ManuelVilardeMacedo: This time Hassy doesn't have to go the lengths it went with the Lunar: in this case it's hard to make the raw material uglier than it is....Oh wait, there will always be exotic woods to get the job done.
be able to make something ugly, horrible. It is not easy!
As someone said in a text that read this will eventually Hasselblad Caterpillar
OMG, Will now begin to light the flamethrower and the party will start!DPreview likes to be provocative :-)
WACONimages: Seems brilliant. Use a Olympus OM-D or EM-1 and this tinny Panasonic as 2nd body with a fast prime or the 14-140II as walk around combo.
Agree, but E-M1 with a zoom, maybe 12-40 2.8 r other, and this one with a fast prime, 12/17mm or maybe the new Panaleica 15mm 1.7 when come out. Nice combo indeed.This wil be a good 2th camera to use with OM-D line.
M43 world needs a small fixed and fast lens camera and other with fixed fast zoom, who goes first?
I think this camera with a Oly. 12 mm or 17mm may be a temptation for street photographers.
qwertyasdf: The A7 kit is downright a bargain PERIODPeople, hold your negativity until you see the Hasselblad versionUntil then, we can only speculate what it will be called..
Hasselblad Peculiar?Hasselblad Molecular?Hasselblad Caterpillar?
Digitall: Nikon cheapskate prosumer built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, and 1080/60p video recording, really Nikon? Now I got Facepalm!I think the Nikon forgot to remove these specifications, simply put them by mistake :-)

More +-5 years, and APS-C goes to vegetate in rare format DSLR bodies. APS-C format DSLR is doomed, now more than ever. Nostradamus was consulted and what he foresees :-)
tanmancs: Attention Olympus, time to grow some balls and give us the Full Frame EM-1. No more excuses.
And...BMW owns MINI.Volkswagen owns Bentley.Volkswagen owns Bugatti.Volkswagen owns Audi.Ford owns Jaguar.Toyota owns Lexus.Volkswagen owns Lamborghini.Volkswagen owns Skoda.And brands do not compete with them, just different products, for different customers and different prices.
HelloToe: The problem I have with this sort of design is that even if you shrink the body of an FF down to a smaller size, you're still stuck with large FF lens sizes. If size is really what matters, APS-C or MFT still makes more sense. (And if size doesn't matter, why bother with a new system?)
Is this really a happy medium for anyone?
You can put a FF sensor on APS-C body.You cannot put a FF sensor on M43 body.So, M43 make sense indeed. APS-C don't, except maybe, for some serious compact cameras.
I doubt. If so, Olympus come with FF body, we got again the lens size problem. Olympus/Panasonic don't want compete with FF category, at least it seems to me, they are developing and growing around the M43, if they can dominate this segment, why they will enter the territory of CaNikonSony? Do not say impossible, but unlikely.
dylanbarnhart: Sony fragmentation continues. Just when you thought the Alpha was great, Sony tells you the SLT is better. Then the NEX came a long with even better image quality in smaller size. Then scratch that, full frame NEX is here. Oh and lenses you bought don't work now. If you're sick of buying lenses, then the RX superzoom is for you. Actually who needs a camera anyways, since we're all using camera phones nowadays. So scratch that and buy the QX lens camera instead. All you really sacrify is image quality.
But really, no matter what lenses you buy today, they won't work for yet another Sony system to be announced tomorrow. But don't worry, there will be adapters.
I thought Sony learned a lesson from their TV days. Guess not.
As the 4/3 and M4/3 lens all work on the same body of the E-M1.
Digitall: kudos to Sony by break the technical barriers and mythological until now many manufacturers never dared to break.About this model, well..., ugly like a hell. The RX1 body adapted with Lego parts results in a design aberration, imo.
Now we got a nice FF ILC camera size, but, the lens still heavy, big, but this is a tec. compromise of FF.
We gained weight and body size, but the lenses remain set screw...
Weight vs size vs handling the M43 is the most logical. Mainly due to the design of the lens.
I like the RX1 design, simple, clear, clever. But the idea behind of this A7 absorving the RX1 model, but worse is patently visible,with several bumps that do not bind to each other.I did not say a engineering aberration technically speaking,at least on paper, that is not the case, simply by design, I was pretty explicit.Of course the M43 makes sense, we can not look only for the M43 line of Olympus OMD eg., Olympus itself has cameras very far smaller than the OMD and take the same lens system, something that is impossible in FF. Maybe a fair comparation, we can compare a Pro FF DSLR to a Pro M43, like a OMD E-M1 vs Nikon D4/D800 or Canon 5D MKIII or 1DX talking about size.On M43 you have x-treme small bodies and Pro bodies, more clearly large, but everyone has one thing in common, they all lead the same lens system.

If Sony put 1″ sensor on all bridge cameras, they win again.
And I delete so many supposed artworks for trash bin...I have to be more selective.
Ken Rocket: no camera specs? :)
I think it's an Iphone
Take care of the planet, as we only have this to live. Beautiful pictures indeed.
