rguil15: Why aren't there more f/4 constant zoom and telephoto lenses in the m 4/3 line up?
Bluevellet: You're just moving from one non-point to another now. Just give it a rest, next time if you don't have an intelligent answer to a question just don't answer.
I love this camera so far. It does everything I want, everything I need, and I don't find any of the cons to actually be cons for me. The EVF has not been a problem for me, especially because mine came with the little rubber extender cup. It's fantastic.
Naveed Akhtar: It's only real disadvantage is that "Fuji X-Trans sensor is damn good at higher ISO".I think DpReview should put this in the Cons section. Though, I know its not Pany's fault if Fuji knows how to really make sensors ;)
After sitting two months tossing between this one and Fuji XE-2, I just ordered Pany GX7! Whatever the small cons are, this camera is a level above the rest, as an overall package!
At one hand no camera is perfect; on the other you can't go wrong with any camera these days (Except Canon APSCs) ;)
I don't understand the appeal of the X-trans sensor. Aren't the greens in grass and whatnot still mushy? Is there still no simple efficient way to render the raw files?
RichRMAYou're asking why someone would want a small body and a large lens underneath an announcement for a 300mm f/4 lens? Think about that for a minute.
Bluevellet: You seem to be confusing what you "know" with what you "believe". I'd also point out that the plural of anecdote is not data. We have f/5.6 zooms, so your equivalency police point doesn't make much sense to me. "Who would want a 11.2 zoom"?
How could you possibly know what the demand is for a product? Saying there are already f/2.8 does nothing to address the lack of f/4 lenses. Canon and Nikon have f/2.8 zooms and they also have f/4 zooms, the two are not mutually exclusive.
Why aren't there more f/4 constant zoom and telephoto lenses in the m 4/3 line up?
No one can polish a turd like Leica can. What a waste of time.
I'm not sure that Vietnam was posed to invade Key West or the US anytime in the near future. Blind patriotic sounding nonsense is not patriotism.
