Hi There... I'm upgrading from introDSLR to mirrorless camera.  My priority qualities of a cam and objectives are : Excellent photo image quality   Excellent for videos (like amateur film projects)   Value for money since I'm still starting and still evaluating my preferences as I use the cam more often.  I'm eyeing on 2 models : Panasonic Gx7 vs Gx8  (meets objective 1&2) - I saw in most forums that specs are almost the same but the Gx8 is more expensive.   Now-- the question is objective...

Hello, all, I need help! I've been shooting with Lumix MFT for years but the new Sony a6300 has convinced me to move in that direction. But... The problem is long zoom lenses. The Lumix 100-300mm is a great lens that gives 600mm equivalent at the long end. (Lumix GX7 also has a lens crop digital zoom that gives even more range with lower resolution but no resampling or degredation.) I really need at least this much reach for shooting surfing and wildlife. So: the longest Sony e-mount zoom...

I have still been looking at both Panasonic vs Olympus.  Took a look at latest blog Thom Hogan has online, and he came up with the same small body camera that I had already zeroed onto that he is thinking of keeping.  I dropped him a note what I was looking at and he warned me about the menu.  I went to a local camera store and took a look at the Olympus body and it was a perfect fit.  The salesman said that he had owned the camera but ended up selling it as the menu was just to hard to...

I'm new to photography and only take random street photos with GX7 on the way to work and back home. I have knee problems which makes me hard to bend, since I'm 1.89m tall and I often need to lower my camera for candid photos, I rely heavily on the tilt EVF of GX7. Seeing the releases of newer models, including E-M5 ii as well as Pen F, I realised my knee problem has limited the range of cameras I can choose. I know GX8 has a tilty EVF and it's better than the one on my GX7, but the size is...

i was looking at a few lens reviews and went to dxomark. noticed that the P-Mpix score for the 15mm 1.7 is only 5 when on the gm1 its 11 and gm5 its 10?? i don't understand why that is when all three use the same sensor as the gx7? or am i wrong? what am i missing. http://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Panasonic/Panasonic-Leica-DG-Summilux-15mm-F17-ASPH-mounted-on-Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GX7__901 i've noticed that the gx7 scores low in P-Mpix (sharpness) for other lens's as well.

I just saw an article in m43rumors.com, and the editor begins with the statement: "The PEN-F is a camera that polarized the 43 community"... I don't think this is true. It might be controversial, mostly because of lack of weather sealing, and high price, but to call it that it polarized us, I think is over the board. It remembers me the same reaction the Nikon Df had upon introduction. This is not the case here, I believe. The PEN-f have very valid and useful features for the street shooter,...

Wish to move from an ASP-C dSLR to M4/3 camera. I got my mind set on either the Olympus E-M10 II or Panasonic G7. The GX7 style doesn't appeal much to me. I come to realize that both cameras got their strengths and weaknesses. Wish to make a decision so I can start shooting some photos. I've absorbed little bits of information from numerous user experiences, skimmed through a few reviews and read some blogs such as those by Robin Wong. Best of all, I went to a store to handle both cameras for...

On my GX7, I like using manual focus but I cannot find in the operation manual the way to keep the focusing area in the middle of the screen, fixed, and not be affected by the four sides wheel or touch screen. Thank you, --Alain Antoine Turgeon

I own the Panasonic GX7 and have loved it.  I set it up to take photos of our bird feeder using the video function.  After watching a few of the videos on the camera, it froze up.  The camera couldn't be shut off (green light stayed on) and I had to remove the battery in order to watch video until it again froze up.  First time this has happened.  When it did happen, you couldn't shut the camera off (light wouldn't turn off) and you couldn't take a still photo until after you removed the...

Recently sold all of my camera DSLR gear and making the move to Micro Four Thirds / Mirrorless. The primary reason for this move, as I think is one of the huge benefits of this system, is size. I enjoyed my DSLR, but I hate carrying it and the lenses everywhere. I end up using nothing but my camera phone on hikes because I never want to lug all the gear. I primarily photograph portraits, street, and landscape. The camera systems mentioned are in the price range I'm looking for (including...
