Hi, on july I'll travel to Japan, so I'm looking for a small case for my Panasonic Lumix GX80 (GX85) + kit lenses (12-32 and 35-100) + spare batteries. I'll probably travel with a rucksack, so I'm considering a product like Manfrotto NX-SB-IBU-2 ( What do you think, is this a good solution? Can you advice me another product? Thanks

Hello everybody, I just received a brand new 35-100mm F4-5.6 and I saw that there is dust inside. I made a few test shots and couldn't see any dust in the pictures. The seller told me he would exchange it to another one. Should I do it? The lens is extremely sharp in my opinion and I don't want to receive a less sharp copy. What do you think?
I'm considering this in addition to my Fuji X-T20 w/18-55 f2.4-4 as a 2 camera lightweight travel kit to avoid lens changes. I guess I'm worried that I'll be disappointed in the image quality on the Panasonic.

I am looking for a very compact short to medium telelens with OIS, and the relatively new Pana. 35-100 f4-5.6 OIS seems to be just what I am looking for. As I want real compactness I must accept the relatively slow aperture. I own the other two lenses mentioned above, and I would like the opinion from people using the Pana. 35-100  and one or both other lenses how the 35-100 lens compares to the two lenses mentioned above at corresponding f.l. and apertures. I am mostly interested in...
When talking about the great, cheap Olympus 40-150, reviews say to avoid using it past 100. Does anyone have experience comparing the small Panasonic 35-100 f/4-5.6 to this Olympus lens? The size is pretty significantly different, but the Olympus is still quite light, if cheap-feeling. Thoughts?
I want the lens but I want to see how it compares to the Panasonic and Olympus kit zooms. I can't wait to see/read the reviews!
