  • As I said I have almost zero experience of Canon If there was a camera with that feature set ,focal range, compact size and good image quality I would in like Flynn :-) Pity that last "feature" ...
  • As far as I know that is the only Nikon one camera still being sold You know making my little comparisons with that camera if you just looked at its spec sheet and not end results it looks like a ...
  • That just about sums it up Gary :-) Though not small by the LX100 standards I have taken my Pany FZ1000 on a couple of trips as a do it all
  • I am not assuming one needs an F/2 equivelnt you were the one who picked the lenses :-) But given the size weight and cost of the Panasonic lens I do not think an F/2 200mm lens would be much ...
  • The comparison was about lens sizes using equivalent effective focal lengths and nominal apertures . If as the anti-equivalence gang promoted F/2.8 is F/2.8 { if you ignore all those pesky little ...
  • Given the size of an F/2.8 lens on m43 how big do you think a 200mm F/2 would be ? not far from the size of the Canon { cannon :-) } You never got back to me about the comparison below no ...
  • Let me put it the way I did below . Do you think the camera on the left which has an effective FF focal length range of 25-600mm all at a nominal F/2.8 aperture does the same job as the lenses on ...
  • Not if we are comparing like to like same diagonal AOV, same DOF control and most critically same total light gathering . As I say when you can either find a FF lens slow enough or m43 fast enough ...
  • That comparison is even worse do do the same job as a 400mm F/4 on FF you would need a 200mm F/2 m43 lens
  • If it is travel with my wife or family who let's just say are not so interested in photography as me :-) I would travel with my GX8 , Pany 14-140mm and 20mm F/1.7 which covers quite a bit of ground.
  • If it was some unique lens that the other company does not offer then I would probably just bite the bullet . However if both companies have a similar offering I would go with whatever makers ...
  • Every single review of the lens suggests otherwise unless your lens has a fault . You are remembering to apply the lens profile as that is how these lenses are designed to be used
  • The more than good enough IQ is of course a personal judgement and they are smaller and lighter when you do not compare like for like. There are neither enough slow FF lenses or very fast m43 ...
  • There is an adapter to allow filters on the 12-24mm though beyond ND filters there are not a lot of filters that work well on uwa lenses including polarising filters which give an uneven effect ...
  • The IBIS is only going to help if you are shooting static subjects how often do you shoot static subjects beyond 250mm ? And of course the Sony also has IBIS and the long lens { what few they have ...
  • What is obnoxious about the comment its a camera for gods sake , a small fiddly one :-)  I think that Panasonic may have decided that the 1" sensor compacts will be their tiny camera models as the ...
  • I think the 12-24mm and 24-105mm F/4 lenses would make for a superb combo, I take 90% of my photos within these focal lengths . And at a push on our 42mp cameras the APS mode will stretch this out ...
  • Obviously , Light is a transverse, electromagnetic wave :-) Well that is what Mr Thomson my Physics teacher told me
  • I wonder if it can be done in software or if one may need hardware upgrade :-)
  • Thank goodness we are only arguing about cameras and nothing important like what is  our favourite flavour of ice cream :-) Personally those vanilla lovers make me fume and don't get me started on ...
