I love this picture. Really special. Congrats.
justmeMN: US$800 for no viewfinder and a sensor that's smaller than APS-C is a tough sell.
US$1,100 for the camera plus a viewfinder is a tougher sell.
a6000 but with a crappy kit lens......
Is it made in Japan or China like E-M5?
macky patalinghug: FF?I know many will vehemently react to this question.It's just a poor guess so please don't get angry.
Revenant. Where did you hear/read about the fixed lens compact? I would be interested to know more. I am waiting for a fixed lens compact with a big sensor (micro 4/3 or larger) basic zoom (for example 28-90) and with some macro ability for years. Canon G1X was close besides the terrible macro.
Gully Foyle: If they can do an μ4/3 that small, why not a fixed lens one? I can hardly imagine the average buyer of this getting a second lens. BTW, a fixed prime on an μ4/3 would be very interesting.
I would prefer a fixed lense camera with a basic zoom and a little faster aperture then this kit lense and with a good macro. In fact, I am waiting for this kind of camera for couple of years now.
rhlpetrus: Why can't Nikon put a 1 sensor in this body?
I would not be so sure that it won't fit.
I believe this could be a bestseller if they have a good marketing. For example David Hasselhoff would be a great official face for this product.
CameraLabTester: The EOS M is sadly in "No Man's Land" right now...
It has the same fate as the Nikon "1" system.
Both Canon and Nikon have just over saturated the Market Segment and they have just sailed right into the Sargaso Sea.
It has the same fate as the Nikon 1 system? Really? I am not a fan of this system either, but it seems that Nikon 1 is selling good. You can not say that about EOS M.
Saint Yves: "The X20's sensor is half the size of that found in the (more expensive) Sony RX100, but it's about half as large again as the Canon G15's."
shoudn't that be "twice as large as canon G15" ?
Which part of America do you exatly mean? Perhaps Mexico or Brazil?
