Is it normal that I did not notice the bug induced by firmware 1.4 on my E-P5?
Vladimir Vassilev: DPReview are making an excuse for Leica applying software corrections like most other mirrorless camera manufacturers. Wasn't Leica supposed to be like no other camera manufacturer?!? Wasn't Leica's uniqeness the reason for the ridiculously high prices they command?
Please, compare the Leica kit lens head to head with the ~$100 Canon EF-M 18-55 IS, which applies software corrections (abberation and vignetting) to JPEGs only and ONLY if you specifically tell the camera to do so in the menus. Unlike other mirrorless manufacturers Canon know how to make a decent kit lens and price it accordingly and so do Fuji.
Leica now follows in the footsteps of consumer electronics giant Sony... :) So much for the legendary brand name...
Dpreview is just being polite. And basically yes they are saying Leica is no different than any other manufacturer. This is enough to hurt, shouldn't it?
At start I noticed the lenses looked like Panasonic G lenses...
BSI as in BS inside? OMG.
digitac: Obliged to own and take shots with a phone or you can't give responses to some questions, and the result of the survey is not posted !!!!And this problem has been met by some other clients.Badly written survey, a waste of time.
onlooker: Questions 60 and 196 are missing "None of the above" option. BTW, I think Q.196 is the key to the survey - "Which of the following would you be prepared to pay DPREVIEW a small fee for?"
So i aborted my participation to the survey.
I am surprised : no whining about the absence of bokeh?
Joke aside, what's in front and on the left of the rover? Meteorites?
DxO reviews are the most comprehensive ones available, that's great news.
Just a comment.
In about every test methodology lenses are tested at (an unknown) close focusing distance only, which is frustrating since lense performance might vary significantly across the range of focusing distances from the closest up to infinity.
More and more we see lenses that test successfully but disappoint in the real world due to poor performance at infinity.So, imo if you had plans to include an appreciation of lens performance at infinity (other than sample shots) that would be another great improvement.
Very interesting! Thanks.
I think it's cool! Just the perfect (i.e., concise and sober) presentation that could lure me to reading the complete review of the camera even though I originally had no interest in it.
