Ben O Connor: Dear leica, please make such lens for microfourthirds.What a beautiful combo it would be with a GM1

Alright alright... Forget about it. Leica don't do such thing. Because I don't ask ever!

What I meant was the outlook. Beautifully designed fully manual and foldable lena. Something tiny and made of a metal. By Leica

Ben O Connor: Such a dream type of a customers apple has. They have willing to pay up to 1.000€ for a phone, which has NOTHING ELSE but more memory than its 32gb version (799€) and that 800€ basic model has NOTHING BETTER than android ones internally...

Well, good news for Apple and Chinese economy!

Well the article is about "financial reality". Apple has the best of somethings no doubt. But what they charge for it, is ABSURD! And their customers loves it. Or at least ok with it.

I always think Arri (Arriflex as I know) became history, just like my Austrian Eumic camera... Great to know some camera brands keep doing their jobs even after digital revolution.

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.

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.
