Amazing how people can grasp at the tiniest tiniest differences only slightly visible at 100% scale and then pretend it's going to make a huge difference in the photographs they get in real life.

clauderobidoux: Hello everyone! This comment might seem a little out of context but I am posting it here because this camera looks interesting to me and I'll explain why, and would love to have some advice from you guys. I just sold my DSLR gear, D610, 14-24, 50 prime and 70-200 f/2.8 VR II. Now the main reason may seem strange but here it is: DUST !! I just couldn't stand it anymore, it seemed to be ruining my fun of doing photography. Basically it was at the point that I would miss photo opps because I was scared of switching lens outside. I got my camera cleaned by Nikon, when I downloaded my latest pictures I counted over 60 dust spots. The other reason is weight while hiking. I am ready to buy something new but I'm scared about that dust problem that I've had with this one, and my previous 30D, 40D and 5D II. Does anyone have a good DSLR or mirrorless to suggest that is better regarding this problem? Or should I be looking into something like this Sony or the new DL's. Any suggestions? Thank you

Olympus has the best anti-dust system.

"1.7X oversampled, full pixel readout (without binning)"
I'd like to understand what that means; any hints or tips?

Amazing how many people are complaining about it for some reason or another. If you don't like it, there are plenty other smartphones on the market.

York PA: couldn't find the discounted price DxO FilmPack 5 ELITE Edition: $64/£49 (instead of $129/£99) on the web site.

https://shop.dxo.com/us/photo-software/dxo-filmpack shows 23% off; the 50% off that was reported must have been a typo.

Great. For what remains of dark corners, you need to finetune the Vignetting setting. In difficult cases this can be different for each image.

To be honest this residual vignetting correction is in my opinion the one area in which DxO OP10 is a bit weak.

"Activating Distortion (only Manual correction is available)"

That doesn't sound right. There should be an option "Auto with DxO Optics Module" and that's what you want to use. Could it be you didn't download your camera profile?

Check in the menu at the top under DxO Optics Modules, to see if the G5X profile is installed (there should be two, one for JPG, one for RAW). If it is, and you don't get the option to auto-correct the distortion, then definitely something is wrong.

You didn't really answer my question. ;-)

The GX cameras at their wide angle setting give optically a fairly fish-eye like image, that is corrected in software to a rectilinear image. My G1XII does this too. DxO can be set to display the image with or without this software correction applied - a dramatic difference at wide angle.

"23 elements (in seven moving groups), seven of which are made from glass with anomalous partial dispersion"

I have zero interest in owning this lens, but I have to admire the skill that went into designing and producing it.

Have you activated distortion correction and vignetting correction?

Thanks for the heads up. Feels like OP loads a bit faster than previously, let's hope that impression remains.

nickonline: Really appreciate this post, because it makes any desire I have for the Q go right out the window - I really just dislike the 28mm look. Totally a personal preference, it's just that the wide angle DoF is too unnatural for my eyes.

Switch the viewfinder to a 35mm or 50mm setting if you like that better.

Thanks; no problem at all if its other images.

Thanks for clarifying that, Carey. I'm curious what DxO's Prime noise reduction would give as a result (scheduled to be supported sometime this month). Will the above RAW files become available for download eventually?

So do you use the electronic shutter all the time then? Or avoid certain shutter speeds? Or what's the trick?
