    The GAS Conundrum

    I resign! I’d spend less buying some more gear!

    Quite right Vivion, I’m sure GAS will rear it’s head again, hopefully not for a while. 😊

    30metres doesn’t seem to be very high! Apparently I read that droning is really addictive!

    The GAS Conundrum

    When I was getting very unhappy with Fujifilm, I cast an eye around to seek an alternative, I was inspired by Dallas, Luc de Schepper, and David Thorpe the blogger(sensible mu-43 reviews) and ordered a Lumix G9 + 12-60mm 2.8/4 Leica lens as a trial and that was it, all the unreliable Fuji gear was sold or PXed for a slew of Leica and Panasonic lenses that I’ve been blown away by! That bout of GAS cost me dearly but I’m not regretting it yet. Bar two little episodes of peeling cover material the output quality(glued back with superglue) is exceeding my expectations! Expensive yes but when GAS snuggles up to you the willpower melts away, so that particular itch gets scratched, a quick glance at my signature will show I scratched it well! As you no doubt will know, very system you buy into is always the greatest thing since sliced bread. Again as we also realise there is no such thing as the perfect system is there?

    The GAS Conundrum

    I have a historic antipathy to Olympus cameras dating back to the 1960s, In the OM 1,2,3,4s, I just never got them! Their lenses I have no animosity to, but prefer the design of the Panasonic Lumix lenses nicer lines to my eyes! Both Olympus and Lumix lenses are virtually equal in their image quality, which I perceive as superior to Fujinon lenses. But then I don’t have your experience of Olympus cameras and which shows in the quality you are able get from your Olympuses. Ain’t GAS wonderful, but I can say that as my itch to spend has been scratched. (for now!) Good luck with the decision making.

    Nearly all of the tree!

    This tree started life in my neighbours garden where it did not thrive and was dieing. So he transplanted a very small sickly bush in the verge outside. As you can see it likes its new location! Lumix G9 +35-100mm 2.8 @ 1/1250 f5.6 ISO200.

    That’s something else I don’t get is the fetish with bokeh, Armando that shot is fine!

    Cherry blossom?

    Thanks Luc, tried your suggestion and yes that does add a little extra! Dallas, I do have a small Metz shoe mounted flash, but never been a fan of flash! Always thought it was a PITA in other words I’ve never got to grips with it.

    Cherry blossom?

    This tree which I believe is some type of cherry, every year the blossom pleases me! Lumix G9 + 35-100mm @ 1/1000 f4 ISO200 a bit of sunshine would have been nice!
