arhmatic: Innovation, finally. We really need innovative ways to secure small, one lens mirrorless cameras.
Sometimes I wrap mine in a bandana. Because there are no simple, small and cheap solutions to buy. Not kidding...
Enough with those bulky camera bags that scream to be stolen...Tamrac and all those, take notice. Be creative.
Arhmatic I thought you said "Banana", so I 'liked'.
Bananaskins are the new ...
So is the sensor the same size as last time : i.e. very slightly bigger than m4/3rds but the same shape?
Tell us more about the EVF : will it fit EOS-M bodies too?
The body is one BIG THUMB-GRIP,which might be good.Shame they changed the sensor : the ONE advantage they have over other large-sensor compacts.
I WANT the blurry focus thing to work, it can then be implemented in every mirrorless camera under the sun.Progress! (Maybe)
I'm interested to see what all this huge power means for it as a stills camera.Could be good.
Hang on, does this mean there was never a real Pentax 1.4 converter until now?
Fabulous, genius!Those who already use red-dot sights for aeroplane photos should test this ASAP, I hope it works as well as it looks.
Is the X-E2's EVF as good (but less magnified) as the E-M1's EVF?Is it the same, similar, or better once it's magnified to X-T1's size?
Rules are rules, cloning is serious if you've signed a pact with your employers promising NOT to do that! What a muppet.
A lot of commenters seem to be missing the point : this is the first medium-format CMOS sensor commercially available, and we should simply be discussing what that concept brings, rather than film-vs-35mm-vs-D800-vs-ETC.You will now be able to use your medium-format kit at decent high-ISO, fast frame rates and ... soon ... live-view leading to better integration with LCD/EVF, focusing techniques and even video.Bring it on! It will get cheaper and more featured too. It's another option while the CCD tech should continue alongside.
Show us a view from the front with the lens off,i.e. show me the sensor.
peevee1: " The versatile new Sony a5000 camera (model ILCE-5000) is the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera to feature the convenience of Wi-Fi connectivity.1"
Of course they lie, Panasonic GM1 is smaller, lighter and has WiFi.
Using a footnote to link to extra information not available in the initial statement : LIE, but technically allowed ... by slimy lying gits.Although, is the GM1 lighter? Personally I do not like cameras that feel 'lightweight', despite their size.
Buy it for the EVF and the awesome lens cap!
The RED one'll sell well in Italy : Tifosi will be sticking little horse badges on it! (I would)
Never mind the size : this is Panasonic's FIRST GF (I said it) model with a competitive up-to-date sensor.
Even more little bits of info on the processing side which suggest these A7s and the E-M1 were developed together - orat the very least by teams exchanging a LOT of information.
The camera body is oblong, and the lens is cylindrical : SUE them!Nikon are being right muppets. Doh.
EVF has very similar dot count to the Lumix G10 : is it the same old unit or more like a downsized NEX7 one?
Is that Polaroid she's holding significantly smaller than they used to be?
Do I get a free Hasselblad Looney too?
