In reply to:

Rambazamba: Is it true that you can not turn off EFCS ?
The A7c would be unsuitable for adapted glas.

Dpreview forum is full of discussions regarding EFSC and bokeh. We don`t have to talk about it again.
I tried it out with many old lenses, and I see an effect in the bokeh.

Olympus has everything in its toolbox to be successful.
Offer a Pen F with FF sensor, IBIS and small pimes + pancakezooms in L Mount.
The retro rangefinder space is still empty in FF (Leica aside).

Why are in nearly every image the shadows crushed or the highlights blown out? Whats wrong with DR and Fuji ? No wonder why they are coming out with HDR now..

Kwick1: You guys just don’t get it. Fuji, smartly, realized a long time ago that they’ll never be able to “out spec” something like Sony. So they concentrated on the experience of actually taking a photograph, and getting a great result straight out of the camera. Read the review sites and all they do is go through the menus and mention minute differences in specs, “proving” one camera is better than others. Bull. It’s about enjoying the process of taking photos, living in the moment creatively and getting great results with minimal effort. In other words, actual photography.

Don`t fall for fujis marketing hype. IQ counts a lot !

A cripple hammer oktoberfest! It is 2019 and this APSC camera still has no IBIS, while nearly all FF competition offers Ibis already in their basic models.

(unknown member): 35mm lens sized like a beer mug. totally ridiculous. I want em smaller, lighter, cheaper.

28-135 variable aperture ... not interested. I'd like to get a super compact, light, decent IQ, affordable RF 24-120/4.0 to go with an EOS RP.

So true. My hope was that Oly join the L mount and came out with compact light primes like in the old days. But no.

IdM photography: Who still buy lenses for a DSLR?

Let em buy. In 2 years I buy it for cheap on ebay and adapt to my mirrorless camera. The dinosauriers did`t know eather.

Good bye Olympus, thats it. Completely off course. I was hoping for a Pen or Em5 as a FF 24mpix, but no. No one will bye this small sensor camera for this price.

Its amazing. Sony put nearly everything in.
I only found two missing things:
The play memories apps and different aspect ratios.

I was surprised that seversl sample photos were taken with appertures above f8, so that defraction will affect the image. Why did you choose these appertures?
I guess the kitlens will be sharpest around f 4 to f 5.6

As a micro four thirds shooter there were always two things preventing me from switching over to Fuji
1.) Ibis
2.) compact pancake zoom
Bravo Fuji, they made it now!
When Ibis will come to a rangefinder styled fuji body like the Xe3 or A3 with tilting screen I am going to switch.

Dostoy: This camera might be called a GX9, but it is actually a 20 megapixel GX95.
I can only assume that, by calling it a GX9, Panasonic is saying: "There will be no true successor to the GX8."
And that is disappointing!

The GX8 was kind of a wrong naming. The GX9 is a perfect successor to the legendary GX7. Bravo Panasonic ! It is exactly the camera I am waiting for. Now my EP5 just have to die before I will order a GX9...
The Gx8 fans will be disapointed, whereas the Gx7 and Gx85 fans are very happy with this announcement.

Olympus could easily own the vlogging and blogging camera space with this recipie: 4k, 5-axis IBIS ( also in video), 180 display, stylish bodydesign and mic input at a price of 550$. Their old 16mpix sensor is good enough for the web. Its sad to see how Olympus wastes it (last) chances....

First of, I like the design, it looks beautiful and worthy.
But where has the acessory port gone? Olympus seems to think that women dont want an EVF option because it messes up their makeup.
Its disapointing that the E-Pl9 has no 5-axis IBIS as well. That could have been a winner point.
If you don't need 4K buy the Epl7 or Epl8 and a used VF3.

Earlybird29: The bodies of the Olympus and Panasonic “pro” cameras are now so big together with their pro lenses that I’ve finally decided to ditch my Olympus EM1 MK II and pre-order the new Sony A7R III to get the FF advantage of much higher image quality. After spending the last 5 years with M4/3 and being constantly disappointed with the IQ even from their pro lenses I’m done with it. I also have the FF Leica Q and the different in IQ between M4/3 and FF is like night and day. My gear is going up on eBay and I won’t have any regrets. Sorry folks.

When you unbox your new Sony camera you will realize that it even hasn't 1:1 aspect ratio. Your GAS will never be satisfied with new camera systems.

I think it will only work for objects in short range. The infrared light pattern send out by the phone will not be strong enough to reach objects more far away.
Will it be possible to create out of focus bokeh?

Link | Posted on Aug 17, 2017 at 16:07 UTC as 2nd comment

Thanks for this very interesting article!
One advantage that you didn't mention is that when the camera dies the lens can live on. My loved Sony Rx100 just died and the whole thing is gone...

nerd2: "The optical design is said to minimize vignetting"

"bokeh produced by the FE 100mm F2.8 STF OSS GM, which it says is improved by the use of an apodization (APD) element"

"An apodisation element is simply a radial neutral density filter (that gets darker towards the edges) "


Probably a typo, they mean darker towards the center
