or any other ILC. If you want a big step up in image quality then get a 1" sensor super zoom. Sonys RX10 II, II ...
  • Replied in Simplify
    Yes. Sell it at and get a Sony RX10 IV. You're life will be simpler and your pictures better. Seriously. Nothing that camera cannot do that all the gear you listed above can.
  • Replied in Get ...
    the FL you are most comfortable with.  I have an EPL7 and use it with both a 20/1.7 and 25/1.8.  I like the 20 FOV better, but the 25 AF's so much faster that I use that mostly.  Also got a 17/1.8 ...
  • Basically a m43 sensor has a one stop advantage on a 1" sensor. So what that really means is that your f3.5-5.6 lens would need a 1" sensor lens with an aperture of 1.7-2.8 to match the ...
  • just exists in peoples minds. Flat, Leica look etc.  Maybe some don't like the processing etc, but nothing inherent in m43 that makes it take 'flat' pictures.
  • for one issue ... the Fuji X100.  That camera dominates that space which really isn't all that big anyway.  A m43 similar camera would offer no benefits and would be probably be just as ...
  • out of those I would go with the G85.  Longer range lens is more useful. I'll suggest one other thing since you aren't asking about having a lot extra lenses.  How about a Sony RX1 II, III or IV.  ...
  • Replied in He's right
    Show the FF graph at f3.6 and THEN you have a fair comparison.
  • Replied in Not Really
    You or your friend must have a few bad primes. Don't have the 17, but from reviews it would be reasonable for the zoom to be better. The other lenses are a totally different story. I have the 25 ...
