Hen3ry's current gear

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 (Lumix DMC-G80)
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1.8
Just bought (March-April '17) to replace the G6. A significant upgrade in capability and IQ. The new shutter, superb EVF, Dual IS, weather proofing, tweaked sensor, and numerous new capabilities, plus the retention of Panasonic's excellent ergonomics and UI, all attracted me to make the big purchase. The downsides are the camera being black (I want a light colored camera, the G6 was white), and considerably heavier than the G6. In nearly two months of use, the camera has performed beautifully. I look forward to a long partnership with it.
A lovely camera which simply fell to hand the moment I picked it up in the store. Bought to be a back-up for my G6, then my main work camera, and to give me some IQ imrovement. It delivered; the only negative being the EVF, it really is too small. But apart from that, it has done everything I demanded of it. It is a favorite "walk around" camera with the 12-32 attached and the 45-175 in my pocket. But I can and do put on any other lens and go out confidently to do my pro work.
I love this tiny lens which has been returning top results for me for 4 years, particularly in portraiture and evening performances. In some situations, I've found it just a bit short, so I finally ('17) bought its big brother, the 75 to complement it.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 II Power OIS
New to me (May 17), bought use to overcome a problem with the limited length of the 45. Just done its first work with excellent results. I'm looking forward to more work with this lens.
A mainstay of my work for tourist providers for 4 or 5 years. A great little lens, very light and portable (important -- my work is on the road), but delivering excellent image quality. More choice in the UWA range now than when I bought, but why change? This is a quality lens that delivers and delivers.
Bought to replace the original 100-300 which I found to be optically very good, but focus was poor and frustrating. This II model delivers very good focusing, the same very good optical quality, and has weather proofing, always handy, and Dual IS too (although the original OIS is very good). A good upgrade.
Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm F2.8 ASPH Power OIS
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm F4.0-5.6 ASPH OIS
Great "walk around" lens, especially with the small GX7, although subject to shutter shock at some shutter speeds, demanding use of the electronic shutter. image quality produced is amazing for the price -- it is very, very close to the best oroduced bythe 12-35 which in anyone's estimation, ust be seen as a premium lens.
My "standard lens" for professional assignments. I wish it was available in silver, but it is black. :( Lovely lens, though, in early use; just what the doctor ordered. AFTER A YEAR OF USE I can say the early promise continues to be delivered daily. A lovely lens to work with, beautiful image quality, and now Dual IS too.
A new addition, bought used, to replace the Lumix 45-150 which performed well but I was never quite confident in. This is a super lens, great small telezoom but also great for macro with the Raynox 250 attached. A big advnatage is internal zooming which means the length of the lens does not change when it is zoomed.
