Please enlighten me, why and when would anyone would want to "drag" the focus point on touchscreen? I have the super responsive GX8, and I've always used quick swipe gestures on the touchscreen while using the EVF, to quickly move the AF point to where I want. Never do I have to drag the AF point around.

Besides why would I want to drag the focus points to the left side of the screen while looking through the EVF, at the risk of poking my eye/face? Maybe I am missing something.

SigZero: Gosh! What was the idea to drag the focus point in touch-to-focus mode? No wonder it is not responsible as camera probably has to handle it as series of touches one-by-one. What would be the use of dragging focus that way in video?
Focus dragging is designed to be used with EVF, when touch-to-focus would be quite inconvenient.

SigZero, I really hope DPR answers your questions on Relative Touch AF, because I have the super "responsive" GX8 but I've never "dragged" AF points around whether using EVF or LCD either, so I just don't understand why DPR is pointing out a "weakness" that is not relevant in shooting. Unless´╝îwhat they are trying to say is, Touch AF is also slow when in Relative mode.

Great article, DPR!

You state, "Instead it benefits from a little hardware amplification to lift all the data you might want to use above the camera's noise floor."

What is the best maximum high ISO limit to set for this "little hardware amplification"?

Why didn't dpreview ask him why there hasn't been any firmware updates for several issues/annoyances that RX1(R)/RX100(M2) users have been asking? What an opportunity wasted? But then maybe it was asked but he just didn't respond?

What are the filter thread sizes of these lenses? I can't see any imprints from the shots here, are they not finalized yet?

The current generation of Nikon's PCE lenses have the limitation of not being able to rotate tilt and shift axis independently, unlike the Canon's. That's why I haven't purchased one yet, waiting for them to release an update.

Does the Samyang design allow independent tilt and shift axis rotation? If yes, I'm sold not because of IQ, but based on not wanting to pay $200-300 to Nikon Service Center each time when I need to change its direction of axis, since the Nikon PCE24 comes from the factory with the tilt/shift and rise/fall movements on opposite axis which can only be converted by a Nikon tech without voiding my 5-year warranty.

By the way, given Samyang's track record, I don't think IQ would be a concern at all.

Does anyone know the filter thread size of these two lenses?
