Since M4/3 is an open system. Does that mean the AF will be just as good as the OEM's?

garyknrd: Art lens? Hummm wonder where they got that from.

Pretty much proves my case. You assumed "ART" meant Sigma. And the majority of folks do also. It also means superior in the Sigma brand.
Just saying good advertising for the masses IMO.

I am fairly new to photography ( since retirement ). I enjoy looking at the pics, but hard for me to justify the cost.
What is the difference in buying a Leica lens and putting it on your existing camera and snapping some pics?
Is there that much difference?

I tend to hold my cameras for years. I can afford it if I really wanted it. I just cannot seem to turn the corner.

I am beginning to think these are for long time pro's that gradually move into this type of shooting. Not sure.

You won't believe how many of these cameras I see in Thailand shooting birds. Along with the new 800mm F/5.6 lens.
Canon is still dominant, but with the release of the 800mm lens it has sprang up almost over night.
I talked with a new friend from China that was shooting one two days ago and he let me use it a bit. Extremely nice to say the least!
If I didn't travel so much I would get one in a heart beat and not look back.

Looks like a nice camera. Not enough improvement for me to buy one though. My K-3 is working great.

On article Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 (352 comments in total)

Canon, Nikon - Ford, Chevy. Same thing different product. If a hobby just buy and wear it completely out before buying a new one.
I enjoy seeing the internet replacing TV as an advertising medium. Amazing to see for an old timer like me.

Wow, those are some pricy bags. I kinda agree. It would scare me to death flying with one. Economy must be booming.

mahonj: It is about giving as many options at as many price points as possible for the minimum amount of extra engineering.
The innovation is the 24 Mpix sensor, which is available in 2 different bodies at prices $100 apart.
You don't have to get angry about it, just buy the one which best suits your budget.

Quit funny Donnie. LOL

Hard to imagine what is going on with Canon.
A very good article by the way. I enjoyed it, and agree.

He looks like a very unhappy camper in this interview. Cheer up Chuck.

I haven't bought a Canon product in almost 3 years. I would love to try one of these out. But, I ain't going to buy one.
I agree with others I would buy the 810 instead without a doubt. And I am a Canon shooter.

If much improved AF I am in. If not I'm out.

MXC: need to have good AF, high ISO capability, tons of native lens... and good price

Extremely poor selection of glass. Where is the 50mm 1.8, 35mm lens... I'll personally wait for the official review by DP... :)

Wow, they have addressed the main issues with out a doubt. Amazing.
These guys are the 800 lb. gorilla going after the market in a serious way.
