This is roughly what I thought the Sony RX10 would be.
snow14: i don't thing sigma will get AF issue solved on this one.
What AF issue?
TWIZEEL: could be better if 12 - 24 or 35 - 70
Nope, this is the sweet spot.
makofoto: Why are the shots so grainy?
Noob forgot to turn NR on in camera
Phoque: If only they could put out as many good lenses as they are unveiling new generations of camera...
This criticism is holding less and less water, yet people keep regurgitating it at every opportunity.
As soon as I can afford it, Im getting the stabilised 35mm and 50mm primes, and when it comes out, the 20mm pancake.
zapatista: Dang, I wish Sigma would come out with two similarly bright excellent lenses for about half the price.
I wish Sigma would make pancakes.
viking79: $350 for an f/2.8 pancake with no OSS? Sony sure knows how to market lenses. Canon 22mm f/2 is a full stop larger aperture and $100 less :) I imagine the Sony will sell better though.
It looks good though, would look nice on a NEX 6.
Wait, you want it to be a pancake AND have OSS?
Why stop there? It should also be F/1.2 and make cappucinos.
20mm pancake = Instabuy.
slncezgsi: ... so the m4/3 is going viral ;)
@manuelvilardmacedo, you fail at sarcasm :)
Nex + Eye-fi is infinitely better than this.
I wish manufacturers wouldn't use clueless market researchers to determine camera specifications.
This camera, and many others (samsung galaxy camera) would have been much better if they had smaller zoom ranges and larger sensors. But because optical zoom is a key spec that the average consumer looks for, we have to be content with suboptimal products.
I wish sensor surface area was a spec listed on every camera, and every cellphone camera ever sold.
Okay, so the EM-5 won... but the Nex 6 wasn't even an /option/ in the poll?
Nappe1: OM-D EM-5 Definetely. making weather proof, Image Stabilized, such high quality digital camera in such small size is a big achievment.
Not really, if you consider how small the sensor is. Great camera, but hardly innovative/groundbreaking or a "big achievement".
Vlad4D: Let's add missed cameras and restart the pool !!!Missing cameras are: Sony NEX-6, Fuji X-E1, Pentax K-5 II and few more.Press "Like" on this message if you agree !!!
I mean, seriously, how can you have the OM-D EM-5 on the list, but not a single Nex?
That would be the same as having the 5D III on the list but not the D800.
deep7: I want to vote for the Fuji XE1 but it's not on the list. Polite request....
No Nex 6 Either!
Jan Kritzinger: Why do this article /before/ the launch of W8?
After the launch of W8 nothing will beat an x86 slate for photo editing. It's less than two weeks away.
Not to mention that you could've included a Samsung series 7 slate running the release preview of W8.
Why do this article /before/ the launch of W8?
attomole: Why would they need to do this?
because someone made the mistake of putting a marketer in charge.
Hasselblad destroyed by marketers. #tragic.
The sad part is that they could have done this really really well, but some designer stuffed it up, and the beancounters in charge didn't have enough brains to realize it.
If HB gets proper designers, and gives this HB styling from 40 years ago (in stead of one year ago) it could be amazing.
Right now it's garbage - indicative of a massive failure on the part of management and design.
