On Panasonic reveals Lumix DMC-GF7 with tilting LCD article (78 comments in total)

Not looks as good as my GM1, but I wish I would have a svivel screen too!

Its brilliantly designed Fn button also will be 2nd shutter! Ergonomically, SUPERB.

Such Tele lens better to have IS. Sad but true; disappointing specs.

In reply to:

Retzius: Are these lenses made in Korea or in China?

Does it matter ? IPhone made in China, while they produce horrible domestic branded cars!

Its all brand (price) issue, not country.

I was hoping to see AF... Disappointment!

Now I'll search for M39, or M42 mouthed 200mm F2.8 or 135mm as well.

On Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article (263 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They could make a body or hand grip (like Panasonic did for gh4, not necessarily bulky as the video grip) , which would suit 5100,5200,5300. And even maybe suitable for 3100,3200,3300 series, and built it many in numbers, would drop the costs and selling better etc etc.

Instead they made a whole new camera (or did they?) which has GPS (that others can track you!) and Wi-Fi (which would not work for my window phone anyway!).

End of the day; there is D810! Why would I spend a single cent for anything else from Nikon! (forgot to mentioned D4s, D750 are also cool stuff.. But man! That ovf and shutter voice... And off camera jpegs ! Amazing!)

Actually anyone can track anyone else; as far as gsm connectivity allows. For further tracking it required more advanced stuff.

But at the same time; " dude, why do you worry to be tracked? Are you in to bad things ?" Kinda question bugle minds...

On Leica issues T (Typ 701) firmware update article (69 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: I would understand all the comprimises, if it woupd be an M mouth camera. No need to be full rame, but the pyscal size of the lens should be M size! It feels so fake to me (even the design looks better than ordinary)

That is also true :) as long as M has no autofocus mechanism, what is the difference between using it with/without adapter!

On Have your say: Best Lens of 2014 article (119 comments in total)

My free decision is; Leica 15mm F 1.7

Its also belong to this year. Lightning fast focusing, closest focus range is almost "macro" feeling. Very usefull angle (wide for landscape, sharp for portrait). Just "The Real Best" to me.

In reply to:

papa natas: You mean to tell me that you took this BEAUTIFUL image with a 250$-puny 1/1.7" sensor-amateur-dedicated-3 years old-camera?
Why, didn't you use the Olympus-OM-DE-M5?
Nor the Sony a7 II, nor any of its price winner sisters?
What about the Canon-EOS-7D-Mark II?
Aren't you aware that it takes at least a 5000$ photo gear in your bag to be creative?
What a sacrilege!!
Are you a Communist?
Don't you hold any respect for consumerism?
People like you ruins the economy, not to mention the normal flow and glow of our bonfire of vanities.
You, and your little camera should be banned for life from this prestigious temple of consumerism.

That is a compliment, I wished to heared of :)
