I was hoping they'd announce the successor to the RX1 yesterday too.

It's unfortunate they don't support RAW with these cameras.

Finally, something unique and different!

"Think of a digital version of the rather beautiful Canon P rangefinder for example". Love this idea!!

Not so fast, Fuji fans.

The Leica T has also upped the specs on their EVF viewfinder.

To enjoy the new feature, simply toss out your old standalone viewfinder and spend another $600 on its replacement.

Leica thanks you for your loyalty and assures you that your work reminds them of Cartier-Bresson.

I think that's his point. It would have been nice if both cameras were able to use the same EVF.

On Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM review preview (19 comments in total)

I've been contemplating purchasing this lens for some time because of it's quality and great price of $899. I'm glad I waited because I got in on an Amazon.com Lightning Deal the other day and purchased it for only $699. WOW!

On Fujifilm X100S preview (218 comments in total)

Is it just me, or does the OMD beat all 3 of the others in this test in terms of sharpness? What am I missing? There's definitely more dynamic range in the X100s that I can see, compared to the OMD.

This is what Fuji should do with their X100 line (been wishing on that for a while). Three different bodies with 3 different lenses. I'd carry 3 X100's, each having a different focal length (35, 50, 85 in 35mm equiv), and never have to change lenses again.

Is this lens weather sealed? (Sorry if it's already been asked.)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 preview extended article (280 comments in total)

hiplnsdrftr: I am a professional photographer that has been begging for almost exactly this kind of camera...

The RX1 appears to be an awesome accomplishment. I love the simplicity and focus in it's design. I am relieved that Sony resisted any temptation to include a flip screen. Furthermore, I am fine with the lack of a viewfinder. Honestly, I have used enough digital P&S cameras over the last 7 years that I am just as comfortable shooting with a screen as I am a viewfinder. The inclusion of a pop up flash makes this camera nearly perfect. (I can't believe Canon left it out of the EOS-M!)

Not so sure about the price though. Probably worth it, but to many other things I can get for my $2,800.

Can't a professional photographer have a fun "after work" camera to carry around? It doesn't have to contribute to their bottom line. But, one need it could fulfill for "working" would be to shoot near silently (no loud shutter) in a situation that requires it.

On Nikon D4 & D800: What do the Professionals Think? article (391 comments in total)

It would be nice to see a follow up to this article. It would be interesting to hear the same photographers thoughts after using the cameras for quite some time now. Were the cameras everything they had hoped/thought they'd be, etc.?

On Preview:olympusEM5 (1364 comments in total)

What am I doing wrong? The E-M5 seems to have better resolution/sharpness than the D3s using DPR's studio scene comparison tool. Is that correct?

nxp3: Apple has been pulling the same stunt year after year. No SD card slot, no way to expand, yet people keep buying it. An sdhc or sd card is a necessity not an option. You can't leave that out. It's like buying a Ferrari with no tires. A super model with missing front teeth, a camera without lens. Should I go on?

They do make an SD Card adapter for those that require it.

Didn't work for me either using Internet Explorer 9 under 32 bit Windows 7. I installed Google Chrome and it worked properly. Not sure what's up with IE.

Cute dog. Love the blue merle color. Is he a Border Collie or Australian Shepherd?

On Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS preview (182 comments in total)

I think this lens will really appeal to the mFT's video shooters more so than photographers. The zoom lever is variable control, so depending on how far you move it will determine how quickly it zooms in/out. That's important for nice controlled smooth zooms when shooting video.

A "pancake" zoom is very exciting in itself too though.
