KonstantinosK: Although this must be a great camera, it's also a bit of a let down. I really hoped for a 1" sensor in a more pocketable package to directly compete with the RX100, offer an alternative and help draw the prices down. Now it seems that the RX100 is still left without competition in the pocketable camera segment.
You need to be looking at the Canon G7 X. This is a different market segment. The Canon first impression review was really good on usability, unlike the Sony.If you want something just like the Sony but cheaper get the Sony version 1 or 2.
The online photographer did an article about old Kodachrome
This site sells prints of hundreds of 4x5" format of Kodachrome color photos, and other library of congress pictures:
Good for Olympus, there is no such thing as bad publicity. Especially publicity that costs you nothing.
Joesiv: Seems strange why would someone spending 10's if not 100's of thousands of dollars on a camera (from what I gather these are priced in the market of arri and such) for a camera body just to put consumer grade lens' on it? Seems strange. C-mount, PL-mount, even EOS seem more in relavant.
While I welcome them to the fold, it just seems odd.
Oh well, hopefully panasonic's new x series lens' offer something worthy of thier cameras.
The SHG 4/3 lenses are good lenses for video. 14-35mm, 35-100mm 150mm are all up to it.
Simon97: I was wondering if anyone was ever going to put a sensor in a manual style SLR body. Sounds interesting if not a niche product.
Epson Seiko and Voightmander's parent company made the R-D1. Manual lever between shots. Mine still works well.
yukonchris: After watching and waiting for someone, for anyone really, to design a sensible high quality digital camera, I think Fuji finally has. I'm not sure why no one else thought to build a solid simple design with the aperture stops where they are supposed to be (on the lens), and a direct shutter speed dial on the body. They even thought to add a threaded shutter release button so traditional photographers can use a cable release!
Fuj's admonition that the new sensor produces more of a film like image is just that much better! Reports of higher dynamic range and better image detail than some larger sensor cameras is also incredibly good news! This is the first semi-pro/pro level digital camera I've seen in years that has me really excited about buying into a new system.
First impressions suggest it offers the right balance of features, controls, and functionality. As long as the IQ is as good as promised, I think I've found my next system. Sorry Olympus, I waited as long as I could...
Epson RD-1 is a sweet camera that sells for less than the Fuji and meets all your standards. Sensor is the same as the Nikon D100. Good enough for normal prints. It does really good B&W jps.
Thanks for the information. I will have to try the red channel technique.

Floral patterned Nikon camera and lens to be released by Christmas
Nikon have always made SLR's I like and want. I have never been interested in any of their small cameras. They are like Microsoft dominant at one thing and suck at the rest. This camera is like a Zune mp3 player released into a market full of Ipods
Is there a chance to test this lens on a 5N? Thank you.
I live in northern Canada and I have the Olympus E-3 and E-5. Cold performance has been great. Below -20c blowing snow is very powdery it works it's way into all of the seams. The cameras have never had a problem with cold or moisture. The sensor has shut down in summer due to overheating. Extended live view use on a hot August day can be a problem.
Can we have this on forum posts? I would even like a dislike button on forum posts. One forum I was on automatically hid a comment if it received too many dislikes.
