povetron: Hey, this is an pretty nice lens.
But I would like to see more pancake lenses to acomplish compact mirorless bodies. They could be slower, but should be optically and mechanically flawless and really compact. And then I will be in. M43 got too small sensor for me.

I ment that there could be an option of having really compact pancake lenses eg 24,35,40,50mm. Because main adevantage of mirrorless over dslrs should be in compact size. And zoom lenses and large aperture lenses doesnt accomplish that. Just to have combo of large sensor camera with lenses which fit into the pocket.
But you right, I am too choosy, there are already some good solutions.

On Equinox modular and Leica X3 concept cameras news story (41 comments in total)

The Leica X3 concept looks very appealing, but can't imagine how to put all necessary things into that and make it functional. Especially if bigger sensor would be used.
Maybe I'm wrong, don't know.

In reply to:

_sem_: So, this PDAF will have issues on red and blue objects, hehe
Why are the PDAF pixels not white?

If it is white, than that's cause the pixel without color filter can perceive much more light. This could be helpful in low light.

I really like the way of Fuji X-Pro1 and Oly OM-D, so my ideal camera could be quite similar to this:

+ aps-c sensor with Foveon or X-Trans CMOS sensor with adequate resolution (max 16MP for aps-c), no AA filter
+ same controls like on X-Pro1, rather smaller body
+ in body stabilization
+ base ISO 50 (with best IQ)
+1/4000s shutter, quiet shutter
+ hybrid viewfinder, with focus peaking in OVF, accurate digitaly projected framelines for composition with paralax correction in OVF
+ external phase detection AF sensor - like in Ricoh GR Digital IV, good AF performance in lowlight
+ at least 400 pictures per battery
+ two sd card slots
+weather sealed
+ 24,35,50,80,135mm fast primes, 24-80 f/4 zoom,35mm pancake prime, FF EQ, distance and DOF scales for manual focus - like Olympus M.Zuiko 12mm f/2 ED, apperture ring with 1/2 stops clicks, displayed values + A position,
weather sealed
+small flash unit with ver bouncing, built-in bounce card, highspeed sync

Geo in Nv: Great to see the expansion to Books. Kertesz 's work is among the finest ever recorded. I realize that's my opinion, but his work just sings.

agree with you. Doesn't matter only what camera you use, but also how can you use it and what's your results. Sometimes I spent too much time reading about gear and forget about this. Hope there will be more articles about photography and not only about hw&sw.

Looks like a good compact camera. Bigger sensor than enthusiastic compacts, smaller lenses than on m43 and aps-c. 10 MP sensor is an enough for the sensor of this size. The built in viewfinder also a advantage. But little bit overpriced for the camera of this sensor size.
Hope there will be some equivalent of fast prime standard lens. Anyway, I m looking for the review.
