  • My copy for example, sometimes when I switch on the camera, does nothing, all black. I have to switch-off & then on again, so the camera will start properly working. Anyone has same experience?

  • The focus transition feature is not available with my Panasonic 20mm 1,7 H-H020 Firmware 1.1 lens.

    I hope this can be fixed with a camera/lens firmware update as this is my favorite native Lens.

    Other older lenses I tried do work fine: Panasonic 14mm 2,5 H-H014 Firmware 1.0 OK Panasonic 14-42mm 3,5-5,6 H-FS014042 Firmware 1.0 OK Panasonic 14-42mm 3,5-5,6 H-PS014042 Firmware 1.2 OK

    It would also be great to be able to controll the focus transitions with the panasonic app. Not yet implemented.

  • Hmm, I have only the 25mm f/1.7 from Pana, I'll check if it works with focus transition..

  • Same with mine. Very happy with it.

  • due to the problem I described above, my GH5 has been sent to Panasonic already more than a week now. They say they're waiting a part from Japan, so no camera till the end of the month... Today I had to shoot an event with my Canon 7D, I so much regretted...
