Can it make a love too?

Any legacy macro lens in the same FL range will do the same job for the fraction of the price - my Sigma 2.8/90 macro for instance.

This is a perfect lens tight interiors and for me. Unfortunately, I can't afford this beauty, so all my hopes are to raise some money within my friends and family.
BTW, if I did not miss something, this is a rectilinear lens, is not it?

Another indistinguishable face in crowd, one of many clones. Read it and forget it.

Read carefully where you post your opinion(s)

Sean, you seem to do not understand the difference between news article and review.

Phathom: Not every camera is affected. I think they learned from the D600 fiasco and are trying to get out in front of this problem. As I D750 owner, I love my camera and have had no issues. This doesn't make me lose faith in Nikon, as some have suggested. Now, if they failed to address the issue and tried to sweep it under the rug, then we'd have issues. The truth is that in today's world technology is so advanced that to do adequate testing would take a lot longer than most consumers are willing to wait. We want our products right now, and if they can't keep up someone else will. I think recalls on defects like this will become increasingly more common. What will help you tell a good company from a bad company is how they handle the defect.

The truth is that I personally do not mind to wait longer in order to get quality product. I do not want free service, I want "get it and forget it"

Nikon cut off on testing in hurry to release camera. Now company pays the price. Ironically, this cameras has a highest grade from DPR

:)

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1454 comments in total)

For camera collectors, it may be a good idea to have different brand/sensors size systems, keep them in curio, and lecture family members and unlucky friends about light gathering.

For all others - do your search and try in the brick store the system you need (not system you want). If system meets your expectations, buy into it and do not look around.

If you do not know what system do you need, do not buy at all because you do not need it.

If you shoot professionally, you do not need advice because you know perfectly what system(s) do you need.

This camera does not worth to read review. Just check price tag with kit lens and without. Nothing more to say.

s_grins: Actually, bringing GH4k to this comparison is a big achievement for Panasonic .
On other hand, it is puzzle for me why DPR decided to compare GH4K and SONY A7s. Why not to compare GH4K to Oly E-M1?

You have a great knowledge! So explain to me why GH4 could not be compared to E-M1 instead of SONY A7s - in terms of stills of course.

Both GH4K and E-M1 cameras do stills, do not they

I do not like the idea of such a comparison. Without any review it is clear that SONY 7s has advantage in noise/low light performance, but in regards of practical video taking GH4 is the winner.

I'm more interested in analysis of GH4 DFD AF focusing that is a really something special and unique.

For me: x6 zoom and weight that does not exceed 600g.

I'd rather want a 1" sensor camera with lesser zoom range - 24-200, but not that heavy. 600g is a max. for me
