Hello everyone, I have a Panasonic GX80 with a 25mm 1.4 lens. Whenever I take pictures where there are light bulbs or some other kind of light source in the shot, I get this sort of foggy effect in and around the light, I've attached a photo below showing an example. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm guessing maybe I need some kind of filter for lens. I tried using a lens hood to stop this but it didn't make a difference. I've never had this problem with other camera-lens combinations so...

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...

After a few failed snapshot using AF, I tried MF with pre-focus which worked quite well, however the 25mm f1.4 doesn't have a distance scale on it, so I have to pre-focus every time I switch back to MF. Since the rubber focus ring has groove on it, I could use a coloured pen to draw stuff in. Just want to make sure, that if I focus, say between 1-3meters at F4 with focus ring rotated to position X, next time with the same aperture, is it still position X for the ring and I can get it to focus...

I hate it's molassesness(sic). But looking around, I don't feel a 17mm is a sufficient differentiator to the 15mm. 15-vs-20, yeah, definitely a home for both. 15-vs-17, I'm struggling for justification. And at the same time as a prime-first user, there's too big of a gap between the 15 and the 25. So am I stuck with it as an inbetween to the 15mm and the 25mm?

Hi everybody! In a few days, a GX8 will be in my hands. :) I'll order a Panny 7-14, 12-35, 45-175 and...I want the best pancake or the smaller lens I could get for just a walking around or just for those moments I just want to bring the smaller photography kit I can. Let's say, just the camera and the smaller lens. I do want quality. I'm pretty image quality demanding. Ok ok...I know... photography techniques count...and counts a lot! Lets pretend I know those stuff. LOL I was considering the...

Hello. I'm pretty new to MFT cameras, but I did search the forums before posting this. I purchased a Panasonic GH4 and the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 a few weeks ago. For a few weeks this was my only lens while I played around with it and got used to the controls. I noticed that the lens made some noise, but I had no real reference point so I just assumed it was normal. I then acquired the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 and the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2....

I am wondering if there is any strong reason to keep the Pana / Leica Summilux 25 mm f/1.4 after purchasing the Voigtländer Nokton 25 mm f/0.95? So far I am very pleased with the Nokton's image quality and handling (manual focusing & aperture control was the main reason to get it). Of cause the Nokton is much larger and heavier, but the Summilux is also not really small. If I really need a compact kit, I have the Zuiko 17 mm f/1.8. So it seems the Summilux is redundant for me. Any thoughts?

I am about to come into some money that I want to invest in improving the quality of my images. My budget will be about $1000, and maybe $1200 maximum.  I'm not a pro, just an enthusiast that likes to take pictures. I currently have the following equipment: Panasonic G5 camera 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 standard zoom 45-175mm f/4-5.6 power zoom 100-300mm f/4-5.6 long tele zoom 25mm f/1.4 PanaLeica fast prime 45mm f/2.8 PanaLeica macro (which I also use for some portraits and as a short tele). I shoot...
