In reply to:

GarysInSoCal: The Nikon D5300 blows this piece of crap away at a lower price... with more resolution, a better low noise rating, stronger dynamic range, a bigger selection of lenses and TTL flashes.

And this is based on what information? Oh none

Jogger: Is that bolt even functional or is it a sticker like the red dot?

On film M's it was used to adjust the RF. Could serve the same function here

mpgxsvcd: Serious Question. How many of you shoot Medium Format or would switch to Medium Format if the right camera body was produced?

I shoot MF currently.

How does this affect current CC subscribers?

In reply to:

DDWD10: I love my original Q... it's a shame the Q10/Q7 has gone all-plastic. Bleh. The solid magnesium build of the Q was one of the things that made it feel so "special" to use.

Having actually held one I can tell you it still is a great metal body

RFC1925: Looks like a winner. Hopefully we'll get a proper review this time.

I wonder what's next in the Ricoh pipeline. An updated GXR body would be great.

Actually I think the GXR body is fine. They just need a new M Module

doctorbza: You mention that the Canon & Nikon counterparts are weather sealed. The Canon 35mm f1.4 is not weather sealed.

The Canon 35/1.4 L is weather sealed. All L series lenses are

And folks complain about Leica's cameras! So basically a rebadged NEX-7 for about the price of a Leica M and about a $500 more than the M-E, both of which are Full Frame units.

While I am not usually one to complain nor really much of a gearhead, even I have to scratch my head at this. While folks complain that Leica is trying to cash in on their name, this is definitely a case of that.

Nathaniel George Weir: fixed lens... I don't even know what to say about that...

How about saying "Damn! Finally a Digital Hexar!" If you are so much of a fauxtographer that you need a zoom then don't buy it and go make your fauxtographs with something else.

The actual photographers that will use this are dancing for joy

tommy leong: i like the idea
BUT not the price....

SONY you can't keep coming with great ideas
and poor execution.
EVENTUALLY, you will run out of steam

We are discussing a Full Frame camera with a Zeiss 35/2 lens right? Last time I checked before this camera that was a bit more than the $2,800 Sony is asking

miwo76: I always found it weird that m43 lenses have updateable firmware. I bet this will be fixed by a firmware update to the 20mm f/1.7.

Doubtful. The 20/1.7 is a Panasonic product, and they have no real incentive to help Olympus out here. The lens probably performs like gang buster on a Lumix body BTW. No this will require Olympus to come up with a solution

Most likely an APS-C version of the M with a rangefinder system seen recently on the M9 Titan. Possibly some plastics involved to make it more affordable, but I doubt it highly. Guessing it will come in at say 3000-4000 USD.
