For most of us the word "Leica" conjures up the heritage and images of legendary street photographers; irrelevance; or a big hole (the one in our bank account or on our credit card statement). But I loved Leica's controversial CL, even more daring TL2 and a pile of Leica glass.
Was back in the city just over a week ago, roaming some of my favorite neighborhoods with what I've called the best "medium format" camera of 2017, the a7R III. Yet here I am proclaiming it the best street photography combo I've ever used. How is that even possible? AF performance, optical performance, IBIS, dynamic range, sparkling sensor for stills and vids, that's how.
Well, this is one way to play catch up: put all the videos I've done on the Panasonic GH5 and related lenses over the last couple of months in one post.

Just a quick note to apologize for leaving so much off the blog. This is all a very part-time thing I'd like to make almost-full time (we start shooting a documentary short tomorrow), Still sorting it out. Will try to get a pile of YouTube videos reposted here over the next couple of day, but you can always go straight to our YouTube channel. Thanks for your patience!
Yes, the a9 is sick-fast, arguably sickest-fastest general purpose camera out there. But I actually lost sleep after shooting with it for a full day, wondering “why this camera, why now, and for whom?”
The Sony a6500 [B&H|Amazon] is a great camera, as it is essentially an a6300 with in-body image stabilization, a few ergonomic tweaks, a much bigger buffer, and an imperfect touch auto focus system. Here's my freaking half-hour review, with plenty of footage. I tell you which of the two -- along with the original a6000 -- you should buy.
