    Thanks for the terrific article Dan. I saw your FB post. I know that you already know this, but if you don't feed trolls, they go away. ;-). Regarding these lenses, I am very tempted by the 50-200 with the 1.4x. I just like the aded flexibility of a zoom.…

  • christian fuerst says:

    I fully agree with Dan's judgement ragarding the Leica-Lenses. As a mainly stills photographer I also prefer the G9 to the GH5 which up to now serves as a backup-camera body for "just in case". ergonomically speaking the G9 is simply the best camera I ever used in my photographic…

    So far, I have simply found no good reason to go back to full frame. I put a lot of time in researching m4/ blogs like this one (thank you Daniel), and got a feel for who was using the equipment effectively. Then I rented it...and it outperformed the full…

    Thanks for the reply. I hope they do keep a smaller body, eg G80, current: as they make for a compact solution when travelling and are a bit friendlier on the wallet. The GH5 and G9 are just that much larger and more expensive. Small trickle down upgrades would be…

    wow thanks for this blog, so informative. After reading it through I went out this morning with my Olympus EM1ii and a 45-150 zoom. Got to where the dolphins were playing. Turned camera to P nice exposure but too slow, so I upped the ISO from 200 to 400 and…

  • Leica Magic With A Lumix Mount: The 200mm and 50-200mm Lenses

    Leica magic with a Lumix mount—the 200mm and 50-200mm lenses have been part of a very exciting year for Panasonic and the Micro Four Thirds category of cameras. I had to check Mylio to see exactly when I first started shooting these two new Leica lenses, and I was surprised to…

  • Good News for Micro Four Thirds

    There’s more good new for Micro Four Thirds shooters. In a Photo Gear News interview, from the Marketing Director of Lumix in the UK, we’re told there is no way Panasonic is giving up on MFT. The simple reason being that MFT and APS-C, smaller sensor cameras, make up 70% of…

  • Google Supports Protecting Photographers’ Pictures

    Google Supports Protecting Photographers’ Pictures One of the downsides to sharing your pictures on the web is how easy it is for them to go astray. With digital capture I’ve always said, “Easy come, easy go,” and that applies to the web as much as it does to photos on…

  • The State of Micro Four Thirds

    With this week’s announcement of Panasonic jumping into full-frame cameras, I’ve heard lots of MFT enthusiasts worrying about where MFT may or may not be heading. This move is one I would have never predicted, but then I do my best to never say never. Regarding where it’s all going,…
