Donald B: funny as, the other day I walked into a camera shop with a friend to look at the d750, took my em5 along for the ride. we took 2 shots in the store with both cameras, came home only to find the focus was miles out on the d750 and the em5 was razer sharp.

after using dslr for 10 years and m43 for 6months will never buy another dslr AF is just far superior for All lenses on mirror less

On Field Test: Sigma 19mm, 30mm and 60mm F2.8 DN lenses article (161 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zumzifero: Oddly enough, Lenstip site (which i've come to trust much more then DxO recently) has tested the 60mm on m4/3 finding out it's one of the most outstanding lenses for the system, on par with Voigtlander and Panaleica nocticron sharpnes wise, wide open, and so cutting off most of the light advantage of the other two. The review states the 60mm makes the tester believe in Santa again given the sub 200$ market price and putting it stright away from the "better then nothing" market niche this article cobtinuously point the sistem at. 19mm and 30mm are not as good.

I have this lens and the image quality is outstanding wide open, just amazing.

In reply to:

Donald B: no idea, just plug the camera into a large monitor via live hdmi, are these guys for real. 5 year old pentax cameras can do this , just finished shooting a large dance school and everyone gets to see the image before and after a shot. and its instant.

thats right, i have no use for tethering, theirs no point in profiling the colours, if they do not match the labs colour profile ?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (845 comments in total)
In reply to:

oldfogey: Either I'm blind or DPR has missed the most significant advance that this camera represents. The high ISO RAW files from the FZ-1000 are almost as good as the best m4/3 cameras, are significantly better than those of the Sony RX-10 and are dramatically better than those of the Nikon V3. If this really is the same 1" sensor that Sony put into the RX-10, Panasonic know something about signal processing that Sony/Nikon did not.
DPR's also claims that the Sony lens is sharper than the Panasonic's. If so the test images shot with the Sony must be a bit out of focus.

no your not blind , the first camera I put side by side was the pentax k3 at iso 6400 ,and it stacks up well, also wish dpr would answer my previous question ? its not real difficult.

In reply to:

SRHEdD: The eye opening on the new camera looks to be substantially smaller than the NEX6. Can you speak to that? To some of us wearing glasses, that's a concern.

I was in a shop yesterday playing with both and never picked up on that , in fact I couldn't tell the difference between the 2 as for evf res also.
