RolliPoli: I find this very objectionable. Will Rembrandt's etchings be colorized next? How about a bit more saturation in DaVinci's paintings and what about all his black on white pencil drawings? I really can not, without getting profane, express how much I loath the whole idea of 'colorizing' black and white photographs and movies. This crap is a full body exercise in bad judgement and even worse taste. There should be jail time for doing this kind of stuff. ;/ Thank God the photographers who shot the original pictures are long dead and unable to take reprisals on the feckless drones who have done this drek.

Most of these long dead photographers would have enjoyed an opportunity to shoot modern color cameras.

Yake: No LCD is a big problem. Everyone is used to seeing & showing their pics immediately. The LCD also provides reassurance that the image was captured. Along with digital capture, the LCD is the best thing to come to photography in about a century. Every smartphone camera has one. It is today's Polaroid, but better. Lose the LCD and you've lost a huge attraction of today's cameras.

It has EVF (which is LCD with eyepiece on top of it) and it provides better IQ than back LCD, especially in sunlit places

Patent for a dual camera?? Eh, spiders had eight eyes for hundreds of millenia.

Franki2: Not sure iys so good to have wifi and emfs so close to eye and brain, that is my guess why google glass disappeared

Nope, google glass didn't find much use because of people afraid being punched in face for using it. In industrial applications it's just fine.

russbarnes: I love the armchair analysts on DPReview. They know the sales figures for every segment of the market for every manufacturer and even the specific success and profit figures for specific models. It's an astounding level of knowledge, way, way beyond anything in corporate accounts. In addition, they are all CEOs of their own successful companies, understanding the full ROI path for product lifecycles, detail on R&D costs, machining, production and distribution. Thanks for the entertainment again, it always makes for hilarious reading.

I wonder if it works for Trump: do you need to be a president, or at least a billionaire, to criticize him?

safford1977: Would love an adapter like this to use my 300mm f/4 Pentax 67 lens on an aps-c. Wouldn't that refocus the light field down to aps-c size (~22x15mm) from 60x70mm? So it'd be like f/1.0 at 300mm? Or do I have the concept/math all wrong? BTW, the 300mm, while manual focus, goes for like $100 bucks so it'd be the fast prime deal of a century if it'd work.

WGVanDyck: Why on Earth would I want to do that to my film cameras in a market that is flooded with every conceivable form of camera to fulfill my digital compulsion? And, offers virtually nothing new for my lingering film addiction?

Now compare this Olympus Pen F to its film predecessor (which used much larger 24x18 frame rather than 18x13!!) X-T2 is as large as FF SLR of the past.

Enginel: I think there is much worse problem not mentioned in text: most of film camera shutters were not made for tens of hundreds of actuations like those in digital cams.
And in cameras with leaf shutter it's closed by default so with you're not liveview option like with a real digital cam.

@GrahamHO
Lol you're comparing expensive yesterday's cameras with cheapest modern ones.
Maybe they had stronger hull. But I am talking about shutter cycles here, not years.

zeratulmrye: The problem is that their lenses have no focus ring, which clearly indicates that DJI has no plan for competing with the other camera makers

@BlueBomberTurbo
Well, it appears that manufacturers are stuck with older ideas like they make black boxes with fake pentaprism hump. Back in 1970s it made sense.

USB 3.0 provides bandwiths upto 5 Gbit/second, and over distances with is meters long. So it isn't the same for USB2.0 480 Mbit/s.
Lenses don't need that much, and only over much shorter distance.
What would you use so much bandwidth for?

@BlueBomberTurbo
It doesn't depend on number of pins. USB 1.0-2.0 does everything with just four.

walker2000: I know every companies want their own proprietor lens mounts. Besides that, what's the technical advantages of this DL mount that other existing mounts cannot do?

Open means not covered by NDA, at least.
M43 is still a closed club, no matter how many members joined.
If the canon drink has 10% sugar and the olympus has 8% sugar, the olympus is "lite" compared to the canon but still not sugarfree.

@walker2000: old 43 system was marketed as 'open' thought it was not. New m43 is not marketed as 'open' -- good that they stopped lying about this. It is 'open' only compared to Canikon.

mosc: Adapters that Metabones should actually make:
-60x45mm to 44x33mm reducer for the Fuji x50s mount
-60x45mm to 36x24mm reducer for Sony FE mount
-EF to EF-M mount reducer

I didn't ask him about the Q. Well, also I can speculate that they were doing a version for blackmagic camera (2.7 crop sensor), then decided it has too bad IQ on the edges and decided to slap Q-mount on it.

In reply to:

Enginel: Focal reducers would have been much more interesting in 2008-2010 when FF was still pricey and even aps-c sensors generally.

It has only one "optimal for m43" trait, focal reduction ratio. It is not designed and will not work with m43 cameras

Franz Weber: This is what I can not understand: when the image sensor has a aspect ratio of 16:9 why do they use circular lenses? Wouldn’t it be better to use oval lenses in order to safe weight and cost?

@Alec
85/1.2 in Canon EF mount suffer more from clipping by a mirror box (which is not part of the lens), if anything.

I do not understand. This speedbooster is for using FF (Nikon) lenses on a Q.
generally, such things could have gotten much more interest before sub $1k FF cameras appeared.

DJI does has some (two IIRC) cameras with m43 mount. They even rebranded one Panasonic lens. Probably they will be fined heavily if they leak any info which is 'restricted'.
