King Penguin: Ok it sure is a cute and attractive camera with great form and controls............but why would you purchase this when for the same(ish) money you can have a camera with a sensor FOUR, yes that's right, FOUR times the area, ie, a Nikon D600.
Yes, you are Wrong! The sensor of your D600 is TWICE as big as 4/3 not FOUR times. And you have a package with (e.g. With my 20mm Panasonic lens ) that slips in a coat pocket an can be carried every where without much. And it has excellence image quality and better color processing Nikon. There is no point in a good camera if you do not carry it around. For a pro it the size does not matter with all the other gear he carries. For a pro performance is all.
Lucas_: Looks really good! I just hope Fuji also comes up with an external EVF for it. Let's also see new lenses, including macro. It's interesting to see that the mirrorless APS-C trend set by Sony with the NEX is flourishing everywhere!
trend set by Sony? The first large Sensor mirrorless Camera was the Olympus PEN E-P1 releases in 2009. To my knowledge Sony released its mirrorless just one year later.
ChrisPee: Can somebody tell me where to find that (assumed) firmware update?
You need downlod the updater. Start the updater and teh you can select and follow the upgrade path 1.4 and 1.5.I
gfa5775: Maybe you should have specified a maximum F number. I wouldn't consider F8 or F10 as "wide", or are you leaving it up to the voters?
Actually the background-blur effect does much more depend on the (close) distant to the camera then on the aperture. And the proper term for what you want archive is SELECTIVE FOCUS. This way it turned out to be a junk photo contest where people load up there rubbish pictures that are totally out of focus. So you should have better thought about the description.
