That lens seems really soft. Did DPR try a second X70 to see if better results can be had?
rallyfan: What nonsense. WHO is "everyman?" This thing is expensive and is NOT made in the USA. Why are we discussing this? Aren't there bags made domestically that one can use instead? (Hint: yes... Even this site's owners sell some domestically-made bags that are decent options. I don't recommend anyone shop there, but if you must, you can in fact buy a US-made bag even there).
You better change profeesions/hobbies since no digital cameras are made in the USA.
The specs say a fully articulated LCD. It should be tilting...
Mateus1: No, it's not GX-7 successor which was the best Panasonic mirrorless with a few isuues. GX-8 size and handling is dissapointing and GX-80 is poorer. After GX-7 Panasonic really dissaponts me with new releases :(
Amazing how you have handled a GX-80 before it's available. You must be the source of all these leaks about the GX-80.
justmeMN: $1,699 for body-only. Mirrorless enthusiasts say that mirrorless cameras cost less to manufacture than DSLRs, but that doesn't seem to be reflected in their prices.
Yes...because Fujifilm only sells one camera body...<rolleyes>
So does the IBIS only work in live view mode? I can't see how it would work if the mirror is down.
At least they updated the body to metal instead of the cheap plastic body of the A6000.
justmeMN: With only body-only pricing, I guess they assume that only previous Olympus owners will buy this camera.
Well, Olympus or Panasonic MFT owners...
belcanto: Where this camera will shine like no other is in style . To me it is obvious that the leatherette can be changed, by olympus or third party dealers and this will make the camera really stand out from the crowd. Just wait and see.
Sounds like a camera a hipster would like to pose with. But then again, a hipster could pick up a Fujifilm X- series and be in style for a LOT less money. Sure the Fujifilm system doesn't focus as fast as Olympus, but since some people prefer style over function it doesn't really matter!
bakhtyar kurdi: I will buy one when the price drops to $280 Canadian after 8 months.I see no reason to replace my a6000 that I paid only $329 Canadian (open box) for this toy.
Why even replace your A6000?
rapurimanka: I honestly don't understand what's the point of such camera? Cost is almost the same as in good nikon/canon DLSR, but have weird viewfinder, small lens park, strange ergonomics.
I find it weird in Nikon/Canon DSLRs to not have a live histogram in the viewfinder.
Finally a possible replacement for my ZS3/TZ7!
Franck Bender: I'd hate to get accused of beating a dead horse, but crop factor should be applied to the f-number.Saying the X100T has a 35mm equivalent f/2 lens is correct. Saying is has a 35mm f/2 equivalent lens is misleading.
I demand that all 35mm cameras show the f-number with a crop/DoF of 1.27x since I use a Pentax 645D all the time!!!! I gots to be able to look down on those 35mm chumps!
If they want to succeed, they need to test these gloves in Winnipeg, Canada. If they can keep my hands warm at -40C, I'll buy them!
Still waiting patiently for a weather-sealed X100S/T...
Combatmedic870: That looks ridiculous. In a bad way. That lens is HUGE. I'm sure the lens is great. But it's ridiculous.
As opposed to looking ridiculous..in a good way?
Interesting concept, but it'll face the same problems as most other "normal" cameras. Competition from cellphone cameras. The "just good enough" attitude of most people means they'll just use their cellphones instead of shelling out +$1000 for a dedicated device for photos. For those times when they want to do "serious" photography, they'll dig out the budget $400 DSLR. It'll be a niche product for a very small audience.
There sure is a lot of denial going on. I'd rank this break through the same as when Olympus came out with the E-M5. Nikon and Canon better get serious with their mirrorless plans if they have any. The mirrorless camp has far more interesting releases that anything from DSLR camp in a while. The last time I was excited about a new DSLR product was when the 36MP D800 was announced. Since then it's been pretty incremental updates from Nikon and Canon. A month ago I pulled out my D800 from storage and, to me, it felt like a dinosaur. Sure it has great ergonomics, but having it around my neck I felt like a rap singer with a giant gold necklace. Now if Sony would only do something about the price of the A7R II....
I still have my Casio CFX-200 calculator watch from high school! It even works!
what_i_saw: So much for the mirror less cameras being small in size. At this rate soon the smallish to normal sized DSLR will be at par on size and feature front. And with their usual fast focusing abilities + comparatively cheaper lenses, soon we will have to take a re-look at them.
@what_i_sawWhat is it about m43 that brings out the cherrypickers. It's always the same. Compare a new m43 body to a basic DSLR and complain that the m43 is too expensive\big\small or whatever. Try comparing the D3300 to the GM5 or GF7. But hey, if a basic camera turns your crank...go for it. I'm curious why you'd even look at a flagship camera loaded to the gills with features if all you need is a basic no frills model...
