Well the pixel peepers arent going to like this camera, but i think a lot of new owners will enjoy blur and nice bokeh.

Nicely rescued. :-) lovely result!

As much though a pointer to using auto exp' bracket when we find a nice motif with a challernging exposure. Also a polarising filter would have helped achieve an even better result.

Really nice compositon, correctly exposed for the sunlight. This would be improved for foreground by lifting the quarter and midtones in curves, although i am not a fan of clumsy HDR, lifting the dark foreground woild help balance the image while still remaining 'as the eye saw it' exposure. You get a 5 for spotting the motif, 5 for a womnderful composition but the overall effect is lost a bit due to the underexposed foreground.

adhemar: I can't figure out this camera.

Who's going to buy it? It would be a perfect fit for the hordes of people that buy a body and standard lens and nothing else. But they're probably going to be intimidated by all the knobs, dials and buttons. The ones that could use all those controls want to be able to change lens. So...

What does it say about the 4/3 format? At a time when Oly and Pana are trying to attract pros with fully featured cameras, isn't a fixed lens 4/3 camera going to bury that format as the new "compact", like it 1" brother?

What about the video? Sure it can shoot 4K, but its very photo-centric controls (think Fuji X10/30) don't make it a good video camera. This is major setback for a company that pioneered the still/video convergence.

I think using the 20Meg sensor, downsized to 16 or so with the multi ratio, coupled a with longer zoom, would have made much more sense.

I think this is going to be a second camera, the travel camera, for DSLR owners who have higher end DSLRs. They have maybe tried mFT but the cost of decent glass for those low f stop bokeh is just not justified in a second system.

I need a jacket pocket compact I can leave in my glove compartment and this fits the bill, even if the lens is not sharper than the nearest rivals, it is going to have much better equivalency DOF control than the actually higher f stops of the smaller sensor cameras.

But tell me this ....Why does the D750 attract a decent photographer who can show off the camera, a minor upgrade from the D600 or 700, while ground breaking cameras in other non FF sectors like the LX100 or some of the earlier mFT or Sony products get rank amateurs to go do "real life"

And they do it on default settings with camera shake, poor attention to exposure and DOF etc etc!

I am not convinced this camera is going to be much goosd for portraits. One 75mm is a bit short, while if you back off a little as here, the bokeh reduces. Also panny's ooc skin tones are just not flattering, odd magenta yellow effect as you say beat ph.

In reply to:

JordanAT: The deep shadows are pretty uniform. Would love to see the RAW version.

I'm noticing a lot of negative exposure compensation in these outdoor shots. Does the camera tend to overexpose?

Always a lot more in the shadows than is lost to the gods.....bareny britton should have taken your lesson up the hill and stopped dowm, or used a polarising filter. Thanks for your work on this interesting camera.

Yep, this is one thing tyat has always put me off panny (being an olympus user) are the ooc skin tones. I dont want to spend a couple of hours in post for family in the park shots. Bokeh is ok, although at eq 75mm i think it is too short for a lot of portraiture.
