I wish i could buy another. AF slow as old woman death, but man the raw files were so easy to edit and make niceMe too - sort of....In my case, it will be to replace my ageing G12! It has been a trusty carry-along - but is now ready for retirement. I actually took one of my most commercially successful shots on it - testimony to the fact that light, subject, timing and framing are more important than the gear you have with you at the time!
I would say typically a M43 is better than this. But this one is pocketable and a 1" sensor is about the minimum sensor size to get decent A4 and bigger prints ( a bit of a sweeping generalisation as my old G12 produced decent prints at the time). Alot of these pocket cameras I've ended up with scratched lens. I wonder is the lens protected any better than previous versions. But its real strength is its small size. You can carry it always.Help me out those of you have have spent a good deal of time with this format. How does this hold up against M43? I thought that format would be a great travel size for me but the noise level over 3200 iso was a deal breaker (Olympus Pen F) I just went back to lugging the FF around and making the iphone 8 be my small camera. I do have an S95 which isn't too shabby so how much better is the G series over that?
Sure it would be, but sadly no amount of improved manufacturing process and extra computing power is going to make a difference in physics. Could they make a similar focal length lens in that size? Maybe? Would it cost so much that it's not worth it? Most probably.So it is faster. That's it? F1.4-2.0 lens would be something...
Like a 28-84mm f1.4-2.0 lens (to keep dimensions small enough). That'd be a change. Now as it is, this camera is only faster which I don't need.Sure it would be, but sadly no amount of improved manufacturing process and extra computing power is going to make a difference in physics. Could they make a similar focal length lens in that size? Maybe? Would it cost so much that it's not worth it? Most probably.
It wouldn't be the first time:Wait, what? Are they really using a Sony sensor?
Disagree, I much prefer this style of screen. It's faster to tilt and much less obtrusive for street/travel photography. The fully articulated screens are nice for slow paced landscape photography and the like, but they're a bit unwieldy for the types of photography I do.Tilt screens suck balls. Swivel the thing, how hard can that be?
