Newbie question Looking to upgrade to a gx9 from a gx1. I have 2012 era G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 and G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm / F4.0-5.6. I am trying to understand whether dual i.s. will work for these lenses.  It seems like I read a few comments on the forum that they do not, however, by looking at the Panasonic website it appears that there are firmware updates for these lenses.   Should I upgrade my lenses along with my camera, or will they work for me?  I was considering the compact...

Hi,I was wondering if I could get some feedback about the following lenses.  The only thing they have in common is that they are all tele and internal zooms for MFT.  Given that they range in price, weight and size, I'm sure people are going to rank these lenses differently depending on what is important to them.My question is, which of these lenses would you prefer and under what conditions.  You may end up saying you would want one for value for money, one for compactness and one for being...

Hi, There are two lenses of Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm 2.8 and 35-100mm 2.8. My question is if the crop factor x2.0 applies to these lenses, to get an equivalent of full frame? Yesterday I had a bitter dispute with someone who says these lenses are "native" m43 format, so this rule doesn't apply. He also stated, that crop factor refers to full frame lens only when mounted on smaller sensors.  Until now, I was pretty sure it's a simple rule - crop factor applies to any lenses attached...

I'm a hobbyist and mostly use an OM-D E-M5 Mii with either an Oly 14-150mm f/4-5.6 lens or a Panasonic 12-60mm f/2.8-4 attached.  I also have a Panasonic G85, a great camera too. Most of my shooting is street photography. My question is, should I spend the $ on better glass - I would like more reach - or perhaps buy an OM-D E-M1 Mii body because of the faster focus and better performance.   My street photography often depends on capturing a fleeting moment (and often in less than optimum...

I recently grabbed myself an Panasonic Gx9 for a bargain on ebay without a lens and wanted to grab one of the cheap kit compact lenses to throw on to get me by until i'm able to afford one of the better lenses. (probably primes lens, one of 20/25mm & 42,5mm) For now I'm stuck between these compact lens 1) Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ (2014)2) Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS (2011)3)Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS (2013)4)Panasonic...

Hi there!I have a Lumix GX7 with the Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical G Series Lens and the Panasonic H-HS12035 LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm/F2.8 ASPH X Series Lens that I loved using, but I wanted to upgrade to a camera that could I could use to livestream with my audio interface set up that I have to record music. I primarily used the camera for family events, but will likely use it most of the time as livestream camera. I am tight on money, but I just want the best bang up for the buck, while...

Hello, I think there are model error's for some Panasonic Lens. For instance, i can read this on a post about version II lens : * LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm F2.8 II POWER O.I.S. (H-HSA35100)* LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm F4.0-5.6 II POWER O.I.S. (H-FSA45200)* LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm F4.0-5.6 II POWER O.I.S. (H-FSA100300) But the model isn't the same on lens pages : https://www.dpreview.com/products/panasonic/lenses/panasonic_35-100_2p8_ii...

Hi guys! I own a Olympus Pen-F since one year, and im quite enjoying it! For the moment I only use it with the Panasonic 12-32mm, since I wanted something compact and wide-angle for architecture / landscape. The issue is that for portraits or landscapes with people I dont usually manage to focus well on the person, and I do not realize until I see them with the PC, or somehow they do not reach the quality that I could expect of it... Its probably my fault, but I have read that the 12-32mm...
