  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview

    The GM1and GM5 is the best thing that ever happen to the Micro4/3 system. It gives "micro4/3" its true meaning.

    I have been using a GM1 for almost a year now and when I pair it with my Ricoh GR...

  • I am revisiting this review after almost 5 years of owning and still using the Canon G12. Despite all these years of use, the camera is still going strong and still one of my favourite compact...

  • I agree with adhall. It would have been nice to have at least f/2.0. It can be done but they are just not doing it. Sigma has an excellent 18-35mm f1.8. f/2.8 is too ordinary for APS-C.

  • The new Fuji lens is huge making mirrorless not much of an advantage. The Sigma 18-35mm is excellent and for a very good price too. Other than being weatherproof, I would rather have the Canon 7D...

  • Initially, they might just use the kit lens but once they learn more about photography they might buy a prime or a longer zoom lens. A 50mm equivalent prime lens is usually what a newbie will buy....

  • DPR seem to have left out the Lumix GF6 which is actually quite a good bang for the money and a great entry level mirrorless camera. I would certainly buy one if I am buying my first camera.

  • I would also consider the Sony A5100 as entry level and quite a good one at that price. In some markets, it is selling for only about $500.

    The only problem with Sony is the limited choice of...

  • Now, with Kodak gone under, I wonder where Leica is going to get replacements for the sensor.

    There goes the second hand value of Leica digital M bodies.

    Anyway, anybody who thinks that...

  • @ Miron09

    Where did you get the information that some Leica bodies are assembled in Malaysia?

  • For most people, APS-C is good enough. However, if you are shooting landscape or products for advertising, medium format is still the preferred sensor size. The other use is portrait photography...

  • Not many amateur photographer who have photography as a hobby would consider buying medium format. It is just too expensive or big to play around with. Thus, there is no demand at retail level. The...

    Obviously, the quality of the camera does matters. However, if the user has not mastered the Art of Seeing and the Art of Light in photography and composition, the best camera and...

  • After all the complaints that the GM1 don't have an EVF and a hotshoe, Panasonic is giving users a choice, the GM1 or GM5. Buy whichever you want. For the purpose of this size of camera, the GM1 is...
