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 have decided to buy the GH5 and am now trying to figure out what lenses I want. I like to shot video and do sports/wildlife photography so at the moment I am thinking of the Panasonic 12-35mm and the Panasonic 100-400mm as a potential lineup. Another line up that has been growing on me is getting the Sigma 18-35mm with a metabones adaptor and then one of the canon/sigma telephoto lenses? In want to be able to film American football with the telephoto lens so any suggestions for good long...

Hey everyone, I'm currently on the brink of buying the G85, however i am not sure which of the 2 Kit Lenses i should be getting, since.... 1: Is the price difference between the two justified and does it reflect in usability and picture quality? 2: Is it better to get the cheaper Kit Lense and maybe ad a "cheaper" prime to the mix? 3: Should i completely go "F*** all the Kit Lenses" and just buy the 12-35 2.8, or the Olympus 12-40 2.8? Any input is appreciated ;-) --The meaning of life is...

Hi! Newbie here. Have not had a DSLR before. I am getting serious about making educational video for my students and general public. I set my talent in front of the whiteboard where I write. Right now I am shooting with Samsung Note 4 in 4K. I need 4K in order to crop in on something I write on the whiteboard and still get decent resolution. My studio room is 3x2.5m. I have 2 settings: most of the time 2m wide scene, sometimes 3m wide. The camera is tripod fixed at a distance from the scene...

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...

my question: is there a noticable difference in finished product ie.  prints 8'' x 12'' after using the prime as compared to same setting on the 12-35. Im considering the prime 25m f1.7 as an alternative if the results are significantly better. Subjects are portrait, street, scenery.

With all of the reviews and commentary on this camera the one issue I have seen no discussion about a comparison of the performance of the E-M1 Mark II using an image stabilized lens like the Olympus 12-100mm F-4 versus using the Panasonic 12-35 or 35-100 F2.8 lenses without the lens stabilization. In other words, how does the extra lens stabilization and slower glass stack up against the faster glass without the stabilization? With all of the comments about the high price of the camera, it...

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...
