I've been using a GF1 for some time now both with legacy lenses and m4/3 lenses, but I want to move to a bigger body. I know the e-3 is an older body but I guess my thinking is the money that I save towards the body I can put into lenses. I was thinking of first picking up the 12-60mm lens to go with the e-3 and then afterwards maybe a prime 35 or 50mm. Any thoughts regarding this would be much appreciated. I'm open to hearing alternative options. Thanks!

What if Canon had produced the LX100? Let’s pretend for a moment that Canon had announced a camera with the LX100’s exact specs and Panasonic had announced a camera with the G7X’s specs. Would you still buy the Canon LX100 or would you have stuck with the Panasonic G7X? How much does brand loyalty play into your decision for cameras that don’t use interchangeable lenses? I wonder if things would be different if Canon and Nikon suddenly started producing cameras that had the same...

I haven’t seen anything that says what “RGB + IR photometry sensor of new 150000 pixel” is. Could RGB + IR photometry sensor mean that some of the pixels are reading IR light to reduce luminescence noise in very low light? In astrophotography we remove the filters from our cameras so that they can see UV and IR light. Then we put very specific filters back on which allow us to just see the light we want. I have several modified cameras that I have also tested in daylight. The data(UV and IR...

I have the GH4 and the 35-100mm F2.8 already. I also have the 25mm F1.4 lens and the 14mm F2.5 lens. However, I shoot mostly video and so I really need image stabilization even with the wider angles. I had considered buying the 12-35mm F2.8 lens but now the LX100 is giving me pause. Its multi-aspect ratio sensor will give me a wider field of view in the 16:9 video mode. It will also give me a more compact wide to medium solution. In fact I could fit the GH4, 35-100mm, 25mm F1.4, and the LX100...

I have a Panasonic 7-14mm modified (using Anders W method of installing the 8.5mm fish-eye rear filter holder) to take gel filters. I have two different 75mmx75mm Kodak Wratten gelatin filter sheets - one is ND 0.9, the other is 2B. I want to install these filters (and swap them in the field, while hiking) - the first to shoot running water/etc., the second to get rid of the purple blobbing issue which is somehow really bad on my lens. Questions: a. How do I figure out which size to cut? Is...

I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

Hello again to you all. After many months of study I spotted a very good (and price balanced) Flash-System-Set for my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1. Now I have two "Yongnuo YN-560 - Mark III" Flashes and a couple of "Yongnuo RF-603 C" Triggers. The first problem that I found was that these triggers didn't works fine with GF1, so I had to modified one of them thanks to this precious DPpreview article (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/39536790). Now with the modified trigger linked on top of my...

Hello to everybody. I have a Panasonic GF1 but I miss the viewfinder in my old reflex. I tried the DMW-LVF1 but was terrible, today I discovered that exist the DMW-LVF2 that everebody loves. Checking in the web I found this page (http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/connect/gf1.html) that seems to indicate that is not full-compatible but I would like to ask to someone in this forum if it's true or if someone have different experiences of DMW-LVF2 and GF1. Thanks. G.

I just bought the Panasonic 12-35 mm f/2.8 lens to use on my GF1. I noticed that one of the GF1 firmware updates a few years ago included the ability to turn off the in-body stabilization of the GF1 when used with an earlier Panasonic zoom lens. Apparently this does not apply to the new 12-35 (which also has stabilization), as there is no "off" option in the camera. I assume I should turn off the stabilization in the lens, as I can't turn it off in the GF1. But if Panasonic decides to update...
