Jefftan: lightweight and cheap
20 megapixel latest generation sensor

This is what MFT camera should be
Look at what direction Olympus and Panasonic taking
Professional
which translate expensive and heavy

I still can't figure out how can they brainwash people to accept
professional and last generation sensor

Yeah you are 100% right:
New Sony A6300 almost twice the price of A6000.
New Panasonic G80 much more expensive than G70.
No more Pansonic GM1/5 GF7 cheap successors.

Olympus only recycled PL7 parts in a new ugly body

NAwlins Contrarian: I cannot see spending $699 or buying a 'serious' camera that doesn't have a built-in viewfinder. Yes, this is cheaper than the RX100 Mks. III and IV, but the limitation posed by the lack of a built-in viewfinder is, IMO / for my use, a 'swim, swim, and sink at the shore' proposition for what is otherwise a very appealing camera.

Long lives my RX100 I I bought 2013 for 450€... this price range is a thing of the past... they let the people shooting with their phones instead of offering a reasonable priced alternative...

sansin: Still waiting for LX100 update with tiltable touchscreen.

It would be like twice the price

Link | Posted on Sep 20, 2016 at 05:53 UTC

And again: way more expensive than the predecessor...
And what replaces the FZ1000 in its price range???
It's like buying an iPhone for 800€ and next year they charging 1200€ for their improved model...
It's ridiculous...
Camera maker don't want to produce affordable cameras anymore.
Their target market seems to be only enthusiasts who are willing to pay more than 1000€ for a camera. Let the others shoot with their phones...

Mike R Jackson: I purchased a Tamron 150-600mm last February and used it with both a Nikon D800 and a Nikon D4. Not long ago, I upgraded to a Nikon D810. My Nikon dealer suggested I try a Tamron. I was hesitant at first, especially knowing how satisfied I was with my Nikon lenses.

I live in Jackson Hole, WY and go out almost every day of the week and take photos of the wildlife and scenery in the area. Each day, I post a few of them on my blog at www.bestofthetetons.com. Each month has a completely new set of photos from that month.

Even though I own a Nikon 200-400mm lens, I've had the Tamron 150-600mm on either of my two bodies almost exclusively since February.

Here's a link to the October Daily Updates and Photos: http://www.bestofthetetons.com/2015/10/01/october-2015-daily-updates-photos-for-grand-teton-national-park-jh-a-monthly-journal/

The same page has a set of links for all of the previous months.

You might enjoy seeing the lens in action. Mike Jackson

Amazing!!!

ecm: Lol! An almost unknown Chinese camera maker, a total newcomer to the m4/3 world, gets the 20MP sensor, but Panasonic's newest m4/3 cameras do not? HUGE black eye for Panasonic! I am waiting with great anticipation for Olympus' next consumer camera - if it has a 16MP sensor I'll bet it costs them dearly.....

Olympus E-PL8 - 16MP... there you have it

Maklike Tier: Companies are missing on how to 'lure' the smartphone shooters. It's all about the ability to share the image, so the process from taking the shot to sharing it online should be as seamless as possible. Nobody has come even vaguely close to this sort of functionality, and this camera just adds to that list. I can see people buying one of these on price alone just for the 20mp however.

Yeah Sony has the Apps...
I tried the Sony Alpha A5100 and sharing photos is a nightmare LOL

dpfan32: A price increase compared to the G7 is ridiculous.... cameras keep getting more and more expensive!
And than they are crying about everybody using cameraphones instead. This camera should be priced the same as the predecessor.
Technical improvements over time should not meat higher and higher prices.

I don't know anybody who buys a camera instead of a phone. The phone with nowadays good camera you have anyway.
Look at the price difference Sony A6000 vs A6300... maybe the want to milk early adopter with this ridiculous 4K with awful rolling shutter and pointless 30fps where slight movements getting blurred and gone is the 4K resolution.
Panasonic released reasonably priced G7 which got the crown for budget 4K camera and now they playing catching up Sony prices... no thanx, not many customer will play this game beside tech nerds with GAS

princecody: Why Not 20mp sensor?

No new 20mp sensor to keep price low!?! There is a significant price bump from the predecessor G7.
This camera is dead for me with this ancient sensor ...

Nothing... I looked only at the sample photos here..
I could never afford such a camera just questioning the price/performance ratio...

Too dark....
Could anybody explain relation between fast lenses and exorbitant high costs?? Why only slow lenses are affordable?? This is damn bad for the average Joe with tight budget....

I mean... When I do Pixel Peeping the details look like from an APS-C Camera to me... When I look at images from a Sony Full Frame there are so much more natural details in the 100% view you could easily crop without any hesitations... On the Canon 5D IV you see some artifacts and pixelation like on a smaller sensor.
I'm not a Sony fanboy, Sony colors ar meh to me, I love Canon and own a 100D (also a Sony RX100 due to lack of competition, G7X is not a competition unfortunately)

Yeah... It's all about zoom and Xenon.
There are some much better phone cameras out there like in the Nexus 5X or Samsung Galaxy phones....

Instead of buying such an add on I'd rather take my Nokia 808 with me :P

TN Args: Are you guys owned by Facebook? Are we going to get a stream of "Look what you were shooting 5 years ago today" articles?

5Dc in Germany is from 300-500€
A 760D is 699€
A 80D is at least 1000€

I don't get your point....

SimenO1: Interesting historical comparison. I trowed in the Rebel SL1/100D in the comparison just for fun and see that both resolution, noise and DR are better on a 3 year old APS-C camera then with an 11 year old FF camera. That gives some perspective on sensor improvement versus sensor size.

I don't see th SL1 to be any better in sharpness or ISO than the 5D.
And how did you managed to select the SL1 in the DR comparisons?
It does not exist in the list...
I can only select the 700D which is worse than the 5D in terms of DR (though the SL1 has a much better sensor than the 700D, DXOmark).

I own the SL1 and considering to buy a 5D ... Does it make sense?

Still some working 5D out there sounds not very confident in terms of the life it the old lady. Does it make sense to buy one used?? I want to go FF but cheap.

Most potential buyer would be interested in longer battery life than zoom...
