  • Lots of Micro 4/3s cameras with that. G6, GX7, GH4, E-M1/5/10...

  • Well yes. The idea of using any digital mirrorless lenses between systems falls down from the very start. Samsung's slightly-longer flange distance doesn't make a whit of difference, since all the...

  • They actually do offer premium lenses at affordable prices. At least compared to all their competitors.

    Their 30mm/f2, a superb lens, costs only $250...

  • @arbuz Many M4/3 primes actually do cover APS-C, possibly why they have such good corners. See here:

  • Samsung has a better lens system than Sony does. Only Micro Four Thirds, and possibly (but not a sure thing) Fuji, have a more complete crop-system of lenses. That's including Canon and Nikon...

  • @steelhead3

    Hopefully they both blink. Better for us. Both currently have unique selling propositions that make choosing one over the other a legitimately difficult decision.

    The quality...

  • Interesting. Which Panasonic M4/3 do you have?

    I bought my girlfriend a Samsung NX210 with the 30mm/f2 lens (fantastic rendering on that one), and later got myself a Panasonic GX1. I was expecting...

  • @ samhain

    Honestly, that's the most absurd thing I've ever heard. How a camera looks doesn't in any way define what you do with it.

    Does Micro Four Thirds say "macro shooters?" Because I'm having...

  • Seems like they missed a big opportunity by not making the 90mm f2 a 1:1 Macro lens. That would be a really unique proposition (well, unless you want to pony up $1300 for an Olympus OM 90mm f2...

  • Precisely so. We are after equivalent quality images, not just equivalent appearance (like a shoddily made knock-off vs. the original), which requires using all the variables.

    For field of view,...

    "Also, me thinks equivalent FL was pushed by marketing because who would want 3.5mm lens instead of 350mm lens?"

    The person who wants to put the camera in their pocket, perhaps? (I...

  • Very well put.

    There are lots of situations where a large sensor will have significant advantages. But surprisingly many where the two are roughly equivalent (there's that word again).

    More often...

  • I believe that is exactly his point, Richard.

    In both circumstances where he wants to achieve the same critical depth of focus, the formats are functionally equivalent. In low light, he needs to...

  • Hahaha, I think it's pretty clear we both know what we're talking about and are getting semantic. Tomato, tomahto.

  • To be totally accurate, you'll find that it's not because of the focal length or the sensor size, it's entirely because of the size of the physical iris (which is obviously larger with the same f....
