On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S First Impressions Review (327 comments in total)

Hmmm ... I see a window open for Olympus this year. If they step up their game regarding video this could be very interesting, indeed. ;-)
Who will go back to external stabilization when the internal ones have become so good? Who will be prepared to shell out so much money for such a weird camera?

The GH5S has the better lowlight performance. Why couldn't Panasonic have included this sensor into the G9? Oh, wait, IBIS is missing. Bummer ...

Weird stuff going on with Panasonic right now ...

I don't know about you, but I'd rather buy a notebook that I can open and upgrade. Yeah, the flexibility of the Surfaces is fine, but almost everything is glued together. Repairing such a thing must be a hoot ...

Tomasz_Wk: Going back to basics. At least the ‘Choice of the year’ is not a Sony. ;-)

I'd rather buy an 'ancient' Sony a7. Used ones are really cheap nowadays. Oh, and you can adapt old lenses to that thing. ;-)

For 3000 bucks I would rather buy a Sony RX10 IV and have 1000 bucks left, and even that price for the Sony is steep. Granted, it's not quite the same but at least you would get your money's worth even with that expensive Sony.

Hmmm ... putting a converter on a Sigma 135/1.8 in order to have 200/1.8 might be more useful (and less costly). Maybe even use a Speedbooster? I mean, come on, 3000 bucks for a 200/2.8 is insane, and spending an additional 600 bucks for a converter?

Looking at the G9 specs, I wonder what Panasonic will do with the GH line? Seems kinda redundant now, if you ask me ...

Woohoo! My G81 (aka G80, G85) cost 600 bucks. Would I drop 1000 bucks more? Not in this life ... ;-)
Maybe Panasonic got video AF right this time.

More like: Not the A7R III claims that high dynamic range, but its marketing guys.

If a camera can create fake details, will pictures then ever be trustworthy to be used for serious media stuff? Who is to regulate that, and how? Will these pics be eligible for contests?

On article What you need to know about Sony's a7R III (623 comments in total)

Hmmm ... one would think for so much money Sony could implement a flip-out screen instead of a flip-up one. Even the 9 year old Panasonic G1 had one. Sorry, Sony, I don't get it. How about touch? Has it been fully implemented now? We're living in 2017, ya know ...

I just wanted to be sarcastic.

Canon invested so much money in a bright lens, so there's no money left. ;-)

Wow, Canon, another yawn-fest! Hopefully, we will see a dust-proof Panasonic LX200 soon.

On article Shooting with a used DSLR kit that cost me just $80 (284 comments in total)

You don't need to go way back: even a used Panasonic GM1 is inexpensive. Unfortunately, without an EVF, the display is hard to see in bright sunlight.

Auke B van der Weide: regarding traveling light with only one (wheaterproof) camera+lens it is hard to think anything better then the OM-D EM1 m2 + 12-100/f4. Yes it is 3000euro/dollar but who's counting :). D850+24-120/f4 seems also very tempting.... but even more expensive and heavier and bigger etc. I have had a RX100 and RX10 (both m1) but it seems to me 1" inch sensor fall short in dynamic range and depth of field. I've sold both and will perhaps buy back a RX100m3, just to have a pocketable camera, otherwise the OM-D EM1m2 has become my new walkaround favourite.

If you want lightweight, the Panasonic Lumix ZS100 aka TZ101 might fit the bill. Unfortunately, the lens is quite dark when zoomed in (f/5.9) and zoom is only 10x. But for that form factor the package is quite good:

The Squire: Right, now I just need to see a new Panasonic superzoom with the GH5 processor and codecs, plz.

The FZ2000 already has worse image quality compared with the FZ1000. I don't need to see even worse. Can you imagine how big the camera would be, sporting 24-600 mm range and a 4/3 sensor?
