  1. That's a crapload of gear in a messenger bag. Wow. It's like in the movies when you see someone reach into a magical bag and keep pulling out items that are larger than the bag.

    Here's my Micro Four Thirds kit:

    Olympus OM-D E-M1 (original) with third-party battery grip
    Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 with Neewer battery grip
    Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 PRO
    Olympus 40-150mm f2.8 PRO with MC-14 1.4X and MC-20 2X teleconverters
    Olympus 45mm f1.8 with MCON-P01 macro converter
    Olympus 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II — which is now for sale on eBay since I just got the MC-20 teleconverter and it has become redundant
    Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4 Summilux
    Neewer foldable DSLR shoulder rig
    Takstar SCG-598 shotgun microphone with deadcat windscreen
    Zoom H1 audio recorder with deadcat windscreen
    Manfrotto BeFree Live lever lock video tripod with fluid head
    A bunch of filters, cables, and a pair of earbuds
    VKO memory card case with a bunch of cards

    And it all fits in the Altura Photo DSLR Camera Backpack! There are some things that are less than ideal about this backpack. First and foremost, you have to take it off to open the main compartment, which is right up against your back (thankfully there is padding). But it obviously holds a crapload of stuff, and it was only $44.99.

    I'm thinking about lightening my load a bit further by swapping the E-M1 and G85 for an E-M1 II (which shoots better video than the original E-M1 and has better autofocus than both of them), but that may happen down the road when the used prices on the E-M1 II drop further.

    I get the appeal of the GM1 and 12-32mm or 15mm f1.7 being so tiny, but I wouldn't put that in a bag with these other cameras. Just carry it separately in a very tiny bag. It's neat that it fits though!

    I think the GX85 might be worth a tiny bit of extra bulk so you can have a viewfinder and IBIS, but that's just me. The Lumix 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 is a great lens for walking around, but I don't fully get the appeal of the Leica 12-60mm f2.8-4.0 when you already have the Olympus 12-100mm f4.0 IS lens.

  2. Nicely done- I like the relaxed sense to this interview- the notes on the ergo of the M1 VS G9 was truthful and noteworthy.

  3. Great advice from Giulio in this video. You can tell he's been in this game for a while. I admit to being a full-frame snob for the better part of the last decade…but I'm now shooting with APS-C and full-frame almost interchangeably and even choose APS-C only sometimes. The M43 cameras and glass interest me a lot, but I think I'm content with my happy family with APS-C and full-frame.

  4. This is the video I was waiting for before buying My G9. Although I already have my camera thank you for sharing the practical real world info and experience with your cameras and not just reading specs like so many do.

  5. Hi. I have a question for Giulio. You mention (also on your channel) colour profiles of Leica lenses (not camera's colour profiles but lenses colour profiles). Could you post a link for some more information about it, please, as most of people seem to not know about it. I cannot find any information on the internet. Thanks, Bart.

  6. Hmm great stuff and I love this bag, G9 etc but would really like to know what he thinks about Fuji camera as well. I am actually surprised he dont have one haha since he is so passionate about all photography ;D Can learn alot from this guy.

  7. Was looking at upgrading from my Sony RX100v to a system. My first choice was the a7 but the price and size of the lenses was way over the mark. So I’ve been looking at the G9 and EM1 mkii and it’s still hard to choose between them both……… but the EM1 mkii with the 12-100f4 is now only £2100 in the UK… that’s about the price for a Gmaster lens in the Sony range…..

  8. I’ve had improved results with IS enabled on BOTH my lens AND body (EM1 MkII with PanaLeica 100-400) at the same time. Should this be the case ?

  9. Great content…I shoot Pan G0 and Oly E5 Mikita. …loving G9….becoming favorite….question…why shoot video into a back lit room> pull curtains…background distracting…out of focus video….lazy editing….quit room but echo and hollow…show test footage…

  10. 5:30 I use olympus so I am not really biased against sony, but that comparison with that sony 50mm lens to the olympus 17mm F1.8 isn't fair in terms of size. On the a6400 the 50mm will be a optimal focal length for portraiture. the better lens to compare with the olympus is the SEL20mm pancake lens from Sony.

  11. For your G9 you might try what I did with my Fz2500. I attached an adjustable camera strap to the metal ring – right side – & made a loop that my 2 middle fingers go through. Now the bottom corner of the camera rests in my lower palm, while the upper – right side of the camera is supported by the strap which rests on the back side of my 2 fingers. This now allows my thumb & index finger to freely roam around – unburdened with holding onto the camera.

  12. I am so close to buying the E-M1 Mk2. I have the Olympus 12-40 Pro lens on my E-M10 and it is f'ing amazing. I really want a weatherproof body. This video may push me over the edge. Thanks!

  13. My EM-1 Mark 1 bit the dust I have had since 2014 may it rest in peace! And I will have my G9 Monday and very curious to see if I like it!

  14. I like Giulio's work but I think he's overstating the whole olympus glass on panasonic bodies and vice versa thing.

    Yes there are some features like Sync IS and Dual IS and some buttons on the lens that won't work but that won't affect your ability to take great pictures with the lens.

    When you attach the Oly 12-100 to the G9 you don't get Dual IS and it defaults to the lens stabilization of the 12-100 which is excellent, so you're losing at most 1 stop of stabilization (if so much) vs the G9 body with a Dual IS capable lens. Most Olympus lenses don't have stabilization so you'll just use the excellent IBIS of the G9 anyways. Even with DUAL IS capable panny lenses you only gain 0.5 stop of stabilization with it turned on for the shorter focal lengths over using the IBIS alone.
    Even re DFD, which only works with Panasonic lenses only seems to make a difference in extreme cases like video AFC in lowlight in real world use.

    I say look for the lens that covers the focal range that you're interested in with the quality and price you want regardless if it's Oly or Pan and buy it. You'll still have 95% of the functionality in real world use regardless if it matches the body or not. Panasonic doesn't have a lens of the range and quality of the Oly 12-100mm f4 Pro or the Oly 40-150mm f2.8 Pro. The closes match would be the new 50-200 f2.8-4 which is great but its not constant aperture.

  15. Well you know what is embarrassing me about m43 sensors, the smallest resolution, 20mp is not enough even for street photography sometimes, I crop my pics and in the end getting something about 12-16mp. I know that it's enough for web. How to get rid of my pixel peeping disease? When I am looking at 30+ mp images and how they look in 1 to 1 ratio I feel so great about it, but my m43 pics are not looking great enough in 100% zoom, not even talking about 200-400%. I hope they create a 30mp micro 4/3 sensor with a working ISO 3200. I am not a commercial shooter, photography is my hobby.

  16. Just found this video due to the "enthusiast gear research itch" you reminded me how muchI love my em1 mark ii!! Seriously a boss m43! Just wish it had 1080 120fps and better wireless system! ( oh God the olympus connect app!) Keep up the good work!!

  17. Ben, this format really holds one's attention, good move! And Giulio is extremely level-headed, with sound advice in an easy going manner, but without any hint of defensiveness. Your playing off of each other comes across as very positive. A suggestion would be for maybe you and Guilio to go on a photo shoot, maybe some street photography, just hanging out and sharing the local vibe.
