Panasonic Lumix 14 f2.5 I

However, mount it on one of the smaller bodies like a GM1 or GM5 and you have a perfect carry everywhere camera system.

In all we were five guests on the boat and two crew members. Two crew were necessary because the five us hadn’t a clue about sailing, but that didn’t deter us from enjoying the trip. The boat was a 54 footer with 3 ...full

Short Post about my Panasonic GM5 Love Affair.
I believe I've mentioned that the Panasonic GM5 really got my attention after I took it with me to the south of France last year (as an afterthought). The camera and the lenses made for it are so small and light you really don't realise that you're carrying them around with you. full
