Horshack: Nikon silently shifted its strategy to full-frame several years ago, much to the chagrin of Pro DX users. If you go to a trade show you'll likely see this display in Nikon's booth:
hah so this is how ppl get the FF-wiener envy
looks like fuji and sony mirrorless designs crossbred
OBI656: I LOVE to read these responses to this article 😎 This kibitz club amaze me as always ... 😆
I wonder how actual camera should looks like and function to complete all of these sunset picture takers ... 😜
it's the purpose of the internet bro, armchair-experting
oluv: obviously i don't know a single song of "the most successful commercial pop stars of all time", but on the other hand i am rather into miles davies and herbie hancock, so hardly representative.
Oh yeah well I can enjoy any music that I like whether it is good or bad miles monk beejees monkees swift creed
dwill23: optical zoom.
I just read a bunch of comments comparing this to compacts, and larger cameras. The fact is, phones are still no where near compacts. Phones are just convenient, you now don't have to take a camera for snap shots.
I was at the beach with my GF and saw people taking pics of friends with the lighthouse way off in the background. With fixed, wide angle phones, the lighthouse is a tiny dot. It actually pushes it farther away.
With a $150 point and shoot, 20x optical zoom, I back way up and zoom in. Presto! The lighthouse is HUGE in the background. Mount Rushmore, last year, same camera. People taking pics and the president's faces are smaller than their friend's eyeballs. I back up, zoom in, and the heads are larger than my friend's. This is very dramatic and impossible with any camera phone.
NYC, Battery Park, back up, get statue of liberty HUGE in background. Not a tiny speck like everyone else shooting pics.
Optical zoom will set you apart. Carry one.
meh, who needs another subpar picture of a lighthouse/geyser/hotspring/buffalo plenty of those already on the internet done a thousand times better by other people already.
most photos people capture are for saving moments in time and a good cellphone camera is more than adequate for people to make a nice memorable capture provided they learn how to compose.
xeriwthe: wow serious innovation in sensor tech hitting the real time (sure, foveon's done it before but certainly not in a mainstream way). mad respect for sony's silicon engineering.
hope my favorite manufacturer can hold out long enough in today's insanely competitive camera business to bring their version to market!
ahh ok, still a normal bayer sensor but with more photodiode area. thanks.

2eyesee: It looks to me like the RX10M2 represents a better example of the 'convergence' that DPR talk about than the Canon XC10 - at half the price.
sony generally holds off for a couple years before selling a new sensor to competitors. look at the gap between the RX100 and the panasonic LX-100/canon g7x. or the 24MP APS-C NEX7 and the D7100.
hot damn sony pulling out all the stops on technology. congrats to sony
VisualFX: "MADE IN CHINA". No purchase from me. Fuji had something going there for awhile, being Made in Japan. Now they are going cheap like everyone else. Whoever wants to support sweatshops and poor labour conditions and poor human rights, go right ahead and purchase this camera.
i love westerners who proclaim they will never buy anything chinese made. lol
xeriwthe: most logical elegant design ever conceived by man
yea i really shouldn't talk smack without using one. can't deny they look a little funny
i only need to see it to know it's the bees knees of industrial design and ergonimicity
most logical elegant design ever conceived by man
look at the paws on that guy!
wow.. destroys all files? seriously did people actually get hit by this?
would love some extra low light phase detect AF love for my 100s but, not counting on it. love you anyway fuji!
lol f/8 childstoy
Wooo everyone loves the retro look!
Roland Karlsson: Cutting jobs and raising more money and spending it on a show room in Tokyo. My experience with several years of raising even more money is that the last money funder owns most of the company and the original people starting the venture is now thinned out in ownership till nearly nothing and are already losers, even if there is a success. Maybe the original starters of the company have succeeded in avoiding that trap. But ... I cannot really see how.
The preparation for this showroom probably started before they decided to cut jobs. Just saying
