For what I do, best I can do for my customers, is reasonable price v volume. Surely this is just ridiculous that a silly ordinary lens format is priced like that? Best sell more at a reduced margin than a few at an esoteric level.

Going medium format in 1990 was the worst thing I did for my photography. To heavy, to tired or lazy. Mamiya 645 kit. M43 is the best thing for my photography, light and convenient. No-one questions IQ over image impact for sales.

Shifty's very own DPR galleries speak volumes for his/her talent.

Dear wild light, best you show us some of your "20 plus years" of expertise, seems that you are a bit shy in 'yer gallery.

Maybe some do just a great service to the craft, without the need for over the top tech, money, and esoteric adulation. Maybe there are a whole lot of suckers out there that have distorted views of what it takes? There might even be folk that have enough talent to not require billions of pixels and fancy gear to create more than worthy images. I might just drag my mirrorless SWC903 out of hibernation in spite.

PKDanny: They should make AF lenses. Or. They are lazy!!

Wow! How does a 14, maybe even a 13 year old go out and rent a M43 set?

I would like to add that the Sigma Quattro's are not for lazy, consumer driven camera nerds, purporting to be photographers. Warts and all, they are tools for the discerning result driven photographer. No video is an asset I might add.

LWW: What a load of rubbish about lack of lenses, if you would all get off your sorry rear ends and create some 'image impact' and distract with that lofty ideal, you'll do just fine with what is already available.

I think my original comment got lost in more talk about lenses and their 'qualities'.
I'll still pursue image impact over quality any day, and if the viewer looks beyond the subjective, well one of us has missed the point.

loitokitok: What some of you guys with your oh so sarcastically crafted comments conveniently seem to forget is that nobody, not even Leica, is forcing you to buy this product. Take it or leave it and move on.

But I certainly applaud them for giving you a subject on which to practice your wit.

Surprised that you didn't respond with a hand written letter! Enough of these screens I would have thought.

Maybe a sort off file format where you need to post your files off to a commercial enterprise, sort of like film, is likely?

Got my 4 Quattro's for less than this, can't complain about them for IQ for what I expect of them.

Never mind the battery life, there's not too many forums I can bear with out running for a leak due to all the blurred water slo mo's.

On article Great Eight: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 review (540 comments in total)

No problems at all for me. No shutter shock, handles fine, good IQ, don't care what it looks like, just use the M, P, exposure comp and love the touch screen focus feature. Paid for itself the first time out with it and it resides happily in my bag with the 4 Sigma Quattro's that it shares the same battery with. Bliss!

I suspect you deal with enough dogs already. Shouldn't be too much of a problem having another snapping at your heels.

uzzy88: What's the point of having a small sensor with same aperture lenses than aps-c?...
m43 area is lower, they should push more the brightness of the lens.

They should be able to do longer zoom with higher sharpness and brightness than aps-c, as we see in the 1-inch compact camera market. This would be appealing for switching to m43 system.

Maybe Gucci could whip out a cheap but stylish effort?

One aspect of Sigma cameras I really enjoy, is how they manage to separate the camera nerds from the photographers - both on the forum and in the field.

I spent $5k on a 200 that has improved my photographs no end. A Honda 200 that is, off road bike, gets me to places unique and unseen by others.
