99tollap: This won't have the best image quality, but it will probably be better than any other lens of its type. Tamron worked wonders with the 28-200 so I expect them to do the same here.

If they would do something cheaper than the Fuji 16-80 i'd be more interested than with this superzoom. I'm no photographer, just someone who takes holiday and family pictures so I kept the 16-50 kit lens until now. The Fuji 70-300 paired with a compact travel zoom ranks higher on my wishlist..if only I can afford it.

Jer81: Fot this two; I would go X-T30. For the ecosystem. Nikon hasn't made much Z mount APS-C lenses and few are in the roadmap.

I think the E-M5 line is the better retro camera line. Retro design and modern controls. The E-M5 Mark III is a beauty and also very capable camera with lot's of modern features.

CaPi. The Z50 was announced in the fall 2019 and still nothing interesting as for Nikon light/compact DX dedicated lenses. I kept my D40 for 9 years but couldn't wait anymore for a compact Nikon MILC so I went for the XT-20 in 2017 and I'm happy with it. The reasons I didn't upgrade yet is because i'd like to maybe go back to Nikon (Z50or Z fc) but the lack of DX lenses makes me want to wait a bit more. Would a new iteration of a Fuji XS10 have more controls, then it would also be a strong contender for me (because of in-body stabilization and decent grip).

A rotative Gatling-style motorized lens adapter, so you'd just have to hit a Fn button to change lenses and maybe a lens wiper/washer too, please.

Now, seriously, new DX lenses and I could come back to Nikon (I got a Fuji X-T20 in 2017 and I'm happy with it, but didn't stay with Nikon just because it took you so much time to offer something as the Z50)

Catpaws: I like Sony gear (so please don't tell me I'm a Sony hater) and still have some but never bought one of their cameras.
Why? When I do like a camera I want to use it for very a long time without interruption (as for my Nikon D40 kept for 9 years and My Fuji XT-20 is nearly 4 years old).
As I experienced Sony fails after: phone 4 months, ebook reader 3 days, TV 3.5 years, earphones 5 months ....... and the usual repair duration was about 8 weeks, don't want such to happen with my camera.

Mr. Oddie, I din't comment negatively about Sony cameras themselves, as - just like you said, I don't own one.
I just mention the fact that my bad experiences with Sony products in general have consequences on my final choice of a camera even if I find Sony cameras very attractive.
The background of this article being a defect of a Sony product, I feel entitled to share my thoughts and feelings about Sony products that reflect on my choice of a camera.
If you still are of opinion that I am in no position to place a comment, well, that's your opinion .....
PS I own(ed) Chinon, Olympus, Nikon and Fuji and I assure you that Sony is still on my list when I consider changing my camera, so who knows?

Kuzmabrik: I hope that X-S10 is not a X-t30´s successor and they will announce X-T40 soon.

I would really like to see a X-T40 coming with the X-S10 grip and stabilization to replace my X-T20. I don't feel any urge to go back to PASM. But I still miss the grip of my Nikon DSLR.

Catpaws: For the "Year of the ox". we made a lens that will prompt any ox to come right at you for a very close shot (probably your best and last one).

Thanks for the explanation. I like to learn.

For Leica? A typo in the article, maybe, didn't you forget a zero at the end of the price?.

That one was my second camera and first experience with a powered zoom. Didn't last long though ... had me learn that zooms don't like sand.

A decent grip, in-body stabilization, fully articulated screen in a smaller, lighter and cheaper body than a X-T4.
Just what I waited for in a X-T40 to replace my X-T20.
Could whine at the viewfinder and battery life that are the same as the X-T20 but not really a big deal for me. I'll even be able to reuse my 2 spare batteries.
Maybe I'll regret the speed dial but we'll see.
I'd also like a replaceable eyecup to get something better suited for me (I'm wearing glasses).
Yepee.

My first "own" camera was a Chinon 35F back in 1979. Built in flash and basic light meter with three zones (over, OK, under), what a luxury. I used and loved it till its end.

jdu_sg: If this review gets continued, I'd like more discussion of how it works for stills, especially compared to the gm1/5

I have a Fuji XT-20 with the 16-50 kit lens since 2017. Pana GX 85 was my second choice. Very happy with the Fuji but lacking a (relatively) fast and very light zoom with a reach about equiv. to 24-120 like the "Panaleica". Before, when using a DSLR, the backup has always been a Panasonic compact, now it's my smartphone. Doesn't mean I won't get a Pana in the future.

Me too. Could make a super light decent "holidays camera" combo with the 12-60 2.8-4

Given the volatile nature of clouds, it shouldn't be a surprise.

I do use cloud storage but still have two drives for backups (one internal, one external), just in case.

I replaced my D40 with a Fuji X-T20 in 2017 but if Nikon did an adapted version of the 16-80 DX, the Z50 could become my next "holidays" camera. Well, maybe the fact I never was as fond of any camera as my D40 makes me partial ..... even if the Fuji is great.

These researchers will soon be sued by VW for Copyright infringement because they used a "Beetle" without prior authorization.

Or my X-T20

Remove the screen and controls from an Olympus Pen or the like and replace it with a slot and contacts to attach your phone ....

I'd really like to have that deeper grip on my X-T20.
