It's never worthwhile money wise to buy a high premium gadget that goes obsolete in a few years, unless you want to own the brand no matter what.
Another victim of Amazon.com?
The specs list above missing the aperture priority mode in the Exposure Modes.
"S" means second edition? Anyway I applaud Fuji's refinement effort for a classic model.
Eating camera makers' lunch....
Sony has gone to great lengths to make this camera small, supposedly for travel , then why not have a GPS function built in it?
500 billion yen??? I think it's an error by enlarging 10 times the yen value.
None GPS for Sony's latest travel camera? This will turn off a lot of people, nowadays a smartphone will usually have GPS to code its photos in EXIF.
When something becomes No. 1 in a particular category, it deserves a premium price tag.
jmmgarza: The Koreans are kicking "nalga" and taking no prisoners. This country is making Japan and Germany look like slackers. Now if they can only get their brothers to the north to cool it, the world would be a happier place.
No matter how aggressive Samsung is to push their wares, their image of me-too products in the camera world cannot be shaken off, though they make really good smartphones and thus better be advised to focus on phones instead.
Edmond Leung: A great way to earn monies from the Chinese upstarts.
Corrupt officials may just want to designate it as a gift.
For a $1000 body only camera of this quality, what more can you ask for, for practical purposes?
dbateman: Not knowing much of the low end Nikon cameras, can the AIS lenses be used? I would assume so but what don't you get? Seems like a cheap option to use my old 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.2 AIS lenses.
Will the exposure meter work on AIS lenses?
Not a built-in WiFi
Christian Greutert: Hello, I live in Switzerland and has the Nikon P7100 for some time and I suggest you find pictures that I made with this device:http://www.cgreutert.ch/escapade_a_saas_fee/index.html
Yeah, your pictures are excellent, certainly comparable to those from DSLRs or mirrorless ones, mind to let us know how much it costs in Switzerland?
The beginning of the end for the DSLRs?
Well, the anticipation is there, can they afford to come out with a so-so product?
Richard Murdey: List price is 160,000 yen, currently retailing at 144,000 yen for preorders. A new silver X100 will set you back 86,500 yen, but the extra accessories add 13,000 or so.
The premium for "black" and "limited" and "not available yet" is about 45,000 yen.
Ten thousand copies are not a limited edition number, IMO
Sigma's F2.8 19 mm M4/3 lens to compete with Panasonic 20 mm F1.7, then everything depends on price
I'm surprised that Canon still manages to come out with a larger camera than the Panasonic GX1 plus G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm lens. The Panasonic model of course has the ability of lens changing, which is an irresistible advantage unless the Canon G1X can produce significantly higher image quality, and it seems not likely.
