All those sample pics and no low-light images. That has been the Achilles Heel of the Lumix line. But seeing they used the GH4's sensor in this, it would've been nice to see some pics to compare this cam with my FZ200.

Charlie46227: While I agree with BM that the resolution is very low, I would also agree that you have to look at it like the Polaroids of yesteryear. They were NEVER about image quality. Also, I remember when the first consumer digital cameras came out. Their image quality left a lot to be desired too But look at them now! (you gotta start somewhere). If these cameras get us to the next level (as did the first digital cameras), then more power to Lytro. I suspect when the chips become twice as dense and processing speed quadruples, the camera will be ready for primetime. So, I guess I agree that AT THIS POINT, the camera is just a 'toy'. But that's ok ! At least it is for some people.

Also, perspective shift is NOT the same as done with Photomerge.

A pricey, oddly-shaped toy at that.

And sorry, but image and resolution IS everything when it comes to cameras. This camera takes a tiny step forward in regards to the gimmicky post-altering of focal points, but 2 steps back in image quality.

Spectacle99: Prices I'm seeing for this look like they're going to be in the seriously expensive range. $1299 for the body alone, according to Amazon. Other stories indicating that the standard bundle will be with the very nice 35-100mm lens, and that the package will be around $2000. Wow.

Edit: Although, now I look at it, if the body goes for $1299, I'd be surprised if the bundle is as low as $2000, since the two weathersealed, high quality Lumix lenses are about $1400-$1500 each. So maybe more like $2200? This is, of course, just a guess.

I wouldn't say $1299 for the body was 'seriously' expensive. Besides, that's MSRP. No doubt we'll see it at $999 or lower after a while.

I always thought the GH1/2 were TOO small to handle. So the increase in size is a GOOD thing, IMO.
