On Panasonic confirms Lumix G 25mm F1.7 article (124 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: I have no idea how the optics work!

Same F number, but 5mm more than 20mm, yet not a pancake! Stop talking like "yeah, but it has to be wider!" My same aperture 15mm Leica is bulkier! And 17mm 1.8 Olympus is also bulkier than 20mm....

Personal choice; 15mm 1.7 Leisonic, 45mm 1.8 Olympus, 35-100 4-5.6 Panasonic Compact, Raynox 250 macro converter and GM1. I am one happy amateur, who has everything he needs EVER !

Price of 25mm is promising! Hopefully this part of the world it will touch 199€, where touched by Olympus 45mm 1.8. (as low as 179€) Positive thing about this one, no folding mechanism/design such as pancakes... I never say never, untill I have 15mm Leica. Bokeh is fan-tas-tic! Best portrait ever :)

It feels that phones are ridiculously high priced (For example 16GB iPhone 6plus sells around 650€ in Finland; which you can buy a 32" tv 400€ and a mediocre laptop around 250€!). And another highly priced stuff is the digital cameras! (especially interchangeable lens ones!)

If producers change their price policy things can be better.

And I wish to see a Noki...Microsoft! Phone, which enables to attach MicroFourThirds lenses or C mouth lenses! That would be so fun;

Why is it called "Phone" still ? It is a genuine"communicators" , they can able anyone to communicate via internet or any other way of talking, writing etc.

Cameras are aim to take photo, and its just that! It would be very awkward to see someone talking to someone via his/her camera :D

I felt weird to see in YouTube; camerastore vlogers were playing angry birds in Samsung android camera! :)

On Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens article (303 comments in total)

If it has to be a single focal lens for one lens only, 35mm sounds the most suitable focal length, but it has to be at least F1.8

Its never pocketable anyway! So, at least give something enough unique to own Fuji!

It took 12 Pen (E-P1,2,3,5 E-PL1,2,3,5,6,7 E-PM1,2) and 4 OMD (E-M5,5II, 1, 10) models to put things back in track since 2008!

Wow Olympus. Way to go!

On Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview (448 comments in total)

If it would be a beauty contest; T-10 would be the winner without a doubt! Sadly there is no where near beautiful ones in the Microfourthirds... with an EVF.

@supeyugin1| I wish you would be right. As a owner of a Lumia 1520, which has no hiccups, amazing camera, great this... And that... Apps comes late to windows app store. Forexamlle; I have a GM1 but can't use any wifi feature, coz apps are avaliable for android and apple only!

Windowsphones impressive even superior hardware, lack of support can makes you mad sometimes!

Because; Nokia is dead (in terms of mobile phone brand), while Sony goes strong with "Xperia" brand in mobile communication department. I believe they wish to use Zeiss optics & technology on Xperia tables and phones...

Or maybe they already using it but under a different name... So it includes all, without brand. Which is a huge advertisement value.
