  • Glad you mentioned that.  I used it quite a bit on GF1 but it disappeared in my G3.  I shoot primarily with EM5 now and process to that look but also have GM1 and didn't realize it had it--comes ...
  • Thanks for posting these today <G>. Just so happens I have the lens in my cart and have been debating with myself whether to push the button or not. I plan to shoot with the EM5 and possibly the ...
  • Created discussions GM1 and Clearviewer
    I bought my GM1 last Fall to use alongside my EM5 for a trip.  I enjoyed using it but found that even with the Kaiser hood I bought it was still a pain to compose in sun--plus the hood is rather ...
  • Yes  I still have a G3, brown at that OMG LOL.  What was I thinking!!!!  I had one of the early G1s, a Gf1, jumped to the G3, which is an unattractive little body, and then moved to the Oly OMD5 ...
  • LOL Mine isn't THAT old, only about 12 YO, but it is still serviceable and I use it often for a small kit.
  • I was just going to suggest the G1 which was a sturdy and easy to use camera but I forgot it doesn't have video so I'd go along with the G2 also--or even the G3 which I still own (somewhere LOL). ...
  • I have both also and would choose the EM5 if I had to make a choice but in reality they are really complementary. I took both on two week trip and used equally--and sometimes I do just need an EVF ...
  • Thanks all.  Not sure why my last google search only came up with the 35-100 f/2.8 and knew a friend had ordered from Japan to get it for a trip--false assumption.  I need some other things from B ...
  • I see it on ebay and not in US that I can find.  Does anyone have the lens and is it worth buying, esp, for GM1 and 5?  I've never been a long lens shooter, even in Canon days with my 70-200, but ...
  • And that's not a big issue.  i have a large Epson photo printer and can process everything from Lightroom/PS (since I upload all my cards for organization into Lightroom) for printing.  I do very ...
  • Replied in Last update
    I now have added the Richard Franiec grip which adds just that little bit better handling for me, the Kaiser hood which definitely makes shooting w/o an EVF much better to deal with.  Thanks for ...
  • Kind of agree with you.  I had considered a possibility of considering a Panny again when I wanted to replace EM5 (def. down the road since I'm happy with it) as I could see improvements.  Just a ...
  • No, haven't yet since I, like you, have always been RAW shooter.  I started with the G1, GF1, G3 and couldn't use jpeg with any of them.  I will have to try on your recommendation.  Thanks.
  • Got it, like it very much.  I bought the Kaiser hood for viewing in sunlight and it works very well.  I have had a bunch of Panny m4/3s and my EM5 is first Oly but I do enjoy shooting with ...
  • This is closer to how I work--if I had a Mac I think it would be integrated a lot more but I'm a long time Windows user and just had a new very fast PC built for me last year specifically for ...
  • Replied in And a bit more
    Thanks.  I've had the 45-200 since it came out and though I'm not a "long" shooter it has been a decent lens.  Bigger than the 45-150 which makes a difference with the GM1--and I've read the ...
  • Somewhere I mentioned this but ICYMI, I was looking forward to using the wifi with my Ipad or Iphone.  What I found is that I can use my old Camera Connector I've been using for 4+ years to ...
  • Replied in And a bit more
    Since I appear to be a GM1 convert, I'll have continuing interest in what lenses people are using with it.  Be sure and share your new lens with us.
  • Certainly the small size relative to the EM5--photos didn't do the difference justice.  IQ didn't surprise me because I already knew what to expect--but it still surprises because you feel like ...
  • I've had all Panny bodies since G1 and they all have had those dumb battery doors LOL-- I didn't break any.  I expect the GM1 to hold up until sometime down the road its time to replace.  I've had ...
