On article Small but mighty: hands on with the Panasonic GX85/GX80 (311 comments in total)
In reply to:

fedway: So that does mean Panny will be introducing a GX8 Mark 2 shortly with the improved shutter mechanism? It's like saying we acknowledge there is a major design problem with our old shutter. So why continue selling the old one?

It has less vibrations, but it also seems limited to 1/4000s

the gx7 and 8 can go up to 1/8000s it may put some enthousiasts off.

Peiasdf: Some of you people are not thinking critically. SONY has the best interchangeable-lens camera system bar none.

A7R II + 70-200 is a few hundred grams heavier than X-T1 + 16-55 and E-M1 + 40-150 but it delivers 3 times the MP and twice the low light performance. A7R II + 70-200 is a few hundred grams lighter and far smaller than D750 or 5D3 + 70-200 while still delivering more MP and equal ISO performance.

If the f/2.8 lenses are too large and fast, you can switch to smaller, slower zooms or 3rd party lens and still have IBIS and native focal length. No DSRL can support legacy lenses and no other EVIL/mirrorless can support native focal length.

The a6300 announced today solved the EVF blackout problem that no other maker can solve. Coupled with Epson mass producing the 4 mega-dot EVF it means the next SONY flagship only have to deal with EVIL/mirrorless' battery disadvantage while offer so much more flexibility.

"no other EVIL/mirrorless can support native focal length."

Leica SL? announced last year, a pro grade full frame MILC (12FPS+4k video)

In reply to:

mrc4nl: Legacy preformance,high end price. Its a tough sell for lensbaby. and 50 3.4 seems on the low side for bokeh shots, not near as fast as a f1.4 (or f1.8)

@ednaz
"Lens blur does look different than software generated blur in most cases" eeeeuh....

I was talking about the blur from a old 50 1.2 legacy lens not software!.That lens is more than 2 stops faster, i dont think you get more blur with any f3.4 lens,

Bokeh looks busy to me

Posted on Jan 6, 2016 at 10:43 UTC as 1st comment

$500 ?!!? No thanks, ill rather buy the Samyang 50mm f1.2 for that price.

For $500 I want sharpness, if i wanted a soft image i might as well buy a old legacy lens or a CCTV one for about 60$

Tomx72: As earlier stated: 200Mbps, 422/10bit h.265 - "only" 4k, INTERNAL and I am happy.

"the introduction of 8K video in cameras will eliminate the boundary between videos and stills." Really? Stills are 444/14bit raw nowadays...

4+4+4=12 bit

In reply to:

Irata: Sounds like those "magic resize" Photoshop filter: lossless resizing no matter what size...

Seriously, though: I've tested cheap and expensive filters (polarizer and ND), and couldn't really tell much difference in terms of sharpness. And as long as there's no complementary contrast, anything that's not neutral can be neutralised anyway.

Cheap CPL'S have cheap coatings, they flare more than the multicoated ones. that DOES reduce contrast!

2 from Panasonic 1 from Olympus and one from Voightlander.
makes 4 its pathetic indeed

If the 100mm is is good as the 135mm f2 from Samyang were in for some awsome performance. Lenstip.com stated that this lens competes against the zeiss 135mm and canon 135mm.
