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...

I bought a GF1 several years ago and never really used it. Today I got it out with the intention of selling it along with the 2 lens on ebay. But was in for a big surprise when I found out the current value. What happened to the value? Is the technology just too old?  Are the newer versions just that much better?  If so please explain to this digital neophyte.

Hi - I've done Google searches and searched this thread and can't find anything on this. I have a Lumix DMC-GF1 camera and use the Lee Seven 5 filters. I have a Lee Pro Glass .6ND, Lee .9ND, and Lee .6ND graduated. Whenever I use these filters I can hardly make out where the line of the filter is versus the actual image. I had a semi-pro photographer buddy look at it and said you should definitely be able to tell where the filter is a lot clearer than we can. We used both the EVF and the back...

I'm considering a used GF1 with a 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Sometimes I need to take photos of insects and plant parts for identification, at ranges from 1-5 cm. Would the 14-45mm lens work for this, or would I need to get a different lens?  Currently I use a Canon Powershot A630 for this, which has excellent close focus, but it's on its last legs.  Thank you!!
