So is the Panasonic 150 f2.8 dead? Killed by the 40-150?
As if the Nikon 1 system wasn't already sufficiently worthless. Good for Sony and Panasonic for fully killing it off.
Cheese. But I'm sure there's a prog rock album cover awaiting discovery somewhere in her collection.
Najinsky: So first I wake up inexplicably early this morning, and now it looks like my girlfriend has drugged my coffee.
I'm hallucinating that DPR have posted rumours and pictures of a camera they'll almost certainly have under NDA, if not today then a few days before it's release next week.
Are NDA's retroactive? Can you still sign them if you've done the D'd?
Can't wait for the drug to wear off and see what story I really posted this against.
Agreed. What's up with the rumor-mongering? We have dedicated sites for that.
kenw: 50*1.5 = 75. 50 *1.6 = 80. These are pretty useful portrait focal lengths, I don't understand the "no-mans land' comments about them. Sure, maybe 56 would hit the venerable "85" spot on...
Agree completely. This seems to be a hangup at dpreview. The notion that a focal length has no utility if it doesn't jibe with conservative notions of what constitutes "normal" or "portrait" is just odd.
This article is showing its age, particularly in references to mirrorless systems. The low-light gap is shrinking quickly.
BKK Street: As a very satisfied (thrilled actually) Panasonic G3 owner (with 20 1.7) I thought the Pen Mini would be significantly lighter than the G3. According to the respective Panasonic and Olympus websites, G3 is 9.31 oz w. battery and SD card and E-PM1 is 9.34 oz. And the G3 has a built in flash, EVF and tilt/swivel LCD touch screen. And a new generation sensor. All for about $200 more. It's well worth the price difference.
Thanks for posting about your surge in self esteem.Cognitive dissonance and buyer's remorse can indeed be painful. Glad you worked it out.
A companion piece for enthusiasts would be appreciated. So many people make forum posts along the lines of "best gear for trip to X..." Suggestions for those whose travels aren't entirely about the photography and who want to travel relatively light and inconspicuously would be appreciated.
Remember the good old days of lens reviews? Pre-Amazon?
