    Thank you for the review Daniel, it is both well written and informative, a sadly rare combination. I have one question about the G9: you don’t mention the pincushion distortion in the EVF. I assume this is because either it doesn’t bother you, or it has been wildly exaggerated by…

    Dan - I called the shop in Boseman. I don't know who it was that answered. Thanks very much for the information. Which of the teleconverters would be the most useful? I assume the 1.4 would result in sharper images?

    I've just bought the G9. It's a fabulous camera - ergonomically one of the best I've ever used and I've used most marques. So I am talking about this as someone who is experienced and reinvested in the MFT system. Your lens comparisons are either misguided or disingenuous. Comparing a…

    Hello Dan, At Bosque last week I set my G9 up at the flats at temps below freezing and the preview lit up but it would not fire. There was one frame grabbed out of multiple shutter pressings. Later it worked fine. Tried the 2nd day, same story, later worked…

    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…
