I have been using GR DIGITAL III for the past five years and recently I bought a used DMC-GX1 with a Panasonic 14-42mm PZ zoom lens as my first mirrorless camera. I also bought a Panasonic 20mm f1.7, which I like very much. But I’m not satisfied with the DMC-GX1 and especially I’m not satisfied with the image quality which the PZ lens produces (probably because I owned a GR DIGITAL III). In addition, I realized that I wanted an EVF. Now I’m considering of upgrading my camera and buying a body...

Hi everybody! First off, really appreciate these forums and the discussions that take place. I've learned a lot through searching through old posts/etc, and value the thoughtful input folks give on the variety of topics that exist - particularly as none of my closest friends really have photography as a hobby. That being said, I'm looking for a bit of advice - it seems like I'm on a never-ending quest to put together my ideal set of lenses for m4/3. I have a nice set of lenses to cover...
Can anyone help me with this? In have recently purchased the flash to go with my GX8. As it doesn't have and on-board flash I have also purchased a Hahnel remote/trigger. A couple of questions have arisen. Whether the flash is on or off the camera I cannot access the "firing mode" on the flash menu as it is greyed out. The manual indicates that I should be able to access it (I use Aperture Priority mode). I've changed the modes on the flash but it makes no difference. Should the...
I'm looking for a fast lens for my Olympus E-M10 Mk 1, and these Panasonic 20mms look perfect for me. I don't have a big budget, hence the lens options. I'm looking around at used lenses, and it looks like the mark 2 is about $50-$100 more than its predecessor. What advantages does it have, if any? Should I spend the extra cash? Also, these lenses will work fine on my Olympus camera, right? Thanks. :)

I've been reading a few threads asking similarly vague questions lately, and found some of the responses have been quite interesting, so I thought I'd air my query as well. Please skip if you've had enough of such drivel. :) I think my profile lists my current kit, but basically I moved from an E-410 + 14-42, 40-150 and 35 macro to an E-M5 +12-50 almost 3 years ago. Shortly after that, I picked up an E-PM2 with 14-42 and 40-150 kit for $299CDN, which was a no brainer, since I wanted the...
This is a question for all of you who have been to Afghanistan (tongue-in-cheek) or who have been to similar places where the weather is harsh and the shooting conditions may be less than ideal. What gear would you suggest I bring? You can see my gearlist; basically I have a D800 with the usual zooms, and a couple of Olympus bodies with the two PRO zooms plus some primes. I'll be shooting lots of landscapes, and also children (visiting orphanages) both in Kabul and in the provinces. I have a...

As per the title, I can't decide between the Panasonic 20mm F1.7, Panasoinc-Leica 25mm F1.4 or the Olympus 25mm F1.8. Between reading several comparisons, the main merits seem to be as follows: PL25 F1.4: 0.66EV Brighter than the others Cleanest and smoothest bokeh Lens Hood provided Oly25 F1.8: Fastest and most silent autofocus Sharper performance corner to corner at wider apertures Least chromatic aberrations P20 F1.7: Some also claim this to have better bokeh than the PL25 F1.4 but it...

I saw a mention on http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/latest/articles/57-differences-between-the-olympus-om-d-e-m5-mark-ii-and-the-om-d-e-m5-44571 that the Olympus E-M5mkII should be free of the high ISO banding issues with Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens, which plagued the original E-M5 among many other m43 bodies. Any E-M5mkII & Pana 20mm owners out there caring to verify this? Or have you run into other mentions of the same matter online? I'd like to get confirmation from another source before...

I'm considering upgrading from my Olympus PEN E-PL2 body; I only shoot JPEGs and, to this point at least, only use the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens. For me, would you recommend the Panasonic GX7 or the Olympus OM-D E-M10? I know there's been a lot of forum discussion already comparing the GX7 and E-M10 (including a new thread started in the past 24 hours), and from what I've read, the performance between these two is similar enough that it probably comes down to which camera's handling you...
