Just don't send the album to Mosul Iraq
Seeing ISIS going through that museum smashing 3000 year old artifacts with sledgehammers... Just awful.
lacikuss: I read at DXO that this camera can only resolve 9 MP with the most expensive olympus zoom and 12 MP with the best oly prime, why is that? BTW those best lenses are very expensive ones.
No it was answered long ago, lacikuss just doesn't accept the answer for some reason.
And no, kawika nui, you're wrong about your theory.
Cane: Are these lenses in Panasonic purple color?
Adjust your monitor if they appear as such.
jimrpdx: Is anyone else disturbed by the concept that the m4:3 group is working hard to put out multiple 30-50mm lenses? When you can spend under $100 to adapt a fast classic 28-50mm from anyone plus an adapter? Oh yeah it 'must' have AF and fancy coatings.. for studio work in controlled lighting. Hm.
Many of us take pictures of subjects that actually move. AF (with a good MF override) matters a great deal.
duckling: A bit of conspiracy theory:The 42.5/1.7 was obviously designed to kill the Olympus 45/1.8, one of the few M4/3 classics. Perhaps a revenge for Oly's 40-150/2.8 which buried Pana's 150/2.8 project.
I'm sure Olympus got a lot of sales with the 45mm. I am one of those. I don't need the new Panny but it's nice for new m43 to have a bit extra choice.
BamaPanda: I hope Dan finds his way through the complexity of the camera, and learns to appreciate it's abilities better. in reading the article it seems the benefits the camera offered were almost an agravation. I have to wonder how well Sony, Canon ..or Nikon might do packing all the features the EM5 MkII offers into a body, and still give the ability to set the camera up like it would be an extension of your hand in shooting.It just takes a bit of time to master all the advantages of the MkII. I hope Dan can eventually see the the advantage of that, and not the agravation.
Ha ha Thomas, yeah, that was my impression too. I was also disappointed by their EM5 II video, very light in relevant details we didn't know already.
Though to be fair, the ADD and Iphone demographics were well catered for in those recent EM5 II pieces. :)
I think someone is playing dumb.
Let me put it another way. If what you want lots and lots MPs then M43 is not for you. It's pointless trying to explain to you why you should get this camera. Just get Full Frame, Medium Format or a Nokia Lumia 1020. Those Lumias go for very cheap these days.
If you want a system where the lenses actually match or even exceed the MPs of the sensor as measured by DXOmarks then tough luck, no such camera/system exist. No matter how much you pay, DXOmarks will tell you you're not getting what you're paying for.
If you still don't get it then don't bother replying.
Check DXOmark again and find a lens that actually corresponds to the MP of the sensor. The very best lens can get close but it's always lower. Because DXOmark always test the lens and the camera/sensor at the same time.
Go ahead, check it yourself. Take some of the very best optics according DXOmarks and see for yourself.
The Zeiss Distagon? Not 36MP on D800. Close but not 16MP on a D4 either.
The FE 55mm on a A7R? Can't even crack the 30MP point. Put it on a A6000 and you're approaching m43 levels, despite the 24MP sensor to play with it.
You expect lenses to show more mp than the sensor can show?
Article is a mess. Sometimes it links to all the comments when the camera was first unveiled, other times just a handful of new comments
They take out the camera because it's weather-sealed... Then slap a non-weather-sealed lens on it.
bluevellet: While nice to have this format, DPR's priorities are strange.
They've already reviewed this camera, why waste 3 days to sort of re-review it again? They have a backlog of written reviews to finish. Get back to the office for some real work. :)
Possibly, but DPR swears it isn't.
But looks like they got a true Sony fan/representative in this guy with access to all the gear from the company. So they decide to do this whole video about the A6000? At least they got to show off the 70-200 F4, but still, it looks like a missed opportunity in terms of newer cameras, even those from Sony.
Masterbutch: Traded in my Sony a900 with the thought of buying a7, and ended up going with EM1. I am aware the a900 was an early "full frame" camera, but I have to say I prefer the images from the em1Also the handling of this camera is amazing, just makes you want to take pictures.Have the 12-40 and 40-150 pro lenses which are both pretty much tack sharp.Being an amateur I can't really comment on the depth of field issue that some comment on but in the real world I just don't get it, at f2.8 both these lenses give what I am looking for, with some latitude for operator error in focussing.Just ordered the 45mm 1.8 to round off the system for low light and extreme depth of field And all this along with a flash can fit in a small messenger bag, what a bonusJust blown away !
Wow. Why did you have an A900 in the first place? It's not a cheap piece of kit. I remember being tempted by the A850 at one time.
I would disagree with you that the EM1 IQ beats the A900. Maybe the Olympus JPEGs are more punchy, accessible and such, but you should, in theory, extract more RAW IQ from the A900 than the EM1, even if the Sony camera is a bit old now.
I also think the transition to the A900 and the A7 would have been easier in terms of interface and menus. They have a lot in common.
But who am I to argue with you? If you find the EM1 a better fit then so be it. :)
They could have used this time to finish the A7s review they promised so long ago. Either in written or video form. It looks less likely now.
Their backlogs of unfinished reviews and previews is quite extensive.
quezra: I am glad this DPR article achieved its main objective, which was to make the anti-Sony trolls melt down and nerd rage about having a Sony camera get praise, knowing 99% of the people watching it won't read their butbut complaints but just be impressed by the video. Good job! :D
Ha ha nicely put, captura.
While nice to have this format, DPR's priorities are strange.
tecnoworld: I'd like to see a similar test performed with samsung nx1.
They were shooting in more challenging conditions with the nx1.
PhotographyIsLifestyle: does this work with nikon d7100?
Of course. But it becomes a 75mm equivalent lens because of the crop factor.
huh huh huh huh huh huh
