Which zoom did you get?
I was going to wait a while for a prime but I bought a 45-150 Panasonic and the image quality seems miles better than the kit lens I've got.

I doubt I'd be carting two primes about tbh, I'm just not sure the Panasonic is worth double the price of the sigma....

I've got the 20mm f1.7 and i think it is very good for the money. I bought a zoom as well but thought it was cack so the 20mm hasn't been off the camera since. If you think you will use both the Sigmas then it might be worth going for it but maybe try the shorter one first and see if you need another. I always prefer travelling light with the minimum of kit and sticking to one focal length can really help you get better at composition, you actively move and seek out better viewpoints instead of just zooming or changing lenses all the time. I'm probably going to be replacing my MFT stuff with a Fuji X100s soon though as it is closer to what I want from a pocket camera.

Take your camera body to a shop and fire off some tests, see what feels best. If the shop is funny about it then go elsewhere but do try them all out.

Hi guys
Right then, I bought a new camera a while back, I'm now looking at getting a decent prime but in MFT format they're rather pricey.
There's a 20mm 1.7 or a 45mm 1.8 (double them for 35mm equiv) both well over 200 quid, and a Leica 25mm @over 400

The 45 is too long, the 25 too expensive

Sigma also do a 19mm 2.8 and a 30mm 2.8, I can get both for the price of the Panasonic 20.

I can't decide whether to get the more expensive 20 or the 2 sigmas??

Any thoughts?

sparrow hawk. lovely. You will get it eventually

its all about lucky timing really.

The one thing I do to help myself out is i have the camera with the long zoom attached
loosely sitting in its bag by the kitchen back door. as thats where im most likey to look out
and see something.

of course, it sometimes has to be quickly run up the stairs to a bedroom window for a shot. then usually left up there
for the next time, when it has to be quickly retrieved. all thw time with me swearing and cursing , maybe fumbling to change a lens. only to find the chosen bird has long gone.

Got ya!



well happy. even if it was through my sons bedroom window. luckily the glass was clean. he flew off when i opened
it as gently as I could. So i think i made the right decision to take a shot first. ive seen him a few times and allways on the ground.

itsm different that it autmaticall focuses each shot ?

Come again?

Each shot focuses with the intervalometer, you can also do exra long exposure shots or just use it as a shutter release, great bit of kit.

I went to get the g3, but they only had the display model and wouldn't do a deal. In a different shop I got the g5 for 30 quid more with 2 class10 cards and a basic cleaning kit

No it doesn't, just the self timer that locks focus when you push the shutter button, not much use for self takes
I got an intervalometer on Amazon for 20 quid, works very well
