If there is no Sony, there probably won't be 1 inch sensor camera
Which is a loss to all

if u want to travel light and have reasonable IQ, 1 inch is the way to go
I like Sony and no shame about it

all those hatred of Sony has no ground
it is the innovator in the camera industry and also supply the whole community with the most advance sensor

If I have to hate one company it has to be Canon
It is selling out of date technology to dumb public
it is killing innovation

May also kill some camera company that use money to innovate but no one buy because it is not Canon

There are many panasonic MFT lens that I like
From now on, I will buy more of these lens to support Panasonic.

I don't think it will happen but even if Panasonic stop producing camera
Panasonic lens can still be used on Olympus camera

I always think Panasonic lens better than Olympus especially in weight (which is why I use MFT in the first place)

Can only combine pics in low ISO (good lighting)
when in low light, already low shutter speed make combining multiple pics impossible

kristof93: Camera manufacturers should implement this sooner rather than later. Bit embarassing that a phone has better iq than few years old dslrs.

"With the image stacking tech, you'll find that they beat a lot of older entry level dslrs, even in low light"

This is BS. What DSLR are u talking about. My 2011 NEX-5N APS-C sensor if use DXO prime can have good IQ at ISO 6400 (even ISO 12800)
phone beat old DSLR even in low light?

Fujica: OMG - I see the same strategy as we saw with Samsung.
First denial and then all of a sudden the dismantling will take place.

What a shame the GH5 is such good camera.
But if it happens it will be a blow to the 4/3 format as the question needs to be asked. What future will this system have.

Technology wise they are reaching the limits of what is possible.
The pixeldensity is so small that diffraction is one of the biggest problems that this sensorsize is facing. Next to the fact that many people are currently upgrading to either APS-C or digital 35mm.

"My E-M10 was a step up from my D5100"

how is MFT an upgrade from APS-C

just regular USB thumb drive is waterproof
i have tried many times, wash under the tap
no problem

same for SD card, can wash under the tap
most don't know and paid extra

Even to this day, Panasonic 1 inch

LX9 fastest F 1.4 lens
ZS100 10X zoom

still the best compact in 2017

old question
APS-C vs full frame
MFT vs full frame

now FF vs MF
nothing new

piratejabez: Wanted the LX3, but waited for LX5, then followed up with LX7 and LX100. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the LX100 successor... what a great product line!

LX 100 has clearly been discontinued and no new model announced
than just like the GM MFT line can only mean one thing

They won't announce it officially. Yes is a shame buy I have heard LX100 is not selling well
Lost GM line is a greater loss in my opinion. That 10X zoom 1 inch is pretty amazing and can replaced LX100

marc petzold: I want this Sensor Size (1/1.63", 1/1.7") into a smartphone, as i said more than twice.
1" is too huge, only Panasonic did this, with mixed results. Current 1/2.5" to 1/2.3" sensors are virtually a bad joke in terms of IQ - and rely therefore on heavy asic-processing (JPEGs) inside the smartphone. DR, Tonality is also nothing great onto these very small sensors.

The LX3 was way good into it's heyday (the D90 came out into 2008, too) and the only real successor into my eyes since then is the LX100, but this model could use an upgrade (LX200) anytime soon....

early CMOS is garbage compare with CCD
but current APS-C , 1 inch, full frame CMOS seem to be OK

Aroart: Best thing about Apple is that they work, best thing about Samsung is awesome specs and are usually free after about 6 months..

Have u used Samsung phone
not work like u said?

I am not a camera phone person but the detail capture in my S6 pics sometimes surprise me
Only ISO 100 thought, not high ISO pics

for phone camera, Google pixel real time combining pictures show the future
don't seem to be as successful as Apple iPhone

eno2: What can you conclude from reading the article?

The Apple Iphones are hugely overpriced!

not a secret
they got huge margin, anyone don't know that?
Look at the stock price and Warren Buffet bought huge amount of stocks (not iPhone)

Jefftan: I never understand if anyone is slightly interested in real photography
a dirt cheap RX100 first generation get u a 1 inch sensor and 4 times zoom
weight 240 gram

use a tiny sensor phone?
Those are the majority and don't really care photography

It is correct that camera companies are targeting real photographer
but with the sad reality of increasing price to compensate for much lower volume
after all maybe 90-99% of people are not photographer

Those said they got a new phone because of how good the camera is
I don't know if they are real stupid or just joking

Another problem is cheap model don't really get promoted because that is not where the profit is
Sony is promoting RX 100 V which is $1000
almost no one know RX100 1 exist and cost $450

Or Canon G9X I now $400 G9X II $530 (new camera price)
Almost no one know these low cost option exist that is
lightweight, high IQ, have zoom, cheap

Really sad to see real camera is seen to be obsolete by most

camera company partly to blame as they only care expensive model which create short term profit
but they are short sighted as the current situation would threaten their long term survival

The cheap sub $500 about 200 gram 1 inch sensor is they should really promote if they care about long term
but I know that won't happen

"That may be true in daylight, low light phone photos are another story."

U got it, with DXO Prime the dirt cheap RX100 1st generation can get decent photo in ISO 3200 , try that with phone
also the 4x zoom lens

but most don't care real photography, that is a fact
