Hello I am going to India in November for what I hope will be the trip of a lifetime. My plan is to take my GM5 with my Olympus 9-18 attached and my G5 with my Lumix 14-45 and 45 -150. I love both these lenses and have had great results with them but wonder if the Lumix 14-140 F3.5 would be a better choice as I would not have to do any lens changes which from an environmental, (dust), and security, (hey, look what he's got) perspective might be a better solution than the 14-45 and 45-150. I...

Hello i have just taken delivery of a GM5 and am generally very impressed with the picture quality and the small size. Best point and shoot I've ever had! One issue is the tiny flash included with the GM5. It is really week and requires getting very close to the subject even with maximum flash exposure compensation. I have tried to use my Metz 24-AF1 but the camera doesn't seem to operate the flash properly. All the pictures are completely washed out by the flash even with minimum flash...

Hi everyone. First, some background. My wife currently has an ageing Canon 450D and 60mm macro lens as her main "proper" camera. However, because of the weight/size, she has started to use it less. Her Canon G11 compact camera became faulty so she now has a Panasonic G1 + 12-32 as her carry anywhere camera. Given that I already have an assortment of M4/3 bodies and lenses, it makes sense for her to consider moving to M4/3 completely if she decides to downsize her main body. She would prefer a...

Hello there. I've got a couple question, but first off, I'm a complete noob when it comes to cameras and English is my second language, so please go easy on me. So I own a Lumix G5 (with a 14-42mm lense) since 2014 and I've been pretty happy with it so far. I mostly do light painting with it and it does its job. Except when it comes to Star Photography. Even with maxed out focus, stars only appear blurry. My questions: Could I buy a different Lense with infinite focus, or is that a limitation...

Can anyone tell me if the oly. 200mm lens ( 515g ) + a compatible adapter put too much stress on the Panasonic G5 mounting flange without using a tripod mounted adapter? I guess what I'm asking is, do I need a tripod mounted adapter? The lens doesn't feel like it is too heavy to mount directly to the camera with the adapter. Thanks in advance. Edit.. If not I would mount camera and lens directly to a tripod??

I hope this has not been asked before. I am considering getting the above mentioned lens. I think it is a fully manual lens. If it is does that mean I can (with a basic adapter) have full control of aperture, shutter, and ISO  functions using manual mode on the G5. I know I wouldn't have AF obviously. Would this be a decent lens for wildlife, sitting bird, and macro pictures using a tripod in decent light? Thanks. Jerry

I have still been looking at both Panasonic vs Olympus.  Took a look at latest blog Thom Hogan has online, and he came up with the same small body camera that I had already zeroed onto that he is thinking of keeping.  I dropped him a note what I was looking at and he warned me about the menu.  I went to a local camera store and took a look at the Olympus body and it was a perfect fit.  The salesman said that he had owned the camera but ended up selling it as the menu was just to hard to...

Just wondering if anyone has attempted using a legacy long zoom adapted to m4/3 for wildlife photography?  I am looking at getting a Panasonic 100-300mm for wildlife photography on my G5 and just thought, would it be wise to try to find an older 200-400mm manual lens and adapt it. Ultimate goal would be sharp, clear images at a low cost. suggestions welcome.

I've loved my G5 since I bought it 2.5 years ago. I've brought it all over the place and have consistently gotten great pics. All of a sudden, the other day, I went out to shoot some family portraits and it got SOO SLOOOOW. I didn't change any settings, batteries were fully charged, decent memory card etc. Nothing had changed except the speed of the camera. It refused to shoot in burst mode, the shutter was really slow, even in auto mode and processing between pictures took forever. I tried...
