Looks like the new lens agrees with you Rosey.

Nice start!

What do you think?

This is the rear end of the Vasa ship at the Vasa Museum in Stockholm.

ISO 3200 --- CC please

My biggest concern with the M43 sensor is low light as I am seriosouly considering taking the camera to Africa on my next trip along with the 100-400 (which I have yet to buy)... ;-)a

They look good to me at this size. I had to clean up noise at 200 ISO for the kid's portrait!

Thanks, I still do noit have a camera set up to the way I like it. These two portraits were woefully underexposed the camera seemed to only see the back light, plus she is very dark. I got to a point where I could not remember what colour she is, but I did work out how to 'over?' use skin smoothing in ACDSee. The full face portrait is a pretty hefty crop.

I think for details I top out at 1600. For the sake of creativity I am willing to go beyond that, but I would expect detail to suffer


Pentax K1 MKii, Panasonic G9, Panaleica 100-400, Samyang 12mm F2 NCS CS, 7Artisans 7.5mm f2.8 fisheye, Panagor 90mm f2.8 Macro (OM), , Sigma APO 2x DG EX TC, Tiffen aXent ND 3.0 (ND1000) filter, Olympus OMD E-M5(drown in the Atlantic), Oly 14-42mm, Oly 12-50mm, ZEQ25gt Mount, plus a few other lenses, extension tubes, and general mish-mash

It is a damn good value in a lens and quite good. The one I had became noticeably softer once I got past about 270mm. The long end is where I really wanted to use it, so after a week or so I decided to return it and go "big" with the 100-400mm.

Not entirely sure the 100-400mm is worth the extra money, but camera gear is one of my few vices, so I decided to splurge.

Both of those shots look good. My experience with M4/3 and higher ISO noice issues is detail in shadows. If you can get a well lit exposure it can do good.

I would take my G9 alone anywhere so long as I wasn't planning a lot of night time/dark shooting and had good fast lenses to scoop up the light and allow a decent shutter speed for animal shots.

Here is the dilemma—- last trip to Africa I had my Canon 80D with Canon 100-400 II. I was very pleased with the overall results. Most game drives begin early in the morning and then again late in the afternoon. So a lot of low light situations. I found my self at 5.6 1600 at 3200, 5000 and even 6400 ISO. Not ideal. The Panasonic 100-400 loses another stop to 6.3 at the long end. So pushing the ISO is likely many times.

Shooting animals in Africa in my experience doesn’t require a lot of super fast AF unless you get into a chase situation which really doesn’t happen that often. Not like shooting BIF. So I believe the G9 AF system would be more than adequate.

The low lite situation still worries me. I thought about upgrading to the Canon 90D but I really like my G9.

Actually we’ll see what happens because the Africa trip is being planned for May 2021 but have to look forward since it’s likely my last trip to Africa.

BUT... PL 100-400mm at 300 (600mm eq) is f/5.7 vs the EF 100-400mm at 400mm f/5.6 and 560mm eq on the 80D so almost a wash at equal FL.

I have an 80D and the 100-400mm, I’d much rather carry the G9/PL 100-400mm combo if there wasn’t a gear Sherpa and I was having to lug it around all day.

Other thing I would think of was what I was doing with shots, personal use on computer screen or small prints I wouldn’t worry as much. Paid work or large prints, I’d be more concerned.

Tell you what, adopt me for the trip. Bring what you want and I will bring the other. We can shoot side by side and compare afterwards:-P

You make some good points. Have to go check how many shots were actually at 400mm.

Sometimes we were just too close for the 100-400. In fact I intend to bring the 80D with my 18-135 attached. No fumbling around to change lenses that way. My 2013 trip to Africa I had the 70-300 L and didn’t really feel I needed a lot more reach —- but I did it anyway. Hehehe. Back in 1979 in Kenya I was shooting film with a Canon AE-1. :eek:
