ArnonT: For me, touchscreen is nearly useless as I compose pictures exclusively via EVF.

You may use it as a touchpad to locate the focus point while composing via EVF

Sony should have used Nex7's body design on this camera to differentiate from a6300. They rushed a bit I guess.

SETI: Thanks Sigma for your innovations! Hope they will finally invent their mega-hit camera

I think their boss said they don't want to have a mega hit camera. The company is not after big market share.

Marty4650: It is nice to know that Casio is still in the camera business.

According to the DPR camera database, this is their first new camera in over a year!!

Their market is mainly in Asia though. In particular those selfie cameras are well regarded (by pretty ladies)...

noflashplease: Do you really want to approach a lion with a 20mm equivalent lens? Apparently, Casio photographers have the audacity to sneak up on a lion at night. I'm impressed. What's next? A fisheye lens attachment for close-up photos of grizzly bears?

To be entirely serious, it's nice to see something different and far more original than yet another GoPro clone. Casio is being clever and that's just what a camera company needs to survive in the smartphone era.

Safari, they were in a car.

Everythingis1: I sincerely wish that one of these companies would perfect the curved sensor and associated lens design then release a pocketable APSC fixed zoom lens camera.

Get a Ricoh GR and zoom with legs or use cropped mode to 35mm and 47mm.

In reply to:

braisim: I don't understand why Sony don't just use the A7 family form factor for their top of the range APS C mirrorless line. It would solve some of the ergonomic issues of the A6000 family quite easily (e.g. viewfinder placement, twin control dials). The current A6000 form factor might be good for a consumer entry-level camera like the A6000 or the A5000, but surely not on a camera like the A6500 costing some $1400.

It is not entry-level styling.

It is just range-finder style, some people prefer it over A7 SLR style.

Some argue, for example, for street photography, range-finder style is better.

vesa1tahti: Why to spend $1200-2000 to buy any of these. Buy a D7200, and you'll have a state-of-the-art- camera for the next 5 years. Sure.

Olymguy, I agree that they are fast and good quality, but they are not for everyone due to the weight and size.

Nobby2016: --------------BREAKING NEWS-------

TOKYO -- Nikon plans to eliminate about 1,000 jobs in Japan, or 10% of its domestic workforce, as the company shifts resources away from once core businesses to medical devices and other growth areas.
The cuts over the next two to three years will mostly affect Nikon's money-losing semiconductor equipment operations and its shrinking digital camera business.
Nikon likely will offer early retirement to workers at facilities including its Kumagaya plant in Saitama Prefecture, northwest of Tokyo, which makes semiconductor lithography systems. Severance payments and other restructuring costs are expected to total hundreds of millions of dollars over two to three years.
Nikon is seen missing its forecast of a 64% jump in net profit to 30 billion yen ($287 million) for the fiscal year ending in March. Its net profit has fallen from a peak of 75.4 billion yen in fiscal 2007 to 18.2 billion yen last year.

Nikkei - ... Sales in the company's camera business dropped 30% in three years to 520.4 billion in fiscal 2015.

brumd, I wouldn't defend Nikon's poor effort like this. Try to find a Nikon FX 14mm f2.8 and compare the size and cost. All they want is ask you to get upgrade to FX camera.

No doubt D7200 is great on its own, Nikon's DX lens offering is rather underwhelming though. Fuji has excellent 14mm f2.8, 18mm f2, 23mm f1.4 etc . Nikon has only two DX primes.

On article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D40 (176 comments in total)

I had it for 3 years. I wished that Nikon would make a wide angle prime (18mm f2.8), along with their 35mm DX, this compact D40 would have been even more awesome. Eventually, I gave up waiting and sold all my Nikon gear. 10 years later, not sure anyone is still waiting for more DX lenses, in the meantime, the list of 18-xxx mm lenses has become even longer...

A beautiful piece of work though. Much prettier than any today's Nikon DSLR.

Germany was defeated too. I am not sure if I have ever come across any products manufactured post-war that indicates Germany was occupied.

PPierre: And yet, no WA prime for this incredible camera. The SEL10-18 is too mushy, the Sigma 19f2.8 is good but not a winner. I think I'll spend that cash on an A7II, though to me, this A6500 would be a perfect camera. It just lacks a WA prime that's worth the body...

This is one, I use CV15 ltm on Nex5n, you can find my recent posts.

The third version is heavy and pricy, if you only use it on Apsc , then the older two versions work well enough.
