Valentinian: and a TC 1.4 compatible with this lens only!
I am upset.Just waiting for LX100 reviews: if wide-angle distortions prove being well corrected, then I will sell my 10mm/2.8, 14mm/2.5 and 25mm/1.4, will buy the LX100 and keep the E M-5 with the 75mm (unfortunately w/out TC 1.4)- No I do not need the Huge Oly 40-150 -
yeah... it really makes sense not to make it compatible with the 75/1.8
and a TC 1.4 compatible with this lens only!
Upset seeing that Olympus answer to Samsung's impressive NX! is.... E-M1 firmware version 2.0 and silver body version !
Miron09: All SanDisk cards I ever used fell apart after a few months of usage. Samsung product much better. Never managed to break a Samsung card. I'd never spend so much money on such a product with such a short life span
your SanDisk cards fall apart? what do you do to them, bake them?
Valentinian: another month, and we'll see how the coming Panasonic LX8 will compare to this camera.competition is good...
well.... it took 3 months....
aandeg: They must have wanted to film a black camaro in a cave.

neil holmes: Spy meets and befriends simple person, spy gets said person to push the button for photo of forbidden military base......who gets charged???
Paparazzi outside celebrities place ......gets passing kid to climb tree and push shutter for pic in breach of law....who gets charged??
I believe that Mr. Slater owns the copyright, but not for the reason you say: copyright law is one thing; being charged for causing someone else to do something illegal is another completely different thing (IMO).Mr.Slater (IMO) owns the copyright for 4 reasons:1) he is the producer - went to the apes, set the equipment, 2) he turned on the camera, took some pictures - so initiated the process.3) after the ape took the camera, Mr. Slater allowed the ape to take hundred of pictures4) Mr. Slater postprocessed and edited the pictures.
"Copyright law states that works not originated by a human author can't support a copyright claim" The picture originated in the owner's camera; also, because he owns the camera and the memory card he also own whatever is in it. Wikipedia doesn't own it. 'a work owing its form to the forces of nature and lacking human authorship is not registrable.'But if he (presumably) edited the picture, then shouldn't his editing work be copyrightable?Also if he allowed the monkey to take pictures (or didn't stop it by taking the camera rightaway from the monkey) then he "used" the monkey as an assistant photographer...So the picture should be registrable.Anyway, a monkey is not a "force of nature": it is a living inteligent being, capable of this kind of behaviour..
ARB1: I wonder if I can just purchase the little red Leica sticker and put it on my Olympus OMD.
Nah.... I wouldn't do that to my good old E-M5
Biological_Viewfinder: This review is nothing new at all.
I have purchased Panasonic cameras because of DPR reviews, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED.
I'm never going to fall for it again.
pls give an example, with details
my longest m4/3 lens is the 75mm. I had the 75-300 but sold it waiting for a prime tele.Now, considering how much the Olympus 300/4 will cost (when....), and given the DPreview 82 score for this Pan. FZ1000, am wondering if I should buy this camera instead of waiting for an improbable accessible 300mm prime....
When Nikon released originally the system 1, were they trying to undermine the m4/3 ? or were they experimenting with the mirrorless system (without interfering with their APS-C ? In any case, Nikon's System 1 did not undermine the m4/3; however, they succeeded experimenting with the mirrorless system (and probably made a lot of money as well). So, now that the system 1 is showing its inherent high end limitation, is Nikon ready for a FF (or APS-C) mirrorless?
another month, and we'll see how the coming Panasonic LX8 will compare to this camera.competition is good...
Valentinian: is it correct to assume that a curved sensor should be more useful with wide angle lenses than with tele?
IMO some company will make a professional full size curved sensor ultrawide fixed lens camera
is it correct to assume that a curved sensor should be more useful with wide angle lenses than with tele?
Now as panasonic is about to release also the LX8, with 1" sensor and lens 24-90(equivalent)/F2-2.8, it would have been nice if this superzoom lens were 90-400 instead of overlapping with the LX8. (but that's just my opinion)
What is the competition ?Lumix LX-8 - same sensor size; 24-90mm (equivalent); F 2-2.8to be announced July 16
It will be very interesting reading DPR's comparison of the two cameras.
reginalddwight: Thank you for the additional photos now archived in the photo gallery.
I am impressed by the IQ and low light performance of this pocketable compact.
Could have fooled me that the photographer did not have fun taking these photos. The pictures look intimate and engaging.
Then , wait for July 16 for Panasonic announcement of Lumix LX8 which will be 24-90mm equivalent/F2-2.8 with the same size sensor as Sony RX100III.
