On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 article (495 comments in total)

User8606253983: Looking good, but outdated sensor. When will we get new sensors on m43. Been on 16 mp a while now. Would like my next om-d to have a few more pixels if possible.

I think even the forthcoming GX8 is going to use the same old sensor ...

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 article (495 comments in total)

As my DSLR FF is too bulky, for the sake of portability, I recently got the GM1 with 12-32 kit lens and was quite satisfied with the IQ it produces (especially when shooting RAW).

It seems the G7 is employing the same sensor (well, no new sensor!) of other family members (GX7/GF7/GM5/GM1) but with a newer/more powerful processing engine, I believe the IQ should be even better. While the support of 4K video is for sure a future proof feature, the introduction of diffraction compensation is nice to have (or it's just a kind of gimmick, just dunno). For instance, my 12-32 suffers from diffraction starting F9.

As far as body design is concerned, to be honest, G6 is better. The sleek design of G6 makes it to be the most beauty G series model ever made by Pan.

All in all, I think G7 is good to go (GH4 is too bulky anyway).

jerry367: Price is great, but too heavy for me.

Size does matter! A bit disappointed.

TruePoindexter: I've investigated some of the extremely low prices people have been linking for the Canon 24-105 f/4 L and have discovered that these lenses have been pulled from combo packages of Canon 6D and 5DmkIII cameras and as such almost certainly will not be covered under warranty by Canon. Buy these at your own risk.

From legitimate retailers this Sigma 24-105 f/4 lens represents a significant price savings over the Canon/Nikon equivalents and will be a compelling lens if it performs.

Of course it was akin to buying used. The original purchaser sold you the kit lens only. And he/she gave you a copy of the legitimate retailer receipt. As such, I think the warranty should be fine.

Joe Ogiba: I guess if Sigma does not come out with an E mount version with IS I will just get the Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS for my VG900.

82mm filter, 800+ grams. Too big for almost everyone!

It's cute! Should I get one ... though I already have the Metz 44 AF-1 for my D700

Sigma is pretty impressive, though it's not my cup of tea. I need FF lens :)

So many NEX bodies, so confused. Can they make things simpler, straight forward ... may be just two NEX product lines, pro and amateur. And one model per line.

TimK5: No VR on the 18-35?

= Fail!

Well, VR is almost a must have feature

Direct link | Posted on Jan 29, 2013 at 15:44 UTC

18-35 FX looks good. If I'm not having the 16-35 VR ... may give it a shot.

pc168: Ugly or not, it's pretty subjective. I believe, many of the Nikon 1 existing and/or potential users, are having a bunch of Nikkors. While the D700 is way too heavy, I'm looking for a smaller form factor body for travel. Let see how good the IQ and high ISO control would perform.

Well, sensor size does matter. Otherwise I would have already bought the V1 a year ago.

pc168: The IQ at base ISO is excellent for such a small sensor. However, high ISO performance is steps behind its rivals. That is unforgivable in nowadays technology.

Plan B is to enhance and enforce plan A.

Direct link | Posted on Aug 15, 2012 at 08:36 UTC

The base iso performance should be good enough. Anyway, my Samsung fridge is great, it has an outer metallic cover ... same as the nx210 :)

tkbslc: What they really needed was more pancake primes and faster apertures. Not a slimmer kit lens and a body re-work.

People need a pancake zoom like the pana X 14-42 but w/o the infamous 1/60-1/160 shutter speed deadzone blurry pic problem :)

nguyenthanhhieuthanson: why not 20 megapixel
why not APS-C sensor

For APS-C sensor, we've to go for their D3200. That's what they want!

Direct link | Posted on Aug 9, 2012 at 04:41 UTC

It seems all or most of the reviewers over the net are using version 0.2. So, they're getting the first batch of production version 1?
