yahoo2u: I'll wait for real world images before giving an opinion. Image 12 at ISO-400 in exploded view is a touch on the "noisy" side.The Nikon A at half the price is a better deal, and as for now the Ricoh still has this market stitched. Fuji boys who enjoy the 28mm view will buy it because it's a Fuji, that's it.There will plenty on the used market just like the Nikon A when it was out. The Ricoh's were harder to come by used because "photographers" purchased those.
Coolpix is not slow. It is contrast detect AF system, but not slower than other cdaf systems. The face detect works very well and as a bonus it will expose just on the face which is great for high contrast scenes.
It makes me cry to think that with just a little bit more thoughtfulness put into control layout that Nikon could have had a camera as good as this one looks to be. Aperture ring - shutter speed dial - come on Nikon how could you not have done this? The Nikon CpA is one of my favorite small cameras, but it could have been so much more had they given it the "Fuji treatment" - which used to be the way Nikon built cameras too, but has somehow lost their way.
Fotogeneticist: It's great to finally see a competitor to the Ricoh GR series. High image quality to camera size ratio. The Ricoh GR has been the only truly pocketable APS-C for years. I use mine for street photography as well as while I am cycling.
And the near clone Nikon CpA.
The gr and the CpA set the bar pretty high in terms of lens performance. The sensors were the last gen 16mp jobs. But both still performed pretty good. But still if the Fuji handles well it could still be a good option for this type of camera.
Compared to the CpA and Ricoh GRII - this is a fair price to charge for the camera. Seems pretty good.
This camera is gorgeous. Wish Nikon would make a DX version of the Df and charge somewhere in the affordable range for it. I would throw coin at them if they would do that.
brownie314: What what a great looking spec sheet. Now I just need to compress my hands down to hold it and it will be great. Also some decent aps-c glass from Sony would be nice to have.
bmwzimmer - yeah my wife says that too - oh wait, we are still talking about cameras right?
Those are not great portraits, kinda uninspired. But that wasn't the point. The lens is sharp and has pretty smooth bokeh - which is what you want from a lens.
I think I am lazy - can anyone tell me what is new and different about the 6300? I know new sensor and super bad AF - what else? 4k - that is it?
Dammit Sony - stop making it super hard for me to justify sticking with my Nikon DX bodies.
brownie314: So, announce a new aps-c body along with some new ff glass. Makes sense.
I know these lenses are sorely needed for the fe-mount. I totally agree. What I am saying is the a6xxx bodies are freaking fantastic but have no lens support. And yes I know that these new lenses will mount on the tiny bodies, but what a cluster EFF that would be. Give us some interesting aps-c lenses and those small bodies suddenly get much more interesting.
I decide for everyone, all the time. So do you. I was simply saying Sony's announcement seems a little weird. You can Mount the hubble on your a6000 if you want, I don't mind.
You are mistaken, that new 70-200/2.8 is exactly what the a6300 needs. Perfect lens for that body.

brownie314: I really don't get this product. It is totally "me too" in an already crowded market. Pentax (Ricoh) had something unique in the gr. Why not try a ff version of that bad boy? Love it/hate it - at least it would be different.
A FF pentax gives me no joy. Why would it? Is it going to be better than any other FF DSLR out there right now? Unlikely. Now if someone other than Leica were to step into the market with a lower cost true rangefinder (like Cosina and a few others did in the film days) I would be truly interested.

armandino: freeze some frames inside the cave, quite the mess. Which makes me think that the ISO performance is also hyped a lot by the new specifications. I am going to be really surprised if this camera is anything more than 1/2 stop better than its competitors.
armandino - again, can't say much about a stills quality from a video. Sony is known for video and I am sure they are using very good, high quality codecs and very high bitrates compared to nikon. So you are seeing lots of artifacts and compression. Stills will be a different story.
I thought Sony had the curved sensor locked down.
User2623759823: I just wanna make a prediction here and NOW .this Oly will make a lot of Canon and Nikon people feel really bad and sorry :D
With noisy iso 3200 - probably not.
