Drazen Stojcic Buntovnik: I'm puzzled as to what justifies the enormous cost. Their usual Roller series, which we've used for years, are made with 1600-2000 denier ballistic nylon. These are 840. Their other models also use the high-quality YKK zippers, have included rain covers, laptop sleeves, TSA locks and actually offer more features then the Echelon series. What's the catch??? The design is very average and I would be hard pressed to justify paying 800$ for a leather handle grip. Does. Not. Compute.
These bags are also excellent for transporting diamonds and other jewelry ;)
The G6 uses the same sensor as the G5 and the GH2, right? Panasonic's press release says "the new Venus Engine is attains high-performance signal processing with the advanced noise reduction system." I'm wondering to what extent image quality can be enhanced without changing the sensor. Any thoughts?
I love the G5; it handles great and produces great images but at about ISO 1600 noise starts to become an issue. If the G6 produces a one-stop equivalent advantage over the G5 in terms of noise I will definitely buy it.
forpetessake: People with small sensors seem to suffer from inferiority complex, otherwise how can one explain inability to understanding the simple laws of physics behind the equivalence (http://www.josephjamesphotography.com/equivalence/#1)
I don't really understand what everyone is so excited about. I used to own Canon FF. I sold it b/c I like MFT weight and portability. Both formats take great pictures, each has advantages. DOF is an issue if you like blurred backgrounds so if that is important to you, either shoot FF or else get very fast MFT lenses. No one is better than anyone else. Why all the fuss?
