The ring around the lens, which presumably covers a bayonet mount, has a little bit of play in it but won't budge when I try to turn it. Any suggestions? By the way, I used the Panasonic 52mm WA adapter on the LX7 (with tube) and it worked perfectly.

My (well maybe) E-M1 arrived late this afternoon and I have a couple of questions and a few observations.... The way my hand wraps around the grip reminds me of the D7000 grip and Imy hand feels a little crampy.  Worried if this is actually going to be an ergonomic issue after holding the camera for a while. Anyone else feel this and have a solution? On the GH(2,3,4) the monitor screen reverses so there's no danger of damaging the display while it's folded away.  The screen on the E1 is...

Well for weeks the question of wether I should add an Oly camera to kit and replace my GH-3 with an OM-D- em1.  I'm focusing (or obsessing) on lenses and have a stabilization question. The Panny system for the most part has in lens stabilization while the Oly system has in camera stabilization.  So...an Oly lens on a  GH has no stabilization.  But when you put a Panny stabilized lens on an Oly is there ever a technical conflict between the in camera stabilization and in lens stabilization or...

Hi Everyone, I have just purchased a LX7 at a good price...I am not a serious photographer, but would like to use the camera other than I auto.. Can anyone recommend settings for the camera to photograph landscape, general stuff, whilst I get my head around the cameras controls. Thanks in advance Angilee

Aside from using a manual light meter and setting the shutter and aperture manually, how do I get the LX7 to take a shot of a dimly lit night scene without the camera trying to lighten the shot to get an averagely lit scene. Would I either need to shoot raw or post-process the shot, or is there a setting that really would capture the subtlety of a dimly lit scene? Even the night scenery and handheld night settings seem to take a reading which attempts to lighten up the sky somewhat, even if I...

Hi Everyone, After much debate, I have been out and bought an LX7 today. I am not an experienced photographer and mainly take pictures for my own pleasure/memories. I am aware most operating instructions come on a cd nowadays, but was wondering if anyone knows of a dedicated book for this camera..or any special tips for getting the best out of it. Going to be a learning curve..never had a compact with manual controls! Thanks in advance Angilee

Hi guys, I recently just bought a LX7  and would like to buy another SDHC card, but I want to make sure know if a Transcend 32 GB High Speed Class 10 UHS 1 Flash Memory Card (link below) will work with no problem? I looked in the manual (page 29) and it does say SDHC/SDXC compatible but does not say UHS 1 (per above) so wanted to double check here on the forum. I was also wondering if the LX7 is able to take any advantage of the higher speed (pics & 1080p HD video) of this card vs. a standard...

I played with quick menu and when I got done it displays at the bottom of LCD Light Meter -/+3 scale, ISO #, remaing exposures, metering mode and big/fat brackets. How do I get rid of all this? I like uncluttered LCD. Thank you! --Adam Kielcz
