topstuff: Nice glass.

Im hoping for future Oly cameras to have the improvements in AF needed to do it justice. They aren't really up to shooting fast moving stuff at the moment IMO. Im sure it will improve.

This is where I expect "Pro" micro four-thirds to evolve. I guess the sensor could increase to 20 MP, seeing as there are 20 MP 1" sensors, but the real development should likely in focusing-placement and ability of on-sensor focusing.

Is the micro four-thirds sensor expected to be upgraded or is 16b MP likely its limit?

zoranT: Please explain the reasoning behind wanting to buy this, provided that 'pocketability' is not the main criterium (which it isn't, as mentioned in the review). Why wouldn t you go for Fujis or Sony NEXes mirrorless etc. that also are not pocketable? Certainly bigger lenses etc., but remember, pocketability is not the criterium. Yet, much bigger sensors and thus better IQ. I simply fail to understand why someone wouldn t prefer bigger sensors including a comparable price range, when size is not the main sales point.

Besides the feature set and likely build quality, all-in-one solutions (fixed lens) have appeal. Glad to see the Leica name on the lens, also. Leica should applaud its partnership with Panasonic.

KameraFever: I also wish this had a mic input. Still, great camera.

Funny. Relatively low-end Olympus compact have a wonderful feature. Not just stop compensation on the flash but you can go 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64 power. Amazing feature-just 1/64th power on an outdoors shot can do a wonderful, subtle boost for an image.

Compelling offering. I hope image quality is there.

EthanP99: $2799 for a kit...

You can buy the Sony A77 II kit for $1000 less

Nice pricing, Samsung

Good points. I think the Sony aficionados are using Zeiss glass.

Good. Anyone who says Samsung and Pentax are not designed for photographers hasn't used one of the cameras.

Would like to see optional frame rates like the Canon EOS-M. And stick a hot shoe on there if there isn't one.

How can this lens do what others don't per graph-I guess lots of lens corrections in processing?

My challenge to the camera industry—issue a camera without "X" in the name!!!!!!!

WT21: I honestly don't think the ILC market is big enough for all the vendors who want to play here -- Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Ricoh/Pentax, Oly, Panny and now Samsung. (did I miss anyone??)

Out of those, my gut tells me it'd be Ricoh/Pentax and Oly and Panny that are the weakest, all of which would be a far bigger loss to the gear/hobby/profession than if Samsung bowed out. But Samsung has deep enough pockets to tilt at windmills and any market share they take from the others (except maybe Canon, lol) is, IMO, a shame.

Have you used the NX cameras? Download the NX100 manual and you will find a much more photography-oriented and progressive OEM than many another.

Memo to DPReview staff. Acquire a few NX cameras and use them for extended period of time.

stevens37y: There are some disappointing feaures:
- no tilt screen
- no 5 axis stabilisation for video (like FZ1000)
- no high speed HD video : 1080/100-120p

Nearly a $1K and OEMs always find a way to hamstring a product.

And Panasonic does touchscreens exceptionally well. At least, have a limited feature touchscreen like OLYMPUS XZ-10.

Please DPReview. Instead of rethinking the DSLR, CANON upgrades specifications.

On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (202 comments in total)

Huge rectangular, apparently inspired by movie palace candy boxes. Lack of EVF and this hood contraption could have been solved by a split design like the Coolpix 995, 4500 or even the Coolpix 2500/3500. Use the extra real estate. A camera that swivels is much better than those fragile moving LCDs we now have. I believe the OEMs are stuck with pre-designed subassemblies.

On Fast and full-frame: Nikon announces 24MP Nikon D750 article (406 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gesture: These are all very mice cameras and I would love to have full frame and if some legacy lenses can do well on the digital sensor, so much the better.

But I wish Nikon ( or someone else) could rethink the digital SLR. Make it more compact, simpler to operate, without giving up robustness. Time to get away from the space shuttle console.

That "retro" Df was almost a parody of a camera-way too many buttons, dials, etc. That wasn't a digital version of the Nikon FM or FE by any means.

I do think Nikon can carve out a great niche in semi-affordable full frame, but it's also clear that they don't have the resources and creativity of a Sony to come up with so many different camera modes.

In reply to:

Anastigmat: Grudgingly, Nikon is slowly bringing down the price of FF cameras. That is a good sign. What we really need is a FF that costs $1500 or less that is not built with an all plastic body like a Digital Rebel. DSLR sales are slumping, and the market needs help from one or more entry level FF models that are affordable without being filmsy. That is what the market needs to reignite the enthusiasm of those who still want to shoot with DSLR cameras.

Exactly.
