nathansmith: "It will provide the angle of view and depth of field control of an 86mm F3.2 lens for a full-frame system" is in the 2nd line.
See why ALL Micro Four-Third lenses lose two full f-stops of depth of field control at http://discoverfullframe.com.
so rpm , bascially we all be shooting with pentax Q system otherwise we are larger sensor zealots. There is nothing to larger sensor than its size in mm, isn't it.
dickg1: If Panasonic thinks this camera is going to seriously compete with the Canon S110 in attracting the "enthusiast" crowd, they screwed up big time!
In my mind, the feature that sets the Canon S110 apart from the majority of its peers is a 24mm wide end.
I recently sold my S95 and bought the S110 for just that reason. I'd much rather give up a 200mm long end to get a 24mm wide angle. The difference between 24mm & 28mm is much greater than the diffeence between 120mm and 200mm.
personally for me, the difference of 24mm to 28mm is huge one. I won't buy any compact that does not provide 24mm or wider. If it does not have 24 mm then no matter how long it has on tele-end it is useless for me. That 80mm difference can not make 28mm lens act as an 24mm lens , no matter what you do.
pixelatorcw: I am very satisfied with the Speedbooster I bought for the Sony E mount system. Using a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 lens on my Sony Nex-6 given an effective aperture of f/1.0. Great!
what stolen light?? there is/was not light that is stolen. When you try to be pedantic, how about you yourself use correct terminology.
zxaar: Is there any details about camera lens available. That is how wide to tele it is in terms of 35mm. Also details of aperture would help. Does anybody know this.
thank you. Even this much is good help. I tried searching about it and all i got was that it has 14 MP camera, as if thats all to a camera.

Kurt_K: Unless a person is only planning on using this with pancake lenses, I'm not sure what the point is.
@panos_m: Not entirely true. Lens size is dependent on sensor size only if you decided to create smallest possible lenses. Then this limit comes into play. Smaller sensor's lens designers could design a lens that is bigger than larger sensor's lens. So it is design dependent too. BTW there are some ultra small lenses available for 35mm film cams.
Jonathan F/2: Korean website Popco.kr has done a very good review with lots of pictures, videos and samples!
its not written in japanese
I don't say this quite often. Wonderful and excellent photo.
57even: Just for the record, and for all the people here whose opinions are so important (to them), I have been reading DPR's reviews for a very long time and I have never once found any discrepancy between the reviewer's findings and my own for any camera I have actually used. Make that around 10 so far.
So, if you don't like a camera for the simple reason that DPR likes it more that yours, there are three possible reasons....
1. They were considering the target user, not you. It's perfectly possible a more left field camera (Sigma DP1?) may actually work perfectly for you because the cons don't matter and the pros do - to YOU. Go for it. I respect your choice.2. You don't understand how the reviews are conducted and the significance of the findings and conclusions. This seems pretty common judging by the comments.3. You really need to grow up. No-one cares if you don't own the best camera in the world, or if you are insecure about making the "wrong" choice.
Just take photographs.
@Jade it was an old sony camera, at that point in time no other camera maker had two slots. This became a pro when canon (or perhaps nikon) introduced two slots. It was absurd from dpr and lots of people in sony forum cretisized them.
"I have been reading DPR's reviews for a very long time and I have never once found any discrepancy between the reviewer's findings and my own for any camera I have actually used. " ------------------ Really. I give you one from top off my head. In one of reviews of Sony camera DPR found that having two memory slots is a con. Now let me know how you find having two memory slots is less helpful then having just one.
tompabes2: And still we don't have a review on dpreview... maybe they're too occupied reviewing tablets on Connect....
"likely won't sell" ---------- Is the reason that there is no review for Q and Q10 is 2 years old will be the excuse for not reviewing Q10. The way pentax is dissed by DPR, it used to be the same with others like Sony Oly pana etc around 2006 or so. Once Sony ditched DPR and gave camera to other review site that produced review on release date. Things changed for Sony on DPR. I think Pentax Ricoh should also ditch DPR. If dpr does not think of their cameras it would be right not to give cameras etc to dpr and move on to other sites that really give some importance to them.
"The original Q is, but that's because they slashed the price to $240. It's only competing with compact cameras at that point. "---------------- Conclusion more people buying it. Where is the review now??
"DSLRs and major mirrorless cameras, actually." ------------- how do you know it is not among the major cameras. Do you have figures etc as to how much it is selling etc. The only figure I know of is that Q out-sold OMD in japan in 2012. But then OMD is considered among the major cameras. If you do not have figures to back up then , it is your opinion only and not a fact.
GeorgeZ: For most users the EM5 delivers more pleasing photos without pp.For RAW shooters it's a different story. In normal light I'm still happy with my old D50, but when the time comes to buy a new camera I will switch to M43 thanks to Olympus' jpeg magic and the nice lenses available. Nikon shows nothing here that would sway ME to stay with them.
@olypan, your comments say much about you than about dxomark. Anyway the reasons for delay in E-M5 results were that oly was playing tricks and that was tricking dxomark.
ZAnton: I don't see much sense in that expenive lenses for m43. For a FF or APS-C you get those lenses for 1/3 of the price, why on earth does this thing cost 550 Euro? It is smaller (less glass), it is for smaller sensor (you dont have problems in corners as on FF), there is no stabilisation, but yet this simplest prime costs more than a camera...I have FF and m43, but untill prices on m43 lenses will stay unconnected to reality, I will continue to broaden my FF lens collection, while Oly Pen will live with its kit lens.
" If enough people follow your lead, it will drop in price or disappear. " ----------------- that explain where 4/3 went and that would be used to explain m43 too.
AliRoust: You 'll get killed by vignetting wide open and you won't get the background blur cause a 1.2 is really a 2.8 on m 4/3. I had a real bad experience with the Panasonic leica 50 m 1.4. Plus it looks cheap.
"LOL at people who think 135-format is king of bokeh. " -------------- with given lense choices indeed 135 format is king of dof control.
marike6: Since the XZ-2 uses a Sony sensor, I'm guessing the XZ-10 uses the same 12 mp BSI CMOS Sony sensor that the Pentax Q uses. I've owned the Q, and IQ in RAW is very good. Maybe not the same level of detail, or per-pixel sharpness of larger sensor compacts, but good IQ nonetheless.
But the XZ-10 looks like a capable camera with a well-done small case and hopefully good IQ. For this price, I'd prefer an MX-1 which is only slightly larger with a similar lens, but I have a fondness for retro cameras like the MX-1 and X20. Others may have different needs. That's why we have so many choices.
i think this is 1 up on Q because if i exclude fisheye the widest lens for Q is 28mm while this gives you 26mm. Still both of them not there where i want them to be. Want 24mm.
Richard Murdey: 1:1.8-2.7
Wow. That's all you need to know, right there.
it is actually pretty good considering it has 26mm lens.
nosnoop: Why no 5-axis stabilization?
If they can put the 5-axis stabilization in lower priced SH-50, why would they not put it in their "premium" XZ compact? This would go a long way to justify its price.
@ Timmbits , it will still be overpriced for what it is. Do you want to add few more things so that oly can justify the price.
andreaThode: Sorry Sony, I'm still not sold on your Nex/E-mount system. I will stick to m4/3 with Fujifilm as the next runner up for everyday/travel. I certainly dig their efforts more in terms of lens roadmap.
" Must be the reason why you don't use your real name. Good day to you and all the best!" ------------------ If you had intelligence you could get my name from my profile. Second if anyone is really interested he can ask me directly. My name does not matter anyway. I do not think i am important enough that anyone would want to know my name.
