tkbslc: 45mm seems like an odd choice for APS-C. Did they just try and copy m4/3?
copy? are into some weird substance?
viking79: I see this comment a lot: 45mm focal length on APS-C is weird. It is not at all. It is a 70mm equivalent. A 24-70mm or 70-200mm are not weird focal lengths, 70mm is the stopping/starting point of each of those, and you spend a lot of time at either end on a zoom, so it should be fairly natural. Actually, take the 16mm f/2.4, 30mm f/2, and 45mm f/1.8 and you basically have your 24-70mm zoom in a fraction the size.
45mm on APS_C sensor? definitely not weird.
why would anyone post their bigger size photos just for FB to make money out of them and don't give you a share of what you really own.
Ariston: oh my. this is getting ridiculous. a lot of pointless brand bashing just because the camera got a gold star.you people should be more concerned shooting with your equipment rather than cry about a camera for getting an honor. are people here that pathetic?
@sgoldswo, I completely agree. not to mention pointlessly shallow.

Greg Gebhardt: The biggest advantage the X100S has is it is cheaper. As far as image quality and detail the RX1 will always win. Those who do not agree are in denial and likely are regretful Fuji owners. Lol.
this has to be the biggest BS post I have read.
the X100s shames the RX1 by a mile.
Kokeen4231: This is the closest competitor to leicas and the sony RX1. If the price is right, I would rather have this.
the sensor size is something to consider, but who would use that for such an occasion if you have the D800? not to mention the setup needed for those shots.
photobeans: This is such a beautiful camera. I want to hold it, admire it, and use it.
looks delicious compared to the RX1.
Jimmy jang Boo: Looks like a nice camera on the outside, but nowhere near enough inside to compete with Sony's juggernaut. Fuji will be lucky to move these things at $400.
Sony juggernaut? oh my, the fanboyism always brings out the stupidity in people. lol
Kokeen4231: I wonder how this sensor can compete with 1" sensor found in the rx100.
I wonder how the NEX-7 couldn't compete against the XP1.
veato: I'm loving the hilarious "it will fail because it doesn't have a 1" sensor" comments. So any compact that doesn't feature a larger sensor is now destined to fail (regardless of other features), right?
Presumably all photos taken on the X20 will be crap because, you know, sensor.
the 1" sensor will fail because of m4/3.
Chris Tofalos: No EVF - again! Amazing and very disappointing omission...
buy an NX20. problem solved.
zoranT: Samsung copy everything, first Sony's NEX series, and now they go a bit towards the retro concept of Fuji. And IQ-wise they have been always a bit behind, no surprise. They could bring it on however, if they wanted to be more serious about leading the market.
what a stupid comment. the NX system came out first than the NEX. get your facts straight before commenting something like this.
KeeChiuPeng: How can a cheaper D600 body trounce a premium D800 by that much? The iso noise performance is significantly better than D800 in all ranges.
the High ISO noise performance is basically the same with the D800 when downsized to D600 pixel level.
KonstantinosK: For the existing K5 users, the new duo doesn't look much of a temptation for an upgrade, unless of course money is no object. For those that are new to the DSLR and want the best in the APS-C class, they are serious candidates among its peers. The 7D after all these years received only a good firmware upgrade recently and the D7000 until now remains practically the same as ever.
the improved autofocus would be a big consideration.
jsis: meh.... Nikon's offering is better.
if it's a dlsr, I agree. if it's their V1, I'll laugh at you.
audijam: only fools buy samsung...
by that statement, you don't know photography.
qwertyasdf: On a previous lens roadmap, Samsung indicated a 55/1.8 pancake.It turned out to be a cupcake.
The following lens are on the roadmap for the 2nd half of 2012 lol...80-400mm f/4-5.6 OIS SSA iFn135mm f/2 OIS SSA iFn24mm f/1.8 ED SSA iFn
Personally I would hope they ditch the 135/2, which translates to 202.5mm
I have use for 135-200mm lenses.
plasnu: Canon and Samsung are a lot behind their competitors.
which competitors? the only competitor that has more lenses than the NX is the m4/3.
