What's the point of these halfgrades? Who upgrades their phone ever 6 months?

BRPWS: 4k. Great. I would like to see a real survey from Dpreview or any of the other review sites to find out how many people are really interested in 4K video as a feature to be incorporated in a still camera.

4k recording will be standard on every camera in a few years time, but now is still too early. If you want 4k get the Panasonic GH4/G7. Video has never been a strong point on Fujifilm cameras. You should be able to tell looking at its design and controls that they have always focused on still photos.

UCSB: Without AF micro adjustment, this is just a frustrating waste of money. Anyone that owns any lenses or hopes to buy additional lenses in the future should not consider this camera. The front focusing example in the review is a perfect example of how every single one of your quality lenses will perform on this camera. The only question is just what will be the extent of the front/back focus errors ... one thing is clear at 24 MP, the focusing errors will be plainly visible.

Name a single entry level camera from a manufacturer that has AF micro adjustment.

Good to see that Canon is finally catching up.

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 article (430 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wallace Ross: I'm just curious but as an outsider to Micro Four Thirds do others not find it confusing keeping track of what cameras came when. Even for just one manufacturer.

There is a GX7,GF7 and now a G7 none of which share a form factor or necessary relate to each other other than the lens mount.

So if it has no letter it looks more like an SLR if it has a X its a mid grade small camera and if it has an F it's the low end model? And an H is the high end model?

@007peter there are only 3 product lines in that list.

@GRUBERND IBIS will still be in the GX8. Lens IS can't replace IBIS if lenses don't have it.

@liquidsquid Panasonic has already had IBIS with the GX7.

Mirfak: General quesion for users. If for technical reasons you had to choose between IBIS and all of the 4K functionality, which would you pick?

Both. They are not mutually exclusive.

Sony and Olympus mirrorless cameras have IBIS. Also Panasonic uses both lens IS and body IS (Panasonic GX7). Why remove it on this camera?

On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (368 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fogsprig: I don't think X-T10 would be a huge hit among Fuji lovers.
If I'm not wrong, those guys yearn X-Pro2. They asked for it for almost two years.

UPD Well, my E-M10 gets in OMD lineup as a strong entry-level one but it's not a specs-giant like E-P5 (X-E2 or X-Pro1 in Fuji world) from more awkward PEN series. That being said I may be wrong.

"If I'm not wrong, those guys yearn X-Pro2."

I'm pretty sure this camera isn't the replacement for the X-Pro 2.

In reply to:

QuarryCat: even smaller and lighter - and the X-T1 isn't really big and heavy - I don't think it is the right way for serious picture taking.
To small for my hands.

Not my style, to retro and to ugly.
I like the X-T1 a lot more - it is more Contax, more good propositions.

I don't see a big market for this camera.

Thank you for speaking on behalf of all photographers worldwide.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Looking at these extra large lenses compared to FF equvalents I believe at this point only the Nikon 1 system has held to the original promise of a portable system

@Androole

11-22 compared to the 9-18 is only a little bit larger but has an extra stop of dof equiv + IS and covers a larger sensor.

Olympus 17/1.8 is a better direct comparison to the 22/2 as it is 34mm and 35.2mm equiv (Panasonic 20/2.7 goes into the normal territory at 40mm equiv).

The Canon EOS M 22/2 and 11-22 are very compact considering they cover an APS-C sensor and are even smaller and cheaper than m43 lenses.

In reply to:

halfwaythere: Having just found a mint 50/1.8 mark 1 I'm happy Canon updated the mark 2 since it was a step backwards compared to the original.

I don't know why they haven't added IS for a few bucks extra since it would've made this a very nice lenses indeed.

@Adrien

Sony has a stabilised 35mm f/1.8 (52.5mm equiv)
Also Samsung has a stabilised 17mm f/1.8 (45mm equiv)

GKN: Looks promising - 7 blade aperture, small and light, but no IS .... hopefully the article will be updated shortly with the price

No IS is a good thing. Otherwise the price would be premium.
