Hi, I've had a Pansonic G5 for a good while now, just with the kit lens and the cheap-ish Pansonic 25mm f/1.7. I've been getting really into photography, and I really think it's time for a body and lens upgrade (I've beaten the devil out of it). My budget is ~$2000, and I'm coming to the hard decision of sticking with Micro 4/3 or going for something like the Canon 6D with the 24-70 f/4.

Is there anyone who can give me some help with this problem please? The second three icons are the files in a folder titled RAWs, the third shot are the files converted and the last one shows the...
Which everyday lens would be best for my G5, Panasonic:- 14mm 2.5 or the 25mm 1.7? I want one for everyday, carry around, for street and scenery. Sharpness is most important. That's it really, appreciate your advice. ( My first post on the forum)
My Panasonic Lumix G5 s producing RAW2 files and when I try to open them using Photoshop CS3 I am being told they are not the right file and cannot be opened. Has anyone got any idea as to what is going wrong and how to fix it please. I sent a precious request but made a mess of it so am trying again. --RonB
So i'm looking at this lens on KEH and it states that it has a micro 4/3 mount and the format compatibility says 4/3. What dies this mean? Btw this is the name of the lens, Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 M.Zuiko L ED Autofocus lns for micro 4/3 system, and will this work fine on my Lumix DMC-G5?
