May be it's also wise to consider to increase a number of entries up to 2 per user?..

In reply to:

Mond: Primarily it is a ro-ro container ship. It is carrying containers that are driven onto the ship and lifted off - you can clearly see the containers on the foredeck. Sometimes, like all container ships, it will carry other cargo such as military equipment. Certainly not a ferry!

You are right, my mistake - it's RO-RO ship. But there is no RO-RO-container ship's class... These ships can also carry trucks, cars, machinery AND containers but it does not make them container ships automatically...

The presence of containers does not make a ship automatically a container ship... And you are right - it's RO-RO ship (and not ferry, my mistake...)

qwertyasdf: I hope the in body IS works well. Because seriously, Panasonic in lens OIS sucks.

Try to use 100-300mm at 250 handheld on a rolling ship w/o OIS and with and you'll be surprised it doesn't suck...

goshigoo: From Dof prespective; it will act like 85 f/2.4 on 35mm FF

a 6D + 85 f/1.8 will have shallower Dof
Also, IQ wise, 6D + 85 f/1.8 @ f/2.4 could be better than this lens

35mm FF still has it's value when shallow Dof is needed

To goshigoo: M43 still has it's value when DEEPER Dof is needed. Low light conditions, a group of people in two rows and no flash permitted - you understand what I'm talking about... So at least you can be sure everyone can be in focus...

In reply to:

Raist3d: The #1 feature that is catching my attention is the silent shooting mode. It's the reason why I have come to appreciate leaf shutter cameras. I know it has its limitations (max ISO 3200 and can have some tearing if you move) but it does make a difference in several situations.

Unfortunately silent shutter mode on my G5 has a minor rolling effect. Not a big deal but if I want to shot a sequence of frames for HDR it can be critical. So consider to use an advanced shooting technique in silent mode...

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Preview preview (178 comments in total)
In reply to:

Yehuda_: The statement about the LX7 lens being faster than the XZ-1 is not accurate.

The XZ-1 starts at F1.8@28mm (effective), reaches F2@60mm and by 90mm it's at F2.2.
The LX7 starts faster F1.4@24mm and reaches F2.3@90mm.
I don't know how fast it loses the F1.4.

Anyway this is really splitting hairs - Both cameras are much the same lens speed.

Regarding the much talked about Sony RX-100 - the lack of a hotshoe is a real deal killer imho. External flash bounced off the ceiling yields much cleaner, nicer, higher quality images(you can stay at ISO 100) allows much faster shooting, freezing kids running indoors.
This holds true regardless of your system (be it an LX7, CSC camera or the best DSLR).
I wrote a post about it in the past.
Google "xz-1 + yinyan cy20 = fun" and you'll see what I mean.

And another point - I wish people stop comparing the S100/RX100 to the XZ-1/LX7 cameras. The slow lens @ tele renders the S100 et al as very slow lensed cameras (with no external flash to compensate)

To nosnoop:
You would rather take your DSLR (preferably FF) for really shallow depth of field or portraits...

Has anybody tried to use MiniTT1/FlexTT5/AC3 set (let's say Nikon set and Nikon flashes) in manual mode with other brands cameras?
