On Panasonic announces Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7, and GM1 kit news story (277 comments in total)
In reply to:

radissimo: For a second I was thinking about this kit, but why not get Canon G x1 mark II with nice bright zoom lens, bigger sensor and for less?

@technic:
could you provide the links to quality tests?

p.s. I DON'T think that the low light performance will be much different between this Canon GX1 mkII and GM1 with this lens

In reply to:

Retzius: For those who are confused as to why this lens is relevant, compared to the Nikon equivalent it is smaller, lighter, and much cheaper, with equal to better optical performance.

It is not targeted at your average Dpreview brick wall shooter who examines his sensor for dust particles. It is targeted at a first time Dslr shooter with an intro level body who doesn't want to change lenses that often.

And they sell alot of these

RX10 much better IMHO-esp. the lens, I am dissapointed-soft, overexposed, P&S like

The main dealbreaker for me is that uncomfortable on/off switch, believe or not that was the reason why I sold my E-M5 :-(

In reply to:

EdHaady: A7 or X-T1?

A7 if you have money to buy it,best picture quality (high ISO , dunamic range), legacy lenses,
X-T1 if you need better handling, native lenses

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' news story (373 comments in total)

I found it hilarious that Dpreview posting rumors and "leaks" and at the same time they already have an camera in their hand, surely they will post preview or first look review at the day of announcement! ;-D

On Using third-party lenses on Sony Cyber-shot a7 / a7R article (469 comments in total)

I am sorry but I have to be very CRITICAL to this article:

1) seems like written by complete newbie to mirrorless/NEX cameras, who just discovered how peaking works
2) very poor lens selection, I would expect much better glass reviewed - not just crappy glass for few $$$ , C'Mon Barney you must have access to better glass!
3) main complain seems to be re: magnif. button placement, but half of the community knows that magnified view is best assigned to centre button AEL// AF/MF
4) I feel that shooting alt /legacy lenses is much more fun than portrait in this half-baked article!
I have learned nothing new at all

end of rant

In reply to:

Andy Crowe: "There's no such thing as a free lunch, it seems. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 offers a larger sensor than many of its big-sensor-small-camera competitors, but enters the market with only one lens designed to fit it without tipping over"

Surely all the pancake lenses (14mm, 17mm, 20mm and PZ14-42) would make perfectly good companions to this camera?

EXACTLY!- that's why you can buy additional grip which increases the height ..

Why Sony cannot introduce NEX with control dial aka NEX-6 and alpha menu aka RX100?

Sam Carriere: If Sony says "early September" for availability, my guess is next spring or early summer ... maybe.

On Panasonic launches Lumix DMC-XS3 slimline zoom compact news story (37 comments in total)

perhaps this is way to go with P&S : bring something unique to the table, in this case: size, why not? almost as slim as your mobile, with zoom and better control...

On DxOMark investigates Samsung NX cameras and lenses news story (56 comments in total)

Samsung problems in MY VIEW:
1) flange distance -too short for Leica M lenses
2) poor distributors- its a fraction of their income- less attention then real phot companies
3) lenses not made by 3rd party (look at the Fuji)
4) high ISO not great initially-e.g sensors were behind when they started (look at the SONY)

simple answer is : FF mirrorless :D
