obviously i don't know a single song of "the most successful commercial pop stars of all time", but on the other hand i am rather into miles davies and herbie hancock, so hardly representative.
was this image shot through a window? there are several soft spots in this image spread across the whole frame that i cannot quite explain:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-alpha-7-ii/samples/experience/a7IISamp008.jpg
brycesteiner: This is seriously considered a sport?
formula 1 is also regarded as sport, which I never quite understood.
mmartel: I see more luma noise in the shadows than I would have expected at ISO 400 on a u4/3 sensor, recognizing that's easily tunable to taste. Doesn't really bother me, personally, just an observation that, as a Nikon CX and DX user, noise profile seems closer to what I see in my CX than DX.
this image was brightned up 2/3 stops with the shadows pushed even more, which would result in an exposure of around iso1200 in the darker areas.
kadardr: Makes more sense than the GM1.
GM1 is smaller
Astrotripper: On the right image, it looks like little amoebas, you can even see a trail as it moved :)
maybe it is a glass fungus?
Zvonimir Tosic: First the amazing GX7, now LX100. This is brilliant; real thinking outside the box.
i don't see any sony camera that small with a 4/3 sensor and such a fast lens, or did i miss something?
please make this lens available for m43 too!!!!
i am sure this "cheap" toy cam will have a larger raw-buffer than my GM1!
The Panasonic lens seems better at the right side, while the Sony is sharper at the left.A pity both lenses are not tested through their entire zoom-range to really show which has the edge in performance.
Altruisto: This is exactly why I use ZS40 only in RAW mode. Panasonic JPEGS suck. The combo lens+sensor in ZS40 are quite decent for the category, and RAW helps get the most out of it.
decent? it looks as if it was taken with a toy-lens!
wootpile: Apart from faster lens / dof difference... the GM1 with kit lens runs circles around it in studio IQ scene. Smaller sensor, more pixels, much smaller package, same price... go figure.
the studio scene was not shot with the 12-32 kit-lens, but with the 45/1.8
although the 12-32 is not that bad, it is much slower than the canon lens and suffers from softness at 12mm
deep7: Is it my imagination or is the lens sharper on the left than the right?
doesn't seem to be consistent, the next shot is taken with moreorless the same focal length, but looks ok.
there seems to be a frustrating bug with saving-procedure on the GM1:
after power-on the first frame always takes too long to write, so when shooting 5 frames, the camera is blocked for another 15 seconds until you can take another shot. not only the buffer is too small taking only 5 shots (raw+jpeg) the saving seems to be screwed up as well. after the first frame was written, all other frames are saved much faster.
have a look where i tried to demonstrate the problem:http://youtu.be/wwLDBUFVJuc
oluv: this proves that the GM1 could have had a tilt-display without adding too much bulk...
did you have a look at the E-PL5? its tilt-screen looks like a clumsy sticked on extra, while the NX mini has a screen which is an integral part of the camera. it doesn't look out of place or sticks out. this is what i would have loved with the GM1 as well. and if you look at the GM1, the sensor-plane is in near the center of the camera. there would definitely be enough place for a tilt-screen, maybe panasonic just doesn't have the know how yet for such thin displays?

unmanned drones with cameras on board are already forbidden in austria without certification of austro control and given permission for each flight!
