  • BOTH with OIS!
  • 100-400mm f4 with an integrated tripod collar. I'd want a marked improvement in sharpness throughout the range without the need to shoot at f7.1, which is what I do now with the 100-300mm. It ...
  • 100-400mm f4 (I like the 100-300mm, but wish it were much better quality and a bit brighter.) 12-60mm f2.8-4 with close-focus ability (at least on par with the 4/3 lens, if not better. 12-35/40mm ...
  • Fresnel, like theatrical lighting? That seems odd. Okay. So, what's the advantage or disadvantage of a DO lens vs. a standard lens?
  • What's DO lens mean? I sure wish people would spell out the meaning of an acronym before scattering it about.
  • Ditched a GX7 for a GX1? That's nucking futs! Dumping a DSLR I can understand. I have and use both and the GX7 is so much better than the GX1 in every way. Ergonomics, controls, handling, image ...
  • Okay, but make it a 100-400mm f4 and give it an integrated tripod collar!
  • Okay, I'll try to remember… ;-) I use it with my GX7 in M mode. I think I'm using a Fotodiox lens adaptor with it. Settings: Constant Preview, focus peaking (H), highlights active. For macro ...
  • When I shot film I used Nikons, so a Nikon AI-S series lens fan. Macro lenses tend to be more expensive than their standard counterparts. Sharpness is much better, obviously, so results are better ...
  • Replied in Lens decision
    Exactly. For me, as an available light shooter, the ability to shoot in very low light (interior or exterior) with lower ISOs, at higher shutter speeds is essential. It's not everyone's cup o' tea, ...
  • Replied in Lens decision
    If you can't decide. Wait. If you're unsure… don't just buy lenses to fill your bag. Spend more time shooting with what you have. It's an excellent kit. Take note of when you felt the need for a ...
  • This why several of us have suggested waiting and saving for a 14-140mm. Wasting money on lenses you don't really want just to have them is, well a waste. It's better to wait and get what you want. ...
  • If they made it a macro lens it would be a big differentiator from any standard telephoto. A higher quality 100-300mm would suit me. 100-400mm would be fantastic! Having used mine for the past 2+ ...
  • Agreed. I'd also add that it it would be very beneficial if it were a macro lens, with good manual focus ability, NOT the dreaded and dreadful focus-by-wire that the majority of M4/3 lenses are ...
  • If you're a heavy user, get three batteries!bIve found the GX7 to have rather pitiful battery life! I'm a heavy EVF user, mainly with manual lenses, so my shot total per charge seems quite low. ...
  • If you're concerned about SS, then use it with the GX7 in Sikent Mode. The only downsides are an ISO3200 limit, flash is disabled and sometimes you'll see jello effect when shooting fast moving ...
  • Yes, that's it. The newer one is f3.5-5.6, while the older one is f4-5.8 and much bigger and heavier. It's only a bit larger than the 14-45mm.
  • That sounds good. The GX7 + 20mm are a great combo. Take it slow. There's no need to buy a pile of lenses right off the bat. Learn the camera, think about what you like to shoot, do some research ...
  • Replied in Strange
    If the lens is stopped down enough, all you need is to focus and fire away. There's no need for the camera to constantly adjust focus. Yes, it IS fun! Try it! BTW, there's no need to spend a lot on ...
  • Be aware that the Nikon D7100 has an APSC sensor, not "full frame", so factor in the 1.5x sensor crop. This is an apples to oranges debate. Body size counts at least as much as lens size… the main ...
