I have had the lens now for a few months and love it. Images are quite sharp and it has good color rendition. Really cannot go wrong with that lens. I opted for it over the Panasonic 100-400 as it is easier to hike around without much weight.
Thanks. I will try it both ways. My trip last week to shoot dark sky shots got cancelled due to us having extensive flooding where I live. When things get back to normal I hope to head out for some shooting.
A wonderful shot of the night sky and the Grand Canyon...out of curiosity do you remember what settings you had the G9 set on? I hope to get out soon with my G9 to do some dark sky images. Anyway, well done!
Ok, in the next few weeks I am going out to some dark sky areas and I hope to shoot some astro-landscapes with my G9. My question is do you leave the stabilization on or shut it off on this camera? Reason I am asking I though I had read somewhere that there was no need to turn it off? That...
My G9 does this too with the 100-300 ii G lens.
A couple of things that help is to focus first on something in the foreground of the subject you are shooting. Then focus on your subject. Many times this trick will then focus correctly on the bird or whatever you are trying to shoot. Second, try...
Blurb offers choices for creating your photo book any style you want. It takes a little time to learn their software but once you get it the program works well. Also, for cheap, Walgreens drug stores offer book options as well.
I really have not yet had a chance to see how good the b&w settings are for the Panasonic G9 as I just got it. I did notice it how some new b&w options for shooting images in grayscale. I hope to test them out soon. Maybe someone else using the G9 has used them and can elaborate about the new...
Well, I bit the bullet and bought a Panasonic G9...after much research I think it has a lot of the things I am looking for in a camera at this time. Plus, the fact it has such a good price right now did not hurt. It should arrive this week so I will know whether or not I made a right choice...
I most likely will get the zoom lens for now as it is more versatile. I like the Sigma for its low light ability. I have seen some really awesome pics taken with that lens. It is one of those lens that just has a great buttery image.
Don't have any links I just remember while researching the G9 I had come across it somewhere.
Anyway, I have decided to go ahead and get a G9. My decision now is whether to get it with the kit lens or a Sigma 16/1.4.
Ok...I have finally decided that I am getting the G9 with the kit lens 12-60/2.8-4 or with the Sigma 16/1.4 lens. I am having a hard time deciding so would like to hear thoughts from other G9 users. Which would you choose and why? Maybe hearing from other users will make my decision quicker. :)
Any inside information? I have heard something about a new OM-D-E-5 Mark III with 20mp?? I am definitely going to purchase a new faster camera at some point either sooner or later. Right now I can use my current set-up and just have patience if something is coming I know I would love.
Currently I am using the Olympus 75-300 ii lens with my OM-D-E10 camera. While I can get some good shots out of it I also lose a lot due to AF issues, especially in contrasty and lower light. I am looking to add maybe the Panasonic 100-300ii for WR with a camera that offers more chances to...
Yes, I too was looking at the G9 as an option, in case the EM5 MII was not appropriate. I know a person who has the new Sony A6400 and raves about its AF abilities. Maybe I will take a look at one of those, although I would like to stay with m4/3rds if possible.
