Mateus1: I will buy GRIII if it had:

1). Build-in EVF or external EVF
2). 23mm F/2 lens (35mm FF equiv.) + 2 converters: 16mm & 50mm (24/75 equiv.)
3). WR
4). 24MP

It sounds like the upcoming X100 replacement model will satisfy most, if not all, of your requirements.

mcshan: The RX100 IV is great. The larger LX100 is a really good camera. For those that don't mind not having an EVF this camera might be a nice addition. Tough to say without knowing more about IQ.

For those willing to trade the RX100IV's pop-up EVF for a 2/3-stop faster lens (at wide angle), and save a few hundred bucks, this is a great option. I believe this is the only camera on the market that gives you 24mm (equiv.) f/1.4 in your pocket.

abortabort: It looks rather 'chubby'. It's weird but all these 'in development' mirrorless announced today look like they have gone away and ate nothing but McDonald's. Where the A99 II is looking that bit slimmer and trimmed down, it actually looks almost slim and elegant. Will these meet in the middle of portly small framed person and slim and trim amazonian?

Probably some of that added bulk is for heat dissipation to deal with 4K and all of the processing power.

Mateus1: Why it's so ugly? Really clumsy shape. Like Zenith from Russia.

I agree - I find the GH3/GH4 body more appealing. This has some awkwardly-resolved contours.

DDWD10: I'm confused. I see 6K photo but is 6K video officially supported?

I see. I guess we'll see the big jump straight to 8K video with the GH6!

Androole: Absolutely killer bang for buck.

$999 for weather-sealing, 4K video, 5-axis IBIS, no AA filter, no shutter shock, and a weather-sealed 24-120 equivalent lens? Does anything else come close?

Agreed, this will be a solid video platform for those not wanting to spend the big bucks on the upcoming GH5.

As a Pentax K-5 IIs APS-C shooter, I'm seriously considering going to M4/3 for the speed and video capabilites, but the still image DR is keeping me from pulling the trigger.

f/1.4 on a 1" sensor is appealing... Clean, wide angle pocket astrophotography.

This does make me wonder what Panasonic has planned for the future of the LX100 though. It never had a real direct competitor. The LX10 is more clearly meant to go toe-to-toe with the RX100 series.

DDWD10: An awful lot of dead bezel space around that LCD panel...

No, the expanse of black plastic around the LCD itself. The folding screen could be much smaller, allowing for a larger thumb grip and possibly more direct controls.

I love this. It's incredible to see what were once carefully-configured 30sec+ exposures captured live as video.

In reply to:

Angrymagpie: What's a bit disappointing is how none of these images showcase the new software-based shallow-depth-of-field technology. Could this mean that the photographers didn't think it is well-implemented enough?

If you watched the Keynote, they were pretty up front about how they were still refining it. They showed some sample shots that looked pretty promising, though!

That functionality won't be available for a few months - Apple is still tweaking it.

Nindy: Why do we have to buy the big phone for all the good stuff, why can't they offer it in the smaller size at a premium, we all don't want plus size

To be fair, the benefits of the Plus's dual-camera setup are only realized when shooting telephoto beyond the 28mm wide setting. At wide, they both use the same 28mm f/1.8 OIS module. This could not be said for the 6S, where the Plus was the only way to get OIS.

I like the model that has the flash that pops up at an angle.

offertonhatter: I still have it's forebear, the S5000. Occasionally I still give it a run out for fun.
Ergonomically it is still great, shoots RAW and even though it is 3MP, produces surprisingly good results. Shame Fuji don't produce a modern version.

It does have good ergonomics... rubberized grip all around the camera, great EVF relief, etc.

I remember my S5100. It had a nice, fast (at the time) 37-370mm f/2.8-3.1 zoom. Great colors and snappy operation. Downsides were a wobbly lens barrel, no IS, and limited high ISO options, but that was typical of the era. I would say it's the first digital camera I clicked with, before moving to a proper DSLR.

On a whim, I bought a cheap Fuji S20 Pro on eBay. I have to say, the ability to pull in highlight information from those DR subpixels in RAW is impressive. I'd wager that its dynamic range rivals modern 1/1.7" sensors easily. Fun to play around with, and great colors too.

Ugh. For a split-second I thought I was, at long last, seeing a firmware announcement for the LX100.
