Useless. Not even the same exposure, nor were there any attempts to shoot similar picture styles.

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

I refuse to watch any video when it has loud obnoxious music that has no bearing on the images we are meant to see. Why do people do that? What are they thinking?

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

Gary, I agree, lenses are too different to be compared, doesn't make sense, the comparison isn't of any value, really. A 2.8 vs a 4.5?

I own the 14-140mm lens, it is not a great lens. Till I can afford better, it will have to do. It's almost useless in low light. Those that own it already know that. $2500 will buy a fast zoom. .

Jon, I found your comment on the music to be excessive and pointless. Music taste is personal, just as religion is. If you don't like the music, why don't you just turn it down?

That video demonstrated nothing. Also the clips weren't labeled.

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

Yes, even though the comparisons of completely different lenses, Gary, maybe next time you could put text into the video so we can know what we were looking at, that would help a lot.

The lenses you chose to compare just don't go together in my mind, and I just didn't "get it", but that doesn't mean we all don't welcome your efforts.

If you were treated harshly, please accept my apology for my part. We are sometimes abrupt, but there is no malice intended. Keep coming back and post anytime.

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

Not a bad effort, Gary. What conclusions did you draw from your own tests?

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

Maybe it's better to not label the footage. That way everyone can claim their favorite camera was used to shoot the 'better' version ;-)

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

My point was this is a test of two camera images, not loud music - if you want to invite people to spend time watching it, then you have a responsibility to make it informative and enjoyable. This was not the case for me.

Re: Canon 5d mark2 vrs Panasonic gh2

Gary, speaking of lenses, I've got my eye on the 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM used with an adapter...should be VERY nice.

I used that lens with my Canon 40d and it was remarkable, and a great deal.
