Bump!

2018 and still no review.

photoMEETING: Since the introduction of full frame cameras for the mass (~2005), I completely lost all my enthusiasm for things like this.

I have taken note of it. You won't have to mention it with the next sub-FF product announcement.

Remember when in-body stabilization was casually dismissed in photography discussions?

Now 3 major camera manufacturers have reversed course in the last few years and decided to include it. Apparently, optical stabilisation, if offered at all, is no longer enough.

I'm not too impressed with the faked bokeh and the finer details of the pics up close.

But the colors overall still look good.

bluevellet: This low-mp, multiaspect sensor would work great in a GM1-style body. Pity it won't happen..

LX100 is 3-4 years old, can not change lenses and instead features a fairly bright, big-ish zoom built-in. :)

In other words, DPR raves about low-light video with the GH5s, but I see the potential for stills too. If only that tech could trickle down to a less premium camera model.

It's not that bigger than a regular 43 sensor, certainly smaller than your standard IBIS system.

Sigma is on a roll.

Minor update. Meh.

Still a pretty camera to look at.

I'm not interested in a highly video centric camera. But the multi-aspect sensor and different base ISOs of the GH5s should be part of a more still-oriented camera. Too bad the G9 doesn't have those.

Maybe the GX9 will?

dpfan32: A massive body with a super tiny sensor... I don't get it :P

Larger body also equals enough room for big physical buttons, proper weather sealing and a real heat sink so you can shoot 4K all day without worrying about overheating *ahem* unlike another camera manufacturer who skips on all those features.

The difference in lighting is quite glaring. Did the Iphone use a flash or is this some post-processing retouching the photos?

Edit: must be the HDR mode.

I was surprised it was so stuffed with electronics and wires. I somehow expected a more clean, elegant design with a few big chips on a circuit board.

In the end, what matters is that these pro cameras work and can take punishment, right? Canon knows what they are doing manufacturing these cameras.

I clicked on this gallery without reading the header somehow expecting a lens for the GFX and was very underwhelmed by what I was seeing. "this is medium format IQ?"

Had to click back to the header to realize it was an APSC lens. That was a relief.

I was still shocked by the price though. :/

I'd rather have a bigger sensor and/or better lens over variable aperture.

I own the mate 9 pro.

Good phone with nice camera but just a phone camera in the end.

In reply to:

ozturert: Agreed 100%. This alone shows (proves?) already-excellent lens collection in m43 system. An excellent lens like this Sigma has hard time to justify (except from f1.4 aperture).
16mm f1.4 makes more sense in Sony E system though.

If there was no market on m43, then the two main camera manufacturers within the system plus various third parties wouldn't keep making lenses for it.

It's more because Sigma is a conservative and cautious company. They already have a proven business model of releasing the same lens on various mounts. It's what keeps them from supporting FF E mount when everybody knows they'd wipe the floor with Zeiss and Sony and their overpriced lens offerings. Yet Sigma doesn't feel like it's worth developing a FE lens from the ground up because it couldn't be ported to any other system.

dansclic: Why this ? We have already three 17 mm : f2,8. F1,8 and a pro f1,2, what else ?

But it's not a 17mm lens, it's 16mm. :)

Sony A7/A9 series cameras are not weather-sealed, despite misleading advertisements and reviews claiming otherwise.

In other news, water is wet.
