piratejabez: Wanted the LX3, but waited for LX5, then followed up with LX7 and LX100. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the LX100 successor... what a great product line!

Its even more expensive have unsold cameras in a warehouse.

Back then they were considered Nordic rather than European; the latter was used for commonly closer countries like England, Germany, France, etc.

Not back then they weren't.

You guys didn't discover North America, the Vikings did.

arbux: "Autofocus, as you might expect from a contrast detect system, is quite sluggish. Not only that, it's also pretty loud." - ok, Fuji autofocus is apparently is years behind Panasonic G1 from 2008, that has fast and silent AF by todays standards.

But why do you justify that by saying "as you might expect"? NO, I don't expect that and no one should. Contrast detect AF systems are extremly fast, very accurate and in most cases dead silent (depending on lens and manufacturer, apparently fuji thinks sluggishness and noise add to "retro" appareal of the camera)

All other things being equal, a smaller sensor and the smaller amount of glass which weighs less, will focus much faster so it is not surprising that your Panasonic focuses quick...as you might expect.

Its not a competitor because it doesn't run OSX and its not a competitor since the MBP isn't a touchscreen convertible. However, it is a competitor for people who just want a laptop.

ABM Barry: I shouldn't judge this lens family, however, they look rather plain and rather agricultural when you compare them to Sigma, Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, Fujifilm and most of the well established makers.
There is no way on Earth I would pay their asking price given the competition.

Looking agricultural is a way of saying something looks plain and functional without much time spent on industrial design.

darngooddesign: Are these the APSC or FF focal lengths?

You're not being rude, to clarify my question. Will the lens with 35mm printed on it give the same focal length/angle of view of an APSC lens with 35mm printed on it or a full frame lens with 35mm printed on it. (which would approximatly be an APSC lens with 23mm printed on it). If these are just the Leica M-mount lenses then it would most likely be the latter.

The article also says Fuji, which is why I asked about my X-Pro2.

Of course I was talking about the equivalent angle of view.

So the tiny 35mm lens would be ~23mm on my X-Pro?

Tapper123: That's it? Maybe something interesting later this year.

Nikon developed the D5/D500 for the 100th but were nice enough to release them early.

cosinaphile: i can get the same resolution from mt pen f in hi res mode but it involves a tripod time and luck

The point is that thinking a high res m4/3 file is just as good as a high res MF photo means you don't understand the benefits of a much larger sensor. Beyond that, Olympus is a bad substitute because it has ugly artifacts if there is motion.

I can sample a RX100 file to 50MP in photoshop and get the same resolution as well.

arra: Fuji - why oh why there is no FF version :/
Still it's true and best mirrorles offer on the market at least till Sony'll announce new cheap A7 III FF body.
I also hope that Olympus'll (love Olympus colour rendering) dump this ridiculous tiny sensor format soon and bring something with normal sensor size - a true digital OM system.

Why do manufacturers put tiny full frame sensors in ILCs, when medium format is so much better? Arrange, if you are happy with your tiny FF sensor so be it, but it's just inferior to MF.

Full frame is tiny, medium format is where it's at.
