  • Created discussion thread Formatt Hightech filters - lens cap?
    I recently got 3 Formatt Hightech Haze 2A filters for my Panasonic lens and have found that I can't use the stock lens cap anymore. I noticed that these filters have a very thin edge so the cap ...
  • I'm not sure I need to not because I don't want to know but because IQ has been good enough for me a long time ago and so whether or not the FF sensor is same, better or worst compared to my EM1 ...
  • Created discussion thread Image size and downscaling for EM1 MKII
    Does anyone know if choosing a lower resolution is simply a crop of the sensor or is it down sampling and possibly resulting in higher dynamic range and noise reduction?  IE the GH5s and Sony A7s ...
  • What about the Leica Q? It's not weather sealed but doesn't have the crazy MPs and would be nice for travel being all in one. Richoh, Fuji has a few nice models too.

  • Nice comparison and I think ultimately comes down to what your needs are.  And how many of us need a $3200 US fixed lens camera?  I certainly don't but I bought mine used and will likely buy the ...
  • I have both the PanLeica 25mm F1.4 and 42.5mm F1.2 Noticron.  Other than the aperture ring not working on my Olympus body, the AF works just fine. So I'm very pleased that the Panasonic lens work ...
  • I bought a 67mm and using step up ring for lens that use smaller filter sizes.  Both my Panasonic 25mm F1.4 and Voightlander F0.95 use different filter sizes.
  • Created discussion thread Formatt Hitech Haze 2A
    Just wanted to add another positive result with the Haze 2A filter to greatly reduce CA on my EM1 MKII. My Voightlander wide open is very bad for CA.  Excuse the poor subject but you can see the ...
  • Replied in Also...
    I should also add that the Voigtlander is not sharp at wide open. So if anything qualifies as a coke bottle...
  • @Josh - of course not. These are by in large infomercials but it's still nice to watch the video. To me it's still too much of an ad and I can see how some people would simply dismiss it. Which...

  • The Voigtlander 42.5mm F0.95 displays the same if not worst issue, $800 USD and doesn't even have AF. It's heavy, big and has nervous bokeh. To some, this would be ridiculous and unacceptable when ...
  • Really enjoyed the video. Nice break from the usual pixel peeping brick wall stuff.

  • I don't think sensor size would ultimately dictate final price.  The Leica is more expensive than the Sony RX1 and both have same sensor size.  And as one other poster have mentioned, since it's ...
  • Wouldn't micro contrast also be a function of the sensor? One comment I read frequently with u4/3 compared to FF and MF for that matter is that the larger formats have more micro contrast. So the...

  • Replied in Not hype
    I don't think it's hype.  I have the Voightlander 45mm F0.95 and I would say that the bokeh is nervous. Now that the 45mm F1.2 is out, I have seen many comparisons between the 2 along with the ...
