Hi,  Other than aperture, is there any difference between Leica glass and Lumix glass? I shoot only nature, people and story photography and I want the best possible glass for the Panasonic G9. If I buy the Lumix glass, I would most likely buy the 12-35 and 35-100, and if I buy Leica, I would buy the 50-200 and 12-60. Anything helps, Thanks.

I've been very torn between lenses for the past while. I switched back to Panasonic from my Sony a6300. On my Sony I would only use the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 with MC-11. This covered all my general stuff and everything was extremely sharp. I always wanted something more versatile, more reach, powerful, and also better at handling... so I got a Lumix G9. Doing that I've adapted my 18-35 using the Viltrox EF-M2 which on MFT makes it a 13-25mm f1.2. In theory this seems like heaven... but after using...

Hi there! I own the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 OIS (from 2012), which has a pretty annoying jitter, when shooting video. Even with a firmware update this could not be fixed. Does the new incarnation of that lens (from 2017) have the same problem? I am shooting with a GH4... Thanks so much!

Has this been done? Or are my search skills lackluster?  I currently own the 45-175 PZ, which I've really come to appreciate. I use it for landscapes quite a bit in that 75-100ish range. I'm pleased with the results, but I keep wondering....would the 35-100 2.8 be a (noticeably) better option in that range? as well as a nice compliment to my 12-35 f2.8.   Are there any comparisons out there of these two lenses, head to head in the 45-100 range, stopped down? Focusing only on their overlaps?...

I expect most of you probably fall into one of a few rough categories when it comes to photo backups while traveling (laptop, online backup, lots of memory cards), and I'm looking for input on a reasonable strategy given my particular needs, today's technologies and realities. I've used a simple strategy for many years and it has served me well (details below), but it is not perfect, it has significant limitations, and since I'm currently updating a lot of my gear, this seems like a good time...

I'm planning to pick up the Panasonic 35-100mm (H-HSA35100) F2.8 II zoom to fill the gap in my lens kit (for a GH5).  I know a lot of you have this lens (either the original or the Mark II, which I believe are dimensionally identical). According to the specs, the dimensions of this lens are (I think) 3.93" length x 2.65" diameter (oddly, on amazon, it lists the dimensions as 7.24" length x 4.5"....which seems crazy, maybe that's the dimensions of the box it comes in?). For those of you who...

I put my GH5 with a Panasonic Lumix 12-35 2.8 zoom on my new Zhiyun crane.  I carefully measured the weight of both and was delighted that they were within the gimbal's ability. I also have a 35-100 which is even (slightly) heavier. Heartbreak ensued when the zoom lens stuck out too far and balancing was impossible.  I used it and the result is ok... but I suspect would be better if property balanced and the motors wouldn't be overworked. Am I an idiot for trying?  Should I tape some washers...
