Would like pictures that show the lenght and width without too much of a wide shot
babalu: I think it is going to be a close race between OMD E-M1 and Fuji X-T1 . Both are good for rough street/nature shooting sessions, both have very good handling characteristics, both are smaller and lighter than comparable DSLR's.Right now I believe they'll split the enthusiast market between the two of them, as both are defining the state-of-the art body that is craved for out there. IF canikon do not have a (mirrorless) surprise up their sleeves ...
The E-M1 feels like a plastic creaky ugly made in China. The X-T1 is a made in Japan delicious machine.
dervish_candela: hahawhat a joke competing with D7100, 70D and K-3 ? most of people who would consider those expensive high end mirrorless cameras are COMING from those "enthusiast" D7000's and 50D's and even 5DmkII's.
and we are buying into high-end mirrorles INSTEAD of our "upgrade path".
so it seems to me, that X-T1 and E-M1 really compete against D800 and 5DmkIII.
to hell with magnesium alloy bricks!
i guess you like sensor oil
where is my credit card?
The flash does not bounce. The LCD does not do selfies.
Why do all the pictures look as if at night?
Nikon should make a smaller AFS retro for the rest of us.
Cane: It may fit in a pocket, but with a lens it becomes a weird shape, like "hey, are you happy to see me". I really don't care how small the body is if it has a protruding lens, as it defeats the point of the small body to begin with.
Good point. The pocket has to be a jacket pocket, where the fluff hides the girth. Not a pant's pocket!
Gold review! I find the kit to be amazing.
I bought a black model on eBay, also Henry's has it. Much more handsome.
They should make a APS-C look like the Df, just smaller and cuter. It will sell.
It takes a woman to come up with this stuff. I knew it. Maybe people were looking at Miley's wrecking ball on their iPhone the museum was so boring.
No built in flash. Even the silly add on does not bounce. So you have to be that guy...the guy that blinds everybody with no bounce. The flip LCD does not allow for self biographical.
sbansban: I was so happy to see the Ricoh GR included among the best compact cameras for travel but was surprised to find its close twin Nikon Coolpix A missing - especially when it has by far the best sensor AND lens rating from DXOMark among all cameras anywhere close to its size. Some other great travel cameras that came to my mind were the Canon G1 X, Fujifilm F900EXR (why is the F900EXR never mentioned in the same breath as the other 20X+ pocketable compacts like ZS30/TZ40, SX280, HX20V/HX50V et al?), LX7, maybe even LF1 - all of which are still very much available for purchase. And since the Canon SX280 now has a documented battery issue that Canon has failed to resolve with their latest firmware upgrades, wouldn't its predecessor - the SX260 be a wiser choice?
The Coolpix A is the most hated best camera out there. Perhaps its price. The Ricoh GR is revered, the A is ridiculed. I do not understand it.
Well that is the future of the Internet, video conference for the forums.
JeanLucX: I would buy it on the spot if it comes with hot shoe. I get it the GM1 is supposed to be small but it would be nice to add a viewfinder if I want to. Maybe the GM2 will have that like the RX100 II
of course. I've had the VF2 and now the VF4 for a year and never used it. I've had several cameras that took a hot shoe flash PL6, GR, Nikon A and not used it.
I went outdoors and took some pictures. At 12mm the lens looked OK. At 32mm it looked very sharp. Lest not forget you can put a 14mm 2.5 or a 20mm 1.7 or an Oly 45mm 1.8 on the GM1 and stay with primes.
My wife who is 50 years old looks 40 with the X100 and 60 with the X100S. The S deepens shadows, wrinkles. You can see the S pictures, even in daylight the shadows are deep black with no detail inside the shadows. The X100 lets you see what is in the shadows. It is more natural. You decide if you wanna look 20 years difference. The X100 is brilliant. The S has issues, and RAW issues.
I already bought one on eBay in Hong Kong, a Black model! I intend to sell the slow kit lens and run it with the 20mm and the 14mm, but if the kit lens feels tight it will stay. I love the pop up bounce flash of the GM1.
If they build in the 20mm and the 14mm as built in primes it will be even smaller! Compete with Ricoh GR and Nikon A.
