On Bang for the Buck: Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Review article (575 comments in total)
In reply to:

Beat Traveller: Geez... it's going to be harder to improve on these cameras soon...

I would suggest, : better sensor, on/off switch and grip

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 II: What you need to know article (139 comments in total)

As this camera does a lot things right lets concentrate on my TOP NEGATIVES :D

1) no new sensor
2) awkward on/off switch placement ( typical for few Oly bodies)
3) EVF in the middle (not as good for right eye shooter, but I guess good for minority)
4) poor grip (needing additional cost and bulk of the grip)

for me the 2) is most significant- I hold camera with my right hand, so I need left hand to switch it on?

If I spoiled a day for an Oly supporter, I am sincerely sorry :)

On Crazy 8: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 sample gallery article (107 comments in total)

Nice gallery. New sensors from panasonic have better colour (~Canon), less contrast (than Oly).I like them.

Just wondering why a picture marked as RAW in a "filmstrip" is actually OOC Jpeg?

Where automatic playback function gone?

Cheers,
rado

So by the time Canon will be able to incorporate EVF into the body, Sony will be announcing RX10 mark IV...

raydream: somehow I wished for a
1) Olympus interface
2) Panasonic 4k video
3) GX8 body style
4) Olympus EM style folding LCD
5) Olympus 5 axis IBIS

it already has GX8 body style

drivecancel: I bought a Fujifilm X100 used and upgraded it to FW 2.0 instead of buying an RX100, looking at the studio tests I made the right choice! (had to use X100S results)

You should not compare the cameras just based on the fact that both have one X and number 100 in their names

I bet my bum that this camera will be reviewed at 90- 92% (clear Gold Award sprinkled with a Platinum dust)

Nice video, even shooting mostly with sony, I like G7 x better than Rx100 series for various reasons, but main ones are: color and touchscreen. Very nice camera indeed.

radissimo: I bet that if they would make Q just with the M mount, it would sell EVEN BETTER that with this, althought likely great lens...

That's right, but this body with a M-mount is what a majority of people would prefer and buy.

jiijiiviivii: Why would any NORMAL person pay that much money for this?

I like LEICA company.
They just make 90% people happy realising how much cheaper and capable cameras they own
10% will start to doubt

In reply to:

carphil: As far as I'm concerned, it's not a camera if it doesn't have a somewhat accurate optical viewfinder, Leica or not. The human eye is a much better judge of what is being seen than a computer chip. Why would I want a close video approximation of reality when I have it right in front of me. Over ninety nine percent of todays cameras are merely computerized image recorders with too many buttons and controls. I'll take ANY Leica rangefinder (with all their faults) over any of todays over-computerized offerings. If overpaying is the price I have to pay, then so be it. Furthermore, who cares what the camera sounds or looks like, it's the image that counts.

I would suggest to put film just behind the eyeball then

rds: Leicas, sadly, have become bling, status symbols, Christmas gifts Mick Jagger gives his posse. *** You won't become Cartier-Bresson by getting a Leica, and photography is not and never has been about the tool. It's about being there and seeing. If C-B were around today he'd use an iPhone or a GoPro.

Last night H-C-B told me in my dream, that he would not use Leica Q (he knew about the announcement suprisingly!) and he would use Fuji X-E2 with primes.
I wanted to ask why not digital Leica, but he dissapeared :(

In reply to:

RichRMA: I don't know. In one sentence, you attack the T for having a finger-print magnet for an LCD, in another, you talk about using the Q's touch screen. Is the Q screen somehow immune to prints or is it better because it's a smaller target (unlikely to smudge it just by holding the camera?).

The difference is that you don't have to use it at all on Q=no smudges

RE: SILVER award

I think for DPR team having higher expectations of recent cameras is only good for them and the readers.
We are tired of all GOLD awards and I think the award is starting to make more sense (e.g in this case silver award for incremental step).

Keep a great work!

So Software update only... :(

Direct link | Posted on Mar 11, 2015 at 09:13 UTC as 37th comment

the key question is:
ZA Distagon or ZM Distagon 35/1.4?

-my prediction is:
ZA: sharper in corners and less CA, BIG
ZM: smaller, more character or "mojo" :) in OOF areas, still plenty sharp (I own one and is superb on A7 and A7s), if price of ZA falls I am eager to compare.
Any thoughts?
