New GX7 owner..... I'm trying to be able to use the pop-up for fill but only seem to be able to force the flash in the C1-C3 settings and not PASM. The manual says I should be able to adjust flash settings in PASM. What am I missing?

I once had a link to a video where someone went through the entire setup instructions for the GX7. This is a terrific camera but some of the printed instructions are not that clear to me. Can someone point me to the video on setting up the GX7?

I have both cameras, came to digital photography very late in life (72), learning curve has been long but fairly smooth. Except for one problem:  I have read on many sites how to start renumbering in-camera files on the memory card, but I can't find any explanation, including in the advanced owner manuals, of how to download from the camera to the PC only the new pictures.  When I start a download, even with a new numbering run, the camera transfers ALL the pix to my PC (Windows 7 64bit). ...

Reading through the manual for the GX7 (arrives tomorrow!) I find that the 20mm/1.7 doesn't do C-AF on the GX7. Is there a list of lenses that do? I keep thinking that I'm missing something when I look through Panasonic's tech support site, and my Google searches aren't telling me anything about the potential compatibility of Olympus lenses. Please feel free to show me where I should have looked!

Will the Wasabi battery for the GX7 charge properly in the Panasonic charger? i am asking because I charged the battery until the green light went out and when I just put it in the camera it was completely dead.  Will try charging it again   thanks --Michael BowerAshburn, VA

Hi, I'm a student journalist who also has quite an interest in photography and television/video news (those are my two specialisms on my degree). Basically I love my D5100 but am starting to find numerous shortcomings that are bugging me. I'm semi-settled on two alternatives I liked which I am going to try soon in a shop are the GX7(more cheap lenses, better video, image stabilization and looks sexy) and the Sony a6000(good AF, apsc sensor and great image quality), but I'm not 100% sure which...

Hi guys, As the subject suggests, I'm looking for a soft case for a GX7 with 20mm f/1.7 II attached. This is made very difficult by the viewfinder bit sticking out at the back. I've been to a dozen shops in my area, and none of the soft cases fit. I ended up buying this one from Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JIYDNXU But it only fits (snugly) sans lens. Does anyone know of a so ft case that will fit the GX7 with the 20mm lens attached?  I'm not necessarily looking for...

I could save a few bucks by getting a used GX7 with the 20mm ƒ/1.7 lens, a UV filter, a second battery and some kind of a GX7 learning book. Used price is €500, which translates to $626. The photos of the camera look fine, but it's a private sale so I have no warranty or anything. I've been playing with the thought of getting the 20mm package, the cheapest I can get it here is aroun €800, so I'd be saving more than €300. Should I go for it? Is the 20mm a good starter lens? On my D90 I use the...

Hi I'm eying a GX7, and my only worry is how swiftly it can autofocus with the Olympus 14-42 IIR. I know Panasonic has some optimizations for their own lenses, but I'm a little concerned that I'd be losing something compared to an E-PL5. (And yes, I'm down to choosing between an E-PL5 and a GX7, something I never thought I'd be doing. I'm very happy to have the problem!)
