Sutlore: When will X-pro2 support 4K video recording? next update? :D

It doesn't have the larger heat sink of the xt-2

Combatmedic870: This is a very well speced phone. The newest processor, BT5.0 , great screen and I'm sure a greats camera.

Btw everyone keeps looking at the photos posted taken with the XZs not the premium, the XZs does NOT include...
The newest EIS technology, and new bionz processor that is included in the XZ premium.

The XZs is an upgraded XZ.

kreislauf: wow. almost 1000 fps? very cool

Plus you can put a 256gb memory card in it and make it the highest capacity phone out. Pretty simple.

NovakM: Impressive.
However, battery life on my Z5 is not. Hope they improve that aspect. Also.... 0.18 seconds recording time means you have to have Ninja like reflexes to capture those precise moments.
Still nice to see this tech being pushed in smart phones.

The z5 has one of the worst Snap dragon flagship processors made. The 810 was really not a good processor. It was not energy efficient and also over heated alot.

princecody: iPhone 7 killer 🤔

Most flagship android phones beat the iPhone 7/7+ in the camera department. The have for 2-3 years now.

princecody: Monochrome sensors? True or False?

The 20mp one is mono

Well...i have nothing bad to say about this phone. The CPU is highly efficient and the GPU Is a mali g71mp8. Which beats any android currently on the market. Large battery, good lower power screen, looks to be a decent camera set up and expandable storage.

Contra Mundum: It's not a bad lens, just soft, suffers from spherical and chromatic aberrations. But why is it priced so high? An optically better Canon EF-M 22/2 retails for $249, and was often available for $100 grey market.

Because no one wants to buy an M camera. So the market demands low prices.

RJ68: Not surprised and can only add my personal buying choices to others. Wages have remained flat since 2008 but that news clearly has not reached the ears of Japanese camera makers who ramp up prices regularly. Exchange rates do not reflect their price increases either. I don't supply sympathy to world-wide brands that choose to manufacture in well known earth quake zones either. Keep your admin there but move your tech out. A sensible decision.

Finally when we look at almost any source of photography news that clearly shows professional photography is in decline, in favour of candid shots captured by all on phones, and you can see the camera makers have taken on a fight with the rest of the world they cannot possibly win.

Hence why their phone business is making profit.

They are one of the few companies making money with their phone business besides apple and samsung.

Sarah Terra: If only a "DXO mark" provided any indication whatsoever about lens performance, and had a verfiable, repeatable image comparisons provided.

On a side note,

I rate this lens as 14 flappy jacks, which puts it in the same league but just ahead of the samyang 8-16mm and the Canon 85mm f1.8

Confused yet? me too.

Hear hear! 14 Flappy Jack's!

daqk: This is 7 plus not just 7 right ? ... lol

They have the same wide angle camera(1/3.0 sensor size). The plus just has that crappy 50mm camera as well(1/3.6 sensor).

AbrasiveReducer: Since earthquakes are not unknown in Japan and the bulk of Nikon's business is cameras, one could argue that tying their fortunes to a single supplier (who also happens to be a competitor) was not very shrewd. What's the plan if there's another quake?

Alot of brands used to buy from Toshiba. Now they can not. Sony bought them.

great Javier: To be able to answer the question we need pictures of both lens to compare them :-)

Just put a thin coat of Vaseline over the mk 2, and shoot. You'll have the mark 1. :)

cdembrey: Both Canon and Nikon make stabilized 18-200mm convenience lenses—what more does the average snap-shot and vacation camera need??

BTW, if you are a landscape photographer who uses a Canon 5DsR, why would you need anything other than a Canon 16-35mm f/4 L IS.

Maybe astro landscape.
