Cameracist: If you want super cheap TTL compact flash for mirrorless, try Meike MK-320 as well.

I think this new one is bettee because it offers HSS as well

eno2: I really don't like the Sony processing engine, colors are bad, NR is strong and sharpening is high leading to high artifacts at higher ISO values. Once again, the Sony JPG engine is one of the worst out there. :(

Sony JPEG engine is one of the best when it comes to handling nouse reduction. The colors depends on the taste...

eazizisaid: Camera companies will still be around albeit not all of them. Some will disappear sooner than you might think and here I am thinking of Pentax/Ricoh. Others will follow and I think Olympus fits the bill just right. Pricing the EM1 Mark II at 2000$ clearly indicates that they are desperate for cash and I cannot blame them... and that pricing strategy clearly will not help. It is a bad move unless they will produce hundreds of those because we are talking about professional aps-c/full frame category at that price range... in addition, the competition from Panasonic is intense due to the pricing and the recent entrance of Xiaomi definitely will be hard to manage.
Canon and Nikon really need to wake up. The mid to low price range market is definitely shrinking and even though the pro market will still exist, the highest pricing that will be reflected on high end cameras and lenses -a phenomenon that just started recently- will make users reluctant about updating their gears frequently...

Sony has enough cash from other vaiable business units... but this us just my analysis, you can disagree without the "lol"

Sony has enough cash... Hasselblad, Phaseone and Leica won't be affected and Samsung just did the right thing withdrawing from the camera industry.

Timbukto: I'd just get the S7. Where as the iPhone 7 doesn't get all the camera goodies the plus has (OIS and telephoto prime), I honestly can't figure out what the Note 7 does that a S7 doesn't except explode! Also disappointing that no one has used extinguished as a pun. Otherwise yah Google Pixel looks nice, not as weather proof as the Samsungs but more fireproof.

@Dr_Jon thanks for the clarification.

Telephoto my ass. When did a 56mm become a tele focal length ?

raindance: Ugh, I don't quite understand this. The Fuji XT100 represents everything that is fantastic about a fixed lens camera. It's such an easy choice and honestly produces better OOC image quality than the Sony and Leica.

@raindance, it's a matter of taste. By far, the leica jpegs are superior imho

This is not true. Are you trying to compare a 42 mp FF image sensor to a 16 apsc one ? For both the case of the leica and the sony, the image quality betters the one you get from the x100t.

What does it take to work with a guy like him ? Either at Fuji, Sony, Zeiss or Leica ?

I'd love to join their marketing team, what an interessting job it would be ! I am pretty sure i won't get bored as my 50% internet traffic is about photography gear !

Bravo to Fujifilm, Sony, Olympus, Leica & Hasselblad ! The clear leaders of tomorrow camera market !!

eazizisaid: Let me guess, the new menu interface isn't backward compatible and the A7 series won't get it until the next iteration... great !

There are many counter examples... look at Fujifilm for instance.

As per my knowledge, the menu is only an interface and can be modded easily if the firmware is well written without having to deal with the core code.

I personally don't care if they implement it or not, but Sony acts this way pretty much every time and they never care to explain.

imho, if Sony doesn't provide it for the previous but still regulary updated cameras (A7 Mk I A6k and up) it's one of two things : Either they won't just for marketing purposes or the firmware is badly engineered.

eazizisaid: SUDDENLY, larger sensors are relevant once again for the Fuji Folks...

Expect a new lesson with a stick & a slate from Zack Arias soon.

Nonetheless, kudos to Fuji !

Then FF would be the best compromise between "MF" and Aps-c
