I am moving up from extended use of the tz range of cameras and want to learn more about photography.  I have see a gx7 with 14 42 for £250 and also a omd em5 with 12 50, 40 150, and 45mm for £450. Does anyone have any opinions on these two camera that would help me with regards to ease of use and suitability.  Thanks

I just got a new GX85 and it's very nice except for the small, hard, shallow eyecup. I've searched online and find nothing in the way of a replacement or add-on or upgrade.  Does anyone know of one, its number and where it is found? I know that there's a DMW-EC3 for the GX8, and a DMW-EC1 for the GX7.  Would either of these fit if there's no dedicated model for the GX85? Thanks for any leads.

Hi, I saw many questions and discussions about the olympus flashes on Panasonic body, but yet none seem to correspond to my problem.... I have the Olympus Fl50-R and I used to mount it on my loyal Lumix GX7 Looks wrong but for using it years before it's compatible  I used it like a year ago and then started to experiment some fast primes so I kept the flash away for a time. But one day I ordered new batteries for it (Eneloop ones) triggered the flash unmounted, seemed to work fine, reload...

So even though my GX7 is fairly low mileage, it's also missing a lot of features i would love to use. I knew this going in of course but i just wanted something decent as an entry body. Still, im looking forward to my eventual upgrade and am debating a few bodies. The GX8 has been on my radar for a while as it's, spiritually, very similar to a GX7 but with new tech goodies. But now the EM1.2 is here and the Mark 1 is much cheaper and it has quite a good feature set. So as it stands, the EM1...

Hello Everyone! So... after the Christmas chaos has settled down and prices are starting to be sensible again, I'm back to what went through my mind nearer October. Which is: compared to cameras that are not as ancient, my Olympus E-520 is deffinitely more limited in capabilities. I've liked about it: IBISThe ruggedness - dropped, used in the rain and the desert, other than the flash it all works or can be made to work.The kit lenses. (Not bright, much plastic but gotten good images out of...

Honest question. Im finding very uncomfortable to shoot the LX100 like any other camera. When trying to keep my left hand at the lens barrel my left hand meet my right hand. That didnt happen even with my X30, a small camera just like the LX100...(my gx7 is a much better camera ergonomics wise) Anyone here who is shooting with the EVF has any tip?

I don't have a photo to offer bc it's basically a behavioral thing, and i don't know if it's just a GX7 or all Panasonic or even all ML. So here's what i notice. When i shoot in A mode, with exposure preview set to ON or OFF, the LCD/EVF will change their gain (brightness of the image i see) even after AF is locked, even though exposure settings are also locked in with AF. Ok no biggie, at least i know the exposure of the shot will be what saw upon focusing. Problem is, when focusing while...

Greetings, I'm sure this is entirely user error but I'm having trouble setting the direction/orientation in panorama mode on my GX85. I remember being able to do it quite easily on my GX7 even after going into shooting mode. The manual say the camera will ask you for the orietation right after turning the dial and before the shooting mode, but in my case it doesn't, it just shows the default left-right movement animation and as far as I've tried no button or dial seems to change it, after a...

Hi, I own a Panasonic GX7, a Panasonic 14-140 f3.5-5.6 and a Panasonic 20 mm f1.7. This May I will be backpacking through India. The plan is to hike for approx 12 days through the Himalaya's, carrying our own shelter (tent, sleeping bag) clothes, and food supply. Basically, my 65 liter backpack will be filled with first needs. I like to carry my camera with me, including battery and charger. I could leave the 20mm at home. I doubt whether it is smart to put it in the backpack. I will be handy...

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...
