great Javier: What can you do with MF that you can't do with FF?

With a MF camera, I can call a 35mm camera a crop camera...

FantasticMrFox: And it's getting more and more DSLR like with every iteration - seems like it has slowly dawned on DSLM manufacturers that people actually want to be able to hold a camera without getting cramps in their hands, and that requires a certain size and decent ergonomics.

So what was the point of mirrorless again?!

Small lenses...

Size and price is the seller here. If I can get rid of my notebook and tablet and use this thing to transfer my photos from SD card to an external hard drive, I'm going to get one. Currently I have a notebook and a 8" android tablet for travel. I've been considering a Microsoft Surface, but the price is too high. Sure it's only 10 inches. But that means it's easy to pack into a messenger bag or backpack. I only hope it has an integrated GPS.

Perfect for people with aging parents who are not tech savvy. Too bad it's not available in North America.

The specs say the LCD screen 104,000 dots...quite the massive downgrade!

A better patent would be to allow companies to put cellular phones into silent mode automatically. Like in a movie theater or at a restaurant.

That lens seems really soft. Did DPR try a second X70 to see if better results can be had?

rallyfan: What nonsense. WHO is "everyman?" This thing is expensive and is NOT made in the USA. Why are we discussing this? Aren't there bags made domestically that one can use instead? (Hint: yes... Even this site's owners sell some domestically-made bags that are decent options. I don't recommend anyone shop there, but if you must, you can in fact buy a US-made bag even there).

You better change profeesions/hobbies since no digital cameras are made in the USA.

The specs say a fully articulated LCD. It should be tilting...

In reply to:

Mateus1: No, it's not GX-7 successor which was the best Panasonic mirrorless with a few isuues. GX-8 size and handling is dissapointing and GX-80 is poorer. After GX-7 Panasonic really dissaponts me with new releases :(

Amazing how you have handled a GX-80 before it's available. You must be the source of all these leaks about the GX-80.

justmeMN: $1,699 for body-only. Mirrorless enthusiasts say that mirrorless cameras cost less to manufacture than DSLRs, but that doesn't seem to be reflected in their prices.

Yes...because Fujifilm only sells one camera body...<rolleyes>

So does the IBIS only work in live view mode? I can't see how it would work if the mirror is down.

At least they updated the body to metal instead of the cheap plastic body of the A6000.

In reply to:

justmeMN: With only body-only pricing, I guess they assume that only previous Olympus owners will buy this camera.

Well, Olympus or Panasonic MFT owners...

In reply to:

belcanto: Where this camera will shine like no other is in style . To me it is obvious that the leatherette can be changed, by olympus or third party dealers and this will make the camera really stand out from the crowd. Just wait and see.

Sounds like a camera a hipster would like to pose with. But then again, a hipster could pick up a Fujifilm X- series and be in style for a LOT less money. Sure the Fujifilm system doesn't focus as fast as Olympus, but since some people prefer style over function it doesn't really matter!

bakhtyar kurdi: I will buy one when the price drops to $280 Canadian after 8 months.
I see no reason to replace my a6000 that I paid only $329 Canadian (open box) for this toy.

Why even replace your A6000?

rapurimanka: I honestly don't understand what's the point of such camera? Cost is almost the same as in good nikon/canon DLSR, but have weird viewfinder, small lens park, strange ergonomics.

I find it weird in Nikon/Canon DSLRs to not have a live histogram in the viewfinder.

Link | Posted on Jan 25, 2016 at 12:25 UTC

Finally a possible replacement for my ZS3/TZ7!
