    I just got this new Lumix GM-1. It is taking some great high ISO shots and the noise is very pleasing without any post needed. I got it from Taiwan because I liked the orange one so video is PAL, but I don't care and can convert in post if I ever use it.

    It looks odd with the 35-100, but I finely found a camera that my Oly 45 doesn't look stupid on.

    This is a ISO 6400 shot with no post other then LR defaults (mild sharpening) when I converted from RAW to JPG. It also has the best auto WB Iv'e ever had in a camera. This restaurant has very harsh yellow light and I always have to fix it in post, but didn't feel the need with these. I also didn't need to put on a faster lens. I'm sure it will love my 20mm 1.7 as this was shot at 5.6 with the kit lens. I'm sure with a little PP this would clean up very nicely, but for FB and general social photography this might be the best camera ever!

    The 45 does look good/balanced size wise, on it. Would like to see the 20 on it. I also like the orange leather look.

    The 20 looks a little odd but feels OK when holding the camera.

    The two shots of the CD's were shot JPG with no PP.

    Taiwan isn't NTSC? Why is it PAL?

    Here's my black with hand grip and 20mm 1.7. I really want the silver and black version but it's not available in Canada.

    China is PAL and so should be Taiwan like the rest of Asia except Japan.

    Not sure, but it has 24P so I can work with it if I ever want to. All I cared about was the English menu.

    You wish to have the silver and black version, and I am wanting the all black version which is not available for me to purchase.

    I don't live in Taiwan, but I'm pretty sure it's NTSC. Perhaps the camera originally came from HK or China?

    You're welcome.

    While the Oly 45 is slightly larger then the lens mount, it's only about a mm or two so it still works just fine and the tri-pod plate fits nice and flat against the cameras bottom.

    The 35-100 does look a bit crazy on the GM1, impressed by how much smaller that body is than a GX1.

    I was playing around with burst mode today and have a couple of series. The first one shows what might be the jello/shutter effect or the ball might have just been going too fast for the SS. I'm not sure which caused it. I had the camera in S mode and set to 1/1600's. You also should keep in mind that I'm throwing the ball as hard and as strait as I can at the dog with my left hand and shooting burst mode with my right hand, so the camera is moving a lot during the 4 shot burst.

    Focal length: 12 mm
    Shutter speed: 1/1600 sec
    Aperture: F5.6
    ISO: 200
    Exposure comp.: ±0.00

    When I looked at it I wished I had used my GH3 so there would have been more shots.
