Otto Van De Steene: my review
(as being ex photographer & product designer @onakcanoes)

+ cool ideas
- the bag alone is already very heavy
- expensive
- yet another backpack that ergonomically feels like *** for my spine.
- I want something 100% waterproof with the same practicals

Ok, I'll be honest. I'm behind the drawing boards for a serious competitor ;-)

I hope your bag's shoulder straps are more friendly to the shoulder! Softer padding and surface material would be nice!

I returned the 20L bag, because of the shoulder straps. They feel real sturdy, but the material is unnecessarily hard and rough, and really digs into one's underarms. Thankfully, the sternum strap can be used to pull the shoulder straps together and away from the underarms. However, it's not always practical to have the sternum strap on at all times. A simple modification to the shoulder straps material would make the bag nearly perfect.

dennis tennis: Oh wait, I thought OIS ruins the image because of the extra optical element. Where is the outrage now that Olympus has finally started to put OIS on its lenses. The longer 50-150 f2.8 "PRO" didn't have OIS but this one does? Where's the betrayal of IBIS superiority over OIS? I thought you don't need OIS and that IBIS was awesome all by itself. I can't wait when Olympus announce a FF body. There won't be any outrage that the lenses will be huge. The fanboys will spin it as "having options". Just wait and see.

Go troll somewhere else.

Very nice!! Glad we can leave the ISO dial unlocked! Only thing missing from Fuji cameras now is IBIS. Add IBIS competitive with Olympus, and it'll be a complete package. Maybe two years from now with the XT3.

webber15: Not wishing to pee on ya chips boys but the fuji xt10 far better value for money,,and with the 55-200...sensational...

Love my XT10. But the video quality and functions are lacking. But I definitely like it as a stills camera more than any of my m4/3 cameras.

"The GX85 is capable of 4K video capture at both 24 and 30p at up to 100Mbps and can make use of its 5-axis image stabilization (when using a Panasonic lens with IS) during capture."

Does this mean that with when filming in 4K with a non-stabilized lens of any brand, the 5-axis IBIS in the camera does NOT work?

Hoping high ISO performance is improved.

Almost $1000 for a small sensor camera? Yikes.

In reply to:

DVT80111: I want to see some sample pictures to see how useful f1.4 on a wide-angle lens is. I have been shooting Zeiss 12/2.8 and most of my picture does not need shallow DOF. With wide-angle, it is easy to compose your picture. Main subject is usually huge anyway, so isolation from background is not necessary. In fact, I rather see clear background in the picture. Am I wrong?

Yes

Interesting that so many are intensively vested on what the review says. Almost as if they own Sony stock and are afraid that the camera won't sell well! Not getting a Gold Award is not the end of the world!

In reply to:

dansclic: Yes, battery life is miserable. This is a major problem because this causes you to check every half hour if you are not going to fin d yourself in a bad position : the imposibility to take the shot at a précise moment. This is quite distrubing and his a major prpblem, as the shutter noise is, because it draws attention on you , this is very strange for a camera chose design is intended to make you invisible !

The shutter noise in the digital Leica's aren't exactly quiet either. Cameras like the X100/s/t are really quiet!

Jim Salvas: What fun! But, hey, guys, we're also waiting for a test of continuous AF with the E-M1’s new firmware. This would have been a good opportunity.

Thanks for the info James. I was hoping that the C-AF in the EM1 trounced the EM5-II so that I don't feel compelled to buy an EM5-II.

Great interview. Very informative. More interviews like this please!

Sigma should really tap into the mirrorless market a little more aggressively, especially making FE lenses as Sony is taking its time to release additional fast lenses.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review (1004 comments in total)
In reply to:

armanius: I'm enjoying my LX100. Unless I'm missing an option somewhere, the auto-ISO implementation is horrible. Camera refuses to go past ISO 1600 even when the shutter speed has dropped to 1/8" at full zoom (when in aperture priority).

Using P priority doesn't change the behavior of auto-ISO. I lowered the max ISO from 25600 to 400, and auto-ISO did limit the ISO to 400 max. Then I switched it up to max ISO of 3200. Strangely, auto-ISO now uses ISO 2000 as the max. Previously, the camera refused to go past 1600. I then set max ISO back up to 25600, but camera is still limiting the ISO to 2000. Oh well, I'll just have to use M mode most of the time. Panasonic really should just implement the 1/35mm equivalent focal length rule for choosing ISO when in auto ISO mode.

No A6000-like auto focus? Bummer.
