xpanded: GA645ziD please. f:4.0 is fine. Please make it in black so it is easy to distinguish from the (standard) film version. Would appreciate it very much if you would use a standard Bayer sensor. 50 megapixels is fine. Thanks in advance.
Yes - they were(are) indeed wonderful cameras. I still use mine on occasion.

"The Sony RX1R II is the kind of camera that turns heads."
Wrong. That titel goes to the Sigma Quattro series sharply followed by Hasselblad's rebadged Sonys.
DPReview 4 Nov 2015: "But do these technologies add up to performance that can compare to the best of the a7R II's DSLR competition? In some ways, yes, but overall, no."
DPReview 17 Nov 2015: "...the a7R II offers excellent autofocus".
The 4 Nov article seems to have slipped your mind. May I suggest you either modify the 4 Nov article or this review for a consistent message. Thanks in advance.
"even in lighting as low as EV-2 where other cameras struggle"
Benchmark is -4 EV now so why on Earth does Sony write this?
Too little, too late.
Glenn Barber: Another Beef - why did you perpetuate the confusion that we asked for an uncompressed raw. Everyone who knew what they were talking about in the forums in DPreview said that we wanted LOSSLESS RAW - and preferably compressed.
@Rishi Sanyal - maybe this was addressed off camera or maybe I missed it in the interview. When will Sony bring uncompressed raw to all the people who made the A7-series viable (i.e. all A7 mark 1 buyers) as well as the A7II? If you did not ask him on/off camera why not? The continued support to existing customers is far more important than the very latest tech advance. Thanks for replying. EDIT: Typo
I think I missed it. When did he promise that A7, A7R, A7S and A7II users would get uncompressed raw?
Silverback46: I thought the world was supposed to end when the blood moon happened? Truly this is the sign we were waiting for...
There was a bug in the Blood Moon software though, so it will only happen if and when that is fixed...
Snikt228: But they didn't actually fix the major bugs with this "fix" release?
Does anyone's Synchronize folders feature work?
Never got the bug fix to actually work. Reinstalled LR 6.1 from backup. A big sigh of relief as all my photos were still there.
Sony should hire Shakin' Stevens as a poster boy for the A7-line:
"You just have to shake fast to counter the shutter shock".
Fortunately Sony will probably soon change mount again.
SmilerGrogan: The bottom line with this software is that photos processed with it have a distinct look that is used by many of the world's most highly paid professionals. So if you want that "professional" look, you need to switch to Capture One.
You said there was not one and there is. That is not smartass - that is the truth. Hard to handle?
Let me name just one to render your statement false: run as a perpetual non subscription software.
Owen: Lets see, do I want an overpriced camera with a fixed lens, or the Sony? Hmmmm, really hard decision. Have to start saving up.....
Let's see, do I want a camera that shoots 14 bits and has resales value in 3 years time, or do I want an 11 bit dressed up as a 14 bit. Hmmmm, really easy decision.
JakeB: No one here or in the Leica forum could tell the difference between an image from this camera and one from a cheap dslr processed in Silver Efex.
Everybody would be able to tell the difference. The Silver Efex Pro is a tiff file while the Leica is a dng file.
dougster1979: Sigma have shown they can Kick ass in the lens world, it`s time they applied the same logic to their cameras. Art series body eagerly awaited!
Would you be so kind and tell me on which camera it is easier to make user banks than the Sigmas? Would you be so kind and tell me which camera has an easier menu system? Which Sigma cameras have you actually used if any? High ISO, writing times (on some of the cameras) and the software are not good. Otherwise Sigma does not really need to change anything and when it comes to menus and handling loads of competitors could learn a thing or two.
Juck: The answer to a question that noone asked.
And you have how many shootings hours with the Foveon sensors under your belt?
Joachim Gerstl: I understand that we all hate to change lenses but this is ridiculous. Next sensor or AF innovation and you have to trow away all your lenses instead of just replacing your camera.Just to be different is not enough.
With a price ranging from €375 to €399 for the Merrills (each) or €1.099 for all of them and considering the quality of the lenses and the sensor this is not expensive. It may not be a sensible use of Earth's resources though.
Akpinxit: what is so "compact" about this camera ?
Useable ISO-range and battery. And yes, I will probably break down and buy this one just to try the Quattro line out.
bigdaddave: Well if you are silly enough to buy one you can afford a new pc
A MacIntosh is a Personal Computer.
xpanded: "...size/price/image quality balance it offers and the style with which it does so."
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).
