Looking forward for the 5dsII... 50mp of improved sensor sounds yummy.

The more competition to the Sony RX100, the better for us humans.

tkbslc: It seems like real world that the G7X lens is much more ideal if you are going to shoot pictures of people. It is a lot faster at 30-45mm equivalent for street style shots and then has a lens that actually extends out to the portrait ranges with the ability to give a little bg blur.

The LX10 has much faster 24mm equivalent only, and that seems more likely to be scenery type shots that could just use OIS to compensate anyway.

RX100 loses to both for aperture and range, but probably has the sharpest lens...

its crap at the 70mm edge.

Is it possible to take RAW photos with an Android phone, like the Samsung s4?

Too contrasty.

Iamnotarobot: I guess there is nothing really special about his cameras because most of his creativity came out of his extensive/obsessive darkroom work. It could be said that he was the father of photoshop with his obsessive level of selective dodge & burn & image post alteration/manipulation...

the word obsessive doesn't seem right...

Combatmedic870: I would consider this camera if it had a less compromised 24-90/110/120/135 2.8 constant or 2.8-3.5 lens. I've always disliked 24-70 lenses due to lack of range. I don't care about the whole 1.8 at the wide end thing.

I have the rx100-4, i have never used the viewfinder. its so small and fiddly, its close to useless.

itaibachar: This body design is useless with action/sports. The Nikon D500/Canon 7D is so much better. Sure the low weight is nice, but handling is p&s level.

its a toy. a box for sony to test technologies. it sucks as a camera body.

nathanleebush: Love my Mark IV, but the 3 stop ND filter makes no sense for video when their S Log 2 mode starts at 1600 ISO! a 6/9 stop makes more sense so you can achieve shallow depth of field outside. I find that the 3 stop means I'm still shooting video at F13 and having highlights blown! Come on Sony, think! NDs are for filmmakers, filmmakers shoot LOG, LOG starts at 1600 ISO, so 3 stops is too weak!

I tried it, graded it (duhh), and it is useless.
just my opinion.

JSmitty: Why, in God's name, do they not put any sort of grip on this thing?!

Agree, its a pain to hold/handle as is.

the Slog at 1600 is grainy as hell - unusable.
its just a marketing propaganda.

Corkcampbell: Does the camera have an ND filter? How about a time limit on 4K? Perhaps I missed it, but I didn't find the info in the above narrative. I have the M3, and use it mostly for video. Apologies if I just didn't read the info close enough.

there's a built in ND feature.

Daspletosaurus: Somebody at Fuji product planning has really done their job. Really smart move. The APS-C and 35mm FF markets are saturated, whereas the low-end MF is fairly untapped, and I bet you the margins are going to be higher. The Pentax 645 is pretty much the only incumbent. Hasselblad had the same idea, but I actually think Fuji will have the initial advantage due to better lens selection at launch. Plus, unlike Hasselblad, Fuji doesn't have a higher-end product line to protect so they can go all out with later models.

Yes, only the 10K price tag is killing my enthusiasm.

Oly needs to rethink their naming strategy.
It used to be OM-1, 2 etc.
Now its a weird bunch of letters and odd numbers.

rsf3127: No post asking for a pancake 0.95f prime lens or a 10-300mm 1.8f zoom so far. Weird...

Give the folks 1-2 weeks and it will start...

magneto shot: rightname would be "C-medium format" or cropped medium format since that is what it is. its nowhere near the size of medium formats as reference in film days.

Its a cropped MF, the name is not there yet.
Anything bigger than 35 is MF? how about a 38x26, is that MF too?
MF starts at 6x4.5.

itaibachar: Looks like a big Instagram toy... and since when is 44x33mm medium format?
It's an "APS-C" MF, with "aps-c MF" lenses...

Anything below 6x4.5 is croped MF, and at 44x33 its far from it. It's just the words describing the thing, Im sure its a great sensor, But out of respect to the format, theses cropped sensors don't get to be called "Full Frame" MF, just cropped MF.
