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.
photofan1986: A full frame camera with a lens like this is like a porsche with 14" wheels.
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.
F16, 800 ISO...talk me about bad settings!
I really love this one!
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
earful: i just want it to be credible enough to help decrease the price of the panny fz1000. :)
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.
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 . . .
@ MayaTlab0Had 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.
cainn24: Still no fully electronic shutter for properly silent shooting? Still no continuous shooting when using 0-sec anti-shock (aka EFCS)?
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 (?).
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!
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.
