Ben O Connor: 550£... Hopefully, it will be about 550€... Which is 50€ more than Oly 17mm1.8 (included lens hood)

wider, sharper, smaller... Hopefully it also has buılt in IS (Even my e-pm1 got in its body) and performs well. Not slow as pana-cakes. ( 14mm, 20mm)

And this time not just boring-ugly black only lens! It has also silver variety.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (489 comments in total)

Man ! Its a great cam, nothin' to say about. It already has the top notch lens for 1" system. Its a Zeiss.

Actually If you own a v1 and all lenses, it would be more heavy and more expensive and worse F number!!!!!! So its a good deal really.

If it has to be full frame(I'd preferred Pentax 645), use a D800E, at F18.0 aperture, shutter speed at about 1/2 second ISO 100, in room light/ indirectly illuminated faces.

DONE !

the photographer takes peoples precious time, and we still can't see the ear from front (coz unnecessary DoF)

Just joking :) its a great work. I only sad that its a canon work :| :D

On Samsung NX mini First Impressions Review preview (563 comments in total)

I would hail this camera seriously, it has beautiful minimalist lines. So clean, very capable (1/16.000 shutter is twice faster than e-p5!!!) and 1" sensor size is a fine comprise between resolution/pocketablity.

HOWEVER,

Who cares brand a new mouth (NX-M is not Nikons 1 mouth according to review), and there are better cams with more pocketable and f1.8 at the 24mm with 20mpx 1" sensor. And rx10 puts both quality and price tag to the mount Everest!!.

But more and more importantly, who cares all !!! There is Panasonic GM-1 for best image quality/pocketabilty compromise. M4/3 offers tons of lens from various makers.

sorry Samsung, sad for your cash loose on this.

In reply to:

Hachu21: What's the point to make interchangeable lenses on a small sensor if they are not faster than the RX100 series???

"Its Wi-Fi connectivity and flip-up LCD suggest that it's aimed at a socially-driven user, someone who wants concert photos and pictures of friends and isn't too concerned about changing settings."
So i doubt it will be interested in swapping the lense...
"The 'selfie'-loving, socially-driven user is not likely to care whether the lens comes off or not "
+1

Another strange concept... designed better for asia market?

The great photographers also does not use cheap ace consumer cams ;)

Glad to see good news about Olympus. They deserves to be recognized as one of the most important actor in camera business. There are bigger companies out there , that they did and keep doing mistakes... But their "name" saves them.
Olympus keep growing by good decisions since 2008. They should focus on technology and new lenses. Good work.

(unknown member): Thank goodness Canon had the good sense to stick with the G1 X and go with a greatly improved Mark II. This V3 has some good specs, but being an ILC it is putting a little 1" sensor up against bigger sensors in all other ILCs, the G1 X II, the 1" sensor in the RX100 II, etc. In other words, it has put itself in a position that has better alternatives on both sides.
If they wanted to go ILC, they shouldn't have been so conservative as to use a 1" sensor. If they had to use a 1" sensor, they should have put it in a large sensor compact. Just like the M this camera is useful, but is designed to indicate that Nikon doesn't really take the market seriously.....they choose to compete on their own terms rather than jump right in the middle of all ILCs. I don't think they need to dive right in personally because the ILC segment has had years to gain popularity and still sputters along.

I also made a comment to that post as well Xentinus. :)

Their own EOS M become their own super enemy.

But at the same time they achieved something, that has so much potential; smaller dslr, 100D. They should concentrate on that.

End of the day, I am a photo enthusiasts & a glad, satisfied Olympus user.

PS: I so wish to own a D800E from Nikon and a Canon cinema camera body and those 15.000 $ cine lenses!!!! BUt... I am in aquaculture / fish processing business. Photography is my hobby and Olympus gets that.

Eos M burned a lot from canon's bank account. :) the giant slr makers just could not get it.

Pentax was doing something radical, yet usefull for their mirrorles cam, but it was lacking pocketablility,

stop trying Nikon. Make D800 for 1000$ ( body only) make us and your cash flow happy :)

stratplaya: Who manufactures the sensor? I didn't find that in the release.

Sony, panasonic, kodak... Who cares!

its the industrial realities of today. Almost all diesel car has Bosch injectors, Prelli or Michelin tyres...etc.

But the formula made by the Hasselblad. Its a proper stuf after all woody, ugly sony-ness...
