marc petzold: If i could afford it, my choice would be crystal clear: a Leica Type 60 Ltd. Edtion with the 35/1.4 - digital, but reduced to the Maximum, basically a Leica M-P which handles like a classical M3. I'm quite sure, if Henri Cartier-Bresson would still live today - he'd choose the Leica 60....just the basics, no frills, no gimmicks.
And for the "Pentax K3" Shouters/Lover always on DPR - Ricoh (Pentax) would release a Full Frame Camera in 2015 - according to latest rumors. ;)
Sadly, indeed you're right...but when the Leica 60 would have been avialable into HCB's big heydays...i'd think so.
marc petzold: The tech specs are impressive - especially the AF system, not only 15fps with af tracking at full 28MP resolution, but also it can go down to -4 EV, from what ive seen into the NX1 video.
Sony A6000? Nice...but the NX1 is so much better...a DSLM never have been that fast yet, even faster then Canons EOS 1D X with 12fps...can't wait for the dpreview test...competition is always great, for further developments and price reduction...and by the way: cheaper as the panasonic Lumix GH4, and *if* the video quality is equal in 4k...we have another winner here... ;)
I don't need it myself, of course.these 15fps...but a sports shooter might see the whole story way different. ;)
You got something wrong, bro - even my V1 does 60fps, but the important thing is: it's *not* an APS-C sensor, it's hereby a 1 inch from aptina - understood it yet? ;) So for APS-C, which the NX1 is, the 15fps with AF tracking are setting a new record, period. And by the way, for all the always Nikon 1 haters here on DPR - i do like my Nikon 1 V1 very much, it does make decent pictures with the 18.5/1.8 prime.
JaimeA: Reading the specifications we found out that this camera has NO image stabilization. Totally nuts if you like closeups, interior and night shots.
My post was a bit sarcastic from meaning - i don't need IS at all,with primes and short zooms either way. ;)
I've checked...from my Cameras only the old Lumix G1 with it's 14-45 Vario G Lens from 2008 does have IS onto the Lens here...all others not...and i don't miss IS anyway. Like Mike said, a steady hand, higher shutterspeed or sometimes a tripod does help well. ;)

happycyclist: I'd rather it didn't have a built in EVF. I would so much rather have the EVF be an accessory; that way the choice is mine to use it or not. Generally, with a camera like this I wouldn't use an EVF. I do believe I will be buying this one...the lens seals the deal depending on how awesome it is and if it gives that Leica look.
But only with JPEGs, the raw picture quality should be the same....that was back the same story in 2004 with the LC1/Digilux 2 already...
One Advantage: it's very cute design, but the rest of the specs, well...it'sa typical 35mm equivalent prime lens camera....i would say, the Fujifilm X100 series is a lot cheaper, and do have the hybrid viewfinder (OVF, EVF) into one package...the new X Leica does have a red dot, and no EVF..neither a OVF design...well....why couldn't Leica even for that ridiculous price include a simple EVF, let's say 1.44 MPx, at least? Framing your composition into direct sunlight, just with a display is often quite a mess. I hope Leica did their homework, and the lens is quite good - not just "electronically corrected" like some T-System Leica....
TEBnewyork: Digilux2/LC1 was one of my favorite ever cameras. So, when the rumors started flowing about this camera I got excited. Love the aperture on the lens. Yeah I wish the lens were a bit longer but I like keeping it small. Looking forward to getting one....already placed a pre-order.
Had the RX100 for a little while....hated using it.
So do I...just love my LC-1 for the lens, it really made a difference, back into it's heydays...the RX100 got it all started into today's life....premium P&S compactswith 1 inch sensor, congrats to Sony for that - otherwise we'd have stuck yet with just 1/1.7" sensors, and there won't be a LX100 yet, then...as Sony Competition. :)
Adrian Van: While this new camera might not be considered a true successor to the D700 in body build quality like D810, however many will think it is an upgrade to D700 as it has many of the D810 features - back screen same type and resolution, same video at 1080 60P, and power aperature control for video and tilt screen, most features but expect body of D810 and a CF slot.
However raw files now full frame at 24MP for smaller files in a pro/semipro body, and faster workflow for heavy shooters, and the top AF system and 6.5fps, at a $2299 body price (much lower than D810) and not too much more than a D610 which is good.
With limited high quality Nikon DX lenses (only a few), and lots of great FX lenses, including primes not too expensive, this could be the camera to get for upgraders from D700 or D300. Or a second camera to your existing D700 or D810. Pros need 2 for backup purposes anyway. And enthusiasts have a better choice then D610 now for a very modest increase in price. I say worth it.
Given the fact, that the machine which did the D700 body design is long paid and a written-off asset, they could have had done it that way.... perhaps i'd just want a bit too much into a well designed body. ;)
marc petzold: 1. No EVF2. No Handgrip (LX100 alike) same goes for RX100 I - III w/o AddOn Grip3. No Filterthread (-no buy!)4. No XAVC S Codec with 50Mps like Sony, therefore lower Videoquality5. No 4K Recording (optional, the LX100 does it)
To sum it up, an Epic fail - just a "me too" product, sorry Canon - back in 2012 that product would have been sold like hotcakes, and compete well with the RX100 Mark I...but it's Fall 2014 now.
lol @Joseph.@Naveed - of course it'lll sell, but i think not so well like the RX100 III, for many people, a EVF is really useful & needed.
Nikon, where is the P8000 with 1" Sensor to join the group, err...competition? ;)
robbo d: Very interested to see how this reviews.From a tech point of view, the sensor, apart from cramming more mp's into them, nothing seems to have bettered the 16mp Sony sensor yet.... It seems we have reached a plateau and grabbing at straws. Bravo to Samsung for doing this, Pentax should have retained a deal with them, because the synergy would have worked well. Seems to be a safe game going on everywhere else.
28 MPx onto a BSI APS-C x1.5 Cropfactor Sensor means still larger Pixels in um then 20 MPx onto the 1 inch x2.7 Cropfactor Sony BSI Sensor.
Koemans: I am going to be honest here, i did troll early today commenting on how canon is 4 years behind its peers, how the sensor is inferior with its 20.2 megapixel etc.
Funny how some people still comment on it..
Lets look at the facts : -99% of your clients dont print stuff larger than your wall.
-20.2 megapixel is not worse than 28 megapixel. 28 megapixel is only for geeks and gear fagotery. Lets be honest : does 28 megapixel really make your image better than 20.2 on your personal website, flickr and facebook? Lets say, ALL OF THE photographers i personally know only publish digitally, with the exception of a few who do weddingphotography. 28 megapixel does mean not **** on a 30x40cm photoalbum.
-ALL OF YOUR non-professional clients will not notice ANYTHING in dynamic range lacking behind, only professionals and companies. Funny thing is, most people who comment here are hobby photographers and dont earn a living with it.
Samsung got already some decent NX lenses, and now "S" class "pro" zooms, the 16-50/2-2.8, and the all new 50-150/2.8 zoom, both are not cheap ones, dust & splash-proof.
The Canon SX60 HS really shot down the bird - the focal length covers more than a usual amateur telescope...and with a 1/2.3" sensor size...i'm asking myself, which kind of ppl buying 50x, now 65x zoom bridgecams with very small & inferior sensor? jesus...
wassim al malak: NIKON d750 and CANON 7d II announced in 48 hours. what would you prefer ? d750 : FF for all uses .7d II : APS-c aimed for sprots and action .
it is not about brand or prices , it's about your needs .
@wassimi think the NX1 will be much better than the 7D II, both from AF & IQ department - it maybe perhaps a game changer for DSLM, just the same like the A7 series was/is for fullframe since last year...
jeminijoseph, are you using the infamous kitlens with your A6000?
beavertown: This shows Canon will always be ahead of Nikon.
Sad for no competition.
That was a good laugh into the morning, thanks! :-)
Mihut Ovidiu: Except for the battery life and the included GPS, on paper, nothing makes the Canon 7D II more attractive than the Sony A77 II. On the contrary.http://www.cameraegg.org/canon-7d-mark-ii-vs-nikon-d7100-vs-sony-a77-ii-specs-comparison/
In your dreams @lensberg ..both Nikon & Sony are cleaning the House with the inferior 7D II sensor tech....
just right....but if you compare 10fps vs 15fps, 50% more...the chance that the AF system misses the shot, is quite less with the NX1.
