  • Personally, I'm quite excited with Sigma 56mm coming to M mount even though I don't have a camera in this format. This is a fabulous lens and, finally, an awesome portrait prime for the M. This ...
  • I probably would but I don't have a 6. My backup is 7D.
  • I don't use a backup body for most shoots these days. Its just I like to have it in case anything happens to my main or in case I need to shoot a social event or decide to shoot some weddings next ...
  • For sure, there is a number of benefits here - better sensor than my current best one on 5DIII (so there will be somewhat of an improvement which is always exciting to get from new gear), I will ...
  • Again I'd like to thank everyone who responded! Your time and input are much appreciated. Yesterday someone suggested to me to sell both current bodies - 7D and 5DIII and just get the EOS R.  This ...
  • I appreciate all and every input on this. A quick note - I do not shoot video on Canon, so video side of things on RP is not a concern for me. I guess my main question is whether having both RP and ...
  • Created discussion thread EOS RP for around $1K - should I?
    Here is a bag of thoughts mixed with some GAS and restricted by tight budget. The situation is as follows. I'm a Canon shooter (hobby plus occasional paid gigs). I shoot mostly portraiture, ...
  • Great, thanks for the info. Yes, a manual will be fine with me. I'm a bit concerned to use the flash directly as I would hate to fry the camera - I don't know if the voltage would work. I wanted ...
  • Created question thread Canon to m43 speedlight adapter?
    So does this thing even exist? An adapter allowing to use Canon speedlight with my Panasonic GX85? Even if not directly on camera but the one with the cord? Tried to google it but nothing came up ...
  • Folks, thank you so much for all the responses and details. I just picked up a gently used copy of Panny 15mm 1.7. Will test tonight, hoping I will love it. Preliminary test shots I made were ...
  • Replied in DJI 15mm F1.7
    Thank you for the sample image. I'd say the distortion is not all that bad considering the angle and placement of the subject.
  • OK, here is another question about Panny/Oly 15/17mm option - how big is the distortion if I shoot people as subjects? I'm not talking about close-ups, but average environmental portrait (full ...
  • So I am talking to two sellers for Panny 15mm and Oly 17mm. What would be a reasonable price for a gently used lens (both)? The market for these is somewhat tiny, I can't figure out the average ...
  • Thank you so much, this is a lot of great info and links!!!
  • Good point. I was also somewhat worried about 40mm being too tight for indoor use. It is manageable for sure, but I suppose 30-35 would work better. I also read that the Panny 20mm has a slow ...
  • Thank you, this is helpful. I see a nice sale on Oly 17 at $350 right now. Panny 15 is $550, so there is quite a difference. Something to think about for sure...
  • Created discussion thread Indoor prime for GX85?
    I already have a 42.5 f1.7 panny prime for portraits and I love it.  Now I'm looking for a wider prime for "environmental" portraits and use indoor (24-40mm range). Not in a huge rush to buy but ...
  • Thanks for the links and advice everyone, I'll check these out. I am mostly interested in hands on advice with respect to features which are new to me (post focus, etc). I just want to get the most ...
  • Can someone direct me to a good online resource for the owner of Panasonic GX85? Maybe specific youtube or a good article with simple explanation of features and how to use them? Something that ...
