In reply to:

Archiver: This is the kind of thought experiment and comparison that I love to make, albeit as a way to dissuade myself from spending yet more money on gear. As I already have a X100 (original) and Ricoh GR, it's easy for me to compare them with other gear I have lying around.

GM1 + Pana 14/2.5 or Oly 17/1.8:

The 14/2.5 is a bit soft compared with the GR and even the X100, but has higher dynamic range and much more shallow DoF than a small sensor cam like the GRD series or LX7. The GM1 files respond really well in Lightroom, too.

The Oly 17/1.8 is easily comparable to the Fuji X100, IMO, and is a good choice if you want a m43 equivalent to that camera. It doesn't focus quite a close, but it completely lacks the soft glow of the X100 wide open.

The only issue is the handling, where the X100 sits really nicely in the hand and GM1/5 is small and a bit fiddly.

There is this very nice grip for gm1, I use most of the time, little less pocketable but it holds so well

medon78: The OOC JPEGs ain't so bad. But not really satisfying, either.
Seems kind of strange to me that after almost 20 years of consumer digital cameras not every manufacturer is able to get at least 90% of the "gold standard" for color rendition, be it either Canon/Nikon/Olympus/Fuji.

For most consumers a camera with really GREAT color rendition (incl. some sort of smart gradation / auto contrast) would be it. Just like Apple does with the iPhone...

Who really does care about noise-free ISO 51200? Or maybe even 4k video?
... IF the colors are so-so?

Fuji jpgs are lets say perfect. would put olympus in second place, panasonic has always had this strange greenish tone, but are much beter(neutral) now than few models back. At least how I see it :)

Daft Punk: By all accounts this camera will let you shoot HAND HELD for 4 or 5 seconds and still get a sharp image. This is remarkable.

For some people, That is worth the price alone.

Stop whining about the price.

I was about to say the same 4 to 5 sec with that new 12-100lens is simply amazing!

albert2014: im not suprised about the results of this test, although real life photogrpahy can be difficult to compare to a studio. i recently printed out some picture 13x19 inch to show to my friends. they were from a nikon d750, omd em1 and a canon g1xmark2. all of the shots were able to provoke an emotional response from the viewers. no one, including some photographers, were really able to tell which camera had taken which picture. they were all guessing wrong! It just goes to show that all these modern cameras are really quite good and a well exposed, well composed and well printed picture will be able to produce good results in the hands of any photo enthusiast. Some pros will need certain equipment to get specific jobs done but otherwise really any camera should be able to do the job for most of us who dont make a living from photography and simply love to take pictures for art form itself

well said sir, shame very few people get it

Rishi Sanyal: To take a step back from everything, Nikon is not stupid, and has at least realized the need for mobile integration, to force mobile users to CHOOSE their DSLRs over their iPhones.

That's what they're trying with SnabBridge - to limited success of course. But give this time. Heck, plead with Nikon that they instead choose to work with proper app developers to get this process of ingesting and curating Raws and JPEGs seemlessly from devices to content management systems embedded in all devices (phones, computers, web browsers), & finally even Joe Schmoe will shoot the shot of his kid with the D500, not the iPhone.

That's the biggest fight they have to fight. And Nikon knows this and are at least trying to fight it.

It'd be the greatest shame to see Nikon tech buried amongst survival concerns of cell phones and misunderstandings that don't understand that Nikon camera technology *actually* has something to offer that NO OTHER camera manufacturer has to offer at this level (AF perf).

and to do that we need a nikon branded WI-FI adaper that costs 700 bucks or something???

tommmee: I let go of my d800 and all gear in february this year for a Fujifilm mirrorless system that I had used for two years alongside my nikon setup. Month after month I reviewed raw file after raw file and found that side by side there was so little difference in quality and that in mirrorless I could preview all images before capture that the nikon system became inconvenient. And this was comparing crop sensor to full frame. The Fuji is so much easier to catch improptu moments as well as images with an hour of setup. I wish nikon would reconsider their reason for being and look at mirrorless full frame seriously as their future system.

thinking about doing the same ...
