Mirrorless question of the month:


Hi Marco! You have talked about your first experience with the Panasonic Lumix S1R in a previous show. I am currently using the Lumix G9 for my sports and portrait work. What do you think would be my real-world advantages if I add an S1R to my bag? I do about 50% sports and 50% portrait and people photography right now and my sports photos are mainly used for web- and newspaper distribution while my portraits are usually also printed and framed for my clients.

Thanks, Justin.
