Sergey Borachev: Very impressive, really nice features, except for one thing.

For a camera of this size, a built-in flash is much more useful than a hot shoe.

I make some use the built in flash on my now-looking-very-compact LX3 practically everytime I use the camera. Disappointed to see this feature go in the LX100.

An expensive watch seems to help...and a good photo of course. ;-)

On Fujifilm X-E1 hands-on preview (410 comments in total)
In reply to:

jj74e: the problem for me with this camera is that it is fuji's budget camera, but it still costs as much as panasonic's flagship, the gh2, which arguably will probably do a lot of things much better- weather sealed, AF, the plethora of video features, OLED screen and EVF, and more.

the x-e1 sure looks nice...but if they had to use a low spec LCD just to keep the costs down, you have to wonder what else is making it so expensive compared to so many other great cameras around the same price point.

sure its sensor is unique and it looks pretty...but uniqueness doesn't command 100% superior IQ, and looks only go so far. it's a good camera until you look at the prices for other great cameras.

In the UK the GH2 kit, is less than half the price of the X-E1 kit; a very good deal. Though AFAIA the GH2 is not weather sealed; but neither is the X-E1. Great IQ and low light performance,with very good lenses are the biggest draw of the X-E1 for me. I'm waiting for some more reviews and the price to come down a bit.

So, Hasselblad is to Sony, as Leica is to Panasonic then..?

On Sony NEX-6 Hands-on Preview (229 comments in total)

Joachim Gerstl: I'm impressed by the RX1 but will buy the NEX 6 plus the new zoom. I can not say how much I appreciate that the zoom starts at 16mm.
This is the most extensive announcement I have ever seen from a camera maker. I also think that the video camera will make some people happy.

Never had a Sony, but also attracted by the compact and useful 24-75mm (equiv) lens - 28mm is not a patch on 24mm, IMO. I'm looking forward to the reviews. Not bothered by the lack of a touch screen.
