sempull tampush: For Christ's sake, Nikon, stop it already!!!
looking great... nice, but not enough for me, unfortunatelyif V5 gets the EVF back (a decent one) and a fast zoom lens (not this over and over repeated tenorsomething-to-thirtyorsomething-threepointfive-to-fivepointsix joke), well then they'll have my attention (and I'd dare to say I'm not the only one feeling this way); this way they're just being ridiculous...
For Christ's sake, Nikon, stop it already!!!
jeffinchiangmai1: What is often overlooked when talking about pixels or loss of pixels (as in the LX100) is that the the number of pixels is roughly the square of the sides e.g. 16 mega pixels could roughly equate to 4 x 4 mega pixels.If you reduce 16 down to 12, that's a loss of 25% actual pixels..However, this only equates to about 13% loss on the sides of the 4 x 4 square.Is this such a loss in quality that it first seems?
"you will probably find yourself cropping a lot of images to "zoom in" a bit more"
No you won't if you know WHY you want this camera in the first place...
sempull tampush: The world needs more LX100ish cameras, not yet another wannabe stylish piece of crap like this... JMO.
"Bet Olympus is working on that, and it will be announced as a replacement for the XZ2."

princewolf: Yet another 1/2.3'' tiny sensor camera...
The question is: WHY would anyone do something like this? ;)
Oh, what a piece of Schott...
Petroglyph: Looks like a nice lens. The excellent, but discontinued, SIgma 50-150 weighs 1350 g. (What does Sigma put in those lenses?) If this new one has as good IQ as the Sigma one, Fuji shooters should be happy campers. Nearly a Kilogram is not too bad IMO. Carry around the, recently leaked, Sigma 150-600 at 3850 g. for a few days and this one will feel like a feather. If you want high IQ and compact/light get the Pentax 50-135 f/2.8 weighing in at 685 grams. Course you'd have to stick a 816 gram K3 or similar on the back of it. The Pentax has better coatings and fully WR and performs a bit better than its Tokina cousin according to many. I bet this new 50-140 turns out to be a very good lens for Fuji shooters.
@robbo d - ah, i see :)
The same "Pentax has better coatings" story over and over again. Statements based on... ?
So, an "info" button and an "i" button... what the duck?!
Sigma 18-35mm Very good image quality but:
- a very restricted focal range - weight of 810g (!)- and bigger than the 18-300
Sorry, but not for me.
seems to me you don't have a clue...
Deutsch: Now if they could do a full-frame mirror less, like the A7R, I'd get one.
Not with current Nikon pricing policy ;)
Wahl: Now, if all of you who want an FX sensor, please line up at the Sony A7 stand, and the APS-C folks at the Fuji and Sony APS-C desks, all with their huge and heavy lenses, thank you. For the rest, come with us and enjoy this wonderful system: really small lenses, an extremely wide range (6.7 to 300 mm within the 1 system, nearly unlimited with the ft1-adapter), a sensor of perfect quality, and now finally a real user interface. I love this system, although my main camera is a D800, one of my V1 is with me most of the time. Kudos to Nikon that they started this system, not an alternativ to my dslr, but an addition. And regarding costs: you get what you pay for. Not Sony, but Nikon quality.
Tell me more about the Nikon quality, please...*sigh*
BuckarooBanzai: Nikon's strategy is confusing. I know they don't want mirrorless sales to encroach on their DSLR sales when they price their new mirrorless kit higher than all their other DSLR kits except the D7100 (which can be purchased for $96 more on Amazon in the US).
@pwilly: Yes! 20FPS, which is great for... ?
samfan: I really have to try this thing someday. It's like one of those keychain cameras or other funny toy cameras which are so insane you just have to try them.
But I'm also thinking, maybe Samsung had some particular use in mind for this sort of camera. I can't imagine it, but maybe there is something. Because really, Samsung isn't a company which just throws random things at the wall to see what sticks. Look at the NX lenses (very practical lineup). So far, their most crazy camera was the one with the LCD on the front and that one sold like hotcakes.
I also do like vertical grips, and who says you can't have one on a small sensor camera. Maybe there actually is demand for it.
I never really understood why the pro DSLRs have to have integral vertical grips since this wasn't a thing before Nikon F5. Somehow it's now a pro feature even though it doesn't really make that much sense.
@HowaboutRAW: Yes, that's a valid point.
@HowaboutRAW: only few people know the image quality of this cam ATM. However, judging by sensor size and resolution, i think it's safe to make an educated guess here. But who knows, maybe they learnt at Samsung to bend the laws of physics ;)
Ed B: Wow! What is Nikon thinking?
I know I'm just repeating what others have said but $1100.00 for a fixed 28 mm 2.8 lens just isn't going to be a big seller.
28mm F/4, actually...
Ulfric M Douglas: That optical viewfinder is beautiful.
Yeah. Fourhundredandfiftybucks beautiful.
sempull tampush: Interesting specs.Wonder whether the card slots door is as crappy as on its predecessor and other Nikons...
@Timmbits - this IS a possibility, of course :)
pulling them out of my camera bag for instance... :D (pulling a camera out of the bag with lens facing downwards is a real pain in the behind if the door is loose like this)
