  • I love my GM5, and would love to see Pan keep the line going or Oly make something about the same size.  I got into m43 to have a small take with me camera that still took good pictures and a year ...
  • Problem is it's hard to evaluated if you should be happy with the results of the camera if you post a jpeg that you did a bunch of PP work on.  Example, the picture above, the highlights on the ...
  • Not sure if all the M43 camera's have focus peaking, but I find it very easy to use when I MF a lens.  I thought using MF on m43 was going to be a lot harder coming from a DSLR system, was ...
  • Replied in GM5
    GM5 The 12-32 zoom that comes with it is very small and a good little lens match for the size of the camera. The oly 25 is a great prime in your range, it's not that big, but not a pancake. Short ...
  • Replied in silly
    I don't get the whole I have to prove my m43 gear. Both FF DSLR's and m43 have strengths and weaknesses, none of them are a perfect system. Just enjoy the system you have that is a good match for ...
  • There were a few who have posted having or handling more then one GM1 and having issues with the wheel on one of the cameras, but not the other.  I think that is what has added mixed reports on ...
  • Sorry, that was a response, or adding to LMNCT's post about both OIS & IBIS, was just adding that for the OP I did not think that both OIS & IBIS would work since he has an Oly body and Pan lens.
  • The 100-400 works with both IS on the gx85, but don't think it will work on the Oly body.
  • Replied in F6.7 is slow
    not sure if you ment the oly 75-300, it is 6.7 vs the Pan 100-300 at f5.6  If you were talking about the oly 70-300, it is a 4/3 lens, not m43.  I think it will focus very slow other then on only ...
  • Given the other cameras systems you have, and you are getting this mainly because you want something "ultra light weight", I would pick one of the smaller Pan or Oly camera body. Your looking at ...
  • I really like the Pan 15 on my GM5, it is often on the camera.  I would get the Oly 25 over the Pan 25.  I had both and like the Oly better.  The pan is a little large for what it is.  I don't ...
  • I have the Franiec grip on my GM5.  I did not find that it added any real bulk to the body and really gives the camera something to hold on to a little better.  I don't care for the Pan add on ...
  • Replied in nice bag
    I always like the build quality and layout of the tenba bags but the smaller ones (size I would want) always look to purse like.  I have to say, the finish on this one is very nice.  I would have ...
  • PL15, it's a great lens.  I use it for video on my GM5, but I don't get IS on that body.  It would be a great match up with the GX85
  • It is completely obvious that you are without a doubt 100% correct ! Happy to see you know what lens you are going to buy, please post photos  when you get your copy.
  • Replied in My summary
    this is a reoccurring theme with the OP regarding the two lenses.
  • big difference between 15 and 20.  I have the 15 and it is a great lens, one of my favorites.  But both will give different looks, the 15 has shallow DOF (just enough for some back ground ...
  • A few extra batteries seems to solve the problem for me.  You can get an after market charger that is better then the original, so I wouldn't have an issue using one if I needed it/
  • I tend to not use extra gear when I bring it, but have had a few times where I wished I had an extra lens, it's a trade off. So did you use all the gear you took with your, or do you now know what ...
  • Replied in I don't think so
    I spent may years with Nikon SLR and then DSLR cameras, now about a year ago I added m43 camera to my tool kit.  Picked it up as a small travel body, but find I use it far more then just for that. ...
