Depends what pics your taking, up close you may as well use the phone. I prefer a small camera as they are nicer to use and cost less in several ways than if you dropped your phone or got it stolen. Combined with the additional benefit of a zoom, if your willing to pay 200quid for a small sensor camera, I reckon yes. But if its pictures you want to keep or show on your 4k tv - as i said before that MFT camera is the place to go (although it appears out of stock - no suprise really - which is renders my point less useful!!). It seems a lot of people have different experiences to me and are happy with small sensor pictures. But one of my biggest regrets in life (first world problem eh) is not buying a proper camera when my kids were younger. I look back at great pictures that sadly look utter garbage because i thought a compact, bridge or phone were good enough. Today using big sensors its not an issue. Im no pro so kick myself sometimes at missed opportunities, but the MFT and APSC cameras never let me down. The quality is fantastic its just upto me to frame it.
The GX seems to be out of stock and I want one now !!
Is this worth buying if I have an iPhone XR for holiday photos
focal length equivalents are not complete BS how else are you supposed to compare different sensors the 170mm on this gives a totally different view from that on slr so is absolutely fine to mention equivalents
Good deal (y) ....but do I sell my Sony hx60v and hx400v in order to fund my superzoom addiction.....although the nikon P1000 is really tickling my fancy too....
