noflashplease: I'm not sure I see the point of this camera body. It's like a X-T series but bigger and more expensive. Fujifilm seems to married to APS-C sensors and Medium format, but the future is with full frame. We've seen the future and it looks a lot like the Sony A7III.

@noflashplease

Sony's GM lenses are high-performance at high prices. They outperform Sony's Zeiss labeled lenses.

What Sony currently lacks is wide-angle primes, such as 21, 24, 28 mm f/2 or f/2.8 compact lenses that are more convenient for street shooting.

Now that the Sony A7-3 is out with a full frame sensor and fast/accurate auto-focus, the Fuji X-H1 is really nothing special. Its sensor is only APS-C size but the body is larger than the A7-3. The X-H1 auto-focus also trails far behind Sony A7-3.

And the price difference between the two is only $100. Unless you already have a few Fuji lenses, I believe most people will choose Sony A7-3.

Sony's aggressive feature set and pricing also spell bad news for Panasonic and Olympus.

As far as DSLR makers Canon and Nikon, they are also greatly threatened. The DSLR market is relegating to a niche rather than a mainstream market. It declined 22% last year.

pro photo 2011: Holy Sh*t.

The label on the P20 Pro's back says "Leica Vario Sumimilux-H: 1.6-2.4/27-80 ASPH".

The sensor is 1/1.7 inch and has phase detection auto-focus.

Predictive focus and motion detection.

zero shutter lag.

What will Huawei's upcoming Mate series look like?

You don't understand. The 28-70mm zoom is an optical and digital combination. The 28-70 range is continuous.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. There will be a flood of notched display in the coming months.

BeaverTerror: I'm a Fuji shooter but I'm struggling to see the value of this camera when compared to the Sony A7III. I'm not due for an upgrade yet. I'll be watching both companies closely over the next release cycle.

@col4bin

Zeiss Loxia, Voigtlander, Laowa, Samyang, Robinson, and Tokina. These are OTHER makers of lenses.

For street shooting, I need small/compact Sony lenses (for example, 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 28mm f/2 or f/2.8) that Sony's newest cameras (A7-3, A7R-3, A9) support fully. I don't care for any bulky and heavy lenses from any maker.

5k5: So the DSLR's sensor is turned off 90% of the time and that's bad. But it surely saves a lot of battery power.

I can't believe anyone would pick a DSLR because it is more economical in battery usage.

marcio_napoli: I rarely comment on mirrorless threads as that's often a gigantic waste of time. Really, who cares? I shoot with DSLRs and love it. Who cares if anyone else shoot mirrorless.

But there's an undeniable truth: this is nothing more than a spec chasing game, tailor made to make the spec-chasing enthusiast waste money with his GAS.

I mean, look at your portfolio. Where exactly has mirrorless made you a better photographer?

How exactly are your images any better?

This mirrorless thing is just getting traction because the average camera nerd is a never ending spec chaser.

Once their plain vanilla DSLR has lost the novelty (and to many it has lost it ages ago), a new toy must be found. A new way to play the game must be found.

It's all about tricking you into thinking there's something new that will change the game, but in fact it changes nothing.

A great photographer shoots amazing images with a pin hole camera.

BTW, I own mirrorless too (GH4, 100% dedicated to video)

The DSLR market has been shrinking each year. It decreased by 22% in 2017, according to CIPA.

There are just too many disadvantages in an DSLR. Mirror shock and noise, viewfinder blackout, camera bulk and weight, etc. Non-reflex is the way to go.

Steve in GA: I really wish the big gorillas in pro-am photography (Canon and Nikon) would institute in-body stabilization in all their cameras.

But, I'm beginning to think that the big guys believe that would hurt their bottom line, since people would not be buying their premium, stabilized lenses anymore.

Both Olympus and Panasonic have In-Body Image Stabilization, as well as lens optical image stabilization that work together. These non-reflex cameras are much smaller than DSLR type cameras and are very effective in IS.

Sony has almost no wide-angle primes. GM lenses are bulky, heavy, and very expensive. Impractical for street photography.

Alphaville: Good camera but A7III has changed the game in this price range. Superior AF, image quality are hard to beat.

I agree that Sony's A7-3 has changed the game in this price range. At the moment, Fuji still wins in the availability of wide-angle prime lenses which are necessary for street photo shooting. Sony essentially has zero wide-angle prime lenses, and its GM lenses are too bulky and heavy to be practical.

The Fuji X-H1 is also too bulky for an APS-C sensor camera. Olympus EM10-3 has 5-axis stabilization but it is so much smaller and lighter. This Oly is my street photo choice.

BryceM: I wonder what minuscule fraction of the R&D that Leica actually did on this "Leica camera" - I'm guessing the primary "engineers" involved from their side were marketers and business development "suits".

@cosinaphile

As I noted earlier, the "Leica look" is present on images made by the Huawei high-end phone. Images made by modern digital cameras are "digitally tuned on the fly" so whether it's a Leica M10 or a Huawei Mate 9 with Leica Summarit-H f/2.2, they are tuned by Leica to have that "look". I am not comparing sensor size, dynamic range, resolution, etc.

I bought the Huawei Mate 9 because I want to have a Leica camera that I can always carry with me. I take far more pictures with the Huawei than with my $4250 Leica Q, and I am happy that the Huawei Mate 9 can produce extremely sharp and well-exposed pictures that have the Leica look.

@BeaverTerror
You can joke and appear like a clown, but I seriously doubt you own a high-end Huawei phone that has Leica lenses. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a highly rated phone right up there with iPhone X and Google Pixel 2, with a much better cost/performance ratio.

@cosinaphile
Lookup what "Leica look" means online. It mainly pertains to its 3D appearance and warmer tone that is unique to Leica, and this characteristic is also present in images of the Leica-labeled Huawei high-end phone.

You'd be surprised how much Leica is involved. I have a Huawei Mate 9 and its dual Leica camera lenses perform so wonderfully well. Images are extremely sharp. There is built-in optical image stabilization. And the pictures have the "Leica look" that you also get on a $7,000 Leica M10.

@JanMatthys

Those who clicked "like" which numbered 20 so far are most likely DSLR owners. DSLR is going away much like the TLR, if you know what that is.
