In reply to:

Lab D: The 14-54 was a great lens. I don't know if the em1 will work well with it. This one may be a good alternative.

The 14-54+adapter is much longer and heavier than the 12-40. Look here:

MrTritium: A comparison with the Sony-Zeiss f4 16-70 :

- The Oly lens is 1 stop faster, but a same gen. APS-C sensor will perform slightly better than a m43 one. However the difference is less than stop if we compare OM-D vs NEX-7:
http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/(appareil1)/793%7C0/(brand)/Olympus/(appareil2)/736%7C0/(brand2)/Sony

- Both start at eq. 24mm, but the SZ goes to 105mm while the Oly stops at 80mm.

- Eq. depth of field should be slightly better with the Oly: f5.6 vs f6

- The SZ is smaller and lighter: 67mm x 75mm & 308g vs 70mm x 84mm & 382g

- The Oly isn't stabilized, but Oly's IBIS is excellent. SZ lens has OSS

- The Oly is splash/dust proof, I dunno about the SZ

Close call. If I had the money I think I would choose a Nex6/7+16-70 over an E-M1/5+12-40 for a slightly smaller and lighter package. But then there are more nice primes in m43 mount...

Don't feed the troll...

So Casio can put a 5 axis stabilisation on a 200$ p&s, but Nikon and Canon won't equip ANY of their cameras with one. Why? Same remark for Fuji and sony with their mirrorless cameras.

I find the Q10 handling excellent. It has much better physical controls and grip than the Nex-3n, GF5, E-PM2 & J3 despite being smaller. I'm glad they kept the same body :)

In reply to:

Den Sh: This isn't any more compact than X-E1 with kit zoom (and i'm not talking about primes here.) Why oh why would they not make the lens interchangeable. It would at least give some justification to the camera.

Does it have any stabilisation? It would be really useful with such a slow lens, especially at tele.

On Is this the new Leica 'Mini M'? article (370 comments in total)

Leica Mini M : 18-46mm f3.5-6.4
Canon G1X : 15-60mm f2.8-5.8. MUCH smaller lens.
Fuji X : 18-55mm f2.8-4. About the same size, excellent IQ.

Enough said.

MrTritium: 420g with battery?! The Nex-6 and X-E1 weigh only 350g, and the nex-3n 269g. Is this camera made of LEAD?

Have you EVER held an Nex-6 or and X-E1?! They definitely DON'T feel "cheap and plasticky"!!!

"It has a nice weight to it, it feels solid". I'm tired of hearing/reading this bullsh*t.

The X-E1 is also made of metal.

It has the same sensor than the LX7, but uses it differently. The resolutions are:
___|_____4:3_____|_____3:2_____|___16:9_____
LF1 | 4,000 x 3,000 | 4,000 x 2,672 | 4,000 x 2,248
LX7 | 3,648 x 2,736 | 3,776 x 2,520 | 3,968 x 2,232

- The LX7 only uses the center part of the sensor and always keeps the same diagonal when you change the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 3:2 or 16:9.

- The LF1 uses almost the whole sensor when set to 4:3, and removes upper and lower bands when you set it to 3:2 or 16:9.

In reply to:

MrTritium: What really matters here is the aperture vs focal length chart. How bright is the lens at 35mm, 50mm, 85mm?
On the the fuji XF1 and Sony RX100 the max aperture drops quickly as you zoom. I hope it's not the case on the LF1.

Where did you get the data? Can you just give us the numbers? I'll draw the curve ;)

In reply to:

tkbslc: I think people are making the wrong comparisons here. This is not a competitor to the G15, LX7, XZ-2, etc. This is a competitor to the S110. Basically it goes like, "Do you like the S110 but wish it had nearly double the zoom and a viewfinder?" or maybe even "Like the RX100, but willing to trade some high ISO performance for a bit more zoom and a viewfinder in a slimmer body?"

I get the feeling everyone thinks there should be one camera template that all companies follow. I'm glad we have options.

Not only the S110 & RX100, but also the P330 and XF1!

We now have 5 slim&light expert compact cameras. The Pana LF1, Sony RX100, Nikon P330, Canon S110 & Fuji XF1.

Size-wise they are very close to each other, and they all weight 190~250g :
http://camerasize.com/compact/#456,332,446,384,379,ha,f
http://camerasize.com/compact/#456,332,446,379,ha,t

Sensor sizes are RX100 > XF1 > LF1=S110=P330 .

They also all have one drawback : The max aperture drops quickly as you zoom. This is especially true for the XF1: F3.4@35mm et F4.2@50mm. Let's hope the LF1 will do better.
