  1. $1000 for a monitor stand... that tells you all you need to know about Apple.
  2. I had trouble using an adapter in my GX80 - I suspect the adapter had a speed limit but dont know.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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).
  6. Yes but it doesn't have DPAF... Do we know if it is a technical limitation or just Canon being Canon?
  7. 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.
  8. 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:
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Thanks - really good points. Is the IBIS as good in the G80?
  14. Thinking about getting the GX80 (its pretty cheap at the moment in the UK with the cashback). Just wondering if I should fork out more for the G80 (Im not too worried about audio in). edit - apols - just seen the discussion here
  15. Got to say this looks fantastic, amazing detail, contrast, colour (skin tones) and really well shot!
  16. really why is that? I thought you could mount EF-S on FF but they will vignette?
  17. Good honest review Andrew - thanks. looking forward to part 2. Interested to know if the heat issue could be mitigated by swapping batteries or using an external power source.
  18. Interesting samples videos. The ones from York look a bit overexposed so it looks very video.
  19. Some lovely images - the waterfall shot is stunning, great light and still sharp in slow mo.
