    Great! Now if only it wasn’t m43

    • Francisco Santos

      i think for videography where you dont need that fast lenses and that much out of focus are, m43 is ideal.. but as a photographic tool i wouldnt switch to m43

    • longzoom

      I, personally, wouldn’t compare it to anything. Imagine how many drawbacks are there to compare to 6X6? No, it is absolutely independent format with its own odds and evens.

    • Spy Black

      The right camera for the right situation. I have full frame, APS-C, m4/3, and 1-inch cameras. They all have a place in my shooting. My Panasonic GM5 is my m4/3 street camera, always with me at all times. Is your APS-C camera always with you at all times?

      • MdB

        You mean like a A5100, Coolpix A, Ricoh GR, Fuji X70, X100, Leica X etc that they couldn’t possibly be small enough to be with you at all times? I too have all those formats, but I don’t really see your case here.

        • Spy Black

          Actually, no, they’re all too big and/or too limited. I suppose you’re right tho, you can’t see my case here.

          • MdB

            “Actually, no, those cameras you listed are all too big and too limited”… ” for you”.

          • Spy Black

            Well OK, I’ll roll with that. However, try this with your A5100, let me know how it goes. 😉 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1f571221df7243ec3e89adb491ce9b94405b0b1e849641efd379c3091cc9c0b2.jpg

          • MdB

            Have you ever actually seen an A5100? Clearly not. GR is far more streamlined in a pocket AND a better Street cam AND still has much better controls, go figure.

          • Spy Black

            Yes I’ve handled a A5100. It would be a nice camera if it had an EVF. By the way, my camera is sitting ON TOP on my wallet. Yes, there’s TWO items in that pocket. Try that with your A5100. All those other cameras you mentioned are fine if you don’t want the option of lenses and other fields of view I suppose, and they’re all still larger, and some don’t have viewfinders.

          • MdB

            Well then you’ve never used a GR, it is certainly the most pocketable including the GM5 (which I’ve owned) and the controls are definitely more advanced.

            Honestly I don’t care what else was in your pocket. The difference to some other ILC’s is negligible yet the difference to fixed lens cameras is still considerable. You might think it is good having that camera wedged in there like that and lens budlging out, but definitely not my cup of tea.

            And what is that viewfinder worth? Worst EVF I’ve used in a decade and you want to spout it as soon kind of turning point? It’s bad. This GX80 looks much better. GM5 was a pretty average camera.

          • Spy Black

            Like I said, whatever floats your boat. My original comment was a reply that m4/3 sensors were not bad as the original poster said, and that my GM5 is always with me. And I mean always. So I’ll repeat, is your APS-C camera always with you?

            The viewfinder in the GM5 works just fine for me. especially in bright sunlight where screens become difficult, if not impossible, to view. For me the GM5 is a perfect balance of compactness, versatility, usability, and image quality. The GR, having a fixed focal length lens is, in my opinion, a limited use camera. The control surfaces aren’t impressive either, not sure where you’re gong with that. If I’m going to use a camera of that ilk, I’d use an X-100. Now, THAT, has usable control surfaces, AND a viewfinder, and is gorgeous to boot. It’s only Achilles heel, as far as I’m concerned, is the fixed focal length lens.

            The A5100 would be a great camera if it had an EVF. At it’s size I would rather use the slightly larger A6000, which has the EVF which should have been in the A5100 in the first place.

            But I repeat, whatever floats your boat. There is no right or wrong camera, only what works for you. You’ve been running quite a diatribe here about all this, I suggest instead you go grab your GR, or A5100, or Fuji and go out and make use of them instead.

          • MdB

            “For me the GM5 is a perfect balance of compactness, versatility, usability, and image quality.”

            Yes, for you. That’s nice.

            “So I’ll repeat, is your APS-C camera always with you?”

            No. My FF camera, or 1″ camera, or m43’s camera, or APS-C camera is though.

            “The GR, having a fixed focal length lens is, in my opinion, a limited use camera”

            So was my GM5. I’m not sure why you feel that a slow, limited range zoom that protrudes significantly makes it a better pocketable camera. But whatever floats your boat.

            I was merely pointing out that for ‘others’ IE not you, they can just as easily pocket an APS-C camera / always have it on them, yet you seem determined to be ‘right’ in your choice. Unlike you however I have owned all those cameras (including X100/S, but not A5100). The LX100 I also consider to be a much better choice and again do own.

            I’m glad you like your GM5 and it’s the perfect kit for you, but that doesn’t mean that others can’t always have their camera on them. Simple as that.

            Personally the extremely limited shutter, the fiddly controls, the poor battery life, the way it doesn’t fit most lenses properly, the awful EVF all contribute to the GM5 not being a particularly useful camera to me. It is way too crippled to reduce size while still having interchangeable lenses.

          • Spy Black

            “No. My FF camera, or 1″ camera, or m43’s camera, or APS-C camera is though.”
            So you always carry one of these with you every day?

            ” I’m not sure why you feel that a slow, limited range zoom that protrudes significantly makes it a better pocketable camera.”
            Because it has a lot more zoom than your GR, for one, and I can add a different lens if needed. Which sometimes I do.

            “..yet you seem determined to be ‘right’ in your choice.”
            No, not at all, that’s why I’ve repeatedly said that there is no right or wrong camera, only what works for you. You simply haven’t been paying attention. But instead of carrying on with your diatribe, I again suggest grabbing your camera and going out and making use of it.

          • MdB

            Yep always.

            Again “Actually, no, those cameras you listed are all too big and too limited.”… ” for me”.

            You seem to think that because those cameras suggested are ‘limited’ (for you) then others might be different.

            GM5 was too limited “for me”.

            “No, not at all, that’s why I’ve repeatedly said that there is no right or wrong camera, only what works for you.”

            Doesn’t gel with what you said above now does it? it was a blanket statement and one that you continue to make by suggesting others couldn’t possibly be carrying an APS-C (or larger) camera at all times.

            How about this, instead of making great sweeping claims, you just say “the GM5 suits me as a take everywhere camera” rather than this diatribe where you try to prove other choices wrong? Believe it or not people are different and have different needs / wants.

          • Spy Black

            “Again “Actually, no, those cameras you listed are all too big and “too limited.”… ” for me”.”
            Correct.

            “You seem to think that because those cameras suggested are ‘limited’ (for you) then others might be different.”
            Others might be different?…

            “Doesn’t gel with what you said above now does it?
            Gels perfectly.

            “it was a blanket statement and one that you continue to make by suggesting others couldn’t possibly be carrying an APS-C (or larger) camera at all times.”
            Actually, I was asking the question. Is your APS-C camera always with you at all times? I never heard a response by the OP, but you now are saying how you carry one of any variety of formats every day, but certainly not an APS-C camera every day. So the answer is no, you don’t. Most people don’t. Because they are too big. That’s why cameras like the RX100 are popular. Like the GM5, they fit right in your pocket.

            “…rather than this diatribe where you try to prove other choices wrong?
            Because I wasn’t doing that, I was responding to the OPs comment about m4/3 sensors versus APS-C. Perhaps you should go all the way back to the top and start again.

          • Boston C

            Two things GR lacking: EVF and video of decent quality.

          • MdB

            Video yes. Everything else… Not sure your’ve ever used one, but I suspect not.

          • Eric Calabros

            Whats that lens?

          • Spy Black

            The 12-32 (24-64 FF equivalent) kit lens that comes with the camera.

          • a4

            … and you really walk the streets this way? 😉

    • Sakaphoto Graphics

      Interesting. I’m not seeing a great difference between the images from micro Four-Thirds and my Nikon D7200, except for the 14-bit raw files.

      So, what is the drawback?

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    So it’s basically a G7 in GX form factor. But why they couldn’t make it as good looking as the GX7?

    • Francisco Santos

      it looks better than the gx8 .. thats for sure..
      The viewfinder looks tiny.. i surely would go for the g7 instead of this

  • Chaitanya

    I would like to see side by side comparison to GX8, if its smaller and pocketable this would make a good travel camera.

    • Narretz

      Definitely smaller than the GX8, there’s a comparison in the comments

  • stpr

    1/2 OT but why are there no superzooms available for MFT beside the 14-150 by Olympus resp. Tamron? This would make a great travel camera together with something like a 14-224 f3.5-6.3.

    • markz

      Depends on your definition of a superzoom
      Panasonic have the 14-140 which is 28 to 280 equiv framing.

      the older, same styled GX7 does make a great travel camera, my DSLRs now stay at home and 2 GX7’s and 3 lenses can all fit in one divider of my shoulder bag, freeing up room for other stuff (lunch, a fold up brolly etc)
      I keep either the 20mm or 14mm prime, or sometimes the 14-42 on my main camera body – this zoom covers pretty much 95% + of my shots. and the longer zoom gets pocketed or mostly stays in my shoulder bag.
      One of the issues with the super zooms is they are somewhat large, defeating the pocket-ability of the camera (OK I admit I generally wear something like an Orvis field jacket so that’s got reasonably large pockets but no larger than a lot of travel jackets or vests – again the GX7 with any of these three lens will fit in a Scottevest or a Exofficio travel vest) .

      According to my exif I’ve shot at (or exceeding) a ff equiv. of 300mm on less than 0.03% of my travel shots (a total of 5 shots over eight 1 to 2 month trips over 10 years) in fact the last two trips I left the 100-300 zoom at home and just packed the smaller, lighter 45-150.

      • stpr

        Before I went into DSLR I had a Panasonic DMC-TZ25, which had an 24-384 equivalent lens. Currently I am on a Canon 700D with a Sigma 18-250, which is often too short as well, as I am mostly into animal photography (in zoos or national parks), so I would prefer if it would be at least a bit longer. And yes, I know that this isn’t the right equipment for these kind of shots, but as I am there with my wife and my daughter most of the time I have to make compromises. I also have the Sigma 120-400, but it is just too heavy for these kind of trips. That’s why I would love the above mentioned combi as a second set.

  • ZZ

    WTF … they couldn’t keep the 20MP sensor found in GX8?

    • Spy Black

      This is probably a cheaper model.
