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!
I don't get it. How does Canon manage a 12-60/2.0-3.9 with this size, when a Lumix 12-35/2.8 is 4 times as large?What's the "micro" all about with MicroFourThirds, when they don't manage such lenses like Canon did. Even if the lens was 2 times longer because it cannot retract inside the body, it would still be much smaller than the 12-35! I thought I was happy with my GM1 and 12-32, as most of the time I thought I would leave the kit-lens on, but this G1X just kills my GM1!
MJ Jones: At this focal and 200 ISO setting, it's disappointing to see so much pixel smudge on the full-size image.
that's an art filter for sure!
oluv: mFT needs at least f/1.2 lenses to compete with the rest. is f/1.8 all olympus can come up with?
yeah, three f/0.95 with manual focus, thanks!
wow, looks extremely soft, but i have no idea if it is the lens, wrong focus or shutter shock?

wow 349$ = 399€ for the 14-42! shouldn't it be the other way round?
Actually the same size as E-M5. No near as small as has been suggested by the first rumored comparison images.
HubertChen: What am I missing? The X-T1 has the viewfinder in middle of the camera, which is ergonomically bad, as now my nose is colliding with the display. The previous X-Models have the viewfinder in the corner of he camera, which is way better.
Other then than the bad placement of the EVF, what is the difference?
And do not get me wrong. I love the Fuji X-Cameras. They are very well designed and work like a charm. Just do not see the excitement of bad placement of the EVF and why to create a new camera family? If they want to increase sales, work on cost down of the wonderful X-Gestalt.
i look with my left eye through the viewfinder, so would need it to be at the right side, therefore i don't really care if it is in the center or right or left.
I want to see it "naked" without any additional battery-grip or hand strap.
Also the black background is hiding too much of its beauty or it tries to hide its flaws?
