Zvonimir Tosic: Regarding lack of tilting screen: I see that this may be seen as a drawback. But lets think again, like guys at Pentax: at least it seems they think twice about every gizmo others introduce without a second thought. If a camera can be controlled comfortably from any distance via smartphone, which almost everyone has, and have a live preview too — then what's the point making a rugged, weather-proof camera that has a weakest part in its tilting screen while the screen substitute/extension is in your pocket? I don't say it's best solution, but is tilting screen any better?
the k7,k5 already streams live view hdmi out for studio work.hope the K3 remains the same ?
no evf, awkward for people that need reading glasses.
I hope it can hdmi live out, im sold if it can.
sorry for posting here, but what is going on with these forums, this is the only place I can post a complaint ? have updated every thing I can think of. I try to go to forums and nothing happens. if I turn off the connection the forum becomes displayed, any help sorry inconvenience.
if you look at the IR images it leaves all compact cameras for dead. 2400 lines. with comments like exceptional image quality.
what a pain in the a.....s i had decided on the x20 and now have to wait and look at the lf1. it looks like a great "little" beast. i have a xz1 with vf2 but it does not fit in a pocket. thanks panasonic been waiting a long time.
GodSpeaks: The EVF is a disappointment at only 200K.
the fz150 has the same evf, it shows a histagram and can easily show dof for manual focus. the lf1 should be great.
forpetessake: I'm not sure the lens on the long end is usable at all, it's equivalent to 1056mm f/40 in FF format. With such a dim lens even in best sunny day one has to use high ISO, slow shutter and will get a lot of noise and smeared action.
how do you figure f40?
just compared the lens to my xz1, looks identical to me .
im glad i kept my f3.
im only new to pro photography and you explained it very well, as this is what happens in the field. its all about preperation and simple lighting. and getting the job done. fancy setups and photoshop dont make you money getting it right incamera does.
Donald B: how come the lens say 2.8/4.5 ? wheres the constant 2.8 are people blind.
sorry guys just noticed as it is the same photo as the fz150 and would have to be twice the diamater to be 2.8 ?

jorepuusa: It´s great that professional photographers teach amateurs how to shoot. Then amateurs start taking pictures cheaply or pro bono and pros lose their jobs.Pros go to schools, four years photography there and then they buy expensive gear and use money to get clients. And then some of them teach amateurs in web which causes the profession to collapse, that has happened all over and photography is a dying profession.
what a funny comment. ive trained many a tradesman in my time and have been very happy for them to succeed or even take over my job and made my job easyer" that is success ". i never liked people that never passed on their skills in fear of losing their job position.
what is wrong with DPR cant you put the resolution of the Vf ? same as the g3 no figures. also would be nice if you could tell us weather the hdmi is playback only ? or live view !
from the comparision shots, im wondering if its all worth it anymore, as the focus points are all over the place. i find the IR test of their poster better.look at the top cameras k5 d800 5d111 xpro1 and look at different parts of the the test image and they all can win.
nice, even against k5 even at 12800.
can you live view with hdmi connected ? if so for how long.
this ticks all the right boxes. when can i get my hands on one.....
