The main dealbreaker for me is that uncomfortable on/off switch, believe or not that was the reason why I sold my E-M5 :-(
f1.4 in the 4/3 terms ,sharp from wide open and small! wow
EdHaady: A7 or X-T1?
A7 if you have money to buy it,best picture quality (high ISO , dunamic range), legacy lenses,X-T1 if you need better handling, native lenses
I found it hilarious that Dpreview posting rumors and "leaks" and at the same time they already have an camera in their hand, surely they will post preview or first look review at the day of announcement! ;-D
I am sorry but I have to be very CRITICAL to this article:
1) seems like written by complete newbie to mirrorless/NEX cameras, who just discovered how peaking works2) very poor lens selection, I would expect much better glass reviewed - not just crappy glass for few $$$ , C'Mon Barney you must have access to better glass!3) main complain seems to be re: magnif. button placement, but half of the community knows that magnified view is best assigned to centre button AEL// AF/MF 4) I feel that shooting alt /legacy lenses is much more fun than portrait in this half-baked article!I have learned nothing new at all

SETI: Sony RX100 optics?
No, as it is smaller image circle...
Andy Crowe: "There's no such thing as a free lunch, it seems. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 offers a larger sensor than many of its big-sensor-small-camera competitors, but enters the market with only one lens designed to fit it without tipping over"
Surely all the pancake lenses (14mm, 17mm, 20mm and PZ14-42) would make perfectly good companions to this camera?
EXACTLY!- that's why you can buy additional grip which increases the height ..
ugly cyclop of the camera!
JEROME NOLAS: Where is promissed 16-80mm lens? Announced 2-3 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why Sony cannot introduce NEX with control dial aka NEX-6 and alpha menu aka RX100?
Sam Carriere: If Sony says "early September" for availability, my guess is next spring or early summer ... maybe.
perhaps this is way to go with P&S : bring something unique to the table, in this case: size, why not? almost as slim as your mobile, with zoom and better control...
Samsung problems in MY VIEW:1) flange distance -too short for Leica M lenses2) poor distributors- its a fraction of their income- less attention then real phot companies3) lenses not made by 3rd party (look at the Fuji)4) high ISO not great initially-e.g sensors were behind when they started (look at the SONY)
Audi Q7 is much better

simple answer is : FF mirrorless :D
Seems like 10-18, 24, 35 and surprisingly 50 are the gems! 12 Toit is a bit of dissapointment
Josh152: Personally I am more interested to see if Canon has finally caught up on dynamic range and color depth than I am in the on sensor phase detection.
I guess SONY would need similar sensor in their new line of SLT cameras,so they can drop the old design (what they actually already announced). Again, isn't it basically sony sensor tweaked by Canon and they call it Canon now?
Timmbits: 1. design is form and function... looks are ok, I guess, but at this price, not even a hint of a handgrip is a pity... we'll be seeing a lot of $700 cameras wearing $1 adhesive-backed rubber strips on the front.
2. bye-bye nikon1... between the rx100ii and larger-sensor mirrorless cameras, you just weren't meant to be.
