Today was a good day, until this anti-climatic announcement came.
- From a long time Canon shooter.
This might be the first and last time that I say this to a M43 lens:
It's priced reasonably. Given it's longer range than 70-200 FF lens, it is way way more versatile, and I have confidence in the IQ of a Oly HG lens. Oh....also, the 0.21x magnification, taking into account of the crop factor of M43 sensor, is class-leading.
Omexis: One thing that I don't get, with all that resolution why put a 3” 460 x 320 screen on the back?
O yea, lets remove all the buttons altogether since this camera is likely shot tethered.
It's simply stupid implementation with a crappy screen period.
qwertyasdf: Every camera bag from Manfortto looks hideous, even this rebranded Kata, the Kata one looks way better.

I have always thought that travel size CF tripods have no advantages over aluminium ones, and the recent reviews seem to agree with my observations.
BTW, I don't think it's sensible to have separate reviews for CF and AL tripods, because if a person is in the market for a tripod, they'd certainly compare both.
ARB1: I wonder if I can just purchase the little red Leica sticker and put it on my Olympus OMD.
Sure you can, be prepared to shell out $1,000 for it.
Michael Piziak: Those 5 tripods look very similar - almost as though they were made by the same company.
The Dolica looks exactly like my Sirui...
qwertyasdf: I had been using the PS I bought like some 5 years ago, I don't even know if it's a CS 5 or 6. No issues, no subscription crap.
Does having the latest (not necessarily the greatest) PS matters so much to a real photographer?Aren't there many great photos created before PS even existed?
Sorry guys, if you think that having this CC is so important to your pictures, you might just not be a good enough photographer.
Put it another way: Adobe made great products in the past.

What is equivalence???
It's something trolls eat for breakfast.
SammyToronto: Typical example of a company charging an exorbitant price for a camera not based on merit, but because they can. They were one of a kind in the market, so, to Sony, that meant ripping off their customers is fair game. Thank God for Panasonic, and competition in general!
Why don't you work for free first before complaining???
Ben O Connor: ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCERS OUT THERE (metabones, sigma, etc.) PLEASE MAKE A BELLOWS HOOD FOR A M43 SYSTEM ALSO LOOKS COOL! AS THIS ONE HERE... PLEASE.
I hope I screamed loud enough that they'd all heard me !
It's not a hood though.
Felix E Klee: Crop factor?
1.5x202.5mm, F9.45 equivalent in terms of DOF.
Wait...A long lens doesn't take you closer...it's the complete opposite.
Refreshing to see quality pictures on DPR!!
When panny says it has fast af,im sure its freaking fast.
As a canon 1d user, i cant say im impressed with af performance on panny bodies. I was simply stunned..... since gf3!
Minos82: I will shed a tear with grad photographers when all of the following becomes true:- Grad images stop charging extortionate fees from already indebt students for their graduation image
- These images are indeed actual work of art and not an industrialized process devoid of any workmanshipand finally:
- Grads are given the opportunity to actually have friends or family step in the very place the photographer is during the graduation ceremony so as to take shots of "the moment". This "golden position", devoid of any obstruction, is unfortunately reserved/attributed in a monopolistic way to these people therefore preventing parents to take better pictures of their own offsprings' graduation
Untill then, no tears from me. Those businesses, clothed as education institutions, would sell your homeworsk to tabloids if they could.
It's not a work of artAn automatic photobooth can do exactly the same thing, if not better and more consistent.
samfan: I just calculated that if I'd shot a roll of Tri-X every day, and had it developed and scanned, even the mono Leica M would pay for itself in just 18 months (probably sooner if you factor in the cost of a decent film M body).
Buying bulk and developing and scanning yourself - and the M pays for itself much sooner in saved time.
I don't know why are so many people so confused. Film is bloody expensive.
A roll a day...
qwertyasdf: May I request DPR to compare the 24mm against a lens that is lab tested to be 24mm??
Actually I didn't mention it, but I'm interested in the FOV differenceThe lenses on compact cameras are mostly software compensated, its interesting to know the IQ and FOV penalty.
