  1. I had trouble using an adapter in my GX80 - I suspect the adapter had a speed limit but dont know.
  2. Apart from the no crop, are there many other advantages over the GX80? I noticed that Olympus have a cashback offer on it in the UK (£85) which brings it down to about £400
  3. In case anyone is looking for a GH5, this is the cheapest it has been in the UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N7QFHF8/ref=asc_df_B01N7QFHF840023911?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=cpbcouk-21&linkCode=df0&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B01N7QFHF8&th=1 The GH5S: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078WWG2VC/ref=psdc_430660031_t1_B01N7QFHF8
  4. Thanks Andrew - love your reviews and the forum. I would be interested in your views of the GX9 compared to the GX80 - do you gain much apart from increased resolution? Would be interested to see how you get on with manual lenses - I have recently re-discovered the GX80 using some old legacy OM lenses I have acquired and loving it. The 50 1.8 particularly is very sharp. I am also trying the 28 f2.8 macro and 135 f3.5 which although very long, has a lovely character. This is from the GX80 with the 50mm f/1.8 OM F.Zuiko I would also be interested in your thoughts on the new L.Monochrome D mode for video as well as photo (I love the L.Monochrome mode on the GX80).
  5. Yes but it doesn't have DPAF... Do we know if it is a technical limitation or just Canon being Canon?
  6. Thanks mercer. I also think the L monochrome mode has a great film look to it. I have an old Olympus OM SP SLR which I must load up with some film and see how it compares! No video yet, sorry.
  7. Some great examples on this thread; learning a lot. I love B&W and have been playing with the L Monochrome mode on my GX80:
  8. Hi folks Just spotted that Sony A7S is on a lightning deal on Amazon UK and after cashback is only £871 (for the next 3.4 hrs!) for anyone on the look out for one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00KPV1RW4?tag=ho01f-21
  9. Looking forward to the full review on this. Andrew, how is the Olympus 25 1.2 on the GH5? I saw a stills review of that lens and it looks amazing!
  10. The 42.5 1.2? That looks an amazing lens but then it is £1049. I will see how I get on with M43 for a few months I think but it certainly is desirable! Thanks - do you know if I remove the rubber back from the 17-55 if it can still be used on the Canon body? If not does it go back on ok? If so I will probably stick with the 17-55 over the Sigma 18-35 especially since you gain a stop. Thanks for the advice on which speedbooster - seems the .71 version is the best bet. Nice work Thanks also for the advice, I am thinking that I would like at least one fast native lens and the 25.17 is pretty cheap. I think I will start there and see how I get on.
  11. Hi folks I recently purchased the double GX80 with the 12-32 and 35-100 lenses and now I would like to look at my options for other lenses, especially low light primes. I would be grateful for any advice. I have been looking at the Panny 25 1.7 which is pretty cheap or the (probably better) 25 1.4. Obviously theses the advantage of being a native lens and pretty small/light. I bought the M43 because I have only used Canon and wanted to find out more about M43 as a forerunner to possibly moving to the GH5 at some point. I also got it because of the size and weight advantage for days out etc. However, I have also been wondering about buying a Metabones speed booster in order to use my Canon lenses (I also have a Canon 750d with the EF-S 18-135, EF-S 17-55 2.8, EF 100 macro 2.8 and EF 50 1.4) My concerns are - the speed booster is fairly expensive and I cannot use my EF-S lenses (is this the case?) I was wondering if I should just sell my EF-S 17-55 2.8, buy the Sigma 18-35 1.8 and a speedbooster? If I get the 0.64xl I also read that APS-C lenses might vignette in photo mode or 1080p so is it best to get the .71 version? If so will this be the best choice if I move to the GH5 at some point? I would be grateful for any views on this, especially on the Panny 25 1.4 or whether I should invest in the 0.71 speedboster to use my Canon EF 50.14 and other EF (or possibly EF-S) lenses. Many thanks in advance.
