I really like that image. Who cares about a bit of purple fringing?
Cameron R Hood: What a shame; they make GREAT stuff. Been a big fan since the film days.
Hi I bought one of their small LED panel lights just the other day.
This looks like a very interesting offering indeed. Its a bit big for my liking personally, but holds the promise of being a great photographic tool.
However you look at it there are some very nice images there. And I enjoyed looking at them.
Yes, liked those very much. Perhaps I should get a bit more creative myself!

I thought some of those images were lovely, and he made a lot of sense to me.
Well done him!
That is a great project. Very exciting. Well done them!
piratejabez: I like everything I've seen about this camera. Love the optional grip and strap. Can't wait to see first-hand performance reports. Way to go, Fuji!
I am an m4/3 guy, but I do like the look of this Fuji and I think they may well have hit the sweet spot with this. I agree that APS-C sensor is good enough for the vast majority, as are the latest m4/3. FF is the dead end really. Who really needs it? You can get thin enough DOF on both APS-C and m4/3 with the right lenses.
And yes I do like the A7. Looks like a nice camera and will suit some for sure.
Identity: I'm sure this is a lovely lens, but I was expecting shallower DOF in an F/1.2 lens. For me, APS-C is still the best balance of size, image quality, cost, and DOF control.
Hi, you could not pay me to lug a D800 and equivlent glass around when I could use a much smaller m43 and this lens and get results that are good enough for me.
If I felt I needed this lens and could afford to buy it then why not? Photography is a hobby for me, and over the number of years I would likely use the lens it is not unreasonably expensive.
I could drive a Toyota, but I like my Porsche.
This is great news. A massive timesaver for me.
I think the black version looks quite nice. I was never much taken with the "modern" Nikon designs. Whatever you say it is always preferable to use a tool you like. I like my EM-5 and can overlook the ergonomic issues.
larrytusaz: Why do most articles have you click each picture to read each item on the list? Why not make it one long page so you can click it once & just read, not "next, next, next, next, next, next, nex....."
I agree, ditch this one. All on 1 or 2 pages for this.
I never really thought about this type of photography (panoramas) before reading this article. They always seemed like too much effort. I also did not want an Iphone 5S, but now I am seriously interested!
I am not interested in mobile phones so would not have seen this article on the connect site. But I am interested in photography so am pleased to find it here.
Thank you for posting it.
This is a very interesting camera, and 20m is enough for most underwater photographic purposes. I would dive with it a bit deeper than 20m but would not operate any buttons below 20m. In fact the buttons may depress by themselves at 30m because of the water pressure.
It's a shame it does not support Olympus cameras. I would love remote control for my EM-5. Yes it seems expensive!
I have also just tried one. If it had the same video modes as the LX7 I would have bought it.
The ability to control it from a smartphone is super cool though. Truly useful and works like magic!
I am pleased you reviewed this lens, and I like the fact that the site looks at things athat are a little of the beaten track. It's more interesting like that IMHO.
All the best!
Dennis: Why not look at it in this way; Panasonic, a well-known camera manufacturer, is selling cameras under its own brand as well as branded limited editions like G-Star/Leica, Paul Smith/Leica, other fashion brands...
Interestingly, my browser suggested "d'luxe" when when I typed "dlux" - kind of underlines the nature of this "Frankenstein" camera... ;-)
That is a very good point. The LX range are well made indeed.
I think this is a fun idea actually.
