  • 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
  • There is the EM5II with the articulated screen. Actually, there is some improvement in sharpness and highlight clipping. There is one big difference: while I feel (but have difficulty to prove it) ...
  • Replied in Sorry Henry.
    trog is right. I should have remembered my Wittgenstein. "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent ." I second that! And I do like the shots, Henry. Thanks for sharing. Peter.
  • this lens has a bad reputation, you wouldn't win much over your zoom lenses which is also F2,8. I had a sigma 60mm, a very sharp lens with excellent bokeh, but AF hunted quite a lot, at least on my ...
  • Replied in Soft 100-300?
    Great shots indeed! But sadly they are very soft: even at this small viewing size the feathers are all mushy. Did you crop a lot (noise in the OOF areas!) or is it the lens? Peter.
  • it is the girl. My compliments to her and the photographer. Peter.
  • Replied in Sony FF?
    I read that you don't like DSLR style cameras, but speaking about sensors: the Sony A7 is said to show a very pleasant roll off. And I don't think posterization is an issue in portraits. Plus you ...
  • I don't think it will be a top seller, if it doesn't have one big or several smaller features that stand out. Look at the EM5II with it's 40+ MP mode - even if it is hardly ever usable, it is ...
  • I don't have a negative obsession with plastic: my G1 survived being dropped from 8 feet on stones and from 5 feeet on a street in still working but not unscathed condition. According to my taste ...
  • It very much looks as if Panasonic will give the G7 the dated (dpreview)16MP sensor, now that many people find a new sensor is over due. They did the same with the GH3 sensor in the G6. What could ...
  • Replied in Samyang 12 F2
    is suppposed to be a very sharp lens; it is reported to be soft in the corners with APSc sensors, but on MFT this should not be a problem. See http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55632035 Peter.
