Jefftan: What is really improved from mark IV
look the same to me

Anyone know?

I agree there is lots of upgrade form mark IV mostly in video
for someone care only still, mark III is the same

The best pocket camera is Ricoh GR II
not this

Or get a Panasonic GM1/5 with 14mm F2.5 pancake lens
or get a A5100 with Sony 20mm F2.8

there are lots of tricks like slow motion video
but bottom line in terms of IQ , it is a very small sensor camera

Should thank Canon M5 for this
People complain after 8 months, A6300 is replaced
Actually this is not Sony original plan, if no Canon M5 there will be no A6500 now

maybe in 2018 not 8 months
Thanks Canon, competition always nice

Paul Petersen: At this price why not spend another 200 USD on an XT-2 that is weather sealed, and has an amazing lens system and control layout.

even same price why would I want XT-2
5 axis IS !!
This is a big deal

This camera also weather seal too

Speechless, called me a fanboy
I can't find any fault
to me a perfect camera

As perfect as a APS-C camera can ever get (unless one day a new sensor type to replace Bayer)
lightweight with all features one can ever wanted

What more can one ask

This really is a dream camera to me
most amazing is only 404 gram with in body 5 axis IS !!!
with touchscreen

$400 above A6300, price is a bit high
but consider only APS-C camera with in body IS and without
adding weight, it is worth every penny

Should appreciate Sony at least make that available
if price too high for one can always buy a cheaper A6300 or A6000

A milestone camera for APS-C mirrorless camera
Also remove one the the top reason to use MFT: in body 5 axis IS
Olympus and Panasonic should be worry

$1400 A6500 vs $1700 A7II
Isn't a $300 price difference too low?

A full frame IQ should be way above APS-C
I am aware A7II no 4k but for still IQ, it should be much better

People use iphone just don't know enough or don't care picture quality

even 1 inch sensor greatly exceed it in IQ
Canon G9X only 200 gram , Panasonic LX10 300 gram
all with real zoom
anyone with slightest interest in photography no reason not carrying a real camera

sick and tired hear the constant iphone talk
those are for people who are NOT photographers
a person using iphone should be ashamed to called himself a photographer

Jefftan: "many GR lovers, it's a very emotional attachment. That's why we need to listen to customers about where we should go.』"

Most wanted in order of importance
1. Weather seal
2. in body 5 axis IS
3. brighter aperture like F2
4. wider lens like 24mm
5. 24 MP copper sensor as in A6300

Please Ricon, #1 most important, give all of us (the whole photographer community) a large sensor weather seal camera

For landscape 28mm is most narrow that can be accepted
even 30mm too narrow. I am surprised many often mention 35mm
They are for certain not landscape photographer

24mm even better but I can tolerate 28mm
any narrower not suitable for landscape

Just the sensor alone is worth the price (the Chinese original price) even if the camera is just functional

If it is decent than it is crazy value

Look at China price of this and think about how overprice Olympus/Panasonic camera is
Either they make unreasonable profit or their cost too high

dansclic: I would never buy from a company who copies Apple and puts non removable spywares in their smartphones. Ethics is important.

With that logic u can said all smartphone including Samsung copy Apple

So can only buy Apple phone.

In reply to:

Jefftan: I think Yi just killed the 16 megapixel MFT camera
I am sure from now on Panasonic and Olympus would not dare to put 16 megapixel sensor even in their cheapest camera

expensive one like the new g85 with 16 megapixel is a joke
When they design this they probably not aware Yi M1 exist

now they probably regret doing so. Seeing how much this M1 cost, they are really cheating their customer using an old sensor on new and expensive camera. Even E-PL8 is a rip off, G85 more so

All MFT people should thank Yi for killing the stupid old 16 MP sensor
Thanks XiaoYi, sincere thank you from me

"Hmm, such "stupid old 16 MP sensor" gave me superb pictures now for years on my Oly EM5 and continues so until today ;-)! "

U can say 10 years old camera give u superb pictures with 8 MP ( or 5MP who knows) too
The fact is good enough doesn't mean wanting something even better in a NEW camera is wrong

Panasonic/Olympus know that too and make u paid Pen F/GX8 price
People should really thank Yi for bringing 20 MP to the mass

MFT before Yi is becoming ridiculous when entry level APS-C is 24MP
yet many believe the Oly/Pana BS that 16MP is enough

Told u the truth, my 2011 NEX-5N is better than my 16MP GM5, It is actually very good not just good enough
So I will never need to buy a new camera because 16MP APS-C is good enough?
Doesn't make sense
