NowHearThis: The Zeiss looks fantastic.
I agree! Something I would love to have! Ive wanted a zoom like this since I had a A300 with the 16-80ZA for a short period
I dont like how they named it a Tessar though....
Man....the GX7 is completely on par with the NEX6 at all iso's and a TAD bit ahead of the EP-5 at 6400 and 12800.
Thats pretty dam impressive!
marleni: The important question for many: has Canon improved also the OPTICAL quality of the new EF-S 55-250mm version ?? The older version is sadly not a very sharp lens, I knew some who turned to this lens as their first tele, but were quite disappointed and gave it back...
white shadow, $1000 vs a 350 lens is not a fair comparison. Also some people never will "upgrade" to full frame.
Jim: The Nikon V1/J1 series doesn't pass the test of obviousness. Interchangable lenses with a small sensor just don't go well together. If you're going to change lenses you might as well have a larger sensor without much of a penalty in size. This camera, like the Pentax Q7, just makes no sense. When the price point is factored in, it just lame. It's almost as if Nikon didn't do any target marketing before releasing this product line.
Cannibalizing your own sales, is better then someone else doing it.
gp2003gt: I just saw from another review site and I only see a slight improovement in high ISO (6400 ISO) over the 60D.
Looks like I will have to wait and save more money and get an entry level full frame camera.
White shadow.....*sighs* Im often at 6400/12800 at house parties shooting at 1.4/2.0, still barely stops motion (1/125). Your low light is not the same as everyone elses.
When I used to shoot dance i would have to use fast primes over a 2.8 zooms @6400 because i couldnt stop motion with it. F2 or faster. Full frames do allow the use of high ISO, but the DOF gets so thin it becomes the same really. But it does allow the use of 2.8 zooms @ 2.8
Menneisyys: Unless Google subsidizes its price (as they did with the Nexus 4), this phone will be a flop.
No sane people would pay $200 on / $600 off contract for a mid-specced device. That's the price of the significantly(!!!!) better Samsung GS4.
Now, for $300 off contract (as is the Nexus 4), this thing would fly off the shelves...
The rumors said it would be $300 for 16gb and $349 for the 32gb. But....that didnt happen.
There is no reason why ANY phone should cost $600Tablets dont even cost that much with similar specs any longer. The screen is the most expensive thing in a phone!
Mikhail Tal: DPR You do not have a great track record recently of reviewing mirrorless cameras. The GF5, G5, E-PL5, NEX-5R and NX 20 seem to have been skipped completely, and the GF6, G6 and NEX-3N have been available for a few months with still no review. I'm not even counting the E-PL6 but you haven't reviewed that yet either. In contrast you've reviewed literally every DSLR released so far except the newish K-50, as far as I can tell, and almost every premium compact and even some cheap compacts.
So with that all being said, I strongly request that you give the GX7 review VERY HIGH priority. On paper it is the best mirrorless camera to date, and one of the best if not the best consumer-level cameras of any variety to date. It deserves your quick attention, a whole lot more than, say, the Canon T5i did.
how was the touch screen?
Combatmedic870: Soooo....30mm 1.4 for NEX/X/M/NX mounts???? With AF?? How does that exactly work?
@Mikhail Tal Well thats a good point you make there! I didnt think of that.
I do think the GX7 is very nice though.
Well i got that part. But will it still support AF? But that also just may mean that DSLR lenses may not be released in the mirrorless mounts.
Im missing the big point of this...
To me this seems...pointless at this point in time.
The 4 years soulnds good of coarse....
Good for pentax/ a mount users users i guess...
BTW wheres the GX7 annoucement? preorders are up for it...
ryanshoots: It must have been shocking for Instagram users to have 11 less photos to look at all of a sudden
In other news... four grains of sand stolen from beach.
I LMFAO at this comment...thanks for that.
Soooo....30mm 1.4 for NEX/X/M/NX mounts???? With AF?? How does that exactly work?
Geez make us wait while you make an awesome sign! i never! ;)
Davidgilmour: No mention of the fact that the X-100 JPEG colors are nicer than the X-100s JPEG colors? Why?
Thats strictly a matter opinion.
Just like IMO oly's XZ-2 colors are nicer vs the X20...which means they may be better then every X camera!
Is that the truth....who knows....but its an opinion of someone that doesnt own a XZ-2 and has a XE-1
MarioV: I have the previous Nexus 7. These are very good devices. Only issue is that, over a few months, the battery steadily loses the ability to hold a charge for very long when in standby mode. Higher res and 50g lighter are nice, but doesn't make me rush to upgrade.
Wipe battery stats and do a battery cycle discharge.1.Kill the battery completely (when it dies turn it back on, over and over until it doesnt turn back on)2.Then charge it fully and completely3. wipe battery stats4 kill it again(look up a really long 42 hour movie on you tube and play it and leave it) make sure its completely dead. as in wont turn on5 Charge it up COMPLETELY again and enjoy!
This is the best way to do it. Theres other ways, but this has always worked best for me with built in batteries.If you want it done FAST and will work ok and, skip # 1
One thing not mentioned oddly enough is the red green blue clear pixel array that the sensor uses
Also not mention is the fact the phones use a Moto x8 computing chip. Not quite octacore but similar. The gpu is composed of (I think) 4 adreno 320 CPUs.
So these phones are actually little power houses.
The other 2 cores(besides the 1.7ghz s4) are...• One local natural language processor (L‐NLP). Motorola proprietary low‐power specialized processor with audio sensors, noise estimators, noise cancellation, and speech recognition technology to enable always-on voice based user interaction without sacrificing battery life.• One contextual computing processor (CCP). Motorola proprietary low-power specialized processor that computes contextual data from sensors enabling intelligent mobile computing and always-on display mode.
Jake64: 41 mp on a sensor the size of a pinhead...grrrreeeaat
It has a 1/1.4 sensor. So it has a sensor around the size of the Fuji x20 and larger vs the oly XZ-2
Very impressive results in all conditions. Beats out all of the popular phones.
Why yes it is.
