Joel Benford: If very shallow focus was my great interest in life, MFT is not the system I'd buy into. So I'm not really sure who this is for.
Maybe it's for people who don't do shallow focus much, but when they need it they need it bad?
Are there people like that?
Or is for people who like a Leica badge...
@jennyrae. I see your point and it's valid. The problem is with people who cannot understand that other people have different views. The nokton .95 is a much better value-for-money lens than this panasonic 1.2. But the latter having OIS and AF would be a dream lens for GH3 videographers.
"So I'm not really sure who this is for."Dear friend, can't you really think of people who can use and enjoy the benefits of this lens? You mean that you saw the samples and your thoughts are 'what a waste of time and money'?
thx1138: The ISO 6400 is really mushy at least as a jpg. I would hope the RAW are vastly better.
Yes, it's the first thing I do when I saw samples like those here. I tried a 3200ISO printed ona laser printer. I asked from FastStone to print 1.2m X 0.8m and the A3 crop was amazing
Yanko Kitanov: Good lens as long as these shots are concerned, but nothing spectacular.
Why is there a subtle NR engaged at ISO100? Is it possible to switch it off and make less flat shots with a less plastic feel to the fine/low-contrast detail?
I had in my mind to write the exact same thing. About plastic feel, oise reduction but mainly the loss (or the feel of loss) of microcontrast
