Interestingly, most of your impressions (negative and positive) are the same since the beginning of the HxD system...
I have shot a lot with an H3D-21, many years ago, and this looks just like a slightly upgraded one. Blads don't evolve much, at each new generation it's only 1 or 2 function added... that's a little sad, and considering the price I would like to see more innovation. There is range for that!
Yet I'm sure it's a wonderful camera and Phocus is IMHO the best PP software ever, I love it.

Far better than previous generation, but still a lot of moire in the video...
For a video usage, Sony or Canon are far from beaten.

On article Heavy hitter: Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM first shots (341 comments in total)

Why dropping the Zeiss name for high end? Is the license too expensive? Or is the GM range under the CZ range (between G and CZ)?

Also I wonder how this lens compares to the A-mount CZ 24-70...

On article Size matters: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G7 X (176 comments in total)

It sounds cute, a good alternative to the RX100 III...
But I will keep my G1X II, because I love it's unofficially-bouncing-flash so much.
I they could have included it in this G7X, I would have considered a switch...

My biggest complaint is about exposure. Why did they went for an individual exposure? It makes like a "bubble" picture!
With same exposure for all subsensors, they may be less DR but a far better looking result imho.
Then I also clearly see an optical resolution limit (don't know if it's the main lens or the sublenses), but I think this can be improved too...

cheenachatze: Why do they charge so much for this "Power Zoom" lens? Every $100 camera has "Power Zoom" lens. These small lenses require less material to make, and it's not like Panasonic has amazing manufacturing technologies that are light years ahead of Canon, Nikon etc., so why are they charging such prices for their lenses? Panasonic 20mm F1.7 retails as much as Canon 50mm F1.4. How do they justify that?

Development costs.
These lenses have whole new optical formulas, while Canon's 50mm have at least 50 years...
The "power zoom" is the only one on the market.
Panasonic is a real, serious lens manufacturer, don't understimate them.

GoCUBuffs: Looks like it lost image stabilization from gf3? Seemed to be a nice additional feature on the prime lenses that don't come w/ stabilization built in.

NO panasonic camera has in-camera stabilization.
It's always in the lens!

patchfree: Similar to Pana GX1 but GX1 has a smaller size, included the lens. So no real choice: GX1.

half? 4/3 sensor is 13mm high, APS-C is 15,7mm, just 20% more...

What's the advantage over SD? Larger capacity?
