    Panasonic Leica 200mm f2.8 – All About the Gear

    Panasonic Leica 200mm f2.8 – All About the Gear

    Panasonic and Leica have been hitting out of the park lately with some stunning lenses for the micro four-thirds platform. The latest being the Leica 200mm f2.8 lens.



    The first thing I noticed was the small size and relative heft of the lens. The first impression it leaves you with is that it is solid, well-made and built for serious photography work.



    One of the cool things I immediately noticed about the lens was the inclusion of a memory button. You can preset a focus distance, then immediately recall it at the touch of a button. I can see how this feature would be invaluable for situations when you’re relatively immobile, waiting for action to happen in a particular spot.





    Stabilization

    The fact that Panasonic seems to be making image stabilization standard on all of their cameras is fantastic. But never is it more important than on longer focal length lenses like the 200mm. And the fact that Panasonic has included IS in the lens means you can activate DUAL image stabilization for up to 5 stops of added stability.



    The autofocus speed was extremely fast… with and without the teleconverter. Which I can see as a must for far away fast-moving subjects like cars or birds.

    Accessories

    Accessories that come with the lens include a 1.4x teleconverter that increases the effective range to 280mm at f4.0 - that would be 560mm on full-frame cameras. There’s also an optional 2.0x teleconverter that will increase the range to 400mm or 800mm on full-frame cameras.



    A well-made plastic lens hood with a set screw. And an optional tripod mounting foot. Plus you get soft cases for the lens and the teleconverter.

    Image Quality

    The image quality coming out of this lens is just stunning. And unexpected for such a long focal length lens at f2.8 the image quality was very good. And at at f4.0 it was EXTREMELY good! I can see why this lens is so expensive. Plus the beautiful bokeh that you get at such long focal lengths makes almost every background into beautiful mush!



    Like I said in the intro, this lens represents an important addition to the micro four-thirds lens line-up. The lens is built like a tank, but at the same time it’s much smaller than the full-frame equivalents.



    However, this is NOT a cheap lens, at the time of this recording it’s priced at about $2,500 - that includes the 1.4x teleconverter.



    If your genre of photography calls for long, fast glass — and you can afford it, this lens is a must-have for your collection. And even if you can’t afford it, you might consider renting one for those missions that call for this kind of reach.

    The Panasonic Lumix G9 – All About the Gear

    The Panasonic Lumix G9 – All About the Gear

    The Lumix G9 is one of the latest camera releases from Panasonic. It’s significant in many ways, one of the main reasons being that it’s squarely targeted at “stills” photographers (versus video shooters). Panasonic asked questions, listened, then implemented the suggestions for professional landscape, nature, sports shooters and others.



    The result is a triumph in engineering. And I’d even go so far as to say the Lumix G9 is probably the best camera I’ve ever owned.

    The Specifications:

    So, let’s get some homework out of the way first. Some photographers (including myself) will say the specifications for this camera are impressive. Others will say it’s hamstrung by the small micro four-thirds sensor.



    My response for the “small sensor” gripe is that what works for you and your genre/style of photography may not work for others. This camera works for me… and many thousands of others.



    * 20.3 Megapixel Micro 4/3rds sensor with no anti-aliasing filter (same as GH5)

    * 20 FPS burst w/continuous AF frame rate using the e-shutter (for ~50 frames)

    * 9 FPS burst w/continuous AF using mechanical shutter (for 600+ frames)

    * ISO 100-25,600

    * Dust-resistant, freezeproof, splashproof - Magnesium body

    * 5-axis in-body image stabilization with Dual I.S. version 2.0 (6.5 stops)

    * Uses same batteries as GH3, GH4, GH5 and GH5S

    * Wi-Fi + Bluetooth

    * 1.04M-dot 3" articulating touchscreen display

    * Dual UHS-II card slots supporting new high-speed 'V'-rated cards

    * Assortment of 4K and 6K Photo modes and in-camera focus stacking



    What's Different?

    So, that’s enough about the specs… what makes this camera different from other Lumix cameras? Even from it’s siblings, the GH5 and GH5s?



    * 80MP Raw and/or JPEG files using High-Resolution mode

    * Top Plate LCD

    * Nikon Style On/off backlight

    * Buttons positioned perfectly

    * Deep hand grip

    * Well thought-out buttons and dials

    * Good-enough Audio/video - 4K/60p UHD video capture

    * Night mode

    * Front custom switch

    * HUGE 60FPS EVF, 3.68M-dot electronic viewfinder w/ up to 0.83x equivalent magnification

    * USB charge and power capability



    The Bad Stuff:

    As we all know, there are no perfect cameras. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention a few quibbles that keep the G9 from being flawless.



    * Sensitive shutter button

    * Top LCD backlight turns off too quickly (not configurable?) On some Fuji’s the display stays activated constantly (not backlit) even when the camera is off.

    * Low light performance (damn physics)

    * Weight



    Conclusion:

    In short, the G9 is a triumph, especially at this price point. As I record this, you can snag a G9 (body only) for around $1,600US).



    It’s the obvious result of Panasonic engineering listening to its base, watching trends, and aiming squarely at producing a camera that is created unapologetically for still photographers — while still maintaining video capabilities that make similar cameras in its class jealous.



    I own a few Lumix cameras, and this is the first one that gives me that little electric feeling in the pit of my stomach!

A personal view that covers ground

An informative talk between photo AND gear addicts about what they use and abuse as photographers. A very subjective view it is, for sure, but not claimed to be absolute. I like the humor, and the info from a user point of view that is given here.
Could come more often for me. Thanks, guys, for this show, and please keep up with it!
