  • Replied in Leica flash
    Are you sure about this? Some flashes are billed as being Panasonic/Olympus/Leica compatible and they do work with the Panasonic made Leicas. However the Leica M, T and I think  SL have a ...
  • A quick search on eBay reveals lots of non oem batteries available at a fraction of the price of official Leica products. I have no idea how good they are. My experience of other after market ...
  • I could not get the Nissin i40 to work as a master with my GX80. It works well mounted in the hot shoe in TTL and HSS. It will also work well as a slave.
  • I have found that the Olympus FL-LM3 flash which came with my Pen-F works well on the Panasonic GX80/85 both as a primary flash and as a wireless controller. It is a neat little flash that both ...
  • Camera DMC-GX80 Focal Length 28mm Aperture f/5 Exposure 1/60s ISO 800 Pen-F with 17mm f1.8 I really like my Olympus 17mm f1.8 which I have used with my OM-D E-M1 for some time but since acquiring a ...

  • Lightroom6 with the latest (6th July 2016) update handles the GX80 RAW files.
  • I have just come across this thread as My GX80 arrived a few days ago and I am trying to sort out its multifarious capabilities. I was disappointed to find that the built in flash does not do ...
  • Replied in 262 vs 240
    It depends on your needs. If you intend to use lenses wider than 28mm or longer than 135mm Liveview and EVF are very useful, also macro photography is much easier (essential with the new 90mm ...
  • Yes I change lenses quite frequently. I was quite used to cleaning the sensors of my DSLRs but so far I have found it unnecessary with my previous OM-D EM5 or my current EM1 and Pen-F.
  • My experience of m43 cameras is limited to Olympus but over the past 3 or 4 years I have never needed to clean the sensor. The built in sensor cleaning mechanism is amazingly effective.
  • I have this lens. When I used it with my m9 I was not too impressed by its sharpness. Once I switched to the M240 it became much sharper when focused using the EVF with magnification. 135 mm is ...
  • I think you are forgetting Leica M and SL series.
  • A solution to Option 3 might be this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kipon-Leica-Visoflex-M-mount-Lens-to-Micro-4-3-mount-M43-Adapter-E-P3-PL3-G3-GF3-/221998227282?
  • The v4 firmware for the E-M1 was released in November 2015. It was a much better update than most firmware releases. Perhaps it was designed to keep us all happy till September. Having just ...
  • I am in the same dilemma. Ihave the 40-150 f2.8 as well as the 75-300. I am intending to get the new 300 Pro and seriously considering selling the 40-150 as although it is a terrific lens I do not ...
  • I use the Olympus FL300R. It is quite small. It tilts but does not swivel. I also use a Nissin i40 which is a bit bigger but much more powerful and both tilts and swivels. It come in various ...
  • Thanks. I was thinking of the rear TCs which do lose  exposure. The front TC would seem a better bet provided it is optically good enough to get a sharp image.
  • I doubt if it would be worth using a TC on the 75-300mm lens as at 300mm it is only f6.7 and you would loose a stop or two of exposure when using a TC. At present the Pro 40-150 with TC gives ...
