  • Or, if you want an ultrazoom, you might want to try this

    or this...

  • If your picture is recent, you forget your age advantage. When I was your age (and weight) I could also carry a Nikon FE2+50/1.8+24/2.8+Vivitar Series 1 zoom + Metz45 flashgun for hours (no tripod,...

  • Yes, that's a rare situation where "equivalent aperture" and DoF comparisons may matter. If 2.8@300 is rarely useable (due to razor-thin DoF), what is the point of the extra cost and weight? On...

  • "Its depth-of-field and light capture costs (it's most directly comparable to a Full Frame 70-200mm F5.6)"

    No, no, no, dear DPR, in a telephoto, deep DoF is never ever a cost, it is always a...

  • Replied in Primer.
    Ok, now I am convinced that our disagreement is a bit like the old joke about the economist the scientist and the mathematician, traveling on a train; when they saw a black sheep, the economist ...
  • Replied in Primer.
    Exactly, that was my point. There is no disagreement between us on that. So, it looks like it boils down to a disagreement on the importance of using a standardized vocabulary ("equivalent ...
  • Replied in Primer.
    I am not sure I get your question. Of course noise depends on both the strength of the signal and the S/N ratio. And the strength of the signal will depend not only on the signal itself (duh), aka ...
  • Yes DoF is relevant, but not the way you mean it: with a smaller sensor, you do not need to stop down, to get enough of it; and with a good lens, you can still stop down to about 11, without much ...

    "equivalent focal length" is a standardized way of describing (across formats) "what you see through the lens when shooting from the same point" ; this information is important, therefore ...
  • Replied in Primer.
    Don't bother, the equivalence trolls simply transform an argument about signal-to-noise ratio, which is true, but irrelevant, until you reach very high signal amplification (aka ISO) into an ...
  • I believe that the question is not whether you can put an m4/3 mount on the existing 11-34 lens, but whether you can adapt (or improve) the design and keep close to the dimensions of the original, ...
  • For me - and the GM1 is my primary and only camera - a tilting lcd is just as important as size, if being unobtrusive is #1 consideration - trust me,  - but I am anyway too shy for street ...
  • I am merely trying to point out that professional cinematography cameras are not made with a photographer's needs in mind, are way out of his budget and are not relevant in a discussion about still...

  • Fast moving sports with shallow DOF? Dude, TV crews filming sports neither care for an EPIC, nor can afford one, not for that kind of job; and they certainly try to have DEEEEEEEEEP DoF, not...

  • In which case, a comparable standalone zoom might have to be up to 2cm longer and quite wider than the 12-34, and somewhat slower than the LX100 zoom. But impossible? That's a really really big ...
  • ... and, even if it is, let's wait for a standalone version of lx100's lens, before we compare; a comparison between lenses with different designs is really a cabbages and kings situation.
  • Replied in Panasonic GM5
    I have the 20/1.7 and I have seen (the GM1) with the 45/1.8 (which is in my "to buy" list) as a primary lens. Both warmly recommended. The 25 and 30 are a different matter. 25 is not my favorite ...
  • hmmm... if you are trying to say that you intent to splurge on a nocticron 42.5, which is neither small and lightweight, by m4/3 standards, nor cheap, by any standards (unless we are talking Leica...

  • Replied in Panasonic GM5
    I do rave about the GM1 (and I certainly recommend the GM series over the considerably bigger EM10)! Functionally, the main difference between GM1 and GM5 seems to be that the GM5 has a faster ...
  • Replied in Panasonic GM5
    Alas, it looks like even the much maligned EVF of the RX100iii is better: "If you look right into the EVF on engaging it everything will be blurry, but that's because you need to 'pull' the finder ...
