That 16-50mm seems to be something special!
Top notch optics!

"... promising full native angle of view for different lens standards including Super 35, MFT, and Super 16 via its proprietary Variable Scan Mapping tech."

Please translate this mumbo-jumbo, someone?

Mike FL: I'm looking for replacing my SRL for a while, and interested in EM1 and XT1. But there is only one possible problem; "Fujifilm, Olympus and Panasonic are doomed...".

http://www.digitalcameranews.co.uk/2013/12/30/fujifilm-olympus-and-panasonic-are-doomed-according-to-credit-suisse-analyst/

We will see, but no one could stop it from coming when it comes as we saw it from the past...

When it comes to business, who's flexing muscles here? Panasonic (the parenting company) is one of a few giants in that respect, and I think they DO recognize the future sales potential of their m43-lineup (why else invest in developing a highend product like the GH4 ??). Most improvements to m43 sensor technology can be implemented in FF, thus keeping a permanent advantage over m43, when it comes to ISO/resolution etc... -but size matters! This permanent advantage for the m43 will show, in the long run...
The wheel will turn again, regarding sales figures (as long as the m43 is fulfilling the needs of their potential buyers, of which I'm convinced).
When m43-technology matures into the 20-24 mpix range, things starts to happen ...

On P1010194 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (7 comments in total)

The photographer is confirming here:
The whole picture is in focus, from foreground to background.
This is terrible, Panasonic! The green colours are SMEARED as a finger-painting!

Under same conditions, a top-notch cameramobile would have done better?
It's plain ugly this, when viewed in 100%.

On G7X-ISO125-IMG_0050 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (6 comments in total)

Overexposure, 'blame' the photographer! :) :) :) Just a little bit overexposed skintones here. Seem to be using (most common) center-weighted metering here, thereby the all-to-wellknown overexposure kicks in:
The dark uniform is occupying MAIN part of the metering aerea. Then MOST cams would do exactly the same!
(an everlasting 'calibration logic' dilemma this)
Approx. -0.5 exposure compensation applied. and: Mission completed!
If exposing on 'auto', at least 99 out of 100 cams would do the same: Overexposing her skin.
The photographer still matters....

On G7X-ISO2000-IMG_0038 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Beeing underexposed (-1.00) AND ISO 2000 this is good stuff!
The noise in the blacks seems to disappear rather quickly, when zooming the original out to 50% (on a 15,6'' full HD LED monitor). Seems to be almost printable at that size.
Thanks to the photographer for putting this cam trough this kind of realistic testing. Some underexposure always does the trick; Revealing weaknesses in 'the noise department'. I think the G7 produces OK results here, and in my opinon the critics here, they simply demands too much from 'a pocket cam' regarding high ISO's..

Bokeh, yes! Noisewise I think ISO 800 is OK (precise exp.!) for decent quality prints sized 16'' x 12'' ?

Impressive. Backlit scenes can pose some problem it seems (see some other samples her), this one is superb!

Gochugogi: Kinzie Bunker at Fort Worden (Port Townsend WA)! This is one of my favorite places in the PacNW. Color looks a bit washed out.

Agree. Se the author's comment over.Just natural colours to my eyes.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

Comparison table, screen: NIKON D7100 has the better resolution somehow?
(1.228.800 dots, compared to the 7DII's 1.036.800 dots).
It does not correspond with the pixel count (RGB resolution), I realize, yes!
Explanation, anyone?

Looks really promising, the 7DII, but why NO 4K video??? -Running double DIGIC6 processors?
(I'll probably stick to my old 5D MkII)

Myguess: Avoiding "internal" competition with something soon to come "popping out" from the pipeline, FF probably ...

Noise removal at full play, yes, still makes it to the album with (literally) flying colours. Valuable stuff this camera, costly or not.

If one can produce let's say a decent, real photo-look 13' by 9' print from this, it's representing nothing less than a breakthrough for the superzoom concept as such!
Remember:
Making acceptable prints this size, regularly, from a superzoom 3200 ISO picture, has been 'declared' pure utopia for quite some time.

Seems to be a bit challenging lighting conditions, and some CA /flare can be observed. How about using a circular PL here?

MJ Jones: Strange juggies in the hair at full res and noise in the shadows of the face.

Probably a tiny bit oversharpened. BTW MJ Jones: You didn't happen to notice the sharpness of this lens? And the bokeh ?
-I can't help thinking of your comment as beeing at least let's say, a bit biased by some unknown reason? ;)

pedroboe100: Real men don't shoot super zooms.

Real men shoot both kinds! :) My dust-gathering FZ10 is still usable! Nostalgic: Such a thrill of starting off as a digital photographer with that cool thing! I have some really fine 11 by 8 prints from the FZ10, usually made from ISO 50 exposures though... :)
These days I'm still having fun shooting digital, beeing on a steep learning curve with my newest toy: A 5D MkII with only 5500 exp. on it, and a mint condition C. 24-70 2.8 (Version I). Great!
Still I think Panasonic has come up with something really special with the new FZ1000, for shure I will give this one a test-run.
Reaaly good superzoom cameras do have some unique qualities, but I think these must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Impressive! Sharpness, colours, tones, no vignetting, no fringing -one heck of a lens this!
Bokeh seems fine in some pics, just ok in others. Me want.
