Old Cameras: I think it cheapens the brand of you slap it all over any old product. Leica is exclusive and stands for German quality and craftsmanship. These ideas are completely at odds with a disposable Chinese cell phone. (All phones are disposable)

@dennis tennis : You were asking about German smartphones? Here: From 2001: http://www.gsmchoice.co.uk/en/catalogue/siemens/sx45/gallery/siemens-sx45-07/

Tommi K1: "Finally, an in-camera AF limiter will be included to achieve faster focusing by limiting the focus range of the lens, thus preventing time-consuming focus hunting."

That means Olympus has implemented a software focus limiter that photographer can program to limit focusing between point A and point B distances....

A lens focus limiter is not required.

So think about it. You set focus limiter to distances where subject doesn't go, like in tennis field the player doesn't go over the net, so one there and then another to back field.

Or birds in trees so it is just couple meters just next branches instead rear trees or front branches.

My Sigma DP Merrill cameras have had a built-in focus limiter function since early 2012 now. Time flies...

Tokyopana: This camera is a disappointment and is little more than a very minor upgrade (or perhaps a slight downgrade considering the slower lens) with a major price increase. There is no weather sealing and reduced battery life. Given the high price and mediocre specs compared with its predecessor, Panasonic could have at least offered weather sealing. Perhaps they should have keep the excellent FZ1000 in production until they had more to offer in a successor.

This camera has 10-bit 4K 4:2:2 video signal output and optional V-LOG, and you're calling it a disappointment? This is a major breakthrough, and in no viable way a disappointment! And you won't be shooting in a Taifun with this.

solarsky: No 4K/UHD video. Trump: "Canon is a mess! Canon is a waste! Canon is a total disaster!" That certainly rings true for people hoping to get some great 4K/UHD video out of Canons enthusiast (what? technocrat from 2010?) camera. Really onto a looser here... perhaps a Panasonic GH5 will bring it on, with expected 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording, etc...

@QuarterToDoom Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit meth :-)

@dvassafor & @Lars Rehm Correct! Why not - much - more photos from the monochrome camera module? Koi Zeit?!

In reply to:

BostonC: 12MP 1/2.3-inch Sony sensor??
why can't they put something like the sensors and lenses such as in RX100IV, LX100 on board?

Possibly because they aren't offered as OEM-modules that can be integrated into DJI's housing?

solarsky: Multi-shot Pixel Shift Resolution mode is the outstanding feature here, imho. It gives me the image quality of a 4x over-sampled image at nominal resolution. What would I otherwise pay for the resolving power of a 144.8 MP camera? $1800 or rather $180000?

@fmian : Nice, but analog. I meant digital.

solarsky: Can one generically tweak the seemingly off-set AWB of the A68 or would one have to run around with a grey-card to get results the likes of which a Panasonic GX8 et. al. produces straight out-of-camera?

azeg: They don´t want to repeat the pricing issue with the DP1. Very good decision, SIGMA.
I fell in love just a few weeks ago with my dp2 Quattro, but i will definitely go with the SD Quattro the day it releases in Germany ! Stunning picture quality with the versatility of a wide area of good to very good lenses.
For the rest i have my Lumix LX-100.

@HowaboutLoL: Those must be the same sort of people that still talk loads about the Concorde. LoL!

@tbcass Thx for the reminder. I do remember now seeing the method you mentioned in a presentation on shooting with the A7R/II.
