infiltrator: Just when I thought I’ve seen it all, Leica decides to rebrand a Panasonic bridge camera! Yikes!!!!

Come on, they have been doing it for years.

It's great to see Tamron offering something different to Sony, Nikon and Canon. Giving photographers choice in whether they want something like a 24-105 from Nikon or Canon, or a 35-150 from Tamron.

It would be even better if they offered the DSLR lenses in a K mount, but I know that this is wishful thinking given the volume of sales.

bilcobarnes21: One massive issue with these cameras and I can say from experience selling them is that these cameras are aimed at point and shoot happy snappers, particularly the TZ95, yet they are massively over complicated with no true fully automatic mode, they are just full of complicated pointless features, the majority of people that buy these just want a full auto point and shoot camera yet even in Automatic you can change focus modes, shooting modes etc, the amount of people I have seen that even in the ia mode have turned on 4K shooting and taken thousands of photos unknowingly is endless.
Panasonic just stick a fully auto mode on them, Please!!!

@P10004K do you drive an automatic car, or do you drive one with a manual transmission? Not everybody is as passionate as you about being to manually control your camera. There are people, such as my parents, who are never going to go beyond auto, but who would benefit from a more modern camera with a better sensor, lens, and maybe even a viewfinder.

dirkluchtman: ''two models for different types of professional users''

That means the affordable enthusiast model still needs to be announced?

It's called the G85 and G9.

Roland Karlsson: I say only one thing - Pentax DA 40mm XA!

Hellraiser in that case there is the DA 40mm Limited, which has a focus clutch so that the focus ring does not rotate. Whichever you prefer.

vscd: The Canon 40 mm f2.8 STM is a fantastic lens and costs about 120€. This is so nonsense, it could be from Leica. But leica at least makes decent products...

There's also the Pentax 40mm XS lens (https://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreviews/smc-pentax-da-40mm-f2.8-xs.html). It is absolutely tiny and a terrific lens.

pro photo 2011: It's really sad to see such nice equipment subjected to ill-treatment by its owner or owner's descendants. Camera equipment should always be stored in a dry and cool environment.

If your sons/daughters and grandsons/granddaughters are obviously not interested in photo gear, it is best that you sell them on eBay before it's too late.

Once you've sold the sons/daughters and grandsons/granddaughters on eBay, what do you suggest doing with the camera gear? Does eBay even allow the sale of children or grandchildren?

XeroJay: I'm sorry... The update process happens through the connected camera body? WTH Sigma, why did I have to pay for a separate USB dock for my Art lenses?!

Umm, it's a Tamron not a Sigma.

At 1.4 kg? Not exactly pocketable.

El Chubasco: Still like better my 35-100 f2.8 (70-200 equiv) for my micro 4/3 cameras

Well yes, for your m43 these Canon lenses would be quite unsuitable.

NilsBV: A 210 mm lens is incredibly frustrating, because a lot of sporting venues impose a 200 mm focal length cap on what you can bring in. That is certainly my experience with Australian sporting venues, whether that is for the football, cricket or soccer. And yes, I was prevented from using an E-mount 55-210 mm lens a few years back on a NEX-6. 10 mm extra isn't a lot of extra reach for all of the hassle that it brings.

Joiarty I am not talking about the best way to photograph sport. I am talking about what a security guard will let in through the door.

No they don't. They go with whatever it says on a lens. So I have had no problems with a 200mm on APSC. And ironically, have been fine shooting a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens on a DSLR, but been stopped with a much smaller (and less professional-looking) NEX-6 and 55-210mm combo.

But I'm sure that if your super-zoom is labelled 24-600mm or similar then I'm sure that they'd call that a 600mm even though the physical focal length is much shorter.

I doubt that they'd know what a teleconverter is and since I don't have one I probably won't ever find out.

rbach44: No one will buy it. Doesn't Nikon know all of the sports pros use A9's now? Who needs a pro lens when you have 20FPS and adapters that work OK under some conditions now...

I think rbach44 was being sarcastic there visualenvy.

Terrible Photographer: This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for! (Said no one)

An 18-135 mm is a great travel and walk-around lens option. I used one on my Pentax DSLRs for a while. But ironically given Visualenvy's comment, I have just swapped it for the Pentax 16-85 mm. While it has a little less reach, the 2 mm extra wide angle is worth it.

Are public transport buildings such as train stations permitted as the main subject of the photo? Or does the main subject need to be a public transport vehicle?

From the rules, we can assume that black and white, which are strictly speaking not colours, will be treated as if they were colours?

That is just gorgeous. The layers of the dark water, the light reeds, the dark trees, etc. The tranquility of the scene. The lone guy in his canoe silhouetted against the light background.

Come on, since when can't we just write heck? The whole idea is that it's a euphamism for hell. We're not 5 years old.
