question

How do I get f3.5? The largest aperture I can get is f5.6 when I am in A mode. I want a narrow DOF and cant get it with this camera, please advise
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm not sure what your experience level is, so excuse me if you're already aware of this. But f/3.5 is only available when the lens is at 14mm. If you're zoomed in to 42mm, your widest aperture will be f/5.6. My best DOF from a similar lens (Panasonic Lumix 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6) was when shooting relatively small subjects (a bunch of acorns on a park bench @ 37mm & f/5.6, or a fallen leaf on my windshield @ 45mm & f/5.6) at near-minimum focusing distance with a background that was noticeably farther away.The 14-42mm, like the 14-45mm, is a basic kit lens. So you're not going to get serious DOF like you would from a prime lens like the 20mm f/1.7 II or from something like the 12-35mm f/2.8.Best of luck to you though. I hope this was helpful.

Does B&H sell only the body? I have the 14-42 lens that came with the GX1 and so I really don't need another one, but I am interested in getting another GX7.

question

Is this a good upgrade from an FZ50? I want something smaller.
Asked by: Richard D.
Richard, I dont know anything about your FZ250 so I cant comment whether the GX7 would be a upgrade. Just came home yesterday from a 3 wk trip to Nz and Au and used the GX7 for the first time under real world conditions. 1. It rained quite a bit and the GX7 is not water proof so I was very careful. 2. I do not have a smart phone so I'm not hep to touch screens. Found I was constantly moving focus point inadvertently. Missed some clear images because of it. Also going back and forth with the touch points on the LCD was sometimes a problem for me. 3. The camera is loaded with a lot of features that were helpful. HDR, panorama, guidelines, highlight warning, live histogram, flip up/down lcd screen and others. I mostly used the eye viewfinder as my glasses are transition and made the lcd screen difficult at times. 4. I did not use the the 14-42. I used a 14-140 as it is more versatile for traveling. Its not great but OK. For inside museums etc I used a Pany 20mm. Its a very sharp lens. The images from it are easily identified from the 14-140. 5.Overall the camera is a nice size. I decided to down size from a Nikon D300 and 18-300 which was a burden to carry around.
