JEROME NOLAS: A second class sensor for 1,799.00?
You know, there is a camera around that sensor :D
Don't see the point: that's p&s quality. You'd be better off with a good bridge camera.
draschan: hey guys, many pro cine lenses are in a 20k price range. for movie people this is no surpise. obviously not many filmmakers around here obviously.
You mean like, obviously?
I might get one for my Panasonic GM1 with a Speedbooster adapter :D
Impossible is Canon.
True. Even my kit 12-32 on the tele lens is sharper on the GM1.
photo perzon: For the same money and weight and size, the APS-C Fuji X-A1 and the perfect 27mm pancake produce immaculate samples.
Who cares what a Leica store thinks ? :DThen you could say the Ricoh GR is a much better camera than the Fuji.
Wow, this is just so random. Those cameras have not much in common, besides the points you made. One is a very compact all-in-one camera made for the enthuiast, with a very nice versatile fast lens, excellent controls and a built-in viewfinder. The other one is an entry-level interchangeable lens camera with a not so fast prime wide angle lens, with few manual controls, no viewfinder meant for moms and beginners...You know, for the same money, I could get a new frying pan, a toaster, a small TV-set and a vaccum cleaner, all at the same time ! :D
This is the iConstrast thing for boosting shadows. I never use it on my GM1 for that very reason.
I think it looks allright under such poor lighting.
The might be some shadow compensation going on here (iContrast).
Jacques Cornell: I wonder why Panasonic didn't use the same 20MP 1" sensor as the FZ1000, given that it seems comparable in high-iso noise and superior in resolution. It would have allowed a smaller camera and/or faster lens. The LX100 seems like a great camera, but it doesn't provide a pocketable option for current MFT owners. Waiting for an LF2 with a better lens.
The 1" sensor is behind in noise performance, about one stop. This camera allows much better DOF control than a smaller sensor camera.
Valentinian: What would be the technical reason not to release a 24-75mm(equivalent)/f1.7-2.8 for the interchangeable lens micro four thirds system?
Flange distance with interchangeable lenses.
Well, the 18-135 is not exactly the best lens for this kind of exercise!
Nice camera, but a very bold move in the current 'full frame craze'. I'm afraid it's a bit of a one trick pony: sports photography. That does not mean it's a bad camera for other types of photography, but it's clearly built with action in mind.
The approach is interesting: with full frame sensors coming to mirrorless cameras, it's not a DSLR niche any more, the only thing the good old DSLR has to offer over mirrorless is sheer speed and AF performance. And this camera sure delivers.
photofan1986: Meh, I have a Panasonic 20 f1.7, it's even faster, and so much smaller and lighter, that they managed to make it a pancake. Come on, Nikon, give us the pancake version :D Ps: That's humor ;-)
@dansclic,What strikes me dead is that they are some people who care to write a reply when obviously they cannot even read properly.
Thanks, Mato34,I suppose Latin is not so much in use any more :D

Kirppu: I personally don't get this concept. Buy a lens mount, that work by it self no matter that the ergonomics seem to suck. Use your lens mount with your smart phone that acts as you camera rear screen. Still you're far from ergonomic nirvana.Plus, you still have to buy lenses for your system.
Heck why not just buy the E-mount camera body?This is one of those things I just don't get it.
@howaboutrawYes, if You don't lose connection every couple of minutes.
Very honest performance from such a small sensor.For those looking for a high quality all-in-one camera with excellent ergonomics, it may fit the bill. However, it's just that: a small-sensored compact camera. Don't expect miracles.
