Has anyone tried the GM1 with the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42? Compared to the standard 12 to 32mm kit lens, it would be 25g heavier, 5mm wider diameter, and 3mm longer, it might be worth it for the longer focal length (28 to 84mm vs. 24 to 64mm equivalent), particularly for portraits. Don't know if I could find the body/14-42 lens combination for the same price as the standard kit though.

So I'm pretty new to photography, got myself a Panasonic GM1 earlier this year along with the 12-32mm kit lens, this suited me pretty well starting off as a beginner. Recently after quite a bit of online research bought myself a Panasonic 20mm f1.7 to give me some nice bokeh portrait shots, I'm enjoying this combination so far. That is until last night where there was the lunar eclipse, I realised both my lenses hardly gave me any zoom at all (got a few shots with the digital zoom...but...

I recently purchased a Panasonic GM1, and discovered that there is no raw update for this camera for Photoshop CS5. This means I would have to buy CS6 or subscribe to the Creative Cloud software, and I don't want to do either thing. I am very happy with CS5, and have no desire to spend a ton for new software. OK, so I figured I could just use the Silkypix software that came with the camera. But that's a no go too, because Silkypix will not work with Win7 64 bit operating systems. So my option...

It's straight forward to carry GM1/5 and kit lens around. Any bag for compact digital camera will do. Knowing that the main lens should be the kit lens, how can one handily carry the new 35-100 lens along as a go-anywhere system without resorting to regular camera bag with shoulder strap? I have Lowepro bag to carry 43rd camera but it's so much an overkill for GM1. Thanks.

Interested to see how this lens will compare with 35-100mm f2.8 which is superb. The new lens is compact for sure, but unless it offers excellent image quality (or costs noticeably less than the existing 45-175mm PZ lens, which fits and works very well with the GM1), consider the longer PZ lens as a viable alternative. It may be 50% heavier and almost twice as long, however it handles well on the GM1 and gives you almost twice the reach at the same aperture range! The gap between 32mm (kit...

I recently purchased the Panasonic GM1 and am loving the images I get compared to my LX3. One question I have is about the HDR mode:  I took several pictures in HDR and many of them came out as double images.  I assume it is because I turned the camera off before it had finished processing the image.  Is there any way I can salvage these photos through editing or is all lost? These were shot in jpeg, not RAW.

I've been considering buying a Panasonic GM1 with the kit lens, but it seems that none of the major photo stores (B&H, Adorama, Unique, etc.) stock the black camera. Why? Is there not a high demand for these vs. the silver body/lens? I know they carry the black GM1's at Henry's in Canada, but why don't the U.S. stores have 'em? --StevenN

So if I don't stick to Panasonic there's quite a choice - and even if I do, it seems that lenses which appear better in terms of spec may be older and therefore not perform as well. So I thought as a relative M4/3rds n00b I'd frame the question in terms of what I'd be doing: For a comparative shoot-off against the Leica X2 (purely for my own benefit, to see if it is at all realistic to use the GM1 + pancake as a stand-in), what pancake should I get for the GM1? Compactness is obviously a key...

The tiny lenscap on the GM1 kit lens is driving me mad. Mad I tell you. What I'd ideally like to do is to replace it with some sort of super hardwearing full-time filter so that I can just twist and go. Is there such a thing? Or failing that, how about if I just buy a bucketload of budget-but-reasonably-robust 37mm filters and throw them away when they scratch? Any recommendations for that rolet?

Hello everybody! I own 5-years old Olympus PEN E-P1 and I want to buy a new camera and I can't decide which one. Most of the new cameras are better than mine, they can take photos at 25600 which is similar to 6400 in E-P1. That's ok, any new camera will produce better looking photos, but... Look at these screenshots: http://prntscr.com/4a36hu http://prntscr.com/4a36p9 They show the comparison of 4 cameras in the New studio comparison tool in DPREVIEW. What I compare is the quality of RAW...
