Thanks Sony and Fujifilm for making this LU(dicrous)MIX possible.
There's never been a better time for the competitors to get their act together. Good times ahead ... good bye Adobe.
I wish Fujifilm would produce the lenses for the NEX system ... ah well ...
What the NEX system needs IMO are fast, high-quality lenses, not more bodies.
One photographic climax. Kudos !
Would be nice to see a remake of their great 17-50mm/f2.8 for m43.
TimK5: How many gazillion lenses in the 14-42(5) mm range are they going to release?
What about a 9-18 mm update?
Until they get ONE right :)
With m43 cameras getting better and better and flagships like the OM-D rivaling APS-C output it's nice to see serious investments in systems and cameras centered around one-inch sensors. In no time those critters will be up on par with what we get from m43 now. Can't wait for a serious system camera with the size of a RX-100 or a RX-200 with EVF and hotshoe but so far those Nikons don't cut it for me.
What a picturesque shot. Congrats ! Can't wait to get back to West-Bengal. 100 times more life per square inch than over here. Keep it up !
Let's wait until December 31st and see how many folks actually answered that utterly silly question.
No vote for the 'best' camera from this shooter but my 'Flop of the year' goes to Sonys NEX system, specifically their lens lineup after more than two and a half years. Shame, shame Sony. I move on to M43 (OM-D) and from what I've heard I'm not alone.
rattymouse: "In return its rear screen is slightly downgraded in terms of both size and resolution, to a still-respectable 2.8" 460k dot LCD - according to Fujifilm this is necessary to keep the camera's size down."
Really? Then why is the NEX 7 smaller with a larger screen with MORE resolution? More idiotic marketing from FUJIFILM.
Fuji learned a great deal from Leica, including this one. You can put crap LCDs on 7000 dollar cameras, people buy them anyway.
javidog: X10 blows away any camera listed here. Please consider it if you are shopping for an incredible little camera with fantastic abilities.
I wonder if he's actually shot any of those two. I personally wouldn't want my X10 to be any smaller, it's just perfect as it is, at least for my big hands, we're talking cameras, not toys or phones. BTW, the AF on my X10 is the fastest I've seen on any compact camera so far, faster than any of my NEXes (5, 5n, 7) especially in low-light.
Nothing for people who don't do their own homework. See above. I certainly wouldn't part with my X10 for any of those listed cams.-no way.
Looks like a list for people who don't do their own homework - they might end up with something completely different.
massimogori: 7 - Use a real camera.
... not trendy enough; what will my friends say ???
Re: zone focusing; even while the X10 is in MF mode you can use the AFvia AFL/AEL button. No need to switch back and forth.
Sheesh, almost every single reply to your article is solely focused on technological aspects, maybe a handful relate to the artistic aspect of your pictures. If I had to rate your shots by their 'artistic value' -for lack of a better term- I'd put each one of them right up in the top 10% or even 5% of the stuff we usually get to see on dpreview, take that 100% subjective compliment from an ex-colleague. Most photogs will never make it up there and no pixel-peeping will take them any closer, ever.Thanks for sharing a piece of your vision Dean.
Just another home run for Sony's innovation mill. While I'm not of the list of potential buyers of an RX1 I can't wait to see the first FF MILC out there, there is just no way around it.Who'll come first ? Will Sony take the plunge ? However, Leitz would be well advised to focus on what they do best - lenses.This or that way, golden times ahead - techwise.
SimenO1: Nice camera line up - crap lens line up. Whats the point of having slim cameras and 24 Mp if the whole package delivers either crap sharpness? I hope the 2013 snap pancake can deliver the sharpness the other pancake can't. That would make one interessting lens for me. Though, whats the point of having a system camera if only one lens sits on there?
> Nice camera line up - crap lens line up.
Exactly. The first thing that came to my mind when I read 'end of 2013' was 'they must be sh...in'Ghee, as much as I like my NEX5 the 18-55 leaves a lot to be desired, not that it's any worse than its brethren, it outperformed my Nikon D300/18-55 combo by some margin and made me sell my Nikon gear but hey, they can't be serious on this one.Where are Tamron, Sigma & Co. when you NEED them once in a blue moon ?Many of has have seen what the NEX is capable of, my brother has a Tamron 17-50/2.8 (Nikon Adapter) on his NEX-5 and it makes the NEX sing but the adapter makes it pretty bulky and of course - no AF/VR.Wake up Sony / Tamron / Sigma / Cosina & Co. WAKE UP !
