  • i have the G X 12-35 f/2.8 on my GX85 - It's an excellent lens but a little bit more reach would be brilliant. I will be getting the 12-60 for sure. i don't need 100mm. From my full frame days the ...
  • Replied in Ambassador
    Not tomntion failing to do any quantitative optical tests of the lens ... It's s meaningless review.
  • More than you know... There are several manual m4/3 primes in the range 10-12mm from the likes of Rokinon, Samyang and Voigtlander. The Voigtlander 10.5mm is probably the pick of the bunch. Add to ...
  • I'm using a GX85 and a 2010 iMac (OSX El Capitan) G7 CPU with an SSD. No software came with the GX85 and I didn't need it; OSX opens the images fine and I'm using either Aperture or Affinity Photo ...
  • Very nice - shows what a good videa can do that still photos can't. - and inspiring - we're off to Scotland on Sunday starting in Skye :))
  • Created discussion thread First day out with GX85...
    Well consider me stunned. A nice spring afternoon so we headed for the beach. Decided to shoot with the GX 12-35 in aperture priority, set to f/2.8 and let the camera figure out the rest. First ...

    James, I'll be doing some tests much sooner - the moon for a start and also the sun. I'll buy a full aperture metal-film glass filter as well for the latter.
  • Vlad that's a good example of focus stacking... Cheers.
  • Yes. There is significant difference - telescope optics are designed to be diffraction-limited - which these two are - but specifically for an object at infinity. With modern glasses and ED APO ...
  • Created user review thread A really great lens
    Stunningly sharp at f/2.8 to the corners, fast AF and low distortion. Glad to see Panasonic  pursue excellent image quality and aperture in preference to the zoom range.
  • I agree DFD is a really neat thing and can pull off a remarkable trick... But - for that shot I'd suggest it wasn't necessary - stopping the lens down a tad and a somewhat longer exposure would ...

  • Created discussion thread Telephoto lenses for m4/3 ?
    I'm looking for a lens around 450-550mm f/6 is ok, to fit my GX85, and it needs to be SHARP. So far the only other solution I've found appears to be the smaller ED APO refractor telescopes ...
