jackspra: Great looking MF camera with fabulous lenses.Real fine photographic instrument.Everyone would like one if they could.

Yes, of course. But only to sell it to buy other stuff and put the rest to some nice travelling. Not that I think it’s a bad camera, but just something I definitely do not need.

RolliPoli: A marvelous piece of engineering but no substitute for a camera and a telephoto lens.

Well, of course it’s also wide angle. I think I can guess what the OP meant, but the statement could been more specific, as in which camera with which lens.

Well, basically it IS a camera with a telephoto lens.

There is (was) also an app that does it vie wifi I think.

Tom K.: After reading the comments, it appears that there is an astonishing number of people who would not correctly answer the question, "Which is heavier, a pound of lead or a pound of feathers?"

Hehe, on the other hand if you pack the feathers dense enough they will probably do the same kind of damage.

Sorry, off topic, but at a research institution I am not looking for spiritual development. I am looking for good science. Everything else should stay at a personal level. But who am I to complain, when I was working at KU Leuven several years back ...

Mike FL: I'm still waiting for some one to released a NIKON DL 18-50.

Yes indeed ...

Paul B Jones: After getting over the immediate reaction of being smugly judgmental, I thought about the sadness of someone dying. Also, I remember a few times when I have stumbled while walking backwards on rough ground to compose an image (fortunately not on a cliff top).

Indeed ...

Sometimes forgot to adjust my film speed dial. Hotshoe covers would not have helped a bit ...

sybersitizen: Those huge nail polish (or fake nail) gaps are disturbing.

Fake nails are horrid anyway ...

Too narrow shoulder straps are a sin committed by quite a variety of brands manufacturing backpacks and bags.

Banhmi: Two thumbs up for rethinking post-processing. Most young people need a quick post-processing solution so they can share their photos on the fly.

Without going into a 'captain obvious' spiel on info tech -- big camera manufacturers need to get much more serious about software integration!

For some simple automated processes probably yes, for critical work no. I am not sure if you need a this über-FF compact for quick sharing (though of course sharing is not a bad thing per se), a good phone camera should do the trick (as they do apparently in most cases).

Looks like a blown-up Samsung compact camera from a few years back ...

In reply to:

Kubicide: This is a great focal length range and one that I've been hoping for from one of the big name players. I find the 24-70's way too restrictive in the wide for what I shoot. And the 70mm adds nothing over 50mm to me.

Really am happy to see this from Panasonic. Look forward to adding this to my collection.

Exactly. Though a 9-35 would be even more tempting for myself. But that 10-25 really looks great.

Yes, yes, yes!!!! Since a few years I've been asking for a 9-35/2.8 lens for m43 (or a 12-45 for my NX500). Seems like it will appear in this form, finally! Only problem will be that I may not be able to afford it, sadly ... ah well, time to save up.

Agree with Roland Karlsson below. Besides, for what it does it's still to large and heavy imo. Anyway for me a good OIS normally would be sufficient and would not encumber me one bit.

Still great, after "all those years". Autofocus could be faster with the 30 and sometimes the 12-24 though. And the review button is unreliable. Pity there is no replacement ... and there never will be.

So it's apparently not just me who thinks these things to be ridiculous, and I guess the are rather impractical, too.

Link | Posted on Sep 11, 2018 at 19:13 UTC as 11th comment

Hmmm, hopefully a sealed 10-24/2.8 with better OIS next. Or make that a 12-30.

Marty4650: One thing for certain, Fuji has come a long way in a very short time. It is really impressive that Fuji is this close to the Panasonic GH5 in some areas, and surpassed it in others.

Jordan, thanks for a really excellent video.

My bad: the 10-24 has lens OIS, though apparently not the hottest one. The omission that bugs me with the 10-24 was the non-existent weather-sealing.
