645z is 8500 USD.
iudex: In all other votings my choice was the same as the choice of the majority (LX100, Sigma Art 50mm, Sony a6000) and I think those are deserved winners. However in this category I differ and am quite surprised by the leaders. I voted for Pentax 645Z, Nikon D750 and Sony. Pentax for bringing medium format quality and MPx count into a portable body for great price; Nikon for making almost perfect balance between features, picture quality and price and a7s for reminding that megapixels are not everything and for insane lowlight capability and high ISO quality. Anyhow I expected 7D II to lead, followed either by Nikons pro DSLRs or Sony a7s.
I did the same choice.
Where is Sigma 18-35/1.8???
Fujifilm X100T and Sigma offer the best IQ....Another strange choice of voters...Really, no Ricoh GR...FZ1000....
Sony Alpha a7 II and D750 - strange choice...
ogl: Not alternative to DXO Optics.
Yes. Layers - Photoshop helps you.

ogl: All weather APS-C fixed wide-angle lens compact camera will be the hit.
Ricoh GR is really hit.

ogl: This zoom is pure commercial product, firstly. And only then - it's photo tool.
DA50/1.8 and DA*55/1.4 are really good lenses. But it could be very good to produce not a big and slow zoom, but ALL WEATHER wide-angle prime.
Don't say what I should do and I won't say to you where you should go. OK? I had too much lenses to switch.
Pentax has very few new fast primes.
Only outstanding resolution at all focal length at 24 MP APS-C could save this zoom.
It's strange for me that there are users who could be happy with new very slow zoom.

alex_shin: This is what I was waiting for! Sounds like a great kit lens for my future K-3.My 16-45 is great, but I got tired of its very limited tele range.We'll see how the tests turn out. And, of course, the price shall go down, which it will, especially in a kit.
DC motor is not new, it's the same SDM with simpler gear.
We're sorry, but this video is not available in your region due to right restrictions.
Paul Rumohr: OK... what exactly happened here? These samples were soft, and now they're all sharpened up?
I saw those originals. They were NOT awesome.
What is happening here? Somehow history is getting changed here, because those crappy original samples have mysteriously disappeared.
Am I the only one here taking crazy pills?
I can use Lightroom, Photoshop, Magic Sharp, Slice Like a Ninja, or Cut Like a Razor Blade filters to help out any image to make it "look" sharper.
But you're not taking $900 bucks out of me for a mediocre lens where I have to do this to every image I take!
No. Me too.
BozillaNZ: ePhotoZine has published more photos, the first one has raw:http://www.ephotozine.com/article/panasonic-lumix-dmc-lx100-sample-photos-26312
And I've downloaded the P1050403.RW2, converted to CR2 using my project CR2Pana, and developed it using Canon RAW Image Task, the result is here:
The color and sharpness is very good! It's funny that Canon's software helped this camera to unleash it's potential but neverless it's doable and I will finish the CR2Pana's LX100 support by the time it's on the market!
not bad...but hard to say that it's very good.
