Hi, I recently bought an E-M10 body and want to match it with a suitable small lens - I already have the Panny 14mm F2.5 and 20mm F1.8. Some of my test shots with the 14mm showed significant purple fringing in high contrast areas, which is apparently a common issue with Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies - http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56146691. (The same scene shot with my G5 and the 14mm lens showed no fringing at all.) I use Rawtherapee to process my raw files and, although it...

I'm beginning to shoot video for my youtube channel, and eventually will need to research on post processing, including color grading. But not only for the channel, but for the upcoming project that is on the oven right now. I only have access right now to a Panasonic G3, a G5 and a Olympus E-M10. I plan to get a new body by the end of the year, but mostly depending on the new E-M10 Mark II that is about to be unveiled soon, and if the project takes off as expected, of course. Now, I haven't...

I currently have a Panasonic G5, which meets most of my needs. However, I like to have a second body and am thinking of the EM10, given its current price and Olympus cashback (in the UK). The main advantages for me of the EM10 are: IBIS so I can use my non-stabalized lenses at lower speeds then the G5 Focus peaking which will help with focusing my non-AF lenses and with my 4/3 35mm macro lens (where AF is very slow) Viewfinder stabilization which should help composition/focusing, especially...

As per the title, I can't decide between the Panasonic 20mm F1.7, Panasoinc-Leica 25mm F1.4 or the Olympus 25mm F1.8. Between reading several comparisons, the main merits seem to be as follows: PL25 F1.4: 0.66EV Brighter than the others Cleanest and smoothest bokeh Lens Hood provided Oly25 F1.8: Fastest and most silent autofocus Sharper performance corner to corner at wider apertures Least chromatic aberrations P20 F1.7: Some also claim this to have better bokeh than the PL25 F1.4 but it...

I have a 11-22 lens that I find excellent on the E620, even at 11mm f2.8 it's plenty sharp and accurate . Although it's not CDAF compatible I have tried it on a 16 mp G5 and a 12mp Epl-2 with adapters . Results are good in the center but quite poor on the edges, and that was tripod mounted with magnified MF . The old 4/3 14-42 kit lens and the Pana14-50 were much better , so that i would not hesitate to use them regularly with adapter if I wished . One review I read had one guy stating that...

The mistake is all mine. I own it. I just bought a used G5 off eBay and wanted to upgrade the firmware. It seemed to freeze up when I was transferring it to the camera, so before I could think, I turned the camera off. Now the camera is dead. I've removed and fully charged the battery, but nothing lights up. Any ideas as to what happened? Any guess what Panasonic is going to charge me to fix it?

I just ordered my new camera and I need to get a mouse for my photo editing PC where I will run Photoshop, Lightroom, and some other photo editing software. I know that gaming mice are the best for photo editing and graphical design (because of their precision and things like that) so I have narrowed down my options to the Logitech G502 (Wired) or the Logitech G602 (Wireless). The Logitech G502 is one of the most popular gaming mice and is a Amazon #1 Bestseller in PC Gaming Mice and Mac...

I just picked up a Panasonic GM5.  Really enjoying this little cam so far, but I am having some trouble customizing it similar to my previous Pana cameras. On my G5, I have set the Fn1 button (AF/AE Lock) to initiate AF lock, and the shutter button to only lock exposure. To do this, I had to set three menu items in the "custom rec" menu: - "AF/AE Lock" to "AF"- "AF/AE Lock Hold" to "Off", and- "Shutter AF" to "Off" This works on the G5.  But I can't figure out how to accomplish the same thing...

I shoot at a maximum of ISO 800 , mostly with primes and an in my bag 14-140 zoom. I currently use the Olympus M5, even with a non-OEM grip I do not enjoy the handling of this camera. Also the ridiculous design of the eye cup guarantees it will be knocked off the camera in normal use. The EVF and IQ are outstanding, however the ergonomics just leaves me cold. I like the size and ergonomics of both the GH3 and G5/G6 models . I realize I will lose IBIS and high ISO quality  as well as weather...

I am looking to buy a new camera primarily for my wife and also for my occasional use My hands shake a lot and image stabilization is a big criteria for me. Also I would love to have manual zoom options which I can play around with. outdoors and zoom would be a plus but I am not sure if I can carry around huge lens for that purpose. I have a canon s3 IS and have rarely used it despite the fact that it takes good pictures and videos. My wife (primary user of the camera) could be taking lots of...
