I have a Panasonic G7 and I'm looking for the cheapest wide angle lens (less than 14mm) that has auto-focus. I had looked at the Rokinon 12mm F2.0, but it doesn't have auto-focus.  I'm new to mirrorless cameras and a manual lens in my mind is a lens that can only be manually focused with the ring and not with the camera's auto-focus, if I am wrong please correct me. I bought the G7 with the 14-41mm kit lens and it isn't wide enough for my needs. I'm willing to buy a used lens. I am also...

I just got a lumix g3 with 2 lenses. 12-44 and 28-150mm(i think) would like maybe one that goes to 300mm aswell but not as expensive as a lumix one as I just spent all my money haha.  Anyone recommend a decent 3rd party lens? Total novice so up for any recommendatins that I should look into for shooting decent photos of things in the distance. from animals to football players.  Cheers

Hello everybody, I recently bought a Panasonic g6 with a Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. The problem is that I am not amazed by the sharpness of the kit lens and I am wondering how much sharper would be the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 lens? Thanks in advance

Okay I have been shooting with two Panasonic G7's for a few months now. I started this hobby with an entry level Nikon, though I loved it I found out I was shooting way more video, and in my research found that mirror-less camera's had what I was looking for. Without the cash upfront to get the GH4, I decided on a couple G7's which I really do like. I just can't decide what lenses to get next. They only thing I keep wishing I had was a wider lens, for a better wide angle shot, because I feel...

Hey folks.. Over the last little while I have been able to get a few lightning shots. What settings have worked on your cameras... My camera is the Panasonic G3. The lenses that I have tried/used for taking lightning photos have been: P14-42 P45-200 (manual 50mm f1.8) O25mm f1.8. There seems to be a lot of noise at 800 and over.. but am I just being fussy/picky after seeing some of the rather incredible shots taken online (I go GRRRR when I do see larger sensor cameras indicating ISO3200 or...

I have been thinking of buying the legendary Panasonic 14-45mm for years now. I actually ordered it (used, for $180) from Amazon a few days ago, but I had serious second thoughts and decided to cancel the order today. I already have the 14-42mm that came with my GH2. I know the image quality is not as good, but after re-visiting some old threads, it seems like it's close enough to not warrant the upgrade. I also gave up on the 12-32mm, since it apparently exhibits shutter shock at 32mm under...

Hi, I am totally new to photography so I hope you can help me on this. I want to get a Micro 3/4 camera but my budge is limited. I found a Olympus EP2 (without basic lens) and a Lumix 14-42 len set on Craigslist for $280. Do you think I should get the set? Should I just get the body and buy the len separately.  Thank you very much for all your help. I really appreciate it

I'm considering a new G5, but I'm confused about the Panasonic lenses. Price aside, is there any significant difference (IQ mainly) between the G VARIO 14-45mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. and the more expensive  G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S.Brian
