Hi all! Long time lurker here ... ;-) I currently own a Pana DMC-G3 that I got for trips (I was tired of my Wife complaining about being "Head Sherpa In Charge of the 70-200 L-Series Lens" {Grin} (and sometimes the 24-70 L-Series!). Although I have to give it to her - she's fast with a lens cap, no sensor dust here, thank you. LOL Have a great collection of Canon glass that I'll be parting with soon. This M4/3 setup has won me over. All the goodness, none of the weight! I have it setup with...

Hi Folks, I picked up a FlashAir card to go with my new XZ-2 with a view to using my phone as a remote commander, via the Remote Control function in the Olympus Image Share app. I've had a ton of fun just getting the FlashAir to show up on my list of WiFi networks but now that I've achieved that, it seems like all I can do is import pics.  Silly me for thinking that the only real value of pairing the XZ-2 with a FlashAir card is so as to have a Remote Control built into my phone for whenever...

Hi All, the fantastic suggestions from members of this forum, has guided me to choose the GX7 as my M43 body - (to be replacing my nine year old D200 setup). My question is the following:  Is there a model number/ MFR# / etc. that differentiates the BLACK US GX7 from the BLACK JAPANESE GX7?   There are a number of sellers on Ebay right now with the GX7 @ under $600 and the two that i am looking at claim to have the US model.  I just would like another way of being sure, so that i can...

This camera body is brand new to me and there is something I have not noticed in my other Lumix bodies. With a full charged battery, the LCD screen will go blank for a second or two and then come back on. Not after it has sat idle. Is there something I can adjust to prevent this? I have looked through the manual and I have not found the answer. Thanks, John

Hi there! It has been a while since I last posted here. I am trying to decide between the 20mm F1.7 Panasonic lense and the 17mm F1.8 Olympus lens. I have heard time and time again that the focus speeds on the Panasonic lenses are "glacially slow" though it is an optically very sharp lens producing nice bookeh. When watching Youtube videos that attempt to show this I find the focus speeds still well below 1 second on decently lit conditions. In dark conditions, it is around (bit still a...

Hi Folks, Just picked up a reconditioned XZ-2 & wanted to check the shutter count but can't seem to find anything on that. Can find it for all the PENs, the XZ-1, etc. but NOT the XZ-2. There is a ton of advice suggesting that this method may work on the XZ-2 but it doesn't so if anyone truly in the know can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

I am in the process of offloading my m43 system which consists of 2 GX7 bodies and an EM1 with lenses ranging from 24-120mm (35mm equivalent). I have already pre-ordered my x100T having sold my x100S a while back. My question is are the conversion lenses for the x100 line sufficient enough to use as a system? I am not opposed to investing in an XT1 in order to move from Panny and Oly gear to all Fuji but was just wondering how well the conversion lenses work.  I primarily shoot at 24mm, 35mm...

A new owner of a Lumix GX7, I'm concerned (read disappointed) by the graininess it produces. Are there camera settings I can use that can significantly reduce it?

Hello all, first post on here! I'm after a bit of advice, I'm finally taking the plunge and about to order a Panasonic GX7 with the 20mm F1.7 II ASPH lens. However, it's not stabilised and neither is the body of the GX7 in video mode. I've also heard it can be a bit noisy, although some people on here seem to say it's not so bad.. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good, stabilised lens for video capture?? Just starting out in the world of mirrorless 'proper' cameras, my last camera being a...

I am on the verge of getting a new camera, moving up from Canon 1000D with Tamron 17-50mm F2.8. My options now are the Sony A6000 and Pana GX7.  There's also the FZ1000 and RX10, however I'm a little concerned with the lack of DoF for those two, even though video quality looks stellar for the price. I am currently geared towards the PAna GX7 despite the small viewfinder and it being old at this point.  I feel it has the right balance between photo and video quality for me.  On the other hand,...
