Neodp: That looks like the right direction. Where the view finder for when the suns to bright?

When sun is too bright behind you making screen invisible flip the screen and turn around. :)

The display cannot be tilted down at all, right? So overhead shooting is out? Quite an omission.

It's bigger and 160g heavier than D750. It is twice the weight of Sony A7r and almost twice the weight of NX1. All are sealed metal cameras (although Sony's sealing is so-so). What are they putting in there, bricks?

tkbslc: Tough call between this or the RX100 III. Viewfinder and better battery life, or better controls and longer/faster lens.

"Tough call between this or the RX100 III."

I'll solve it for you - LX100. :)

RX100Mk3 without EVF and with slow Canon processor (6.5fps vs 10 fps), small battery and no full-sensor readout. Yay.
At least Canon can make lenses. Nikon 1 users would kill for that lens.
It seems Canon should go the path of Sigma - useless cameras but great lenses.

Impulses: I guess judging by the comments (or lack thereof) not many are interested in the 35-100? I'm very interested for one, it's smaller than I thought it'd be (barely larger than the Oly 45mm?), somewhat pricey at nearly $400 tho, for a slow tele... Miniaturization has it's cost I guess, at $300 I might've preordered it instantly, at $400 I'll wait a bit. Maybe Japan import shops on Ebay will sell it cheaper...

I'll rarely carry any real tele zoom with my GF6, they're all just too large (wouldn't fit mounted on my bag and would take up the space of 2-3 primes otherwise), so paying more for a much smaller but shorter/slower collapsing tele isn't something I'd object to, I'll get much more use out of it... I just don't know about paying 200%+ more for the privilege.

Oly 40-150 and Pana 45-150 are not large at all.

peevee1: DPR, what is the battery life? It is missing from the specs.

I don't bring a bag with me everywhere where my camera goes.

I don't quite understand - does it shoot 4k video in a series of JPEGs, shoots a single JPEG during the video shooting (with lower quality), or just extracts a JPEG from the video after shooting (like you can easily do on a computer)?

You make more of them. You don't have to bring spares, and change them in the middle of the day.

What image? Did you kink to an external site?

ArchiDeos: Nice Camera, can't wait to compare with other new Cameras.. But what happen to their pocket size design to compete with DSLR Cameras..

Of course m43 is the king of pancakes, Oly 9mm, Pana 14mm, Oly 15mm, Oly 17/2.8, Pana 20/1.7 (2 of them), Oly 14-42EZ, Pana 12-32 and 14-42 X PZ are all pancakes. :)
And of course with Oly they all are stabilized. :)

Sdaniella: NX1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uA1RHC8_VnQ

t=90-100

mentions
both EVF OLED and AMOLED tilt-screen refresh rate is: 0.005s (5ms) delay
great for action with less lag

how does it compare to other EVF/rear-screen display of other d-v-camera systems?

do pro industry digital Cine/Vid cameras get much better EVFs with less lag? Say 1 to 2 millisecond? (since good pc monitors are in that range) or better, microseconds?

and OLEDs in the microsecond range, faster than conventional tft-led/lcd?

Refresh rate != delay, Sdaniella. You cannot calculate one from another.

peevee1: "The EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM will be available in December for $599.99. "

24-105/4L is available for $600 off kits all the time on ebay.

That 3.5 quickly disappears, and far from 1 stop difference between 5.6 and 4. 1/3EV - you will not even notice. 1EV - of course.

peevee1: That is one powerful camera. I wish they have learned from Fuji the design and firmware support practices though.
DPR, how about a complete review, including AF-C test at 15 fps?

In JPEG? ;) Stronger noise reduction by default?

In reply to:

Peiasdf: DMC-LX100 is lot better at this point. Way faster lenses.

You cannot buy a GM5 with kit lens plus 14mm plus 20mm for the same money. And then you would still need to change lenses.
Don't get me wrong, I am an owner of a m43 camera. But LX100 is impressive. I wish they would release the lens alone at a reasonable price for m43 mount.

In reply to:

peevee1: The price and technology of a by-gone era...

No, the sensor tech and flipping mirror are things of the past.
"Sports, Action and Wildlife shooting" can be done without them, better.
Compare to cheaper NX1 with 40% more resolution, 50% faster sequential speed, WiFi etc etc.

Distortion is easy to fix (and now finally Canon can fix it in firmware for OOC JPEGs). F/5.6 vs f/4 is not.

On Samsung announces premium NX 50-150mm F2.8 OIS article (41 comments in total)
In reply to:

Serious Sam: Reading this, the Olympus and Fuji release. It surely make the Panny 35-100 a unique piece of kit in the market. Yes it has its problems but man seems no one is replicating that optical formula.

Having said that you can say Panasonic is the only one getting it wrong because it must omitted something for its size.

"when the Panny 35-100 first came out everyone think its sooooo expensive. It now looks like bargain of the century when compare to the others."

It is still expensive (MSRP at least). For a much smaller lens for smaller image circle.

"Samsung updates NX firmware."

Any examples of recent updates adding features like Fuji and Olympus do?
Here are the changes in NX300 v 1.43:
