Mike FL: The price is the same but "The Sony mount does not include the VC image stabilization functionality".

Interesting.

@beavertown
Of course they do, the market for Sony is a lot smaller than for Canikon, let alone Pentax.

JFBee: I wish a Nikon Df was built like this. Maybe they get inspired by Fuji, who got the dials ergonomics right. Let's hope AF performance will match that of a DLSR.

The shutter release on the DF is very much easier to reach than the one on the X-T1 which will surely lead to bumping to other dials.
How is that for ergonomics?

I don't mind about the stiff EC-dial as long as the metering is allright, if not a looser dial wouldn't clinch the deal. I do mind abput the path of my index finger to the shutter release, if the right eyelet is in the way as on the X-Pro1 and the X-E1/2 it will be a dealbreaker.

cgarrard: Nice that the viewfinder magnification is increased over previous models, I seem to recall they were .78x or something? I've avoided reviewing the lower end Nikons primarily for that reason, too small of a viewfinder. .85x magnification is my limit on APS-C for DSLR's ill use, so this may fall into the "gets reviewed" category.

Looks pretty well balanced out as a package overall and at first glance I like the layout of the controls, size of it too. IQ should be spot on here.

Not a bad DSLR for a first go or a nice backpacking DSLR, thumbs up Nikon.

The viewfinder has the same magnification as the Pentax K-r (2009) and the K-x (2010). I guess we'll just have to wait 4 or more years before Nikon puts a pentaprism in all its bodies. These marketing guys are a waste of time.

cgarrard: Not a bad stab at this one. The two 16-50's announced was a good idea, one for compactness and a nice bright zoom, Samsung's weakness isn't its lens lineup.

I'm disappointed that its the same sensor as a previous model, but hey, I guess they think they can do it if Canon and Oly and Pentax and Sony do it too. These days the resolution is plenty, but I'd at least like to have seen them put in better low light performance and wider DR from this sensor. Those are improvements I think are needed and vital if you want people to really start noticing and buying.

Overall not too much to complain about here, see what the price is and then take it from there. A decent stab though Samsung.

Carl

The sensor is not old and neither new. See Imaging Resource.

I mainly shoot JPEG so the lens corrections including CA are a very welcome surprise. The 'LOW' ISO is also very useful. Can't wait to see more!

Axel Vercauteren: Better AF in live view, nice.
Alas nothing about how accurate the picture on the LCD of the final image is. Also: how well is exposure simulated?

@T3. I was referring to reviews of X-S1 and P7100 and other cams at neoamera.com which note errors in the live histogram. Maybe unlikely for other cams (Rebels) but not right by definition.

To T3.
Ok. How reliable is the live histogram from the 100D? Or from the Rebels in general?

Still the awkward rear dial, if you want to develop a RSI buy this one.

So Panny got rid of the awkward rear dial, good news!

Test: Noise of XZ-2 compared to LX7/G15 etc.

Again a sticky control-dial (as on FZ150 etc.) and a lousy user manual. Rubbish.

According to imaging-resource.com the X-5 does not support Aperture- or Shutter priority. What a waste.

I didn't buy the FZ150 because the rear dial is extremely difficult to handle. From the manual of the FZ200 it doesn't seem that the functions of this dial have changed, so I hope that the mechanics of this dial have changed for the better.
