JKPinPDX: One can only imagine what Sony has up its magic sleeve for the NEW A7s...Sony will finally give us APS-C guys reason to finally make "the jump" to FF!
Sony is on a flat out assault in this space! I can't imagine what Canon and Nikon executives are saying in their sales meetings! I would love to be a fly on the wall and hear what their strategy will be to answer Sony's recent assault.
@Lawn Lends - They kinda did if you're not printing posters. It's called the A7II.
Mike FL: Leica M makes FUJI lot of thinking for next X100 such as:
- Change the location of OVF/EVF switch?
- The aperture ring?
- Make the ON/OFF switch as ON/OFF-Driver mode combo?
- take the grip off (wait, it needs to ask Leica why M never has a grip)
- a BW edition?
FUJI's X100 team is getting headache for next X100's look.
OBI656: Fuji and Sony will pretty soon replace positions of Canon and Nikon in market place ...
I doubt it. Those with large investments in lens systems will just buy their mirrorless offerings, when they finally get around to switching to EVF.
I also doubt Fuji will EVER occupy either the 1st or 2nd positions.
"Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 compared to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10"
That's the funniest headline I've ever seen here!
I've owned several Panasonic cameras, and I own the Rx10.The only Panasonic product I have ever liked was a cordless telephone.Saying a Panasonic anything could even remotely compare to a Sony anything is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read here, and I've read a lot of nonsense.
The only reason I would even take this seriously is if I owned a Panasonic and didn't know any better.
Actually, back in the day Panasonic plasma displays and VCR's absolutely trounced the Sony's.
I'm not saying Sony is bad, I own Sony kit, including cameras, but your post is ridiculous.
iAPX: I don't understand why this one has not been rebranded Leica, I will die for it with a high-res viewfinder, a better creen on the back, and a better construction (says $2000 for all of that).
Ah and Audi design, and nice finish as the leica C!
All the rebranded Leicas have exactly the same build quality and features as their Panasonic counterparts. The only real difference is the price.
GeorgeP71: Panasonic will be the one to leave Nikon and Canon behind!
I have been a Nikon user since 1969. Today I look at the Panasonic great efforts and I am convinced that they are the ones Nikon and Canon should be worried about.
Their Gh3 and Gh4 and now this one is living proof.
Lab tests aside you get more bang for your buck with Panasonic everytime.
I have 3 Nikons and One Panasonic with a Leica Lens. And SIDE by SIDE the Leica lens outshines the Nikons.
Without telling us exactly what lenses you are comparing this is a pretty pointless post. You also don't mention what cameras, and therefore sensors, you are comparing.
Recept: Is body weather sealed? can't find anywhere. Was thinking of buying xt1, but will wait for sony reviews.
Jogger: Fuji is rumoured to be following Sony and releasing both a fixed lens FF camera (RX1/R competitor) and an FF ILC and lenses based on their existing mount. It will be interesting if they are able to extrans those sensors.
Rumoured by who? I have seen nothing credible. Also, it looks like Sony thought further ahead with their E-mount, making the throat big enough for FF. Measuring the throat on X-mount, it looks like Fuji didn't give themselves the room for FF. If Fuji do go FF, I fear it will be with a new mount.
WASBA: This camera is very special. Honestly I had used couple of p&s cameras because dslr is sometimes too heavy for casual uses. This is my p&s cameras.. X10, X100, Leica X1, and olympus, panasonic's ones, Canon S95, S100, Sigma DP2s etc.. Actually IQ is depends on its Image sensor size at least digital camera era.. That is true. Next Lens is very important element. To me my last 5 years, best p&s camera was Sigma dp2s. I don't care of its ugly design, heavy weight. IQ is just outstanding. Leica X1 is good but $2000 value? My answer is no. Leica X1 is just another panasonic's mirrorless lineup to me. Especially X1, X10, X100, dp2x is super slow cameras. With SDHC or XC memory card will help to improve writing speed but.. still way too slow. I am one of retro design fan so I just pre-ordered Fuji's X series but build quality is quiet poor(F) and User Interface design is not friendly(B).
That is a massive list of cameras you say you have experience of. I notice also you say you have a Ricoh GR in another post. Perhaps it's time to stop buying cameras and take some pictures? Perhaps upload a few so we can see the results from such a large collection?
Mloscalzo91: I mean, I don’t know how to feel about this. Are the productions and release date of these cameras really such a big deal that we have to lose sleep over it?
I could be completely clueless here and not thinking about this from a smarter point of view and if that is the case, someone please explain why this is a big deal when the flood is clearly going to do more damage than that to the camera industry.
@fad NASA and babies falling out of windows?
Yes... we should be more concerned about flood victims than a delay in our next camera purchase... but your pretentious post borders on the insane
