Another thing; in that time period (4-6 hours) a painter can paint such pepper. But critics would be:

-the light and shadows are in the paint surreal. How come light comes from everywhere and no shadow nowhere!

-what kinda pepper is this! It is not a nature-morte, it is a surrealistic painting.

Photography proofs that the pepper is real and bends the light in extraordinary way.

Before digitalizing; I mean think about EVERY SINGLE WAY OF DIGITALISM - www for any type of infornation (news, communication etc), gps for the navigation at seas, synticisers at music and of course photography. It made everything achievable and very quickly indeed!

All the beauty of "dedicate, work, fail, try again, success" circle has wanished. Imagine, even after 6 long hours, it was possible to lose that final image at printing stage! Just making that photo "exist " is worth great respect.
Fantastic story.

Also one other concern, Pen-F is beautiful. But since flash is not built in, and GM1 is exist. That guy ia no ULTRALIGHT.

NONE of the m43 quality zooms ( 2.8-ish) are small! And I don't get it...
Think about olympus 17mm 25mm 45mm 1.8 lenses... they all are small. Why no F 1.8 and small as those... why!!!!

He wants to call someone from a Leica digital camera. To achieve such goal, had to find a way to integrate a Nokia 3310. Which has no android, no windowsphone...no nothing! Just a phone. Plus tlyou can play snake!!!!

And you truly can take leica photos! What kind a brand-slave a person can be! "Oh apple, please make a trash bag, that I can sort my litter!!!" :D

Don't know about 4k...or burst rates or etc. But Ibis is definatelty no need. THE PLACE CALLED OUTER SPACE, WHERE THERE IS NO GRAVITY! (even it can be from a simulator.)

Gear aside, fantastic shot in terms of light & photography. Because the background is whole another level of being fantastic.

All the photographers need is their brain. Everything else can be replaced. (This brand cam, this F number lens, whatever so on flash....)

In reply to:

rsf3127: How much better this lens can be if compared to the 19mm 2.8f Sigma Art?

Pretty good. I used to own a 30mm sigma F 2.8 This one has greater wide angle, which is smilar to 19mm.

Also focusing ring is mich better. And you realise; all sigma lenses could be smaller for m43, but they are bigger to serve other systems too (sony e mouth). Also sigma lens was great on my e-pm1, but on my gm1, leica is better. It gives me control on aperture, while it is flimsy by camera much easier to do by aperture ring.

What a story, what a courage and what a bounty! Last seconds of the video... OMG, I want to take honey shower with those golden drops from a massive %100 hive.

Thanks for the fantastic effort of all and the sponsors too.

Ben O Connor: It can use as a great close-up portrait glass.

https://flic.kr/p/qzthje

You can achieve very detailed close-ups, mistakens you to think it is a macro lens

https://flic.kr/p/LAFzzW

And of course, when you have a below F 2.0 lens coupled with high ISO generator (a.k.a. Panasonic cameras), you want to use aperture at the lowest. But also you can keep ISO lowest and aperture lowest (F16 for this one) is also gives you pleasant photos.

I love my GEORGE LENS!

"George lens" is the nickname given by the Aussie blogger Blunty to it. Well he got very good reasons right about the first minutes of the video. Check yourselves :)

Beauty of this lens is... Well certainly I own one! How beautiful is that :)

But seriously, when you shot a 16:9 aspect, what it see is very close to 35mm if not exactly the 35mm. Of course, in 4:3 form, which is natural to its sensor, it is 30mm. But trust me, you don't want to take of squished to 35mm, or you don't want to be staying far as 28mm. In 4:3 terms, when you photographing 30mm and full hd video 16:9 35mm angle.

Such a perfect lens. I strongly recommend to users/owners of that lens to have polariser filters. Having that lens in landscapes, sun is behind or side of you, blue sky or reflecting lake, with F4 or even greater, at ISO 200 or even lower if possible. Images becomes delightful. Your eye can taste things :)
