Jim Salvas: What fun! But, hey, guys, we're also waiting for a test of continuous AF with the E-M1’s new firmware. This would have been a good opportunity.

is this e-m3-ii c-af with old 4/3 lenses or new m4/3 lenses???

webrunner5: You have to admit in the beginning Panasonic Jpegs sucked. They were terrible. They have come a long ways. I like them better now then the over saturated Oly Jpegs. Not that the Oly ones are terrible. Just not really realistic.

Both are doing well and that is a good thing. Rocky start for sure, but they may have made the right idea in the long run. Grats too both of them.

new jpg engine is indeed miles ahead from my Gh2 files. very good job here

nerd2: 85mm f3.5 portrait prime? Not interested at all.
Oh and it's priced $399... you can get the excellent nikkor 85mm 1.8G at only $50 more.

I have a small kid and both nikor 85 , 1.8 on d600 and oly45mm on em5. I like both systems alott, but there are some key diferences:
both lenses are sharp, good enough for me, but nikor does not let me get as close to a baby face as oly and vigneting is more than obvious wide open

ryan2007: In the micro four thirds class, Panasonic has always been innovative and first to the market place with great products. They were the first with the 12-35 & 35-100 mm 2.8 zooms.

Good for micro four thirds and Panasonic. I knew from the start they were a better product than Olympus in this MFT's niche.

and thats what makes m43 so good, =2 different manufacturers competing and complementing each at the same time! no other system offers that!

I am glad to see that someone finally put the option to bind jpg made in camera to its raw. both on my d600 and x100 I have to spend alott time going back and forth when I want to process more raws in camera because I am always taken to the end of the line

In reply to:

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 ;-)

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 ...

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 ...
