On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2077 comments in total)

Hi, I am wondering if someone can help me to decide the best camera solution for my needs. Currently I own an Olympus Pen-2 with couple of lenses. I use it to shoot events, travel, holidays and leisure but of course my aim is to make brilliant, high resolution and amazing images. The main needs is to have a camera that should not be noticed by most people (otherwise people get distracted)...., that has a fast enough burst rate (around 8 fps), HDR built in, EV manual controls, at least 16 megapixels, a sensor with truly low noise in shadow. The Panasonic GX8 and the Olympus Pen-F where the initial solutions (maybe Panasonic better because its more accurate focusing and frame/second), but than I got a bit puzzled by Canon PowerShoot GX-7, Fuji xPro-2, Sony a6300... Mmm, what shall I do? Are those other cameras offering betters image quality in terms of low noise, manual controls and overall features?

....And what is the advantage for the Panasonic to have the WiFi with NFC while the Pen-F has a simple WiFi only?

Hi all, I was thinking to buy a Pen-F. However I have major concern about the following negative feedback from dpreview about: Sports and action shooter seeking a camera that can both fire bursts, while maintaining focus on a moving subject..... Is the Panasonic GX8 truly better for sport and action photography? Or maybe a simple firmware update might fixed this issue soon for the Pen-F ?

Dear Don B.,
Photoshop is to me the best solution for image enhancement and optimization. For image capture you need indeed a dedicated and stand alone solution. This is how it works in the real life. Putting everything together will be not possible. Asking Leaf/PhaseOne to make a replica and integrate their capture solution into a Photoshop like is just too much. And the same to Adobe. Asking Adobe doing that, it is not their focus.
I find in my workflow a very stable way. First step I use Capture One and second step in Photoshop. I get the best from the 2 worlds without much hassle.

It is a very great software. I have used it since version 6.x and I love it. Very fine controls and tuning. A perfect companion for Photoshop. But in some cases, like color control, I find it actually even more powerful :-)

Sorry for the silly question: is this camera able to accept I guess with the Canon M mount, Panasonic and Olympus 4:3 lenses? If yes, I will still have all controls in my camera (ie. autofocus, and so on....).

Hi all, I know it is early to ask but if you are a semi-pro photographer and need this kind of Micro Four Thirds system camera, considering to go for bigger sensor and top quality, along with very fast images/second, which brand and model you would consider at first?

1. Olympus Pen- EPL-3?
2. Samsung NX10?
3. Panasonic GF3?
4. Sony Nex-5?
5. Nikon V1?

Any suggestion is VERY welcome!
