I'm looking for a small camera that I can fit in my jacket pocket, or a small bag. There doesn't seem to be any MFT on the market right now that are even close to the GM cameras. I think the GX850 is the smallest MFT available. Is the GM1 or GM5 still worth buying? Or should I go for something newer? If so, what? I looked at 1" cameras like the LX10/15 or the G7 X II, but not sure if they'll be able to provide me with the shallow depth of field that I like. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks

I'm looking to buy a camera that's small enough to fit in a jacket pocket or at least a small bag. I wanted the GM1 as that's extremely small and pocketable, and takes great photos, but it's been discontinued. The 2 cameras I've been researching are the Canon G7 X II and the Panasonic LX10/15. The main things for me are IQ, nice shallow DOF, and performs well in low light (bars, restaurants, night time street photography). Not too fussed about any video features. Can anybody help me choose...

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.

turning noise reduction off and noise filter to low helps, but it still seems much slower than my other cameras (Lumox GM1, GX3 etc.) . Camera is in program mode, which I cant figure out how to change. Any suggestions?
