supeyugin1: No touchscreen, no Amoled screen, no BSI sensor for $1000?!Thanks, but no, thanks.
I think there is no weather sealing.

Big Richard: In FY 2013 Sony sold 11.5 million cameras. In FY2015Sony forecasts only 6.1 million cameras. 47% drop.
I wonder how long Sony will stick with Cybershot and APSC? The sensor business thanks mostly to Apple and Nikon is the reason for the profits along with FF mirrorless where there is no competition.
Sony is making money and needs to stick with their profitable core: Sensors, professional video and FF mirrorless. Cybershot and NEX are the boat anchors holding them back from making higher profits. Now I see why last years A6000 replacement was cancelled, and there hasn't been a new apsc lens for 2 1/2 years.
After that they will bury their FF mirrorless, cause it'll be unable to stand against Canikon.
supeyugin1: A speech full of lies and inconsistencies. She blames US embargo and Russia pulling out, but nothing about communist regime. She should have visited Soviet union in 80-ies, which pulled out of Cuba in 1991 (and not in 1999),to see the same thing.She is blaming everything, but the real cause of the problem. She should visit North Korea as well to see similarities and make a conclusion.
Yeah, and those poor peasants. Russia pulled out and left them without fertilizer. Russia pulled out because Soviet Union ended in 1991. No more free fertilizer. You want fertilizer - pay for it. Russia will happily sell you any fertilizer they have. The problem is - they don't want to pay, they want it for free. You can't pay - make your own fertilizer. That simple!
I've been there in 2004 with big Canon camera and multiple lenses, nobody told me anything, took all the pictures I wanted with no problem.Yeah, it's definitely US, Russia and Trump are the reasons that Cuba is so poor.And Castro? Oh, yes, Castro is just in the background...

supeyugin1: I compared GR II in a studio scene, with Samsung NX500, and IMHO Samsung beats GR, except in the corners. Not sure which lens they were using on Samsung, but most Samsung lenses are excellent, and most likely match GR. Of course GR is smaller than Samsung with 20/2.8 pancake mounted.
NX500 and Mini still work for me. Excellent cameras BTW.And Mini only costed me $210 with a kit zoom. Can't complain!
You can now buy one for ~ $600. Also on NX mini?
I also compared Samsung NX mini with GR II, and IMHO it also matches or beats GR, and with 9mm f/3.5 also matches the size of GR.

D135ima: Теперь "Лейку" можно утопить в лейке.
No, it's Leica and watering can are the same word in Russian. So you can drown Leica in a leica.
This is very weird flash location for underwater photography. You will get a lot of backscatter. Apparently Leica didn't hire underwater expert when designing this camera. Also not good for macro with 20cm close focus. And 35mm equivalent is not very useful underwater either. They should have gone with 24mm or wider.
sh10453: Where on earth is Nokia? Brain dead? They made dreams come true: A 41 mp camera, a GPS, and a phone, all in one handy piece of hardware, and now Panasonic comes with this??Instead of adding/integrating more functionality they take the phone away now?
My pockets are running out of room. I thought carrying multiple units was a thing of the past.This is a step backwards, and, judging by the limited monthly production, Panasonic already has a feeling it won't sell very well. Could it be that they are just testing the market, especially that it is only for Japan?
I think an LF-2 (with some needed improvements) would have been a better idea.Aside from that, pricing is too optimistic.
Nokia killed themselves by switching to Windows instead of Android. Really stupid move. Then, MS bought them, and installed Windows again. They have good hardware, but no apps, that's a main problem. I tried Nokia 1020 with Windows 10 for a week. It's not usable as a smartphone.
sh10453: I think it would have been more logical if this WERE an update to the CM1. Something like this:
20MP 1-inch CMOS sensor F2.0 aperture (Leica lens) 24-135mm equivalent focal length ISO 80-25,600 4K-video Raw capture 3.0MP front camera 5.0-inch 1080p display (or better) Android 5.x XXX octa-core processor 4GB RAM 16, 32, 64GB memory options microSD cards up to 128GB 3200mAh battery
something like f2-5.6? Yes this will be smaller.
Photato: It is like a super tiny Tablet with Cellular Modem that takes great pictures.However, I am struggling to make sense of this product.I don't care about the lack of phone because I use a Tablet Data plan with my phone which is cheaper and still can make calls & txt with Google Hangouts.The current Android OS is 6 though so no sure why they are using 5 in a "brand new" product.
They are not going to update it. They updated CM1 to 5.0 and that's it. No further updates
24-135 zoom with constant f2 and 1" will be too big.I'd prefer 24-100/120 zoom similar to Canon S120 or Fuji XQ2 with 1/1.7" or 2/3" sensor.Or 35mm f2 with 1" sensor.
Soggoth: $850 for 1" sensor inside a phone body with no real mechanical controls sounds a bit too much.
Original DMC-CM1 is under $600 now
I've bought my CM1 for $375
supeyugin1: I don't understand Panasonic. This is the same hardware as CM1. Why don't they just lower the price on CM1 instead?
Why would it cost less? It's exactly the same hardware. They only removed dialer app.

supeyugin1: No touchscreen, no articulated or at least tiltable screen, no 4k, no flash - no buy.
@teddoman, You can mount OVF on almost any camera via hot shoe.
