    Borbarad reacted to Andrew Reid in Olympus E-M1 II mini-review - a sign of things to come with the Panasonic GH5?   
    I think they definitely need to show E-M1X early adopters some love, seen as though they just gave away all our fancy features for free to E-M1 II users.

    Borbarad got a reaction from webrunner5 in Olympus E-M1 II mini-review - a sign of things to come with the Panasonic GH5?   
    I slightly disagree. They designed the EM1X with the fastest 120 FPS EVF. And until about 3mth there was no alternative. So Olympus got caught on the wrong foot here.
    Image Quality, I think is very good. Maybe they could have gone with 24MP... but the key is not the sensor but processing power.
    AF is also very and there are now really really good BIF examples available that where not possible beforehand. Yes, it could always be better. But I would be satisfied now
    My personal guess in about October we will get the 2.0 Firmware with the release date for 150-400 F4.5.....

    Well, the thing everyone needs to consider now is what is actually possible. The Firmware 3.0 is working flawlessly on basically three year old E1MKII.
    Now the E1Mx has twice the power, better cooling. Just imagine what a 2.0 firmware could do!
    For me the EM1x only has two real downsides: no top status display which is a requirement for such a body and the 120 FPS EVF is now already superseded. And it’s priced in with an 500,- Euro discount ( 300,- cash back now). I’ll bet in 3-4 month you can get one for 2400,-.
    Anyway,  I will exchange my GH5 for one by the end of this year.

    Borbarad got a reaction from webrunner5 in Back on the ball - a word about the lack of updates at EOSHD recently   
    Well, the E1 is the best DSLR body ever designed. Still have mine. The one next is the SL and very shortly thereafter the EM1X.
    live ND is great but only makes sense at the highest setting.
    the handheld high resolution is great, scenery permitting. Definitely a great bonus, especially considering the improvement in ISO performance. You wouldn’t believe that’s from m4/3.
    video wise I like what I’ve seen. The 60fps is a bummer because for wildlife that would habe been great, e.g. slow down a starting eagle.
    As I wrote I will get one... only depends on what’s on the upcoming lens roadmap. 12-100 is awesome but F4... 12-40 is great but no is and I had one before I went Gh5 + 12-60 ... so I’m still looking. The long stuff is easy as I have the 300mm

    Oh well despite the 28-70 F2 this isn’t something to look forward.
    And this means the path is free for Panasonic‘s Fullframe PDAF GH5 ?

    The best optical  standard zoom I've used so far is the Olympus Zuiko Top Pro 4/3 14-35mm F2.0
    Second would be the 24-90 F2.8-4.0 Leica Vario for the SL.

    Borbarad got a reaction from Rinad Amir in GH5 - What lenses?   
    I hav but only for stills ( not much time for videos lately). It's a great lens. About the same as the 42.5. Size and weight a perfect match for the GH5. I really love the Aperture ring. The price is okish, like the 42.5 still on the high side.  
     
    One of my m4/3 recommended lenses.

    The EM1 MKII is better for sure, but the GH5 narrowed that gap by a large chunk so that from an overall perspective you're better off with the GH5. And I've been a longtime Olympus user ( since the E1)

    Well it depends really...
    I've watched hundreds of YouTube videos but most of them aren't good apart from the likes of Neumannfilms or setup videos.
    I have the GH5 and I think it's the best m4/3 and one of the best hybrids. Is it great a blogging? Probably not as AF is the most important part ( and not IQ). But if you like more the documentary style it's amazing. Versatile, small, lots of functions and feature, great IQ and excellent handling.
    Also in stills it's a great camera. I used the GH4 before and it sucked in stills due to the horrible AF. Now the GH5 is a relief, nearly as good as the EM1 MKII and with the 300mm F4 you're now able to successful catch birds in flight. Also the 6k Photo mode is very useful.
    And one of the most underrated points of the GH5 is the heavily improved image quality and colors. 
    So, I really like the GH5 - it's a massive improvement from the GH4 in stills and movie.

    Borbarad got a reaction from photographer-at-large in The Leica SL as upgrade for Sony A7R II shooters   
    The review is not bad. Most of the cons are about right,  but they got it very wrong on the body design. Complete opposite for me. I think it's a masterpiece. Best DSLR Type body out there.
    And there is one other point I think they misjudged:  Leica has a Start advantage comparable to Canon and Nikon in regards to a professional mirrorless workhorse camera. Count this with the optical outstanding lenses and the partnership with Panasonic in regards to Video the next SL should be a hard one to ignore.

    Lot of wrong stuff in one single post. Leica Hater by the way?
    1.) The viewfinder is 4.4MP  with a 1280×1024 pixel resolution and the Panel is Epson. The optics, design etc. is by Leica.
    2.) The lenses/optics are made and designed by Leica. Panasonic has made the design specifications in regards to Zoom Function and Video AF. That's why it's a joint venture. The whole AF System/ Motor  and how the elements are moving is a Leica own design.
    3) The video functions has been designed mainly by Panasonic and Leica bought also the Vlog knowledge - very similar to the GH4. This has first off all nothing to do with the Sensor.
     
    But its fun to read Leica bashing....

    Nice read!
    The Leica SL is one of the best designed 35mm bodies of all time (borrows a lot from the S System). I'm always torn about to buy or not to buy. However,  I'm an Leica M user (and the M10 is just so damn sexy..... just waiting for the P version) and my second camera is the GH4 soon to be replaced by the GH5.
    But again the SL body is just brilliant and the crystal clear EVF is the best by lightyears. I also cannot understand the success of the Sony. Yes the sensors are great , but everything else form handling, usability and durability is.... plainly awful ....  a 299,- of the shelf horror design.
    What definitely will be interesting is the next SL in about 2 years! That could be a killer if Leica gets their hands on the GH5 stuff.
    In the meantime we will see the next S, a major upgrade.
