Alphaville: These expensive small-sensor cameras really should implement computational photography to get depth of field control. I might orherwise just ad well put up with an iPhone X or similar.

I've heard so many complaints about this camera's ergonomics, but realistically, it is perfectly fine (I'm using a MkIII). I do have all controls over aperture, shutter speed, exposure (with all metering modes, spot, exposure lock), raw files, quite a big sensor, a flip-up screen, a real viewfinder, a quality zoom lens etc. Show me a phone that can get close to that.

I agree with the first part of your comment, but not the second. An iphone is nothing like a real camera in use.

I would have much preferred a 24-100 1.8-2.8 like the Canon GX7 but with less optical compromises. This thing? I don't really see the point. At least not for this kind of money.

Meh, they look oversharpened and smudged at higher ISO.

eastwestphoto: A shame that these phones are NOT available in the USA, and why is that exactly?

Protectionism ;)

racunseen: My smartphone has at least 20% better camera.

The over processing in the smartphone makes it look good, but the raw power is really not comparable.

jackspra: Nice shots.Struggled with the orange hair.

Yes, you should avoid shooting a Donald Trump's meeting with this camera 😁

TBLF: Yeah, that's nice and all, but I won't be buying any of their products and propping up the same company that makes the routers that the NSA has warned us against... Huawei is going to have to go a long way to earn my trust back.

Lol.

In reply to:

jimkahnw: Beyond mentioning the optional eye cup as necessary to supress glare when using the EVF, could the reviewer comment on the quality of the EVF, especially refresh-rate and image clarity? Thanks.

If the GX85 is anything to go by (and I'm afraid it is), the EVF has got very high resolution, but is let down by weird colors, the rainbow effect from the sequential panel, quite poor optics (typical Panasonic), and a dumb 16/9 aspect ratio, making the view much smaller than the magnification number suggests when shooting in native...4/3 ratio.

In reply to:

Jacques Cornell: "What the GX9 ended up being was a GX8 with modest but still important improvements."
Nope. It's a GX85 with modest but still important improvements. One look makes this pretty obvious. It doesn't look anything like a GX8, and it lacks the GX8's gorgeous large EVF, which pretty much kills it for me except as a second camera.

Exactly.

Well, I think it's safe to say :" no sh!t, Sherlock!".

SETI: Hey, Sony, just look at colors!

That's weird. I am a Sony and Olympus user (as well as Panasonic), and I really like Sony colors. They look pretty neutral and natural to me.

In reply to:

Lelitsch: I was a bit torn between selling my Olympus lenses or getting a new small body since the PL5 is getting really long in the tooth. This gallery looks like I might keep them.

By the way, did the noise get better with the new sensor? It looks a bit cleaner.

Nice shots, btw.

The sensor is still the same since Mathusalem. However, the processor is new indeed.

But would you trust a Lad(d)a?

In reply to:

bokehmon22: Honest question. Is anyone waiting for Canon/Nikon to release their FF mirrorless camera. I have 5 Canon EF lens and that's what holding me back.

You can buy an autofocus adapter for the Sony and use your lenses.

santamonica812: What is an "enterprise drive?" (I suspect that everyone in the industry knows this as a matter of fact. But for us laypeople? . . .)

Anyone with a short and clear definition? (Google is no help)

I thought it had to do with Star trek.

jeminijoseph: I had this idea in my mind for a long time. Someone stole it :). Cool for wildlife and sports photographers if they can take heavy lenses..

Probably inception ;-)
