Sergey Borachev: What's the point of a shiny metal lens with fancy focus ring and high quality looks (and price) when its performance is just adequate? This lens should have been made cheap in plastic like the 45mm, if at all (since there is another olympus 17mm lens that does not impress already). And there is also a good Panasonic 20mm. So, why bother? Any wonder why this lens is such a disappointment to most? 35mm equiv is the most essential lens, the lens that most would pick is they can only have one single prime. Yet, with all the lenses already in its range, Olympus chose to release another somewhat better 17mm but expensive lens after the failure in the earlier version. You excited by this lens?
Why do you say that? This lens makes a good accessories hanging on your neck!! Who cares about muddy rendering?
I'm amazed at these slow f/5.8 or even f/6.7 lenses. What's the point using small sensor then? These things are mediocre at best, too.
I thought one of the benefits of smaller sensor is smaller image circle thus lenses can be made compact while maintaining similar f/stops. If there are so many f/4-5.6 FF lenses with similar focal length, why does Oly have to make it f/4.8-6.7?? It's not cheap, too.
Another battery sucker...perhaps Samsung engineers now know color better than before? I tried NX1000 and NX20, JPG ooc sucks. I also found many Samsung devices with AMOLED has yellowish color, far from accurate. I guess Samsung only knows how to combine so many features into a single device and that's it.
I don't know if Canon is in trouble or not, but at least there's proof that 6D exists... can't wait to try one
ulfie: Good maybe even very good IQ but not any better than my $140 Oly E-PL1 body with 20/1.7 Panny lens. Really!
yes for the price it's not that spectacular, but it still has a good 16MP APS Sony sensor... NO way your EPL1 could compete in any way. DR, noise, whatever... although the 20/1.7 panny is sharp...
gl2k: Perky price.Nikon DX 35mm f1.8 and FX 50mm f1.8 are about €170
It should be cheaper than $500, still.
KonstantinosK: For the existing K5 users, the new duo doesn't look much of a temptation for an upgrade, unless of course money is no object. For those that are new to the DSLR and want the best in the APS-C class, they are serious candidates among its peers. The 7D after all these years received only a good firmware upgrade recently and the D7000 until now remains practically the same as ever.
K5 series are excellent cameras - but with 7D and D7000, you have MANY excellent lenses to choose from...
Let's see if the QC improves with the new Global vision thing...
Nikon just wants to make extra bucks selling the lame WiFi module as an option. I hate the way it attaches. It should have been built in already!
Mike99999: It seems that this D5200 might have a new 24mp (Sony) sensor, different from the D3200.
If this is true, this might be the first appearance of the APS-C sized Sony sensor with the same tech as the OM-D sensor. If this is true, the performance of this camera is going to be off the charts.
Why is the 24-70/4 IS much more expensive than 24-105/4 IS? The new zoom better be as good as the best primes! But then it's still f/4...
finally, better than never Nikon!
I expected more 'bite' from a $2800 fixed lens camera. Seems like strong NR here, if not AA filter. The lens has excellent CA performance.
Samsung... they know how to make a gadget with a pile of features... but that's it, just gadget. My Galaxy Note with its yellowish display and bad ergonomics is a proof to that...LOL
If compared to 5D2, D600 looks softer - BUT D600 has excellent high ISO!
Phileas Fogg: Those here who troll to bash Leica have likely never shot a Leica camera. Many probably do not know how to shoot photography other than "P" for perfect mode anyways. They likely will never be able to afford one as they fail to grasp the value of what decades of Leica quality and manufacturing have brought.
The bashers only see what Leica does not give you as compared to the more typical and often gimmick loaded DSLR's or other digital cameras. The absence of some of these things and gimmicks is what makes a Leica endearing to true photographic shooters.
These bashers have likely never shot a true rangefinder let alone a Leica be it a 35mm film body or a digital. They are folks that would not understand the value of prestige and what superlative manufacturing quality brings.
No I do not own a Leica never have shot one but if I had the disposable cash at hand to buy a Leica M series I would and both a film body as well as the digital one here.
LOL no need for that...
Even worse, the bashers never got to see the results or what the M9 and leica lenses can do. Sure high iso is not as good as CMOS, but at base iso, nothing is even close.
JEROME NOLAS: I don't have Leica and probably never have one, but still don't understand all that complaints...there are million things on this planet that are million times more expensive...if you complain it's not for you, if you have money to spend I am sure you love it!
It's basically an M9, but funnily enough, just put on a 'cheap' 28 Elmarit, and no DSLR system in the market could even match the image quality at low ISO. Sure the price is still too high but it has a good sensor.
