denooyer: Unfortunately a bit pointless, as you can't tilt & shift with this lens. So for pure architectural work, you are still better off with Canon/Nikon body + their own brand shiftlenses.

You are better of with a sinar or alike.

That could be my new go to camera for macro work in the field.

Pah, children! I would buy it!

HayatoY: This camera might do double duty as a studio heater. The vents on the side and the processing power required to do 8K/240fps suggest it would run very hot.

It would run even hotter if there were no vents.

I like the design. That is what I call superb ergonomics. It even has a handle for easy carrying.

It is beautifull.

It does not run very hot. What do you think the vents are for?

TMax1980: A guy I know asked me to critique photos he took in Africa. He has several Leica M cameras, half a dozen M lenses, and plush leather accessories. He's an okay photographer. His work isn't unique or special.

I looked at twenty or so photos on his monitor, mostly pictures of impoverished people and decrepit structures.

He asked me what I thought. What could I say? He's not a bad guy, just an egoist.

I told him it looked like he had a swell time, and I then excused myself to catch up with other guests.

"He has several Leica M cameras, half a dozen M lenses, and plush leather accessories."
Maybe he had been rich before the purchase.

Sergey Borachev: If I were able to ask a question, I would ask him whether Olympus still choose to be bold in their pricing, given the latest development, i.e. the $2000 Sony FF camera. And, how Olympus can compete if it does not reduce its flagship's price.

And how much costs a 24mm*35mm-camera capable of 60 fps RAW+jpeg shooting? Oh, there is non! Too bad.

stevevelvia50: I recently did a detailed comparison shoot between my OMD EM 1-2 and a friends Canon 6D, just to see the difference in formats, not so much lenses. I used my 12-100 set to a variety of focal lengths, and chose f4, f8, and f9 and compared my lens to both the Canon 16-35 f4L and the 24-105 L. The mirror was locked up on the 6D...The Canon lenses were set to f8, f16 and f18 respectively, to Create equal dof between formats. Both cameras were set to 200 iso. What surprised me the most, is that there is virtually no difference in the look, tonality, sharpness, contrast overall appearance of the two formats, micro four thirds and full frame. There was basically no difference when blown up to 200% ! This was not meant to be a high ISO comparison, in which case the full frame would eventually pull away from the Olympus at much higher settings. If you're into wildlife, birds and distant landscapes, the EM 1-2 and 300 f4 is a killer combination!

No, if you have the same DOF and the same shutter speed there is no advatage of larger sensors, not in high ISO range. The advantage comes with low ISO. Because they are larger they can hold more electrons and therefore have a better noise ratio at low ISO. Also there is a advantage in resolution. And because you can sacrifice more DOF in favour for more light with a larger sensor.
In fact the method the OP used was in favour for the canon. He adjusted the aperture for the same DOF but used the same ISO and with that different shutter speeds. The larger sensor captured more light and should have a better IQ. Maybe the sensor is just not as good or the difference is not noticable enough.

Digital Imaging Technician: Sony is out to eat them alive, and they (Sony) have a glaring advantage (sensor size).

Fujifilm seems to understand what their advantages are: usability and design. I hope it's enough to save them.

Glaring advantage in sensor size? Because the one size from Fuji is too small and the other one is too big, or what? Are the 36mm by 24mm the only right size?

Imagine how much capacitiy one with a 5.25" form factor could have!

The Squire: 8x10 slide has NO SUPPORT for 4k video.

When are the 8x10 slide vendors going to stop resting on their laurels, and actually try to keep up with Sony/Panasonic?

Thats too bad, but 2.74 in × 1.91 in ( 71 mm × 52 mm ) support approximatly 12k at 24 fps. Sometimes it is preferable to stick with the smaller formats.

Sannaborjeson: Still a 'B-movie' compared to LR and C1.

Some of the best movies are B-movies.

Hereby I address my wish for an additional lens release in Sony E-mount:
The Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG HSM | Art wich is allready available in A-mount and others should be released as E-mount version, too. I have the A-mount version but I like to have Eye-AF available.

mosc: This should have a focal length reducer in it. There's enough room in there, correct? Could just expand the projection of the FF glass to cover the larger sensor. Doesn't somebody make one for Fuji's MF system?

Multi-aspect, that is exactly what I think to be the best use case for that adapter.

LJ - Eljot: Oh, sorry! I thought full frame means 6x6.

Not with 120 film. Everything between 4.5x6 to 6x9 is usual with 120 film. Hasselblad chose 6x6 (cm) for their system, so 6x6 is the full frame for Hasselblad. 4x5 inches are the small plate cameras.

Anulu: For those who say Sony have bad colors: just stop using awful adobe raw converters like LR. Capture One using each cameras own LCC profile instead of LR wich is forces adobe's generic profile (what is terrible) to all cameras. So the problem here is the software what you use, not Sony colors...
And talking about skin tones from SOOC jpegs is ridiculous. We don't know what WB they use what picture profiles etc. Maybe Sony jpg engine not the best but in RAW they have best IQ and best colors

Phase One claims to have all supported cameras carefully profiled, so theoreticly there should be no difference between the cameras if the same scene have been shot with comparable settings and the same lens, but actually there is a very hughe difference. They seem to use differnt coulor filters at the sensors or have different processing of the date wich makes it impossible to match. Oh, I also never get the Capture One results like the ooc-jpegs.

Even with Capture One pro the colours are bad compared to Olympus for example. I compared Sony and Olympus in jpeg and Capture One. I could not get the sony images anywhere near the olympus output, neither jpeg nor capture one treatment. Even with the same lenses.
