Samsung have "Osborned" the NX line and right before the Holiday season, someone in product management should be fired.

darngooddesign: "With your eye to the viewfinder you can use your finger on the touchscreen LCD to move the focus point around. It's a handy feature that lets you keep a firm grip on the camera instead of having to move your hand to use the four-way controller."

How does this make your grip any more firm? You are still moving your thumb around. Having to shift the camera so your nose, pressed against the screen of the camera, probably is more awkward than just manipulating a right-side d-pad. I think it would make more sense on the GX8 where your nose is out of the way.

Ignoring those issues, I do think the process of doing this with the screen is smoother and faster than the d-pad.

You are missing the point. You move the focus point with your nose! No additional fingers needed.

faithblinded: Wow. Adjust focus point with the LCD while looking through EVF. Go Olympus. I've been jealous of Panny users with that feature for a while now. Not a bad refresh of this cam at all.

Of course the new 'E' lenses can only be used on mirrorless cameras at full aperture making a system switch much less convenient (for now)..

seeblue: Although I often find a good smartphone to be a great substitute for a camera, I doubt this good camera makes a great substitute for a smartphone.

For the size and battery-life alone, I wager NO ONE will (or will manage to) use this as their single smartphone. Thus the single device argument falls flat. This is a large sensor compact camera trying to look and act like a smartphone. In the end, it’s an expensive, moderately powered device, with average handling and speed, designed for a handful of pixel-peeping RAW and resolution enthusiasts.

The smartphone which will come closest to conquering photography will come from Apple or Samsung; not from a camera maker. Apparently they’re taking their time. In a few years we’ll look back at the CM1 as a kludge.

I am hardly an apple fanboi, (galaxy nexus, nexus 5, LG G2, LG Flex, Nexus 6, Nexus 7..) but my comment to Rapi was that if you are going to trash someone at least make some tiny effort to have the facts. That is all I said. Anti-Apple fanbois are every bit as insane as their counterparts. To sh*t on apple's board which has 2 women when you consider that Samsung's board has always and will always be all korean males is a bit hypocritical.
So, please troll with facts! Thanks.

Sigh!

Please spend 5 minutes researching before making your claims. Andrea Jung was on the board since Jan 2008. The other one since 2014.

Actually 2 of the 7 members of Apple's board are women and the first widely commercially available tablet computer was (scarily) made by AT&T (before the breakup).

I read exactly what dpr posted above:
"The two XPRO Ball Head models are distinguished from each other by their color: the 200PL features a black finish, while the Top Lock version is grey. "

veroman: Really? Listening to customers? Then why did Sony transfer all of their DSLR repairs (perhaps repairs for other gear as well) to a company known for many decades for shoddy workmanship and extremely poor service?

Why doesn't Sony have a legitimate service department of their own? Why is it that my A850, which needs a new shutter after only a few thousand clicks, cannot be sent directly to Sony for repair?

Listening to customers? Hardly.

Mine was fortunately under warranty but the included invoice showed $359 for a replacement circuit board. I would not have been a happy camper if I had had to pay that.

johnsmith404: Please stop that compressed vs uncompressed nonsense. What people are really asking for is lossless compressed files (even if they claim otherwise), not some gigantic 100MB RAW files, save for a few specialilsts.
If data compression itself was the issue, no audiophile would ever consider listening to FLACs. Compression is not a bad thing, does no harm to data and is 100% reversible when done correctly. The issue is lossless vs lossy and you should make that clear.

@Mister Joseph
You must not spend much time on the internet.

QuarryCat: yes the 1,8/55 mm Zeiss is better then any other AF 50 mm lens.
But are there other lenses that can compete with Canon's newest lenses?
I haven't testet one from Sony, that can do better and they are not all even equal.
Who needs 399 AF Points?
When still 9 points do better focussing on moving subjects?
The new Sony lenses have the same mistakes like Canon lenses 20 years ago - the switches are so loose, you have to put them under tape (4.0/70-200 mm SONY).
Why are Japanese technicians so ignorant and don't take the best lenses from Canon and Nikon and construct a new one without flaws?

Why they still use the old and ugly strap-attachment?
There have do be 4 points in front or on side of the camera - so everybody can wear it like he wants to - no need to let it swing in front of the belly.
(Look at Pentax LX or even Canon EOS M)

the switches on my 70-200F4 are so tight, I have to claw at them with my fingernails to move them, drives me crazy!
