Are there "anything" to fix about that camera ? Even for previous version of it (D800) ?

Please Nikon, do something useful. For example; make 50mm F 1.4 FX lens and D810 combo price for 500€ for a few days :D

Yahoo bought it (success) but could make it social as instagram (fail) then made it awesome (great resolution) kept it free for 1TB space (wooow) and now for sale...

Hopefully who ever owns it, won't require another mail adress.. And actually, yahoo could keep it, I can pay up to 2,99€/Year for the excellent service of Flickr... No need to sell!

Meh... I own Lumix GM1, according to DPR (which is %90 truth, %10 editorial view) it has better Jpeg, raw and lowlight/HighISO performance.

Video is not as good, built quality is poorer (No weather sealing!) and better ergonomics (for big hands)... BUT GX8 can´t fit your pocket and many more...

No Thanks, please Panasonic; next GM camera with 4K, tilting screen (without hunch!) and a underwater housing (why not built in lens to the hausing! 35-100mm F 1.8-2.8 apeture and enables macros... who need tele underwater ? )

Suddenly you realize the importance of a tiny winy built-in pop-up flash!

On article Great Eight: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 review (526 comments in total)

I kinda buy the thing; because ergonomics are better for my big hands compare to GM1. But in the other hand; such huge body, yet small sensor! (old ass Leica M's carry a full frame sensor in smaller body!!!!)

And it has "that feature... this spec..." but they were not able to fit a small flash in to such bulk!!! (they could in GX7!!!)

Also that would be exotic to have an optional battery grip... Exotic I mean "Fantastic" side

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They did not mention the size of sensor... it is probably smaller than my cellphone, in A.D. 2016.

Ridiculous!

If same Sony cam will come with a hasselblad wood grip... Then yeah you'll be right. ;)

Nikon has to make an underwater housing for 18-50mm camera!
The best angles works underwater, bright beautiful lens, capable sensor combo!

Ben O Connor: It had to be F4 constantly to deserve "Leica" name on it! Seriously, too expensive for an ordinary tele...

I wished to own one... But I can't.

As a GM1 owner, this lens would be awkward on my cam. And Tele issues (focus tracking etc.) that many complains about...

In the other side; there is K-S2+sigma 50-500 (smilar F power) little bigger in size (yeah 100-400 is pocketable!!!!!!!) and similarly priced!!!

Just not sure on that lens

Link | Posted on Feb 23, 2016 at 08:22 UTC

Great move sigma! I used to own 30mm F 2.8 back in E-PM1 days.. Best street shooting angle! Not too wide not too Tele like... And now F 1.4 from sigma (affordable + high quality)! Can't wait.

Ben O Connor: Biggest difficulty in a long road is the first step! Now Pentax made that first step. I believe it will grow and remain in the market.

Kudos to Pentax

(PS. Dear pentax, please lower your K-S1 price with a prime kit! I really wanna own your product but I am a broke bloke! And I love my wife :) divorcing is not an option to me!)

Nice story Marc :)) thanks for the wishes

Ben O Connor: Congrats Panasonic! Now there are more GF cameras than Olympus PL series cameras!

Nothing else really!

The deal is; why new model name, while IT IS %100 SAME WITH ITS PREDECESSOR!!!

Just feels ridiculous

(PS. I own GM1 and love it!)

Yes, limited. Innovation wise!
