@yabokkie - good thing I don't care about m4/3...

The trolls only know and use smaller-than-APS sensor...:)

This is why Leica can't make enough M 240, too busy making fashion statements...

yslee1: How is it possible that the Tamron 17-50 VC and non-VC ended up with the same score? I have used both personally (albeit Nikon mount), shooting both real-world images and brick walls, and the VC version is distinctly inferior. I can't believe there will not be a difference on the denser 18MP sensor.

I also have both 17-50 VC and non VC - on my 650D, it's clear the non-VC is much better since wide open. It tells more about the so-called review :)

WACONimages: Most Micro Four Thirds standaard lenses are pretty sharp and decent quality given their price! Why it seems so hard for Nikon/Canon to produce fair priced, but still nice quality standard kit-lenses?

I've been since my first compact camera a Canon guy. Just happens so. Compacts, pro-dslr ect. Invest a lot of money in that. Lately I'm more and more surprised by MFT, especially their lenses.

And what is the point! of having lenses with a certain max aperture!, if you have to stop them down by one or two stops to get decent quality????

It seems mirrorless is a somehow better at max aperture. Hear good things also about the Nikon 1 system in this respect.

the only m4/3 kit standard lens that I know good is the Panny 14-45... besides, there are much more options for the DSLR users other than the kit lenses.

Cameron R Hood: Wow...yeah Pentax invented the pancake 40mm like 50 years ago, and they've had a modern autofocus one out for 8-9 years that is stunning, plus they reintroduced it with the K01, redesigned by Marc Newsome, but by all means review the Canon copy...

:>(

You haven't reviewed a Pentax lens in 4 years, and you completely missed the mark on the last one you DID review (the legendary 15mm Limited).

Cameron

So, even though you think DA 40 is stunning, if DPR hasn't reviewed it you're less confident using the lens?

Peiasdf: "The E-PM2 and E-PL5 borrow the Olympus OM-D E-M5's proven 16MP CMOS sensor, a class-leader in image quality"
What class is that? m4/3? That's a class of two. EVIL/mirrorless? It is better than Fuji and NEX?

Why this review reads like company press release with the overuse of hyperboles?

Class leader in m4/3 class ;)

The Zeiss is better, I'm sure - at more than twice the price of Canon but I prefer the one that I can focus easily ;)

In reply to:

jhinkey: Sigma is rumored to have the 135/1.8 sometime this year AND Nikon has a patent on a 135/1.8 IF AFS VR and likely will come out with this lens in order to compete. So it's good that we'll all have some choices in the fast 135/2 department somewhat soon.

The Zeiss 135/2 certainly looks outstanding and the lack of AF does not bother me for what I do - outstanding wide open performance across the entire frame is what I like to see (just like the 100/2 MP).

@Petka - 135 DC is not bad, but it's a dated design too. It's more expensive than the Canon but has much more
CA and so-so sharpness wideopen

rhlpetrus: I just don't get how anyone would get a camera that doesn't produce a decent RAW conversion from the typical software. Any of the current competitors like the Canon G15, the Oly or the Nikon P7700 produce much better results.

Apparently this cameras is more about wow factor rather than IQ - which is important in 2013...

REally? consistent image? Funny, DPR's own raw and jpg comparison shows Canon G15, XZ2 being much more detailed at low iso...It's time the reviewer take a look at their own raw comparison LOL

D7100 is said to have no AA filter, but why is it still softer than NEX-7 in the studio comparison? NEX-7 studio comparison shows better micro contrast too. Is it due to lenses used?

yabokkie: half a century ago, the Japanese beat the hell out of "unbeatable" Germans and drove them out of the market.

I would like to continue to use high quality Japanese equipment but it's not bad someone else can beat them on quality, at least cost-performance for the moment.

@yabokkie; if you ever tried Leica lenses, you'll know the German optics beat the cr@p out of the Japanese lenses... not to mention Zeiss, Schneider... their market share is small because of the higher price - for a good reason!

kewlguy: I got my Canon 24 TSE for $1700, this Samyang is not cheap either. The only aberration on 24 TSE L is severe coma in the corners (unshifted) - hopefully the Samyang's better corrected in this regard (while on par in other parameters).

Nope, mine is the TSE II.

For the price it should be much better than the mediocre 70-300 VR!
