    Which Camera Took Which Picture?

    Well I found that video pretty reasonable, is there some hooha somewhere about it?

    Buying GH2 as second body in 2019

    Absolutely! Especially in the early days Panasonic pushed the boat out for certain models/lenses, and the oversized sensor was genius.

    Showcase Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7 DG Summilux

    Now that's a lathe! It reminds me of the spinning factory I worked at : 4-metre diameter dishes, spinning with massive blowtorches and rollers on'em. (Before photography was even invented, that's my excuse)

    Showcase Panasonic Leica DG 200mm f/2.8

    I have to say the quality of photos in this thread is excellent, makes the 200mm lens look great.

    Telephoto Zoom comparison

    Are you deliberately trying to sabotage this comparison? : post D, then M2 with one space line between them, in the same post, obviously.

    Telephoto Zoom comparison

    Number1 is slightly better, even though it has slightly less reach.

    Buying GH2 as second body in 2019

    So many opportunities to buy a GH2 cheap over the years, but to me it has colour problems, especially skin tones. I own a GH3 which is pretty good and was cheap.

    Legacy lenses with PEN cameras

    Shootout Pen-F vs Sony A7RII - A Week in Cuba With Both

    I like Panasonic's touch-screen refocus (even in old models like the G3) better than the shutterbutton, does Sony/Olympus do that now?

    Legacy lenses with PEN cameras

    You need an Olympus or Panasonic or Third-party adapter with the electrical contacts. Autofocus works pretty well, depending mostly on which lens is used, rather than what most forum folk say i.e. which body is used. A great cheap way to use the newer sensors with the excellent older lenses.

    Fuji X-A3 + 27/2.8 vs E-P5 + 20/1.7

    Canon M50 in 1950's "kitchenalia cream" with their 22mm would be a good deal, wish it was cheaper.

    Fuji X-A3 + 27/2.8 vs E-P5 + 20/1.7

    e-pL7 .. 8 ... 9 has a nicely hinged screen and is smaller than the e-P5, has good stabilisation but although I love my Panasonic 20mm : for indoor quick focus the PL 15mm would be my choice, however I also own that so I'm biased. (It isn't a pancake but it is small)

    Fuji X-A3 + 27/2.8 vs E-P5 + 20/1.7

    Are you using the LCD screen or a viewfinder? (I don't like F2.8 for dim indoors, whatever the system)

    Hey Sharp! : while you are designing your 34megapickles camera can I put in a vote for tilting EVF? Thx.

    Which lens? Total beginner here.

    Spend forty quid on a bog-standard short kit zoom from any m4/3rds maufacturer. You bought a high-end hybrid-video-stills camera with no lens at all?

    I prove the DJI 15mm f/1.7 lens and the Leica 15mm f/1.7 are the same!

    A search brought up a little model of a sword and a leg for an Ikea table. Not a great result :(

    Sell Panaleica 15 f/1.7 to buy Sigma 16 f/1.4?

    The PL 15mm is one of the lenses that I carry around (on a camera, naturally) in my jacket pocket every day. If I was taking photos which required a bigger lens at 15mm (can't think of any uses right now) I'd think about replacing it ... but no. It isn't a pancake but was obviously designed to...

    Can someone compare the Olympus & Panasonic JPEG engines

    Out of the box all my old Olympus cameras give nicer jpeg skin tones and blue skies than all my old Panasonic cameras. That may seem a big statement but it's true, and out-of-the-box jpegs are important to the general market and non-post-processors. I only own one Fuji, the old X-E1, and it...

    Since Siri, Amazon echo, Cortana (and all the rest) came into existence [devices explicitly designed to respond to voices] many devices are sending parts of what they hear back to the office [because that is the only way they can work] ... not exactly to "big brother", just to a few "dodgy...

    What m43 Really Needs

    I like your list, welcome to the forum. I've bolded the bits which I particularly agree with ; I'd like Olympus to keep on whacking us with the retro stick ; E-P1 2 3 5 Pen-F and re-introduce that optional front grip deal, was it e-pL5?

    C&C Disappointed - Help Needed...

    (Well I think it's a decent holiday snap and captures the awfulness of British weather) Light is terrible, camera focused on the dog, you set the ISO. Apart from those things the photo is fine. Improvements easily made in my opinion ; Well, you can't do anything about the light on the day...

    Is My Reasoning To Invest in The Olympus 17mm f1.8 Sound? (Insight into Prime Lens Strategy).

    Sure. For many people 17mm is a brilliant focal length, however you cannot use the term "invest" here! :D

    GAS hitted me! (Pen f involved)

    spDavies' half-humorous post had me nodding. I wish the Pen-F had come out with the front knob more functional and the EVF tilting, if fact I would own one now if they had made that camera. *sigh* I have to put up with the add-on VF-4 and VF-2 ... which I consider awesomely good actually.

    Testing a used Panasonic-Leica 15mm f/1.7

    Here's my test ; I hand the camera with 15mm on it to some stranger and ask them to take a picture. If they say "ooh that's a nice camera" the lens is a good 'un. (I'm easily pleased) Hope yours passes the brick wall test too!

    The Lumix S1R compared with the G9 and GH5s - gallery and text

    I'm sure the size of that thing has been debated with Panasonic's partners, part of the larger deal. They are not permitted to make it as small as an A7 ... yet.

    Panasonic Pancake Comparisons

    I have them both, mine cost about the same monies. The 20mm has F1.7, the zoom has zoom for zoomy type folk. They both fit in small spaces ; 20mm for a real man's pocket, zoom for the ladies in their handbags.

    E-PL8 as a second camera?

    My e-pL7 is superb. It works extremely well with the 12-32 but that's the wife's lens now. I mostly pop the VF-4 ontop, mosly use 15mm or 20mm primes. Good colour, fast operation, good stabilisation, decent controls, good screen.

    Should we open up Mu-43 to include subforums for other types of cameras?

    I love GetDPI and go there to find out what real working large-sensor folk do with expensive stuff, there are some really careful thinkers and good information. The m4/3rds section of that site reflects that and gives a good slant on the subject.

    Should we open up Mu-43 to include subforums for other types of cameras?

    Can't you use forum software to fiddle the URLs which appear to fool everyone into thinking they are the "main" forum, even if all systems exist in a sub-forum of your main site? Something like making it appear thus ; - mu-Cameras -------- mu-Canon...
