Thanks guys.

I first discovered photos not showing elsewhere, then realised they're all missing, then they all came back apart from the blessed squirrels.

So I've reposted those. :thinking:

Hi all, have been using a G80 and 100-400 whilst on holiday. I have been liking the combination and seems to have given me some good results, I shall post some pics at some point. This has left me wondering as my 7d2 and 150-600 can be too heavy for me.

I am wondering about the g9 over the g80. So a few questions if I may.

How much better is the
evf
battery life
fps with continuous autofocus

is iq any better?

The EVF is a vast improvement over the G80, cant say a lot about battery life because i used to go out take upto 300 shots and still have power left, i think i used about 8 fps, the IQ is better.

The reason i sold mine was the EM1MK11 gave better focusing on BIF, not saying the G9 is rubbish just the Olympus is better.

Perhaps the word "better" should be changed to "different". I tried the Olympus when I was choosing a body to go with the 100-400 and I didn't like it. I much preferred the G9 and haven't found any reason to regret that.

Thanks for the suggestion but i will stick with better, i found it better before the last update and since the 3.1 update it runs rings around the G9 for BIF shots, its far less likely to move from the subject onto cluttered backgrounds, its so much quicker and accurate on birds coming towards me.

In lots of ways my G80 is better for sticking with subjects than the G9 was, i spent a lot of time on the G9 but you have just too many variations in the focus settings IMO Panasonic overcomplicated it with the focusing options.

But hey every one to their own as they say

Three shots in defense of the G80, depending on your subjects the G9 can sometimes not be a lot better, these shots were on the G80

Thanks for the info there, the olympus had crossed my mind, from having a brief play with an em1 2 I found I didn't like the menu style, preferring the panasonic. I have discovered that the g80 has an option to speed up the af which seems to also do a reasonable job. I would prefer a joystick for focus point selection, I find I can't always get the buttons right on the 4way pad.
