Thanks for explaining about the new switch on the top rh corner. The first thing I did was switch it back to the normal black version.

Siobhan A: So the A6300 falls short of the 2 year old NX1 without all its incredible FW updates that added cool features like IBIS for video and superior C-AF.

It is sad Samsung gave up because they are still far ahead of Sony. They even have REAL APS-C F/2.8 zooms and a great 85mm F/1.4 prime for over $1000 less than what Sony tries to charge! :D
Oh well. Maybe in another two years Sony will finally make a better camera and good APS-C lenses.

Good observation, woodyggg.
The NX1 was very fine indeed, but too large for the mirrorless market. The similar but much smaller NX500 was nearly perfect, except for one big mistake. Having no EVF, it was designed for the Korean market. But most of the world wants an EVF in that class of camera. Failure was the end result, due to this shortsightedness.

Tonkotsu Ramen: Like Ethan said. There is only E mount. There is NO FE mount, and there is no reason that you guys should keep attempting to mislead readers by promoting it as such. This also goes for the forum description.

Look at the actual mount of the A7R II, What does it say? Take a look and get back to us.

Sometimes, an e mount lens which is intended for APSC works just fine on the full frame cameras Such as the 10-18.

Sometimes it's the uncorrected mistakes which become a bother.

photosen: If you're reading this to get into photography remember you can also buy an older model, new or used, even from a higher tier, for the same money; however strong the lure of tech is, you will always make a much bigger difference than the camera. While I have a recent 70D I have no problem still using the 30D I got in 2008, knowing its limitations. In other words you can make a small investment, still get superb gear and get great shots.

I can relate to that. Sometimes I use a Rebel T1i.

Jonathan F/2: Lack of an EVF is a major con against the A5100. Any camera with no EVF/OVF should be bumped from contention.

@brendon1000,
" I have never seen anyone in my country using NEX with MF lenses. "
Then just imagine what they are missing. The Sony NEX/APS-C line may be the most suitable of all for adapting older quality lenses.

Especially because the predecessors to the A5100,; the NEX-5N, NEX-5R and NEX-5T, had an optional and excellent hi-res. removable EVF.

muljao: Personally I think they all look good. I'd be least impressed with the nikon j5 because the others should give a good bit better image quality all thing being equal. Everyone here is very entitled to opinions, but the list of limitations that some people have has to be taken in context, they are sub 500 dollar cameras, thats approx 450 euro or 400 sterling.

Compare this to say a few years ago and they are all just fantastic

The J5, with it's new 20.2 mp sensor, should provide every bit as good image quality as the Sony RX100 series.

Jorginho: It is a mystery to me how dpreview seriously says that the Sony A5100 is an incredibly compact cam etc in their final sentences. We are talking interchangeble lenses and we really know that many lenses of the Sony are far from being compact let alone being good. You'd expect more from any reviewer than just make the mistakes firsttime buyers make buy going for the body and forget about the importance of lenses.....

And some of the Sony lenses are smallish and very good.

CaPi: I would have given the same recommendations.. Personally I don't like the out of camera jpegs of the Sony.. D3300 could really use an upgrade of the autofocus system.

The A5300 was going to be announced but is now delayed because of the Japan earthquake.

Marty4650: Lets see if I understand this..... in a field of 12 cameras, only 1 has weather sealing, the Pentax KS2. And the only camera to be cited for "lacks weather sealing" as a con is the Panasonic GX85.

The other 10 cameras without weather sealing get a pass on this.

Was there any particular reason you expected weather sealing from the GX85, but not for any of the other 10 cameras that lacked it?

Or they could have edited it to add the statement to the other 10 cameras.

proxy, I suspect that you are right. On the other hand they make some reiable cameras. I never had one break.

Mister Joseph: Really wish Sony just evolved the NEX-5n/r/t series instead. Better sensor/AF, capacitive touch screen, improved software, same form factor. That'd be a great camera.

proxy, the A6000 and A6300 are much-liked by a lot of people. Huge sales success.

aftab: Few months ago a Canon executive stated that by the end of 2016 they want to be #2 in mirrorless market and #1 in 2017. As per some estimates they are currently #3. Their strategy seem to be making small, optically good and cheap/affordable lenses to lure and hook people in M system. Once they have done so, they can make more expensive lenses (and cameras) later. 35mm/1.8 is rumored for later this year.
If nothing else, this lens indicates that Canon is serious about their plan to make M system a success.
Like many, this lens has made me interested in M system for the first time. I will probably wait for M4 and another smallish prime (around 85mm equivalent). 22/2 pancake, 28/3.5 and a longer prime would be excellent to carry for travelling and for many other situations.

Competing Fuji and Sony APSC MILC;s have been successful by making superior products. Same thing for M43. Canon 'M' lenses are excellent. But how competitive are the 'M' bodies?

But some owners prefer the NEX-style 'rangefinder' bodies.

And a bias for Sony.

Not a capacitive touchscreen...requires some pressure. These screens also suffer from de-lamination. So, not the best.
The A5100 is de-contented and can no longer fit the removable EVF, which was a great thing.

Contrary to the report, the Olympus E-M10-II (and the E-M5-II) have a modified sensor which is therefore an improvement over the sensor in the E-M10.

Petar Veliki: They still dont have some good zoom lens. Using other formats on lens test ?

If Sony are taking a change of direction as witnessed by the A6300, resuming new development of the APS-C line, then new lenses are to be expected. And the first might be a 16-50 constant f2.8 PRO lens, I figure.

Michael Jardine: OM-D E-M10 for < $500 with kit zoom, includes EVF. Great camera.

http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/digitalcameras/omd/e-m10.html

Yes, and as you said, it comes with an EVF. Also built-in flash and most importantly, IBIS too. I'm getting a used GF7, keeping the 12-32 kit lens for my E-M10, and selling the GF7 body.
