On article Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 sample gallery (180 comments in total)

It's hard to find another m43 lens that's this small and offer this kind of optical quality. It's sharp across all apertures, and the color transmission and contrast seem to best all other m43 lenses that I own. I just wish it were weather sealed.

On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Leica 8-18mm F2.8-4 (162 comments in total)

Looks like a compelling choice for m43 users who want a superwide that can take filters.

Can she even be identified from the image? Hardly.
Did Chipolte profit off her likeness? Realistically no, another person or manikin could have taken her place with the same effect.
Should Chiplolte still have used the photo without her consent, probably not. In fact, it's probably now worse that they asked her for consent. I'm not sure how the law would apply if a person is not recognizable or identifiable.

I started with a Minolta x700. I thought I was a baller when I moved on to the Canon Elan IIe.

I have to laugh. Is this even legal? What about the patents that canon holds with this lens?

grcolts: I agree the price seems high for m4/3rds, especially when one could purchase the new full-frame Pentax K1 for around $1800. I imagine the new Panasonic GH5 will be at least that price or higher.

The price does seem high. Though I probably wouldn't buy the GH5 either, at least the GH series seems to be a good value for what it's intended purpose is. I bet the GH5's video capability and operation will smoke anything in it's price range.

burnymeister: Makes my A7SII purchase at just over $2k seem almost cheap and that camera takes photos and videos in the dark. Literally.

I loved shooting with the Pen-F this past summer but Olympus and other m43 manufacturers are playing the wrong game here. They should be going for SMALL, LIGHT, WEATHERPROOF gear.

They should not be chasing the FF crowd.

Panasonic G85

With the GH5 on the horizon, I can't see a ton of people jumping on this camera at this price, especially if their current M43 gear is holding up fine. Also, I've learned to hold my enthusiasm and wait to get good deals (new or used) for M43 gear. I just can't justify paying that price even though I would like to own one. The whole draw of this M43 system for me was that it was smaller and cheaper. The latter is turning out to be false.

KameraFever: This is impressive for such a small camera. I hope they put this same sensor, processor, and AF into the next RX10; I would be all over it.

I hear you. Which is why if you buy a Sony camera, make sure it has all the features which you really want, otherwise their likely to come out with the next version with those features 6 months to a year later. However, despite careful thought, Sony will still likely come up with new awesomeness that you didn't see coming. Then the value of your relatively new but previous version Sony camera suffers. So, you take the hit to buy new awesomeness and gulp while someone else gets a killer deal as you sell your previous version camera, because no one wants it at it's true value. Your elated when to unbox your new version of the camera, take some pics, and go to bed feeling good. Life gets busy, you snag a few photos and videos here and there, but not enough to justify the price, but swear your going to make great use of it next summer. Next summer comes, the new new version of the camera is released. You think "F my life. I should have just kept my old version and took photos."

KameraFever: Spec monster and with that $1400 price tag, it still offers a $600 control scheme.

Fujica, I agree with you on what you pointed out. It's still also a spec monster in that it seems to be the only camera that offers oversampled 4k, IBIS, and damn great AF in that price category. Sure, it has it's downfalls, but there is ferarri under the hood in that camera in terms of AF, video, IBIS, and sensor quality. It's just damn cripple by the controls. When approaching those prices, I would assume the design and tactile usability would be much better. So, it's a spec monster, but a crippled one.

peeyaj: This would slaughter the Fuji Xt2!

Not likely, as I am already entrenched in fujifilm and Panasonic gear. I Ike Sony specs, but their lack of dedication to their lens, control scheme, and APS-C system in general is a deterrent.

SwissSwiss: I wonder if Sony intentionally trolled Fuji by picking today to release this info? As Fuji release lot of FW updates today.

I don't think Fuji has anything to worry about; Fuji has sculpted out a clearly defined path and approach to their camera design. The real attraction of this camera will be budget filmmakers and videographers.

KameraFever: Great! Hopes this puts poor pressure on other companies to deliver similar spec'd products and similar price points. Canon, are you listening?

Hmm... I take that back. I just refreshed the page and saw a $1400 price point. That is a little too crazy with it's control scheme.

It theoretically should slaughter it on specs, but damn Sony, could you please put out some quality lenses and commit to the format like Fuji?

Looks like a wonderful little video making tool. Sure, the a6300 has it's limitations, but I don't think there is another camera out there this small that can take that kind of footage, especially in low light.

I agree with others here that this probably means the end of development. Google essentially overpaid for the company to have exclusive rights to the image editing algorithms which they plan to implement in Google Photos and mobile platforms. Free may be good for our short term enjoyment, but the Nik suite will slowly become more and more unsupported to it's eventual death. Nik was really on to something special until Google purchased it.
