"Samsung pulled the plug on the Note 7 entirely, stopping all production and marketing of the device." -DPR

Will there be fire sales on the remaining Note 7 inventory?

US$1,000 for a camera that only has a 1"-type sensor. Meh.

[Slide 5] So, Sony *still* doesn't have a fully functional touchscreen.

Strange.

Apparently, Sony recommends their 16-70 as a "kit lens" for the camera. That lens goes for $US1,000.

No 8K, no sale! :-)

So, the body is US$1,400, and the depicted 16-70 "kit lens" is an additional US$1,000?

Tonkotsu Ramen: Incredible!

Canon should be extremely worried, as this just obliterated the EOS-M5

The suggested retail price of the Sony a6500 (body only) is US$421 higher than the Canon M5, so they aren't direct competitors in the same price category.

Sonyshine: Are you watching Nikon?

It is possible to make new cameras that people want and which they will buy.....

Nikon 1 isn't exactly a sales leader, :-) , but Nikon continues to have a much larger ILC market share than Sony.

A new-better kit lens would be a nice addition. I don't see that mentioned, so far.

For those who missed it:

"Two notable features from the D3300 have been eliminated. The first is ultrasonic sensor cleaning - time to break out the sensor swabs. And, where the D3300 had an external mic port, its successor does not." -DPR

Proposed Nikon Advertisement: New degraded model! Now, with fewer features!

Richard Murdey: I don't think Nikon, Canon, or Pentax were all that interested in Photokina. They made a convincing impression of not being interested at any rate.

Canon and Nikon announced their flagships DSLRs before the Olympics.

PhotoPlus will give Nikon another opportunity to not say anything about their missing DL line of cameras. :-)

justmeMN: What's the big DL?

It's strange that Nikon had DL mock-ups in January, but have none in September. It's almost like an "unannouncement".

Nikon's DL delay press release:
http://www.nikon.com/news/2016/0420_cpx_01.htm

@thejohnnerparty: "Unlike Sony's Cyber-shot RX100-series, the DL18-50 and DL24-85 offer touch-sensitive rear OLED screens". "We have high hopes, too for its autofocus system which is inherited from the 1-series (and shared with the DL18-50 and DL24-85) which combines 105 phase-detection and 171 contrast-detection AF points..." -DPR

@Yossarian1: Agreed! In April Nikon wrote "The new release date has yet to be determined and we will announce the information as soon as it is decided." Still, no release date announcement.

"those orders could take up to three months to fulfill as Sony expects the lens to popular and that demand will out-strip supply for some time." -DPR

Yup, at $3300/$2600, every Sony camera owner will buy one. :-)
