I bought/sold K01 and liked a alot about it, but if that body had med. format sensor, at half the cost of X1D Hasselblad, bring it.

henrikbengtsson: After downloading and editing a few images now when LR has support for these files, I must say that colors seem to be back on track again. At least somewhat compared to what Canon has done lately in a lot of their models.

Promising!

They're getting closer to Oly & recent Pana GX9 spot-on ooc jpegs, sounds like.

m87501: if Sony would re-design their silly menus, less demand for this.

"Which settings do you have to go into the menu so frequently to change that it makes you not want to use the gear you have?"

I use the gear I have, just mostly (now) not the Sony gear I have. I don't like the Sony menus when I do need to change something, and therefore don't enjoy using the camera(s), bottom line.

Not a reviewer and I hear what you're saying, but I own 4 Sonys now because the images are great (Nex7, A7, A7r2, RX1002) but because of the menus and confusion while shooting, no fun to shoot and they sit in the closet most of the time, 3 are going on ebay soon (keeping A7r2 and will just deal with it).

PhotoFactor: LensRentals does a great job and we are lucky to have them doing such well documented work on their many blog articles. Thanks to Roger!

Plus their rental program is top-notch with great customer service, and has saved me several thousand$ on a couple occasions from not buying certain cameras & lenses that didn't live up to internet hype in actual use.

m87501: The camera needs more buttons and deeper menus. (Plenty of room on the front for at least 3 more buttons.) My A7r2 just doesn't have enough buttons and settings, was hoping for an upgrade here.

oops forgot the /sarc at the end.

citrontokyo: The Toshiba Flashair does this very well. I've been using it with my mobile and my desktop. All you need to do is turn on your camera, turn on your wifi and punch "flashair" into your browser.

The 8 gig Flashair I just got only transfers 1 photo at a time from the browser; if you figured out how to do all photos at the same time, please share the info?

FreedomLover: Well done review, beautiful sample pictures, thank you. Also many comments offer valuable insights from a broad range of experiences.

Unfortunately shuttershock is haunting this generation of mirrorless cameras, EM1 and A7r included. Manufacturers think they can save money by not offering a global shutter. I guess most don't mind, but it looks impossible to get clean images hand-held between 1/60s and 1/200s at 60mm and up.
Look at the central flower:

I should apologize to anyone offended with my use of the word "myth". I spent a lot of money on this camera and tried to re-create the issue within the return window over the past month; while there have only been a few examples shown with the ghosting issue caused by the shutter. I don't think for one-sixtieth of a second that some cameras did/do not have this issue, like all camera models have a few bad apples in the mix and I feel bad for anyone who had to return one because of it, because it's such a terrific camera. There is another camera of another make/brand with a real issue with hundreds/thousands examples posted online.

Nonsense. I've shot over a thousand shots now with my EP5 and not one single instance of it with a total of 8 different lenses now, including 4 heavy adapted AI-S Nikons....not one shot has this "shutter shock" myth.

Looks pretty good on the D7100. With VR & that range for $600 interesting.

In reply to:

Stupidco: Is anyone testing the mismatch between the camera recognizing the focal length of the lens and the stabilizer not recognizing the focal length of the lens. The camera can be working one one focal length and the stabilizer can be working on a different focal length. Unless the two match, focusing error seems highly likely. The stabilizer can be made to recognize the focal length of the lens fitted, using the settings function of the camera.

Which lens(es) were used, with which in-camera settings for the tests that showed the double-imaging? Thanks..

In reply to:

Stupidco: More re image stabilizer.

You can actually change the focal length in all of the 4 still picture settings in the image stabilizer, to various lengths between 8mm and 1000mm. As this can be done, I imagine that changing the focal length to the appropriate setting will have an impact on the way the stabilizer works and on the results achieved when taking an exposure. I've not bothered to test this hypothesis.

Yes I found that focal setting too and changed it last night. I also found the "anti-shock" setting buried in the menu which delays the shutter by 1/8 second after pressing it, and now need to try it without that set 'on', will try it just straight pushing the button with ibis and without.

Am in the middle of testing/shooting this EP5 and so far have not found any instance of the double-blur using the 17mm 1.8. Need more time & shots to be sure, but so far nothing...not a single one. Would like to find an issue upfront if it's there.

m87501: For anyone considering this camera, I own the EP5 and the simple fix to the trivial shutter shake issue mentioned is to simply use the 1-second delay (or 2 seconds). It's right next to the thumb...easy, solved. It's an ideal camera with wonderful flexible features and image quality for hobbyist landscape shooters like me who can no longer carry a tripod on hikes.

For landscape-only, technical shooting or non-fast action, it would deserve a much higher rating, but I did my homework reading the many helpful & useful tips by those on this forum and others, and knew this going in.

Yeah, the latter..it's a non-issue imo.

"Massively out of proportion" as you say, would be a good way of putting it.
