Now make one that turns a 300mm large format lens into an ungodly light-capturing beast.
This is just a ruined NEX7. I've been scoffing at Leica for years, but this is by far the most idiotic camera product I've seen.
Since when is 150mm a portrait lens?
What a hack job.
Bevardis: Rangefinder system is outdated? Please, with some training you can be just as fast as any SLR lens, if not even faster. And also >100% viewfinder is such an amazing thing.
Taking pictures with RFs is nothing like SLR in many respects- not better, not worse, but just so different.
It is such a shame no affordable camera exists.... Even at $9000 M9 body offers inferior performance to entry level DSLRs for $500. Solution- do the film and dream of Canonet D :)
xtoph: You are saying you can check focus, adjust focus and trigger the shutter in less time than it takes an Olympic sprinter to respond to a bang. I don't think your M could take the strain. Might catch fire or melt.
Show me a rangefinder user who can focus in 0.1 seconds.
Longitudinal CA has been such a pain. If this tool really works that well, it's a great leap for fast aperture photography.
Donar: Is the slow startup problem also fixed? I stopped using my X100 because startup time could take several minutes! And in between that time it looked like it was dead/broken and was not going to startup at all. Oke when I re-formated the memory card the problem was gone, but I like to work with large sdcards for a reason so was thinking of the OM-D EM-5.
I really like the panorama mode for the X100, but the internal stitching isn't that good, especially with white highlights (snow). Is that fixed? (does anyone know how the OM-D panorama mode works? The NEX-7 panorama mode seemed to work better than the X100's.
That's probably a problem with the SD card, which could be fixed by formatting it.
Jesus. I was certain I would never see another firmware for my X100.
brkl: That's pretty remarkable. As good as the best of APS-C it seems.
dgrogers: Huh. I wish they had a light meter in the scene. It gets difficult to make any conclusions regarding the actual performance of the cameras. I would at least like to know the procedure they use to make sure each shot gets the same amount of light.
odl: Yes. But is there any reason to suppose they weren't?
Hmph. I take that back. Looking at the ISO 6400 JPEG EXIF and comparing E-M5 and Nex 7, E-M5 is getting a lot more light.
E-M5 Exposure value = log2 (6.3^2/(1/1600)) ~= 16
Nex 7 Exposure value = log2 (8^2/(1/2000)) ~= 17
So that's a full stop more light for the E-M5. The ISO 3200 Nex 7 shot has the same EV as the ISO 6400 E-M5 shot (log2 (8^2/(1/1000))). Therefore, if you want to compare those cameras, you have to choose Nex 7 shots with a stop lower ISO to get a matching exposure.
That's still a good result for the E-M5, but not as shocking.
(Wolfram link for the logarithmic calculations: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=log2+%286.3%5E2%2F%281%2F1600%29%29%2C+log2+%288%5E2%2F%281%2F2000%29%29%2C+log2+%288%5E2%2F%281%2F1000%29%29)
That's pretty remarkable. As good as the best of APS-C it seems.
I'm sure it's a terrific camera, but damn I hate the way it looks.
Good lord. Pixel binning is bogus, but such a large sensor in a phone is really exciting.
Flickr has been good to me, but an interface revamp is definitely needed.
sarkozy: Understand the excitement is not quiteThere are worldwide, such B. photos on Flickr thousands of pretty or very good photos and only about 50 photos with ORBS?
I hold my X10 ;)
That's probably because the orb photos are ruined. Why would you upload them?
Mssimo: This is getting double the comments than the D800. Whats up with that? I might have to order both of them.
What can you say about the D800? It's like D700, but newer.
Elieser: The review properly represents sensor possibilities and noise reduction level. It did not demonstrate true lens qualitat, because all pictures were done with aperture F 5,6 - 8,0
shoooot: I think it looks great. The NEX 7 looks like something from Startrek. Old Startrek.
You must not have seen Star Trek.
