nathondetroit: Beautiful. There's obviously some serious X series glass if you want to go that route, but this available X100S kit offers a lot of capability for the enthusiast.
Everyday, there are plenty of budding photographers tearing it up doing 55mm 5.6 portraits with their kit lens. This 50mm 3.5 will definitely be capable of amazing work as well.
My bad, I saw f3.5 in a few comments and then read the picture upside down:)

Good news, I just finished ripping apart my living room, and the anger has settled.
While swapping the G-series body for NEX simplicity is heartbreaking, I can find peace in a new fact: this lens and sensor will render any $800 in MFT gear useless. Okay Canon, I see where you’re going with this… ***golf clap***
nathondetroit: Dear Canon,
I’ve been buying your G-series cameras for several years because of the excellent external controls.
Unfortunately, I’m sick of them. Slap on a huge sensor and let me menu dive!
-SAYS NO ONE
Lens rings can't be used when the camera is off. ISO and Exp. Comp dials on past models allowed you to anticipate shots while the camera is still off.
My understanding is that these Sigma compacts are great for landscape photography. Stunning resolution, and the focus and shot-to-shot slowness doesn't matter.
In that case, this form factor still beats the size/weight of a DSLR equivalent.
Go Sigma, at least for pushing sensor technology forward (as is Fuji).

This is getting scary... I'm so glad that I bought my DSLR in 2011, because at that time mirrorless was a joke. If I was making that same decision today, I would be laughing at DSLRs. These companies are pushing forward and offering us so many different bodies and lenses, yet Canon and Nikon REFUSE to make competitive mirrorless products. Eventually I'll switch.
ozturert: Mirrorless bodies are progressively looking like DSLRs. Then, why do we have mirrorless cameras at all? Do 2 dials and sharper corners make the large mirrorless cameras very different from DSLRs?
Body 1: Pro weather-sealed EVF Body marginally smaller than DSLR equivalentBodies 2+: Fully compatible with all of your lens investments, but a fraction of the size:)
I hope the Xpro2 gets an ISO dial as well. Regardless, what a killer flagship model!
nathondetroit: If you build fast primes, they will come...
My comment was summarizing Fuji's philosophy:)
(And also a movie reference)
If you build fast primes, they will come...
nathondetroit: Where's the imagination? 1" Sensor and a prime lens please!
Haha yes for wide-angle and apsc... It would be exciting to have something in-between aspc and 1/1.7 at the $500 price point.
Where's the imagination? 1" Sensor and a prime lens please!

nathondetroit: The only thing that sucks about this generation of cameras is that we're paying more money for less features. There are benefits of usability, and some construction/durability benefits, but in general stripping cameras down to their basics should yield some cheaper bodies as well.
Why not replace a mode dial with a shutter speed dial on the D3200? Why not replace a high res screen with a low res one? (Think M9–If the screen isn't the primary finder, then its performance isn't a necessity). There could be a pretty "hip" plastic rendition of these cameras...
Once "simple" and "retro" break through the "premium" class of cameras, there will be a huge reaction; Throw some real dials on entry levels cameras and give purist consumers a chance to reap the benefits on technological advancement–not pay a premium to get a luxury replication of bricks of the past.
Nope, I'm sure this camera is completely full-featured. In fact, I don't even have issues with these premium products. This camera looks sweet (and capable).
But when looking at what manufacturers are doing across the board, my point is that simplification should eventually lead to cheaper products–not the other way around.

Hmm… perhaps some Canikon adapters to utilize our legacy glass too?
I'd love to see this concept applied to a prime lens. Think how compact the RX1 is with its 35mm/Full Frame combo, and just shrink that down to a 1" sensor with nice glass.
Regardless, Sony are once again experimenting and innovating while others continue to produce cycles of blah.
