In Topic: GH4 with 14-42mm lens or LX100?

Yeah, need to wait for more review. Sadly EOSHD is very slow in updating their site, and I don't think they take point and shoot seriously. They haven't even review the FZ1000 in detail yet.

From CameraLabs: " I'd understand if the LX100 took the whole frame width to maintain coverage before scaling it, as indeed it does for 1080p, but instead it takes a crop somewhere between the full width and the actual 4k dimensions and scales that."

 

I think this imply that the LX100 take a crop between 11M (for 16:9) and 8M then scale to 4K, like taking the 10M area and scale to 8M instead of a 1:1 crop like the GH4. Besides that, he mention the IS on the LX100 is not as good as the previous Lumix. Of course this will need to be verify for upcoming review and real world user test in Youtube. But putting a M43 sensor in such small body to provide smooth PowerIS could be a challenge, it wouldn't surprise me if some of the IS were done with software instead of optic. Not having CinemaD and Cinema 24fps could also make it less of a real pro level point and shoot.

 

I ordered my GH4 for US$280 less than the price everywhere so I pulled the plug. I'm not going to buy the NA-GH4 housing until some time next month. I have been pricing the NA-GH4 housing with the set up I need, it would cost around US$3000, which is enough to buy a LX100 and the housing for the LX100 (if Nauticam do make it), but I need to be convinced that the LX100 is more if not as versatile as the LX-7 especially when come to wide angle. I will be moving to Florida soon so I think it's time to be serious about Wide Angle for shark, wreck etc instead of small stuffs that I typically see in South East Asia.

Thanks Peter! I'm starting out with the 14-45mm with diopter first as I have an upcoming trip to Anilao in March. I will move to Florida next Summer so then I can justify buying dedicated WA lens and port. You should be able to use the 12-35mm lens under the Zen dome port right?

Looks like the Video feature of the LX100 has been compromised:
