Someone might have already done it. Smartphones seem to have the craziest add-on accesories available on market.

this looks like a camera target towards travellers and might compete with likes of Canon SX-xxx series of camera. I wont mind a smaller zoom range and larger sensor and faster lens on a similar looking camera.

after reading rave reviews of D7000 and D800 I had bought Nikon DSLR and Lenses. But after facing leaking oil on both the camera and frustrating experience with their service department. I got rid of Nikon kit and went back to Canon cameras. Shame on Nikon with sub-par handling of known issues on their cameras.

Todays announcements from Olympus and Sony shows difference between a camera manufacturer and a consumer electronics manufacturer. I am really tempted to get a mirrorless camera from either Fuji or one of m43 camera makers as a carry around camera for macro work.

Wow, the macro light is awesome. I am placing a pre-order for that one today.

I am really interested in the film duplicator, I have tons of old films that I need to be digitised.

14-42 looks like a good lens for small m4/3 camera. I will wait for reviews to see how does it compare to Panasonic 12-32 lens.

I guess this camera will support the larger telephoto lenses that Fuji is planning to release in near future. I just want Fuji to release a 90/100mm macro lens with 1:1 magnification ratio before I decide to buy into the X-system.

d10694: So we buy a camera because it's very small, and then buy something to make it bigger so that we can hold it. Obvious.

Ironic, right?

Thanks for the comparison, it was just in time for me. I am currently looking at replacing 10 year old tripod head.

Finally I can replace my old SX-10 IS with a new weather sealed camera. Price seems pretty decent as well.

Fuji is on right road, bringing more choice of glass to the users.

Quite an interesting addition to Samsung Mirrorless camera. Sadly though unlike Olympus/Panasonic 's m4/3 or Sony NEX non of the other mirrorless solutions are easily available in India.

On Fujifilm announces XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS wideangle zoom article (172 comments in total)

Chaitanya S: Along with m43, only Fuji X-system is becoming an serious alternative for photographer wanting to go mirrorless route.

Sony has always brought some innovative design concepts to market. But when it comes to interchangeable camera systems- lenses are going to be at the heart of any system. And so far Sony hasn't been paying much attention to that. Lets see if 2-3 years down the line they offer lenses like m43 or Fuji-X. Until then I am going to stay away from Sony. I am hoping the success of A7/7r motivates Canon and Nikon to design and release their own FF mirrorless cameras. In past both these manufacturers had rangefinders in their catalogues so making small FF lenses shouldn't be a big problem for either of the two.

only if sony releases some good lenses for that system. So far on E-mount I have seen more bodies being released than lenses. Also Sony has history of abandoning systems for no reason at all.
