In Topic: Mirrorless Focusing

That's because the magnification is so high that there are only few mm of range where you can focus. He needed to use manual focus with peaking. It's not the camera that can't focus is the depth of field that is not there

The RX100 is a compact and generally the autofocus is great. What subject were you shooting?

It is not a matter of stops the WWL-1 is six elements the UWL-H100 is five so less glass which means less contrast. Before the WWL-1 arrived the Inon was the best. In any case non are good for video as they are not rectilinear plus the RX100 can't white balance so you need a lens that can take a push on filter. Up to now the Inon UWL-H100 in the base version has been the choice but it does have a lot of fringing outside the centre of the frame

In Topic: GH4 vs RX100 mk IV for 4k video

Yesterday, 12:37 PM

The GH4 is definitely superior for macro work. The RX100 has too little zoom and requires strong diopters that are not easy to use. The Sony doesn't white balance but the picture profiles of he Mark IV are fabulous and you can use use auto white balance with a filter on without problems this is what I achieved with the rx100 Mark II with auto
I have not yet seen a Panasonic video that can beat it. The LX100 is ok for 4K but the port system is a pain and the zoom range equally poor. You can use the Mangrove deeproof push on filter on the Inon UWL-H100. For what concerns video the WWL-1 is not rectilinear so I am not planning to use it for video

As I said I wouldn't bother with that lens it perform worse than the zoom lens and is only one stop brighter
