So some quick info, im in my 3rd (and final) life in MFT, owned a GX7 and GX8 in the past. Coming back this tme i got another GX7 as i knew i would like it and prices are super low now. As of now i have several lenses with adapters and the Sigma 60mmDN. I love the combo and have many great shots so far from it but have been looking at upgrading my body. I originally wanted the GX85 for the advancements in IBIS, DFD, 4k, ect, but then i saw how close the EM10-II price was and figured it was a...

Love my GX7 and my new GX8, but one thing drives me insane: as far as I can determine, the only way to change the setup of the "C" positions on the mode dial is, 1. Set mode dial on a non-C position. 2. Input desired custom settings. 3. Menu> Cust Set Memory, select C position (C1, C2, C3), select [Yes]. 4. Back to original dial mode and *reset everything* back to where it was for your normal shooting. So already we have an extra step. And it gets worse: every time I want to make a permanent...

Aloha, Just bought a GX8 (moving "up"? from GX7). I'm encountering something I didn't see with the GX7: numerous menu items grayed out. The camera is set to JPEG, video AVCHD 60p, burst mode M.  Shake reduction on, Photo priority (for video/photo mode when used).  Focus priority for AF.  Single AF.  Multi-metering. The following are grayed out: Quick AF, Eye Sensor AF, Diffraction compensation, Luminance Level, Silent operation, Motion picture exposure mode, Handheld Night Shot, iHDR,...

I am interested in the Olympus E-P5, the Panasonic GX7, and the Panasonic GX85. Any opinions or recommendations would be appreciated.

The G85 / GX85 have 16MP Panasonic sensors and the maximum long exposure in bulb mode is limited to 2 minutes. This is similar to the GX7. Also, the E-M1 had a 16MP Panasonic sensor. As far as I know, the old Panasonic 16MP sensor has a problem with high noise during long exposures, so that if you didn't use long exposure noise reduction (dark frame subtraction), the results are really bad. I believe the E-M1 suffered from this (e.g. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56849057). The E-M5 II...

Hey all, I just bought a Panasonic 42.5mm f/1.7 lens to go with my GX7 camera, and when I started to try it out, I was surprised to hear a very quiet, steady "whirring" sound to go along with some intermittent beeps. The only other lens I've used on my camera for the past year and a half is the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, and I've never noticed any such noise with that lens. I put the 20mm back on to double-check, and sure enough, still no noise from that one. I Googled around a bit and learned...

I am going more towards video shooting these days, with short clips composed of a few dozen scenes, mostly concerts, travel and family events. Feel limited ny my GX7 due to lack of video stabilization an missing mic input. Not sure I would really make use of many of the flagship camera's additional capabilities over the G85 though so interested in your advice.  My thinking is that I would invest the saved money rather into glass, such as the coming PL 12-60/2.8-4 with additional IS.  From a...

Hi, Have recently got a Panasonic GX7 and initially was not happy with photos coming out too dark for my liking even when exposure dial said it was at 0. I am working round this by taking a photo, and then checking its exposure and then taking another one if needed. I don't need any help with this as I posted a question on this and had some advice and was told is how Panasonic like to process images. So am on with this, however... MY CURRENT QUESTION I have recently got a lens adaptor and...

I got my hand on a like new GX80 to replace my GX7 (thought it was a good opportunity for the price) and while I really like some aspects of the new camera, I'm having issues with the jpegs coming from the camera. That's a problem as for my take anywhere camera, I often shoot jpeg. The GX7 never had this kind of problem. I'm talking about a weird posterization in darker areas of the image.  All in-camera enhancements are turned off... Here, for the purpose, I applied some shadow/highlight in...

Hi, I have just upgraded from a Nikon D3200 to the Panasonic GX7 with 14-42mm lens. I m new to this camera and only had it a few days but I have been taking a few photos with it using 'A' and 'S' modes in jpg and Auto and Manual ISO and found that all my photos are coming out a bit dark and underexposed. I have tested this by taking the same photo with my Nikon D3200 in the same setting and similar focal length shots and they are fine and a lot brighter. Am I missing some setting?  Should it...
