I have a Panasonic G6 that I purchased 16 months ago as an all round still/video camera. I love most things about it (size, features etc) however I have recently "caught" the "Aurora Australis (Southern lights)" bug and find the camera struggles with the dark areas in the night exposures (clouds/water become very grainy / muddy and not smooth) even when using an Olympus 17mm f/1.8 Lens to let as much light through as possible.  So my question is, when looking at the DXOMark low light...

I have an E-PL2 as a back-up M43 camera; my main camera is a Pany G6. I am planning a cold-weather outing on Sunday, and rather than fumble switching lenses with heavy gloves, I may just put my 14-42mm II lens on the E-PL2. I was planning to use the Pany lens instead of my Oly lens due to its high IQ and a lens hood. This lens doesn't have an on/off switch for IS, so how do I turn it off on an Oly body if I use a tripod? The E-PL2's IS menu (I use the Super Control Panel) seems to shut off...

I recently switched to the M43 system after starting out in Nikon for my first year of photography, loved the camera and lenses but hated the bulk! So I've now switched to a Panny G6 which I adore. One of the selling points for the M43 system was the vast range of legacy lenses that could be used on it and now I want to try that out! I already have the 14-42 kit zoom and the fujian 35mm(cheap so why not?) and now I'd like to see if I could get a budget pro zoom(preferably beyond the range of...

Please excuse this amateurish video question:  Since I have a Panasonic G6, is there any reason to undertake a video hack of my old GH1? Anything to gain, or should I just consign my GH1 to a bygone era?  Thanks.  /Ted

I went to order a back up camera, planned to get the g6, suddenly b&h is out and says "discontinued." Odd, not even rumors of replacements. I've also heard no g7 and focus on only gh series. Is there any other news?

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...

Hello I have recently bought a Panasonic G6, with 14-42 (early version of lens I believe). I would like to get a prime lens and would appreciate some feedback from any owners of Sigma 19mm/Panasonic 20mm, including how they perform for video ad well as stills? Many thanks Simon

Thinking of an M43 camera for my 16 yo  stepdaughter who is tired of lugging around her Nikon.  I have an E-M5 and have purchased a number of lenses over the last couple of years none of which have OIS.  I'd like to be able to share lenses with her but I'm concerned about reduced image quality if she has a camera without IBIS.  Should this be a make or break issue or would she be able to use a G6 for example, with a non-stabilized lenses?

Hi, Requesting some help... from somehone that have (or have tested) the combo I know that in general, mainly due to the stabilization, we should stick with Pana lens to the Pana bodies but... For a G6 that I own was considering buying the Oly 12-40 f2.8 instead of the Pana 12-35 f2.8, based on the much better pricing in Europe for the Oly, and the extra range, neglecting the built in stabilization, due to the fact that is short range and I already have the Oly 60 f2.8 and don't feel the need...
