  • Looking back at previous PanaLeica lenses, the 100-400mm and the 12mm 1.4 for example, how long did you wait after they were first announced until they shipped? I'm dying for the 8-18mm 2.8-4.0. ...
  • The difference between a Cintiq on a good desktop workstation and ANY ipad is dramatically larger than any difference between the iPad and the iPad pro. The iPad can be a fantastic art tool, but it...

  • Replied in so buy a ff
    Pretty sure my accountant would say I'm doing my part and then some.
  • Replied in pay attention
    If Olympus was cranking out 4 amazing new lenses a month, I'd say, "Sure, make a whole line of f/1.0 lenses! A whole line of f/1.4 lenses, a line of 2.8 lenses, a line of compact but razor sharp ...
  • Replied in so buy a ff
    Sometimes I want shallow DOF and low light is important. Sometimes something, light, discrete with more DOF for street shooting and landscapes. Really, I'd be heartbroken if I had to give up either ...
  • Replied in OK, but...
    I brought up the FF thing. Blame me! Because I just don't see the need for f0.95 lenses on MFT except for a few special purposes. To me if you need that wide an aperture for light gathering or ...
  • Each unto his own. Leaving FF out of the equation, I'd prefer smaller, lighter, but still razor sharp lenses, and if that means they are f2.8 or f4.0 I'm happy with that. If you want giant, heavy, ...
  • I was just in a camera store and saw a nice condition 300mm f/4, the last version, for $600. Dramatically better lens for the price I think. Unless you need to back off to 80mm a lot. Even a 70-200 ...
  • Granted I have been pretty kind to my E-M1, but it hasn't had any problems and has done nothing but instill confidence in it's robustness. My E-M5 has gotten TONS of abuse with no problems. I've ...
  • Replied in FF is bigger
    But a MFT f1 is more like a FF 2.0, not 1.2 where DOF is concerned. So a fair comparison would be a 12mm f1 MFT compared to a 24mm 2.0. An EM1 with a 12mm f1 might be smaller than a Nikon D750 and ...
  • And they'd be big and expensive enough you might as well just buy full frame gear. I'm happy there are some wide aperture choices for MFT and I welcome some more, but really for me, the strength ...
  • Well, seeing this Leica I won't argue, I don't see Olympus making a similar lens any time soon. Bigger than the current 9-18mm variable aperture is fine, I'd expect it to be longer than the 9-18 ...
  • Looks like it'll take filters. Sure hope it's optically excellent, similar to the 7-14mm, I'd guess it will be. I MAY end up getting the 7-14 in the mean time. But, I rarely need 7mm, often like ...
  • How did I miss that?! Thanks for pointing that out. I'll probably end up buying it if it's optically excellent (which I guess it will be), but it's still pretty huge looking. Doesn't look much ...
  • Created discussion thread 8-16mm f4.0 pro?!
    Someone make this lens! The 9-18mm 4-5.6 Olympus is nice and small and light, but it's only so so optically, feels plastic and cheap for it's price. The Panasonic 7-14mm 4.0 is not small, no ...
  • This was one of the first lenses I bought after getting my first MFT camera, E-P1. There were no 25mm lenses native to MFT at that moment. With the adapter it's not small and it's just soft soft ...
  • A 17mm 1.4 wouldn't be all that huge, the 17mm 1.8 is very trim. A 1.2 would probably be a bit large given the size of Leicasonic 12mm 1.2 size, but it would be at least a bit smaller than the 12mm.
  • Yes!!!! I'd prefer a 8mm and a 10mm, 2.8 is fine really as long as they are razor sharp, have pro build (metal with the push/pull M/AF ring) and small. A 9mm would be fine too if they are only ...
  • The Leicasonic 12mm 1.4 is already large, heavy, excellent and available now. I'd rather see Olympus make a wider, top quality, but still small wide angle prime. A 8mm 2.8 or 4.0 would be ...
  • I don't think there are any LCD screens that come close to displaying Rec2020. But yes, P3 support would be something I'd want in any wide gamut monitor I'd be buying now. My understanding is P3 is...
