I've had and used lots of panasonic lenses, but have no experience with the 12-35mm f2.8 lens. I've seen the MTF charts and ratings, but in my experience they really don't reflect my experience. I'd be using the lens almost entirely for people, so corner sharpness is not critical. But I also don't want a lens where only the dead center is sharp until you stop down. So here's the question: Can I use the 12-35 f2.8 at f2.8 and get salable results. I have the great original 14-45 for anything...
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...

Which is a better value? Sigma 18-35mm is $725 if used, and Metabones is $649 from what I see (Canon ef version). About $1400 vs $1000 for 12-35mm Panasonic. The lens will be used with my GH4. I know the Sigma has a better/larger focus ring, and somewhat better build quality, but is it worth the price difference? After borrowing my friends Sigma + Metabones (he has the Nikon version though), it is nice, but not sure if it's worth the extra cost. One advantage I see with the Sigma and...

Hello I'm new here and in need of some advice..I'm upgrading to my first interchangeable lens camera from the Panasonic LX7 (which is great). I've decided on the Panasonic GH3, but I need help with the lens selection.I film a lot of live concerts so most of my use is in low light (stage lights in a darker venue) and at close to medium range.The LX7 works perfect for me with low light performance and wide angle, i would like the equivalent performance in the GH3. I rarely use the zoom of the...

I love my current m4/3 equipment. I use an all-prime setup and for my current shooting needs I love it. I also have a few potential projects in the near future that are making me consider the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom. Primarily, I would love to hear field reports of how well the lens handles extremely dusty environments. I am planning on attending Burning Man in 2015 and everything I've heard about the environment is sand, dust, and heat. I'll likely be using my GH3 my main camera and...

I’m a current owner of the “Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8” and planning on getting the “Voigtlander f/0.95 17.5mm” both with 58mm attachments where you can screw in filters and other things (Not sure of the term). Currently I’m focusing my efforts on getting a fisheye lens to extend from my 58mm threaded lens. The reason I’m not going straight for the 7.5mm Samyang Fisheye is because I like to film in low light and f/3.5 isn’t quite suitable. In the long run I’m hoping to screw a fisheye attachment...

I understand both have their pros and cons depending on the situation and i have used both setups before when i was using a DSLR but i need to budget what i want to get first then subsequently the other. i currently have a 12-35mm F2.8 lens. As i do shoot indoors in not so fantastic lighting i have to use ISO6400 and above to try to freeze motion of children but the success rate is not high. So i need to choose between a Olympus FL600 flash, or a 25mm F1.4 lens. Which is more advisable to...
Sup fellas, I'm in the market for a macro lens so that I can take table top video reviews like this. That video was recorded with a omd + pana 12-35 f2.8 , which is the only lens I have now, but I find that it's a little awkward because of the minimal focal distance, so I'm looking for a proper macro lens. Concerns.. - That video was recorded at 12mm, which is doable, but I fine that the widest proper macro lens on the m43 is the olympus 35mm, which...is absent from shopatolympus.com? - Not...
