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
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
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?
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?
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
Hopefully Leica will make an interchangeable version of both the Q camera and the 28mm summilux. And of course other Q lenses: 50mm , 90mm, 135mm etc.
I took a beautiful portrait of a face of a lady friend of mine (the lady is so beautiful that it would have been difficult, even for me, that the portrait could be ugly - and no, I am not posting it). Then unsing photoshop I made it B & W. I like the black & white version more than the original.My point is that for certain type of photos (face portrait is my case, but there could be other cases), for certain type of photos black & white is better.However, I cannot afford the Leica monochrome and a Leica lens unless I mortgage my house, and then manage to escape my wife reaction.
it seems a very nice camera ..... I would buy it; but have the E M-5 and would not consider upgrading to the G7 because:- would use the G7 with 10mm, 14mm and 25mm, but would not mount the 75mm without ibis. - now my money needs to go to a tele (Kipon & Canon 200mm/2.8 L ?) then in a year or two will look for a new camera with ibis.
ChuckTa: I don't know any trees that stay perfectly still for 8 second, how does the new 40mp function work in that scenario?
take a picture of a wide landscape, not of a tree near you
Cipher: Some really nice upgrades to the original E-M5. The layout of the controls, EVF ,IBIS, wifi and electronic shutter are the biggest improvements. The 40MP hi-res mode is a bit too restrictive to be of real use. But why oh why didn't Olympus address the biggest weakness of m43 and add phase detect to the sensor. Why do Panasonic (DFD) and Olympus restrict their best focus system to one model?
well, in a sense wasn't E M-1 designed precisely to be able to use the 4/3 lenses?
AllOtherNamesTaken: These cameras would be so much more appealing with PDAF pixels (like Nikon 1-series).
Pretty much no excuse not to have PDAF built in as well these days, especially at $1000+.
Why do you think that PDAF is better than contrast only? contrast AF is becoming so fast that now "it can be used for sport"
phase AF hopefully will stay with E M-1 only (for anybody using the 4/3 lenses).It appears that contrast AF is getting faster and faster, and it doesn't need to hybrid it with phase (check the forum for some problem that it creates on E M-1 sometimes)
