rsf3127: I have just arrived from a three week long trip to Asia. FOr what I have seem in the hands of people and the availability in stores, their camera demography are a bit different form the rest of the world.
1. Many Canon, mostly entry level and with kit lenses. M bodies are still scarce.
2. Many Sony, mostly fullframe.
3. Some Nikon DSLRs, usually midrange.
4. A bit of Fuji, mostly XT-20 and XE.
5. Olympus are very rare outside Japan and HK. Panasonic seems a bit more widespread, and tourists are going for it.
6. Pentax only in Japan and in the hands of a few European tourists. Very rare.

Olympus very rare outside Japan and HK? Olympus is fairly common in the mirrorless department in the Netherlands. Might as well be in other European country's.

ZeBebito: Excellent video, another proof that a good eye can produce excellent images regardless of gear. Those M-lenses are a real bargain.

Agreed. It's all about the artist, less about gear.

Rich Evans: If you think these images look as good as a APS-C you must be smoking something and i want that. These images have the look and feel of Micro 43: noisy, low dynamic range and poor color reproduction.

BUT, if you can't see it and all looks the same. More power to you, since you can spend less money on less powerful cameras. Oh wait, you can't cos this costs as much as a full frame camera.

And yet more than 80% of your Frontpage posts are MFT related... A system you have no interest in whatsoever.

J A C S: Very nice photos and colors but the IQ is mediocre at best.

Always nice to attract a troll (and off course without a photo gallery). But your comments on different subjects say everything. To much trolls at DPR, it's time DPR does something about the obvious trolls.

Perfect fit for 99% of us it seems. Or do you have any photos in your gallery that suggest you are with the 1% who needs better IQ?

MFT has a oversized mount on purpose. That way lens design can be better also for the corners.

jst13: Who needs a 10MP cam with thislow light capabilities ? No ibis and at a pricing point i could by a Full frame camera?
A Fuji x-T2 as only one example has better low light performance, 24MP and cost less money

O, please.. You must be smoking some serious stuff. This is aimed for video, the X-T2 is a joke at that department, actually Fuji as a company is a joke in that department.

AshMills: I guess Sony will be releasing versions of the A7SII without IS soon? Oh, they did, it was called the Mk1.

And maybe we see some working weather sealing in the Mark VI models of the A7 and A9 series.

vesa1tahti: D500 is the winner. APS-C vs MFT. Almost of the same size. Better OVF, etc, etc...

To bad you need to mount ff lenses on that APS-C camera if you want the same quality. Also the D500 doesn't have ibis, only a tilting LCD, smaller viewfinder magnification, slower max shutter speed and no electronic shutter, slower continues drive, 4K at only 30p and is heavier,

The current D500 market price is more expensive that the G9 price which will come down a little bit when it's on the market.

No doubt that the D500 is a really nice camera but to pronounce it as winner... lol.

Vivid1: I am not suprised...
Maybe because Canon design cameras for practical use by real photographers rather than winning dpreview awards :-)

A lot of people live in regions where it's raining a lot of the time (GB, Netherlands, Ireland, Norway) or where the humidity is high (Indonesia, Philippines, Brazil, Vietnam). So yes, as a pro you want a camera that has a good weather sealing even if you are not planning on using the camera in the rain.

Edmond Leung: Another great lens for the Olympic Games! Interesting to count number of black lenses vs. white lenses in the Olympic Games... even though all dslr are black in color

It would be interesting to see that kind of statistics at the Olympics. Hoe many professional photographers are at the Olympics and what brand do they use. It would also be nice to see if Pentax, Sony, Fuji, Panasonic en Olympus can gain some share at the Olympics.

Link | Posted on Jan 9, 2018 at 09:03 UTC

Just in time for the Olympics I guess. Good work from Nikon and nice to see that they invest in development of such specialist lenses. I think that Nikon is far from over as some suggest.

Next year in the Sony E-mount APS-C lineup is a silver A6500? Can't wait...
I do like the black one better. Silver is only nice if it's a retro or old SLR style body, and the A6xxx is clearly not retro.
Also a picture of the back would be nice.

Jefftan: The message that Sony APS-C is not dead is more important than the lens itself

It gives more confidence for anyone buying an expensive A6500 camera

no one like a dead system, using FE lens not an option

@Zxaar; MFT is not superior, no system is. Every camera system is a combination of compromises. MFT fits me much better than anything Sony offers. But if I wanted to go APS-C I would choose the Fuji way. At least they put some effort in it and don't threat there APS-C customers as second rate users that must buy FF lenses if they want glass with decent quality.

Nice, but I think I will go the Olympus way if I needed that kind of lens;

The release of this lens doesn't give me confidence at all. It only empowers my believes that Sony still doesn't take APS-C seriously and sees it only as a step to FF. I have no interest in going FF so my only options are, if I want serious lenses made for the sensor I choose; Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus.

BostonC: Sounds much like a Panasonic Lumix 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6, that's 67x75mm at 265g.

However 140mm on MFT is equivalent to 187mm on APS-C. The Panasonic has much more reach.
