I have still been looking at both Panasonic vs Olympus.  Took a look at latest blog Thom Hogan has online, and he came up with the same small body camera that I had already zeroed onto that he is thinking of keeping.  I dropped him a note what I was looking at and he warned me about the menu.  I went to a local camera store and took a look at the Olympus body and it was a perfect fit.  The salesman said that he had owned the camera but ended up selling it as the menu was just to hard to...

Just wondering if anyone has attempted using a legacy long zoom adapted to m4/3 for wildlife photography?  I am looking at getting a Panasonic 100-300mm for wildlife photography on my G5 and just thought, would it be wise to try to find an older 200-400mm manual lens and adapt it. Ultimate goal would be sharp, clear images at a low cost. suggestions welcome.

I've loved my G5 since I bought it 2.5 years ago. I've brought it all over the place and have consistently gotten great pics. All of a sudden, the other day, I went out to shoot some family portraits and it got SOO SLOOOOW. I didn't change any settings, batteries were fully charged, decent memory card etc. Nothing had changed except the speed of the camera. It refused to shoot in burst mode, the shutter was really slow, even in auto mode and processing between pictures took forever. I tried...

Having trouble with the multi function button bottom right on the back of the Lumix G5.  I set up the camera, take a couple of shots, walk a few steps and when I go to take another shot, my WB and ISO is changed likewise my Focusing setting. I suspect it is my right hand thumb that is causing the problem, short of cutting it off, what can I do to overcome this problem. Anyone any suggestions please?? --Ronb

I take time-lapse photos. I currently use a G5. In electronic shutter mode with the LCD display turned off I can get over 1,200 photos (RAW + JPG) on one battery charge. How many photos can I get with the GX7?

Hello, everyone, This is my first post, but I've been reading here for the last several months. On the recommendation of several forum threads here, I recently purchased a used Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5, and love it. I'm having trouble understanding its USB functionality, though, and am wondering whether anyone here can help. When I plug the USB cord into the G5 and then into a computer, a menu comes up allowing me to select a connection mode ("PC" or "PictBridge (PTP)" -- these can also be...

I just bought this tripod, with an extra geared column, for $200. I, basically, bought it on a whim to use for photographing architectural interiors. I am an architect and have just about finished renovating my kitchen and would like to photograph it, to the best of my abilities. I was watching a video on Creativelive (Mike Kelley) about photographing architectural interiors and he said you needed to have a tripod with a geared column. I quick look on Craigslist and here I am. I can't seem to...

Hi, I finally received (after 5 weeks +) a Meike speedlite. I wanted to get to know it before I leave for a longer vacation. However, I'm not sure whether I received a faulty unit. Upon turning it on it should display a value for ISO and a value for Aperture. It only shows aperture as 4.5, nothing for ISO. I have a Lumix G6 and  when I attach it to it, it shows nothing - no ISO, no aperture. So I tried it on the G5. With it, it only shows a value for aperture and the numbers change with the...

Just wondering if anyone who owns the GX8 and another Panasonic camera such as the GX7, G6, G5, GH3 etc, can tell me if the USB port is the same (or specifically, can you use the  same leads for transferring data into a PC) TIA Ga.
