tom1234567: I wish Fuji would by there sensor it would be good to have an X-T2 with This great sensor
Fuji won't use Korean sensor, or they will be shamed by all other Japanese companies.
So yes wish all you like, it won't happen.
zavart: Oh , and one more thing . Samsung should have joined the MFT group, especially since they didn't have a large selection of lenses to begin with . This would have been a smart move because people right now more than ever are looking for lighter cameras and lenses and it would give them opportunity to be part of the successful group rather than lone loser with the dead end system ! At least people could have risked buying their cameras knowing that in the worst case scenario they could have always buy lenses and accessories from other MTF makers !
You do realize that MFT lenses aren't going to fit/cover the sensor in the Samsung right?
sdgreen: No matter what its merits, I thought the NX1 was overpriced, not widely available & didn't have enough lenses (not the ones I wanted anyway)
16/23/35 f1.4 to begin with.
Hugo808: I think they've quit too soon. Sure, most of us are wedded to Canikon but new people take up the hobby all the time and there aint nothing wrong with Samsung stuff. They've just got to invest a bit more and hope for the best.
"hope for the best" isn't what the exec and shareholders @ Samsung would like to hear.
fzrTom: One of the best camera slowly disapear : sad news.If the NX1 had been done by Canon, Nikon or Sony, this camera would have been a succes. I really hope that the Sony A7000 would be a clone of the NX1.
Don't worry, the a7000 will surpass it.
Bjrn SWE: Intresting that a camera rated 82% is considered better than a cam at 87.
Because they are not the same scale.NX1 is an 87% against other aps-c offerings, whilst the A7II is a 82% in FF bracket.
CheersUK: OK, usually there is no smoke without a fire. The fact that Samsung haven't directly addressed all these rumors, after all this time...well the silence is deafening. The fact that their customers already invested heavily in their system are probably wondering what the future holds for them...like an expensive camera bag full of equipment that will no longer be supported??
I'm sure that when Samsung does release some information, it will be in their usual style, of actually creating more questions than answers...although I'm sure they'll wait till most of the inventory is sold, before they do.
You'd have nobody to blame but yourself if you heavily invested in Samsung....
That's like throwing money into the sea.
kewlguy: I just read another hands on review on the rumor site, it says Leica put everything people like about mirrorless into the SL. Really?? I love my mirrorless small and easy to carry!
Nikon D610/Canon 6D is smaller than it :)
infiniti029: Hasn't Olympus (and some others?) already been doing eye detect AF for a while now?
but are they FF, 42mp and shoots 4k?
newworld666: Not really new and not a real big deal !Why do they limit this only on eyes only .. and not any part of the frame the photographer would like to be tracked !!! Canon offers this for many years now .. and it's more versatile then just limiting it to eye tracking..look at page 34http://cpn.canon-europe.com/files/education/technical/eos_1d_x_explained/AF_guide_EOS-1DX_eng.pdf
1Dx, 7DII, 5DIII, 5Dsr have functionality with more option to keep tracking and various more or less difficult situations.
You do know that single point, zone etc are available right?
No more MA, perfect continuous tracking with much larger coverage across the frame.
This camera is so much win that it's scary...
Dirk Nuary: Always pricey, why?
Well the Batis is Zeiss-Zeiss, it can't be bad yea?
Even if it isn't Otus level it will be well above Canikon equivalent.
So yes you get what you pay for.
EcoR1: Excellent. It seems that E-mount is becoming very fast the de facto mount for professionals and enthusiasts who wants to have best possible image quality in smallest possible form and with all modern camera- and lens-desing benefits.
Personally I think I'll go for a 25mm lens, it has a very short minimum focusing distance and I can finally give up my 24mm A-mount lens. Also weight is not bad.
@ whyamihere The Nikon 85 1.8 is mediocre at best. It's not even at Sigma 85 level.
And please don't compare Zeiss to Nikon lol
straylightrun: Great. Now the FF emount system just needs a budget line of lenses to appeal to the other 97.5% of users.
If you are budget conscious you shouldn't be shooting FF and Zeiss in general and go back to your Canikon....
...or Pentax lol
It's a Zeiss, what do you expect?
You get what you pay for.
photogeek: Only twice as much as their Nikon counterparts. That's progress, I guess.
lol you seriosuly comparing Nikon lens to Zeiss?
What's next? Comparing FE 55mm to Nikon 50 1.8?
abortabort: So we might see this lens in A-Mount in another 6 months or so and then DPR can finally review the A77 II?
Chaitanya S: Its nice to see that Olympus slowed down the upgrade cycle, also they didnt drop the value of older em-5 over its life cycle. Eagre to see the reviews of new camera soon.
who would buy the em5 for $500 used?
No one is buying a used em5 for more than $200 AUD here in Australia.
Good luck to Oly selling this at $1099 with minimal upgrade. This camera will be $599 within 6 months and it still won't sell.
Sdaniella: resorting to combining multiple exposures, albeit with a half-pixel shift in both X-Y axis ... compensating for shortcomings of its tiny m43 milc 16-mp sensor pixels ...
and restricting it severely to relatively good light ... and restriction to only medium ISOs (1600) ...
who cares? Sony and Canon will soon be able to do 50MP in one single shot.
FocusBogus: OM-D E-M5 II? How creative again... Why not simply OM-D6?
OK, it is a nice camera with high res mode.
Oly won't be around in 2020, you can mark my word.
