On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (631 comments in total)

How come there's no comparison with an EPM2?

edit: Saw it. I'd take the cheaper one.

I'll take a mirrorless version of this.

JEROME NOLAS: Not sure about this one. They could have a winner, if the lens (zoom 24-50mm, f2.8-4.0) is fixed and the body is size of LX7. With m4/3 sensor it would be a killer! Now it's just another Panasonic.

Agreed. I'm still waiting for Panny/Oly to make such fixed lens MFT and not so protective of their LX/XZ series.

draschan: interesting to me that this does not stir more enthusiasm. to me m43 is all about size. with the 20mm and the 14mm pancakes it is a perfect match. hope it will be available soon without the kit lens. having very large hands I never had troubles with small cameras. large hands doesn't mean clumsy. I was thinking about getting a ricohGR or rx100II but I will take a look at the GM1 first.

I'd rather the GR.
@SHood
Though, you're argument is better for use in low light, the GR has better a sensor and would resolve better.

Nice, but too expensive compared to EPM2. This should have been a fixed lens before we can compare it to an Rx100.

It's only now I realized why it is isn't APSC sized sensor. They don't want to compete with their NEX line.

Sigh...Sony makes you fall for the competitively priced bodies and takes it back with lenses.
With the price of the 35mm, I don't see prices of the RX1/r dropping soon.

I just can't wait what this can do for the Eos-M, but then, it would be too late once the Sony FF compacts gets announced.

In reply to:

zodiacfml: Sigh, Canon is too comfortable with their sales with no upgrade yet with the image sensor. By now, the G series should have been at the level of the Nikon 1 and Rx100, in terms of sensor size.

The G1X is at another level, it is m4/3 territory which made it larger and slower to focus. Between the Nikon 1, RX, and the G, I would preferred the Nikon but I don't need an ILC. The RX seems the best, but the price is steep. The G is huge yet nice to handle but with IQ lagging.

Is there a problem with the RX1 R? It has softer corners than an APS format, and at the center, it doesn't resolve any better.

In reply to:

zodiacfml: Excellent and now with a hot shoe, but the price killed it for me. The price is too close to a Ricoh GR though Sony still deserves to price it that high.

@ET2

Good points.Though I still prefer the image quality of the bigger format since I find joy in processing high quality RAW files, the features of the RX100 are quite tempting to have such as the 60p video and IS.

In reply to:

Raist3d: I tried a Sony rx100 mk II for some street life. Bought one and returned it within the hour.* Great camera for many things but didn't find it too hot for street life work. I sincerely find the Pentax Q line faster with greater usability for that kind of work. And the Sony at tele goes very slow.

Still have to give sony the kudos for packing so much high tech in the little space and above all the LCD. The LCD is hands down best in class of any LCD I have seen on any camera. With the power on sun mode I had direct clear sky sunlight falling on it and it still was very visible with great contrast. The fuji xm1 for example has a mode like that but the LCD becomes washed out and hard to judge exposure.

Sony- if you could make a camera like this with faster response, less zoom range and higher quality lens (wasnt too impressed with some of the ghosting) and faster I would be interested. Or even a prime set. But for now it just comes across to me as a camera trying to be "too smart" and "trying too hard"- sort of what Zack Arias said in the x100s review.

* I made it darn clear to the store I may return it according to their policy if it didn't work for me to make sure and they fully encouraged me to give it the try and return if it didn't work. I double clarified that they were cool with that before buying.

prime please..

On How many megapixels do you need? post (228 comments in total)

Entertaining read even for a longtime DPR reader here. I agree on all statements, except one which is unfortunately is the most important, the answer to the question.

In my opinion, the answer would depend on the quality and size of the lens. It would be pointless to ask for even more resolution if the lens installed is limiting what the camera's electronics can do. The Pureview 808 does it magic with a high quality lens and not on only pure megapixel count.

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2081 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ayoh: Something seems not quite right here. At all resolution levels including "Print" and "Web" the E-M1 has visually similar noise level (perhaps within 0.5 EV) to the Canon 5D Mark III (within the shadows in particular). Theoretically there should be a 2 stop advantage to the 5d, and even is the E-M1 sensor has better per-pixel S/N performance than the 5d, I would not expect them to be so similar.
Were both sensors really exposed to the same amount of light per sensor area?

You must have been looking at jpeg samples. The 5DIII despite being behind Nikon in sensor performance, still is substantially ahead of the m4/3 sensors even at a print size of 8MP.
What I find revealing though is how close the m4/3 sensors perform versus APS sensors, even the d7100. The APSC might be resolving better but I doubt it useful at 8MP print sizes, even the RX100 MII is not far behind in that mode. Very interesting times.
