Categories: Miscellaneous 2 Comments

Not before time someone has bought the Lexar brand just in time for the Panasonic GH5 and EVA-1. I do hope this will allow the Lexar brand to expand and become a market leader both in price and availability.

    Virtually every GH5 blog and Facebook group has lots of warnings not to use Lexar SD cards in their GH5s, so I’m not sure that having a new owner will change any of the many reported priblems with Lexar and GH5s.

    HDW : I am using Lexar 128G 1000x cards day in and day out with no problems.

    I know this is an old story but GH5 users can take a look at the Sony 128GB 300MBs read AND 299 Mbs write. most cards have only half the write speed for their read.

    hope you have a big budget though!
