    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    No I want to get wider, it was just thats what I had on hand to start. I am in the process of picking up the 30mm f1.4 Sigma prime for the DSLR.. I am also all hooked on reviews and info on the ODM system and the Fuji Xe1 reviews.. That Fuji looks amazing, and with a f1.4 prime in its...

    Just found that Sigma locally (well incountry which is as close to locally as I can expect).. Someone needs to take my plastic away from me ;) !!

    God damn.. I thought I was out but they keep pulling me back in !!! Just as I thought I had it mapped out for my trial and errors.. That comes up.. And looking at some flickr shots, that lens takes some really nice shots, totally in the style of what I think I want to achieve.. Sigh.. Yet...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Thats an area I hope to work on and toy with.. But I think now, its at the stage where simply reading more reviews, more specs, more comparisons.. Isnt helping much.. Not that it isnt great to see people take the time to put up demonstration shots, thats super helpful !! I need to just get...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Well I sort of want to like the format.. I am selling it to myself.. Theres no reason I cant 'add' a MFT setup instead of it being either or.. If I end up not carrying the APSC / DSLR setup.. Or craving full frame body, I will at least have learnt that and will have to make the sacrifices of...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Well I had a bunch of developments and an interesting day.. First off posts on dpreview turned me onto the high ISO ability and all round appeal of the ODM.. I had to be in town at the mall and got to hold one, but it wasnt a powered up demo so no shooting it it.. All I can say is thats an...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    I have asked this on dpreview in both M43 and EOS sections.. I have to say I am really impressed with the OM-D EM-5 shots I have just seen.. The in body stabalization and high ISO performance is nice and flickr is showing some shots just how I like them. Also while less relevant I like the...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    This is sort of what I am feeling.. And then I am on that steep slippery slope of 5d thoughts again.. Another forum has users telling me the LX7 and other compacts but I really dont think they appreciate the DOF / Bokeh / and light combo. Sorely tempted to just order up a GH2 and Voitlander...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Well thats the minimum I am thinking.. As yet no ones shown me that kind of bokeh and subject isolation, in low light, with a compact. And also to get f1.4 on an APS-C size sensor is only a couple hundred USD for me. Even the voitlander manual focus lens, which shows shallow DOF, but not seen...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Well I used spray and pray as I am trying to emphasize I am not a mad keen photographer with super skills. I do know how my camera works, and I do use aperture priority often, but I am also trying to get shots in very marginal light, in a rough environment, so dont get the consistency with my...

    Thanks to all responders for systems to look into, later when I have a bit of time.. I will go and check review on each and try to dig out flickr sets and images for the kit mentioned. As of right now tho.. the systems have to convincingly beat a APS-C D450 and F1.4 50mm prime (of course...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Hi Please dont take my questions as arugument.. As I prefaced, I am very much a happy snapper so happy for advice. I didnt phrase that correctly, my fault. I meant why are you suggesting the f1.7 20mm on the M43 system when theres a readily available and cheap f1.4 25mm Summilux for M43 ...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Instant scan shows the Sony RX1 is a one lens package with a f2 lens ?? I am unsure how that would outperform say my current DSLR with a cheap f1.4 50mm prime (say 300 USD outlay). I want to like the compacts.. I am ready to be sold.. But f1.4 50mm on an APS-C body is just a couple hundred...

    Compact Can any compact format fullfill this need really well ??

    Why would the f1.7 be better than say the f1.4 ?? Would in your opinion a GX1 with f1.7 20mm outperform a D450 with f1.8 50mm which I am not getting the sort of shots I want from ?? I will have a read on the sony RX1.. Thanks.

    Hi all, firstly please forgive the length of this 1st post but I figure more information is better than less and I am intending to cut and paste this to both M4/3rd fans and to some DSLR / EOS forums as I want to get all perspectives. The short version is I am trying to capture low light...
