Intermittentoverexposure: Frack. The same stupid swing-out screen as the E-M5 series. Newsflash: Nobody cares about selfies - vertical flip up/down is far nicer to use.

They used to build cameras with this type of screen. it was called the E-System. I was longing to have such a screen again for all the years.

Alphoid: Personally, I find the EPL series to be nice a few generations back, where they sell for $200 or less. I kind of miss the point of a $650 E-PL camera, with the fantastic OM-D models for just a few dollars more, or a few dollars less for last year's model.

For me the PEN light modells have allways been too light. Have they ever been so cheap? I think that was the PEN mini.

It seems to have the accessory port. So I assume it is compatible with the VF-2 till VF-4.

MrTaikitso: Uhm, where is the viewfinder? Or is this a consumer camera, and a replacement for the LX-100 is to follow?

Where is the hot shoe?

Dabbler: Sweet! How did you get 980mm on the EM5?

I use mft. I was confused by the use of equivalences. Did not expect that.

DavidB2: Anyone know if the 135mm is optically identical to the Zeiss 135mm f2 zf.2 APO?

The Apo Sonnnar is now gone from the website. The Milvus really seems to be the Sonnar in new housing.

I dont't know, but they look identical. Even the text in the description is the same.

I think there is only one adequate punishment for those three vandals. Did you ever heard of Sisyphos?

On article Throwback Thursday: the Samsung NV10 (77 comments in total)

That last picture is actually really good. The IQ is also good enough for only screen size. If you enlarge it to 1:1 it looks very blury.

Angrymagpie: The wait for a 35mm f2 or /f1.8 continues
I think a lot of people will be thrilled to see the 35mm f2 lens on the RX1 series be implemented as an FE-mount lens. It will probably be the lens that stays on my camera 90% of the time. Now I have to bring a faster lens to supplement my 35/2.8 for when it gets dark

4200€

Starkiller: Videographers in 2005: 5D for stills + VHS recorder for videos. :-)

In 2005 most Videographers had miniDV cams.

Iconic moments always get captured on Kodak.

bmwzimmer: Was it shot with a Sony?

Sinar p3-df with 192MP scan back of course. How else would you get the focal plane right and get rid of the converging lines?

Oh, come on! Stop it!

In reply to:

sportyaccordy: Now the big question. Do you think these were taken as single shots, or captures out of the series of a burst?

They are not huge. They are slim and light, so they can be moved more swiftly.

Greg VdB: Some nice pictures here - not too shabby for a collection of techheads ;-)

And not that it's a competition, but my personal top-3 is:
1) #10 (Wenmei's girl with fountain)
2) #29 (Rishi's motorcross rider)
3) #24 (Samuel's industrial reflection)

1) #05 (Spencer's boat at sunset)
2) #11 (Williams' stars and mountain)
3) I really don't know if #10, #3 or #1

Rolleiflex SL66. Better than Hasselblad.
