Favorable Exponynt: Pick up a cheap Nikon 1 AW1 Dude. It's a no brainer and you can take it on your board with you.

i own a AW1, i shoot surf, and i do not recommend it, its nice for a beach vacations, but thats it! and yes, they leak, i lost an SD card in the Philipines because of leaking...

if you wanna shoot surf in the water the best solution its a surf dedicated water housing with a pistol grip from brands like Liquid Eye, SPL, Salty...

Donnie G: Now that Nikon's DL line of fixed lens compacts is officially dead, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Canon produce a trio of FF fixed lens cameras to pacify the FF mirrorless crowd. I would wager that two of them would sell at the same price point as Canon's upcoming 6Dm2 and the third would be priced at the 5Dm4 level. And no, they wouldn't be called PowerShots or EOS Ms. They would have their own entirely new branding.

Why FF fixed lens cameras instead of FF mirrorless? Lesser costs to develop and manufacture and no worries about EF lens incompatibility issues, plus they would be more compact than their FF DSLR cousins. Win-win for everybody. 😎

well, you already have a FF compact with a fixed 35mm in the market

snapa: I'd rather see Sony announce a few more high quality native APS-C E-mount zoom lenses and updated pancake primes myself :-/

@rick , are tou talking about the recent DxO review, were they say that its the sharpest 70-200/2.8 ever tested?

BigBen08: What, can't Sony build lenses?

Check out the DxOMark for the lenses they tested, you'll be surprised by the top 15

Craig from Nevada: Basic black works for me.

Ford never said that, they offered the model T in different colours, but not in black

rfsIII: Awesome. Except for the fact it's a Microsoft product which means it will come with a ton of bloatware, be taken over by ransomware as soon as it is connected to the internet, have an overly complicated and unnavigable UI, will crash at the worst possible times, and Microsoft will offer its usual "blame the user" non-support. Apple, for all its many faults at least has a base of users who are somewhat helpful.
Microsoft: Beloved by IT managers, hated by users.

dude, you're not in the 90's, windows 10 its a joy to use

ramsomware?? really? i use windows since the 3.1 and never had a problem with that, virus, trojans or anything else, comon sense is your best friend.

Marty4650: If you really want to get your bag stolen, just place a huge sticker on the outside saying:

"Warning: This Bag Contains $18,000 worth of Camera Gear. Any Pawn Shop Will Gladly Give You $3,000 for it"

if you didnt read this article and you saw that bag you wouldnt relate it to leica, you only see the red dot if you are looking for it!
other camare bags scream more "expensive gear inside" then this ones, any think tank, lowpro, tamrac... etc.. even the cheap ones, are more indiscreet!
my Ona Prince, in black canvas, donesnt look like a camera bag at all, it looks like any other bag

Ona Bags dont have any branding on the outside, and the leica editions only have a small discreet red dot on the buckle, and dont look like camera bags

Favorable Exponynt: seven lens elements just like my 80 dollar Jupiter 9 F2 which is also a sonnar design.

the Bugatti Veyron has 4 wheels and a combustion engine, the Fiat Punto also has that

Zeisschen: Wow, those specs come really close to my old NEX-7 from 2011. The dinosaur in the house awakens! 10-15 more years and Canons mirrorless can compete ;)

if its a solo 22/2 equivalent that you want, you'll probably be better with a Fuji X100, same lens, smaller package, better built, cause i'm sure you dont want the other 5 kit ) lens in the Canons lineup... im just saying this because when you buy a camera you buy a system, and Canon dont have a sistem yet

@sfracerdaniel and Canon offers nothing like the 24/1.8, 28/2, 35/1.8, 50/1.8, 16-70/4... you have 34 Sonylenses for E-mount and a dozem more from third party, how many has Canon?

cosinaphile: looking over the comments , im reminded of my impression on using these snew sony full frames , a menu nightmare with poor controls poor placement , and unpleasant aesthetics for a whipped cream topping

to me these almost great cameras are hobbled by a design team and control design team that have created a frustrating appliance , rather than a camera , in the manner of a washer dryer that never seems to carry out your wishes no matter how simple , the direct control of fuji is lightyears ahead ... but somehow lacks the grace and form of a ricoh camera with menus to make any shooter smile

You only have to push one button to change to APS-c mode, just program it in the mode dial (mode 1 or 2), you just have to learn to use the camera, has i told you before, Sony cameras are highly costumizable

The menu problems again... The A7 series are very costumizable, you can assign lots of funcions to almost every buttons, you just have to spend some time on the first time to fine tune it to your taste!

You only have to dive in the menus to do specific stuff, like formatting a card, etc... But how often do you do that? Sony menus are also more extensive than other brands cause their cameras have more features

And the look... Well, the Fuji are better looking, that's for sure, but the Sony beats any SLR any day

pelikansalat: Did they license the protocol used for the communication between body and lens like Zeiss or did they reverse-engineer it like Metabones?

its not open source

cute lens, but who was the guy at Canon that woke up one day, looked at the 4 kit zooms and the solo prime they have and tought: what we really need is a slow macro prime with a built in flaslight!

i sai it again, cute lens, but was it a priority?

Jonath: Equally as interesting as AF, the press release suggests these are new optical designs too. MF Sony-E Samyang lenses were essentially DSLR versions with an extension 'tube' built on. Suddenly we have three options at 50mm(ish) for FE mount.

there were lenses made specifically to mirrorless and E- mount, like the 8mm f2.8 fisheye or the 12mm f2 but they were all APS-C

In reply to:

Ayoh: Looking at the optical diagram, the housing seems overly large for the element size. Also I think the classic older angled Zeiss body style is much more appealing this new strange funnel shape all the new Zeiss lenses have

its a ultra wide lens, the housing have to be large so when you put some filters you dont have vigneting

Solar Climber: Great enthusiast camera that lacks an APS-C lens lineup. It's like putting a chevy cruz suspension in Z06 covette. I'll pass.

the new D500 or 80D are also great cameras, but they also lack an APS-C lens lineup
