chiane: How can so many people have such different AF experiences?

even with latest firmware update my x100 is pretty much useless in dim light (constant hunting for focus that takes ages) and no such issues with m43 cameras

Markol: Purely from a subject matter perspective, these are the most useful samples I have seen here in a very long time. Kudos to whoever did them.
And some seriously beautiful scenery too. Really nice.
Now on to pixel peeping ;-)

could not agree more :)

In reply to:

picsnmorepics: I'm anxiously awaiting some sample images taken in the vein of low-light travel snaps. That's the way I'd likely use the LX100. I still have my LX3, it's a camera I can still find uses for. My travel kit has become a X100 and compact-zoom camera to add the interest shots. Right now that's a Nikon 1 V2. However, my wife has taken over full time with the N1 and that leaves me wanting for a companion to the X100.

When I saw the LX100 specifications, I couldn't help but want one. I've always liked the versatility of the LX3, but it gave way to the X10 and that to the N1V2. Under the right circumstances, the LX100 might replace the X100.

There are usage scenarios where I don't care if the camera has an interchangeable lens. Sometimes the compact design footprint that's achievable using an integrated lens trumps the more flexible interchangeable lens option. Whether there are enough people who feel the same way will be revealed shortly.

Search around, there are already some images on the net ...

Boss of Sony: Is this camera made of wood? I'm looking for a camera that's made of wood.

Indeed a major dealbreaker for me (if it's not made of wood)

In reply to:

mpix345: As amazing as the LX100 seems to be, I have to say that the more time passes the less interested I am. The lack of an onboard flash really is the killer for me, which I am now almost glad about, because if not for that fact I would have been willing to overlook the lack of touch screen and flip screen, which seem like ridiculous omissions from this level of camera.

Finally, that filter button just irks the hell out of me. Dedicated button for goofy filters? Seriously Panasonic? And not even an ND. SMH. And it's not even configurable to do something else, I don't think.

You tease us with this fast lens and generous sensor, but then fail to deliver some basic elements. Is that intentional, to create an easy path to the MKII version next year? I guess I hope so, but damn, I am tired of everyone playing that game.

If you took some time to read about it you would understand that there are some compromises to be made, having ND filter built in would make lens to-complicated and it is already one of the kind in its class. this camera is simply amazing as it is ...

In reply to:

burnin: An 'all-in-one" camera without a built-in flash doesn't make a whole lot of sense. At all.

If I had to choose I'd radder have hot shoe over build in flash if there is no place for both...

Jogger: I guess the PEN line is officially dead. Aside from a stripper entry model, there's really no room for it in the current Oly lineup. And, it doesnt make sense for a small player like Oly to have ore models than Canon or Nikon.

@peeveee currently e-pl6 is in stores in all major camera in holland, and they are selling 100 euros cheaper than e-pl5 !

I wish someone would sue fuji for x100 SAB problem, I was asked to pay 600euros by fuji service in Holland to have my x100 fixed ...

Matthewson: I really don't understand the push for mirrorless cameras. The latest installments from Olympus look like SLR's from the outside, with a "pentaprism" of sorts sitting on top. I'd vote down anything that adds cost, complexity, and battery draw. Peering at a tiny video of your scene serves only to separate the photographer further from his subject. The original OM line had reflex mirrors, and were compact. The only gripe I had back then, in the 80's, was the strap lugs dug into my palms. From the look of it, they're still putting those nasty strap lugs on their cameras.

" Peering at a tiny video of your scene serves only to separate the photographer further from his subject"
Thats Not true, and this is why: - this "tiny video" you're peering at is the same and ONLY one you will be peering at when you take the picture, there is no going back to real world view, you have a picture that you can print or view it on your monitor. Also current best olympus electronic vewfinder is as large as best optical viewfinders out there
About being separated from your subject - thats what I see when my DSLR friends shot, than put down the camera to look at display ( histogram etc ) = all this time I am still with the subject because I have all this info all the time ( or I can turn if off If I want )

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: So far, great!

My 2 cents, Fuji.

- Never go full frame
- Don't go plastic
- Strategize somehow so bodies, lenses too, maintain resale value. My old X-E1 kit, one year old, is only worth half now.

@RichRMA, my 2 and half year old x100 all metal build has dust & hairs in viewfinder, totaly WORN out metal lugs, no text left on buttons, and "sticky aperture blades"problem, and my plastic lumix Gh2, older than my x100 aside from some minor scratches no issues at all. So Ï'd say - plastic no problem at all!

In reply to:

write2alan: Here is an idea for Fujifilm: Make a camera body that can take Nikon lenses. Make a camera body that can take Canon lenses and etc... You'll sell truck loads of them overnight. Who has Fujifilm lenses? I don't see that many hands up.

or even better get a system with 2 camera manufacturers that also make lenses for the same system! = m43

it's good to have choices, one can get outstanding 45mm olympus for much less

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review preview (354 comments in total)
In reply to:

JJ Rodin: EOSHD said the video was essentially superior to the GH3 by a small margin, and only short of the BMCC/PPCC in rendering shadows. So equal or better than GH3 which we all know is only inferior to 5DIII & BMCC/PCC is a solid statement for its video.

So either DPR or EOSHD are not judging well.

The GM1 sensor is a new Panasonic built one, unlike the Sony sensor in GH3, some believe the GM1 foretells what to be expected for GH4 but full 4k video, &/or full sensor scans downcasting! Likely just good 4k video.

Good that Pan did not cripple GM1 like many other cam makers likely would! Good price considering.

I'll quote eoshd on it "The GM1 is a surprise in low light. At ISO 3200 the GH3 has a lot of brown noise crawling over the image and detail begins to smudge. The GM1 here outperforms the GH3 with a much cleaner image with less noise and richer colour. It’s actually on par with the best Super 35mm cameras for video like the Nikon D5200 for low light. But it resolves more fine detail than the Nikon and has more features, despite being the size of a compact camera."

that;s the strenght of this system, having two so different manufacturers making cameras and lenses with same mount
