    I went to see Phantogram in concert last night and brought my G5 with PL25 on it. With pare battery in the pocket, it's a very light and compact setup but fully functional. I was able to enjoy the concert without the camera getting in the way. Shot in manual and ISO set at 1600. Concert lighting was very challenging and made the G5's white balance go a little crazy. I was not too worried about WB, easily fixed in post. I focused more on lighting and composition/timing of the shot. All shots processed through Lightroom 4. Overall I find the results quite satisfactory.

    Very impressive Vince!
    I love this camera as well. The best body for it's price and without compromises. Very small and light for camera with EVF and ergonomics just excellent, articulation screen, fully silent shutter and focus point control on LCD when you using EVF.
    Very simple and responsible and the best companion if you not sure to shoot or not to shoot:)
    I have three bodies but almost always my hand want to take G5, believe you or not:)

    Solid set Vin! I know a longer lens might be restricted, I wonder if you brought along the 75, what then would turn out... whew!

    Dave I actually DID bring my Oly 75! It never came out of the bag. I was in the first row and the PL25 had the perfect FL for the shoot in my mind. The Oly 75 would be too long and I wasn't looking to do head shots. :) I wanted to capture the atmosphere and energy of the performance.

    Very nice set, looks great!
     
  6. Very impressive. I think that maybe the second and the very last are my favourites.

    It is good as it is Vin... share some more!

    Sometimes, even with an interchangeable lens system, I end up using just one lens for the whole shoot.

    Very nice and sharp. 25/1.4 is probably the best native lens for this setting.
    Can I ask you if the colors in photos 2 and 5 were like that live or you did something in post to get that look?
    Thanks.

    Dave I had the 75 in Laura's purse. She's shooting a G3 + Panny 20mm combo. Then the guy behind us had EM5 + Oly 45. A lot of m4/3 in one place! lol

    Yes they were all adjusted in post, especially 2. I wanted it to look like he was playing in front of the sun!

    How did that cope compared to your G5&25mm?

    I have not seen her set yet, but in the past the G3 high ISO performance is quite similar to my G5's.
