Also better as it seems...

M4/3 is a winning format for most people's need I guess.
This baby seems to be superb.
Pana made a great job...
Who believed it some 10 years ago that Pana is going to be amongst the leading players in photography?

reginalddwight: Looks like you guys had a fun time at the ballpark.

Photos are somewhat decent for a superzoom "compact".

More than decent I could say, serious portable tool for a tabloids paparazzi...

It's funny to see the prices apart anything else...
Why these cams cost these money and not 20 $ more or less at least according to its features...
And the diffs in pricing in USA and Europe...
Silly..!

aris14: We need cheaper equipment of top quality.
That said IMO right now is the 4/3 format that allows us to have top IQ and glasses with reasonable cost. I think that current technology suggests that today we can have at least equal with top 24 x 36 mm sensors a couple of years ago.
The 24 x 36 sensors may remain for special projects and demands along with larger ones.
In less than 5-6 years a sensor of let's say 12 x 18 should deliver the same IQ in every aspect with today's top guns...
The rest is marketing...

The main problem with sensors is temperature and only temperature. The technology to reduce noise (mainly produced because of temperature) is rather accessible yet some expensive. I didn't say that bigger formats are/will be obsolete. I am saying that at least the 90% of pictures taken for any reason can be taken with cams which have to be affordable and offering more than satisfying IQ to the 99% of users.
I am not referring to special projects for which, we have to admit it, only a bunch of pro photographers can deliver.
After all photography is something you see in printed form.
Something we usually overlook.

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (487 comments in total)

Ι find it extremely difficult to see the use of these cams anyway...
All these about street photography which needs some peculiar cams is IMO rather a philology.
Street photography as a term/art does not need a certain cam with certain abilities or whatsoever, just something handy and reliable, top IQ is not its main quest.
The only positive thing in these cams is that they explore miniaturization.

In reply to:

fakuryu: I really don't get this camera. I mean Pentax shooters have always been enjoying the small form factor DSLR for years, had excellent pancake lenses for years, suddenly Canon just shaved a few mm here and there, marketed it as the world's smallest (not really that small compared to the old K-m, but not taking anything away from Canon) but is lagging behind compared to its current peers yet everyone is ecstatic. What gives? Oh yeah, Pentax is not Canon.

Pentax guys unfortunately live some 30 years ago, that is why they sunk their ship which in most terms used to be excellent comparing to the other guys ship...

I cannot see a serious reason why mid or top range cams have to be so huge...
This kind of cams show the way. If handling is a problem then you should have the ability to buy an add on pack to fit the camera, It would be a seriously lighter solution... I guess that in less of 5 years a full pro configuration cam would have similar size (plus a 10%) and a weight not exceeding the 600 grams.

aris14: Nice try...
If this cam can deliver decent results It will be the best tool for paparazzis at least as a backup to their heavy staff they usually carry...

Apart some rather few exceptions, which only justify the rule, the mazority of paparazzis are people, to my opinion of course and the guys I know so far, who are adventurous, gadget minded if not fetishists with any kind of equipment they own or they want to own.
Additionally (to Britney Elvis) tabloids or popular magazines usually print their pics in a resolution of 200-250 dpi for which Pana's resolution is more than enough. Don't tell me that you want to see if the thighs of the female celebrity have some light blonde hair or if she wears the diamond ring the last tycoon gave her, lol.
So with a Pana and some Raynox you can have excellent results for this kind of business which will be more than welcomed and probably well paid, since u can achieve easily a magnification at least double from the originally offered by the cam.
And if the guys of the tabloid or pop mag know a little about denoising, if needed, wow...! Miracle!

It's not funny but this guy is hilarious.
Apart what they produced in the last 3 years the latest remarkable they produced was some 10 years ago...
The sleep in Nikon seems it lasts long...
Meanwhile they try to sell their badge/logo in any kind of me too products.
Leica and Hasselblad at least are more honest, if not entertaining...
Nikon doesn' t make its fans happy anymore..

Len_Gee: "Re imagining the camera"? What a bunch of PR bull* sh#it.
Who in the world is going to pay $1000 premium when you can reskin a stock D6 for $9.95.
Leica is dead as a camera company for enthusiasts.

Leica probably recognizes that there are a lot of good cams out there...

I feel pity for the buyers...
At least Leica wouldn't have its model photographed with stains on the lens hood.

Blame, if any, is not upon mags and dailys, but in the people buying them.
Every buy is practically a "vote of confidence" to the content they host in their pages. No matter if it is plain text or photo or both.
As a matter in fact we buy the reality we chose therefore we like to perceive.
