For it to be viable, it has to be put into a smartphone.

A good compact apsc mirrorless is not much bigger than this and offers better controls, more DR and lower noise.

Menneisyys: It certainly is noisy. Right the first ISO200 elephant shot shows tons of color noise in the shadows. A decent sensor + post processor (e.g., any X-Trans APS-C Fuji cameras) would show no color noise using exactly the same processing (NR) options. (As I've explained in the Fuji forum here, even a very slight (in LR, about 2-3%) CNR gets rid of all all color noise in the shadows at base ISO with these cameras. Given that the only current APS-C Fuji camera with a Bayer pattern, the X-A1, produces definitely noisier images than its X-Trans siblings, it's easy to predict the same 28 Mpixel sensor would produce significantly cleaner images with a non-Bayer filter.)

As Fuji engineers had mentioned. The X-Trans array makes it much easier to separate noise from details, thus making NR more efficient and effective, especially at high ISO.

Just checked the Sony A5100 at the showroom. With kit lens, corner softness is very noticeable. On the studio scene comparison, Fujifilm X-A1 has more details. Fujifilm X-T1 has less noise. A5100 applied more NR at high ISO. From viewing the LX100 images , I wouldn't go above ISO1600 if using this camera.

Something is seriously wrong with landscape photos from this camera.

This is a very disappointing image.

The grain on the ISO 6400 night scene is so natural and pleasing. Fujifilm knows what a photograph is all about.

No mention, it seems, about whether DR has improved. I used to shoot G1 with a graduated ND filter. I suppose it has improved slightly.

With four aspherical lenses and two ED glass lenses, this zoom has some serious stuff inside its barrel. Together with 5 stops OIS and weather resistant, Fujifilm is downright serious about this.

I think this is the first mirrorless camera that the professional photographers can use with confidence on the job, and don't want the heft and bulk of big cameras.

A handstrap for a small camera is much more useful than a built in grip.

Except for the sensor size, it has a great set of features, containing some of the innards of the X-E2.
