I have a Panasonic G7 working as a travel photographer + videography but I also have started to do some real estate work. I have the 25mm f.17 which does the job and I have a Canon 50mm f 1.7, Canon 10-22mm f 3.5-4.5 and a Canon 100-400 lens. I don't know if I should go for the 12-35 Panasonic or Metabones ultra with a Sigma 18-35. I don't know if I should future proof and buy Canon glass or go Panasonic... Any ideas? Thanks

Hello all! I have a Panasonic GH4 and both 14mm and 42.5mm lenses. Though I do have some current issues with my gear.  #1. My GH4 does not have IBIS, and the stabilization on my 42.5 is completely unusable. #2. I have 2 primes. I do Youtube and I would love to have a zoom for Films/Vlogs #3. I had a Stroke in 2016 and I don't have much use of my left hand so it can be very tricky getting my GH4 on and off gear. So, Its Christmas and stuff are on sale! Both the G85 and 12-35mm are the same...

Hi , I have recently brought the version 2 12-35 2.8 to go with GH5 , have tested 2 copies & they have been optically inferior to my version 1 copy..though of course the stabilization is much improved , plus zooming without flicker too..There was mention of a update for the older lenses before GH5 release..& I am sure its a software not a hardware thing..but there nothing on the web now to indicate this will/can happen...So I'm stuck & dont want to buy or test in store many lenses until I...

Panasonic released a new version of the lens this year: http://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-camcorders/lumix-camera-lenses/H-HSA12035.html I am wondering how it differs from the old version (2012): http://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-camcorders/lumix-camera-lenses/H-HS12035.html It's a $300 price difference. My understanding is that it has a new version of Dual I.S. - 2.0 but is this something that can be upgraded with firmware? Is it worth it?

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...
