Marcelobtp: One important thing to be noticed -4 ev focusing with a F2.0 lens, so only the 55 1.8 will take total advantage of this for now.

Do you still get AF via adapter? ....

On Panasonic announces Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7, and GM1 kit news story (277 comments in total)

Panasonic is really doing very well recently (except the 42.5 f/1.2, but we can just ignore it since we already have 45 f/1.8)

The recent releases of GM1 / GX7 / GH4 / 15 / 12-32 and the upcoming 35-100 are on the right path of m43; the true spirit of m43
in terms of pricing and portability

I hope we will see a 8mm pancake prime or 9-18mm from panasonic soon

Zoron: no built-in stabilization....so no for me.

I think OIS usually lower IQ or more affected by shutter shock
I am glad that this one does not have OIS as my GX7 already has :)

quangzizi: Again reading the comment section is the best way to lol. So many "experts" here claim that this is overpriced, yet none has seen the actual performance and comparison with the Fuji. If you look up on the web, there are some samples of the Pana and damn they are so sharp and so good even wide open. That bokeh and characteristics are of course "leica".

I was taken back a bit by the price, but looking through the specs. It is more complicated than the Fuji (14 e in 11 groups vs 11 e in 8 groups). It seems to be heavier because it is fully metal as other Leica lens should be (fuji is only barrel and mount metal). OIS is yeah first of its kind for this. Considering all that and the leica badge (it costs), it seems OK at the moment. If further test proves this a lemon then we will know - not now...

this is overpriced given DoF is same as 85 f/2.4 @ FF and Fujifilm XF56 is cheaper

In reply to:

jhinkey: OK Nikon, now you just have to make a 24/1.8 and then you can get on to more important matters:
16/2.8 AFS fisheye
20/2.8 AFS
45/2.8 AFS (compact please)
135/1.8AFS
400/5.6AFS VR
and then you'll get some of my cash.

I don't think you will see 135/1.8; it should be 135/2....

Babka08: I'm glad Canon chose to go 35mm f/2 with IS for the same money.

It's for video.......

Direct link | Posted on Jan 7, 2014 at 08:58 UTC

Spec-wise, it is even worse than fuji's one....except OIS

for $1600....it's better to get D610 + 85 f/1.8G
which is only ~USD $2000 in HK....

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1202 comments in total)
In reply to:

Timmbits: @DPR: I'm glad to see that you shot these with some other cameras for reference. however, you should add a few more in there, especially a wider selection of the higher-resolution cameras from Sony, Nikon, Samsung, Pentax, to keep the readership here happy... the best of each maker for reference in both APS and FF formats.

I think either do what they are doing now, GX7+EP5+5D3+NEX6
or publish the tool 1 month later with more cameras

which one do you prefer?
I prefer the current approach, at least it helps people/me to pick GX7

In reply to:

Paul Amyes: I was really ready to buy this until I got to no external mic input. Why oh why cripple the camera like this? I like the form factor very much. It was this or the EP5 and both have been crippled badly as a multimedia device. I hope BlackMagic gets its act together and ships as promised and then I'll buy one of the pocket cinemas and an EPL5 for the stills.

I think they leave it for the GH line;
it is already good to see FHD @ 60p and manual video control
and I agree that you can get an external audio recorder if needed

Too bad that ISO starts with 200, it'd be perfect camera if it starts from ISO 100...

but it is still better than GX1 (ISO 160 x 1/4000) given it has 1/8000 shutter

Well, it has ISO 125, at the expense of DR; you can do this in PP on any ISO 200 based camera, but it is more convenient for the camera to do it for you

IBIS, EVF + titable LCD, silent shutter, dual dial, HDR/Panorama/NFC/Wifi/built-in flash

this camera is the ultimate camera for travel so far!
I am getting this!

On Panasonic announces Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm F1.2 (again) news story (190 comments in total)

From Dof prespective; it will act like 85 f/2.4 on 35mm FF

a 6D + 85 f/1.8 will have shallower Dof
Also, IQ wise, 6D + 85 f/1.8 @ f/2.4 could be better than this lens

35mm FF still has it's value when shallow Dof is needed

On Panasonic unveils DMC-GF6 with Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities news story (53 comments in total)
In reply to:

Antonio Rojilla: So more or less a Sony NEX-3N clone with a worse sensor. Way to go Panasonic. The only thing they have is more lenses, but you know, most people buying this camera won't ever bother to put on it anything but the kit lens.

I think
- m43 focuses faster than NEX
- No 7mm fisheye
- SEL55210 w/ TC1.4 => does it has autofocus?

But I do agree Sony closes a lot of gap since the release of 10-16/35/PZ kit

Anyway, OMD is still the best m43 camera and I think even NEX6/7 can't match it

Direct link | Posted on Apr 9, 2013 at 08:49 UTC

I think the panny 42.5 f/1.2 will be expensive;
but I believe canon's 85 f/1.8 is much better than the panny's because of shallower DoF and its pricing

Well, but GX1 + 42.5 is still much smaller and lighter than 6D + 85 f/1.8
so it's a trade off
for portrait; FF is still the best system
for landscape; m43 is the way to go!

I am looking forward for Panasonic to create 20mm f/1.7 II with updated AF performance and a 12mm pancake

In reply to:

armanius: How many slow "normal" zooms do we need for m4/3? This is about 4 from Pany and about 4 from Oly now? Sigh ...

It is a kit lens; panasonic is not going to bundle a olympus kit lens on any G series cameras!

so, there are only 2 kit lenses from panasonic
PZ - high end pancake
the new 14-42 - low and kit lens

of course there are 2 more lenses in the same range:
14-45 - mid end lens
12-35 - high end lens

I actually agree that panasonic should combine 14-42 and 14-45 and offer a cheap but with 14-45 like IQ kit lens

Let's see if the new 14-42 kit is going to make the 14-45 discountinued

It is a kit lens! It is always good to have version II of kit lens as most people will own it, especially beginner
This is a good upgrade of the existing one
- smaller (easy to spot from the picture)
- lighter (160g -> 110g, almost 1/3 lighter)
- shorter (63mm -> 49mm)
- standard 46mm filter size
- IF
- 12 elements + 1 asph glasses -> 9 elements + 2 asph glasses
- Plastic Mount -> Metal mount
- Minimum focus: 0.3m -> 0.2m
- Color / finishing seem better than the old one

I think it is a good upgrade!!!!

I wonder who is going to spend $1000+ for the 2 new f/2.8 Lenses
I think it is more reasonable @ $600-$800 for both lenses....after all glasses it need is virtually the same as making f/5.6 lenses in FF

Direct link | Posted on Sep 28, 2012 at 07:41 UTC as 1st comment

35 f/1.8 is sweet!
it seems it is quite light and small (45mm in length only) and it has OSS where the 24mm Zeiss does not have

Price is another factor; $450 is very reasonble

and most importantly, it is all in black; not silver!
