mpgxsvcd: I have to say that the GF7 looks outstanding for its sensor size at ISO 6400. Compare it to the E-M5 MK II. I actually think the GF7 handles the noise better in RAW images at ISO 6400 than the E-M5 MK II does.

It looks like the same sensor as the GX7 and GM5. And yes, it is very good. And not just in terms of noise. It's very sharp and Panasonic has really improved the color output. Skin tones look great now, which was a weakness with earlier sensors.

mpgxsvcd: The D7200 definitely shows a high ISO noise improvement over the D7100. It looks like it is on par with the 7D MK II for about $500 less.

It's closer to the 6D than the 7D2, IMO.

Wow, that D7200 looks good even up to ISO 12800! Barely any difference between it and the Canon 6D.

PerL: Weight 586 g = combined with a m43 Olympus OM-D E-M1, 497g
= 1.080 g

And as comparison:

Nikon 20 1,8G, 357g, combined with a FF Nikon D750, 750g
= 1.107 g

Why not try again and use a realistic kit. Most Olympus primes are under 200g.

Anzere08: Nice to see more fast options in m43 format. Somebody at Olympus seems to have decided that f/1.8 was as fast as they would go on primes. While I understand the choice to keep lenses small, I wish they would offer more f/1.4 , f/1.2 or f/0.95 choices. It would compensate for some m43 limitations: DoF control and low light performance.

If you look at sharpness graphs, these f0.95 lenses are not very sharp at all until they get to about 1.8 anyway. So perhaps Olympus favors lenses that are sharp at all apertures over ultimate headline speed.

And what about the rest of the kit?

ccclai: Equivalent to F2.8 in full frame?

I would say it is the equivalent of Voigtlander's own 21mm f1.8 that sells for $1200. So pretty much the the same price for the same thing.

Nikita66: I'd like to see a 2.8 version of this for APS-C.

Samyang makes both 10 and 14mm f2.8 primes. So you are covered whether you meant actual or effective focal length.

iAPX: I would like to see people in the leica lens group when they read that, with such a low price! Lol!

They'd probably be more interested in the similarly priced Voigtlander 21mm f1.8 that came out last year.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: I don't see the need for this kind of aperture on an ultra wide-angle lens. It might be useful for shooting in dimly lit locations with no tripod or flash, but aren't wide-angle lenses supposed to keep everything sharp? I surely need good depth of field when I shoot landscapes and interiors. I'd trade f/0.95 for f/22.
The bokeh mania is driving people nuts.

@LegacyGT: paper thin DOF when focusing at infinity? Isn't that like trying to divide by zero or something?

tkbslc: Since I am sure someone will say it is too expensive, how much is a high-grade 21mm f1.9 for FF?

You guys need help.

Voigltander's 21mm f1.9 is about the same price as this lens. I guess FF examples do exist. Maybe I should have used APS-C as my example. I don't think you'll find many 14mm f1.3 lenses...

micke69: Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical is $569

Crummy old lens, IMO.

Can't figure out why I'd buy this given that nearly every system has a great native 100mm macro for about the same price.

Dheorl: Specs of this bode well for the next V camera IMO.

I think so, too. However, which shape will the next V camera be in? They keep experimenting with drastically different body shapes.

straylightrun: I would rather get the Samsung NX Mini and 17mm 1.8 OIS.

Or you could get this one and a 18.5mm 1.8. Or a Panasonic and a 20mm f1.7. Nice to have choices.

Raist3d: No body only kit. Why, Nikon? And a new battery vs J4. I guess inevitable if it consumes more power.

You may have 10-30, but you don't have a sweet retro silver one. Nikon wants to make sure you have one in every color so it always matches.

pacnwhobbyist: That 10-30 kit lens..how sharp is it?

I think they need to figure out how to make it more compact and start a little wider. It's got to compete with Panasonic small cameras and pancake zooms now. Look at that front element, it is obvious the glass isn't large at all. Make a TINY 24-70mm equivalent pancake.

In reply to:

grasscatcher: For those people wondering who the market is for a camera like this, I think a large portion of the market is birders (which can be a very lucrative market). With the 70-300 lens, they can get 800mm equivalent along with fast focus tracking and high fps in a relatively small package. It's closest competition is the FZ1000, which lacks hybrid AF, but mostly makes up for it with DFD AF. However, most birders are more comfortable with the Nikon name (as in binos), so will continue to flock to the J3/V3, no pun intended. :)

I can't imagine 800mm equivalent, handheld, with no EVF, though.
