    Glad it was a happy ending! I completely get being ready to give up on a lens after dealing with more than one defective copy.  The PL8-18/2.8-4 gave me fits when it came out with multiple copies ...
  • I think this should be totally fine.  Even if we set the CoC right at the pixel pitch of the Z7 (0.004mm) for 35/8 the hyperfocal distance is 126ft.  So if you were effectively focused at infinity ...

    Boy I don't see anything wrong with this copy of the 12-45/4.  No signs of appreciable tilt/decentering/whatever.  Can't expect more of a zoom wide open I think. The corners of the 12-35/2.8 are a ...
  • Yeah in the 200mm shot even right long the opposite shore line there really isn't hardly a hint of scintillation if you look at railings and other fine detail features.  Great shooting location ...
  • Oh no! One less dimension than even Khan! I'm doomed if I ever fight Kirk and Spock in a nebula!
  • Well, not really the same in the final impact on the image.  The impact of the refraction from mixing air is a reduction in achievable angular resolution.  At 200mm we have a much higher angular ...
  • Thank you, good points!  I agree there is plenty different.  Couldn’t find a 20MP m43 without IBIS for a closer comparison.  The E-M5III build quality is garbage so at least that part is comparable ;)
  • The challenge was to justify a unique sensor design when already low volume sensor formats are not able to fund new sensor development and make a profit In the current market. You’ve waved your ...
  • Replied in Wow! Thanks!
    These are super helpful for evaluating, thanks so much for taking the time to share them. I'll need to take some time to pour over them but sure seems like a great all in one landscape lens based ...
  • The big difference is these are actual products being sold in the real world instead of your hot air concept that is a fantasy with not a scintilla of anything justifying it can survive in the ...
  • Panasonic G9 - $997 (after rebate) Olympus E-M5III - $1100 Canon EOS RP - $999 Those are current B&H prices. Please use your bakery analogy to explain those real world prices. (Here's a hint - it ...

    That's exactly what I do and what the old Adobe Z7 profile prevented you from doing. The CM was all screwed up so if you tried to rough in you got completely screwed up tint. Fortunately as ...
  • Hurray!!!  Thanks for the heads up on this.  I had downloaded the latest release a week or so ago but hadn't processed any new Z7 photos to notice the update v2 profile. It is way improved than the ...
  • The story is perhaps rosiest for Canon, whose 40.5% market share represents an increase of 3.9% over 2017. Meanwhile, its closest competitors both saw market share drop, with Nikon logging 19.1% ...
  • You are the one proposing a whole new sensor size so appears you seem to care about it. Making money and not giving up. Every trade report from the past five years.
  • One of the best examples of what m43 can bring to the table better than any other system right now.  Have so many great photos from the 15/1.7 on my GM1.
  • The difference is the other APS-C systems have been *successful* in aggregate.  The smaller ones  have *not*.
  • Replied in Meh...
    Counterpoint. You appear to be saying "it's for me so it must be a good idea". Most of my post is outlining the format you are proposing has existed in one form or another for 10 years and isn't ...
  • Also, for the record m43 already produced cameras optimized for video that had a native 16:9 aspect ratio at the 2x crop factor. They were the GH1 and the GH2 (they actually supported 2x crop ...
  • Replied in Meh...
    As someone who has shot m43 for over a decade I completely get the appeal of smaller sensors with higher pixel densities when it comes to reach.  I also feel APS-C is sort of a pointless place to ...
