Zorro73: For gods sake, please admin, pleeaase would you put the following sentence under EVERY mft related article:
On microfourthirds systems is the aperture value f in terms of gathering light alway the same as on every other system!

You will always get the same shutter speeds with every system!
Thing that changes with crop is the aperture related depth of field.
Which means: an 25mm f1.7 mft lens is FF equivalent to an 50mm f1.7 lens (shutter speed related) and f3.4 depth of field related.

When you think of F numbers you should not only think of DoF. It's also about the amount of light. Yes, if you compare it to FF you would get the DoF of F3.4 (or something like that) but you would also need to increase your ISO 2 stops.
The latest FF sensors are around two stops better than latest MFT (which have not improved too much recently), or maybe even less.
Keep that in mind when comparing equiv aperture.

It is very sad the latest feature-rich flagship has a sensor from 2016.

This shows sensor development isn't keeping up with other formats. As a MFT user, I really hope this will be a success but I am not sure we will see many new MFT models.

DS HK: For Z system, what is the different between:
1) IBIS only (i.e. VR off);
2) both IBIS & VR enable;
3) VR only (disable IBIS)

joe_leads, While I can't think why you would want not to use both of them, as there are still many lenses without VR, I think it would also be really interesting to see how IBIS alone performs.

What does Equivalent mean in "24mm Equivalent", "55mm Equivalent", "200mm Equivalent" (in the case of a "full" frame camera)?

"Enthusiast mirrorless camera"... with a built-in grip? What have you been smoking?

Rensol: Look at hair edges blur!
Totally unnatural and disgusting. More than enough for 99% of users though but still far away from what regular larger sensor camera can do.
So leap forward? Maybe quantum leap forward then.
:)

Wow. Didn't notice that.
I think the border area between the hair and the blurred part in "portrait_ellie.jpeg" is just ridiculous.
Still, this is still a new thing and it may improve enough to cover 99% of photographic needs for most users.

I know I am not the first one to notice this but... no IBIS? Today?

Did Nikon share any F mount details to third party lens manufacturers? Sigma, Tamron and others have made superb F mount lenses...
If they can do the same thing again then this shortcoming article is just click bait.
I am no longer into FF cameras but don't find this mount issue worrying at all.
Am I wrong?

atodea: Wow, there is a huge interest in Nikon's first FF mirrorless. The same will probably happen when Canon's first FF mirrorless will be close to launch. They will probably be great, too.

I just hope they don't kill MFT cameras because I think they are becoming a great alternative, providing superb quality for the size/price.
The most demanding photographers might not accept the MFT compromise but I believe most photographers would be happy with MFT.

Myself, I sold my D800 a while ago and moved to Olympus EM5 and now Panasonic G9.

So, good luck Nikon, just please don't kill MFT :)

I get you point but I stick to "demanding" :)

While the larger sensor offers better low light performance, etc., IMHO today's MFT sensors offer good quality for most purposes. Up to ISO 800 images are very clean and you can use ISO 6400 for web pics. I think most people would find this good enough. Also, they evolve so at some point you can expect almost clean ISO 6400. And then, I really think MFT would be good enough (for amateurs and enthusiasts).

I hope I am not wrong as I spent a lot to move to MFT :))

The article claims Xiaomi is just starting to use dual cam. You need to edit the first paragraph.
I don't know all their models but at least last year's Mi A1 and this year's Note 5 Pro have dual cams.
It's amazing you could write something as ridiculous like Xiaomi joining the dual cam now.

atodea: The Panasonic G9 RAW test seems much sharper than the GH5, Olympus E-M1 MII and on par or even sharper than the Nikon D7500.
Is this true, is this test flawed or I am not getting something?

Thank you!

Dr_Jon, not sure what you are trying to point out. I think at high ISO the noise will be too big to compare sharpness. If you adjust ISO to 200, the G9 will seem so much sharper than the GH5 (e.g. look at the yellow paint tubes in both corners). It seems DPReview's Comparison Tool is useless.

Congrats on your new camera!

Thank you. So the comparison tool is flawed...

aris14: Let's make a top specs sports magazine, i.e A4 and A3 page size and double spread respectively, 135 gsm triple coated satin finish paper, best FM screen rasterized and finally transferred and printed in a top of the tops press machine.
Suppose that we have the same image shot with flagship cameras in 4/3, M43, APS-C and FF cams, which had the proper basic PP treatment.
How many of DPR members could spot and identify any difference..?

This article is not about comparing current flagships from different formats.
It simply shows that a micro 4/3 camera can take some nice sports pictures (not necessarily best possible today). This was not possible a while ago.
Micro 4/3 were just some nice cameras when you were travelling light. This is changing. I have not touched my D800 for two years (and decided to sell it).
BTW, please keep in mind how these pictures were taken: in a poorly lit college gym. Don't compare them with the latest NBA pics you might have seen in a magazine.

This is a different band. Freddie Mercury was the lead vocalist of Queen not Queens of the Stone Age. I cannot believe I need to write this.

Some pics look nice but some have very nervous bokeh while others are very soft. It is a shame to post pictures like this.

I am not sure what is this article trying to prove.
Is it about mobile phones being good enough for video (if used by a pro) or is it especially about the iPhone?

Because if it is about the iPhone and not just any other phone in that price range, the fact that there is no comparison available only leads me to believe that this is just another paid article. The title seems quite clear...
