When I read a preview on this little camera, I just knew it's what I've been waiting for as a handy little 2nd cam next to my 5D MkIII. So I got one before it had hit the shelf and took it to the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco. Similar to what you experienced during your tour, I was also very very pleased. There isn't much to add, except perhaps one little issue related to my fat fingers: I did take quite a number of involuntary pics due to the pronounced position of the shutter release button. The fact it came with a touch screen had no value to me, until I found out how usefull that feature is!
FloatingSpacer: From the review: "As stated earlier, the 20MP sensor in the G7 X Mark II is the same as its predecessor (and likely the same as that in Sony's RX100 III)"
Isn't this information completely wrong? The G7 X Mark II has a Digic 7 sensor - Canon's latest - and is the first camera to include one.
Or did I misunderstand something?
Digic 7 is the processor, not the sensor. cheers
Rob Sims: Can someone explain the practical use of this lens which isn't already well covered?
-With 5-axis IBIS stabiliser and already amazing high ISO available (hello Sony A7sII), surely the extra stop of light vs. a good F2.0 doesn't make sense for the weight, size, cost trade-off? (image quality still unknown) - Or if is it just for obscenely narrow DoF that this is marketed? Couldn't you just go lighter, smaller, and cheaper F2.0/200mm? (and perhaps also gain AF which is more or less required for Nikon/Canon users)
...honestly curious to know your thoughts.
@M Jesper, you got it. If people only ever bought stuff that made sense, the photo industry (and many others for that matter) would go bankrupt overnight!
Congrats Andy, splendid picture of one of my favourite places on Earth! My grandparents had a caravan on the Durdle Door camp site, I still love going there whenever I get the chance! I am equally impressed by your stamina & persistence. Well deserved.
Very impressive piece of photography Stephen, thanks for showing them!
Sean65: Is it DPR insisting photographers include a shot of their gear. I've lost count of the number of good edits spoilt by a gear shot.
A list would do fine, we all know what it looks like :-)
qaz111111: In fact, these landscapes are right up there with british cuisine and humor
But this one dilutes your previous comment. Or is this US humour?
qaz111111: If this was the only reason to read this site I would be done and regret having spent the time.
I can go along with this comment
Congratulations DxO Lab, finally you got there and included the NX. I had one of the first NX10's followed by the NX20 for the last year and I have written to your german office many times.....thanks!!
carpediem007: And still, no support for the Ricoh GXR... :-(
Not even their DNG files!
This means, I still can't correct (not even "manually"!) pictures taken with the GXR, as they aren't even displayed (recognized) by DxO...
When oh when will I finally be able to use DxO with the GXR / DNG files???
Same is true for Samsung NX. Also a niche camera...?? I have written to DxO many times, but they just ignore it. Meanwhile I have dropped the idea to purchase DxO.
