" What's more, it will also offer effectively the same light-gathering capability as an F2.8 lens on full frame. By this we mean that it will be able to project an image that's just over twice as bright onto a sensor that's slightly less than half the area, meaning the same total amount of light is used to capture the image."

If I understand Tony Northrup right it does not have the same light-gathering capability as FF 2.8 at the same Iso. There will be more noise, right?

Why oh why didn't JK make a "smart MFT lensmount" that plugs into the smartphones? They seem to have all the technology in house to do so. Then they would have something unique.

Woe, cool. Did you make it your selv or did you order the grip and skin someplace?

Disappointing ! No AEB bracketing that is good enough for HDR ...
My LX5 can do -+3 EV

If Fuji had continued with the Nikon mount they wouldn`t need a roadmap.

Raist3d: Nikon got the size right. And no AA? Sounds interesting. But 28mm is not my preferred focal length.

You mean 42mm FF

kelownadon: Hi. My first post. Hopefully I get it right. I just bought the Sony Nex- F3 and am wondering whether I should return it and wait to buy the 3N in a month or so. I have two questions. First is the new lens as good as the previous. It looks to me like the new lens will only be available on the 3 series and not the 5 series and above. Is this true? Secondly how much of an issue will the lower resoultion on the screen of the 3N be to me? Thanks for any input that I may get.

If you walk around with only the camera and one lens I would change to the 3N. If on the other hand you carry around a camera bag with further lenses (e.g. primes) I would keep the F3.

Raymoendo: This is the camera I was waiting for, for a long time!!

Aps-c sensor, built in flash, retractable lens and very veryyy SMALL :)

This is my new camera for sure! Bye bye Canon S100...

What was so bad with the Canon S100 (besides the video)?
At least it fits in any pocket, 24mm and it has CHDK.
If a Camera won`t fit in my pocket I can as well bring my big DLSR (which I don`t most of the time)

Do you want to sell your S100 ?

I converted 2010 from E420 to a Nikon D90. Although the Nikon is much better in IQ and DR, the e420 was more fun to operate and had better color rendering (blues and greens). If a E7 would be in cool retro design I might come back.

How good ist the D5200 for HDR? Does it take 3 pictures with one buttonpress like on my D90 (+-2)?

Looks promising to me. Maybe it can replace my aging D90.

I doubt that the KIT lens can deliver enough sharpness for 24MP.
Its a pity that the Wifi isn`t build in the housing.
I hope there will be Android in a Nikon DLSR soon.

mbot: No Bracketing, so Nikon is "DICTATING" that we are not allowed to do proper HDR...a__holes. They put us in a corner and demand we pay "more" for the D5200, but they obviously are not thinking correctly, they don't seem to realize their competitors are offering bracketing in their entry level models. The Sony A57 is only $100 more and it blows this D3200 out of the water, it does not even have the now "essential" "standard" "ubiquitous" articulating screen, go shove it Nikon, the Sony A57 has all these essentials and more, plus FHD 60fps video at 28mbps, plus bracketing, plus super-quick full-time autofocus while shooting video with full manual control, and also a lower noise sensor with plenty of detail and better dynamic range; now tell me people, are you going to get a Sony a57 and do things properly for a good low price, or save $100 and get a kick up the ass from Nikon with a noisy sensor and lots of missing features. There you go, i've solved your problem for you, go buy the a57.

The Sony A57 offers only 2/3 stops AEB, which is a little for little for HDR ...

Red123: I'm a newbie but I do know a little about shooting. I've literally spent the last two days weighing up my camera options with the measly budget I have available and was going to get a D5100 next week. Could someone pls give me some unbiased advice on whether I should go for the D3200 with the 24mp or still go for a D5100. Will be using to take urban, street, graffiti photos, so manual settings are cool but I also need to be able to shoot quick, crisp photos many of which will be edited in Photoshop for final use. I do understand that my own ability with the camera is also important to end results. Thanks.

I would rather recommend Canon 600D as it has 1:1 aspect ratio and a better kit lens 18-135mm. Take a lokk also on the Sony A65 and its wonderful in-camera HDR.

The OM-D is the saving of Olympus!!!
This is what I always waited for in the m43 lineup: a compact retro styled camera. I am looking forward to how the OM-D will look like paired with the Lumix G X 14-42mm lens.

NoCoShutter: Anybody know if this will lock the user to lowest ISO for exposures longer than 1"? (like the Canon s100 currently does -- Grrrrrrr!).

I guess you can soon have longer exposures with CHDK

WOW, this is the future! So great to beeing able to upload photos to your iphone and social media sites. I hope this feature will come in more advanced cameras soon. The Z1000EXR doesn`t seem to be so much more better than the camera in iphone 4S.
