Dear Meike,

Please be more creative and don't be "a sony fan"! Us, Panasonic GX80 owners, that enjoys crystal clear video quality coupled with advanced IBIS, are aching for better audio quality.

Now can you please make a grip/battery/recorder combo for us and keep the price below 200€/ £/ $ ? Seriously, that panasonic lacking better audio by just adding mic-in... which even my 199€ samsung cellphone has!!!

Great and fair view. Accodring to the test shots also an accurate one. Sigma is a fantastic manufacturer of very fine optics. its F 2.8 DN Art series were perfect for M43 world. Compact, High Quality and Affordable.

This F 1.4 line however, little too big. Especailly in a world where George Lens* exist.

(George Lens= 15mm F 1.7 ´s nickname given By Aussie youtuber Blunty :)

You can say "yeah, you can generate exact same photo from exact same point, by exact field of field (mm of lens), even at the same day of the year!" But man... clouds don't lie!

Fantastic bust from sharp eyes.

Logical decision from GoPro.

They shouldn't make the same mistakes as Nokia did back in time (Best Phone maker/Just makes phones! Best&Most popular,Creator of the genre / Just makes action cams.). They definately make stuff releated to their stuff. Since they are leaving drones, they can create something new.

A tool aiming at professionals*, not me. I wish to see an additional accessory enable better audio on my GX80. Something act as an mic input, which is absent right now.

Dear Sigma; please find a woman designer to your lens factory. Noone has complain about optical quality. But lenses are horrible by outlook.

I used to own a sigma 30mm F 2.8 for my E-PM1. A wonderful field of view for streets. No distortion at all! Even it looks OK. Untill I attach the lens hood!!! A black horrible looking cheap plastic front of a shinny silver lens.

Unfortunately I don't own this lens anymore. But don't miss its outlooks really. I was about to buy a 30mm F 1.4 for my GM1. But no way, looks horrible and huge as nothing else!

Even that hideous looking nonsense huge camera body looks pretty. :)

Battery life is nowhere near a dslr, why still sticked to that shape?

My reference is the graph. It mentions D500 has 1240shots battery life. Pretty longer than all other mirrorless EVF bodies.

While almost every other brand manufacture out of their original country, Hasselblad stayed where they started. Great, informative, admiring article.

At a photography fair/convention in Helsinki, I was able to hold the camera and had a shot. Fantastic piece of machinery. Pleased to know its story.

Apologies... why? They are payed to be slave customers. They love to threat that way. They even defends Apple on this such event in the beginning :)

Please Apple. Don't insult your slaves/donaters. No excuse ever needed.

Ben O Connor: - First; cameras on cell phone (I am talking Nokia, even Ericsson here!!!)
- Then; Front facing cameras (Nokias to Iphones)
- Nowadays; adding another lens (and sensor, hence camera !!!!) on the back.
- Soon tripple cam!!!!!

And prices are leaving the solar system behind...

Adding a new model to product range in every 3 months makes things expensive! Cost of R&D ever climbing!
It is at a ridiculous level now; noone knows what is their phone is capable before they buy a new one!

Totally illogical. Another illogical thing is, copyright wars! My 2013 made nokia Lumia 1520 is well capapble to do ANYTHING that my 2016 made Samsung J5. But it can´t (wifi connection to my Panasonic cameras, remote controling of Youtube on my samsung tv´s smart app, or even screen sharing to tv!!) The only reason is copyright issues!!!! So all capable, even in some areas more capable than samsung phone, that lumia 1520 (charges wireless, has 4k image stabilised cam, full 1080 HD screen, double tap oipenning screen, gorilla glassed...whatever) is almost obselete now! Stupidity, nothing serve consumer anymore, consumers serving to the companies, which has no country, no citizens... but yet enslave the globe and its all resources of any kind!'

Long story short; we have a problem
