You must be very stylish. Both the Nikon Coolpix A and Ricoh GR give much better IQ than the X-Trans sensor. They are both smaller, cheaper and sporting much better lenses.
The only thing the X100 has going for it is the hybrid viewfinder.
And yes, I will upgrade my X100 when Fuji dumps the X-Trans sensor.
Sorry for delayed response.
@Brendon1000: I own NCA + X100 (Bayer) and tried X-Trans 2 camera so it is based on actual usage and lots of help from here to get the best out of X-Trans raw files. The X-Trans is indeed the USP, but a marketing one. Fuji clings to it ignoring the progress of Bayer sensors.
@Richard Buttler: JPEGs on dpreview? That is your raw response? Well, the mush of the Trans-X sensor is available in both jpegs and raws. I believe you apparently had a faulty NCA (lens) which explains your below par results IQ wise. Both my X100(s) had dust inside them btw, so QA is not better at the Mount. I am surprised you would shoot the X100 wide open for anything but Nessie. The 28mm vs 35mm is not a big deal for people with feet. And 12-16 megapixels are more than enough for most people if you actually compose the picture before you hit the shutter. Finally the NCA is less than half the price of X100S and T around where I live (albeit without the external OVF).

"They're not a huge group but we know what our customers want, and the dp0 is a perfect camera for them."
Dear Sigma. I own 5 (have owned one more) Sigma cameras and the DP0Q is not what I want. I want a functioning Sigma Photo Pro. When you have fixed that we can start talking about hardware.
xpanded: Que? Only one camera actually won by getting one or more vote(s) than number two. So which camera actually won? D750 or A7ii?
Huh? It is math, not semantics. DPreview claims the manufacturers are very interested in this poll. Thus it is only fair that DPreview dicloses the result. Otherwise it should had been stated (before the poll): ln case of winner and runner up being very close we will go kindergarten and declare multiple winners. All winners must bring chocolate cake for the loosers and everybody will get a paper crown to wear.

I love the deadpan British humour. No one but you could write "what horrible, sexist behavior" and make it look like you mean it.
"That makes me wonder what the photographer has in his mind when he walks into the camera store to buy something that he can take away with him at the weekend."
These days SHE orders all three cameras online, try them out and return the two of them.
Btw - the three cameras do not share the same EVF. The GM5 has a reduced resolution according to dpreview.
No, six years say 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014.
Peter Evans: @DPreview
Could you possibly find an interviewer whose speech is at least in some way intelligible?
I'll second that. And please one that does not do "upspeak".
What is the logic of posting a stand report of Fujifilm before posting news of all the goodies Leica announced today?
Scandinavians have bigger brains ;-)
jkoch2: The LX7 has time lapse, built-in ND filter, 120fps 720p video, and currently sells for $260 at Amazon. The sensor is only 1/1.7, but the lens is a fast f/1.4 at wide and f/2.8 at long. It fits in a large pants pocket or any coat pocket.
Is it really worth another $600 to get a m4/3 sensor and 4k? Hard to think up a good lie that will persuade SWMBO.
That mechanical lens cover looks a bit vulnerable in the open mode, as if it could be circumcised accidentally.
"Hard to think up a good lie that will persuade SWMBO."Because you are worth it Rumpole ;-)
MPerks: I don't see any mention of OIS. Surely it has OIS right?
Digilux 2 mk 2 :-)
Why not a round viewfinder? And an AA-filter? Hmmm... :-(But happy about double SD (easy backup on iPad) and choice of battery.
Surprised Fuji is not going full frame. Hopefully next time dropping the X-Trans sensor as well.
Sigma DP1 MerrillSigma DP2 MerrillSigma DP3 MerrillSigma SD1 MerrillSigma DP2 Quattro
Now that is strange. Why have they omitted them?!
Will there be samples from the unreal-world as well?
D1N0: Coolpix A? Who ever heard of that. It's price $200 more at launch has now dropped below that of the GR
Well, if you know the price... you must have heard of it :-)
