joe6pack: The M43 sensor is 17.3mm x 13.0mm. Now they come up with a 21mm x 12mm. 17.3mm -> 21mm is a significant difference to me. It means many existing lens will be showing vignetting. Am I missing something here?

If this camera is gaining popularity. It could also mean that future M43 lens will be bigger to accommodate the wider sensor, covering 21mm x 13mm. That may not be such a good news for M43.

I think you are assuming they always cut it close with the image circle. As with the nikon 35mm f1.8G, lenses sometimes cast a much larger circle than needed. If its an issue, it will only be with a handful of lenses (If any).

Mssimo: Go Pro does a much better job with marketing. You just want to buy the camera because of the footage, excitement and emotion in the videos. This Panasonic camera is much better but they already started on the wrong foot by making these boring videos of people doing boring stuff around SF.

Agree with MGBLK. GO Pro Hero 3 also had terrible firmware and battery issues. It was a horrible product but im sure it sold more than any other (action) camera on the market. Panasonic seems to be good value (lots of features) and it includes a LCD. Would be nice if you could change out the camera module depending what you are doing.

Rod McD: Looks like an interesting lens. Some of the posts below are amazing. It was announced today, not one has been sold and no-one has seen an image from it. Surely critics and potential buyers alike should wait until we see what the lens's IQ and characteristics look like before passing judgement?

They do make at least one crap lens (or maybe all made for Tmount) Samyang 650-1300mm MC IF f/8-16 and the 500&800mm mirror lens but all the DSLR mount lenses are very good and the best value on the market.

The biggest issue is software. Only if they could get third parties to jump in the raw processing.

Mssimo: Not a huge deal but recording 4K will crop your image by a factor of 1.2X. This will achieve a perfect 1:1 pixel/resolution ratio with no need for line skipping or scaling of video size.

Actual crop calculations:
Stills horizontal resolution - 4608
Cinema 4K horizontal resolution - 4096
4K horizontal resolution - 3840

Crop for 4k video is:

Cinema 4K - 1.125x
4K - 1.2x

The Photo Ninja: Tech question: after reading the specs, it seems like 1080p will offer higher resolution (i.e. high bitrate). So if the ultimate goal is to output to 1080p. Are you better to shoot 4K so you can crop or just shoot 1080p at 200Mbps?

4k will require a slight crop (1.25x) in order to get 1:1 pixel to resolution ratio.

pfzt: can somebody please explain to me how the pancake zoom works? i'm not familiar with those kind of lenses. thx.

They work like compact cameras. You turn on the camera, it expands...You turn off and it retracts.

qwertyasdf: This lens is looooooooooong overdue for the big brands.
Glad that the smaller guy is fulfilling my needs!

Please also make one for M43, not that i will buy it, but many others will!

Canon and nikon seem to have given up on APC primes.

mpgxsvcd: I want a native m4/3s version of this lens. I don't want an APS-C sized lens.

Get a speed booster and it will become a 7.1mm f2.0 (or 14.2mm on FF camera)
