fatdeeman: I'm going to buy one of these dirst cheap in a few years I can just tell. Progress is slowing, this camera will age well.

I think in the apsc market that is very true and no matter what happens lthis will produce good results for years to come. Just need to be get one cheap enough and a good set of lens.

Unless it's mirrorless and has a clever mount that takes all the main manufacturers lenses, auto focus and shoots 12k with a spearical in camera image stabilisation and has a minimum of 200 mega pixels full frame and looks retro, I'm not interested 😂

Joe Ogiba: Smart idea of Ricoh using the older 36mp Sony sensor to keep the cost well under $2K. Too bad Pentax did not have 4K video mode with H.265 like the Samsung NX1 to increase sales but it looks like most Pentax users are not interested .

Ask most Pentaxians and we will nearly all say were not interested in Video or 4K, it's a nice feature but is not the most important thing we want. FF with high quality lenses.

AdamT: That`d be a handful of a lens on a 1DX or D4S let alone a tiny A7 - No IS and poor edges at F5.6 see --> http://2.static.img-dpreview.com/files/p/TS7952x5304~sample_galleries/4498841025/3708375403.jpg

SOMEONE needs to make a decent standard zoom for these cameras which can produce across the frame sharpness . C`mon Sigma, step up with an ART lens Please !

All a7 second generation cameras have in body 5 axis stabilisation

petr marek: I have mine already ...
NX1 and NX500 have really no competition in price/value/technology ...
Are some of the Samsung shareholders or top managers from rival companies to make such a brand damaging decision - give up when becoming respected leader in technology?

Bigger problem was they seem to restrict other 2nd party lens manufactures from making compatible lenses which stunted the systems growth.

The NX cameras were well made with good sensors and if you want to believe DX0 (DPReviews favourite site to quote it seems) they made some excellent lenses. I was hoping they would be sensible and sell that part of the company (Nikon made sense by having NX mount?) but even that hasn't happened total waste of time and money. A real Shame and has been mentioned will make over consumers of their products think twice, a very damaging excerise for their Image.

Matt1645f4: My first DSLR was the 30D and I loved it and was a great camera but Canons sensors just don't produce the goods. They have fallen so far behind they are going to take longer and longer to develop their next generation how long did customers have to put up with 18mp when 16mp from Pentax, Nikon and Sony were far better and I can't see anything in the 24mp I've looked at on flickr that would make me consider buying a Canon again.

I have no favourite brand but i do like good image quality.

@vscd No i was comparing full res images from various Canons 18-24mp from flickr with Sony, Nikon and Pentax cameras and the Canon images suck.

Not my images, i just dont think Canons Apsc sensors up to the job the FF ones do look better but are still not a match for Sony's.

When comparing similar images with same settings and similar lenses Canon don't have the same level of detail, to me they look smudged. It is down to personal preference but I can't see why I would go back when my Pentax K3 and Fuji XT1 look better.

PentaxNick: What about the Fujifilm X30? Larger 2/3" sensor, great quality to print up to A3, fast f2-2.8 28-112mm equivalent zoom, great EVF.

I did think the author was lacking a bit of knowledge as the Fuji X30 is a great camera I had the original X10 and has several A3 canvasses hanging around the house that my wife loves and ordered them without my knowledge and they look fabulous. People seem to quick to dismiss Fuji which shocks me especially when it's some one from DPR but also Dx0 have never reviewed an X-series camera which I find very annoying as this site is always quoting that website.

owenleve: Make this with a nikon mount...

Make it with everyones mount and it could steal a large chunk of the mirrorless market.

Link | Posted on Feb 23, 2016 at 18:58 UTC

Certainly one of the more interesting mirrorless cameras to be announced so far. Like the larger sensor but keeping Apsc could make this a good set up for wildlife shooters.
