Peiasdf: If only Leica offers such service. The Leicaman might actually have some artistic talent.

If only CaNikon offered such privileged service to their flagship models...

If you want a retro look, dig up the blueprints from the 50's (What Fuji did apparently)
I'm sorry, but the MX-1 looks like it's designed by a committee.

SETI: I'm Russian and I don't see any word about interchangeable lens. Image says that camera has 3x zoom lens.

I've seen fake lens release buttons....look at the Canon SX40 HS

Agreed.

On article Just Posted: Sony Alpha SLT-A99 review (498 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: Sony made a big gamble by dropping the OVF on all their cameras. A top level pentaprism OVF will always be the state-of-the-art, while in one or two years time, the A99 EVF will be old technology, superseded by new models. Just ask Fuji X-Pro1 users how they felt when the X-E1 came out with a higher specified EVF.
So perhaps one of the negatives of adopting an evolving technology like EVF is an increased need to upgrade. Whereas a 100% OVF of a 5D3, D800 or A900 will always be about as good as it gets.

Each has it's own advantage, an EVF is very good for most uses, though I get dizzy when I pan with the NEX7, and I don't know if it's just me, but my eyes get very tired.
The biggest advantage of EVF IMHO is the ability to "see in the dark"

rusticus: without a "window" on the front of the camera is ugly - the classic style is broken. . .

It looks blind!

qwertyasdf: Why is the X-Pro1 more expensive than the X-E1?
X-Pro1 has awful AF, and a gimmicky OVF

I've played with it, it's definitely high-tech....
but then theres the problem of parallax! and the EVF mode is like 256 color....reminiscent of computer screens of the 90s...haha

qwertyasdf: "delaying the introduction of its XF 14mm F2.8 prime lens by a month so it can concentrate production on the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 OIS"

Well...I bet the 14mm is gonna be much more popular!

Well I bet Fuji users are in a different demographic and are more inclined towards primes...

At $389, it's a very very expensive bag...
I love the idea, but i'm so used to swiftly remove a shoulder strap of my Kata 3n1 and swing it in front to take out my gear....

In reply to:

stopkidding: People often compare cost of m43 lenses with lenses for bigger format and assume smaller should be cheaper. In fact the converse is true. Because of the smaller sensor and denser pixel layout, m43 lenses have to be twice as sharp as full frame equivalents to resolve the same lp/mm at a given magnification.

It's harder to design a m4/3 lens than it is to design a medium format lens.

Stopkidding! It is a proven fact that compact cameras with excellent lenses are cheaper than DSLR + lens!!!!

In reply to:

Kodachrome200: I dont get these crazy expensive m43 lenses. Small formats should not be a premium format. These lenses cost more than FF lenses. thats nuts

Stop saying smaller lens should be more expensive.
If it is the case, compact cameras should be pricier than DSLRs
I once bought into the m43 system, left very quickly, stupid lens prices, and image quality not that great either
