I really miss the days of the competitive upgrade. It was a saving for us, and got us in your customer base and upgrade path. Plus adds potential to better sell your other products. It does look great, but as others have said, will wait until there's a discount offer from somewhere.

meanwhile: Love one of these in 40mm.

"Just crop to 40mm"

Not the same.

dpfan32: These filter apps which are creeping now into the desktop computer from the iPhones and Androids in this world are the death of creativity IMHO.
In the past picture editing was something where you had to work into it and in the end you were rewarded with skills and gorgeous pictures.
Now it's all bloated with a very simple filter apps where you can achieve results in no time.
For me it's very tempting to use Luminar 2018 where with a few clicks there is a nice result... at first sight...
The how and why you don't really care... with even more simple filter apps it's even more obvious that you are robbed from your creativity and are forced to do what other creative people in the development department of the software company intended.
So in the end we will see more and more pictures which were edited with less care in much less time an which will make serious work go under in the flood.
In the end it will go that way: why hiring a photographer when there is an app for that?
Photography?

Photoshop has supported filter plugins for over 20 years. *shrug*

The comments on this post are caused by the headline, not the software.

Really, after all your education about the topic ... ?

"For 4/3 to be FF, there ..."

So then your definition is wrong. Thank you.

Yes, you would continue to say that, and continue to be wrong. According to your definition, Olympus 4/3 cameras are full frame cameras. They aren't.

Ben Herrmann: Actually, these look quite good considering the genre of camera it is. On some of the images, the ISO at 1600 wasn't noteworthy. But overall, images were sharp, well balanced, and had a nice color tonality. But unless you're inclined to pursue the red dot (at ridiculous prices), I don't see this selling in droves. More and more brands should pursue this genre of camera (with bigger sensors than 1/2.3"). I'd like to see a 1" sensored tough series camera being released.

What's really needed is a sensibly-priced Panasonic version of this camera.

Noir, that would mean all cameras are full frame.

I think you had a typo in your URI. This is DPReview, you are looking for PDReview (Pedantic Digital Review).

Och Elo: Just an opinion, but I've always found inexpensive f/2.8 zooms to be a bit awkward. I am a former Canon FF shooter and thinking of the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. Only pros have the "need" to get absolutely every shot such that they would use a zoom in this range, and as such most pros I know at least step up to the 24-70 version or actually the Canon 24-70ii. And for non-pros looking for a casual walkaround, I think 24-105 f/4 lenses work so much better. 24mm vs 28mm is actually a noticeable difference. You also get more zoom range. Losing a stop of light isn't a huge deal with the ISO capabilities of cameras these days. I think 24-105 and a fast prime in favorite focal length is a much more flexible setup on FF for most casual shooters.

"I prefer traveling with f/4 zooms. I still get great quality, but with lighter weight than f/2.8 zooms."

Yep. Except for this one.

m_black: Why all the worry? NY tax is 8%? That’s it? So on a $3000 camera purchase that’s an extra $240. Whoop de do. Last I heard America has a multi-trillion dollar deficit and broke their own laws to go into more debt. And luxury goods buyers are trying to escape their state tax by ordering online from out of state? 8%? Have a look at Canada’s or New Zealand’s or Europe’s sales taxes. NY is cute by comparison. But ya, goddamnit, order your cameras and lenses before it’s too late! Lol. 🤔🤦🏻‍♂️

So you expect more from DPR commenters than you do from your elected officials. Interesting.

DPReview is an international site. Expect international perspectives. The sooner you accept that, the happier you'll be.

Phil, maybe you got lost. This isn't Reddit.

"And the benefit of f/4 is that you typically get a lighter, more portable, less expensive lens."

Yep. How does that apply here though?

Why would a non-pro want a lens that is slower, double the price, heavier, bigger, and needs larger and more expensive filters?

I think Chris might have been annoyed by the weather, and the build of this lens. You have to "Serenity now" past the build (and the ugly font) to just let the images do the talking with this lens. It's not an outwardly beautiful piece of engineering.

So go waste the people's time in posts for whatever brand those are and leave us alone. Thanks.

"LOL! You do not own that lens either."

Yes, I'm afraid that I do. Purchased from Georges in Sydney. What is wrong with you? Do better.
