  • I seriously read up on the Nikon A (and Canon) a while back, when they had great deals on them.  It seems that one of the biggest drawback to fixed lens camera - is getting dust on the sensors ...
  • I'm somewhat puzzled by the last 3 images - how many submissions were there, like 8? The winner is pretty interesting, as is the chair picture. To some extent.

  • Replied in Agree on flip up
    I use the flip up viewfinder on the GX7 all the time: (1) Not to view / compose, but as I wear the camera around my neck on my chest.  This way the viewfinder doesn't dig into my chest (more comfortable).
  • Replied in Size
    The GX7 had the best shallow grip I've yet used on a camera, even if it's not so aesthetically pleasing perhaps.  The rubber wide grip is very comfortable to hold, and didn't really see much ...
  • Wish they would have kept the old grip.  It was very comfy.  I thought it looked odd initially, but now I think this new cam's grip looks .... boring.  Otherwise, the new cam looks more refined.
  • The rumor surprised me, in that typically there's some sort of hint of what the lens is.  As this is coming out of the blue, I'm guessing it's a simple remake of the 25mm 1.4 - full metal with ...
  • Well if you with the Panny GM5 + 12-32MM lens, you'll be even more ahead in terms of portability.  I've looked at multiple fixed lens large sensor cameras,  I was quite interested in the Nikon ...
  • Replied in Primes baby
    So I have a dissenting view it seems.  I've tried the 2.8 zooms before, and felt that I wasn't getting such a big boost in either low light, IQ, or subject isolation (compare to kit zooms).  The ...
  • The new lens looks great - regardless of not being able to compare numbers.  As others have said, its performance seems to match expectations, as well as its Leica label.  Lot of discussions about ...
  • I'm sorry - but what other lens do you shoot with?  These examples exactly highlight why this lens isn't so great.  It renders somewhat flat, lacks micro contrast, as well as overall sharpness.  I ...
  • Size is the first thing I checked as well.  The 14-140mm is really excellent at 14-60 (well it's excellent every focal length actually).  It's not splash proof.  Nor is it 12mm.  I'll have to ...
  • There's not one fixed lens large sensor compact that hasn't encountered dust on the sensor - either from the factory or after a few months use (no difference really if it's from the factor or ...
  • I'm puzzled by the concern over the Pen F, or any other m43 product for that matter. Compare Panny and Olympus to the other manufacturers. None take as much risk in trying new ideas, pushing the ...
  • I evaluated the various options, and selected the GM5. Couldn't be happier with it - actually, it became my primary camera, with the GX7 being the 2nd body. I use it more than the GX7, not just ...
  • A brick wall is best. Mine is slightly de-centered. It's a bit soft on the left side, especially the top left corner. However, comparing it to online tests, I believe mine is sharper in the ...
  • Congrats to the OP and Peter on 2 great posts. Yes, irony in the comments above is the subsequent comparison by Peter highlighting the strengths of the LX100, balancing out the thread. What's a ...
  • Not sure how others are not seeing it, I also noticed the apparent sliding but small hood. The puzzling thing is why did they do size comparison shot with the hoods extended, and again why have a ...
  • I love the GM5. As much as I get excited about this announcement, I realize that rationally it's hard to beat the GM5 for travel / street photography. The 15mm. 1.7 prime, the tiny but very sharp...

  • Replied in Pan 15 1.7
    Others have already said it.  The contrast of the Panny 15mm and rendering is definitely better, in fact it's wonderful, just like the 25mm 1.4.  I've shot with both, tested both, and have the ...
  • Any stock tips by any chance?
