Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am thinking of getting purchasing of these panasonic bodies. I will mostly be using the 12-32mm lens and maybe get a 45mm or 75mm olympus lens at some point. Here in UK, the cheapest I can get a GX1 body for about £170 or a GM1 body for about £290. Is GM1 worth the extra money if we dont count the smaller physical size? GX7 is out of consideration due to higher price range. I was wondering if anyone who has experience with these two bodies can help. Also...

Hello, I'm having a senior moment with my GX1 and EVF. :( I'm so use to using touch on back LCD to AF, that I can't remember how to move the AF point using the rear dial. Where in the menu do I find /change to set camera for rear dial control of AF target? Or should I just let the camera auto AF? The reason I ask is I will be going on a big boat Alaska cruise this month, and will be taking a small boat whale watching excursion.  I  want to shoot the sea life using EVF and rear dial to change...

My girlfriend and I were away recently and wandered into a Lomography store in Antwerp, Belgium. She'd heard the term "lomography", but didn't know what it was, nor had she heard of Lomo, Holga or any of the toy lenses that are out there. She'd been having a lot of fun shooting with our GX1 and was really intrigued by the idea of dirt cheap lenses and crappy image quality. ;-) The funny thing was, she really liked the "accidental" shots we found every time I transferred the days' shots to my...

Hello, Thinking of adding the Oly 45mm f/1.8 to my lens collection. For small travel kit: 7-14, 25PL, and Oly 45(?). But concerned I might not get sharp pictures since my Panny GX1 does not have IBIS. Usually follow the rule of 1/focal length for minimum shutter speed or shot on iA/P modes. Any caveats, like dreaded shutter shock, from using this lens on the GX1? Have any examples of pics taken with lens on Panny non-IBIS camera?   Especially typical travel pics. And, thanks for advice.

I've been using my GX1 for a while now, and up to this point have been just using the lcd screen for composing pictures.  I'm interested in having a camera with viewfinder as I think it will help improve my compositions.  What are your thoughts on buying a LVF2 for $150 vs selling/giving away my current gear and upgrading to something like the GX7 or the OMD-EM5?

I have micro 4/3 body with m. zuiko 14-42mm II r and i am thinking of expanding my gear with oly 45mm and 17mm f1.8 so i checked some site reviews and some user reviews. Also i was bored and i decided to compare my 14-42 to canon's 17-55mm f2.8 and to my surprise my lens had slightly less distortion, a lot less vignetting and in terms of resolution according to photozone my oly is on par and actually better in some cases. The only thing that the canon lens did better was control of CA. I find...

Dear all, I just came out to work right now and bought a D610 body (Used to have a d90 kit when I was still a uni student) and current have a af 35mm f2, tamron 70-300 vc and a Tokina 11-16 f2.8 (1st generation). I am going to get a standard lens and a flash soon (But I cannot buy all at once, since my parents are gonna go mad on me) So I am thinking between the combination of a AF 28-105 (without D) / AF 28-85 D / AF 24-120 D with a sb-700, or a Sigma 24-105 (for nikon) on it's own, then the...

When I set the GX1 to M on the mode dial and take a series of shots for a time lapse (w/ Michron), the exposure setting can vary from shot to shot. That's not how manual exposure should work. The iA button is definitely turned off. And I tried resetting the camera to factory settings. Any ideas?

Hey guys, anyone know how I can find out the number of shutter actuations on my GX1 as I want to sell the camera and include this info? --"When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence." Ansell Adams.

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...
