Zeiss Otus obviously. A few of the others are very good, but this one is stunning, amazing, superb.

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1201 comments in total)
In reply to:

Riezer: As far is I can see GX7 is slightly better than Oly P5 and Sony Nex-6 in both raw and jpeg (I checked 200, 1600 and 3200 ISO).
Canon 5dIII is much better from ISO 1600 up. Very impressive Panasonic. If the price drops 30% or more I'm interested. I would first like to see the EVF in action, though.

Btw: does anyone know which lenses were used?

I like the new studio scene, but I must say I miss the globe that was on the old one. That item was the best piece to compare differences.

I don't see much difference either. Just a slight advantage for the GX7 you can see this on the banknote. The smaller text is easier to read on the GX7. Also, the others seem to have a hazy cast on them, maybe the GX7 is sharper for the lack of AA filter...

On Nokia's 41MP Lumia 1020 looks impressive post (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just another Canon shooter: Count me not impressed. Even the 5mp images, zoomed 100% do not look so great but overall, too bluish, exposure is off, etc. Samsung and Apple phones take better photos.

No offense, but look again. The Nokia is MUCH better than the others. Check the print/etch, the money, the cotton balls. It's in another league!
I'd like to see it compared to cameras like the Panny LX7.

Riezer: @Jimmy jang Boo:
not in raw, there the sony is humilliated by the pentax

No they use noise reduction only above 1600 iso (look at the noise charts).
Pentax customized that sensor (optical low pass filter and color filter array) to perform better and they did a good job. I think they learned it when they used Samsung sensors before, trying to catch up with the rest on image quality.

In reply to:

Riezer: Horrible IQ at higher ISO's, mediocre at low ISO's. What's wrong with Sony lately? They should abandon SLT technology...

I've been looking at sample images of the a99 and the review of the a77. Maybe I shouldn't have said horrible IQ, but compared to ALL other manufacurers Sony is doing bad in IQ. The noise is worse in every ISO level, exponentionally worse in higher ISO's.

ISO 1600 is virtually unusable for A-77 and not for: Pentax K-5, Oly E-M5, Nikon D7000, Canon 7D, Fuji X-PRO1, etc.

Since then I looked into NEX series and NEX7 is also bad in IQ, worse than anyone else except A-77. SO it itsn't just SLT, it's all SONY camera's and SLT ones are worst.

I don't understand why. The other manufacturers use Sony sensors in their models. Sony is doing worse with the same sensors. For example check the noise in the NEX 5N vs K-5, X-PRO1 and D-7000. You just can't print larger than A4 size with the NEX 5N at higher than ISO 800. Fuji is the clear winner here, btw.

I usually buy Sony products, but there's no way I'll buy their camera's anytime soon. Sony fans please open up your eyes.
