Hmmm ... I don't think I can help with this, unless ...Mine shows exposure in aperture but not when the shutter is half pressed and you recompose but my GX9 does. It definitely doesn't give DoF preview. In manual all is good.
I think they're supposed to be distracting, forcing you to rethink your EV. I see them and go -1/3 or - 2/3 and they disappear. But I tend to prefer under rather than over exposed.I'm not a big fan of zebras as I find it too distracting. I have peaking on though.
Interesting, however I'm sure I've read somewhere that the kit lens exceeds the Leica in certain circumstances?Only trouble is...i want even more image quality now..................Im starting to look at a G9/GH5 coupled to the Leica 12-60mm, which would produce even better butterfly images, than my newly acquired G7/panny 12-60mm.........G.A.S. aint that a biatch.
Ive checked out a few reviews, an watched several youtube vids, an they all say the same.................the Leica 12-60mm beats the Lumix 12-60mm, all day long.Interesting, however I'm sure I've read somewhere that the kit lens exceeds the Leica in certain circumstances?
I’ve owned the Oly 12-40 and PL 12-60. In real terms, I don’t think there’s much in it in IQ, especially stopped down for things like landscapes. However, I never really warmed to the PL 12-60 as a walkabout lens for some reason. I think it was because it’s really only f2.8 at 12mm, and I much preferred having the option of f2.8 throughout the zoom range with the Oly 12-40.Opinions please..... 12-35, 12-60 2.8-4 or 12-60 3.5-5.6 vs the 12-40 Oly which I’ve owned before.
Any real world experience of these please?
My go to video when GAS strikesI'm sure any of these lenses are excellent. Looking at some the incredible photos on Flickr with any lens reminds me of the importance of eye over gear... even the 12-60 variable aperture kit lens is capable of amazing shots. Looking through Flickr galleries keeps me grounded whenever the GAS strikes [mind you, it doesn't work haha]
Well are you letting us knowfollowing up on my earlier posts I have just done a side by side comparison a Nikon d3s with sigma 150-600 C AND a Panasonic g80 with pl100-400 both hand held , both post processed exactly the same . I can't really see any significant difference in the finished files , initially the MFT RAW file was considerably noisier but Both shots have had the same de-noise applied to them .I'll let on which is which later . based on this is it worth spending a pile of hard come by cash on up grading View attachment 248994 View attachment 248995
The top one is the Nikon mike, I have now returned the camera though as after a couple of hours with it I really cannot see a A/F advantage , I will be looking into either a Olympus or Panasonic upgrade once fully fit again though .Well are you letting us know
I love how versatile the 100-400 is, taken with it.
never used the newer sensor but I know I was pleased enough with the SOOC jpegs from the G80, posted some on here when I first got it. The EVF is pretty good, apart from when it lags for slower SS, no idea why they do that. They're not the only ones, seems to be an evf thing - I don't want to see the blurring effect of long exposures when I move a mmBought a G80 on Wednesday, read good things about them on this thread from satisfied users.
Wanted something for wetter days that didn't suit my non weather resistant GX9's
Do prefer the smaller rangefinder style model which will still be my camera of choice, but handy to have the new one.
Early impressions are that the sooc jpegs are definitely nicer in colour and contrast from the GX9..
Not sure if its the newer sensor or processing algorithms, but I use raw anyway most of the time so its not an issue.
Undecided about the different type of rear screen, pros and cons for both designs
EVF definitely nicer on the G80, why they didn't use that in the newer GX9 I will never know.
Used to the menu structure which is handy so it will do for me.
Overall i'm impressed, no such thing as the perfect camera, but these recent Panasonics suit me very nicelynever used the newer sensor but I know I was pleased enough with the SOOC jpegs from the G80, posted some on here when I first got it.

I think I almost always set exp comp to -2/3 or so when shooting in any auto or semi auto modes. That 8-18 should be a fun lensOverall i'm impressed, no such thing as the perfect camera, but these recent Panasonics suit me very nicely
Think it overexposes slightly compared to the GX9, not exactly a problem and just dial it down a third of a stop
That's it for my spending for a while, got this and a 8-18mm from the proceeds of my X-Pro2 and 10-24.
Spent the rest on Eurostar tickets, December dates just went on sale and Strasbourg Christmas market looks very nice.
