VariableScope's current gear

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm 1:1.8
Powerhouse of a camera. Fast, high IQ and easy to handle. Looks great to boot. Video is fantastic as well.
How to make people look amazing in pictures. Excellent rendering of faces, nice bokeh and speedy plus accurate focus. Lens hood should have been included tbh.
Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 II ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm F4-5.6 ASPH Mega OIS
Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS
Cosmetic upgrade to an already fantastic lens. Wish the focus motor was updated with this version. My preferred walkaround lens.
For when you want to bring your subject in closer. Lightweight, sharp and fast focus. Wish it had a tiny bit more range.
Other gear:
  • Joby Gorillapod Hybrid
  • Nissin i40 Flashgun

Yet another walkaround prime. Ideal for the GM cameras.

Specs seem right for a macro lens. Leica macro a little overpriced by comparison.

Looks like a sweet travel lens. Would probably get to replace the 45-150mm.

Pipedream lens. Not sure about its intended applications in my case.

Bye bye birdy. You gave me great photos but the compromises I dealt with by 2014 were too much. But back in 2010 when i got it, it was a revelation coming from compact cameras and using friends' heavy DSLRs.
Hefty lens but focus was decently quick and sharp.
Painful focus aside, this was the first lens I got for my camera. Great rendering and sharpness. Only reason I got rid of it was because I got the V2 with my GX7.
