Best normal/wide lens for EM1: PL 15/1.7 or Oly 17/1.8 for street/event/low light (GX7 as 2nd body)?
By: greg57 (1 week ago)
Dear all, I know that there are bazillions PL 15/1.7 vs Oly 17/1.8 on the net, and I've probably read most of them. I already have the 20/1.7 (lovely field of view and optic performance, useless AF) and don't want to use a 25mm, which I find too narrow. It's really between the PL15/1.7 and the Oly 17/1.8 ;) I would love it if those of you who own an EM-1 and have tried both of these lenses could tell me how they compare in terms of Af speed, low light AF, light gathering, practicality and,...
Hi there! This is going to probably seem like a really silly question but... Why should I buy a Panasonic GH3? I'm an aspiring film student looking for my first camera and was originally looking at the GH3, until I found the gx7. It just seems better in just about every way even though it's primarily a photography camera... am I missing something here? I am aware the gx7 is primarily used for photography but it seems to be better with video as well, I love photography so the fact that it's...
Tried the Pany board but was advised to try here. Bought myself a GX7 to try the mirrorless route but I'm astounded (or wrong!) to find that Panasonic hasn't made an effective case for the camera. I thought this "Panasonic DMW-CGK22XEK" leather case was going to be a winner but it's awful! It simply doesn't fit the camera. It would probably fare better with a pancake lens (I have the 14-42mm kit lens) but even then, the eyepiece is still an issue. I already have a decent camera bag but I want...

In Olympus cameras, when you set to EVF only mode, the back LCD screen turns off. But when you press the image review button, the LCD turns back on and you can review them on the bigger screen. Is this possible on Panasonic cameras? I have the GX85 and owned a GX7 and GM5 in the past, but there doesn't seem to be a setting for this (and it's annoying as hell!!) Thanks in advance...
Bonjour, I did some work on a tripod recently and had set the timer to 2s. Then on a photo session at a show the camera was stuck on 2 seconds delay. I bypassed the problem by using my C3 preset but when I go to the shutter delay menu I do not see an Off option, only:2s,10s and 10s Thanks --Alain Antoine
I'm currently using Olympus E-M5 ii, mainly for street photography and casual family photos, coming from Panasonic GX7, I'm not satisfied with the AF performance of E-M5 ii, not because it focuses slowly (though slower than GX7), but the algorithm is different from GX7, that multi AF on E-M5 ii has much higher chance to focus on background, given the contrast of foreground is the same as background (I know it's CDAF), and low light AF is not up to GX7's level. Also, I'm used to GX7's range...
I know how to set up my em5ii to back button focus. But, as far as I can tell, you have to go back to the menu in order to revert of shutter press focus. It seems to me that you should be able to program the camera so that the 1/2 lever could have, say, shutter press focus on the 1 setting and back button focus on the 2 setting. Is that possible? If so, I haven't figured it out. My gx7 is very simple in this regard. Thanks in advance. Best, --alan brown
