samfan: So we see how much Nikon dropped the ball with the development of N1:- no really small body like Samsung NX-mini- no IQ like RX100- no 24mm eq. lens like RX100 III- No practical lenses like in RX10 or this Panasonic- lenses not smaller than 4/3- not to mention price
Well, good to see that other camera makers now see the advantage of a 1" sensor. Seems to be an ideal size for small cameras.
Now someone make a decent 1" ILC please?
What an uneducated comment. No 24mm eq. lens? lol
ManuelVilardeMacedo: Excuse me if I sound profoundly naïf, but isn't it much more fun to do with the lens? I mean, once you've mastered the technique?I do agree with the commenter below who deemed this as a 'bone-tosser'.
Exactly. Most people here seem to think the tool selects magically the area you want to have in focus from an evenly sharp photo. It doesn't of course.
Funny comments. People should read the title and maybe watch the video if reading isn't their strongest skill.
davids8560: Is this tool sort of like the Big Lens iPhone app? It makes your iPhone images appear to have bokeh.
Obviously it's not.
Artpt: Would DPR consider reviewing more target waterproof cameras....like the Intova Sport II or even the Go Pro Hero+ Black in their upcoming round up?
The convergence of photo and video abilities is already showing in your traditional camera reviews. In as much as some may shun video, it is part of our growing technology.
More selfishly, I plan some snorkeling shortly and these camera are a real interest.
Thanks to all.
RichRMA: In 1994, Olympus released an iPod device called the mRobe. They had an ad on the Superbowl . The product was a good one, better than most at the time, but it wasn't a success. I hope they do better with this divergence from their normal path.
ageha: The lenses still look like designed by Panasonic...
Wow, you remember the whole NV series? I don't apparently.
Anyway, both grips' front faces are parallel? I think I never saw another camera body with a feature like that before the NEX appeared. It simply can't be, it's as unique as the rectangular display or the round dials.
Not just one, it was a whole series of devices.
pwmoree: So 1000 euro equals 1390 usdollar. Why is this lens 39 percent more expensive here in Europe? The 390 $ difference almost buys you a plane ticket to the USA to go and get one and have a weekend in NY included..
Nobody pays customs.
Seriously, just because the Leica has two dials next to each other? The cameras don't look alike at all on that posted photo. Yeah sure, both look like cameras.
The Leica's body looks more like a copy of Samsung's NV series: http://www.fotopolis.pl/media/obrazki/NV10bisPrzod.jpg
Ralf B: This lens definitely needs controlled backgrounds for its bokeh characterhttps://s3.amazonaws.com/masters.galleries.dpreview.com/2897503.jpg?X-Amz-Expires=3600&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAJ7ICBHXPIPPMTNCQ/20140529/us-east-1/s3/aws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20140529T115209Z&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=a835a6936ab75fd16bb32e0232442f2daeee86d8a132a904c164540ac3e80dc5The Sony FE 55/1.8 appears as having much smoother bokeh. I prefer the CZ 135/1.8 for my Sony Alpha A mount FF for its combination of sharpness matching this lens a n d silky smooth bokeh. It appears as much more forgiving if you cannot avoid a busy fore/background.http://kurtmunger.com/sony_135mm_f_1_8_carl_zeissid266.html
Nope but who cares...
Minus all the buttons. Not really...
Fortunately the VAT standard rate isn't allowed to be lower than 15% under EU law in any EU state. :)
In the end it doesn't matter, demand will be higher than stock. Prices are just arbitrary numbers, they aren't related to the product value in any way. Sigma is simply trying to get the highest possible price out of your pocket like any other manufacturer. :)
I guess the quality is OK for a 1/2.3"...
ThePhilips: Pana produces real nice P&S.
I wish I have started with Pana and not Canon.
Why does it matter? It's a P&S, not a system. You can switch anytime.
Yup, throwing the CZ 135/1.8 in here is pointless. If I'm looking for a 50mm I don't care about 135mm.
