Jo_To: I think, there is a design fault within the G9. So it is stated as a photographic oriented camera, that's what I'm looking for.... perfect....

But... it hasn't a build in flash. That wouldn't be a problem at all, because you can easily add one connected over the hot shoe.

But, I think, you can't use one of this tiny camera powered flashes like those from the LX100 or the E-M5 MK1! They need the fourth little golden pin in the hot shoe, and this isn't there in the G9 (unlike in the GH5 as an example).

So you would end up using a big self powered flash. But this is the one I would like have used to opperate as a remote slave flash. Hence I will end up to have two big flashes, and not only one?

And even worth, I'm not sure, if every flash can be used as a master flash. It might be a somewhat special, even more expensive one. And would it be possible to use the camera interface setting them up?

Hmmm, so would it be better looking to the GH5?

@eno2:
interesting...
Hmmm, but it seems to be unavailable for the m43 System.
So it would work, if I had a nikon or canon based i40. But, of course I haven't .....

But, maybe, in a few month they will deliver a m43 version. I will not be the only one who needs a solution for that.....
Thanks & regards

eno2: Thank for the information. I'm using a Nissin i40. Maybe it will work with the air 1 commander. I'll check it.....

Checked.... sadly it doesn't seam to work together. Hmpf...
214€ for the kit di700A & commander.

It could have been that easy if only panasonic had....
So I have to keep the G81 beside the G9 :-) That's simple....

J A C S: A much better result than the G9... Unfortunately, the shadows had to be lifted, it is the way photography must be done nowadays, and the resulting image is very unappealing, not to mention the colors.

Not so different than the D850/5DS/5DSR (those without pixel shift). The A7RIII has less color aliasing but in most parts of the studio scene, those three cameras resolve better overall with more pedestrian lenses.

G9 Images where JPG. We have to wait until RAW files can be processed too

If there are solutions for that, it would be fantastic. I will by the G9 nevertheless because I think it's an absolut fantastic camera. And the 80MP mode alone drives me mad. Those JPG's here at dpreview are awesome, despite it should have been a preprduction cam.

Nice to see....
unfortunately the low light Raw ISO 12800 of the Olympus EM5 is still defect in the lower third of the Frame

and the GH3 would also be very interesting for comparison with GH4 / EM5 / EM10 / EM1....
And Panasonic G6 Lowlight only exists in 200 ISO...

may be this could be fixed some time.

In reply to:

semorg: if the performance is near their 14/2.8. With nano crystal coating and f/2.0 this will become the default lens for milky way and northern light photography for aspc sensor cameras.

why you don't take the SLR Magic 12mm F1.4 (T1.6) ?

In reply to:

rudis: bhphotovideo has both.
12/2.0 Rokinon/Samyang for 400$
and
10/2.8 Rokinon/Samyang for 530$

I'll go for the 12mm F1.4 SLR Magic Hyperprime.
Same Pricetag, even faster.

Jo_To: Hello DP-review

It would be nice if the RAW - Day-Light shots from the EM-1 from ISO100 to ISO400 can be reshot. They are clearly out of focus. From ISO800 the shots are sharp. Look feathers at upper right corner, or blue colourtube in upper left.

And the RAW Low-Light shot ISO12800 of the EM-5 is defect. The lower part of the picture is missing.

Also it would be nice if the Pentax K5IIs and K3 is allowed to join game. They are, imho, the closest competitors to the GM1/GX7 and EM-1.

Often only 2 choices in the compare screen are selectable. It would also be nice if the normal shown 4 choices are selectable.

(p.s. The new Low-Light scene helps a lot, very good idea)

Thanks
Jörg

Hi Mark,

yes, you are right. I should have been more precise, I ment the high ISO performance of the EM1, GX7, 7100 and the K5/3(?), they are really close together.

interesting, helpful, good examples, and well written, thanks for that.
(to the 8/5 discussers, your 8/8 grid isn't squared (because the picture isn't squared either) so it may miss the 1.6 rule)

Regards & nice weekend

On article A sneak peek at our forthcoming camera test scene (320 comments in total)

The first time I looked at the new scene, i thought OMG what a c..p. were is my beloved wrist watch? Many aspects could be prooven here at a closer look. The blue for the sky, sharpness, and noise.

Now I took a closer look to the new test scene, and I have to admit, it's not that bad at all. Because it's bigger you have to look closer. I found plenty of good stuff .Many Textures and some shiny objects, little tiny fonts, different kind of feathers.

But at least I have to say:

PLEASE SAVE THE WIRST WATCH!!

and Robot and Paperclips would be very helpfull too
And the Martini? I like Martini a lot ;-)
