That wooden grip puts it into Hasselblad league

and that matching hand-polished Nikkor 55mm f1.2 is another proof

I am pretty sure not long that four arms will be foldable too. Then that will be truly small

Mike99999: Poor IQ as the sample gallery shows.

M43 was fun when top-of-the-line bodies were $600 and with fun little lenses like the 20/1.7 and 45/1.8. Those days are clearly over. You'd have to be a madman to dump your money into this system now.

If you need high-speed pro-level crop then the Nikon D500 is a phenomenal tool. This Panasonic is clearly out of its depth in this segment.

Where are all the pro-level crop lenses from Nikon? 17-55mm f2.8 is 13 years old.

Do people feel better after calling M3/4 sensor tiny?

Sony wanted badly to become number 2 player in the camera world. They may realise that pretty soon in Latin America ?

Osa25: DP review appears to need help with the editing, to avoid sliding into fake news territory.

Take this text:
"the 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary is a fast, high-quality prime for cropped-sensor Sony E-mount and M43 cameras."

Edit for accuracy, to:
"the 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary is a fast, high-quality prime DESIGNED PURELY for APS-C cropped-sensor Sony E-mount and WARMED-OVER WITH A MOUNT BUT NO SIZE REDUCTION FOR M43 cameras WHICH DONT UTILIZE THE FULL AREA OF THE LENS."

To be honest, you are just being pedantic.

Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: Great APS-C camera but can it more compact? Like RX100 V EVF.

1" is tiny and has smart phone IQ.... it is a funny thing to read

Now I am glad they didn't choose Contax brand name to ruin.

Impartiality is missing from the title.

It is a professional DSLR, not everyone needs a DSLR and not everyone needs a professional body. Don't push!

MyReality: If he is trying to show the differences in the "look" of the lenses, these pictures do not do this because the variables are not the same. He should use each lens under the same conditions.

Nah....That Russian is the most obvious one in terms of 'look' - swirly bokeh!
Minolta 100mm is just simply wonderful for portraits, 28mm is fun for some of the shots.

Thanks David for letting me know.

The Squire: Immediate thought is 1" sensor YEY! f4.0 lens BOO!

When you look at the equiv's it's collecting a bit more, but not much more, than f2.0 on a typical compact/phone sensor.

So low light, meh.

But for more usual outdoor daylight use (where Id expect to see this being used), the f-stops would be ramped up anyway, so no disadvantage.

The sensor is a factor too. Expect a much better lowlight performance for an 1" sensor than those found in phones.

This is the best travel camera I can think of!

Knowing is quite often insufficient. Don't you find Richard's writing excellent? :)

This 40mm is a smart lens!
