PhotoUniverse: Does anyone else think that Trey Ratcliff is an annoying person?

I all I know I wouldn't put my name on this thing.

Do you guys really like this thing? It takes an eternity to open a raw file, the presets are amateurish at best, who needs this? I installed it tested on a couple of photos and deleted it. It's not even cheap to buy considering the little it does.

Totally agree

HowaboutRAW: The Davinator,

You're missing my point about FLAC versus WAV. The problem is the computer (CPU, not DAC) has to work more to play the FLAC files, and that process adds system noise. It's easy enough to hear the difference--though you or I may not call it noise.

It's not like WinZip, if you get a zipped file, you uncompress that before you use it for whatever purpose, while with FLAC the uncompressing is done at each playback.

hahahah

In the digital world there isn't noise unless we decimate, period.

Most of these Codecs are built in HW don't use a CPU so the difference in performance or heat or power is negligible. They don't have to "work more" if they are in HW. In any case the "CPU process" doesn't add any noise. If there is noise is due to the algorithm or some poetic license taken by the designer like reduced resolution, clipping, rate conversion and other tricks.

mcshan: Everything is fine with Panasonic's camera division. I think I will head to my local Service Merchandise, Montgomery Wards, Circuit City or CompUSA to pick up a new Panny to get great shots of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus when it comes to town. Everything is fine.

There is no point of going against economic darwinism. I buy 100% in NY from the B company and the customer service is amazing. I got a Leica M substituted no question asked. Prices are great, shipping is free. It's not my responsibility to keep a bunch of minimum wage jobs in my community and beside, jobs are created one place or another depending on the most favorable conditions including but not limited to technical competence.

joeletx: If Panasonic can streamline their model lineup with less confused model numbers, they probably will sell more cameras. who would know, for example, the DC-GX800, DC-GX850, and DC-GF9 are the same camera? the DC-FZ80 and DC-FZ82 is another case; then the DMC-GX80, DMC-GX85; DMC-GX7 Mark II are the same camera with different names. Holy moly ...

Correct, it seems that Panasonic marketing is run by some crazy guy. Why all these different names for different geographies and why so many overlapping models? Engineering on the other side produces very nice products.

Panasonic makes great cameras and they are leader in video but they have way too many models often overlapping each other. This is a cost for them and makes customers confused.

never heard so much bullcrap from Apple before. They just lost my purchasing, my current Macbook Pro will serve a few more years

TwoMetreBill: Where is the M43 version?

The Panasonic 100-400 does but I've both system (three 4:3 actually) and if I've to use a Tele I also need pixels so with my 600mm I use the Nikon D800E, the 4:3 solutions are toys compared to it.

Who would give $3000 to this company?

Dirk Nuary: What is the term of 'fast' here? It's manual lens isn't it? Of course can't do fast auto focus. And its name is SPEEDmaster, what is this?

Funny question :-)

Who would buy this when a great Nokton 25mm F/0.95 is available?

I don't know who need this camera. Probably because I own a M 240 and a few lenses but I just can't understand why people need this.

On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2247 comments in total)

I laugh seeing all this hate for Leica. If you don't understand Leica or if you don't like it simply don't buy it, it's a free world. I do have a M system (M240), a Nikon system (D800E and others) , a Nikon 1 system, a 4:3 system and depending on what I've to do or what I feel to do I take the camera that I consider more appropriate. With my Lumix GH3 and Leica 109 (Lumix LX 100) I mostly do video, I take the Nikon when I need the ultimate resolution or when I need fast AF, I take the Leica M when I'm relaxed and I'm out for quality not quantity or when I want basically the resolution of the D800E (is not just about pixel count) and I want to travel light. The Nikon 1? When I go to see the NBA games and they only let you in with a compact, they don't know the potential of that little monster. Each tool is for a specific situation.

Bought this lens because I do video clips as well and the PZ was interesting. I found to use this lens all the times. Very good lens the one I got, no issue at all, sharp. I normally use a D800E but with the GH3 and this lens I find myself with the smaller set almost all the times.
