I’m planning to upgrade my Olympus E5 mark II to Olympus M1 mark II or Panasonic Lumix G9. And second my Panasonic Lumix GX7 to the Lumix GX8 or the latest GX9. Lenses I have: Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100 pro, Olympus M.Zuiko 60 macro, Lumix G 20, Lumix G 7-14 and Leica DG 100-400. Should I stay in Olympus or change all to Panasonics? Which one would you choose G9 or M1-MII?And is that GX9 a better choice than a GX8? I’ve tried to read everything possible on behalf and against. In the end, maybe...

I cannot use my flash and with the help of this forum I found out that flash cannot be used with the electronic shutter enabled. there are two settings - anti shock and silent. I have turned anti shock to OFF but the silent (heart) setting is greyed out. How can I turn the electronic shutter off please? Thank you --Ken
hey everyone, having a think about the G9, I'm ready to upgrade my gear and have a soft spot for m43 (my father has a oly e5, brother e3 and em1 mkll) anyway, has anyone had a chance to use this camera for long exposures (5 - 20mins)? and does the image "build" on the screen as the exposure is being made? also has anyone been able to compare its long exposure performance to the em1 mkll (I'm interested in both cameras)? I'm also interested to see if the G9 has the same features as the em1 mk2...
Up front I want to say that the aperture blades are not sticking and exposure metering is normal. When exposure is set to min aperture the DoF preview button works normally. The iris is snappy and responsive and displays none of the behaviour cited by many here when they describe the 'stuck aperture' fault. However, since I've started shooting video with this lens on the E-M1II I've noticed that even with the lens set wide open, eg f/2.8 at 12mm, I hear the Aperture mechanism makes 'ticking'...
I've had the subject lens about 7 years. It recently began to go very dark when in use. You can still see through it, but the entire FOV is quite dark and the light meter reads 7-8 stops too low. Tried it on 2 different E-5 cameras where other lenses work fine. Sometimes the lens will function properly for a while, then goes dark. Planning to send it to Olympus for evaluation, just curious if anyone else has seen this problem. It has been used a lot for professional photography, mostly...
Hello, hoping you can help me settle on a camera. I am looking to get into the mirrorless camera market and have settled on Olympus due to the lens ecosystem at an affordable price. I travel quite often and enjoy both photographing my trips as well as recording video (for short travel videos). Since I often hike in remote areas, its enjoyable to get some astro shot as well such as the milky wy. In the past, I have used a GoPro and Canon SL1. My goal with the Olympus is to merge the two into a...
