Sorry, you made so many comments in M43 forum I assumed you had one.

Indeed, the opposite words in fact. ;-)

Curtis, you still shooting m43?

WGChsv: Certainly one of the cheapest way to get f/0.95 on full frame E-mount, but with the high ISO capabilities of Sony cameras do you really need that fast of a lens on E-mount? I suppose the DOF would be the main selling point of this lens though.

are you missing the word "not"?

mick232 - no it doesn't, at the same frame (head) size. Try this:http://dofsimulator.net/en/ 85mm gives you a bit more depth of focus, but a more blurred background.

You had me right up to $3k. Sorry but if I blow that on a lens I wont appreciate having to soften the bokeh. I'd rather have a $200 second hand funky old lens and a safari.

Meh, crop sensor.

Looks like weather-sealing got another good test. One day the light will come out for this camera.

brumd: Ooo, a tilting screen. Even back then..
If only they'd remembered to put it on at least one of the modern generation of m43 cameras. I'd choose this 1.8" brick any day over the current flip-out ones.

Which "high end point and shoot" are you going for?

I prefer the swivel screen for stills personally. Lots of shots you cannot do with a tilt only screen.

You can buy an Em1 Mk1?

AshMills: I think some commentators here have not spent much time with one of these kits and then picked up their DSLR kit again. For me there is no doubt that m43 and certainly mirrorless has a future. I actually would not be surprised to see a m43 camera with DX sized sensor - it can be done after all..https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1096581-REG/jvc_gy_ls300_4kcam_handheld_s35mm.html obviously they would need to sell a bunch of m43DX lenses..

Take a look at the link I shared above: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1096581-REG/jvc_gy_ls300_4kcam_handheld_s35mm.html

This is a JVC camcorder, with a S35 sized chip, and a m43 mount. This camera lets you mount the widest range of lenses (with adapters) and has settings to change the crop that the camera records.

Imagine this chip, in an Olympus body, optimised for 20MP stills, with the same M43 mount, and the same electronics as the EM1.2

All you would then need would be another selection of lenses (or adapted Canikon ones) that cover the S35 (DX) frame - IF you want the extra chip size. As I say some of the longer m43 lenses would probably cover the chip already.

I'm not saying I want such a thing necessarily, but my point is it could work.

Actually, while Im dreaming, can it have a global shutter too!

My point is, they could, in theory make a 20MP APS chipped, m43 mount camera that would have the same flange depth, same processors, same sized body, same speed for everything other than the shutter mechanism, same AF (on a lens that covered the sensor, like I imagine the 75 1.8, the 300 f4, the 60 2.8) All they would need do is create some (admittedly large) "trinity" of lenses. They won't, but they could! There is little point however, as the difference between APSC and m43 is actually hardly worth it. Be funny if JVC did.

brujo74: Shocking! A pic won a photography contest!

I think you are reading too much into this. He's not "dressed as" a schoolboy, he IS a schoolboy. Cultural imperialism?- go to any normal school in London and you can find hundreds like him. It's not traditional Swiss clothing, its a normal school uniform!! There is nothing particularly Swiss about it!

In reply to:

Paul Graber: Bit confused on the issue of Pro Capture only working with Oly lenses, as reported in the review. On the M43 forum, an Oly rep was quoted as saying that it works with all lenses - and it's hard to understand why it wouldn't. I wonder if the reviewers actually tried it with a Panny lens? (I was hoping to use my Panny/Leica 100-400 with Pro Capture.)

Presumably it is possible the Panasonic lenses are not capable (at the moment?) of resetting the aperture fast enough? Certainly some of their lenses (25 1.4 for instance) are a good deal noisier on my cameras. That shouldn't exclude adapted (stopped down) lenses..

Thanks.
