On article Design, looks and desire: Olympus does it again (395 comments in total)
In reply to:

racin06: How many articles is DPR going to do on the Pen-F? Really? IMO, the Pen-F is an ugly camera. Then again, I don't purchase cameras based upon aesthetics.

one doesn't have to be a troll to notice the different attitude Dpreview has for the Pen F and the GX8, which came up six months before the Pen F and it has water sealing, 4K which the Pen F doesn't....

In reply to:

FuhTeng: While people are fussing about all the PEN-F articles, can I ask for a GX8 review? I want to know how well the IBIS works with the Oly lenses, like the 12-40 and 40-150 Pros.

"...people are fussing about all the PEN-F..."
Actually it is Dpreview "fussing" about the Pen F article after article, and not reviewing the GX8, after its six months release, (and the GX8 includes water sealing, 4K, and the dfd like the GH4....)

the GX8 is splash and dustproof
it has a magnesium/aluminum body, cost at launch was comparable to the Pen F (But now it costs less).
Yet . according to DPReview, IT IS NOT mentioned as being competitive with the Pen F. (only Sony and Fujy are, according to DPrevew).

Wonder what happened between Panasonic and DPreview.....

DPREVIEW writes:
'the most direct competitors for the PEN-F are probably Sony's a6000 and Fujifilm's just-announced X-E2S - both of which are APS-C format cameras".

The only mention of the GX8 was that the Pen F uses the same sensor of the GX8.

funny, the set od D500 with 16-80mm F2.8E ED VR lens costs a couple of dollars more than buying them separatedly.

Does the lcd of the E PL7 allow tap to track a moving subject locked in continuous AF ?

paulfulper: I will never buy a Leica camera , ever....I don't understand why you have to spend mountains of money when there are 100s of cameras that give high quality photos for a fraction of the Leica cost . They might be more durable with a little extra quality but that's not important to me.

In the film era Leica made sense. Now it make sense only if the Leica buyer can afford to replace it with another Leica in a few years after the sensor etc technology will have improved significantly. This Leica SL has the best EVF and a competitive everything else; but for how many years can that be said?

This Leica EVF seems so good that all the Leica manual focus M lenses can be used like one could use them on the Leica M rangefinder

On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1492 comments in total)

wonder when an EVF like this Leica EVF will find its way in more affordable cameras. Then manual focus will be nice again

Sony (IMO) is taking advantage of the Nikon/Canon reluctance to do what Olympus did: Go full speed mirrorless (while still providing support for the owners of dslr lenses).
Canon and Nikon may become dinosaurs if Sony keeps producing great FF cameras, and if Canon & Nikon don't wake up end really jump into the mirrorless wagon

In reply to:

SeeRoy: I'm shocked that this lens won't work with my E-M5. OTOH I'm not in the market for newly manufactured antiques so I wouldn't buy it anyway. Happy.

hmm... why do you say that it will not work with the E-M5 ?
anyway... hope that the lens will be reviewed: it would be interesting to know if distortion etc are optical corrected....

how does it focus in the dark?
does it heat when doing 4K video?

On article Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 LM WR real-world samples (182 comments in total)

ok, ok... beautiful lens.... but... in mft we have the 75mm/f1.8 which is at least as good, costs way less and it is smaller and lighter.... and if your budget is tighter, then in mft you can use the Sigma 60mm/f2.8....

How does it compare with the Sigma 17-70 f 2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM ?
The Sigma was praised for its IQ; now it costs $399

Funny, interesting and great photos.
However, giving that 50% of marriages end in divorce, which one of the two spouses will wish in thirty years that he/she thru her/him down the cliff when they had a chance?
ok - that's my bad sense of humor, so I apologize....

the specs comparison table seems to show that the E M-10 lcd is the tilting type. Isn't it fully articulated?

In reply to:

DenWil: Wish it came with the 90 f2 installed. Wide is useless to me.

In my opinion maybe the M series of cameras and lenses are at a dead end. They can still sell them the same way they still sell the M7.
Instead, the Q is the starting point of a real modern digital Leica camera series.
They do need to develop an interchangeable Q type version and Q lenses
