Worthless nonsense.

samfan: 600mm is certainly very practical without a built-in EVF.

But you know what bugs me most about these supposedly high-end compact cameras? An on/off BUTTON. Press, hold = delay.

I don't know why they don't use instantaneous mechanical on/off switches like on DSLRs and (these days, fortunately) MILCs. Anything that makes you wait in a camera is imperfect design, not to mention access in gloves etc. Besides everyone is going crazy with mechanical elements anyway.

Rushed photo = poor photo, unless you happen to be a reincarnation of Henri Cartier-Bresson.

morepix: No EVF, no sale. Too bad. Or is that a pop-up EVF to the left of the hot shoe?

Oh, I did hope it would! Thanks for letting me know that it'll work. Do you think I was too harsh?

morepix: I don't know if it's just a testing fluke or a real camera difference, but the studio comparisons at high ISO (1600, 3200) look a good deal better for the GM5 than for my LX100. I'm seeing my $900 going down the drain. :-(

@HowaboutRAW: Raw. Don't care much about JPG.

Congratulations, DPR!

As far as I can tell, Phil seems to have settled in Malaysia, supporting his son's development as an auto race driver!

Congratulations, DPR!

The content of the site continues to drift away from what it was under Phil. However, I chalk that up to the dominant marketing presence of Amazon, and not to any shortcomings of the current core staff. They're great guys. With all this other editorial stuff that's appearing, it's quite an achievement to turn out any reviews at all. I anticipate the day when DPR will disappear under the dark waters of Amazon marketing interest and long-time DPR participants will drift over to another site more like what they had and loved in those earlier years.

Thanks to those of you who have reminded me of the 2 EV advantage of the LX100 lens vs a kit lens on the GM5. I hadn't completely overlooked that fact, but I was still a wee bit disappointed that something in the studio test setup of the two cameras made the GM5 look better. I need to let that go: one can't have everything.

MtnBikerCalif: Is a µ4/3s sensor but not a µ4/3s camera? I don't see the markings for that on the camera.

Bigger question: will this lens work on the GX7?

Of course not. It's built into the camera.

If they'd just make the thing a bit bigger, they could drive out that upstart Sony RX100 III.

More seriously, this feature escalation threatens to shoot smartphone cameras in the foot. When the next phonecam is as complex as a D4s, the convenience, spontaniety, and creative potential are gone. So where will it stop?

If ACR/Lightroom could marry DxO Optics Pro, we'd have the best of those two worlds. But less competitive innovation.

Well, maybe what we call "straight lines" are actually circles. Who knows?

Silly news item. 50 things is frivolous. How about five? Maybe ten? Who has an interest in all that?

With this kind of erratic behavior, what happens to the value of the "Leica" brand name on Panasonic lenses? Might as well call them "McDonalds" lenses. For that matter, what's one to think an M9 is really worth?
