ybizzle: Fuji keeps on impressing me and taking my money. If they continue to come out with such solid cameras, I may have to go into severe debt after buying all of them.
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!

Epic fail beyond words...
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!

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

Fuji has just created the greatest camera of all time. Bravo!
Fuji has done it again. This camera is the pinnacle of perfection!
Sadly nothing noteworthy this year. Hopefully CP+ will yield something more exciting!
The 1DX...Unmatched performance with a price to match!
I'm going to assume this will come in around the $499 mark with kit lens. But then the question is, why by this off brand camera vs say a Fuji X-A1 that will most likely yield better IQ and looks better to boot?
It would be a lie if I said I'm not partial to Fuji. I've owned and sold many Fuji cameras in the past and currently own a few. Of those, I truly cherish the X100S and XF1. From their clean retro design to their image quality, Fuji X cameras take you back to how photography used to be. The X100s especially with it's dials and aperture ring give the photographer direct access to what's used the most. Very well could be the greatest camera I have ever used.
peevee1: DPR, I cannot believe you highlighted L830 on 3 (THREE!) pages (6 to 8)! This is certainly an ad.
Clearly this was because of how ground breaking it was, not to mention it's impact on the photography world. We are talking about a camera with 34x optical zoom!! 34!!
The only product that is causing a buzz with Nikon is the Df. Hate or love it, it is unique in the DSLR segment. There is nothing more I love than a retro designed camera meant purely for photography. Hence why I own an OMD-EM5, X100S, and Lumix DMC-L1 amongst others.
However, it is the L1 which affords me that pure joy of photography when coupled with manual Carl Zeiss lenses. No video, no scene modes, no nonsense. Truly a real photographer's camera!
rfsIII: Will someone at CES please tape the Nikon seminars and show them here. That would be a huge reader service.
Wow people still use tapes? Do you have any idea how much tape you would need for 15 mins of 4K footage? :O
ybizzle: A page out of Fuji's design on the XF1. Sadly, it has none of the charm or sophistication of the XF1. Of course, the image quality is also lacking. The XF1 was and still is the pinnacle of compact camera design. Elegant, yet modern especially in brown/tan form. Truly an exceptional piece that harkens back to the Leica days and the M6 Titanium. Magnificent!
Pedro please see my response above. I've seen IQ from doezens of similar spec cams and this is no different.
