Hi All Short version: GX1 with MK320, Camera on P, flash on default TTL settings, image much darker than expected. Long version: I have a Lumix GX1 and the built in flash failed, instead of repairing the flash (Panasonic quote $207), I purchased the Neewer MK320 (I actually thought it was from Meike, but I have since discovered that there several flashes all called MK320, looks the same as the Meike, but can't figure out if it's really the same in another name or a cheap knockoff). I'm not a...

I am considering replacing my Lumix GX1 with the Pen F. I am interesting to know if the Pen F image stabilization is completely within camera, and not dependent on which lenses I use. I need to know if my old Lumix lenses, which have no IS, will work properly and have full function with the Pen F. Thanks much Michael

I posted this in the canon section but perhaps it would be cool to get the perspective of m4/3 users. Thinking of 2 options: 1) Upgrading my GX1 for a 5d Classic 2) Keeping the GX1 and buying a better lens. Thoughts?

Hi there Just bought myself a GX85 to upgrade my old GX1 as my Christmas present and I could not be happier for the upgrade. Much better sensor, a lot of 4K goodies to play with, 5 axis IBIS and a much better kit lens to play with while I am saving for the better lens Yesterday, I in mood to test both of IS to see how much tech improvement GX85 has over the 5 years. I was sooooo disappointed that despite the highly praised Dual IS that pana has in their newer system, my GX1 consistently...

Hi, I have a Panasonic GX1 with 14-42 mm F3.5 - 5.6 Lens. Thinking to update!  Is 12-60 Lens suitable for my GX1 model and how is the performance?

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.

Has anyone here had direct experience from GX1 to GX85 in terms of IQ ? Is there a real life, tangible, image quality difference in real world applications ? (Sure, on paper the GX85 looks better of course, but I am looking for a hands on perspective in terms of low light conditions and dynamic range for landscapes).

Purchased a second hand faulty G16 inc charger and battery for a very low price, opening it revealed a badly corroded main board, both sides which I removed and cleaned but to no avail. Any one know of a cheap source for replacement boards? Cant wait to get this camera going, externally it looks mint, really want to experience that very fast lens at the long and short ends. It will complement my G12 and GX1 quite nicely I think. The origional G series cameras are just so good especially the...

I have a G80/85, with the Panny 14-140 II, and a GX1 that usually has the Panny 12-32 or the Oly 9-18 attached. I'm wondering if the 12-60 would be too cumbersome or poorly balanced on the GX1... Any one tried that particular combo? Bryan Brooks

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,...
