Both Panasonic and Olympus have released a lot of lenses lately, and they have been filling in the high-end range that was still missing from their respective line-ups. While I do understand that this needed to be addressed, I feel that the original premise of m4/3 has been somewhat neglected in recent years: we grow bigger (literally), not smaller. Although I recognize that there are some exceptions to this rule (if you look hard), like the release of the very small and light Olympus 30mm...
How fast is the readout speed of the 20MP sensor of the Pen-F? I wan't to try to estimate how severe the rolling shutter effect of the Pen-F is. If you use the electronic shutter the data of a single image takes some time to been read. Faster readout means lower rolling shutter. The OMD EM5 II has a readout speed of 1/20s. The Panasonic GM1 has a readout speed of 1/25s. The OMD EM1 II is said to be twice as fast as the Pen-F. But how fast is this?
My first camera is a Olympus Pen E-P5 with Samyang 7.5, Panasonic 20/1.7, Oly 45/1.8 and Oly 12-40/2.8. I like that kit and use it for travelling and many occasions, when I have enough time for taking photos. But sometimes, for example when I am on a weekend trip with friends, I noticed I often leave the camera at home because it is too heavy and too big to take with me. But sometimes it ist just not enough having my iPhone with me. So, in short, I am looking for a second body to have with me...
I'm tempted by adding one of those nice little camera to my set. The LX100 is my go to camera, but sometimes I would like a pocket camera only with a fast prime (like the wonderful Panny 20mm f/1.7 or the Oly 45mm f/1.8) First, the GM5 seemed the choice, because it has a VF and a command dial, but the thing that puts me off in no built-in flash (I always pest when I need the flash for the LX100). And the tiny viewfinder seems not very usable according to some reviews. So I wonder about the...
I have two Oly Micro Four Thirds lens' from a failed EPL-5 body. (ED 40-150, F4.0-5.6R and ED 14-42 F3.5-5.6 IIR). If I use these with a Panasonic GM5 or GX1, what is the real degree of interchangability? Are the Panasonic camera functions fully operable with OLY lenses? Do the OLY lens' lose any functionality with the Panasonic body? My understanding is that all these units are proper Micro Four Thirds.

I've read several posters disappointed the GM series is now, it seems, discontinued. I've had the GM 1 for around four years now, a great little camera that slips into a jacket pocket; the 12-32 lens not only tiny but good. However, my GM1 has now expired. It's been declining over the last three years since spending the three wettest months I can remember in long grass at the end of our country lane. Not only 3 months in long grass, looks to have been biffed by a passing vehicle. Looking for...
