Re: Panasonic launch the G9 and 200mm f2.8 lens

Interesting DPreview review of the G9 AF - although they like the AF for most uses they go on to say:

Re: Camera / Lens range as in distance...

That is the best way to get round distance - have a good sized flock of birds. One on its own cropped would not look much. Think you've got a couple of Dunlin in there too.

Re: Camera / Lens range as in distance...

I don't think it's anything to do with money. You've got a great setup there and it's 800mm equivalent. It's all down to distance. I try and stop myself taking distant birds now, but I still cull...

Re: Olympus Survey

Will they accept the double discount? I had assumed that it would be one or the other?

Re: Firmware Update

Yes Brian. Just thought it might save someone here possibly spoiling their setup if using the 100-400mm. I'd like to try it with the 300mm f4 but I'm not going to take the risk until we know more as...

Re: Firmware Update

If you've got the Panasonic 100-400mm lens you might want to hold off doing this update as there might be a problem when using this lens.

This is being discussed on the E-M1 II Facebook page.

Re: ID please :)

That's what I used before the 300mm and the Panasonic 100-400mm were available, but it's not long enough for birds except for the few times when you can get really close.

Re: Panasonic launch the G9 and 200mm f2.8 lens

You would think it should work the same as the Pana 100-400mm does. Lens IS is fine or IBIS is fine, but it won't sync the two like it does on later Pana bodies.

Re: Panasonic launch the G9 and 200mm f2.8 lens

It looks like it would probably fit, but the extra converter contacts are in a different position from the Olympus ones so the camera would probably not know it was fitted and so would not adjust...

Re: Time to say goodbye ?

To get the best performance then it is best to use a faster UHS-II card in Slot 1.

It does have a bigger buffer and and should work OK with short bursts with a slower card. I've tried an older...

Re: Time to say goodbye ?

I don't understand this? I've never seen that. Did you use a very slow card? Also the Mark 2 will take a while to get the best from it with so many options and tweaks available.
