Gosh, I don't think it looks all that bad. Kind of a NEX-7 on steroids.
Do you need a degree in Applied Physics before you can purchase one?
rponiarski: My concern is a successor to the E-P3. I have an E-P2 and skipped the P3 as it isn't that big an upgrade. I was hoping for an E-P5, with the OMD sensor in a higher end PEN body. The E-PL5 is nice, but I like the handling of the E-P series, with multiple control dials and a hefty, quality feel to it. Maybe at CES...
My concern too, especially since they finally included a built-in flash with the EP3 (I have an EP2).
This is a really hideous looking camera. Whose hands is this model designed for, a Close Encounter alien's?
If you're that rich, why not buy all three?
Great shot! Real eye catcher!
For some reason there seems to be an overload when these samples are first posted. As i mentioned below, I can't load them, they won't come out on my screen. refreshing the browser is futile. And as someone else pointed out, this has happened before. It takes a good two days before everyone can gain access to the samples.
My PC won't bring up the samples, won't load them. Anybody else having this problem?
No VF? Thumbs down. Design? Same deal. Looks like something rolled off a Soviet clone assembly line. I haven't seen an uglier camera in years. Sad, too, because I like the ergonomics of Pentax's DSLR's.
People getting married have no qualms shelling a lot of money out for limos and flowers, but they immediately moan and complain when they look at prices for a wedding photographer. It’s actually amusing. As the years pass there will ne no limo, no flowers, but the photos will be there as loving testimony to the event.
Funny, at a distance, just getting up, it looked like Hopper's famous diner painting.
I'm sorry but I'm completely lost here, and I used Google Translate. Where is a concrete description of anything regarding a tripod collar for my long lenses?
Good to hear. Great. But i couldnt make anything out of the link and that website.
Wow. Looks too good to be true!
kahren: this is almost the same thing as the vf-2, why bother? the price is a lot better, so i think its a better deal for those who were contemplating buying the vf-2. but why not tailor to an even wider market if you are going to bother with making another VF. IMO they should have made this an even lower spec one, like the panasonic lvf1 and sold it for $99 instead. :(
I gotta agree.
How does Fuji plan to suddenly overtake Nikon? And what about Canon? While they've hit a home-run with the X100, I think this is wild thinking.
Dan Nikon: Nice, charge people a grand to get an upgraded LCD that is already available on the M8.2 or was an upgrade option on the "Your investment is future-proofed" M8 / original version. As a professional user of Leica film gear for strictly black and white documentary work, I would *LOVE* to see another company come out with a better RF camera that will take M mount lenses, be weather sealed, 12-18 MP FF with high ISO as good as the D700 or better for about $3,000-$4,500.
Their film bodies are outstanding, a fraction of the price and I have dropped all of mine at least once onto concrete never resulting in more than a RF adjustment if that. But these $7,000-$8,000 digital versions and the price of new glass is just plain stupid. Fo the price of an M9 and 35 1.4-II, I got a Nikon 35 1.4 G, a mint used Leica 35mm F/2 asph, Fuji X100, top of the line Mac Pro with SSD and 64 GB of ram and enough Tri-X and paper to shoot two book projects and print 4 shows.
Well put! What price glory in a technology that shifts so rapidly, too.
