AngryCorgi: Glad to see a conventional sensor option in the lineup. Will be nice to see some results from a good-old Bayer-filtered sensor. :)
Agree. I've never liked the colors or razor sharp look of the X-trans sensors.
Hugo808: LOL Ken Rockwell has done a review of the XA-1 and claims it has an X-trans sensor! He should have read the press release....
I've followed Rockwell for years but he often shoots from the hip with his opinions like when he origunally blew off the X100 (which subsequently became his favorite everyday carry) and blew off the Sony RX1 without ever discovering all the external controls or how to adjust the white balance (which he certainly does on big Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras). Too bad, because his site does contain a lot of usefull information.
Nikguy: I can understand the two leading cameras excellant and state of the art. However as we all dream of a pocket camera that can statisfy 80% of the needs of a big camera heavy (I know the Oly is somewhat small) my vote is with my RX100 the fun begins with pocketabilty and great photos. There are no losers to me in the list but we keep trying to pit one system against another, That keeps them all making better equipment and WE enjoy the results. Isn't the free market great!
Glad to see I'm not the only one who did not like the RX100 (like my X10 way better). After my experience with the RX100, I'm wary of the RX1 as it might provide a similar (unpleasant) shooting experience but just with more pixels. Very happy with the OMD and happy with the 5D3. LX7 sounds interesting.
