Very nice picture. And fantastic lens too. Oh and the camera also. And kudos to the photographer ;)

jhinkey: It will all depend on how good this lens is compared to the Oly. If it's optically not as good, then for me OIS likely won't be worth it.
The Pany has one aspheric, but no ED-like glass while the Oly has no aspherics and two ED glass elements. I can handle CA, but lack of sharpness off-center is not attractive to me.

Though I own the 42.5/1.2 already (fantastic lens), this f/1.8 version is attractive due to the small size (like the Oly), but still having OIS (which the Oly does not).

Perhaps this means the GX7 will be the only Pany camera ever to have IBIS - shame . . .

@ MayaTlab0
Had a very similar experience with Canon. In fact, I had much better luck with µ43.

Tiny and inconspicuous: just how I like them :D

Zvonimir Tosic: Now, this is a beautiful camera. And fantastic value for money.
It seems Ricoh was preparing all the best announcements for the CP+.

Good value, I agree, but the aesthetics are subjective to say the least.

In reply to:

cainn24: Still no fully electronic shutter for properly silent shooting? Still no continuous shooting when using 0-sec anti-shock (aka EFCS)?

FAIL

Would you not also like a new sensor with your firmware update?

Fatalfury: Is it just me, but seems like the high ISO performance has improved greatly, check the studio comparison tool.

Ugh, I don't see anything special (?).

In reply to:

Snikt228: It's only a tiny fraction smaller than the Sony A5100 and very near the Sony a6000 which are both APS-C 24MP. Seems like it's time to ditch that old M 4/3?

Yeah, give me the same high quality compact lens system, and then we'll be talking. Until then, Sony? No thanks!

On Panasonic reveals Lumix DMC-GF7 with tilting LCD article (78 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kim Letkeman: The comments here seem to presume that this is a cheaper GM1, but I suspect that the GF6 sensor is present in the GF7 and that's why it is so cheap. It is also no GM1 based on that.

And why on God's green earth did Panasonic prioritize a GF7 to join the GM1, GM5 and LX100 in their small compact harem instead of the G7, which is part of a line that is unique in all of m4/3 for brilliant ergonomics?

There was a review posted on the French site les numeriques that states that the camera uses the new sensor.

In reply to:

nerd2: RX100III is more compact, has much faster lens (even in equivalence), and has better ISO capability due to the BSI sensor.

And it is slightly more expensive...or?

Cane: Another m43 with that 16 mp sensor. Innovative.

I guess people don't need much more to print a big poster of their cat or latest holiday pics. 16mpix is all anyone (non professional) would ever need.

How about build quality? Is it made out of magnesium alloy, like the GM1/5?

That's the price of the lens alone :D

In reply to:

Luego: DPR can you confirm the fastest mechanical shutter speed of 1/500 sec. , while the electronic shutter is activated from 1/500 to 1/16000 sec ?

If true, then the GF7 would not be suitable for shooting fast moving subjects.

I shot fast running dogs with my GM1 and I must say that I didn't miss the faster shutter. As long as you don't pan extremely quicky, you should not get in trouble. On the other hand, the shutter is extremely quiet and totally shutter-shockless.

In reply to:

Daniel Lauring: Still the same lame electronic only shutter and dismally slow flash sync speed? At least there is a reason to not have a hotshoe this time.

It's not an electronic only shutter, but a first curtain electronic shutter. And it's immune to shutter shock :D

f/8, 1/1000, 1250 ISO. Really?

In reply to:

LBJ2: "which offers a fast maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its zoom range"

Applying the crop factor, is this new lens really an equivalent f2.8 "throughout its zoom range" or is it really equivalent to 24-83mm f4.2 ?

2.8 is 2.8 as far as light gathering capability goes.

On Nikon D5500 adds touchscreen and flat picture profile article (213 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Looks mighty competitive with the Canon 7D MKII for half the price. I will give up the extra burst rate to gain the swivel touch screen and enough money to buy a few lenses.

Is this a joke? The only thing in common is that they are both DSLRs. The Canon is a professional APS-C camera with fantastic controls, build quality, speed, autofocus and viewfinder. This Nikon is a entry-level one dial plasticky DSLR aimed at the soccer mom with average burst rate, autofocus, and a tiny viewfinder. Really, don't see your point.
