    No, I was very angry about the SS issue and I will not be buying any more SS affected cameras. Not knowing what current or future native lenses may be affected is bad enough but not knowing what legacy lenses may be affected was another kick in the teeth. I was amazed when my Rokkor 50mm f1.2 was clearly affected.

    Avoiding the affected shutter speed range just isn't an option for me and whilst switching to the electronic shutter fixes the problem in a lot of instances it can create banding under artificial lighting which is an issue for me. So all in all I will not entertain another SS affected body, not after being stung by my experiences with the otherwise very nice G7 and GX7.

    PS.
    I do fancy a 100-300mm :D I've been using my 45-150mm but 150mm is very limiting for birds even when cropping to 100%.

    A few G80 shots from the past week, first 3 shot with the 100-300, just trying a bit of variety using it, last one with the 25 1.7

    This was shot at 223mm indoors, 1/30th hand held, ISO 1250 - the lens OIS on the mk1 isn't bad, this lens could well be used for indoor portraits at 100mm

    Apparently this Robin is a bit of a character around the Daisy Nook country park, he loved posing for me.

    Chaffinch?


    This is single frame grab taken from Panasonic G80 4K footage, it was the only way to catch this bird (which i think is a Chaffinch?) because it was moving around to fast.

    Same details as previous image but at 800 ISO

    It’s actually a Nuthatch but nice shot.

    Yeah, there's similarities to the Chaffy, but if you look at the one I photographed yesterday, they don't have the black band around the eyes, the eyes are a little different too and the Chaffy's head is ... 'rounder'

    Also spotted the first toy Kite around here of Spring:
