It's strange for me that there are users who could be happy with new very slow zoom.
This zoom is pure commercial product, firstly. And only then - it's photo tool.
alex_shin: This is what I was waiting for! Sounds like a great kit lens for my future K-3.My 16-45 is great, but I got tired of its very limited tele range.We'll see how the tests turn out. And, of course, the price shall go down, which it will, especially in a kit.
DC motor is not new, it's the same SDM with simpler gear.
We're sorry, but this video is not available in your region due to right restrictions.
Paul Rumohr: OK... what exactly happened here? These samples were soft, and now they're all sharpened up?
I saw those originals. They were NOT awesome.
What is happening here? Somehow history is getting changed here, because those crappy original samples have mysteriously disappeared.
Am I the only one here taking crazy pills?
I can use Lightroom, Photoshop, Magic Sharp, Slice Like a Ninja, or Cut Like a Razor Blade filters to help out any image to make it "look" sharper.
But you're not taking $900 bucks out of me for a mediocre lens where I have to do this to every image I take!
No. Me too.
BozillaNZ: ePhotoZine has published more photos, the first one has raw:http://www.ephotozine.com/article/panasonic-lumix-dmc-lx100-sample-photos-26312
And I've downloaded the P1050403.RW2, converted to CR2 using my project CR2Pana, and developed it using Canon RAW Image Task, the result is here:
The color and sharpness is very good! It's funny that Canon's software helped this camera to unleash it's potential but neverless it's doable and I will finish the CR2Pana's LX100 support by the time it's on the market!
not bad...but hard to say that it's very good.
JPEG is nothing special. From bad till not bad. It's more interesting to see pictures converted from RAW.
Expat Nomad: Sadly not available for the original 645d.
Still, this is a welcome development. I'm hoping this will also be somehow rolled out to the K-3.
Maybe, 645D software couldn't work with Image Transmitter?
ogl: Fuji start to make big lenses...It's a pity.
It's ala digital rangfinder camera's system. Too big lenses for mirrorless cameras.

Strong move. The camera is full of features.
There are two problems: no 60 fps at FHD and low bitrate. As for price - I think it will be lower rather soon.
RichRMA: Body looks like Olympus's "Tough" P&S cameras.

Yes. Very interesing photo. :) It seems to me this photos are made with love, with soul. British photos are photos and it's all. So less emotions. :) It doesn't mean that it's bad....But I prefer more emotional photos of birds and animals.
What about you? We discuss photos. You comments are inappropriate.
Syria and Ukraine are good for CIA's hunting.
It's common heron's pullus who fell into swamp in time of hurricane.
I mean this photos are more positive than British.

BobYIL: Smallest of the MF format; only 30 x 45mm, a little larger than the FF... Only 37.5MP, a little more than the D800 series 36MP... A phased out CCD sensor to turn obsolete in couple of years in the world of MF-CMOS. Hopefully they can sell this "only 100 units" of limited edition. (BTW, would it differ much if the new lens was offered for $4K?)
No any sense for Sony to go the new market. Rather special and narrow. It's simplier to sell sensors to leaders of MF.Medium format mirrorless - too big sensor. Need very powerfull battery. No mirror = it effects to IQ. And it's no good for work.
Pentax 645Z has video mode already and LV.
