    I know it's in Korea, but there are lots of photos + the lens attached to the GX7 & GM1. :smile:

    Yup, even without the knowledge of Korean, it's pretty easy to navigate!

    I love Popco, they make DPReview's sample images look like a joke!

    Popco does it right. They give a healthy dose of camera/lens porn on different bodies and detailed close ups. They then do critical "eyelash" sharpness, and bokeh samples galore. For some damn reason, western photography sites get so wordy in their reviews. If I wanted to read, I would of bought a book instead! Just shut up and give us pictures that show what the equipment is capable of! :eek::biggrin:

    also why I like reviews from ming or huff for the point of view ? read enough stuff I kinda know what they like so gives me a better does of what I think
    I can get charts from a couple sites that do it well and go here for tons of subjects !!!

    On the subject of foreign reviews, I can't read Spanish, but a comparison including measurements between the Nocticron and the new Fuji f/1.2 gave the crown to the Nocticron, with a clear edge in sharpness, contrast, and bokeh. :hail:

    $600 worth of difference? Who cares!

    Interesting that the Nocticron is about the same size as the 2007 Four Thirds 25/1.4!
