Not knowing an opportunity was upcoming, I allowed a retired photographer friend with no digital gear to borrow my G5, FL-600R, 12-35mm, and 75mm lenses for a week so he can fly out to take pictures at his daughter's wedding where his isn't the official photographer. He's a good friend and I wanted him to have some fun with the new stuff and he's eminently trustworthy. HOWEVER: since I made that promise, another photog friend got me an "All Access" pass to a hot air balloon festival coming up next weekend. I can wander around everywhere, talk to folks, get close to the flying machines and so forth. FUN! But I like to shoot two cams, dang it. I still have the GX1 with LVF2 and I will shoot the 35-100mm f/2.8 on it -- but what else to use? I have three choices: Buy another body -- not really an option right now. Use my "vintage" G1 that's in my camera collection Use my "vintage" E-P1 that's in my camera collection Since it'll all be in daylight so it'll be bright the two "vintage" cameras will do fine. So which one? I'm going with the G1 because: Much better controls overall Feels better in the hand Has a viewfinder I will probably shoot the 7-14mm on the G1. I did some single frame and hand-held HDR tests in the backyard yesterday and I'm actually impressed -- the old G1 can do the job. Of course I'll post anything worthwhile I get next weekend here on the board. Who else still rocks an old G1? I have to say, the ergonomics are still brilliant n this first-of-its-kind mu-43 cam.
