    Phil,

    fully agree!

    I just yesterday made the experience again that what is the greatest for one photographer is maybe only average for another while testing the GX7. This camera is praised so high and it is nice, but actually handling it and looking through the EVF turned me off. The camera feels cheap compared to the EM1 and the EVF does not even come close. Let alone ergonomics for my taste of the EM1 are MUCH better. And even size wise I do not feel the GX/ is much smaller while handling it or carrying it, especially when used with identical lenses. Actually the GX7 with kit zoom is too big for me to see an advantage size wise.

    But again this is just me and others feel different. Same is with GH3, which per se would be a great camera even for me, if there was not the EM1.

    Hope this helps to understand why I answered.

    Blogger Kirk Tuck has been praising the GH3 recently, and bought two of them for video production.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    Lot of lovely photos, Jorgen! I have no trouble with the notion that the GH3 is a delightful camera. Heck, even the G1 produced remarkable quality photos.

    There is much to like in most of these modern marvels. Whichever one does the job you want and makes you happy using it is all that matters ... After that, it's all in the photos. :-)

    All wonderful photos Jorgen!

    I think that the latest incarnations of all cameras up from M43 to FF produce pretty perfect results. So we do have a wide choice as photographers. Exciting times!

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    Thanks, Godfrey and Peter. It has indeed come to a point where feature set, lenses and ergonomics are the deciding factors for camera choice, like it used to be with film. The cameras all deliver image quality that is good enough for most of what photographers do.

    Lovely images, Jorgen. The portrait above is compelling.

    Also, it is the only one of any of the usual suspects that will shoot video non-stop for long periods of time (e.g. up to two hours, AVHCD).
    The GX7, my preferred µ4/3rds body, will shoot AVCHD video until the card is full. Only MPEG4 files are limited to just under 30', and that's a limitation of the file type, I understand (4Gb limit, from memory). I use two GX7s and a GX1 for video shoots and they perform well, and the Wasabi batteries I use allow over 1.5 hours continuous shooting.

    I agree with other's sentiments re. these cameras: they are good enough and now it's up to us. I have been looking at the A7, though, as I have some excellent Oly glass, and the µ4/3rd's crop factor takes much of the fun out of these.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    Thank you, Kit.

    I believe the 30' limit in some countries is also due to taxation rules. Above 30', cameras are taxed as video cameras, apparently at a higher rate.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    That's true too, Jorgen; two separate things as far as I know. In the EU zone (and in Australia) the old PAL/NTSC distinction is still present; in the PAL countries, a camera that can shoot videos longer than 30' is taxed at that higher rates (taxed as a camcorder, I believe).

    But the MPEG4 limit is something else, apparently to do with limitations of the codec's capacity to handle files larger than a certain size; I thought 4GB, but it might be 2GB; perhaps someone else can add something.

    In the case of my GX7 bodies, I bought US-sourced ones for exactly this reason. For my video work, 720p/30 is a perfect size/rate, and only the "NTSC" bodies have this frame rate (in addition to 60 and 24fps). It's a silly distinction in these days of HD. It beats me why the Australian A7 and A7r bodies have stuck to the PAL/NTSC divide; locally sourced cameras are 50 and 25 fps, meaning that to mesh with my other cameras, I will need to source one of these from the US or Canada, too.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    I'm increasingly impressed with what this camera can do. The magenta spots in this photo are reflections from the stage. This is a crop of around 50% of the photo, and I think I can print it at at least A3 format without visible noise. Will try that later today.

    I also made some video from this concert, and the quality is very, very impressive too.

    Thank you Kit and Rayyan. There are so many fascinating people to take photos of, so the trick is just having a lens that focuses, preferably fast

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    This is how an AF camera/lens combination should work: I lift the camera, the moment she's in the middle of the viewfinder (this is a crop), I push the shutter release all the way through and she's sharp in focus. When she's visible in the VF again, only a couple of seconds after I first saw her in the middle of the traffic, she's not, but covered by two cars, image gone forever. While many current camera/lens combos can do this, it's a first for me. Totally, 100% reliable.
