anksjdhv: This means an early announcement for a Godox version that will be compatible with all phones and will be 1/4th of the price. ;)

Hi Marko

Sorry I was commenting on the Godox camera app. As Profoto doesn't make an Android version of their app I haven't tried it.

When I worked in a studio we had multiple Profoto and Broncolor packs and heads plus mono lights, when I left we had just gotten in 3 of the B10 kits but noone I know of had yet tried to use them with a smartphone

If so I hope they've improved their camera app - it was godawful. I think we sold one of their original smartphone flashes in 12 months and it was only because we dropped the bottom out of the price

ProT3ch: I'm skeptical about this. Remember when Sony went into the Action Cam market. They made some nice cameras and then quietly forget about it. I have a feeling something like this will happen with drones as well. The drone market is highly competitive.

Maybe it will be just fine and they even release new Action Cams as well. One can hope.

erm... the new model is the 9 - GoPro releases a new model every year like clockwork

vscd: At first, reading the headline, I thought this is an awesome lens for the new S1R. But for MFT and the equivalence to FF it's only a mediocre Zoom. Please do this for FF! ;)

Ah third party. My Canon 16-35 and 1.4 definitely did not play together haha

out of curiosity, what 16-35 lens fits a teleconverter?

JosephScha: This makes me appreciate why a sports shooter might shoot with micro 4/3. The excellent Panasonic 200mm f/2.8 POWER OIS LEICA DG ELMARIT sells for $1697 last time I checked, and trust me it's got (I have not checked) 1/8 the weight of this monster lens.
I understand about equivalence, the 200mm f/2.8 on micro 4/3 does not have the same depth of field as 400mm f/2.8 on full frame. I think I'd still rather live with it. In fact, I think I'd buy a G9 and the 200mm f/2.8 (total at full price, about $3400 for both the body and that lens), be more mobile, and save $8,600.
I must confess: I already have a G9 (just recently acquired). But, I have "settled" for the 100-300mm II zoom.

Except here all we are comparing is "brightness" and the fact remains that for exposure f/2.8 is f/2.8. The same exposure settings will get you the same exposure regardless of sensor size. Bringing in depth of field or noise is just adding something that was never part of the discussion in the first place.

@Magnar - More in total but not more per square inch - the "brightness" is the same. If it were not you would have to tell your light meter your sensor size ;) I couldn't mount a MFT lens to a 35mm sensor as i don't have one - massive vignette aside the area of the sensor that actually received any light i suspect would be exposed at around f/2.8...

The 200 2.8 is just as bright as the 400 2.8......

rgs_45: Nice camera pack. Why can't Lowepro / Peak Design and other camera bag/backpack manufacturer make a smaller version of this camera backpack for M4/3 users to fit 2 Oly EM1 II or Pany GH5(s) with grip, the Pany 100-400 / Oly 300/4.0 and 2-4 other lenses the size of the Oly 12-100/4.0, extra accessories such as spare batteries, small memory case, flash, etc. I bet they can make one about half the size of this or a little bit bigger for the M4/3 gears mentioned. I would get one if they do.

Personally , this is more like my go to...

tried the protactic 350? The 450 will definitely do two gripped larger bodies, the 350 has a bit less depth which should be fine with the m43s ones
