James Popsys: 2 years with Micro Four Thirds… What I learned.

James Popsys:

My camera of choice for the past 2 years has been the Lumix G9. It has a Micro Four Thirds sensor, and it’s the best camera I’ve ever owned. But sensor size is always a talking point, and pitching m43 against APS-C and Full Frame is always good fun!

David Thorpe: A Year In Micro Four Thirds

David Thorpe:

The last year, 2019/20 has been a strong one for the Micro Four Thirds system. I thought I’d take a look back over it with few remarks on what was actually new and what was new to me. The Panasonic S1 proved an interesting diversion but all that extra weight and cost didn’t feel justified for the limited improvement, much as I liked the camera. The E-M5 Mark III mostly impressed, the big Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 too, though it was overshadowed for me by a Micro Four Thirds lens costing 1/19th as much! Am I mad?
