    Hey guys, the Panasonic L10 has been reviewed by my beautiful assistant Duncan. Take a look at it here.

    Enjoy. Smile

    I see employee relationships are moving on at EPZ towers Smile

    I have to say that I keep wondering if it is not possible to combine the best features of the 4/3 system, and the high quality rangefinder/compact of film cameras to come up with a good quality and easily portable camera at a reasonable price. Say a 24 to 105 fixed lens with rangefinder and live view plus built in IS?

    It sounds like the technology is there Could pany/olympus deliver it?

    I just have a serious problem with delusions of grandeur. Smile

    Improbable, I would say. they are not exactly known for their rangefinder prowess. But, you never know.

    I had to chuckle at this great description of the Live View Smile:


    Quote: To then take a picture, press the fire button. The mirror gets out of the way again with a clunk, the shutter opens with a clunk and closes at the end of the exposure with another clunk and then... yes, the mirror clunks out of the way so that Live view can commence again. That's no fewer than six clunks for every focus and capture. Talk about noisy and plodding. Needless to say, you can't take pictures of anything moving faster than a slow crawl with this system. That's why I say, don't use it for every day shooting because frankly, it's far too slow and noisy for that.

    Not imposible John, but quite a job. The E300/330 or pany L1 is the closest in styling to a rangefinder as there`s no prism. The lens would pose the problem and making one small enough.

    If anybody can leica/pany could

    looking forward to playing with the 12-60 it covers a lovely range.

    Yes Paul, I was thinking a camera with a 35mm equivalent lens of 24 to 120 and IS is interesting. And I thought if you made it a rangefinder you could dump the mirror etc to make it more portable, but I guess that is too much of a design challenge.

    A richo or panasonic compact is the closest I have seen. Price @ 300?

    Well the 300/330 uses mirrors so its not all that far removed from a range finder anyway. They could reduce the body size little and fit it with a fixed lens zoom lens, the newest crop kit lenses are very small.

    Lol I was looking at digital compacts just the other day, where have all the viewfinders gone Smile
