  • if they are smart they will limit the supply Production methods and waste (hand finished unibody milled from an aluminum billet) will limit the supply (and skyrocket the cost), anyway....
  • at 1/6th of the Leica cost. Turns out I was wrong about that bit?? Steve Huff on the T (with price quotes)
  • Look again at that cool curvy shiny body; it is not cast, or forged (and then CNC-finished), but milled from a solid aluminum block (the block itself, though is just cut out from an aluminum...
  • Where do you plan to buy the Casio from? It is not available outside the Asian market.

  • If size is not an issue, why would you choose a PEN over an EM? Small size is the reason for the PEN success in Asia (and its failure in the USA).  If you are happy with the size of a P5, just get...
  • If it's video only that you need, why not the BlackMagic?
  • That was quick! Thanks (and pity that we will still have to wait for some informed opinion on the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two pancakes). Did you find that the low speed flash sync...
  • You have made the switch from RX100 to GM1 and you are waiting for a EM10 (plus kit lens?) - so, that makes you one of the tiny minority of people who will be actually in a position to make...
  • Replied in
    If you can stretch your budget *a bit*, get rid of the 40-150 (possibly the flash as well) and invest in a Panasonic 35-100/2.8. You will end up with two great lenses and a much more versatile...
  • The problem with Apple is that most if not all its patents (square shape with rounded edges and thin sides?) look like they were filed and approved on April 1. I was firmly convinced that this was...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    You would have been 100% right IF the N1 series were overall smaller and lighter than its competitors. Unfortunately they are hugely outclassed in that department by the RX100 (if you don't need a...

    Smaller sensor, but still no size and weight advantage over m3/4 (with the exception of the 32/1.2, which is faster than the Oly 45 and smaller and cheaper than the Nocticron). AND very limited...

  • Why would you want to spend money on a second standard zoom, covering the same range with the kit zoom coming with the camera? If you buy the EM10, consider spending the rest of your budget on the...

  • Split-prism manual focusing was not exclusive to rangefinders. Pre-autofocus SLRs also had it - at least Nikons did - and they were just as quick as rangefinders - and a joy to use.
  • Replied in Olympus E-P7
    You are right that the franken-E7 will not happen (although we can dream of a pop-up, or pop-out-to-the side evf). You are also right that a GM1-sized camera with IBIS and faster mechanical shutter...
  • Replied in Olympus E-P7
    Alas, if you translate this interview from marketing-speak to plain english, we might just as well abandon all hope of a GM1 challenger from Olympus: Olympus interview by Blunty " Pens are for...
  • Replied in Olympus E-P7
    Small and evf-less is GM1 territory. Olympus would need to add a little, or rather quite a lot, of extra, even at the cost of a slightly -with emphasis on slightly, only slightly - bigger body:...
  • Rpm40, you beat me to the post. We don't know much about the performance of the lens yet, but if it is as good as the specs, this is the lens that Panoly should have tried to build. Well... now...
