If I am Nikon I would make more long telephoto lens and hope to convince someone with a full frame to buy a 2nd camera

This is the only way Nikon 1 can survive

Panasonic should make a lightweight 8mm prime lens
huge demand

Gabor Ruppert: So this is a lens which supports a smaller sensor than the Sony 10-18, but more expensive, bigger and heavier. What's the point I'm missing?

I have the Sony 10-18mm
At 10mm the edge (actually about 1/4 of image from edge) is totally blur
u don't need to look at it 100%. Can just see it in my 1280x720 computer monitor
unbelievable. I regret buying this expensive lens.

Suddenly A6500 looks like a bargain

It has RAW so can use DXO Prime
about the only bright spot
is a small sensor 30x zoom really useful?

should update ZS100 with 1 inch sensor

Many criticize Lightroom yet it is clearly still #1 why?
I guess Capture One cost $300 don't help
at least Lightroom standalone only $150

I am really wondering this as I am not a RAW person yet (will be)
and not familiar with RAW program

Is Lightroom #1 because of first mover advantage and the Adobe Photoshop name
or they are truly better than others and the critics not fair?

This is positive news for all
will see full frame mirrorless from Canon/Nikon very soon
zero doubt about it now

They have to if they want to stay in business. Mirrorless is the future, resist is useless
The more boomer age the want they want lighter camera, no heavy DSLR

"People bashing the sensor size is really getting a bit boring"
But that is a fact and a real issue
not all shoot at high ISO so good IS may not be useful
again not all shoot sports, so crazy FPS may not be useful

There is still the inconvenient truth that at low ISO
even entry level APS-C like X-A3 or A6000 beat it in IQ and weight and price !!!!

This is a fact and not trolling
6.5 stop of IS is amazing, I agree
but for the sensor size, this weight and the price seem unacceptably high

Ok...

In reply to:

Mirrormania: Gigantic body, tiny sensor, something is not right.

I agree
too heavy for a MFT
hope the E-M10 III will correct this

I won't use such a heavy MFT

E-M1 II biggest issue to me is not price but weight
with the 12-100 lens or even without
it is not lightweight by any standard

actually quite heavy, so why MFT
Olympus must decrease the weight of camera to make me a customer
400 gram maximum, the lighter the better

I am sure I am not alone, this is the reason to use MFT for many

In reply to:

Jefftan: I really don't understand if one is not cropping (digital zoom) , what is the use of these extreme sharpness and detail

Today detail in a 24MP full frame camera cannot be fully seen in a 4k TV/monitor
or in any reasonable size print

I don't even understand the point of 42MP or 50 MP full frame , let alone foveon

From what I see only sharpness/detail excel, color (which is most important to me) is not better and high ISO terrible

instead of cropping just use a zoom lens

for large print, the nasty high ISO is a big problem. They are not popular for a reason.
If both color and high ISO not good, only extreme detail, what is the use of this "feature"
This "feature" come with a big cost

Extreme high MP or supposedly extreme detail of foveon are for selling camera and with limited real use
That is my point. I always welcome real useful "feature"

If I am Sony I will be laughing
I really can't understand why this significant advantage can be have for so long

The ONLY full frame mirrorless camera, now 3.5 years!!!
I think not even Sony will believe their good luck

During that time, FE mount has become a better and better system (another Zeiss lens today)
Why others would let Sony have such an advantage for almost 4 years is really a mystery

If there is no Sony, there probably won't be 1 inch sensor camera
Which is a loss to all

if u want to travel light and have reasonable IQ, 1 inch is the way to go
I like Sony and no shame about it

Link | Posted on Apr 6, 2017 at 10:05 UTC as 7th comment

all those hatred of Sony has no ground
it is the innovator in the camera industry and also supply the whole community with the most advance sensor

If I have to hate one company it has to be Canon
It is selling out of date technology to dumb public
it is killing innovation

May also kill some camera company that use money to innovate but no one buy because it is not Canon

There are many panasonic MFT lens that I like
From now on, I will buy more of these lens to support Panasonic.

I don't think it will happen but even if Panasonic stop producing camera
Panasonic lens can still be used on Olympus camera

I always think Panasonic lens better than Olympus especially in weight (which is why I use MFT in the first place)

Can only combine pics in low ISO (good lighting)
when in low light, already low shutter speed make combining multiple pics impossible
