xMichaelx: It's interesting that photographers here will fight tooth and nail against fair use for images, and then demand the ability to photograph the creative works of others as they please.

Maybe your definition of "fair use" isn't the accepted one, because I haven't seen people arguing against fair use of images except for maybe some really fringe folks.

And are you really advocating the prohibition of photographs of buildings? Truly, common sense is an increasingly rare commodity, as your position proves.

France limits photography rights? Good. Once less reason to visit France.

In reply to:

ripleysbaby: Just how many lenses out there can cope with all those Sony megapixels anyway.
I could possibly raise the cash to buy the camera, but nothing would be left for quality glass. that means for the first time for me the Leica looks worth the money

@Rishi: He said "quality glass".

Pat Cullinan Jr: Nice, nice, nice, but too dear by a factor of 7.

You said the camera was too dear by a factor of 7. Where's the camera with the same specs that is 1/7 the cost then?

Yohan Pamudji: The best part of the RX100 IV is it will drive down the price of the RX100 III.

Maybe initially, but eventually the IV will come down and will exert downward price pressure on the III. The feature sets aren't that different and the price difference is only $150.

photo perzon: I do not like 28mm, most pictures are deformed.

Good to see you're still around to enlighten us with your deep knowledge of photography.

Peiasdf: At $4250, not nearly as expensive as I've expect it to be. True SONY is the 1st one to market by a wide margin so Leica cannot ask for "unique" premium but still, it is a Leica. Would have expect $5000 for the lens + $2000 for the body for $7,000 total.

At its current price + EVF it almost match the original RX1 price.

Agreed. Not a cheap camera but not at all the typical Leica overpricing. This is actually a reasonable price for once, even if Sony will probably undercut it by $1000 or more.

Please point me to the FF camera with 28mm f/1.7 you refer to that costs $600.

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

nananananana: I think canon can compete with mirrorless. Mirrorless biggest trump card is size and weight. Canon has the SL1, they have the pancake lenses, they have 300 gram tele.

But unless Pentax and Nikon start caring about size and weight, they're going the way of the dodo.

People want travel cammeras they can throw in their backpack, they can take on a trip, they can put in their purse, they can carry all day. Make size and weight a priority or get relegated to the studio like Medium format.

(an no, the IQ of AF of DSLR are not advantages of DSLR anymore, mirrorless have catched up, in some cases surpassed, my sis has a Sony A6000, image quality is just as good as DSLR)

DSLR companies switching to mirrorless is not going to work well either, Fuji, panasonic and Sony are names that are now intrinsically linked to mirrorless, people who want a mirrorless aren't looking at Canon or Nikon.

Pentax's Limited primes were small before any other DSLR manufacturer even thought about making small lenses.

Nikon on the other hand... woof! Their lenses seem to keep getting bigger.

Ergo607: Well, it had already become clear to me that olympus doesn't do customer's binding so I did not have to expect any firmware update for the E-M5, which is why I changed to Fuji X. Still there should have been an update for E-M5 (and other OM-D's and PEN's) with some of the features introduced for the firmware for the E-M1 (the tethered shooting, improved EVF lag.)

However what is loooooooong due is an adaptable super control panel and more streamlined menu's. Guess Olympus thinks that it's fine as it is. Good for them. Glad I got rid of the inexplicable menu's and fiddly buttons. The X-Pro has it quirks too, mind you, but they are minor (and at least Fujifilm listens to its customer base.) Good for me...

Yeah, no way to change that it seems. Sorry.

Olymore, my night vision is already down the drain. Presyopia can't be far behind!

JBurnett,
Thanks for the info. I had no idea a small EVF could actually work better than a rear LCD for the reasons you mentioned. I knew about trying to see a screen in direct sunlight, but didn't know that vision problems could be better accommodated with an EVF.

In reply to:

tbcass: $1800 for APS? Way overpriced.

People are so hung up on sensor size it's ridiculous. If I need fast AF and frame rate I'm grabbing this camera before any FF at this price or less.

A camera isn't a sensor in a box. Features matter, and no FF delivers similar features at the same price or lower.

It's off on my camera, so yes I'm sure :) It's here:

Custom menu (gears icon) -> D. Disp/PC -> Mode Guide.

Dr_Jon: Looks very interesting - pity about the battery life (and battery price) though. Be interesting to see how bad it looks with a f2.8 zoom attached... Tempting...

Meh, less than 10% difference compared to GM1 battery life--not a huge deal. And 3rd party batteries are cheap.

Is a squinty little EVF like this actually better than a large rear LCD?

Aperture ring on a variable aperture lens? Weird.

peevee1: 14/2.5 II... 55g, just like the original.
" version of an existing lens but with revised graphics" - what does that mean?

Same lens, different colors and markings.

PRohmer,
You can and should turn that off. It's a setting in the menu.
