    I have both the LUMIX G9 and the Sony A9 and use the best quality, native lenses available for each system. The sensor sizes, in terms of resolution, are as near as you’ll currently get - 20 megapixels for the LUMIX and 24 for the Sony - but, to my…

    Like you and many of your readers, I invested in the G9 and the Leica badged lenses, including the superb 200mm f2.8 and both teleconverters, to pursue my love of wildlife photography, especially involving birds, and to do so with a more easily manageable system in terms of bulk and…

  • Lumix Camera Firmware​ Updates

    Panasonic just released new firmware updates to several of their cameras. Those cameras are the Lumix GH5s-GH5-G9-G90-G80-GX9. Unfortunately, the main reason for this update seems to be mostly for making these cameras work seamlessly with the new Leica 10-25mm F/1.7 zoom. That’s a good thing but I was hoping for…
