First test shot with the new-to-me Lumix G3.

It is known to not be great in low light but here is a test shot at ISO 640 handheld 1/20 at f1.4.

The in camera JPEG 'Monochrome' setting is sepia rather than true B&W so I desaturated in PS Elements 6.

Interestingly the wider angle lenses (15mm and 28mm so far) do not focus up close on the M4/3 - Leica M adapter but this is as close as I could focus with the Lux 50/1.4.

Not bad for ISO640 but the true test will be at ISO 160 (the lowest ISO on the Lumix G3)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 + Zeiss ZM Sonnar 50mm f1.5

The 1930s design Sonnar 50/1.5 can have a few focus shift issues on the Leica M9. On the Panny G3 however using the EVF you can get every photo super sharp everytime. It is lighter than Leica Lux 50 ASPH and Leica Cron 50/2 so pairs better with the G3.

Lumix G3 + Zeiss Zm Sonnar 50mm f1.5
French Model - Valentine
Shot in Leicester Square, London today against a white door

Great day in London.. a mix of street photography, fashion photography and a visit to the Leica Shop&Cafe.

Today was also a testing day for the little Panasonic Lumix G3. It is up against the Leica M9 and Nikon D800 yet costs the same as some of the Leica assessories.

First impressions.. the JPEGs really lack punch so although I am shooting JPEGs in monochrome mode I have to push them through LR3 to get something useable. The little Lumix G3 processor lacks contrast, sharpness and resolving power but I must bear in mind it's cost. Here these characteristics are less of an issue as softer lower contrast images are often more flattering for female portraiture.

Leica Inspired London Street Photography

Today was a testing day for the little Panasonic Lumix G3. It is up against the Leica M9 and Nikon D800 yet costs the same as some of the Leica assessories.

First impressions.. the JPEGs really lack punch so although I am shooting JPEGs in monochrome mode I have to push them through LR3 to get something useable. The little Lumix G3 processor lacks contrast, sharpness and resolving power but I must bear in mind it's cost.

Here I paired the Lumix G3 + Voigtlander 15mm f4.5. The lens is super sharp so it will show what the camera sensor is capable of. Interestingly using the Leica M - M4/3 adapter the 15/4.5 focuses to infinity when set on 0.5M on camera. As you can imagine this is a street photography dream!!! Compact light sharp lens that is sharp wide open and on the G3 from approximately 1M to infinity. I had so much fun using this setup this morning. It was Leica inspired as I shot it how I would my Leica (composition and manual mode) but with the advantage I didn't need to worry about hyperfocal distance as long as not too close to me.

I just wish the resulting image quality was of higher standard. Here is the first of a series.
