Hi, I have a panasonic GF1 with the 20mm f1.7 and the 35-100 f2.8 lenses that I want to keep. I'm looking to upgrade the body to another MFT that will help me take better portrait shots (often low light/indoor). Any advice on a good option for a new body would be appreciated. Thanks

That's right, I'm still using a GF1. I bought it 2nd hand around a year ago as the cheapest way into ILCs, and have a had lots of fun learning with it. I know the answer to all 'should I upgrade from x camera to y camera' is always: 'are you  unhappy with x camera? If not, keep it til you're not happy'. I'd like to know if any newer offerings address my issues with the GF1 without removing what I like about it however. I am fine with the resolution, the burst rate, the AF speed, AF points,...

hi- First post here. I'm a visual artist getting ready to go on a wilderness residency on an ice field.  I will not have access to power - will be tent camping - for 5 days in temps ranging from -25 to -40. I shoot a GF1 and will bring a Canon powershot as a back-up camera. Am looking for advice on how many batteries to bring, how best to keep them warm and functioning and keeping cameras warm and functioning. I plan to bring insulated bags to store camera and batteries. It was suggested that...

Hello! I have a GF1 with no intention of buying a new body, and I'm using the 25mm summilux lens with it and love the utter crispness of the pictures you get with that. Now, for landscapes I have the 14-45mm panasonic lens, but I'm quite disappointed that it doesn't produce anywhere as crisp images. Perhaps that's inherent in zoom lenses with micro four thirds, I don't know. So, without buying a Canon lens adapter and spending more than the original camera cost, does anyone know which zoom...

I just upgraded my body from a GF1 to a GX85 and am looking into wide angle lenses for interior (mostly residential) architectural photography. Mostly natural light photography, for budget/time purposes and because the designers at my firm do a great job of designing to optimize natural light in lovely ways. I think I've narrowed down my choices to the following: Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4.0 (approx $800) Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO lens (approx $1200) Both seem like...

Hi I have a Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm pancake and the 45-200 tele. I've been very happy with the 20mm but since my kit is seven years old I'm wondering in what aspects I'll see the most improvement when moving to something rather new, like the a6000 + 50mm 1.8?  My biggest concern with the GF1/20mm is speed of autofocus in low light conditions. It sometimes takes up to a second. I also have a hard time getting good focus with the 45-200 when at 200 even in good light. Moving objects is a...

I plan, probably, to trade in my GX7 on a GX85, with a touch a GAS and for the improved IBIS as much as anything (I'm an oldster who needs whatever camera-holding help I can get in non-tripod situations). I know the GX85 does not ship with a battery charger; the Panasonic expectation, apparently, is that one would prefer charging the battery in camera, saving a bit of gear to carry around, and perhaps because it saves Panasonic an obvious cost for the charger, which had always been provided...

GF1 is a very old horse now, but I love it very much. I am wondering if the aperture ring of the relatively new 15mm f1.7 Leica could be used on it? Does someone have experience with this combo? Many thanks, Peter

Hello! I'm trying to connect my Panasonic Lumix GF1 to my MacBook Pro with the AV cable for Live View, for photography only, not video. I read on this website that this is perfectly possible and it should work fine by just pressing the trash button for 5 seconds or more and setting the camera to Manual Mode. I did exactly that and the lcd screen on the Lumix gives me a selection between PC or PTP. I chose either one, the lcd screen shows a lightning type of thing with the word "access", the...

It is a long time I am using the GF1. Now I have also the viewfinder and the Leica 15mm lens and really have that "old school" feeling over the controls of the camera. IQ is good but I would like something more, also the viewfinder can be better. So I am looking for a companion and by now I have to choose between the Pana GX7 and Fuji X100. As far as the GX7 I now I will go for sure but do not know if the viewfinder is as good as the X100. Moreover if I take the GX7 I dare that I will not use...
