Richard Wong (Click here) published the full Leica 100-400mm lens review:
The Panasonic 100-400 really highlights one of the strength of the micro four thirds system. A lens with insanely long effective focal length but with reasonably compact size. The build quality and image quality of the lens are decent and I really like the dual lens hood and lockable focal length design. Not to mention that the really fast autofocus speed and good O.I.S. /dual I.S. performance. I do wish the integrated lens hood is a little bit longer so I don’t need to touch the detachable lens hood most of the time. But the only thing I don’t really like is the tripod collar can only be rotated by 90 degree so you do have to remove it when shooting handheld. The smallish f/4-6.3 aperture size also limits the low light performance (both autofocus speed and image quality).
The Megapixel race will never be over. And to be able to work those huge RAW files we need faster formats. And that’s exactly what the new ON1 RAW processor is all about:
The current class of RAW-based photo editors require photographers to catalog their photos, bounce between apps for editing, and forces them to work within the confines of their ecosystem. They haven’t adapted their apps to work efficiently with today’s popular 42- and 50-megapixel cameras. For years photographers have been asking us for a super fast RAW processor and non-destructive photo editor without the painful import process. This is ON1 Photo RAW. In development for years, ON1 Photo RAW will be the first RAW processor released in more than a decade and feature a new modern RAW processing engine, tuned for today’s sensors and graphics chips. Combined with our current set of tools, ON1 Photo RAW will bring photographers the world’s fastest, most flexible, and easiest to use RAW processor and photo editor available. ON1 Photo RAW, the next generation of ON1 Photo 10, will continue to work where you want, as a standalone, a plug-in, or host app for other editing apps.
You can read all details and see videos at on1.com. The new RAW format will be available this fall for a yearly $150 subscription. UPDATE: You can also buy it without a yearly membership.
It will be curious to see how fast the new format handles High Resolution image from Olympus and Panasonic.
