Mark, I know they 'claim' that blue separation is supposed to be one of the advantages, but if you look at the 3 most left blue color patches, you'll see the differentiation of these boxes is largely...

Except that some might argue that you've now 'baked in' the color by using the EOS Sony 'fix'.

I would generally agree, but my comment was Panasonic's default settings vs Sony's.

From what...

So guys, nobody has this combination?

Is anyone feeding a Directv 4K STB through the 203's HDMI input and out to a UHD LG OLED? If so, how are you finding the 203's HD>4K upconversion relative to the LG's upscaling that same Directv STB?

And then there's this

The AF looks very impressive and puts the GH4 to shame. In fact, by any standard, the AF looks excellent. :)

The 24-240 is quite big, heavy and clumsy. My back would be bothering me at the end of the day, when shooting with the A7Rii & 24-240. For short periods it's OK, but this not a great combo for your...

Mark, I used the Sony 24-240 F3.5-6.3, Sony 28mm F2 & the Sony 28-70 F3.5-5.6 FF lenses. The 24-240 was my 'go to' lens.

That vignetting seems to be at higher luminance levels than is typical. I would suggest an exchange.

Bill, you'd also be giving up quite a bit of reach by going for the 12-60 as a replacement for the 14-140.

Thanks, Bill. I just added a comment over there. I'd guess the IBIS of the G85 solves what ever jitter problem may exist in the lens itself.

Thanks, Mark.

Yes, agreed on all points. I never expected to like the G85 as much as I do. I find the colors richer and more saturated than with any Sony of recent vintage, including my A6300...

Good review of the G85

I must have missed this review, but it's an interesting read:

Thanks, Bill. I can't recall if I'm on 1.1 or 1.2.

Edit: Yup, that's what my lens shipped with, 1.2.

Joe, I suspect the GH4 video was not as heavily graded as the GH5 was. We know that the low light of the GH5 is better than the GH4, so it makes no sense his results would be worse.

Is it just me or does the footage from this camera seem on the soft side? The videos I've seen just seems to lack some detail.
