Sofort...Geld für Leica

I am wondering how this nice lens would do on A7RII in crop mode?

As a big fan of 40mm-ish in FF- I am interested.
It might be better balanced and have IS.
Any thoughts? Thanks

akjos: Major downfall is ergonomics. While specs are impressive im really disappointed fuji didnt redesign the body of the camera. I had xt10 and xt1 and they just were not comfortable in hand. You cant make DSLRish style body ( again) and but same subpar front grip on same annoying as hell strap holder that constantly pokes you into your palm between thumb and index finger , same ( or very similar) thumb grip and worst of all put shutter button on the very top ... if as much thought went to body of the camera itself as did into its guts it would have been amazing.
Shutter button is in unnatural place just like first sony a7 series was. ON TOP where you need to constantly twist your wrist trying to reach it comfortably :/
Front grip needs to be beefier and shutter button more forward like panasonic gx8 sony a6000 or a7II etc.
I had lensmate thumbgrip thing on my xt1 and while it made it little better it was still quite uncomfortable to hold for longer periods of time = not enjoyable to shoot with.
Too bad as I loved the lenses....

..and TVs were black& white ,small boxes

"dial operation and touch operation are completely different, so combining them could be confusing. The typical way of shooting with X-series cameras is with your eye to the viewfinder, and to use a touchscreen you’d have to take your eye away from the finder."

thankfully Panasonic doesn't think so

I heard there is focus peaking implemented, so wondering what MF legacy lenses we can use on Sigma Q-SD ?

I know there is a Sigma SA -M42 adapter.Any other options?

pacnwhobbyist: Perhaps there is some sample variation going on but I would say that I don't think the lens on the G5X and G7X is as awful as its made out to be. It's not consistently sharp and I don't dispute that the Sony's lens is sharper overall (although one would expect that given its shorter range) but I have pixel peeped on the G7X and found the results decently sharp in a variety of conditions and focal lengths.

Where I DO find myself in agreement is regarding the lens on the G9X. I think it's pretty lousy overall and noticeably less sharp than the 24-100 lens on the G5X/G7X. Granted the G9X is only $400 right now in the US but you're better off spending that on a refurb G7X for just a little bit more.

but if you want truy pocketable camera, the G9x is the best choice then

Beat Traveller: Geez... it's going to be harder to improve on these cameras soon...

I would suggest, : better sensor, on/off switch and grip

On article Olympus OM-D E-M10 II: What you need to know (134 comments in total)

As this camera does a lot things right lets concentrate on my TOP NEGATIVES :D

1) no new sensor
2) awkward on/off switch placement ( typical for few Oly bodies)
3) EVF in the middle (not as good for right eye shooter, but I guess good for minority)
4) poor grip (needing additional cost and bulk of the grip)

for me the 2) is most significant- I hold camera with my right hand, so I need left hand to switch it on?

If I spoiled a day for an Oly supporter, I am sincerely sorry :)

Nice gallery. New sensors from panasonic have better colour (~Canon), less contrast (than Oly).I like them.

Just wondering why a picture marked as RAW in a "filmstrip" is actually OOC Jpeg?

Where automatic playback function gone?

So by the time Canon will be able to incorporate EVF into the body, Sony will be announcing RX10 mark IV...

drivecancel: I bought a Fujifilm X100 used and upgraded it to FW 2.0 instead of buying an RX100, looking at the studio tests I made the right choice! (had to use X100S results)

You should not compare the cameras just based on the fact that both have one X and number 100 in their names

Nice video, even shooting mostly with sony, I like G7 x better than Rx100 series for various reasons, but main ones are: color and touchscreen. Very nice camera indeed.

radissimo: I bet that if they would make Q just with the M mount, it would sell EVEN BETTER that with this, althought likely great lens...

That's right, but this body with a M-mount is what a majority of people would prefer and buy.
