Just wondering what folks are using for a flash for their X Vario. Does the Leica SF26 work with XV? Or should I stick to the CF22? Or would the Metz Mecablitz 26 AF-1 (which the SF26 seems a copy of) work? I'm looking for something that doesn't add too much bulk to the camera. Any help would be appreciated. --See my profile for equipment.
I am considering an X Vario for a walk around/landscape camera. I enjoy using an arca swiss tripod head. Any l brackets or bottom plates that fit appropriately. I found it interesting the RRS didn't have one for this camera (or the X1/X2). Thanks. --Joe - Southeastern PA
Thanks to advice I received on another thread, I've decided to purchase a Panasonic GM5. Because I already own an Olympus 9-18mm, I'm thinking of selling the 12-32mm kit lens that comes with the camera and purchasing both the Panasonic GX Vario PZ 14-42mm lens and the new compact Panasonic 35-100mm lens. Those are three compact zooms that can fit with the little camera in a side pack. The issue in the plan for me is the shutter shock widely reported (at some shutter speeds) on the 14-42mm...
Has anyone tried the GM1 with the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42? Compared to the standard 12 to 32mm kit lens, it would be 25g heavier, 5mm wider diameter, and 3mm longer, it might be worth it for the longer focal length (28 to 84mm vs. 24 to 64mm equivalent), particularly for portraits. Don't know if I could find the body/14-42 lens combination for the same price as the standard kit though.
