Thanks.  I am just not understanding why with a brand new state of the art camera with supposedly much improved ISO you would take a handheld long exposure with such a slow shutter and low ISO...

 

Because its his camera and he can do whatever he likes.

that's for sure 1000%.  But then he shared it with us in this forum setting as an illustration of I'm not sure what.  I am simply saying the photo to me doesn't showcase anything positive and suggesting what he might have done to show off his new camera that he can do whatever he wants with.

Maybe as an illustration that the OIS works and allows you to get good results up to speeds of 1/5th of a second? I got a sharp image with no trouble at the same speed.

No offense, but an iphone 6+ can get this result. For a $4000+ camera it doesn't really impress me. What would be very impressive is a shot that is crisply sharp in every respect with a vibrant natural-looking color pallate unsubdued by the extremely high ISO that was used. I thought this camera's ISO is insanely high? Am I wrong?

BTW, had i played with the highlight recapture, it would have......there really is no such thing as burning highlights as there was on the M9, not even close.

Thanks a lot, Steve.  I am impressed by the high ISO performance.  The colors seems to hold together quite well.  

I also have noticed a tinge of moire in many of the photos posted here.  But overall it seems like a wonderful camera.  Have fun, all!

Here's one with some colour. The colours and sharpness are superb, there is an issue with moire.

 

 

Awesome shot!!  Has a three dimensional feel to it for sure.
