I normally don't need a long lens except for the few times a year I attend soccer matches. In medium-to-large stadiums where I'm usually seated my trusty 20mm prime doesn't do much good for shots of the players and action. I assume I'll want something with 100-150mm at the long end (I'm typically seated 100-200 feet away). I'm looking for something I can pick up cheaply off ebay (or Amazon or elsewhere). I don't mind if it's old, or not as good as another model at the same focal length, or...

Hi, I have a GH1 body with these lenses: m43: Panny 14-140mm f/4-5.6, Panny 20mm f/1.7 FD: Elicar 35mm f/2.8, Canon 50mm f/1.8 Universal-to-FD: Soligor 90-210mm f/4 C-Mount: 24mm f/1.4. I'm thinking of picking up a smaller body to be used with the primes, especially the 20mm, so that I actually bring out the camera more often rather than anything else. I do not care about high ISO performance, the highest I ever go is ISO 400, usually ISO-100. Cost being an issue, I am thinking of picking up...

After much thoughts i've narrowed it down to these 2. My main purpose is holiday shooting. I can get both for under £200. I know these cameras are very different but the dxo mark on the P330 is actually higher with better dynamic range (54 v 50) and starts with a lower ISO. Which one would you go for? And if you own one what do you think  of it? thanks.

Hi Folks: I want to upgrade from P&S. I saw these 3 cameras on sale (Boxing Day). 1) Panasonic DMC-GF3 with G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ($299 Cdn)                                     2) Panasonic DMC-GF5 with G Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 Standard zoom ($299 Cdn)                   3) Sony NEX-5R with 18-55mm Lens ($399 Cdn) I like the GF5 but is the GF3 with the X PZ lens a better deal? Sony 5R at $399 is also very tempting. Any suggestion is appreciated. Fumanchu

Hi All: I am a novice and I have a PS camera Fuji f31. I saw Boxing day sale for Panasonic Lumix mirrorless camera. 1) Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 with G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6                                            2) Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 with LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Both cost $299 Cdn. I read a lot of reviews and find the GF5 a slight improvement over the GF3. However, the GF3 comes with the PZ lens (heard it is quirky, though recent Amazon buyers seem to find it ok). Please...

First of all my apologies for bringing up this subject again, and also please note I do not want to start a Pana-Oly battle here!The question is this: From several threads in this forum I somehow got the idea that (some?) Oly cameras are more prone to shutter shock than (some?) Pana's. Is this correct, or did I get it wrong?The reason I'm asking is that last week I picked up a cheap Oly E-PM1 as a camera for my wife who wants to step up from her p&s, and also as a back-up for my own camera....

I was trying to take a shot of the moon tonight.  For some reason, there appears to be a reflection of the moon in all of my pictures.  This hasn't happened before. Here is a sample - the reflection is a circle to the right of the clouds. Any ideas or suggestions?  I would also appreciate any suggestions for taking a clear picture of the moon, itself.  Thanks for helping. Russ

I am normally a DSLR user but have acquired a GF5 and 14mm pancake.  Could you recommend a nice small pouch just to keep the kit protected when in larger bags?  Doesn't need a neckstrap or anything as it will be in other bags or the camera will be in use, so just something nice and small to avoid scratches. I would go try camera shops nearby but with the demise of Jessops there's nowhere nearby with a decent range I don't think.  Many thanks, and I appreciate your suggestions, Matt --Student...

I'm looking for a waterproof case that can handle up to 18m (60 feet). I'm having trouble finding something that can go deep enough. I'll only be using this housing for 3-4 outings, so I'd prefer something inexpensive (under $100 would be nice) or easy to resell. I don't mind using one of those bags that are made to fit many different brands/models of cameras. I'll be using the 20mm pancake lens.Any ideas or experience?
