Just got my second Panasonic G3 today. Even though this lenses is out in the market for sometimes, and got some good review in the internet, but i do not have any chance to use it. The feeling that my first time i got this camera is that: wow ... how Panasonic squeeze so many features into one small body, as it's really compact and small after having some many features. I was using G1 previous, handling wise, i would think that G1 is better but the G3 is really convenient to carry around and still manageable for me. One immediate big improvement compare to the G1 is the sensor ISO performance, i can shoot ISO-1600 confidently now without any hesitation. this help me to speed up the shutter speed to reduce the handshake.
I posted a few photos below which are from G3 JPEG but with very minor Lightroom exposure setting.
|(f/5.6, 1/40sec, ISO-800,84mm equiv.)|
|(f/3.5, 1/30sec, ISO-800, 28mm equiv)|
|(1/5.6, 1/30sec, ISO-800, 84mm equiv.)|
|(f/3.5, 1/80sec, ISO-1600, 39mm equiv(tele-conv), 14mm(original))|
Spotted "colourful" ice cream BUT unfortunately, there is a glass in front of the ice cream, else the result will be even better.
|(f/5.6, 1/125sec, ISO-1600, 84mm equiv.)|
|(f/4.7, 1/60sec, ISO-1600, 52mm equiv)|
|(f/4, 1/125sec, ISO-1600, 28mm equiv.)|
very little luminance noise as seen in the photo below with ISO-1600.
|(f/3.5, 1/13sec, ISO-1600, 28mm equiv.)|
