Bulky! ---Not trying to defend Sony, but I could imagine that reducing bulkiness was on their list of things to do. Not done and not because someone accidentally crossed it off ... there are probably many technical reasons for the lenses being as large as they are.
arhmatic: Canon and all camera makers, please add GPS.
I know why you are not doing it, please stop being nasty and obnoxious and add GPS. Thanks!
To all camera makers - just because you refuse to add GPS does not mean that I will just run and get your $200 dongle. Could be free, I don't want attachments. Period. All you are getting is some grumpy camera users, cursing you every day while manually adding the GPS data. Countless overall hours, better spend enjoying Photography. You marketing execs simply need to grow up!

Why would everything has to come to the USA? Yes, it's a large market, there is plenty of money outside.
The weight, size are not posted... Am I missing anything?
Or maybe this is omitted, for a reason?
I true pro level mirrors system is (almost) complete now.
Still need a good flash system and such, an upgrade to the Pro 1, but we will see the within months. Canikon is really history IMO. Last wish, hope Fujifilm will not go FF.
lacikuss: These comparisons should be done based on target market rather than camera technology.
I would like this:
Best Landscape CamerasBest Sports CamerasBest Family CamerasBest Pocketable CamerasBest Video CamerasBest Camera under $500Best Camera under $1000Best Camera under $1,500
See you're (dpr) still very much focused on product and very little on customer segment. Focus on customer needs and you'll be better off.
Well, you have eight categories... each category would need several cameras to make it worthwhile, right? How many cameras have been released this year?
$1700 seems to be a fair price for a high end mirrorless. This was the X-pro1 price two years ago, and for the X-PRO 2 I expect the same, or slightly less...
Frankly, I don't see any camera these days justifying a price over $1700, full frame DSLR included.
Would they sell the gold plated lens cap separately?
I might get just that...
Jogger: Im not the target market for this camera, but, i hate it and somehow compelled to comment on it.
I love you both. I do have an issue with this camera though... wait, nevermind...
"Despite its nominally lower resolution than most competitors in the high-end bracket of the smartphone market in our brightly lit studio scene the Apple iPhone 6 Plus performs very well and squeezes more detail out of its 8MP image sensor than some 13MP models. Thanks to a well-balanced approach to noise reduction and sharpening it is even very close to the 16MP Samsung Galaxy S5. "
They are precisely 2 years "close" IMO. The iPhone 7s will probably be "very close" to the Samsung Galaxy S5...
This should go down in the marketing manuals as an anti-campaign.
If my information is correct, and to summarize that I've read so far -
- The Leica is basically the re-branded Panasonic. The outside is much cleaner, while the insides are probably the same.- Price difference is +300. Basically 25% more for a better, nicer, cleaner envelope.
Is it worth it? If I was in the market for this type of camera, I'd take the Leica, FIRM!
Time for a survey?Tilt Screen? Yes/No?
arhmatic: The iPhone is probably the most used camera mainly because it's in your pocket. I've been using one daily since 2007.
Otherwise, is below average, I have to sadly admit... No exposure compensation, no ISO, interface nowhere near Nokia's....
@Mrrowe8 - I am sure you are not imagining I am using an old, 2007 iPhone, right? I've been using them all since 2007 - Fist gen, 3G, 4, 5 --- at the moment they were released, nowhere near Nokia or Samsung. Is it safe to assume that the 6 plus would be good for 2012, but this is 2014 right?

Beat Traveller: "Phablet" is definitely the worst name ever.
but there is no need to reuse this new annoying word...
Dana Scott: In 5 days this will be distant memory.
In 5 days, I'll say "Apple, finally... but too little, too late... next time, think faster, apple..."
justmeMN: I selfishly miss John the most. So many great songs never written and recorded, because of his murder. He was always my favorite Beatle.
...and crazy people still are free to carry guns in this America...
5.5 - 6" is more and more common. This will be standard in not too much time. If Apple is not doing at least 5" on the next iphone, they are pretty much out.
