brownie314: I really don't get this product. It is totally "me too" in an already crowded market. Pentax (Ricoh) had something unique in the gr. Why not try a ff version of that bad boy? Love it/hate it - at least it would be different.

i was referring to the above comment on the GR

yes defiantly unique, no evf in 2016 even Panasonic has small compacts with an evf.

cgarrard: The best serious compact on the market- it and the GR.

its all about getting the photo. most of the time you cant even see the image in day light let alone nail critical focus, to me they are just hit and miss cameras.

Bernard Carns: So what was your first and last digital camera?

BC

still have the fz5 as well ,it still takes great images even on todays standards. and its quite fast as well.

got to make you think that if the sony can do a great job in 4k video with tracking the subject why cant it track in stills ? my 5 year old fz150 can track my young daughter sliding down a giant slippery slide straight towards me a without any problems even while zooming out. did you try zooming in and out with af tracking with the 5500 ?

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

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 ?
