    Thanks Dale. Unfortunately, I don't have as much time for photography as I used to, but walking to work, wherever I am in the world, getting lost and getting late more often than not, helps uncover new treasures now and then.

    I understand, Jørgen. It's the same for me. But you're still producing really wonderful images as always.

    I'm jealous of your recent time in Burma. I've not been there for a while. In fact, my working trips there, to some amazing areas in Burma, were mostly sans photo gear (other than a P&S digital Elph) quite some time back. That actually caused me to get back into this wallet-sucking activity, after work and life kept me from photography for quiet a while.

    Wonderful people, wonderful photo opportunities in S.E. Asia. One only needs an endless supply of time.

    Jorgen Udvang, it seems like the 75mm f1.8 is indeed one of your most used lens on your GH3

    Indeed, and there are 3 reasons for that:

    - I like the focal length
    - The 75mm is as close to perfect as I require from a lens
    - I prefer shooting with primes, and it's the only native prime I own for m4/3. That will hopefully change soon

    Ah, but there is a "Fun with Panasonic GH3" thread (which I didn't realise when I started this one). However, the GH3 is such a unique, excellent camera that it deserves a thread with it's own unique name, don't you think?

    If anything, the threads should be merged. Is it possible to do that?

    Thank you, Kit. Most from this last batch were from Yangon, and I will be seeing a lot of that city the coming year. An ebook sounds like an interesting challenge. Something to consider

    Definitely loving the overall resolution and color of the Oly 75mm 1.8

    100% crops from the GH3 are better than I've seen for any other m4/3 lens.

    I agree, I love the rendering of this lens.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    I tried the X-T1 side-by-side with my GH3 today. The Fuji is a nice, little camera, and I love the old style user interface. But apart from that, and an obvious hike in image quality, particularly at high ISO, the GH3 has better ergonomics, faster AF and obviously unrivaled video quality. As a work tool for what I do, the GH3 is the winner. Good for me

    Hi Jorgen, this is indeed very interesting that you have tried the new X-T1 and found the AF is not even as fast as the ancient GH3!!

    Does this mean that Fujis new faster AF is not the "world's fastest AF"???

    Don't know. I may even be wrong. I used the two cameras side-by-side in a somewhat sparsely lit camera shop. Also, the Fuji had the kit zoom with a max aperture of f/2.8 mounted while I used the 75mm f/1.8 on the Panasonic. However, the Panasonic gave a feeling of immediately getting there, while the Fuji kind of hesitated. The difference turned even more in the GH3's favour when trying to focus at low contrast objects, where the Fuji didn't respond at all.

    What it boils down to is that these two cameras are made with totally different philosophies behind them. The Fuji may focus fastest under the right conditions, and it's a dream to use for slower paced photography. The GH3 is a machine with little or no personality. It simply does the job without further ado. I've compared it to the D3X (which I don't own) before and that comparison is still valid. It's a somewhat misunderstood camera that will do the job whatever the circumstances are. For a romantic holiday to a tropical island, I would choose the Fuji.

    wow, thanks for the report. I am simply adoring my E-M1 for totally mind blowing AF locking speeds. I wonder if there is a site where they compare the likes of the Xt1, EM-1 and GX7 for mirror less AF performance.

    Remember that the E-M1 has one big advantage over the GH3: Phase Detect AF, which makes continuous AF much faster, better, more reliable etc.

    This scene totally made my day; a mother helping her sons with their homework outside their modest dwellings in Yangon. The black buckets on the wall are the fire extinguishers. The photo is taken some 20 meters from the train photo above.

    Thank you Godfrey. Having used this camera for a while, I've had a few positive surprises, the most significant being how the images changes character in a positive way at higher ISO values. The grain that is visible, particularly at 1600 and 3200 ISO, adds to the images and gives them more punch with rich, saturated colours without losing much detail at all. For someone like me, who prefer photos that tell a story and have a life on their own, that's an incredible bonus, and I much prefer this compared to the more "sterile" output from some other cameras.

    getDPI ate my post AGAIN (timed out); damn, that frustrates me. I was researching, dammit.

    Jørgen you wrote:

    I fond exactly the same. I sold none, because I had high hopes for the X-E1/2, but their video sucks. So, I ordered a G6 and I expect it will be very much like what you wrote about the GH3.

    I forget it too all the time.

    Which body? The G6? I just bought the G5 for a friend of mine. Less than $500 with a lens, and it's fantastic. The G6 is apparently much better. Some Panasonic managers called it the GH2.5 in an interview. That says a lot. Unfortunately, I don't need one, having the GH1, the GH2 and the GH3

    Yes, the G6. It's so inexpensive now from B&H and I have most of the primes... so I all report back when it arrives. All the GHs, eh? That's a lot of GH!

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    "Burmese sunset" is my fave in that group. She is dressed like a nun, but with that hair, she can't be one, can she? A lovely attitude caught perfectly.

    Re, G6; should arrive soon. Over at personal-view, there are 43 pages of posts... and most are praising the standard SOOC video, so this is a very good sign!

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    Thank you, Kit,
    In some Buddhist countries, Myanmar and Vietnam that I'm aware of, but there are probably others, women who participate actively and organised at the temples often wear a dark brown outfit when visiting sacred places, in this case the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. In Myanmar, female monks wear a pink robe. In other countries, like Thailand, female devotees as well as monks wear an all white outfit. In Thailand however, female monks are not called monks in the local language, and very few of them obtain the right to wear the "real" monk outfit, which in Thailand is mostly bright orange and sometimes ocher yellow.

    Unfortunately, I don't know much about these things, but with regular visits to Myanmar, a country where the devotion to Buddhism is particularly strong, I hope to earn more knowledge if time permits.

    It's kind of fun having been able to follow a camera series from the outset, and since the very worn GH1 has little monetary value and the GH2 is needed as backup, I see no reason to sell any of them. I plan to buy the GH4 as well obviously, but will probably wait until the price has fallen somewhat

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    This is no doubt OT, but your remarks re. monk's and nun's dress resonates with me (I regularly attend monasteries in Australia and Malaysia for both the Buddhist workshops that I co-present with an ex-monk colleague and for self-retreats). And the vinaya (the rules) vary enormously from country to country. This part of this thread is probably of no interest except to us, but I will be paying attention to your Myanmar visits, for sure. The locals' devotion is extremely moving, and many of your photographs reveal this well.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    Jørgen, the G6 arrived yesterday; I already have two GX-7s and a GX-1, but the G6 is—well, I am looking for superlatives. First (and this is amazing to me), and speaking about video, my iPhone can control every aspect of shooting solo that I need. And the little pancake 17/2.8 (so, 34mm EFOV) is perfect for the kind of demo videos I shoot, but the ETC control means that this same lens behaves as a 68mm lens for head and shoulder interview-type footage. I had forgotten this; it works perfectly.

    And because I am using pinpoint AF, the image is magnified momentarily—so I can be sure that I (or an interviewee) is in perfect focus before I roll.

    And the thing is tiny; no reviews has mentioned this, and it feels fantastic in the hand. There's more but I don't want to clog this thread (and the video is superb, too).

    The fact that it's so tiny but still maintains the ergonomics of a large DSLR is one thing that really sets the G6 apart from the crowd. On paper, it isn't much smaller than a Nikon D5300, but in reality... WOW. Still, direct control buttons, viewfinder, live view and not least video quality are oceans ahead. I'm looking forward to read about your experiences.

    Does it use the same batteries as the GX7?

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    I have found the interface more intuitive than the two Fuji X-E bodies (and more Fn buttons), actually, and that's unexpected. OTOH, the G6 body is not waterproof, but I do not need that presently. I will take an image of it with the Oly pancake (which for video and small jpegs is a 34 and a 68mm EFOV; how madly handy that will become on set). The package is amazingly compact yet, as you say, button placement and operation is a piece of cake.

    No re. the batteries: different to G-7's (quite a bit bigger) and not the same as the GX1's either. OTOH, this means easy recharging at the end of the day, because I can change all batteries at once. Now that I have this body and the GX-7s side by side, I am really surprised that the G6 has not got more traction in the market. With its all-metal body the GX-7 feel more solid, but the G6 is lighter and yet feels really well made. I am selling the two Fujis today (the video—there's no comparison). And price-wise there's no comparison, yet the sensor is identical (I just tried the peaking function and it works perfectly, though I find the magnified view just as effective for me, and that's another advantage over the GH-3 for legacy lenses, I feel).

    Perhaps later this year I will get a FF mirrorless, but the only Sony that grabs me (RX1) does not have a built-in viewfinder and the clip-on ones don't work for me. IF a Sony RX comes out with a built-in finder (even if its 2cm taller) and a 45–50mm lens, then I will reconsider.

    Re: The Ancient GH3

    Still working on getting used to it, but in wide open spaces, w/enough distance, I'm really starting to like it.

    These were taken w/in a mile of each other, in under 30 min, IIRC.
