Matsu: It may not be relatively useful advice for brides - I'd ask instead to see a full wedding album from start to finish in addition to the usual collection of best images. However, it's not bad equipment advice for photographers.

The best bet for shooting weddings is to carry a kit close to what a PJ would use on assignment and between bodies, lenses and lighting with all-day or multi-day reliability, Nikon and Canon are still hard to beat on the balance of options, file quality, support and availability.

Could you use something else? Of course, depending on your experience, style, location and niche, some of those other options might even be better for what you do. But if you're advising a new wedding photographer, the big two are the safest real world recommendations.

" the big two are the safest real world recommendations" - that would like advising to buy a film Kodak in 2001: companies that insist on their dying old tech for fear of loosing customers. Mirrorless is the... present.

Beautiful.... and it also shows how drones can disturb birds (at 1:16s).

So is Panasonic going to use old sensors until 2018, or will they call Sony???

luisflorit: Why do I always see lots of artifacts in the blended (stacked) final results??
I've never seen a satisfactory HDR or panorama automatic implementation, always poorly blended. And the results here indicate to me that this focus stacking has the same problems (man face around the nose, and just everywhere in the church image). Manual blending or using dedicate software like Hugin always gives me MUCH better results, although with extra work of course.

You are right, but this is not the case with the nose of the old man. It is clearly a problem with the autoblending algorithm. You can fix manually that without any problem.

Look at the images at 100%. The bottom right of the man nose shows a big and obvious halo totally blurred with no detail. The church image shows the same problem in many regions. Typical problem of automatic blending.

If an UFO appears behind the Roman Coliseum.... I hope the camera is UFO prepared.

Loosing time and resources with another 25ish lens instead of concentrate in the huge hole of the system in good long lenses!!

I hope Panasonic does not kill the 100-400 as they did with the 150 2.8.

I completely agree, anyone using commercially should pay to the copyright holder.

But only if, at the same time, the copyright holder removes it immediately when someone does not like it. Since we are not free to avoid seeing a huge ugly construction right in front of our noses, the copyright holder should remove it from our views.

Sumicron69: Ahhhhh looks like a nice camera but I will not be giving up my EM5 for this. It is still one of the finest cameras I have ever used.

I don't know you, but in the IQ DPR tests, I cannot tell the difference in noise and sharpness between the EM1 and EM5, or the GX7..... It's just me??

Something is telling me that, as always, DxO marks will show all these m43/43 cameras of the same generation have quite on par sensors.

I'd suggest to do the tests with a faster lens (75mm @ F1.8 or 50-200 @200 & F3.5), and/or at longer focal lengths, specially the second one.
Because just about EVERYTHING in the frames is essentially in focus (actually, I think the trunk behind the horse in #17 has better focus than the horse itself), so the test has no much useful information.
I would suggest also to disable NR, since it ruins sharpness judgement (the hair of the girl is an ugly mess).

straylightrun: Big surprise. Next is Micro Four Thirds and eventually APS-C before FF becomes the standard in a few years.

I think that in "decades" you will probably have much better sensors that will make us laugh about our neat current FF sensors. FF would be too big then for almost any purpose. IMO, future is small and, of course, mirrorless.

Maxfield_photo: Remember all those folks last year who said the sky was falling on the DLSR market, and it's name was mirrorless?

Nikon didn't make a mirrorless camera, but a compact camera with interchangeable lenses. Terrible idea.
