chillgreg: If your Android phone is pre 4.x (ICS/JB) then forget about it. My "old" Samsung Galaxy S2 is not compatible. Hence does not appear in the Play Store for me.

Pathetic.

This app is free so you cannot expect too much unless you are willing to pay $5.

AngryCorgi: The physical depth spec is clearly wrong.

Intriquing camera, but I don't care for Samsung's in-house sensors. They are pretty darn awful.

Furthermore, the size of the sensor is at the limit that most manufacturers claim no real benefit from the BSI arrangement. Odd on all accounts.

It's most probably a sony sensor

street price will perhaps be at around $1000 - i think it will be very attractive if it has performance of 17-50 non-VC or anywhere near it. i woudl buy one.

davidbindle: Is it just me... or is this really pushing the limits of a lot of glass out there? If I wanted to exploit the resolution of this camera, I would have to put nothing less than the absolute best glass in front. But well... I suppose everyone already realizes this. I'm probably just a wee bit jealous 'cause I won't be able to afford one. If pixel density continues to be a factor in the amount of noise when shooting in low light, I'm anxious to know how this one performs because cramming 36 mp into the full frame might be making things somewhat tight. Still a lot less crammed than high MP compacts but obviously more crammed than the earlier full frames that were noted for their low noise at high ISO's.
Yet... I still drool a bit...

same pixel density as d7000 so should be no prob at least in the apsc frame.

Optimal Prime: Great. Any chance of an actual camera or lense review? Remember them back in the days...?

Smith is an dpreview writer?

Actually I'm learning a lot from all these new posts, about different softwares, photogs, so on. I hope dpreview can continue on with this while satisfying needs of traditional dpreview visitors.

MonkeyHouse: I went to Henrys with the intention buying one of these, and opted for the Canon T3i instead. Within 10-15 minutes, I knew a few things would be a pain for m, all preference-based and subjective:

1. The grip didn't feel comfortable in my hand. Thumb got crampy from the "pinchy" way I had to hold it.

2. I tried adjusting EVH with the dial but no matter what the edges were distorted. Overall, I found looking through an EVF distracting. I'm not AT ALL a DSLR "optical view" snob... like I said, I had every intention of buying the G3 knowing it had EVF.

3. It's smaller to the naked eye, but when a big attraction is "take it places I wouldn't bother to take a DSLR" it's still not small enough.

The auto-fucus was crazy fast, though, and full-time autofocus seemed to work like a charm. It was a plenty good camera, but left me no reason to not get the T3i instead.

Easy... stop buying their cameras.
