garyknrd: Wow, and with the best sensors in the camera's.... Cannot wait to see the results.
It's a fan boys dream!
pacnwhobbyist: Thom Hogan mentioned on his website that Nikon sent out a survey to existing registered Nikon users about what sort of DSLRs they would like to see in the future. He said that was usually an indicator that Nikon is about to have a major release. Maybe that in combination with this lens announcement in an indicator that the D400 is around the corner?
Wouldn't be much point to that if it was already designed. You'd think that would mean a new lease a year from then.
Terapixel: From the images you can clearly see the photographer loves shooting with the Fuji camera and lenses !!
So if he posted pictures of road kill and sad looking people, we'd assume he had a miserable experience?
riveredger: As flawed as all of the G-series cameras have been (every one of them has had some flaw - slow AF, no tilt screen, tunnel viewfinder, no viewfinder), I have bought several of them over the years and own the G7X now. No other compact feels as sturdy and well built as a Canon G, in my opinion, and every one of the G series I have owned has produced excellent photos. I wish this latest one had a built in EVF as well, but it doesn't.
Yes, like a Ricoh GR.
I thought the g7x felt like junk. The front lens ring feels terrible to turn, like it's grinding on something, and the exposure compensation dial nearly rips your skin off turning it because it's too stiff. I tried like 4 of them in stores and they all were the same. Nothing felt quality.
PrintLabGuy: I want a pocketable camera with full frame sensor, 35mm equivalent lens, EVF/OVF, and NO LCD or AA filter. No LCD would save on weight/size and increase battery time. Actually, the Sony RX1r fits this description, so if they could stuff that all into a GR body and keep the awesome menu system, I'd be happy.
I want to date twin supermodels, but that won't happen either.
I have an eyefi card for my current GR, so I don't have GAS.
Does it still feel like a plastic piece of junk compared to cameras from Pentax, Fuji, Olympus and Sony?
Did they improve the AF?
skysi: Nice, but the same old Sony color profile with the bluish cast to it. I'll pass.
They have this thing called raw, it let's you make it any cast you want. Cool, huh?
Harry James: If you are interested in recording high quality image and sound, this camera is another disappointment. The built in microphones on these things give lousy sound. Without a connection, wired or wireless, to a higher quality microphone this is a crippled video solution. So, if you are interested recording video with high quality synchronized sound, you are out of luck here. I say for $949, Sony can afford to provide for better sound.
It seems like an odd camera to choose if you are that hard core about your video. You buy this because it's small, really small. That's it's game changing go to ace in the hole and reason it exists. External sound isn't. Why marry the two? If you really need external sound, you can sacrifice size for a bigger camera. Would you buy a Porsche sports car to tow a boat, just because it has a powerful engine? No, you might buy their SUV, because that has a powerful engine, and fits the job.
Do you all just take outdoor pictures in good light? An f2.8 lens on a 1" sensor can't be good for much else? Taking the picture of a person not completely still indoors is probably near impossible without a flash at f2.8. It's hard even with a APS-C sensor.
Andreas Voigt: Brilliant marketing!
Keep the outdated RX100I-III models in the line-up and bump the price another $200
I would have done all the upgrade cycles if Sony would have kept the price tag of the original model
Maybe your salary can stay the same every year too?
DaveCS: Wow!! Another new Sony body!! They just keep getting better! Now... about those lenses. . . . . .
Now, how about those AF lenses?
Bill Bentley: I look to the skies for low light sensor evaluation. For me, it appears ISO1250 is the maximum without needing to employ noise reduction in PP. I can live with that. For me, I'm usually on a tripod and ISO100 in those conditions anyway.
Well that must be a nice luxury. Maybe drink some coffee between shutter clicks?
straylightrun: Shame they removed IBIS.
Doesn't the lx100 have it?
W5JCK: Kickstarter, the place to go to beg for money when you are too lazy or too stupid to write a business plan and secure proper financing. Most of that KS crap never even makes it to market. Some of the KS projects have been little more than a scam to raise money for people who were too lazy to work. Enough with the BS KS crap already.
Wow, aren't you a cheerful person. You must be a blast at parties. Now go yell at kids to get off your lawn.
daddyo: Well, it made my wife laugh -- and she thinks DSLR is the abbreviation for some Baltic state.As for the angst filled comments here, some folks need a vacation in the worst way.
She must be starved for humor at home.
TheEngineer: I love how all the m43 haters get all riled up because of this.
It seems Olympus is doing something right.
Go go Olympus....
Do you own stock in them, or did you just buy a consumer electronic made by them? If it's the later, you need to rethink what's exciting in life.
Wow, that was not very good. And it just keeps going and going.
