Recently I’ve shared a few thoughts about my new Panasonic G9 and its subsequent return to Wex Photographic. I’ve now received the replacement camera with lens, and I’m delighted to say I’m extremely please. The combination of the G9 and the Leica 12-60 is excellent, I love the size, weight, ease of use, and I … Continue reading Further Image Quality Musings
Last week I mentioned that I was returning my recently purchased Panasonic G9. I had bought a kit and it turned out the lens that came with the G9 (it was a Leica 12-60) was soft down one side. I’m pleased to say that the replacement kit arrived today, although I haven’t had time to … Continue reading Comparing the Panasonic G9 with the Fuji XT3
VIew from Win Hill in the Peak District. Panasonic G9 with 12-60 lens. See text below for further details. I’m sure that it will come as no surprise that I’ve been wasting lots of time with my new Panasonic G9. I’ve spent hours pixel peeping to examine the performance of the camera and have even … Continue reading High-Resolution Pixel Peeping with the Panasonic G9

The cheapest upgrade to your camera outfit may be changing RAW converters. There's a big difference between the best and worst and it changes by camera make.
Heswall. Olympus EM5, 9-18mm Olympus lens, ISO200, f/8.0, 1/25". Today I’m returning to an image that I’ve probably shown before. It may not be the same identical file but it’s possible you’ve already seen this. I’m doing this because I’ve been back through my image library and reprocessed quite a few of the RAW files. … Continue reading Friday Image No.212
A couple of weeks back I mentioned that I had purchased a Zeiss 32mm prime for the Fuji X-T2. I’ve now had an opportunity to use the lens out in the field and I’m pleased, but not delighted. Here’s my reasoning: The lens is sharp, actually it’s very sharp. It also resolves lots of fine … Continue reading Do I Love my Zeiss 32mm Prime?
I mentioned in a recent post that I purchased a new 32mm Zeiss prime for my Fuji X-T2. If you read the post, you’re probably thinking I’m going to tell you how great the Zeiss is. But I’m not.

I have done something rash! Yes, again. Having sold all my prime lenses a couple of years back, I bought another. And I have a feeling I may buy more. Want to understand what changed my mind?
