On article Panasonic Leica DG 15mm F1.7 shooting experience (202 comments in total)

This is currently my most-used lens, despite mounting it on my e-pL7 which means the aperture ring is irrelevant.
I find that a non-issue, as the aperture stops are too weak for comfort when on a Panasonic body anyway.

RazorTM: And Nikon is pronounced "knee cone."

Bokeh comes from the word "bokeru" which means "to be blurred."

Gotten is the old (and more correct) word for Got,
which indicates how American-English is backward/old-fashioned but truer to its origins,
exactly how Afrikaans is viewed by the Dutch.
English-English is totally fudged-up by Euro-crud.
And if there are multiple dialectic pronounciations of the Japanese word Boke, then every one of them is correct.

It isn't sharp, and DOF is too deep giving the pictures on the wall too much impact for the scene.
It looks like a photo from a mobile phone.
This is NOT why "the world needs" ...whatever

I love the leatherette covering, but I've never seen or owned a real vintage tripod which has leather on the legs : as that would just be silly. My vintage tripods are aluminium or black-painted-brass. I will make a wood one soon.

Surely they now need a RED camera to put it on.

Is it just the view, or does it look 'fatter' than the original E-M1 ??

Punchy? Still looks like Nikon-Drab to me.

Also I reckon 24 megapickles is going to annoy a lot of first-time-DSLR consumers...

SeeRoy: Apple is surely one of the greediest, most vile, companies on the planet, if not the outright prize-winner. Whilst sitting on vast cash reserves it makes decisions about what its customers will be allowed to do with its products (we've seen this before.) It's laughable that the company still has a reputation for being "cool" - if a terrific PR success to be able to bamboozle so many people. As an early adopter of Macs (Apple used to make computers...) in 1987, I had enough of their unreliability and bad value by 1994. Their subsequent transformation, a triumph of style over substance, has given me some cynical amusement.

My oldest continuously working compootah is asleep in the other room, but this one is ... from 2006. WinXP, some core something chip from intel. There.
It isn't the BRAND, it is blind luck that keeps components running.

The controls look very good for those with dexterity problems,
like the aged or Parkinson's sufferers.
This could be a very nice camera for rich old folk.

I applaud this excellent idea.
I hope it is satisfactory in-use.

Strange that the samples on the advert include no point sources of light ... or did DPReview just pick a selection and miss that?

Sounds like a great lens, but about time Sigma!
I've avoided getting the PL 25mm F1.4 because I don't much like the focal length, ...
