    Do m43 lenses always have mtf charts just going to 10?

    Sorry for the noobish question, but what is the mount on this cam? Is it standard? Or you’d need an adapter for using other lenses?

    • Jeffry De Meyer

      M43 so everything Panasonic and Olympus makes for their cameras

    • m43 is a sensor/mount standard. Quite a few companies are behind it, but it’s probably biggest with videographers. I have enjoyed the system on and off since the GF1. Check out the more recent posts for additional clarification.

    $450, including a nice portrait lens? What are these people smoking?
