HenriAntoine: This will be excellent for those who made the most of the legendary Mamiya 7 and 7ii, which is a 6x7 rangefinder camera, highly portable with the very best image quality in film MF. This will indeed be a game changer. It looks ideal for unobtrusive handheld documentary photography that aims for the highest image quality. That was - and still is - what the Mamiya 7 does best.

For that kind of photography, you need an olympus omd em1 or that kind of stuff . The H lenses are too slow, and are not stabilized.

This format makes sense only if you print wall size. Otherwise, FF is thé best ratio quality/ investment

kingslayer: $9000? lol. If this thing was priced around $3500, it would sell very well.

If à leica would cost the same price as a Sony , they would not sell anymore, I tell you !

Swordman: I think it's great, but I feel 50MP isn't enough. The next generation of 35mm sensors are rumoured to have around 80MP, and with a decent lens, the depth of field is shallow enough.

What this has over its current competitors is resolution and dynamic range. In a years time, that advantage will be gone, and you'll be down 9000 dollars.

Perfectly right. See the canon 5ds which gives less detail than some competitors with far less pixels......
Who ever needs - as non professional photographer - so many pixels ? unless you are printing huge posters, it is useless. Even 20 millions is well enough for 99 % !

villagranvicent: Excellent review, down-to-earth without the recent over the top claims and headlines, seems like a solid performer but at a hefty price. I would love to see a real life comparison vs the FZ1000 or even vs m43 systems considering the cost is in the same ball park to see if paying twice the money is worthy.

To my opinion, the fz1000 is a better option : it is much cheaper, AF is faster and Colors are better. See on the studio test on the color chart how yellows from both rx10 and rx10 III are dull. ThE panasonic yellow is à bit too yellowish, thé canon has the better rendering. But with the sonys, every color seems "washed" , I had a sony rx10 and even with enhanced Colors settings I could not get right colors that looked like Fuji colors when the sun dos not shine. i sold it to buy the fz1000

Advent1sam: Fuji x, 16mm f1.4, outstanding lens, f2 equiv and weighs the same!

And of course, you CAN use the Fuji 16 mm on your panasonic body ? no, ok, then why speak about Fuji , what does this havé to do here ?
If I need a 12 F1.4 I will buy it because it here is no alternative. That's all.

Thé studio scenes show much better results with the olympus em10 : pictures are sharper. Do you use thé same lens for both bodies, if not, thé results are not reliable, how could they ?

"specially developped for,people who like photography", well I guess people who do not like photography will not even buy a camera.... Pure marketing !

The point is : is F1.2 usable ? I wonder.

dansclic: Who cares about this ? People paying more than 6000 dollars are not buying sigma lenses I guess ? I wouldn't anyway. Professional photographers do not want to create problems for themselves, So better stick to genuine lenses that will never cause any problem.

You have missed the point . Happy to know many people are using third party lenses . The point is : like Edward tells here, there will be more and more problems of compatibility . Il there is à problem with a canon body equipped with a sigma lens, who are you going to send your stuff to ? Canon ? Sigma ?
Do you think reasonable people do.have Time to waste dealing with such problems ? No. they don't. I don't take that risk. i,CAN understand people havé another opinion which apparently is not your case.

Gesture: Not easy being Sigma. But they are communicating and responding. +

That is simply marketing. If they do not, they lose customers.
Internet and customer complaints can ruin a reputation quickly.

Compared to the panasonic fz1000 , the rx10 has dull colors.... You might say more accurate Colors, but certainly not pleasing colors....

goactive: Seems like people are not taking into fact that the sample images here are not edited to taste like you would do with something you shot.

If you add sharpening and contrast and all around edit them fully i do not think they would look any better or worse then any other 85mm out their.
Now i have to get this one or the Nikon or a Sigma.
I would like to get more info on the VC to see how well it works i can see that as a big plus.

Better, maybe, but thE price ???? I can get almost 3 nikon which are known to be very very good, So ......
