The wife and I have been in Galveston for the past three weeks on vacation. I picked up the new GX85 just a few days before we left. Since we drove I was able to pack a couple of bags of camera gear. This wasn't (just) a photographic trip - mostly a sit at the beach/bar/beach/coffee shop/beach/bar... type of trip, but a month is a long time to not have a choice of camera gear to play with... My walk about bag was the Tenba Cooper 8 - just the right size for the GX85 with either the Panny 7-14/f4 or the 12-35/f2.8 mounted with the 35-100/f2.8 in the next compartment. I slipped the Panny 20/1.7 under the rain shield, along with 4 extra batteries and some cleaning cloth. I also brought the GX7 as a backup along with the 100-300 to play with in another bag. The most notable new features of the GX85 are the stabilization along with the DFD focusing shared with the GX8 (and others) - there are other things that's notable about the GX85 but those two have stood out in my usage. So without further ado, here are some shots from our trip: To start with, the 7-14 f/4 is a wonderfully small, sharp lens - focuses fast and is a blast to shoot with. One of the places where having an ultra wide mounted was most advantageous was at the Bishop's Palace - a late 19th century magnificent home you can tour for a few dollars. ISO performance of the GX85 seems better than the GX7 or the E-M5 - this is at ISO 3200 So how well does the new IBIS work? Well, here's a 1/2s hand held shot.. Not long enough shutter speed to be impressed? Here's a 1 second hand held shot: And a final shot with the 7-14 Both of the previous shots are with the 7-14 f/4 so this is not with the even better dual IS system! Not to be left out, here are some with the 35-100 f/2.8 Full moon and summer solstice Replacing a broken warning sign We threw some food out to the birds and started a fight! And finally, some with the 12-35 f/2.8 Beautiful sunsets nearly every night Who says you need a long lens to take BIF shots? 12-35 f/2.8 Sister-n-law with her boy friend and finally, me UPDATE: Here are a few extra shots I love the harbor tours - an hour or more of just relaxing with the breeze in you face. The boat captain followed a couple of fishing boats around so we could see some Dolphins. While those are cool, I get a kick out of seeing the feeding frenzy of the birds! 35-100 We did a lot of this... 7-14 @7mm We also did a lot of this and this.... a selfie Hope you enjoyed sharing some of our vacation memories with us.
