    Re: Getting to know the G3

    This post was really helpful to me. I've ordered a black G3 and it should arrive tomorrow along with the leicasonic 25mm 1.4. Can't wait to start shooting with this combo!

    Newly acquired G3: 25/1.4 PL (pics 1,2) 20/1.7 (pics 3,4). Camera and lenses just out of their boxes.

    Re: Getting to know the G3

    I took my G3s to another live music event last night. Here's an example of a shot with the Lumix 100-300 f4-5.6 at iso6400:

    I am continually impressed with what this little sensor can do at high iso levels. Of course there's noise, but minor post-processing controls it nicely, especially starting with a raw file. The color balance was very difficult in this venue, due to LED lighting. Anyone know a fix for that? I shot at fixed white balance, set for tungsten. Some images were so exclusively saturated in blue or purple as to be useless.

    Many more images and a short video of my drive home through the snow may be found here:

    Re: Getting to know the G3

    I am getting a lot of use from the G3 for musical performances. This one was a recording session with Furnace Mountain Band:

    Re: Getting to know the G3

    Yesterday, I decided to shoot with the 14mm f2.5 on my G3. I am WA-challenged, and in winter where I live, nice wide scenes are hard to find. I did my best.
