Earlybird29: The bodies of the Olympus and Panasonic “pro” cameras are now so big together with their pro lenses that I’ve finally decided to ditch my Olympus EM1 MK II and pre-order the new Sony A7R III to get the FF advantage of much higher image quality. After spending the last 5 years with M4/3 and being constantly disappointed with the IQ even from their pro lenses I’m done with it. I also have the FF Leica Q and the different in IQ between M4/3 and FF is like night and day. My gear is going up on eBay and I won’t have any regrets. Sorry folks.

When you unbox your new Sony camera you will realize that it even hasn't 1:1 aspect ratio. Your GAS will never be satisfied with new camera systems.

I think it will only work for objects in short range. The infrared light pattern send out by the phone will not be strong enough to reach objects more far away.
Will it be possible to create out of focus bokeh?

Thanks for this very interesting article!
One advantage that you didn't mention is that when the camera dies the lens can live on. My loved Sony Rx100 just died and the whole thing is gone...

nerd2: "The optical design is said to minimize vignetting"

"bokeh produced by the FE 100mm F2.8 STF OSS GM, which it says is improved by the use of an apodization (APD) element"

"An apodisation element is simply a radial neutral density filter (that gets darker towards the edges) "


Probably a typo, they mean darker towards the center

kewlguy: A perfect travel camera with 18-55 and an extra battery.

I wish fuji would offer a pancake zoom like the panasonic 12-32 or the sony 16-50. If they add that and a proper HDR bracketing I will switch.

What firmware updates do I need in order to have the optimal AF speed? Just the latest body firmware or also a lens firmware?
I have the A7 with body firmware 3.1.

Applaus to Nikon for both the 18-50 and the 24-85.
This may be the successor to my RX100 mk1.
What I miss is a dial for changing apperture, like f.e. LX7.
The dial on the back is awkward to reach.

108: Sometimes when I see those 1" cameras like this Canon or the Sony's RX100's I just feel like buying one , put it in a belt pouch always available for good quality snapshots during the day, sell all my M4/3 stuff , and buy FF for serious low light photography , and that's it .

I think exactly the same.
The RX100 is so close to MFT in image quality and compactness that you need a FF to notice a big step up.

DP review is putting there good reputation on the line.

An "Oh Wow" headline would be OK if it were something revolutionary and groundbreaking, like the Sony A7, RX100 etc.

maxnimo: This camera is a great idea, but since I will never in all eternity ever get an iPhone I will never in all eternity ever get this camera.

the "two" will be more compatible. I wish it would be possible to change the connection plug.
The idea is brilliant. Imagine if you could have something like a mft 25mm 1.8 in this form factor.

I would rather prefer a lens that goes to 100mm like in the mark I and G7X.
4K is completely uninteresting to me. I dont have the hardware to handle, archive and view such big film files.

I am really impressed - what a good balanced cameara. Go Leica !
Although I have to onestly admit that I will never ever bye one for this price.

The 50mm crop mode will give only 12MP, right?

Wow, the camera that does it all !
Now they only have to come out with some more compact primes and I am on board.

" What's more, it will also offer effectively the same light-gathering capability as an F2.8 lens on full frame. By this we mean that it will be able to project an image that's just over twice as bright onto a sensor that's slightly less than half the area, meaning the same total amount of light is used to capture the image."

If I understand Tony Northrup right it does not have the same light-gathering capability as FF 2.8 at the same Iso. There will be more noise, right?

Why oh why didn't JK make a "smart MFT lensmount" that plugs into the smartphones? They seem to have all the technology in house to do so. Then they would have something unique.

Woe, cool. Did you make it your selv or did you order the grip and skin someplace?

Disappointing ! No AEB bracketing that is good enough for HDR ...
My LX5 can do -+3 EV

If Fuji had continued with the Nikon mount they wouldn`t need a roadmap.

Raist3d: Nikon got the size right. And no AA? Sounds interesting. But 28mm is not my preferred focal length.

You mean 42mm FF
