who is this camera for? nothing comes to mind so far....
buda1065: Impressive camera and it should be for the price. But where is the digital equivalent of the Contax G with its Biogon, Sonnar and Planar lenses? That should have been the NEX series, hopefully it will be the RX series. At least they hit a home run with the RX100.
digital equivalent of the camera that utilizes Sonnar, Planar and Biogon is called Leia M8 / M9
I don't get it. 5 out of 10 for raw image quality and it qualifies for gold award?
I'm sorry, but who needs this?
maxnimo: I'm confused by all the "ugly" comments. Is this camera supposed to be framed and hung on a gallery wall next to Mona Lisa?
Beauty & ugliness, why not?
Ciriacus: Not another preview, we want at least some of the missing full reviews!!
no need for any reviews. D600 is not worth it. Read the one for D7000 , same thing but full frame. Same lifeless & washed colors.
ugly as hell!
mauro paillex: I agree!! Just stupid people need a Leica to take great pictures!! I use my iphone 4s also for my professional works and i'm a professional photographer!! No one has never been disappointed!!Mauro from Italy!
"stupid" people need to buy a Leica to take great pictures because "stupid" people can tell the difference between iphone & M9. If you don't - keep your 4s as a professional tool and good luck with your "photo" business. Just trying to imagine your "clients"
No leica profile , neither fuji x pro 1... who needs this junk?
HowaboutRAW: Still no Leica M9--no it's DNG files don't simply open with DXO, and then no Samsung NX series support.
the same issue here. they have no respect for M9! Loaded trial version for 10 minutes and removed it so nothing would remind me of this $hit.
Benarm: Without actual samples these DxO scores are pretty useless. Hopefully they will provide something like DPR's studio comparison photos.
agree 100% I don't care how DxO measures the sensor I look at my shots and I can see if it's good or bad. Never trusted DxO much.
photonius: anybody buying these cameras?
Fuji does not have to refine their crappy cameras because you buy it no matter what. Unreliable focus, slow AF speed, "rangefinder" optical viewfinder which doesn't represent the actual frame. That's ridiculous the way the focus mark is moving around depending on distance to object. Fuji is experimenting new ideas which is great but you should not be victims trying to go around those quirks waiting for the next firmware that Fuji "kindly" provide one year later. If the purchasers were more demanding , Fuji wouldn't let themselves put your money to their pocket until they get all the bugs sorted out.
pgphoto_ca: For me...it's a very good combination.
Smaller than the D800 (and my D3S) for hiking....great !The D800....36mp is to much.......24mp is just right....great!But a bit slow at 5.5 fps....not so great!The 1/8000 sec missing is not a deal breaker......how often we use 1/8000 sec....If the image quality is approx equal to the D800 ...including DR et Noise....that will be great! Let's wait for good sample image before ordering one.I also hope the video will be sharper then the D4.....but the D600 with clean HDMI also...it's great!Please....no bug for this one...like on the D800 focus issue....:)
you will need 1/8000 when using 1.4 aperture lens outdoors. It's a big downside to me.
canon just spit right into customers face.
how come pentax has not applied for chapter 11 yet?
16x zoom for $229. Wow! Why did I buy Sony RX100 if I could have bought 3 of these for the same money :)
Canon, how about making something useful? Just trying to think who this camera is for..advanced enthusiasts or exhausted and retired pro's ? How about something like 5DII in rebel body and $999 price tag? I would say "thank you canon", but for this one? what a waste!
I can't get it. what exactly does this case do? It does not cover the camera. A piece of brown leather on p&s camera? What's the purpose. It does not make it prettier :)
nothing special. I expected more from canon.
