Jonathan F/2: So nice of Fuji to keep updating their unfinished cameras.

Really inappropriate comment. No camera is "finished".

sh10453: I'd think that Panasonic engineering management is now operating in panic mode, with a series of urgent meetings!
Historically, Panasonic has been very much the leader in this type of cameras.
One of my cameras is the FZ200, and I like the 600mm f/2.8 constant, but I certainly don't like the tiny sensor size on it due to poor image quality in low light situations (if flash is not used).

This is a nice camera. A 600mm Zeiss lens on a 1" sensor is decent for many photographic situations.
I think the next challenge is an 800mm on a 1" sensor with at least the same lens brightness f/2.4-4, or the same 600mm lens on a 1.5" sensor. I see that coming in a few short years (5 years? Maybe less!).

Well done, Sony engineers. You deserve a credit. Great job!!! Now hurry up and get us the 800mm f/2-2.8 ... :)

Absolute nonsense. You can get the Pany FZ1000 for less than $700. Sony can't compete on cost, regardless of any other features. I have the FZ1000 - amazing camera.

Kiwisnap: Had one on loan. Did not like it at all. AF was not reliable. Also it did not feel like a creative tool, it felt like a Star Trek prop.

You need to spend more time with it and learn it. Awesome camera. BTW, the creativity needs to come from you. The camera, any camera, is a tool.

Go see it. Great film.

If the GH5 were coming soon - as some of you think - then we would not be seeing these latest updates to the GH4. It will be a while before the GH5 surfaces.

cgarrard: I still think the L1 handles way better and is much prettier to look at ;). Too bad panasonic couldnt have just taken the L1's shell, replaced the OVF with a nice new EVF and upgraded the sensor/af/processor/lcd/menu :).

Carl - I own and love the L1 too, however, to be fair, the L1 is a 4/3 camera (4/3 flange) and is larger. Because of its size, you and I know that there will be plenty of folks here complaining about it.

Have you noticed how all these mirrorless cameras - which are exceptional by the way - are now receiving silver awards instead of gold, even though they are more than equivalent to - actually superior to - the earlier versions which received gold awards. What's up with that, DPR? Care to explain?

In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: It's kind of hard to support into the Sony camera system when they only have a handful of lenses and the ones that are available are grossly overpriced.

Handful of lenses? That is absolutely not true. They have a number of FE lenses for the A7 series. I should know. I own 7 of them, and there are several more I do not own as yet.

Eugene232: nice cute camera.
$790 is a fair price for it.

Glad to see that you are such a marketing and sales guru, with a deep understanding of cost of goods.

I own an E-M1. For me, from this point on, any Olympus (or Pany) camera I buy must include hybrid AF (CDAF and PDAF). Otherwise, forget it. At that price, it is outrageous that Oly left this feature out. And I happen to be an Oly fan.

caver3d: Actually, DPR, the question should be "Why would I NOT buy a mirrorless camera?". It is the future. Get with it, people!

Guess what? I have tried both. I was also a very early adopter of mirrorless, after shooting with dSLRs. I've been there and done that. I also do a lot of photography in caves under adverse conditions. Paid my dues. Have you, Tungsten?

Eddy M: Tried the cc 2015 last week but it only loaded once then everytime I launched it, it crashed and crashed and crashed. Reinstalled, fix my graphic card driver, followed the helps from adobe forum but still didn't help. Yesterday, I uninstalled it for good!!!

Get a new computer. The problem is not with Adobe. Works fine for me.

Okay, so when is the fire sale for the NX1? I'll help them out with their sales, if they cut the price. So will you.

Well, if it's true, I'm going to wait for the fire sale on the NX1. Wait a minute, I have a Sony A7RII, I don't need an NX1. Then again, if it's cheap enough...

Canon double-speak to avoid the inevitable. It is not really about "market shrinkage". It is all about maintaining "market share". And Canon is failing at this. As long as the exceptional mirrorless cameras and camera innovations continue with Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and Fujifilm, Canon (and even Nikon) will be in greater trouble, and will continue to see their "market share" shrink. That is a fact. (And Canon's new mirrorless products are very underwhelming with no real innovation.)
