On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (715 comments in total)

Dear DPR,

I know technology is improving and those small sensors (with smaller than 1") p&s are history now. But it still bugle my mind "aren't those cameras in the same segment are point and shoot cameras?"

In the other hand; I love to compare their skills with other Interchangeable lens cameras... But then it keeps to be confusing. For example; how come its built quality outperformed weather sealed bodies of other candidates (such as E-M1) or does it really focusing higher than GH4 ? Really?

Thanks for your effort testing all those technology. I made my decision to buy XZ-1 back in 2011 thanks to your review. And I always use your studio samples even now. Many new buyers around the world does take your opinions very seriously. We like you.

Seems like, quite a camera here! Back then Olympus XZ -1 was able to reach gold medal by 74 points abs and now it 85!!!! Its impressive.

However, as an owner of couple lenses, I want to stay on PEN bodies and I can use my glass on Lumix bodies in future. I prefer flexibility over "all singing all dancing" camera.

Forgot to mention; add on flash is ridiculous! Paying 1.000€ and still possibility to forget the thing? Which also disturbingly ugly looking one!

On Pentax 645Z added to studio comparison database article (128 comments in total)

Imagine; 35mm is actually equivalent of 24mm !!! Brother of a friend of mine is a photographic with many weird stuff and he says

"90mm is a super wide in my cameras!" And when he says "its compact", he means "camera can fold form front to back and fit to a backpack! While tripod is attached to side of the same backpack..."

Dear God, you know how much want this model of Pentax... Please allow me to win coming weekend lottery...

Amen...

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production article (208 comments in total)

nofumble: 7 axis stabization system coming soon.

Folks!

I love ibis. And without it, there is no way to be without a tri or monopods at 85mm or beyond ( consider the weight centre of the cam together with lens and the distance...). BUT

Further it goes, becomes more ridiculous! In physics there are X,Y,Z axises... And if you thin their negative side and it makes it roughly 6 axis ! And then we got time axis !!! Which has no negative side (as long as you can't invent the device to go backwards in time :) )

Toooo much axises to explain man! Took much axises :D

What are the 7axises of a thing ? Or even 18axises ??? Does it includes the "time" axis ? Will it keep its value constant? No shaken prices :D

Yeah... Because they couldn't hide the "real stuff!" So they deserves to be closed down !

Man... Brands such as Hasselblad or Leica should also consider producing 3rd party stuff. For example; if hasselblad produce this amazing piece of wood and sold it (let's say for 99€ ) they would made jack of a money.

Or leica would produce stuff like thumb grip for also Panasonic m43 stuff (lets say for 39€) they would get serious amount of cash to their bank accounts.

Panasonic listen to this;

You have made a 20mm F 1.7 pancake.... Then you made 14mm F 2.5 pancake.

Now can you make something in between and still pancake ?

Something like 17,5mm F 1.8 for example... And still pancake.

Thank you.

Ben O Connor: EISA just annoucned, They have given the "Ugliest Add on Flash" award to Panasonic.

Long story short; this camera has no superlatives over gx7. However it has the best multipurpose lens on it ever made for m43 system.

Besides gx7 is a body only camera. So its not any better at all. I wish to see smilar spec. lens even bigger (as big as Olympus 40-150 4.0-5.6)

Ben O Connor: Because "Gx7+15mm1.7+25mm1.4+45mm1.8+camera bag" are more expensive than "lx100+leather strap" !!!!!!

I haven't say, but many mist realized; M43 is an excellent compact way of system cameras. Yet ita good to have all the juice under the same "thing" .

Best of the best in compactness/image quality.

Well handled reds. I tried to take some flower fotos which were extremely red. It was very hard to define color depth etc.

Very well.
