    Panasonic, and we photographers, are fortunate to have your input into making photo gear achieve new levels of performance. There probably isn't a better representative of "photographers" on the planet; thankfully, Lumix recognizes your wisdom and experience.

    Glad I bought into this system, the Panasonic G85 is a joy to use and a very well thought out product. Everything about it is just right. Any talks of future lenses? They'll be done with the Panasonic-Leica 2.8-4 zooms soon (hopefully the 50-200 will be released) and it would…

    Panasonic Leica Shares Technology Behind Lenses When Panasonic introduced their line of Lumix cameras back in 2001, they began what has turned out to be a very rewarding relationship with the folks at Leica.
