Plasticky low tier bodies vs premium top of the line magnesium alloy bodies. Nice comparison.

In reply to:

tkbslc: Why does it make so many FF shooters angry when people using cameras with smaller sensors have access to nice lenses that they can use to make good photos? Is it some kind of defense mechanism so they can feel better about buying FF?

A paltry 8 elements in 5 groups with a design from 1993 and a new 2015 lens with 17 elements in 15 groups including a load of expensive elements (1 aspherical, 3 super ED, 2 ED, 1 super HR, 2 HR lenses...). No weather seal either. In term of light gathering also more than one stop faster (and I wont go into how big and heavy Nikon bodies are to save you some faces).

Equivalence in term of construction indeed...

And your tone is way off. Instead of being considerate (as you claimed), you have to laugh off and highlight every single LARGER, SMALLER and HEAVIER words. Yeah what a way to be polite and constructive.

M43 is not just about LIGHT, it is about VERSATILITY.

In reply to:

Terry Breedlove: Ok so 50 MP is cool for some but way over kill for most. It just seems that Canon and Nikon are still in the megapixel wars when other companies such as Olympus and Sony are innovating and producing new cameras chocked full of technologies most of us really want and need. The two big boys at the top are living in yesterdays reality building boring plastic bubble cameras.

@Turbsy:A NEW gimmick that works.
@ Plastek: yeah so late Canon did not even have it. Although everyone can already see how good that gimmick is for landscape. OH WAIT! I thought this canon is about landscape!

Meh camera at best.

In reply to:

RaghavBaijal: What I find a bit worrisome is NOT that it is lagging behind the current competition in IQ, but the fact that Canon users will have to contend with this for the next 5 Years!! At which point I am guessing that even M4/3 sensors will perform much better than this perhaps even in the High ISO department.

Fact is, M43 already outperforms this outdated sensor. Check on DXOmark

Daniel L: Just a reminder to the toddlers here

With or without WIFI/4K/touchscreen. The price point is $1,799, you can't afford it anyway. Go play with your cellphone and call mommy for monthly allowance while you at it.

Strong talk heh? My MONTHLY salary makes this looks like a TOY. How rich are you big mouth?

Edit: still not buying this toy anyway, this thing deserves to be in the TRASH bag together with Daniel L.

Zvonimir Tosic: First the amazing GX7, now LX100.
This is brilliant; real thinking outside the box.

Haha, yeah sure. For a product this inferior it's only place is in the pocket. Why hide this Pana beast under any pocket. It should be on my neck all the time.

Feel so amused when you dare to call my whole list a laundry and offer pocket-ability as the only difference when the difference in volume is a mere 22%. My pocket cover that 22% so easy but I don't even feel need to hide my Pana beast. I guess some others do though. Period.

Hachu21: The exact same size as the eos M + 22 f/2... Oh my...

@ matty_boy: really? Outdated sensor and the lens is not even as wide. This wins by a land slide.

In reply to:

mujana: This lens looks perfect! Too bad it isn't available for m4/3rds. I guess I have to stick to the 75mm/1.8 and the 45mm/1.8 Zuiko for portraiture...(not a real problem by the way)

The 25 1.4 is really good or you can get the 25 0.95, 25 1.8. In any case, I don't think it makes sense for them to enter that focal length anymore.

In reply to:

MikeStern: I returned my A7r for the oly em1. And I am sooo pleased with this decision.

Some here talking about m4/3 vs. apsc vs. full frame. I would rather concentrate on olympus rather than m4/3 in general. Because 5 axis ibs is out of this world. 3 axis is also very good. And it's not just my opinion, everybody who try it will agree with me.

I have not taking a single blurry picture yet. Including 1/3 of a second exposures.

Yes but that's with lens and it makes everything heavy and cumbersome. On the other hand, Oly is rolling out 40-150 2.8 this year and 300 2.8 next year so I think you should consider again.

Again reading the comment section is the best way to lol. So many "experts" here claim that this is overpriced, yet none has seen the actual performance and comparison with the Fuji. If you look up on the web, there are some samples of the Pana and damn they are so sharp and so good even wide open. That bokeh and characteristics are of course "leica".

I was taken back a bit by the price, but looking through the specs. It is more complicated than the Fuji (14 e in 11 groups vs 11 e in 8 groups). It seems to be heavier because it is fully metal as other Leica lens should be (fuji is only barrel and mount metal). OIS is yeah first of its kind for this. Considering all that and the leica badge (it costs), it seems OK at the moment. If further test proves this a lemon then we will know - not now...

In reply to:

goshigoo: Spec-wise, it is even worse than fuji's one....except OIS

for $1600....it's better to get D610 + 85 f/1.8G
which is only ~USD $2000 in HK....

Fuji: 11 elements in 8 groups - 7 blades - metal barrel and mount only
Pana: 14 elements in 11 groups - 9 blades - OIS - all metal

Yeah... it's worse...

audiobomber: The K-3 is a better photographic tool than the EM-1, with higher resolution, lower noise, broader dynamic range, switchable blur filter, -3EV sensitivity, three f2.8 AF points, dual card slots, more capable AF-C and tracking.

The EM-5 beat the D800E in this same poll. That says more about the number of m4/3 fanboys around here than it does about the cameras.

Seriously, why do people need to jump all over a poll that is simply about what the majority of people like most? There are people who view this poll purely through their fanboyism

In reply to:

Robbie Corrigan: K-3 for me. Olympus is sacrificing the size advantage of the M4/3 system which irc was the main reason for it existing in the first place. DPR staff are big fans of the O-MD, practically raving about it in one of their videos so I will assume it has its merits. I personally think that it will be easier to get a cleaner, bigger print from the K-3, cheaper too.
Lens wise, the Sigma Art series are becoming a force to be reckoned with in the optical arena, Kudos! I am however beginning to become disappointed by the size of these uber lenses.. 18-35, 35 f/1.4 from Sigma, 58 f/1.4 from Nikon, 55 f/1.4 from Carl Zeiss are stupidly big in my opinion. It feels like they are throwing glass and bulk as a solution to limitations instead of real optical design.

OMD Em1 is built with the grip to handle 43 lens. It is a camera that bridge between 43 and M43 system so large grip is compulsory for those "big tuna" and "small tuna".

quangzizi: Cheap Leica anyone? They will liquidate soon I guess.

Of course, but we can all acknowledge that technically Leica position is so unique so they can charge a much higher price. Now This sony is the proper "poor man Leica" for better performance.

Anyway, just a joke. I still want that red dot some days for the feels.
