I"ve just replaced my old LX5 with the LX7 and would like to keep and use the LWA52 wide angle lens,,  I understand that I need to purchase a KIWI tube adaptor which I can get from Germany via Amazon,   now when I bought the LX7 it came with a full printed manual, but having looked all the way through it I still cannot see how I would attach the KIWI tube.

Having sorted out a FZ200 replacement for my FZ150, I wondered if you guys could help me with a question regarding the LX5 / LX7 Simply,, will the LVF-1 viewfinder, LA6 + LWA52 adaptor tube and wide lens and spare battery that I have/use with my LX5 also fit and work on the LX7 or would I need to "start again" with these bits. Also with the cosy of buying these ""add on"s"" along with the camera, would the outlay be worth it for the better camera / iq that the LX7 would supposedly give me,,...

The more I think about it, the more I will opt for the GH4R. I did find a good deal for the GH2, which I could hack and all, but I am not so sure about using a hacked system. And I checked most of the GH2 hacked video samples. They look pretty good, and they would better blend with the LX100 than the current old LX5 and the beloved LX3 I have (no 1080p, either). Maybe I am unconsciously biased, but I like the GH4 video quality better. I see the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 (€200) seems close...

I am wrestling with the title question and no one I have talked to can answer it...yet. The Nikon P900 can go to 2000mm optical. But this is not about the P900. The question is really "how far away can a long lens resolve feather/eye detail in a large bird...eagle for example.  Here is my argument..... I believe that a lens must have some optical properties tied to physics that says for example that any lens can resolve small detail only to a limited distance. Beyond that distance the lens or...

I never use my Canon T3i with kit lens because it's too big. I'm basically happy with my Pany LX7 but I'd like more flexibility. I shoot mostly street photography which it's great for but I had just ok results inside churches in Italy and Paris. It wasn't quite wide enough for the Duomo in Florence either. I'd like to be able to take occasional night shots when I am in Florida and maybe zoom in on some wild life during the day, maybe an occasional bird. So, if I am mostly happy with the...

What is the longest time have you used the camera doing straight 4K video? Have you experienced any overheating for long usage? I have an LX7 and have used the video 1080 to the maximum 29+ mins, it will create a file but will continue shooting video and create another file with no problem. I've done this several times, up to 3 continues files with no issues of overheating. Just wondering if using 4K will have overheating issues or any other issues I'm looking to get the LX100 or ZS100 in...

I know this group is asked this numerous times so I will be brief. I own a Panasonic LX7. I am quite happy with it. Only real complaint is indoor low light could be better. I will keep it as the travel or generally all around camera. I am looking to take the SLR plunge. I am a pretty good photographer, but can and would like to learn more. WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR I am a dad looking take pictures of family, kids, events, etc. These can be portrait style, posed shots, portraits and spontaneous...
