@DPR: How about the new electronic shutter?
-Does the electronic first curtain shutter prevents SS?
-Is there a limit for the duration of exposure when in electronic shutter mode, and does this option works with continious shutter--> for Startrail or Timeleapse (gx7 has 1sec limit, afaik)?
As it seems that the mkII uses the sony-made em-5 sensor, how about "banding" with the 20mm?
maybe this could be the right cam to leave my GF1 behind...
Hmmm im looking for a cheap and small travel tripod. Atm. i am using a hema mini tripod with my gf1. So im looking for a small and lightwight tripod, and it has to be cheap =/ (i know the storys about the tripod GAS, but i think if there is $$ i will better get a new camera...)
I have found some very cheap chinese "no-name" tripods all looking "the same": pergear bk7c, newest Q666 and Q777c or weifeng.
Anyone knows if those tripods can be compared to the ones tested here?
AD in KC: Upcoming poll: Hammer - vs- Screwdriver? Which is the BEST?
Raskolnikow90: Does anyone know if the aperture ring will work with an Olympus body or an old Panasonic llike the gf1?
Its a shame that some mft lens were not fully compatible with their oly/pana counterpart body... snapshot-focus, CA-correction, OIS/IBIS, aperture ring...its awesome to have such diversity... but there are always some limitations
Thank you for testing!

mpgxsvcd: Can Fuji make an M4/3s version of this lens? I would pay twice that for an M4/3s version that auto focuses and has image stabilization.
The price of the 42.5 will be announced in a few days...
Panasonic/Leica Nocticron 42,5 f1.2 with OIS ?
mrdancer: I was waiting for DPReview to do a full review of the GX7, but I suspect it will be very similar to this review. It looks like Olympus has adopted some of the in-camera features that the GX7 has, such as the color tool and intervalometer.
I've been shooting with a GX7 for a week or so now. It's low-light capabilities have surprised me. The starlight photos are, well, stellar! With shutter set to 60 seconds with the F1.4 lens, I can capture thousands (millions?) of stars in the backdrop of a sharply-focused tree or un-lit building(although the stars appear slightly blurry due to earth's rotation during the 60 seconds - at least they all blur in the same direction!). It even captures stars when there are bright landscape lights on the horizon.
Of course, shorter shutter speeds reduce star movement, but don't quite capture the depth that a million or so stars can create.
there is also a new trick from pentax, to use the IBIS to compensate for "startrailing"Astrotracer:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentax-k-5-ii-k-5-ii-s/7
Question: Does the new gx7 has a built-in intervalometer? Thank you!
Dear DPR team
could you plz do a statement concerning "leaks" like this one or the "brace yourselfe - om-d is coming article...
I think you allready have the cam, and in 1 week we will se a very nice hands-on preview.I like those previews, but i think for your credibility , which is among the highest, it would be good to know how those "leaks" / "promo" goes with ähhh "not revealing orders" from the cam companys... (even if there is no embargo by oympus) just make it clear to us.
What a beautyViewfinder, fast lens, fast speed, controls, raw and x-trans will prvide outstanding image quality...Nice to see such a cam, i hope competitors will follow..Its a pity there is no 24mm and nd filter, that probably would have make me dump my old GF(1) =)
Great work fuji!!!
