Gary Martin: Offer a wide prime and I'm interested.
If they do, it would have to be much wider than 28mm. Because Ricoh already offers 2 compacts w/ 28mm. Ricoh also offers an adapter that will give you 21mm.
I seriously doubt they will offer any add'l lenses for Q anytime soon.
are we going to the good ol days when dpreview are posting rumors again? Thumb up for dpreview.
what a joke.
FBreview: It's a pity to read all these critics only based on the specifics. If the interest of a camera was based on those facts, what could be said about a M9?
Once a deep review will reveal the amazing IQ provided by an expert-like-controllable-pocketable camera,I hope we'll laugh at this wave of grumpy photographers.
And if this first shot from Nikon is not the perfect tool, we can see clearly that the whole market is on the way we all wish: an affordable "reflex IQ" in your pocket. Just a matter of -short- time. So why complaining that much?
The ricoh is very different.People love ricohs not because of IQ, but control layout. This coolpix will be the opposite.
plasnu: In Japan, Sigma has just started cash back campaign for $250-600 for any who currently owns any sigma digital camera. If you own DP2 Merrill, you can buy DP3 Merrill for about $550.
sigma marketing is just weird.
what is new in this release? BH is already taking preorders at 999.
Professor999: This news is more recent than Nikon's (check the time stamp).Question, Why is this article pushed down the list? I almost missed it.Normally articles are posted chronologically.Am I missing something?
It may seem that way, but news are not posted chronologically.
when are they adding retina display support?
There's definitely hints of Ricoh on this camera. The power button lights up in green!
Alizarine: General consensus seems to be:
If it's a Pentax, shoot it down. I really don't get the mindset of some people.
If Pentax were to make the exact same cameras as Canon, Nikon, Sony, on one would buy them. They have to be different.
There are cameras that exist to meet a need, then there are cameras exist to inspire process of photography. This camera is more of a latter than the former, unlike RX100. Sure, with 1inch sensor would make it better, but it's too early, wait till 2014-2015.
The camera's placement of controls reminds me of Olympus OM-D E-M5 and even E-5. Record button on top, compensation dial, wheel on back, and direction controls on back instead of wheel. I like it.
zinedi: I want to express my greatest respect to FUJI for implementing of revolutionary OVF in this compact camera category. FUJI goes against the consumerist main stream manufacturers who omit quality viewfinders or viewfinders at all. It is a good message for us who want better PHOTOGRAPHIC tool, not only spectacular toy. Thanks Fuji.
That's why Fuji is so great, because there are hundreds of cameras w/o OVF or good OVF. Canon G is so crappy.
brelip: 24mm wide angle should be emphasized more. 28mm is just... well, boring. That's why Sony, Oly, Canon, Nikon is losing with nature/landscape enthusiasts. Fuji, samsung, and panasonic get it.
Try do a 5 seconds exposure in panorama mode.
