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...
I just got a used H-HS12035 off eBay (link). I noticed dust/debris in the lens (see photo below). Is this a big deal? The lens was represented as an H-HSA12035 in the auction, so I could return it and try again if recommended. Looking through completed auctions, I am inferring that lenses with less use may be available at similar or lower prices. While there's some junk on the outer glass, I think I could wipe it off. I'm not wiping it, though, until I am certain on whether I should return it.
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
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...
