I have the A7II but don't like it much (e.g. control, colors, AF speed). The A7RII seems a very advanced camera but is it much different to the A7II?
I would like the Sony RX1RII, but it is too expensive to me. Any chance there will be a non-R version? the mark I has the non-R version which is $500 cheaper.
zerlings: I am disappointed that it doesn't touchscreen and touch shutter. Sony could have easily installed it but they chose not to. I'm not looking for smartphone but this is a compact camera so it's supposed to be convenience and easy to use. I found touchscreen and touch shutter in the EM-5 and G7X tremendously useful. In my experience it is way faster and more accurate than other methods. Not to mention picture browsing, focus checking, manual selection etc...
I would agree if having touchscreen means sacrificing analog (e.g. Leica T) but there are many good cameras having both (EM-5).

the advent of G5x means the G7x series will never get an EVF
I like it. Cute!
For someone who wants a M-quality lens with autofocus on a FF body, this is the only option.
Nice! Maybe I won't wait for the A7III or RX-2 after all...
wonderful and unique shot!
I have the OMD-EM5 + Panasonic 24-70 lens, while I like it but it seems like the LX-100 beats this combo in everyway (slightly longer zoom, bigger aperture, smaller package, cheaper, wi-fi and built-in flash).
The AW120 maybe THE camera I want for scuba diving. I just got an open water scuba diving license and the deepest I have went is 20m so far. I hate those hardcase which is expensive, bulky and have to be taken on/off everytime.
gl2k: When it comes to low-light photography HTC One wipes the floor with all other contestants.
...and with a fast lens, preferrably f1.4 or larger
I have this lens and I love it!
It is small, tactile and super fast AF with the OM-D.I use the touchscreen as shutter and it auto-focuses almost instantaneously.
I think this lens is sharp, but because the bokeh is not very shallow (can't expect too much as it is a 17mm 1.8, not 45mm 1.8), the subject doesn't stand out as much and hence makes it look relatively less sharp.
marike6: I'd like to see Panasonic get rid of the ribbed, knurled focus ring. They are dust magnets. In three days, my new PL 25 1.4 had so much lint on the focus ring, it looked like a used lens. Even the 42.5 1.2 prototype seems covered in lint. The tight ribbing of the AF ring just collects it.
I couldn't agree more.
RXVGS: This lens will sell like hot cakes!
They will sell like hot pancakes!
I wish Polariod could stay in the niche area and produce instant print cameras.
They have the Z230 in the past which is a 10MP camera that allows instant print without ink. It doesn't have any zoom and the IQ couldn't compete with others but it is such a fun camera to use imagine going to a party.
Dpreview once said the scoring/award is a relative indicator.
Having used many P&S I truly think the RX-100 deserves a gold award in the P&S category.
I'm a 5D2 user planning to upgrade to 5D3.
I'm an amateur photographer so to me the small difference in image quality between 5D3 and D800 doesn't really matter to me.
However, there are 2 features in the D800 that I sorely miss in the Canon.
1) Built-in flash. To many professional it is under-powered and useless. But when I go to vacation and hiking I use fill-flash a lot. It is just a pain to have to bring a separate flash unit.
2) Crop factor change. D800 and D700 allows user to switch to DX mode (1.5x crop). I shoot a lot of birds and wildlife so this feature is very useful to me.
I would rather they update the Digilux 2.
Just put a new sensor, processor and a better LCD/EVF and they will have another big seller.
