  • As far as I can remember this is a Panasonic camera behaviour. I only have some old Oly’s (newest being an E-P3) and they don’t have this behaviour. I cant say about the newest Panasonic but ...
  • Nor is it an isolated case. All cameras, new or used, seemed to have gone up in price over the last little while. Same with lenses (well, at least relatively modern used lenses).
  • Replied in Well ..
    Honestly speaking, that has never been a problem for me. Never even thought about it really.
  • All Leica lenses used on MFT or other Panasonic cameras (compacts) are designed and implemented by Panasonic with Leica oversight.
  • Others have already mentioned the GM5/GM1 so won't explain but they are the smallest available. Personally have the GM1 and love it :) Others have already mentioned the smallest M43 lenses so won't ...
  • Umm...looking at the camera/lens firmware page... av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/dsc/download/index.html Anyone know why the Panasonic Leica 15mm (H-X015) is not even listed? Has it ...
  • In general, I find to be, for all practical purposes, insignificantly differentiated. You may need to learn postprocessing better perhaps or the raw processor you are using may causes ...
  • The OP is specifically looking for a weather sealed lens.
  • Replied in Oh for sure!
    Well, the problem for me is the general concept of the Clearview or your version. Nothing wrong with them. They are perfectly suited for their intended use...I just know that I wouldn't ever use ...
  • Replied in I totally agree.
    Although this is an ancient thread, I would just like to add...for the longest time I didn't bring out my 45-200mm as I found the size cumbersome compared to my then GF1. And I generally leaned ...
  • and, although I haven't used it as much, do like my original DP1 as well. Such tiny powerhouses (with gigantic usage problems, lol). Oh, to be fair, the DP1 hasn't gotten much use as it's been a ...
  • Replied in Oh for sure!
    The GM5 is, on the most part, a more desirable camera. With that said, if I wanted to use larger lenses and or go to the trouble with using something similar to a Clearviewer, well...I'll just ...
  • Replied in unfortunately...
    the 45-175mm has been mostly forgotten because its sibling, the PZ 14-42mm had such a crummy reputation when they both came out with the equally bad rep GX1 all caused by shutter shock. Optically, ...
  • I think on the most part, you are absolutely correct and you would be hard-pressed to find any significant differences IQ-wise unless you do proper tests. And even then, there should be rather ...
  • Sorry, I'm not trying to make this personal. I'm talking numbers here or general attitude. And when it comes to age, as you age, your ability to adapt to new technology just plain declines. So ...
  • Sorry, nothing personal. I should have clarified by saying, (talking generalities) those seniors who find computers confusing, who have problems texting, tv remotes confusing, etc. etc. People ...
  • I realize you believe it's ridiculous but what are the reasons why your dad (not you) wants a new camera? If he simply wants a camera that takes better photos then simply upgrading his current ...
  • Replied in Agreed...
    Even though I mentioned my GM1 with various combos of lenses, on most occasions I would most likely pick the GM1 with one of 20mm, 15mm or 12-32mm.
  • Replied in GM1 + 3 lenses
    For me: GM1 PL 15MM, P 20MM, Oly 45mm Total: 605g or with zooms: GM1 12-32mm 45-175mm Total: 554g Note: I also have the P 14mm but I don't use it much. The p 35-100mm or O 40-150 or P 45-140 would ...
  • Replied in Samyang 12mm f2
    I wonder how it performs vs the well received Samyang 12mm f2. I should mention that the Samyang is also the same lens as the Rokinon 12mm f2, albeit the Rokinon seems to be more expensive for ...
