photofan1986: Images look good, for sure, but I see that as an amateur photographer, I really don't want a über-high megapixel camera.

@ FodgeandDurn
Certainly, but what can be considered as "acceptable" within the DOF limits is subjective, and the higher the resolution, the lower the threshold of tolerance would be, imo.

@ DaveE1
I understand that, and I really enjoyed getting to 16 megapixels, up from the first 6 megapixel serious camera I had, but seeing those samples, I realize how difficult it is getting a meaningfully usable image with a full frame high resolution camera. The samples taken at high apertures display way too shallow DOF, and once you stop down too much, you get into diffraction territory.
What I mean is that to enjoy the resolution advantage, you really have to shoot carefully, i.e.: excellent lens, stopped down, not too much, no camera movement, perfect focus... In everyday use, I don't need that.

No autofocus, but out-of-focus :)

Ok, now we have cameras with great dynamic range and huge resololution, we can finally use lenses like this one.

I said 14" :P

I'm impressed! This Sigma lens is really something. What? What Nikon? Ah yes, the camera is ok.

Simon97: Not crazy about the JPEGs. The noise reduction seems aggressive. perhaps there is a setting to reduce it. In the library shot you can see the mottled look around detail edges. It is better to let a little noise show through rather than screw up the pic. Would have hoped for better noise performance from this sensor.

You can select noise reduction levels from -5 to +5. On my GM1, I use the -3 setting and much prefer the results.

In reply to:

ozturert: Add AF microadjustment (Canon style), give us pancakes like Canon did, give us smaller f2.8 zooms.
I don't mind about the "plastic" feeling, because overall D5500 is an excellent camera.

Yes, no microadjustments, tiny tunnel viewfinder, one dial only control, all plastic build...Nobody will confuse this with a higher-end body. Yet, it has a very good sensor, which will almost certainly be underexploited by cheap kit lenses used by soccer moms. There is a big market for this kind of users.

AKH: Those high ISO images, sorry for saying it, beats the crap out of every micro 4/3 camera on the planet and that together with better IQ, is one of the reasons why there is still a market for those relatively cheap DSLRs.

Who cares? Micro 4/3 image quality is good enough, and better than the vast mojority of photographers. Oh and it's much smaller too :D

You're kidding, right? It's like saying the new Fiat Panda will make the Lexus Ls prices go down.

This is getting ridiculous. But I guess that if people will buy it, then why not try making some money on it.

In reply to:

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.
