Another ME-TOO camera. Does some things well, other things not so well, and gracefully blends in with the crowd.
"... the first camera to break the 100-point barrier isn't a full frame model from Nikon or Sony ..."
Subtle Canon diss, haha.
How do these attachments affect framing with the OVF?
historianx: Another Gameboy console posing as a camera. Pass.
A Gameboy among Ataris, Commodores and Amigas.
petemod: "Sir, is that a DP2 in your pocket or are you just..."
Are you happy to see me... or is that just a sigma in your pocket?
justmeMN: When the original G1 X was released, many people complained that it was not as compact as it should be, because of the OVF. Many people also complained that the OFV was so bad that it was worthless. Canon responded by removing the OVF, to make it more compact.
There is a way to make a camera compact and still give a proper eye level viewfinder. See Nex-6.
There are also ways to make good, proper OVFs that are small. See hundreds of film camera examples.
Canon is just unwilling.
If an external EVF is an option, I'm interested.
whtchocla7e: High-iso RAW's look mushy as heck. Even the Nkon D3200 beats this thing in detail retention..
This bad boy rivals the world greatest watercolor paintings... and still loses.

AV Janus: Not as cool as APSC version since it starts at boring 28mm.
The APS-C version starts at a boring 24mm fov equivalent. Not exactly a world of difference.
Suave: I have a single question - can a camera, equipped with this lens, track?
It should be able to track static objects without a problem.
This camera is large compared to the new Fuji X-T1 and the Sony A7. That's a shame.
I like this camera and I will likely buy it to keep my tradition of replacing gears every six months. Anyone want a used A7R in mint condition?
My brick wall shots are better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
tommy leong: can we have that in SILVER please ?
You can. I'll even chip in for a can of paint for you.
This is truly groundbreaking.
mrdancer: I see a great use for this camera. On a tripod, on my back deck, overlooking the lake in the valley (no, I would never "show it off" to friends, that would be somewhat embarrassing). But it would capture lots of great wildlife/bird shots, sailboat shots, etc. Will they be award-winning 18"+ prints? Absolutely not!!! But they will be great for the standard 4"x6" prints and websharing, etc. Don't need a bigger sensor for that stuff.
I'm rather impressed by the F numbers on a zoom of this magnitude. Curious as to how quickly it falls off in the zoom range - i.e., how does it compare to the FZ200's 2.8 at 600mm? Also curious if Samsung has improved their image quality in their P&S cameras. If it is on par with the FZ200, this could be a contender.
Yes, this is a camera primarily for shooting distance in daylight. I use a GX7 for all of my 'normal' stuff and have gotten used to the NFC - bump it to my Nexus and do remote shooting, etc. - would like NFC on all of my cams.
You'd probably get better image quality cropping out of a NEX-3 image shot at 300mm.
Wouldn't it be easier to just make a square sensor?
Wow, it has physical controls. Samsung, what are you doing..!?!?
Yxa: Is this where Canon has put their engineering resources instead of in the sensor development?
They have two people in their camera R&D dept? That's a big relief. I thought it was only John the custodian holding down the fort.
