Yake: So maybe that innovative 4-, 5- and 6-stop shadow lifting isn't such a big selling point.

Canon lenses are better than Nikon/Sony
you can check 35L II or even 135L

in fact even Sigma lenses are better than Nikon / Sony

Dedecos: Honestly, at this price, if you don´t care too much about IQ and high iso, I prefer the Sony RX10 IV. Better deal, more fun. And, I don´t know, but the images in the Sony gallery look like more sharp and with better results in low light.

just use you phone to take pic

enrique santa: The only wrong thing with this cam is the sensor. 3 years ago I sold all my m4/3 lenses and cams and never look back. M 4/3 is a dead way. No sense at least with no new sensor tech, of this kind of monster cams and really expensive lenses. Of course everyone can waste their money like they desire.

The G and GH lines are dead
big, bulky and expensive

Only GX / Range finder series+lenses cheaper than 1000 USD makes some sense

Edmond Leung: Looks like a very nice lens.
But once again.... it is really big and heavy.
Can you talk with Leica if they can improve these two issues?

@brendon1000

have you tried to shoot with canon 135L, which was debuted over 20 years ago?

vscd: @dpreview
Thanks for those uninfluenced and objective reviews. While some magazines hyped the new Multishot-Mode with "170 Mpixel" you write as it is: "you could get this same benefit by shooting four Raws and stacking them with any camera".

That's journalism as it should be and not copy/paste from marketing-handouts of the companies. I deeply thank you for that. That's what I call a Review.

"you could get this same benefit by shooting four Raws and stacking them with any camera"
ONLY REFERS TO THIS BENEFIT:
"advantage of a ~2EV noise / dynamic range benefit"

Not the pixel-shift benefit

Mikael Risedal: of course it is, the white balance, colors , curves and jpg motor is so much advanced in iPhone compared to the SLR, if we had the same calculations in Canon or Nikon we got a much better results due the lenses and sensor size. BUT the iPhone, Samsung etc is so much more advanced regarding output JPG than any SLR today.
Processing power and internal enumerations are so much greater in an iPhone or Samsung etc COMPARED TO ANY SLR.

I am surprised people don't think iPhone takes better OOC JPG.
Perhaps you don't even own any smartphone ?

Some DSLR is priced above USD 2000
I wonder why they can't put an ARM processor in it for better JPG rendering ?

TimT999: It's such a surprise to read the DP comments. So many folks who know exactly what's wrong with the new Apple laptops. ... But none of the commenters (including myself) have used these new machines. We don't know how fast these laptops are. Don't know how well integrated the new touch bar functionality and the OS are.

The folks who harp about this or that being missing don't get how Apple works, their all-around approach. These machines are gonna hit the sweet spot for most photographer users. And the fact that the new 13" model is about the same size and weight as the 13" Air (but with retina display and all that power) is particularly appealing to photographers like me who travel.

I think any grade 6 kid should know I am talking about physical escape key.

It is a touch keyboard - there are other laptop / convertible with touch keyboard - try lenovo yoga if you have never typed on a touch keyboard

Robert Zanatta: Did Apple do away with the 3.5mm headphone jack?

It is just to make sure iPhone 7 users are going to buy
A new USB to lightening cable to connect to iPhone
And the new wireless headphone - air pods from apple
as iPhone 7 owners cannot use the one that comes with iPhone 7

I don't need to use the new MacBook Pro to find out it is missing the escape key, SD Card reader / USB 3.0 port

And the typing experience on bufferfly keyboard

davemac00: MS Surface looks more and more appealing. Once you're in an app (programme for grown ups) the OS stops being important.

I think many Mac users switched to Mac since Win XP
so they do not know Windows is now much better and safer

In reply to:

Angrymagpie: Are they going to make an external keyboard with the touchbar? Without such a thing, I wouldn't be able to take advantage of the function when I have an external monitor, keyboard and trackpad attached to the laptop at a work station.

I wondered why doesn't apple
just add the touch bar and keep the F keys and escape key?
Apple can make a slightly smaller trackpad

And do people really like the butterfly keyboard ?
I thought most people hate it?

I think it makes sense to make a thinnest MacBook / MacBook Air
by giving up the F keys / normal keyboard

Hey, but this is MacBook PRO
usability should be the top priority and portability should come second

barreto_co: Bought a MS Surface Pro 3 in 2014 as a replacement to my MBP. Was not sure how I would handle after more than 10 years as an ardent Apple fan. Haven't looked back. Windows 10 is fine. The difference between macOS and Windows 10 is not as great as previous versions (Apple is still slightly better). Love the touchscreen in MS Surface as Apple doesn't want to dent their iPad sales so they don't put it on MBP. My Mac Pro has been replaced by a PC computer which is 4 times more powerful and one third cheaper. Just small incremental technologic advancements but my 2012 iMac 27" will be replaced by MS Surface Studio 28" with all its innovations (Dial, touchscreen, use of screen upright or as a tablet, etc.).

Microsoft is heading to the right direction without Steve, while
Apple is heading to the wrong direction without Steve

Apple is losing market shares to Microsoft

Naveed Akhtar: Silver again .. really
Even the shutter shock is gone ..
and now the small size is cons? in GX8 the big size was?
dpppppp??

It is a commercial decision
They cannot give gold award to midend camera
Or how does panny going sell the flagship camera (GX8)?

joe6pack: I don't understand how camera companies can claim removing AA filter as a feature. What is their solution of dealing with aliasing then? It seems all the manufacturer cares is benchmark.

why don't you just search for "moire correction" in google?

what you said applies to noise:
"When signal is lost, they are lost, and there is no way to "enhance" them. Regardless of how much CPU/GPU power you have"
obviously, noise reduction is useful since human is not a computrer

In reply to:

Angrymagpie: A great offering. But the articulated EVF is such an amazing feature, too bad it's not available in this form factor. Though I suspect if it did, it'd cannibalised on the sale of gx8..

I hate the GX7 EVF
It makes the camera much more bulky

In reply to:

Raist3d: So some questions- did they allow exposure compensation in manual mode with auto ISO?

And is this the same old m4/3rds sensor or a new 16MP sensor?

EC in manual mode with auto ISO is VERY USEFUL

Because CPU is now powerful enough to do moire correction in-camera?

Shake Reduction: Hey, another slow m4/3 zoom!

The lens is indeed a "24-120 F7-F11".....
but who cares......since FF version of "24-120 F7-F11" does not exist

I care about the pocket-ability of m43 system, which I can use to take nice photos 90% of the time

there are moments where a FF lens wins

That's why there are many DSLR users who owns 1" sensor camera / m43
