What - no hot shoe?

$5500 for a slow variable aperture zoom... and their prime lineup needs something wider than 35mm.

Krich13: Anything and everything just not to make a compact AF 35/2 that everyone (and their mother) wants.

Tamron makes a 35mm f1.8 with stabilization... not what you're looking for?

weisman: IBIS and a deep hand grip - nice! Now if Fuji could just offer a 200mm f2...

How about something really interesting like a 150-300mm f2.8? Fuji has an opportunity to deliver something crazy cool in the telephoto department (zoom and/or prime). Now that they have a body with IBIS, they wouldn't necessarily need to include lens stabilization which might keep cost and size down a little.

milkod2001: Throw FF 30-36MP sensor onto it then we can talk Fuji. With size of the camera that should not be a problem.

Sounds like you'd be happy with a Sony FF body.

"... if you already have either brand's lenses, you'd do just fine to stick with that brand's stills flagship camera."

I thought the whole point of the m4/3 consortium was to provide a common platform for compatibility among many brands, no?

weisman: Ugh, no RAW capture? Heck some phones are waterproof now. To differentiate a camera like this from a smart phone it needs to have some compelling advantages, and RAW would be a great option to have.

Even when shooting RAW files (with any camera as I understand it), the photo you see on the camera's display is actually a JPEG preview of the RAW.

Leica could have at least made this a "(Product)Red" item, to raise funds to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in eight African countries.

Tom Holly: Wow. My first hard drive was 10MB.

To think that this new drive holds more than 1000x times that!

My first computer stored data on an audio cassette... Timex Sinclair 1000, baby!

SELEES: That's a shed load of data lose when that thing crashes!

That would depend on the type of RAID; 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, etc.

Of course - thank you

Use Isolite with a Lytro camera and you can change the lighting AND focus after the shoot.

In the beginning people would say, “Fix it in Photoshop.”
Now we’re at, “Fix it in Photoshop, Lytro, and Isolite.”

All this adjusting after the fact makes my head spin. I’m used to getting it as right as possible in-camera, and I kinda feel all these options for post production just add to more hours at the computer.

Well this is either going to crash & burn, or this guy will get rich. Only B&W images... hmmm...

mristuccia: Fresh food for hipsters. Expect lots of Instagram shots of this camera on a table together with a cup of espresso and a paper notebook alongside. The posted text would be something like "Enjoying breakfast and exploring the world. #mypersonalworld #analoginspiration #worldtraveller" :D

@mristuccia - not just a paper notebook, a Moleskine notebook & with a freshly sharpened wood pencil.

Gmon750: I'm actually surprised they made as much as they reported. It's still a $1.5B company.

So sad. They are a prime example (just like Blackberry) that missed the most biggest boat ever and ignorance became their downfall.

@ZeBebito - Kodak did everything it could to protect it's cash cow - film sales - instead of moving ahead with digital. They made the first digital camera in 1975, but did nothing with the tech.

Don Strickland, a former vice-president, who left the company in 1993 because even then he couldn't persuade it to manufacture and market a digital camera, put it this way: "We developed the world's first consumer digital camera but we could not get approval to launch or sell it because of fear of the effects on the film market."
