Beckler8: Consider this a poor man's RX10. Constant f/2.8 is nice. But personally I can't consider larger cameras like this that don't have 4K - something that will very soon be as standard as 1080p.
Blue-ray wasn't standard as a storage medium not as a video format. It was killed by high-speed internet, HD-streaming and flash-disks. Nobody wants 50-Gb write-once media, especially when we have 128 Gb flash and SD, Dropbox, Flickr, OneDrive, Google disk, etc.
I've managed to buy a new NX30 body with 50-200 tele lens as a gift for 510 USD here in Czech republic (Do not need a kit lens, a I have one already). Feature- and IQ-wise it is far beyond the concurrence (comparable OM-D E-M10 and a6000 are pricier).
MikeF4Black: Interesting selection. For Ukraine though, I feel Maidan Square as a subject has been overdone and is now out of date. Much more interesting would be images from Eastern Ukraine, where the fighting continues, or the Crim when it was annexated by Russia.
Seeing happy Crimean people is not so "interesting" as looking at pain, poverty and suffer.
Vignes: only 144 comments and it's day 2. when the A7II was posted, the count was in hundreds and it hit 1000 mark within day2. This is the problem with Samsung brand, maybe they need to change their camera name to something else. Similar to Toyota with Lexus name. At the end of the day, it's all marketing and how you portray yourself in a particular market space.
I really like that situation around Samsung's cameras because I plan to buy NX1 substantially cheaper than today. What's not good for Samsung is good for his customers.
stanislaff: I have and still use two Olympus DSLR and one Pro lens - 14-54 II. I was waiting for E-M1 to be sure that I would use my 14-54 while having an up-to-date sensor. Regarding the huge price of E-M1 and the absence of cheaper alternatives able to use fully my main lens I realize, that I will never switch to u4/3, cause price-wise and IQ-wise there are a lot of better solutions, then invest into pro lenses and bodies from Olympus. Size and weight is not an issue for me, moreover I already have Samsung NX1000 as a travel camera, so I decide to buy a FF DSLR in the near future. The prices of E-M1, pro 7-14, 12-40 and 40-150 are just prohibitively high.
@bluevelletIn fact, I am desperately waiting for such a camera, as I understand, that the comparable lenses will be far from cheap.
@MartyHere, in Czech republic, the E-M1 body lowest price is 36 000 crowns, while Sony Alpha A7 can be found for 33 000 crowns. Both Canon 6D and Nikon D610 are from 39 000 crown.So, yes, in Europe Olympus E-M1 is overpriced.Why should I buy E-M1 including MMF-3 to be able utilize my 14-54 for 41 000 crowns, when I can have FF Sony with 28-70 for 43 000 crowns?
Don't get me wrong, I think, that Olympus is a a must for newcomers, for those who switches from compact cameras with tiny sensors. But for the owners of Oly DSLRs who want to improve IQ and step up to the higher league there is only one way - way to E-M1, cause it's the only camera able to utilize 4/3 lenses. However the price of E-M1 is dangerously close to that of FF, which will bring highest image quality in most circumstances.I just like to encompass, that in fact u4/3 and 4/3 systems are two totally different systems which share only the same sensor size, and if one wants to upgrade from 4/3, the u4/3 system is just yet another candidate among the others, and maybe not the best one IQ-wise or price-wise.

Looked at all samples carefully. Although I'm a big fan of Olympus I should confess, that Canon is way better in IQ. Anyway, I'd rather buy old, big and ugly Olympus E-1 with 5 Mp noisy sensor or any other old waterproof DSLR than these cameras. IQ is just horrible with Canon being a tad less horrible.
Maybe first rugged, but definitely second waterproof. The first was OM-D E-M1.
straylightrun: $799? Eh... I think they forgot the extra 1?
$7991 would be too much, wouldn't it?
stanislaff: So, in fact this is a 1.2 Mp display, not 3.6. Just running in 120 Hz, which corresponds to 40 Hz for full-color image.
Thank you for explaining in details my thoughts :)

Not far from reality, though :)
"According to our exhaustive research, Asuka is 'a girl who seeks to put herself above all others'. So now you know. "
Awesome! It made my day!
I would like to see the test of RawTherapee
Totally free RawTherapee is still better. At least for its price :)
They rather should invent something like "digital film", which will fit every Leica. I mean two "film rolls" with a sensor in-between.
Way too disproportional dimensions/shapes.
