  • As far as size/weight is concerned, the  P2,8/35-100 is nearer to the 75mm, also in price. And I think, resolution is on the same level as the O2,8/40-150. Peter
  • Take photos? 1 battery lasted about 100 exposures. Right now I even was considering leaving mirrorless altogether and get a Nikon D7200, which is good for 1200 exposures per battery (apart from ...
  • ... because of IQ and size. However, I sent my DP1M back after a week, but still miss it. Reasons: 1. Battery life - for a two day hike I would need at least 5 batteries. 2. The camera gets hot ...
  • no, not excellent - at elast my two samples and the one reviewd by Photozone are rather mediocre optically, though with very nice build quality. Peter
  • Replied in What I want
    It's not the shooting with 1 kg that bothers me, it is the carrying the lens around. Peter
  • Replied in What I want
    F4 70-200 IQ as good or better than the P 2,8/35-100 and O 2,8/40-150 weight about 400g TC 1,4 EUR/USD 1000 lens only, 1200 with TC This should be possible, Peter.
  • Yes, for ME it is too heavy to carry it around all the time . You are welcome to do so, of course. AND: yes, why can't we? Here is a niche for Panasonic! Half the weight is what I want, not ...
  • and might also be the financial incentive - it can use Canon EF glass with AF as fast as Canon bodies (with smart adapters). It is an obvious aggression on Canon territory and makes changing to ...
  • For me this lens is too heavy for a walk around lens (more than 800 g!), size is not so much the problem. For some isolated occasions it is too expensive for me, but at 600 EUR I might reconsider. ...
  • No doubt, this is a nice picture of a lovely girl, but what about it is typically Olympus? Peter.
  • DonParrot's remark made me watch a 40 min video of Tony N on light gathering, DOF and noise of different sensor sizes. And I have to say, he explained the physics very well. Of course he didn't go ...
  • Thanks. In fact, I like the second rendering better, too. I also took some pictures with the Panasonic 1,7/20 and got even warmer colors than in the 1st picture with the same processing. The first ...
  • Replied in No Brainer
    This is a common mistake. See Tony Northup's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KYvp8PrCFc Your arguments could be read many times here on this forum, when nearly everyone was defending the ...
  • Created discussions Color changes with f-stop
    When I use my Micro Nikkor 2,8/55mm I get rather natural colors  at F2,8-F5,6, stopping down to F8-F11 the color shifts to purple. The camera was a Panasonic G2. Can anyone explain this? Examples ...
  • there also is 1/16.000 s. If the GH4 EVF is better than the one in the GX7 (is it?), then there is another advantage to the G7. There also should be a silent mode and focus peaking, but how about IBIS?
  • If you process in LR or other developers using lens profiles, you don>'t see it. right except that firmware or PP correction of these distortions leads to reduced resolution; see: http://www.lensre ...
  • And in theary I agree to all! Still, even on my lowly sub 4k screen I see a difference between my DP1 pictures and the G2. Can't explain it really, perhaps it is a matter of psychology. Peter.
  • I develop my RAW files in Darktable without automatic correction, hoping to have even better edge sharpness for landscapes and the slightly wider angle of view.. But for straight lines near the ...
  • Wrong: take the P 20 F1,7: without distortion correction this lens is more like a 18mm fish-eye (ok, this is a little exaggerated). Still I use it for 80% of my pictures. Peter.
  • Certainly you chose versatility and opted for less size and weight. The D750 would have given better IQ ... Enjoy your new camera! Peter
