On article Have your say: Best high-end ILC of 2017 (115 comments in total)

Why is the Panasonic G9 in the list of 2017? The release date is Jan/Feb 2018! Therefore it's impossible or at least difficult to judge about this camera.

And this one is even better.

Yes, that's strange. The lens of the Mark I is definitly sharper.

These Pro lenses are really only for the ones out there who need this one stop more depth of field and light.
Everybody else is better off getting the 45mm 1.8. It's 80% cheaper and 70% lighter.

CyeJoeBob: The Canon is around 1-1.5 stops better in low light against the 1" sensors and nearly on par with the Panasonic LX100 less.
But RX100 III/IV/V, LX10, LX100 are 1 1/3 stop faster at the wide angle and 2 stops faster at tele end.
If you considers this, then there is almost no difference between the Canon and 1" cameras and the LX100 is a bit better.

@ Franz Weber
That might be right, though the difference is definitly barely visible. But at that price point I expect more than that just a good daylight camera.

Some great pictures and some rather boring and interchangable ones.

CyeJoeBob: I really considered buying the Nikon 5600 because of it's low weight, but why is the touchscreen restricted to the right side while looking through the viewfinder? Doesn't Nikon like left eye shooters? That's the showstopper for me, as I hate nice feature which I practically can't use.

Yes, I have tried. And big surprise it works, but you need some weeks or months to get used to. Not everybody is a "both-eye-shooter". It's like wearing your watch on the other arm. Not immpossible, but uncomfortable.

Nice image quality, but it's still a camera with a lot of wasted potential. It's nothing special about this camera and at this price point I expect something special.

The already 3 years old Panasonic LX100 has a much more interesting feature set with more interesting lens. The RX100 IV/V has slow motion. RX10 III/IV advanced video features and great zoom range.

The Canon G1X III could have been something to close the gap between the RX100 and RX10. Better handling, with mic jack and weather sealing in a more compact and lightweight body. But they wasted the potential. Hopefully the upcoming Panasonic LX200 (if it's coming) will close this gap.

The G9X II is a surprising pick, but looking closer it's not a bad one. The price is now nearly on par with the Sony RX100, but it has a touch screen, which gives the G9X II amuch better handling.

What makes a camera suitable for students? Can't see a diffence to the beginner category. Canon 200D(SL2) and Nikon D5600 are very similar in many ways.

On article The Leica CL is (almost) what the TL should have been (421 comments in total)

I like the form factor of this 18mm lens, but the performance is only medicore for the price. Center sharpness is very good, but not tack sharp. Corner performance is only ok. The Ricoh GR and Nikon A are sharper from edge to edge.
The performance of the Leica is more on par with the Fujifilm X70 lens.

The Fujifilm X100 and Fujinon 23mm f2 give me the same blurriness wide open at close focus distance. Now I finally understand that this isn't a flaw, it's a feature! Enlightening!

In reply to:

CyeJoeBob: The Canon EOS M system doesn't have a lot of lenses, but the few they have are great. Especially the 22mm f2 and the 11-22mm. If they would give us a compact 35mm and 50mm, I would really consider to buy a Canon EOS M.

But unfortunatly a have the feeling, that if Canon is coming with a FF mirrorless camera, the lens support for the APS-C system will die, like it happened to the Sony APS-C E-Mount system.

@ tkbslc: I think it's clear what I mean without calculating the exact focal lengths for Canon.

@ ProfHankD: I didn't compare Canon M with Sony E. But I don't see Sony making a lot of APS-C lenses since they released the Sony A7, actually I can't remember even one lens. There hasn't been any new APS-C lens from Sony for quite a long time.
And the case with FF E-Mount lenses is already extensively discussed, nothing to add here anymore.

@ John C Tharp: Fortunatly that's true. Maybe Sony leaves the field to others. The only problem is, that different manufacturer don't have a coordinated roadmap. That's why the line-up is not very well balanced. There are gaps where we have no options or only cheap lenses or only expensive lenses.

On article Fujifilm X-E3 Review (752 comments in total)

For moving the focus point in EVF or liveview mode the touchscreen is as laggy as the one of the Sony A6500.
But here you don't mention it and say it's responsive. That's just not true for moving the focus point, which makes this function much less usable than it could be.

On article Fujifilm X-E3 Review (752 comments in total)

Did I tried a pre-production camera? I tested the X-E3 last week and found the touchscreen absolutly laggy and not responsive. The touch gesture and reaction of the camera felt often disconnected, espacially while moving the AF point.
But I haven't seen any review writing about a laggy touchscreen. I will try it again next week.

In reply to:

arjunmehta: Is anyone else questioning the likelihood that Canon would reach exactly 90,000,000 cameras and 130,000,000 lenses on the exact same day?

First sentence: "Canon has hit two couple major production milestones today."
But it seems more like a suggestion of the author, because they released the statement at the same day.

"[...] F2.8-5.6 [...] might sound like a big step down [...], the practical differences is smaller than this would seem to imply. [...] F4.5-9.0 equivalent range isn't as different from the F3.8-7.5 equivalent of the Mark II as the actual F-numbers make it appear."

If they don't step back in terms of price at the same time, every step back is a step to much.
