  • I came across this scam recently. What happens is that some unfortunate legitimate seller on the Amazon marketplace has his website hijacked by a scammer who tries to get prospective customers to ...
  • I sold my 3 year old E-M1 just before the announcement of the version2 and have already placed a pre-order for the new camera. Of course I will lose some money but that is inevitable when ...
  • Arthurus, Your desire for a camera ideally suited for purely manual operation sounds like a traditional rangefinder such as the Leica M series. They even make a monochrome only version. It is of ...
  • Novoflex still list these adapters on their website (Order code: LEMLEI) Make sure you specify which pair of frame lines you will need as  there are different adapters for different pairs - 50/75, ...
  • That would be disapointing considering that the GX80/85 is a recently released camera.
  • I think that it is clear that the Olympus and Panasonic dual IS systems are incompatible. This is a pity but I suppose inevitable as although Olympus and Panasonic agreed on the m43 specifications ...
  • Thanks Albert. I can look forward to even better IS when Panasonic update the firmware for the GX80 and the lenses. The greatest benefit will be with the 100-400.
  • Thanks for that information. I am currently using a GX80 and the IS effect with the 12-35 f2.8 and the 100-400 seem very good. The viewfinder shows that Dual IS is activated but I do not know if ...
  • Replied in G85/G80
    I think Panasonic are updating  a number of their lenses to work with Dual IS by a firmware update. Certainly my Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8 works well with Dual IS using the latest firmware and it is ...
  • I use my Olympus 14-150 II with both my Olympus Pen-F and my GX80 and have noticed no difference in speed or accuracy of focusing. IS seems to work equally well on both in normal use. I do not use ...
  • As you have a Panasonic camera body you are probably best sticking with a Panasonic lens as Panasonic offer dual IS with most of their lenses and this is of most value at longer FLs. If you did ...
  • I expect that the Olympus E-M1 Mk2 will be a considerable advance in fast accurate focus and will have excellent sensor based IS. As Panasonic and Olympus dual IS systems are incompatible the PL ...
  • I have been using the PL100-400 with the GX80 with good results. I was attracted by the dual IS and the new improved shutter. I also bought the GX80 with a good discount so if your budget is tight ...
  • Replied in Leica C
    I do not have a Leica C but I have its Panasonic clone the LF1 which I bought before the Leica version came out. It is a nice little camera within the limitations of a small sensor. The main ...
  • 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 ...
