princewolf: I rate the first picture +18.
For the same reason they use small girls in pr0n...
Seriously, this lens needs a open carry gun permit to be owned! :-)
Can the little clip on flash be used as a commander for RC m43 flashes?
Zvonimir Tosic: First the amazing GX7, now LX100. This is brilliant; real thinking outside the box.
You are right. Its not more innovative. Its lens s more innovative. The whole package is more advanced...
Pre-order already in.
Only tests I need to see -- noise at high ISO (if I can get to 3200, I'm good), bokeh (please be smooth!) and AF -- but Panny's experience in AF should mean this is fine.
This one will be worth to buy in Leica branding! :-)
AV Janus: 848 x 480?Anybody even films resolution this low these days?120fps at that res? now if it was 480 then great.
AV Janus: Whats the other catch with this e-shutter?There's got to be more than one...
Although no benefits in flash sync is pretty big
I knew the filter benefit but yes there is a catch 1/10 sec readout is definitely s l o w.Hope it will be better than this.

junk1: No auto focus - really? Who could ever focus it perfectly enough to take advantage of the lens...unless you have a 1:1 pixel display, you won't consistently get 1:1 focused images - you can't by definition since you can't see what you are doing! Will the AF system (contrast detection, or via pahse sensors on the imager) confirm once you have it focused?
You had a better OVF...
Wait wait wait ... they made a bigger iphone and one bigger still!?LOL! one of the main bastions of iPhone fanboys was that its easier to handle!
On the imaging side: Looks like Canikon will be the only ones not having phase detect on their sensors.And don't tell me they don't need it, cause I know you are right but that is only because they didn't innovate sht from LiveView...
AV Janus: Can't wait for that rubber focus ring to dry up and/or and become sticky from sweat.LOL! :-)
An I just read the Ming Theins review of this lens And he mentions his 55mm otus ring has become less grippy with use and that Zeiss is looking into it. Also from his text it looks that lens this sharp could use a better camera to manually focus with than crappy DSLR OVFs.To bad Canikon didn't ditch the mirror for at least one high end body.They'w ve could have done it like Pentax did.

Oh and the price...85-95$ for the full strap and plate + 20$ international shipping? DAMN...
How long until China copies this idea? After all it is just a ergonomic and elongated Arcaswiss plate with a loop.
I like the idea of a thin plate for this sling strap.It really did in the way.
The quick release is not a cool idea if you are backpacking or walking in Brazil or 50% of the interesting travel locations, though...

Cleaning his rifle.Deciding where to go hunting next Siberia, Ukraine, Syria or US
AV Janus: Brutal lens!I will scout the internet for a better price I but I plan on putting this baby on my E-M5 with speedbooster for a true 142mm f1.4 goodness!
It cannot... :-)/:-(But is balanced with portrait grip, a sharp even wide open upclose and at infinity.A good match for RJ lens turbo.It didnt suit me on 58mm f.12 FL, swirled up the bokeh IMO, and it became less contrasty and more hazy. To much PP to bring it all back and look nice.
Ah wait I already have a better combination:85mm f1.4 Samyang 300$ and a great reducer 100$ = Total 400$ for 121mm f1.0 goodnes
AV Janus: Great photos. Thanks for posting them.Love seeing the change people can make when they are given the opportunity.
Its funny how the post war "Wirtschaftswunder" never seems to take a lasting foothold in the far east and middle east. The US never seems to liberate them all the way till the end I guess. I guess they are not making the same mistakes like they did in Germany, where they just managed to stay and rebuild the country for 30-40yrs./irony ends/
Not to start any debate but nobody provided any "help"Everybody provided "loans" , "debt" and "strategic partners" in the same MO in use today, but running out of world to destroy...
