Great. Missing Foveon/Sigma, very important benchmark!

Racing videos in bright sunlight with aperture between 9-11, when everything is in focus, are really awesome to judge autofocus performance! ...NOT.

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1201 comments in total)

Comparsion with older cameras is crucial. Older test scene was good enough, I think better (especially shaded things in box) and not so flat.

I think it´s a nice functional grip.
Hasselblad is now a very-expensive-grip making company.
I think I´ll make this grip myself for coming RX100ll and for saved money I´ll go for a very nice holiday to take some photos.

OMG, this small puppy is the best thing since GH2!
Exactly my dream camera. Full HD RAW, active M43 mount with any lens compatibility via adapters, affordable. Thank you Blackmagic, I´m in! Global shutter next year?:))

And next year DP4M with the same sensor and 75mm lens... Another $999 from each fan. And in 2015 new Foveon with doubled resolution but the same bugs and another slow DP serie again, no HD video of course, it´s too much work...
How about fixing bugs first, wide RAW support etc. and some invention...?

petr marek: OK, now make another one with M43 mount and I will buy it. Keep your fixed lens, I don´t need it, I can use my Leica Macro-Elmarit with adapter. And hundreds of other lenses...

Why not? You probably think everything Leica is too expensive...:) I must assure you it´s excellent lens for $800. If you want cheaper one, you can buy used one on Ebay for $650.
And hundreds of other lenses you can buy and use on M43 mount with adapter...

In reply to:

emircruz: without really telling me how it works..

Can someone school me about Faveon Sensors? What it's good and bad at?

too lazy to google

with enough light better IQ per pixel than any other camera with traditional sensor
not suitable for high ISO shooting, slow processing

But wait, who will buy those overpriced Canon "C" cameras???

Yes, re-branding is easier than hard-working on original inovations. Outselling good photographic name and tradition is an unforgivable sin. New Hasselblad - expensive grip-making company.
What would Victor Hasselblad say? Shot the CEO and get busy...!

...Dr. Hansen: “This new model is the result of meticulous engineering research, culminating in the creation of an unprecedented camera which underpins the Hasselblad mission to pioneer and produce supreme quality across all our products.”...

No, it´s NEX7 with added grip. You developed grip. An expensive one. I know it, you know it and God knows it...

I like clever and affordable cameras. Maximum quality for lowest possible price. GH2 or E-M5 represents clever David and Canon wants to be the big expensive Goliath... I believe in David...
$700 GH2 vs $3,500 5D Mlll

In reply to:

KGP: Νot so relevant, but... relevant:

Back in 2001, motorcycle manufacter Aprilia, comissioned world famous designer Philippe Starck to design an all-round motorcycle.

The result was this:

The ugliest, useless, non functional motorcycle in history! It was a total disaster, a remarkable commercial failure...

Cameras (and motorcyles) should be designed by people who knows that function and ergonomics counts more than form!

A VERY relevant comment ...

On CES 2012: Sigma Interview article (152 comments in total)

It´s obvious, that "doing everything by ourselves from scratch" is not good strategy to build progressive, reliable and affordable camera in time. It´s not good for Foveon. I can imagine, that in few years Sigma will have a new affordable camera, little better than SD1, but that time everybody will be shooting 4K video on Foveon type sensor from Panasonic or Fujifilm...

Canon EOS C was born with huge pomp and stayed alive only 3 hours... Until Scarlet was announced... I want to see one crazy person, who would buy Canon C instead of cheaper 4K RED :)
