Nokia seems to be going backwards with the cameras in their phones. You had the best with the 808, then the 1020 with a smaller sensor and now this with even smaller sensor! What's going on?

ybizzle: This is truly an act of robbery. Samsung stole the Fuji XF-1 design and made into an interchangeable lens mount. What they couldn't steal was the feeling of holding a magnificent photographic tool with a manual zoom twist lens. The XF-1 along with higher end X cameras take us back to pure photography. Think Leica M6 Titanium if you have the tan XF-1. Truly a masterpiece in design with image quality to match!

Well the X-Q1 resembles the RX100 which resembles the Canon S120 which resembles the look of a generic camera. The XF-1 was unique to the compact camera market because it was all about style and also a new twist barrel lens design.

The design was not "taken" rather the 1930's rangefinders inspired the design of the X cameras. Samsung flat out took the XF-1 design and made it their own.

Peter Bendheim: I can't help it but I have a strong dislike for Samsung - they are the copycats of the tech world - copied the iPad, iPhone, and they have a camera that is remarkably similar to the NEX range. Now a knock off of the Panasonic GM1..
They might make ok household appliances, but I'm sure never going to trust my picture taking experiences to them.
Design thieves, that's for sure.

You mean knock off of the XF1 which Panasonic copied as well.

Yea...It only has the best camera ever put in a smartphone.

Haha yes I see what you meant. I do photography on the side so yes it is a part time job. I wasn't fully serious about my statement. Yes I love the cameras but I also have to spend within my means. :)

I love both shooting and admiring them. My X100s and XF1 have been delightful to use as well as being admired by people that see them. The X-T1 that I also have on order will no doubt be another gem in my Fuji collection!

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (622 comments in total)
In reply to:

ybizzle: Buy a new EM-5 body for $799 (B&H) or a used one for $500 and call it a day. Pricing for this doesn't make sense when the body is only $100 cheaper than the EM-5.

R Butler your argument makes no sense. The EM10 is being sold as a lower model to the EM5. Yes it has wifi and a couple minor upgrades but you're giving up weather sealing, 5 axis, accessory port, and cannot add a battery grip. If all that is worth $100 in savings to you, then go for it. At the end of the day your $799 is buying you a better camera, even if it has been on the market for 2 years!

vadimraskin: i guess I have to wait for a budget version of EM1

See my comment above. $500-$550 for gently used EM-5s. Look on Ebay or local/online shops. Best value you'll find!

In reply to:

ybizzle: You can buy used EM-5 bodies for around $500 these days so why bother with this? That's what I paid for mine at a local camera shop. Why pay more and get less?

I was looking at it from a value/feature stand point. It's your money, spend as you wish!

Direct link | Posted on Jan 29, 2014 at 15:21 UTC

You would have to be a complete fruitcake to pay $350 for the 14-42mm lens, no matter how compact.
