  • Based on today's hand's on article, it would appear that the Leica touch interface has some issues, to put it politely. Certainly far from "the only camera maker that successfully integrated a...

  • @ Robert Spanjaard: the F-number refers to the diameter of the lens' aperture as defined by the focal length divided by a numerical factor. It directly defines the amount of light which is able to...

  • @ Erik Magnuson: my apologies about the M43 lens f-stop error. You are right. Cheers.

  • @igor_s: It says right inside the article that diffraction is a function of the physical aperture size and not the equivalent aperture number, so the crop sensor camera does not have an advantage...

  • @Gstadter:

    This is not true. Compare the noise levels of a 16mp APS or 12mp M43 sensor to a 24mp full frame sensor. All of these have the same pixel size. You'll find that the full frame sensor...

  • @ Just a Photographer:

    Did you even read the article?

  • The point is that the full frame Sony system is supposed to be significantly better than the M43 system in terms of equivalent aperture. Look at the values you calculated. Yes they look pretty good...

  • Actually, M43 has no advantage in deep DOF. Full frame can just stop down two stops to reach exactly the same DOF and noise level as M43. Think about it...

  • Gstadter,

    You are correct. If you are willing to accept half resolution, then the image from your M43 camera will be no noisier than that from a full frame camera on a per-pixel basis. Remember...

  • You can either double the shutter speed or double the ISO, not both.

  • I think not. More likely the masses of misinformed F1.4=F1.4=F1.4 troglodytes will be shamed into withering in their holes and not make an appearance.

  • I think you mean to say that the Panasonic 42.5 (you typed 32) is over priced. You are absolutely correct. The cost of that lens is part of the reason I changed systems to Fuji. After two years of...

  • In your thought experiment, the unblocked half of the sensor would have the same noise level as before; however, you would only be recording half of the scene in front of the camera. If you...

  • @HowaboutRAW:

    If you think good design is predicated on choosing one software over another, then you are not a good designer. Your argument reads like that of a first year student.

  • AutoCAD for windows is an excellent software for architecture. As disappointed as you may be to hear this: most of the buildings we build as still boxes. Until we have gotten around the unfortunate...

  • HowaboutRAW:

    Nobody is denying the fact that, as you say, Leica is capable of producing good lenses when they wish to expend the effort. You are missing the point though: THIS Leica lens clearly...

  • @HowaboutRAW:

    Hyperbole much? Note to your highness: AutoCAD for windows, Hershey chocolate, and Starbucks coffee are just fine for us plebs and certainly do not "suck". They are everyday products...

  • Right, except Rolls Royce's are actually better cars than Skodas from the perspectives of engineering and features. Maybe its extravagant cost is not linearly proportional to the degree to which it...
