Hello all. I have recently got this lens, and when focusing at a distance it’s pin sharp! head and shoulders above any lens I’ve used in that focal range. But I have noticed when focusing on subjects at the minimum focal range it’s just not that sharp (Worse than a Olympus 12-50 at 50mm and a Panasonic 14-140 at 60mm). I have tried it with a Panasonic GM1 and a Olympus EM5 and it happens with both cameras. I was wondering if other people have had this issue, is it just the nature of the lens...

Hello guys, I bought an orange GM1 with 12-32mm pancake for my wife, and she likes it a lot, actually, me, too. Recently I got Rokinon 12 mm and made my first ever Milky Way/night-stars still shots and time-lapse. The first ever and only time-lapse was so successful, that I want to experiment more and get a dedicated MFT body for this. Could you recommend any not-high-end body for the task? I am worried about built-in timer/intervalometer etc in the potential alternatives, like GF7 or so....

Hello! I'm looking to advance my photography skills by purchasing more advanced lenses to allow myself more variety in what I shoot. The problem is I'm having trouble deciding which direction to go. I want to buy lenses for a camera that I will use for a long time. I currently own two cameras: Canon Rebel XS (2010), and Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 (2014). I find the settings much easier to change on the Rebel XS, but I like the micro 4/3s camera because it's smaller. However, I feel like I chose...

Hi all, There is a nice feature on my GM1: when I switch to MF, a distance scale is displayed on screen. For example, it allows me to know if I'm at infinity (or closest distance) and stop turning the focus ring for nothing... With the EM1 I didn't find anything similar, is there a way to display a distance scale during MF? (or another way to know if I'm at one end of the focus range with focus-by-wire)

Hi. I bought a Canon G7X and I was disappointed to find that the camera had a tendency to backfocus when shooting at wide angle. Also, I found the G7X too big for my liking actually, because I also use micro 4/3 and the G7X was very close to the size of my GM1. At first, it was meant to replace my aging S100, but I sold it eventually. However, the G9X grabbed my attention, as it seems that the size is about on par with my S100 while offering a better IQ. However, I am quite scared to...

I have a GM1 and have a question. When using intelligent auto mode I can't put on or off the OIS. Is it always on  or does it not work in that mode? If so why? If I use IA+ I can put it on or off. Have searched for an answer but can't find any. Thankful for help!

Having trouble finding the answer, so will throw the question out to this forum: I currently have Fuji and M 4/3, and low ISO IQ and smooth tones are very important to me. I do have some issues with my GM1 (even using the mechanical shutter). If no ISO 100, I am thinking of either the GX85, or E-M10 (or the Fuji X10).  From what I know of the X-E1, the overall IQ is higher for stills, but of course, the video on the M 4/3 gear is much better....

I am having a problem with my video files coming from the Lumix GM1 and also the GH1 i owned before. I am recording with AVCHD 50i, but they are importing as 25p files into Premiere, also video properties show them as 25p. When imported into Premiere the image looks very aliased, also encoding the final video as 25p makes the movement much more jaggy than the original files. I never managed to overcome this problem. When watching my original MTS files, they look fine, but as soon as I import...

Hi! I'm very glad to join this wonderful site and forums. Would like to get your opinion on upgrade benefits. Hope it's the right forum section. I'm not a pro, more a newbie in photography. For about a year I've been using Panasonic GM1 with three lens: Pan 14-42mm, Oly 45mm 1.8 and Pan 100-300mm. Before GM1 were old compacts: Canon G9 with 1/1.7'' for important shots and pocket Sony with 1/2.3'' sensor for day-to-day shots. Use the GM1 for general/street ("report") photography. Prefer...

Hi, I just bought a Lumix GM1 couple weeks ago, and just got my first ND filter to it. I just played with it and noticed that my GM1 has a quite lot of noise when shutter speed is longer than 20s (ISO 200) and long shutter nr is off. Long shutter noise reduction definitely work removing these "faulty pixels", but I would like to use without it.Is this normal behavior of GM1 sensor or is my camera faulty? I took this picture with lens cap on, with 60s shutter,...
