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,...

I've been shooting Micro Four thirds for 5 years.  2 Years on a Panasonic GX1, then I switched to a OMD EM5 Mark 1.  All this time I was only shooting photos, and now I'm starting to shoot about 50% Photos 50% videos, so I'm looking for a camera that meets my needs. What I love about M43: Lens size and selection, ibis , portability What I hate about M43: Low light performance What I'm considering: OMD EM1 Mk , GH5, a6500 , a7Rii (or holding out for the next A7 camera).  I've tested all of...

I have been using GR DIGITAL III for the past five years and recently I bought a used DMC-GX1 with a Panasonic 14-42mm PZ zoom lens as my first mirrorless camera. I also bought a Panasonic 20mm f1.7, which I like very much. But I’m not satisfied with the DMC-GX1 and especially I’m not satisfied with the image quality which the PZ lens produces (probably because I owned a GR DIGITAL III). In addition, I realized that I wanted an EVF. Now I’m considering of upgrading my camera and buying a body...

A friend has some old Ai and Ai-S nikkor lenses and wants to use them with his panasonic GX1 (m4/3). I offered to help him order an adapter for the job, but after reading lots I still feel a bit unclear (I'm not very knowledgeable on the topic of cameras). Did I get it right that since these particular lenses have their own aperture rings, and we don't care for any automations, any simple 20€ adapter (with no aperture ring of its own) will do? Does it mean that if I buy an adapter sold as...

Finally got around to using my Panasonic GX1 to take videos. None of the existing software on my PC would see the video files on the camera, so I installed the software PHOTOfunStudio 7.0 HD edition that came with this camera. Upon install I was surprised to learn it's usable only for a 30 day evaluation. I would like to know what PC software others are using to download and process their Lumix type video files. Thanks in advance, -jeff

I love to take photos at night and I am considering upgrading my equipment to hopefully get better results. I am currently using a Panasonic GX1 with a Panasonic 15mm f1.7 lens. I'm considering an upgrade to a Fujifilm X-T10 with a 16mm f1.4 lens.  Do you think I will see an appreciable increase in low light results with this upgrade or should I be thinking of something else?  While a full frame DSLR would be nice it is unlikely I will be able to afford one in the near future. The camera and...
