    The Lumix GX9 in detail - new features and functions

    Looks like I may do what I said a while ago: Replace my GX8 with a GX10 around the time the GX11 comes out. Maybe I will have learned to use all the options the GX8 gives me by then. Stefan

    What computer do you use for your photography?

    Not rich enough for state-of-the-art solutions. After my old desktop board died, I just recycled an old Dell Optiplex 790 with a 512GB SSD, 8GB RAM, a 2GB video card, and a 27” Benq IPS monitor - does everything I need. Well, may invest $120 into a 16GB RAM upgrade one of these days... Stefan

    Showcase Olympus 75mm f/1.8

    I spent a weekend in the Alsace this past summer. Between lots of work and dying computers I am still a bit behind with going through my pictures. Here a few from a market in one of the small Alsatian towns. The tomatoes are very red, but that's how they looked in there... The cheese is through...

    What is your favorite lens and WHY--2 part question???

    To be honest, my Iphone 8+ has become my most-used walk-around camera & lens. For an easy walk-around camera combo I’ll either take the GM5 with the 12-32 in my pants pocket for convenience or the GX7 with the 14-140II - the latter being my most-used lens, just because of its versatility. My...

    Panny G-series vs GX-series

    FWIW, I fully agree with Turbofrog reg. the ‘needs’ for a GX9, would even sacrifice the weather-sealing for a reasonable price point. Stefan

    If there is never a Gx9, which camera will be your next?

    Some years back, when I had a GH2, I realized that any limitations clearly were mine, not that of the camera. I now have a GX7 which I love for the size and handling, an GX8 which I love for the viewfinder, and a GM5 which I use like a snapshot camera, mostly. If I could bake one, it would have...

    Panny G-series vs GX-series

    Interesting developments. I was also hoping to see many of the G9 features in an upcoming GX9. But then again, based on my finances I will probably pick up a used GX10 once the GX11 is on the market... Stefan

    Which MTF body & which MTF lens do you like the least ? (WAR)

    I have had Panasonic's G1, GH1, GH2, GX7, GX8, GM5 - and cannot see any of them as a real disappointment for what I use them for. True, the GM5 is not perfect when using flash and the viewfinder is pretty useless, but I use it as an upscale P&S, and for that it's perfectly fine. Also liked...

    Best Bargain you ever caught

    At the height of the c-mount lens craze, before all the fast native lenses were available, I won a lot of 30ish lenses for $1,900. The lot included 3 Angenieux 25/0.95 lenses that I sold for over $1,200 each. Fun times. Stefan

    Obsolete and Inexpensive

    Never had a DSLR, but does my old Leica R4 count? The m4/3 that really got me sucked into the system was the GH2. The 'pocket camera' I loved was the Olympus XA. Stefan

    I did something stupid - again... Had been scouting Ebay for a C/Y Planar 50/1.4 in good shape. There was one in Germany - where I will be going in a few weeks - so I put an offer on it. Half an hour later, another one popped up in mint condition and exactly how I wanted it, so guess what - I...

    What to shoot in NYC?

    Potential Laptop/Electronics Ban - Looking for Opinions/Options

    Stopovers in Reykjavik are easy, I actually prefer the short stop to being squeezed in a plane for 9h... It's very small, so there are no long ways to gates etc. it's a while that I flew with them, but they were among the friendliest airline experiences I had. Stefan

    Potential Laptop/Electronics Ban - Looking for Opinions/Options

    I also would trust Quatar Airways - but United? American? No way, especially not on a non-direct flight. I better start thinking about encrypting my stuff on the laptop. I wonder if I can take hard drives with backups in my carry-on if I have to check my laptop. Stefan

    Microphone adapter?

    Just to be sure: I picked up a cheap microphone (Takstar 698) with a 3.5mm plug, need to convert this to 2.5mm for my GX8. Can I just get any cheap converter or do I need to pay attention to something specific? Any tips or links to products appreciated. Stefan

    Panasonic 14-45 and 14-140 are sold. I updated the other prices a bit. I'm surprised nobody has picked up the Lensturbo, yet. It's nice toy for anybody with manual lenses that can be adapted to EOS - which are many. Stefan

    Stuff you keep but don't use.....

I think I am set with my m4/3 kit for now after going on a bit of a shopping spree the past 2 months, maybe a 15/1.7 further down the road, but many others are just moving out of my rice range. I'm actually planning on setting them up like grab-and-go...

    So really, how much does size matter?

    Had used a few Panasonic bridge cameras which were close to the size of the G1 I got, so I was comfortable and familiar with that. But the main factor for me was the fascination that you could use so many different - and sometimes really old - lens formats on a modern digital body. While I like...

    Gave in to the temptation and received a beautiful Tokina AT-X 90/2.5 macro with 1:1 extender today.

    Lets see your creamy BOKEH Please :)

    May we also post really bad pictures? Work in progress: Tried using a recently acquired Panagor 90/2.5 macro without tripod and without my eyeglasses - on a windy day. Clearly an underperformance on the operator side, I am sure the lens can do much more.

    Carved tree stump in a friend's backyard. Taken with GX7 and FD 55/1.2, here at 2.8. A bit more clarity, vibrance, contras, and sharpening added on the Ipad. And no, the wood is not painted purple, lots of fringing with that lens...
