Ryanide: Anyone know when this camera is scheduled to be released in stores? This will definitely be my travel camera along side my 5DMKII w/24L!
I hear by the end of the month to start of March. In the US that is.
A really decent piece of kit. Discrete and low profile for everyday shooting. Its well worth a look. Considering The whole system will const about the same as the 5D II B.O.hmm waiting for full review and images samples and by then may have some deals to be had.
David0X: Gosh - sometimes there is useful stuff posted in these comments, so I keep reading them. Then every now and then something like this happens. I continue to be surprised by the deluge of ill informed and lazy comments by fools.
Taking a little time to research will show:
1: the guys are both professionals. Their websites contain a lot of stuff that shows that if you care to look. They are both working pros who know what they're doing.
2: If you read Christian's blog you will see that these are just a couple of quick images posted from day 1 of a four day shoot. This is not a review, it's just some shared photos by a guy who got a camera early and is looking forward to sharing some images as he discovers a bit about the camera.
There are many sensible and useful comments along these lines posted below, but they become hard to find amongst the asinine bashing.
By the way, I have been many times to Quorn where the images were taken. The colours look pretty well captured to me.
Agree totally. It is a new system and to get the best out of these cameras will take a bit more time.Great pics btw. I think they wanted to get images out there asap.Im really tempted to go for it based on these samples.
lovely photo !
This was my idea ? not a great claim to so called fame.Give me a break ! Creativity please show your presence !!
Looks lovely. They are targeting Leica users / wannabe Leica users. Waiting for Full review
look lovely. could it be true !. If the price is right Im ready !
Happy Christmas all thee !
rocklobster: M4/3 comes of age. It's going to be hard for the Pentax and the Q system. Ironically, the Q system makes Olympus's system look non toy-like in comparison and the new (Oly) lenses add further weight that will make more serious photographers stand up and take notice.
Ironically, for Pentax, I have been looking at entry level DSLRs and the K-x is selling here in Oz for about $650 including a Sigma 18-200 zoom. So, its a toss-up between it and the new Olympus system with the Q system not figuring at all in the equation.
Exactly ! I was debating the 5D II due to its low light image capabilities. but it will stay at home most of the time. I wanna put this lens on the GX1 :P
inevitable crafts studio: anyone comparing the nex system to this, obviously never held a ricoh in his hands or used one.
not only are they built like tanks, the user interface is the best i used so far, also its fully customizable.
also i why should someone buy from sony, when real camera companies make products like the gxr?^^
it looks like a stunning piece of gear ! I think i found what im looking for. (current 350d user looking to 'upgrade') Im really getting lost in the m 4/3 area.
Psymon: Still no full review?
waiting for a full review of this and the gx1
Wonderfully captured portrait, very heartfelt.nice p.p.
