raztec: I don't understand why most camera manufacturers often cripple or retreat when it comes to offering features in their new cameras. I guess most consumers aren't that savvy and will just buy the latest iteration of something thinking it's the best.

With weather sealing and a better viewfinder this would have been the ideal rangefinder style m43 camera.

So happy to see Fuji doing well as they have really managed to cater to serious photographers.

I think the internet is a great tool. If it is a stinker, and the manafacturer is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. It is picked up on very fast.

virtualreality: Sony and Nikon battling for 1st prize and Canon left behind. Who would have imagined that 10 years ago?

I think people are getting fed up with Canon. I know I am.
No matter what their market share is.

garyknrd: After owning and using Chinese knock offs I was with my sister in law and she had the new i-Phone X, I played with it for a while.
Honestly my thoughts were it was extremely overpriced compared to my Xiaomi, and way to heavy.
The whole time I was asking her questions about it and she knew nothing other than it was a i-Phone? She was parading it around like it was the greatest thing in the world.
I was thinking the whole time what a over priced POS..

Just finished my nap, feeling good.
She is out working trying to pay for the new paper weight! With bragging rights.

I will never buy another Apple product because of this. And I really like my MacBook pro. As soon as this one dies it is back to Windows.

Interesting times for sure.
With phones taking over the main photo market.
Enthusiasts are fueling the market.
IMHO, they are not stupid enough to buy into the rediculious advertising hype and the lac luster upgrades. I think most photo enthusiasts are smart enough to know what they want and are just holding off on buying. Waiting until the company deliver!

Good or bad, We will see. But, Broadcom is the Borg of the chip world. Qualcomm will be assemilated..

garyknrd: Just a Nokia name on the phone. A very small percentage of the profits I would guess. Nokia is betting on 5k hardware and beyond I think. They are sinking allot of money into it. Hopefully it will pay off for them.

Though I post some facts.
Nokia stock is dropping like a rock. Revenue is down, And the forecast is dismal.
Anyone holding this junk stock should sell now and lick there wounds.

garyknrd: As soon as 4/3 makes a good 400 F/4 i am in. Hopefully in the next year or two we will see a serious wildlife lens hit.

thx1138, 400mm F/5.6 no IS. and with a 1.4 T.C = F/8... = a big no for me.
100-400mm F/5.6, excellent zoom. Good IS, 560mm F/8 = no thanks.
I will wait.
IMO, micro 4/3 will mature enough in the next few years to take me into the next phase of my photography. Fingers crossed.

Also, I would like to know what you consider a "real camera"?

I have yet to see a bag designed for travel photographers. Not one. Does anyone know of a company that makes a good backpack that doesn't have such an obvious look. I make my own bags now. But it is a pain.

I googled it. Lovely photos, but DPR's definition of adventure travel is about 180 degrees of my definition.
