ShatteredSky: I want that 150-600 for NX or m43. Please ...

Thanks for the info, but I would welcome a (scaled down) version to take advantage of the crop factor. Though even 600 and more light sounds also very good. Might try that at some point ...

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1270 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sirandar: Comparing the standard res Mark II images to the original OMD E5, they just don't look as sharp or crisp with the II. Am I missing something? Look at the green feathers...

Also, the addition of a articulating display is very welcome, but can you turn the display to face inwards when not using it? Since even with a screen protector the display tends to rub against stuff and take damage, turning it in would make shooting a much more carefree experience.

My old Pana FZ30 had this feature and I took advantage of it a lot as I tend to use the viewfinder.

Agreed, but as mentioned may be down to the lenses used.

On Hands-on with Samsung's new NX500 article (333 comments in total)

Is there perchance a possibility for a wifi/NFC external mic? And a macro with better stabilisation than the 60 mm please (I know, I am greedy).

On Samsung introduces NX500 with NX1's 28MP BSI sensor article (138 comments in total)

I made do without a viewfinder for about a year with the NX300. Never thought I would adapt to it, but it worked out quite nicely. I would still appreciate the addition of a viewfinder though ...

This: "Equally it would have been nice to gain a four-shot, 16MP mode that offered Foveon-like full color resolution images." Maybe we will see this in the future with a firmware update?

ShatteredSky: Plastic fantastic. Why everybody wants to fake anybody's face is beyond me ... cloning out a pimple is one thing. Smoothing over the entire facial landscape is another.

Every time I see an image dealing with (female) fashion I got to think: "Where the heck is all that meat gone?" If you would touch her there are only bones left, creepy. This also translates to fashion, in so far as it makes finding fitting stuff (that is not to tight) more difficult. Luckily for men this issue is not that pronounced.

Thanks for your votes. And also thanks to the host for allowing three entries. It is always very interesting what your own expectations are, and how a larger audience votes in the end.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (385 comments in total)
In reply to:

ShatteredSky: What if I want to use that tilting screen for non-selfie shots? Am I cool than? One of my gripes is that the LX100 does not come with a tilting screen ...

If you do not want to selfie, than just don't. Childishly easy ...

Did you read correctly? I never said I wanted to do any selfies. I do not normally like them at all (except for some very rare sentimental moments). But I DO like tilting screens.

Anyway, I could let my daughter take images of me, so technically they are not selfies anymore ;-)

On 20th Century Limited in the Macro - Toy Train or Model Train challenge (14 comments in total)

Agree with the post below, at first glance I thought this was a night shot. But then again, if this should be one of NYC Hudons it lacks the double front bogie.
Great shot!

In reply to:

BarnET: There was a entry-level mirrorless released in M43 2014
The Olympus EPL-7. It can hold it's own in this round-up and yet the largest mirrorless system got excluded entirely.

Yep, for what you get the price is very good on the E-PL7.

Hmmmm, it seems this is really going somewhere. I was surprised that last week Interdiscount (electronics chain in Switzerland) introduced the camera in its publicity brochure (I forgot the price though). So basically it should be widely available here ...

Barend: A new but old-fashioned dinosaur. I love my D700 but the next step is Sony A7.

Ok, agreed. For me it is vice versa. Doing fieldwork I am trying to go for small with a reasonable iq. It is probably subjective, I probably would not have a problem with a D750 (had none with my E-600 and the 12-60 one year ago, except sometimes the small viewfinder ;-) go figure). But since I got the NX300 I am happy with the smaller package ..

On Real-world test: Going pro with the Samsung NX1 article (368 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cal22: Kudos to Samsung! They clearly want pros to defect to their NX system, and with the NX1 and the new 'S' zooms they might succeed. (However, the advantage of mirrorless - less bulky and less heavyweight than SLRs - gets lost a bit with the camera/lens combo in the video) Be aware that Samsung do it all themselves, as to development and production, whether it's sensor and processor or camera and lenses!

I'm hoping, though, for the new sensor/processor in a (stabilized?) NX400, slim and lightweight, and eventually an optional EVF for flexible use in landscapes and travel. As to the lenses: More high quality lenses (especially wide angle primes: 12mm/20mm or 14mm/24mm) and good third party lenses would certainly be appreciated by many customers who aren't content with the current lineup of Samsung lenses to choose from.

Yes, that is also what I am hoping for. An NX400 with the upcoming 11-24/2.8 and/or the 16-80/4.

Why so? This would be as to say that a D750 / D4 ... is giving me a bloody shoulder ache ... I never had an issue with the first high-res EVF in my Dimage A2 years ago. Not everybody has the same issues ... for me it is size (not weight, mind you, but if it is also lighter, the more the merrier).
