I was wondering for anybody who might know, is there anything I should be aware of if using a lens adapter on a GX7, or on Panny bodies in general? I wanted to make sure AF does indeed work and there are no hidden tricks behind it. Also, I was looking at the Vello and FotodioX brands. Anything good or bad about those, or should I look at another instead? (looks as the only other one listed is the splash proof Olympus, not sure how big a deal that is for me). Lastly, are there any lenses that...

Simple question, hopefully simple answer. I have a chance to pick up a good priced EM5 if I want. My GX7 is great in most ways, video, silent mode, S-AF is super fast. My only real complaint is C-AF. Many of my shots aren't bothered by this, but sometimes I must wait for less movement. The better IBIS would also help at times, such as available light macro. Mostly interested in EM5 AF tracking from anybody who has a comparative experience, thanks in advance. --"Run to the light, Carol Anne....

So im refining my future plans in regards to my gear setup. I currently have a GX7 which I really like but the more I shoot the more I enjoy using flash. This leads me to lower and lower ISO, which at the moment im limited to 125. I would like to be able to shoot even lower, even if it means having multiple cameras/systems that each have specific uses. So my question is, which apsc or smaller sensor cameras currently in production (I would also include others like D7000, a77, 60D) offer the...

I finally made up my mind to get the EM1. I have both EM5 and GX7that I use regularly.  Should I keep the EM5 or GX7? I like both cameras and have no problem with the mannuals, operation and IQ.   I Like the EM1 because I have a couple of 3/4 lenses and also handling and responsivness.

I've just ordered a Panasonic GX7 and am looking at lenses, but will be building up slowly. Having invested in Canon EF lenses (which I want to hold onto), I don't have the dosh to go and splurge all at once - so I'm considering the Olympus non-stablised lenses because they seem less expensive. However, I read one review - which I now can't find - that suggested that in practice the GX7 stabilisation only provided one extra stop of assistance. Is that your experience? Should I be looking at...

I'm feeling like an idiot, but, after reading the manual for my Lumix GX7, I'm still having trouble with "defocusing the background" when I take a picture of a subject that is more than 6 feet away from me using an Oly 45mm f1.8 lens. When the subject is closer, the background blurs quite nicely, but then much of the foreground is also in focus. How can I isolate a subject for focus while the rest is defocused? I'm a new photographer, obviously. :/ My manual taught me about aperture, but it's...

Does anyone know if the GX7 uses the same remote release as the GH1? I have a Trigger Trap dongle for my GH1 and want to know whether it will work with a GX7 if I choose to upgrade.

I'm considering buying a 35mm equiv. fast prime for my m43 bodies. My plan is to shoot weddings with 35mm, 85mm and 150mm primes on three bodies - 2x GX7 and E-PL5. Most times I may be using only two bodies with 35 and 85mm. My current prime setup is 12mm f2, 25mm f1.4 and 45mm f1.8 (now is 42.5mm f1.2). I'm seeing three options: 1. m.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 - appears to be tremendously mediocre in terms of sharpness except in the absolute center 2. PL 15mm f1.7 - looks sharper, but I really would...

I just bought a GX7 and realized that with my poor vision, I can't see through the EVF--it's blurry, even with my glasses as my glasses are for distance. My reading glasses didn't help... Is their an accessory that could help with this? Thank you.
