princecody: Wonder if Panasonic will counter with a Nocticron version?

Hopefully they counter with a 17mm f1.4...

belfastbiker: it has such shallow DoF that some of her eye ain't in focus.... how much less DoF do we need?

Typically you don't use a fast 50mm equiv for headshots. The blur and DOF is fantastic for stepping back and getting a little environment.

Carl Mucks: I bet a 50/1.8 Canon on any latest FF body would beat Olympus 25/1.2 in every test and for 1/10 of the price.

The Canon 50mm f1.8 I'm familiar with would need to be stopped down to f5.6 to have corners as sharp as this does at f1.2.

superstar905: Looks like Oly has figured out how to stabilize 4k video with the EMII.

You'll have to ask Panasonic engineers.

tkbslc: I wish the NIkon DL24-85 wasn't in limbo so we could compare it to this camera.

It's 5mm thicker.

Rockyroad: What differentiates the 30mm from the 60mm for macro photography (I have the 60mm)?

Does the 30mm have any advantages?

Cheaper, smaller, lighter.

The f1.4 aperture rating seems kind of like a scam given that it instantly drops to f2 as soon as you even look at the zoom lever.

They are actually roughly identical in size. Nikon has an add-on EVF option and hotshoe.

Panasonic did it in the $700 gx85 already.

In reply to:

PedroMZ: And the third odd decision is the fact that it has no viewfinder or even the possibility of adding one. A whole page on its video capabilities and no comment from yourselves about the missing EVF. I am beginning to wonder if you should not re-name your web site Digital Video-photography review. How many more times do manufacturers need to be told that in decent light rear screens are almost useless.Surely it is partly your job to stick up for traditional photography.

It's not "missing" an EVF if the manufacturer didn't intend for it to have one. Just like it isn't missing 10x zoom and it isn't missing a larger sensor. If you require any of those possible camera configurations, then this isn't the camera for you.

solarider: Curiously Canon hobbles the fastest shutter speed at 1/4000th second, for a nearly $1000 camera.

It's OK, all the lenses are f3.5-5.6,

A native portrait lens would be nice, but I guess the 50mm STM + adapter will be pretty cheap and compact.

Huawei's use of similar technology got excellent results, but not necessarily better than just using a single top quality RGB sensor.

madeinlisboa: Why should I spend so much money in this brick when I can get a compact camera which has real optical zoom and better low light handling for a fraction of the price??? Is everyone getting insane??

98% of people were already going to buy a phone anyway.

Adam2: So, pro photographers with access are given the latest iPhone to prove what? That they can make decent compositions? IQ really isn't there and if you gave them an old film P&S they could achieve the same effect. I guess convenience has a place?

Which film P&S? Certainly none that I ever used.

Miike Dougherty: Wow, my Nikon D500 on matrix metering isn't able to handle the mixed sun and shade nearly as well as the iPhone. I shoot a college football and a half shaded field is very difficult to expose accurately. Once the sun goes down though, the images are really well exposed on the Nikon.

That's the beauty of a fast processor. It's doing exposure blending in camera. It also can do ISO 20 which really helps with the noise.

I guess the EXIF on these is confirmation that the 56mm EFL lens is only f2.8 and a much smaller 8.5x crop sensor. That is extremely small even by phone standards (56/6.6 = 8.5)

The regular 28mm EFL lens is 7x crop f1.8 which equates to a 1/3" sensor. (28/3.99mm = 7)

Tokina still knows how to do AF, doesn't it?

Bombastic: I guess I'll depend on Sigma to deliver reasonably priced optics for my a6300.

For all of the current Sigma lenses for Sony mount, there is a very closely priced Sony brand alternative. Not sure what you are getting at here.
