Ben O Connor: In year 2017, I can't imagine myself, directing this thing to peoples face to shoot (their photo)! It looks like a bomb or some kinda bull-pup design austrian rifle on steroids :)

Not just size, but also shape! And it is white, which shows it larger than it really is. And all those buttons, grip around the lens... I don't know man, it is scary :)

"Protesters are marching in famous cities around the globe and shout loud and clear WE WANT GH5, WE WANT IT NOW!!!"

Aside from joke, such lovely reason for a company for delay. I wish their price would be 1.000€ body only, which would also convince more poeple to buy it instead of buying a second hand gh4.

princecody: Fuji LISTEN! Make a X100 without the rangefinder. Add touchscreen & tiltable screen.

There is one, called X70!

Ben O Connor: If it is a trip/holiday, my decision would be Pen-F & M.Zuiko 25mm F 1.8. Much easier to carry, much more sexy appeal :) also by buying that, you can keep more in your pocket to spent in your holiday!

Thanks for the great article and shots.

When micro four thirds came to market at first, it was simply beautiful. Not just easy but also was joy to carry.

Probably it is me, who loves rangefinders more than those wanna be dslr's (Lumix G, GH & Olympus OMDmodels).

Cellphones of 2012 and further are so capable as low cost pocket size computers.
No need to be slave of Apple or pay internal organs for sky high android prices.

These are sacrificed photo gear for art. I loved it. Still, I prefer the ones on the link.

WilliamJ: As I plan to cover the next Iron Man's adventures, I need it in adamantium. Could it be ?

Need adamantium... You are fired, since there is "the walking adamantium" Mr. Logan "Volverine.

Lovely cams. But X line has huge lenses. I haven't see any seious pancake or folding zooms as microfourthirds offers.
X-T2 is a video beast of Pre-GH5 era. But will it remain same ?

X-Pro is also cool but huge for sensor/body ratio since sony made full frame 7 series.

On article CES video: the Panasonic GH5 (75 comments in total)

Seems like, I have to sign out from my current job and ditch for being a photo/video professional. Damn it, those cam stuff are so good. Computers and editing stuff is also encoruging. But all expensive for such hobby/enthusiast as I am.

End of the day, I'll stick to my happy marriage and waiting for sales.

It has one thing that my GM1 lacks; tilting screen. And it executed beautifully.

Everything ticks the boxes, can't wait the L kit; couple with a leica 15mm F 1.7 silver lens.

Panasonic, F...k your product naming!!!!!!! People please give it a name, a proper one!

On article 2016 DPReview Readers' Best Shots: People (93 comments in total)

Afzal's and Rick's photos are my favorites. Photography of portraits is all about traveling to me, hence they are my picks.

If the background blow, face is visiable. If sunset seen then face is dark.
YOU CAN NOT BLOW THE BACKGROUND AND SHADE THE FACE AT THE SAME TIME!!!

A year of shame for dedicated photography... A year of victory of capturing the moment (core photography and documenting).

One word only; WOW!

Ben O Connor: When panasonic will introduce the new GM cam with 20mpx. smilar even better video or at least smilar 16mpx sensor with in body stabilization and a Mic input. For 2/3 the price (800 $/ £/ €) no-one will remember this one.

And I personally wonder, why anyone want much smaller additional screen and calling it EVF ? Seriously guys, find yourselves a Pentax apex sensor DSLR camera or just get a fujifilm hybrid one... And enjoy the photography!

I agree the comments on Lx100. For several reasons I don't own one.
I also surprised to hear; many other system owners still (prefer) to own a rx100 serieseries cam. My reason to own it, is the underwater housing. Nothing else... (I am obviously not a pro.)
