if only it is 24mm (can crop to 28mm with 1 click) it will be a must buy

In reply to:

Jefftan: most important IS is not tested
ridiculous!

if not for good IS , 24MP APS-C dirt cheap, why use MFT?

My understanding is IS not as good as Olympus 5 axis, so why bother?

thanks
actually right now base on all recent development, i will have to reconsider whether spending more money on MFT is a good idea
i mean Panasonic go full frame, Olympus no new camera..etc

i don't like Sony lens , if stay APS-C next camera will be Fuji

Jefftan: Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM will ship in October for $1400

for anyone like me that is just a hobby, price make no sense
why i will always stay in crop, $2000 body is just the start of all the crazy price

APS-C at ISO 100/200, no real difference in IQ

"be neglecting the mid- to low- end of the market in their race to grab headlines with the latest and greatest "professional" equipments"

don't know what is cause or effect
mid to low go smartphone

to my standard, with DXO PRIME even MFT ISO 6400 noise is acceptable
just make sure no underexposure

On article New 32mm F1.4 STM joins Canon's EF-M lens collection (288 comments in total)
In reply to:

white shadow: I have been a Canon full frame user for many years and have bought the Canon M100 with 3 lenses for street and travel photography when I consider using a bigger camera is not convenient. The 2 superb lenses are the EOS-M22mm f/2.0 and the EOS-M 11-22mmf/4.0-5.6. The standard 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom is actually not too bad too. Now, this EOS-M 32mm f/1.4 should give the system a better edge as a more complete sustem. I am looking forward to test this lens.

"eEF-m is 1 of a kind ...pleas tell me of anther UWA that as cheap as sharp and as compact"

agree together with dual pixel make ef-m attractive
go sony better sensor, go MFT better IS
but no such lens, cheap and sharp

ultrawide is what make ef-m attractive in my opinion
but no in body IS, sensor can't compare with sony
but with excellent dual pixel

everything is a trade off

really? even at F4?
my copy even F 5.6 is much less sharp than tiny MFT 12-32 (an amazing lens)

"Sony's 10-18 is exceptional"

i have it, no way exceptional
just OK, average, barely acceptable to me and it is expensive
even with A6500 , mis-focus shot in cloudy/low light, maybe cause by F4 slow lens

9-18 also not cheap
EF-M cheap ultrawide most attractive among all crop mirrorless

David 247: Don't want to side-track this but back in July of 2017 I did a comparison of Hydra, Cortex and PrimeCam. 3 super resolution apps for the iPhone. It is not a perfect article but If you are interested you can see the differences. I still use Hydra on occasion. I heard from the developers at one time they are thinking of going to a RAW workflow to improve it with output to JPEG or TIFF. That hasn't happened yet, but may happen someday. https://throughdavidseye.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/iphone-super-resolution-apps-compared-cortex-vs-hydra-vs-primecam/comment-page-1/#comment-341. Also there is a link there to my Flickr account where you can download original files to see.

are u aware that DXO support ios?
not sure how well it works
will find out, i am especially interested in PRIME

in my TG-5 experience, it works like magic for small sensor
can have reasonably ok ISO 1600

the smaller the sensor the more important is software
there is nothing that beat DXO PRIME for high ISO for any camera

how is this even possible?
i mean combining pics in low light?
isn't the shutter speed slow?
or somehow the app solve handshake problem?

"LowLight Plus
noise reduction is achieved by automatically combining multiple photos. Due to a sophisticated image alignment, you can even use this mode without a tripod."
