malabito: M43 are great cameras with beautiful lenses, but I don't understand why will someone will pay so much money for a lens like this, which is as big as a apsc or even full frame equivalent lens, (yes maybe not light gathering, but push the iso and you will get as much light and same results). I don't see the need for it. I used to have an em5, great under good light conditions, but as soon as it got dark, it sucked. I decided to buy a Voigtlander .95 and it was a waste of time, and money, camera was as big as a nikon 610/DF with a 35mm 2.0 and you can obtain much better results with it. So why buy these huge lenses for m43, when for a much comfortable size you can get better results with a full frame? And that's taking out the Sony a7 system, which will make the m43 even more silly with one of these lenses...

@quartertodoom, fanboy? Most of my cameras are and have been manual focus, that's not much of any issue, the problem for me was how uncomfortable and not practical was to carry the em5 plus Voigtlander and was not even half the quality of the DF plus 35mm 2.0 or A7 plus loxia.

Em5 with the 12mm 2.0 or 25mm 1.4 was a joy to carry and use but with those huge lenses made absolutely no reason.

@string Not making up any facts. I had the DF and also had an em5 with one of those voigtlanders 0.95 lenses. With the Voigtlander, the em5 was disproportionate, uncomfortable to carry, heavy, and had only manual focus.

@chaitanya by the way, I am a Leica user. But truly believe Leicas are not for Profesionals, it's a wonderful camera use mainly by people who like photography, (fun and user experience) or by people with big pockets, pros getting payed will probably rather use a more reliable system that costs less, why increase the cost with a Leica if a nikon, canon brings same or better results for less money, it's simple mathematics.

@chaitanya that makes complete sense, but probably he was using that camera because he likes Leica or as anyone else will be using a Leica m, he was not using it because it was better, he was using it because he like it, and for the tough images to get he was still using the nikons and canons :)

No way these are pros, with the exception of maybe one or two guys, which lenses? You are telling me the SL has better focusing ? Those were probably people who payed 500 Iss entrances and took their nice point and shoot with them...

Yes I also don't believe this. With what lenses? And the focusing speed as fast as Nikon and canon? No way.... It's full contrast detection.

Pros? Which pros? It's a wonderful camera, but mainly used by people who like gadgets and can afford it :)

Boss of Sony: How do people carry these cameras around all day without getting annoyed? Do you have massive arm muscles? Don't you get sore shoulders from holding up heavy cameras/lenses? I can well understand my pro friend's move to APS-C, although I find APS-C even too heavy for me.

@Azathothh ???

@Boss of Sony, I couldnt agree more with your last comment. For those who dont shoot professionally, photography is about fun, or at least to most in that situation. Mirrorless, m43, high end compacts.... all of these cameras are actually more fun to use, produce good results, and can be carry around easier. I dont understand how poeple just shooting around the house, or family vacations, rather carry a Nikon D4 with a 24-70mm. It makes no sense to me, since the outcome of the images is the same with the Super Canon / Nikon than with the sony rx100. I just sold my last DSLR, mainly because of that. Not shooting profesional, (only a few times a year), for those occasions I can rent, and even so, sometimes i can still use my current equipment.

Yep cameras are tools, and as such you have different tools for different jobs. People complain about the size, but is like complaining about the size of a SUV when you need to move stuff around and rather do it with a bicycle. If you think its to heavy, just get a mirrorles or m43, but dont expect those cameras to fulfill the jobs this one is meant to do...

What cameras are you using? Sony? If so, I can imagine you are just using a couple of primes, cause if you add there pro lens line, plus 6 batteries,you are already at similar weight.

Yes nobody is going to carry this camera for shooting cats and flowers, the Sonys work perfect for that :)

@Valeriu 64, no harm done, i am not that religious but do respect your point of view. You are from Romania? I moved a few months ago to Bucharest, its a wonderful but chaotic city :) Romania has so many beautiful places, its been a surprise for me discovering, since you never hear from them anywhere else. I dont know why they are no advertise, is really really beautiful.

Don Sata: Nice review but is it still relevant two years late?

@FantasticMrFox, my bad :) I meant best all around camera :). Yes the Pentax K1 does look promising. I just sold all my nikon equipment, to stay with mirrorles, but that doesn't mean i wouldn't go back to a dslr. Pentax was my first dslr, a k10D, could bring me again to dslrs :)
