Got an E-M10 recently and am looking into telezooms. I've been reading about the Panasonic 45-175mm lens and the shutter shake issue. I was wondering if the recent EFCS firmware update for Olympus prevents it. Thanks!

Hello, I have just sold my Canon T2i, and I'm waiting for my Lumix GF6 with 14-42mm PZ lens kit to be delivered.  I am looking for the smallest possible bag that would fit this kit, a 45-175mm PZ, a 45mm f2.8 (if possible), one extra battery, wallet, passport, and most importantly an iPad mini in a Apple Smart Case.  I am especially looking for something that doesn't look like a camera bag, as I will carry this thing with me all the time. Would the F-5XA be able to fit these things (most...

Hi! I bought Panasonic 45-175, have updated firmware and now I investigate the OIS issue and its limitations. These shots were made with GF3 at 175 mm, 1/400-1/640, camera was handled. I have two blurry and tho sharp images. I know that the OIS issue can make image doubling and I saw many examples in the Internet and some examples in my photos at ~1/160. But here exposure is lower. So the question is: Can you determine what is the cause of blurring on 2 of 4 photos? Wrong autofocus, my hand...

I am about to come into some money that I want to invest in improving the quality of my images.

Hi everyone, I am planning to get a small pocket-able camera as a second system alongside my Nikon D800. I used to have a GH2, and I was wondering if anyone has experience with both cameras. Although GX1 is newer, snapsort is showing the sensor not as good as GH2: http://snapsort.com/compare/Panasonic-GX1-vs-Panasonic_Lumix_DMC-GH2/specs GX1 + 45-150mm combo is very lightweight and would be a nice addition to my D800. The other option could be a NEX-3N/5N with a 55-210 lens, but I am a bit...

I may get the X 45-175 mm for my GX1.Most online reports are good except for OIS problems. I'm getting conflicting info, including:Due to user error/bad technique.Due to Panasonic's harsh shutter.General design defect.Don't use OIS with fast shutter anyway.Fixed with updated firmware.Not fixed with updated firmware.What's the truth about the X 45-175mm? Is it a good lens?I want this lens for two reasons:General zoom versatility. I really like the zoom on my Panasonic DMC-ZS7 (25-300 mm 35...
