paulfulper: Is this sharper than Sony ff gm 100-400 ?

@ALEX_RAW If you can point me to a site or gallery, I'm really interested to see a real direct comparison with side by side sample images of someone cropping a full frame image shot at 400mm to match a m43 image shot at 800mm.

Memoochi: Maybe the person that trialled this lens would benefit from a photography 101 class.

To me, the processed 1000 pix shows what this lens can do in the right hands. There's no such things as unedited JPEG as all JPEG has each camera company's unique colour science and processing applied to it.

FWIW please do not judge quality base on these DPR images. It's a monster focal length to use and not easy to master, people have to differentiate between reviewer samples and samples shot by field photographers like Robin and Petr Bambousek.

Ian: To all the critics, I say, don't knock it to you've tried it with the Pixel 3. I played around with the beta and it was good, but the final version is pretty amazing based on what I'm seeing so far.

I have the pixel 1 and it is indeed quite something. I would say go try for yourself and see.

buzzbob: Pointless gimmick. Looks wildly unnatural. Another headline - grabbing marketing ploy. BTW night should look dark, not like a nastily edited daytime pic

Depends on how you view photography innit? what is natural and from what prespective? the human eye? the dog's eye? the fly's eye? Maybe google is showing us how 'robots' can view the world...?

I guess you do not own a pixel phone. I tried it on my pixel and it's looks pretty incredible for a phone camera.

duartix: Can someone please confirm these implementations are present in the Google Camera App?

I know there is early support for the APK in some developer Xiaomi MIUI Roms and some specific ports of the APK for a few phones, so you don't need a Pixel phone to get it.

it's available in pixel 1

I do hope the addition of sensor shift stabiliser will include pixel shift resolution in K1/K3 which i find very useful for still photography

I think this is a great way to test a camera and the photos are better than most sample gallery. Good job!

Sir Corey of Deane: With the ease of photo fakery, EVERY image on the Web can be questioned and thus the value of these blah blah blah awards, competitions etc.

I've seen what I consider better pics posted by 'ordinary' DPReview members.

Imagine a day when all photos are only displayed in RAW...... I'll give up looking at galleries and probably photography.

nokinonacynos: Looks like an amazing cam. However, I think MFT will continue to struggle. Once the cam is not pocketable, size becomes less of an advantage. People are realizing that a certain size is required for comfort and ergonomics. With a Pro lens, the package is similar to APC. So no advantage. In fact, the 25mm 1.2 is bigger, heavier and much more expensive than a 35mm f/2 for APC let alone a 50mm f/1.8 for FF.

This camera will have to sell on inherent qualities rather than size and weight.

WOW! the lack of moire and false colour is amazing. It's interesting to see how 4 different cameras can render high frequency patterns so differently especially in the illustrations. Thanks for highlighting.

I had the c7070/c8080... both are excellently built imaging machines. The lens on the c8080 is just incredible at that time and i still think the flip up and twist LCD on the c7070 is easier to use compare to side hinged type

Dave Deacon: Staging images is as good as finding something by chance that works. The result is what matters and these are fantastic fun images. I've watched and enjoyed many films/TV shows most of which were scripted.

Beautifully captured and me thinks photography is about everything under and beyond the sun. It's only the imagination that's limiting.

ironcam: I don't see the point of this thing. I have seen some samples and it looks really soft even when something is in focus.

FYI the original canon 1D is a 4MP camera and it's used for most things back then

It looks great indeed. Should consider a product placement in transformers 5 in a camera transforming robot.

PhotoHawk: Truly disappointing - nothing new here. It is the same Olympus strategy we've seen before. The same box, slightly different dials, same IQ, same sensor, the same performance. Do you want fries with this or do you want home fries.

Think back to the EP1, EP2, EP3, EPL1, EPL1s, EPL2, EPL3, EPM1, E600, E620,E5. All use the same sensor and pretty much have the same IQ. Different form factors but we don't even have that really in three models of OMD.

If someone can slam Canon for reusing the 18 MP sensor in many bodies then we should be critical of Olympus as well.

Now Fuji - thats exciting! They are moving the bar forward fast. And say what you want about Sony but clearly they are moving quicker as well.

I don't see panasonic or samsung beating the olympus in terms of IQ, its more like a match and that was panasonic playing catchup since the EM5 was launch before the GX7 or GM1. Are you just comparing them on paper? On paper every new release is better than the old but by how much? As for Fuji, granted their IQ has the edge, they're also playing catchup in terms of functions and features to EM1 and you gotta pay more to get that.
