In reply to:

msusic: Note 2 is a fantastic smartphone.
The first one I'm really happy with.

Screen is gorgeous, it's extremely fast and it's bettery lasts very long (for a smartphone).

It lasts depending on how heavily I'm using it, but generally a lot longer than smartphones I had before (iphone 3G, HTC Desire and Samsung Note 1).

It last me 2-3 days of heavy use, about 7-8h screen on time and 1-2hrs talk/day + 2hrs browsing/day, using GPS with Endomondo etc...

This is the same thing as XZ-2, no?

There's no point in D600, considering the price difference and what you're (not) getting in return, 500-600€ difference for the D800 is well worth it.

Only good thing about D600 is it's sensor, it's otherwise outclassed by cameras half it's price in terms of build quality, autofocus and specifications.

Good, this means Olympus PDAF m43 is on the way and that's interesting, not this Sony :)

Wow, nice guide.
I'm very impressed by the level of customization available.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 low light high ISO sample series article (283 comments in total)
In reply to:

msusic: Hmmm.. samples look pretty great.

What I don't get is why exposure is so different compared to your 5Dmk3 test?

For example:

5D3 ISO200
6s
f/11

E-M5 ISO200
5/8s (so bit over half a second)
f/6.3 (so 1 2/3 EV more light than Canon)

However, the exposure on the canon is about 10x as long, yet if one was to stop the E-M5 down to f11, they would only require 2s exposure).

Canon shots are clearly more exposed which helps with the noise levels.

Hmmmm....

But how these samples and test hold any weight then?
Canon shots are more exposed too which is good for hiding noise.

Best mirrorless camera by a long shot.

It really makes no sense to buy DSLRs anymore unless one needs professional super tele lenses and continous autofocus (birding enthusiasts, sports shooter etc).

With m43 you can pretty much have 5-10x lighter bag than using a decent semi-pro or a pro dslr.
Not to mention it's generally quite a lot cheaper. :)

How is this camera revolutionary?
Current samples don't really look much better than what's already on the market (if any) and the camera is quite big and heavy considering it's mirrorless.

It's AF is nothing to brag about either and there are no wider lenses than now pretty conservative 27(28)mm equivalent.

It would've been nicer if entire camera was in focus and not just the front lens element.

Looks good at the first glance, but you can see pretty heavy NR (look at the mouse and it's fur which is smeared and you can't make out it's texture).

In reply to:

RedFox88: This is essentially a 24mm f/3.2 lens in terms of FOV and depth of field. Goes to show you can have really fast & shallow DOF glass on 4/3 like a 24mm f/1.4 camera for 35mm SLRs.

DoF is irrelevant, bokeh is much more important factor.

In reply to:

f_stops: love to see a shoot out between this and the Nex/1.8.

A fully compatible EOS>Nex adapter (come on conurus) will make life interesting (and lens choice incredible) for a Canon + Nex kit. I have an Nex 7 on order and not sure which gear I will slim down (5dII or M9).

Why, so you can have large mirrorless system with all the drawbacks of mirrorless and none of the advantages? :)

On Reviewed: Sony NEX-5N 16MP mirrorless camera article (195 comments in total)

I think one MAJOR negative point should be that Nex simply lacks lenses and upcoming lenses (which haven't been released yet) are quite big an unbecoming of a such small camera.

Nex currently only has a bad kit lens, bad pancake and a huge super zoom.

24mm Zeiss is going to be very big and awfully expensive, 50mm might be ok but it's still relatively big and focal lenght is not interesting at all while 30mm macro is too slow for a prime lens and quite short for a macro lens.

Too bad system cameras rely on lenses ;)

On Sony SLT-A77 studio comparison samples article (226 comments in total)
In reply to:

Carsten Saager: Interesting to see that even with the penalty of the translucent mirror the A77 wipes the floor with the APS-C competition - the 5dmkII only does a little bit better (thanks to its full-frame sensor)

Good job Sony! Curious what Canikon have up in their sleeves to counter that - though it won't last for long. In 5 years I'll find myself hard pressed to add to my Nikon gear if Sony can keep up this innovation speed (and in 10 years Canikon will become just nostalgia)

E-5 with just 12mp looks much better at pixel level which is to be expected, but it's funny how even 24mp doesn't give any real advantage in terms of detail - you just get a bigger and blurrier photo.

In reply to:

loewena: Would you think of calling a 45 mm lens on a full frame DSLR - a "portrait lens" ?? This is the same optics, just cropped. On the other hand you may like BIG noses ans small ears...

I can't believe people still haven't learned that focal lenght makes no difference - it's the framing and distance to subject.

45mm on 43rds gives approximately the same angle of view (diagonal) as 90mm on FF camera, but since the lens is shorter, it has more depth of field.

Otherwise, it's completely the same - shooting a portrait from 2m with 90mm + FF camera or 45mm + 43rds camera - the framing will be very similar.

*Olympus PEN E-P3 Body with MSC M. Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f2.8 Prime Lens
Estimated Street Price: $899.99

MSC, are you sure??!

Older 17mm lens doesn't have MSC designation - it this a typo, or did Olympus make new version of the 17mm?
