I own a EM5 I as back up body for my FF and I am very happy about it and available lenses. Anyway I would never spend more than 600-700 euro for a m43 camera. The advances vs olders bodies are minor, so a new release is a good chance to buy the older body at discounted price.

Have m43 sensors peaked with EM5? Are the EM5II, EM1 and EM1II any better?

Thanks, you have confirmed, probably without understanding it, it was a discretionary marketing decision to have people pay for the EJ, just like I said.

You don't get my point. I am not arguing that ALL exhibitions should be free. At Tate Modern some are free and some have to pay (eg ATM Philippe Parreno is free, EJ pics you have to pay). And this is entirely an arbitrary decision. You could use your faulty argument for the Philippe Parreno Exhibition that is free instead. "The PP exhibition should be a paid exhibition so that the EJ exh. can be free". It is also a matter of sponsors some time, if they could find a big sponsor for the EJ one it could be free. Anyway if you don't get it it doesn't matter.

I assume they pay their staff also for the "free part of the gallery" despite the fact it is free, don't they? The fact that they will make us pay to see this particular collection is just an arbitrary decision, they could show it in the "free part".

@jccrtv In Europe many museums are free

@Stu5 "certain parts are free and certain parts are not", any good reason why this should not be free? I assume EJ is not asking for money.

Mais78: I manage my Lightroom catalog and pictures out of an external drive (Touro S 7200rpm USB 3.0). Will an SSD drive make a noticeable difference when doing post production (aside from importing speed)?

That is clear, but will the difference be really noiticeable and worth the price?

This means no hope to see the 24-70 Art at Photokina?

Mais78: Why DPR calls the 5DIV "SEMI-professional"?? Professional photojournalists will use the 5DIV over 1D all day, same for most wedding photographers, travel photographers etc.

I would call the 1D and 5D professional (just different uses) and 6D semi-professsional (even though it is the second body for many professionals)

Well, the fact that some enthusiasts buy it does not make it less professional...

Noogy: Richard I have a question. Is high ISO better than 6D? In the studio shots you posted, I don't notice a remarkable difference, but what's your take?

I disagree, 6D seems to be the best of the lot at ISO6400

On article Leica improves Q functionality with firmware 2.0 (59 comments in total)
In reply to:

Van Spaendonck: Has anybody noticed that Leica has recently (at least in Europe) hiked the retail price of a Q by € 200? That is 5%, which is substantial if you realise that inflation in Europe is somewhere around 1%. Maybe strong demand allows them to. I also wonder how it is possible that all Leica dealers advertise the same retail price: now € 4190 in Germany and € 4275 in The Netherlands. It looks like Leica is dictating retail prices, which I thought is against EU competition law. I assume that Leica will deny this, but I would not be surprised if a retailer who advertises Leica products for less than the MSRP may suddenly experience "supply problems".

There was already a 10% price high a few mobths ago

jadeisnow: If only the update would stop the sensor capturing dust over and over soon as you get the thing cleaned!

How do you clean the sensor of a fixed lens camera? Have to send back to factory every time?

HatWearingFool: I'm surprised to hear your comments on the sigma adapter. Lens Rentals seemed to think it was pretty good.

Edit: I see they have updated with a warning about using the sigma adapter for professional purposes. https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2016/06/a-look-at-the-new-sigma-mc-11-lens-adapter/

Query if the warning is based on use with canon lenses (which are not supported) or also Sigma lenses
