In reply to:

Hubertus Bigend: Great images, great effort! But, just curious, given how much intelligence and work they invested to recreate those images in the best possible quality, what made them stop before eliminating the heavy banding that is still there to see?

Don't start the conspiracy theorist off.

There is a certain way everything looks that reminds me of looking through old family albums.

I don't like a leica like a Sony

Just like a leica ought to be.

dpreviewprov: Why is "hand-built" is better than machine (or factory-robot) built?

I always thought that machine/robot-built is more precise and has LESS variations (or human error) than hand-built.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I dunno people can be pretty darn precise with a little practice.

proque: With respect to design, this Leica T model looks more like a Sony. Whereas Fuji X-cameras design look more like Leica. Interesting.

There's a joke in there somewhere.
Looks leika Sony.
Also fully agree with you.

Got the focus part right that is what I would have liked to see on the OM-D.
Also screen looks good.
But lets face it, this camera is butt ugly.

In reply to:

Justtimthen: The lens and sensor should be a two in one module that just clips on to the top side.

LOL Yes I mean like the Sony QX
I was a bit shocked when I looked that up.
It's a bit big though not to mention patented.

I think this bayonet idea is a good idea if the sensor is up to it.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 preview (99 comments in total)

It's a little fatter and weighs more? It might be a better picture taker but I want the same thing just smaller. plus second generation power zoom then I'll be heading off to the shops.

In reply to:

duartix: What a load of BULL!!!:

"We haven't been able to offer it - because of the limits of resources and of the Venus Engine processor"

Who do they think they are fooling?
Any camera engine that can do lens correction in FullHD could do Focus Peaking (FP) at the same resolution 10x as fast. FP can be trivially implemented by building a contrast map with a first order filter (like sharpening) and a saturation XOR with the original picture. You don't even need memory bandwidth for that as this is easily done locally.
Before anyone calls me on this, I have to say I've put it in terms that any layman understands about 4 years ago: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/32667860

My point is: This is BULL and there is no FP because Panasonic DOESN'T WANT it to be there. They have an upper market to protect. Even the OMD users have already found an artisan path to FP on a camera that has a much less powerful engine.

That or these guys are technically clueless, which I find very hard to believe.

I wouldn't go as far as to say Panasonic don't care what their customers want but it could be argued they don't care as much as the other major brands and for me, this rubbish illustrates exactly their problem. I would have gone Panasonic m43rds, I wanted the most compact system and they were providing it But living in Japan the menu only offers Japanese Unlike Olympus where I could download the English option. Isn't that crazy?

Can't believe the filters have been losing that much light! Real glad that Someone's on to it though.
If the intensity of light onto the sensor is doubled I wouldn't be surprised if the end result looks even better than 1 stop particularly under the dimmest lighting conditions.
It will gather more light without decreasing DOF which in some curcumstances maybe very desirable so I think this is pretty big. Well done PanI
