0k, so this confirms that iPhones are bit overpriced?!

my cons:
proprietary charge port
no headphone jack
no wireless charging
more closed ecosystem comparing to Android
high price

I find Canon colours one of the best, however not with this camera it seems....

ProfHankD: Very impressive lineup to develop so quickly. I just wish it would be more feasible to use 135-format SLR lenses with it -- because for that size sensor it should be possible.

is it even possible with a shutter built in the lenses?

radissimo: I am interested to test this FE 85/1.8 vs FE 55/1.8 in crop mode on A7RII

OK,for people who cannot read between the lines:
I would be grateful if somebody owning both lenses could do comparison of this FE 85/1.8 vs FE 55/1.8 in crop mode on A7RII. TA

inspiron530: It looks a kind of big to me.
Q: what is a point to use a small and lightweight mirrorless body?
A: so that I can use huge and heavy lenses. :)

"Despite the complex optical construction and high standard of build, the lens is relatively lightweight, weighing in at 700 g (1.54 lb)."

and now FUJI offerings seem quite expensive for what you get. IMHO..

I am wondering how this nice lens would do on A7RII in crop mode?

As a big fan of 40mm-ish in FF- I am interested.
It might be better balanced and have IS.
Any thoughts? Thanks

akjos: Major downfall is ergonomics. While specs are impressive im really disappointed fuji didnt redesign the body of the camera. I had xt10 and xt1 and they just were not comfortable in hand. You cant make DSLRish style body ( again) and but same subpar front grip on same annoying as hell strap holder that constantly pokes you into your palm between thumb and index finger , same ( or very similar) thumb grip and worst of all put shutter button on the very top ... if as much thought went to body of the camera itself as did into its guts it would have been amazing.
Shutter button is in unnatural place just like first sony a7 series was. ON TOP where you need to constantly twist your wrist trying to reach it comfortably :/
Front grip needs to be beefier and shutter button more forward like panasonic gx8 sony a6000 or a7II etc.
I had lensmate thumbgrip thing on my xt1 and while it made it little better it was still quite uncomfortable to hold for longer periods of time = not enjoyable to shoot with.
Too bad as I loved the lenses....

..and TVs were black& white ,small boxes

"dial operation and touch operation are completely different, so combining them could be confusing. The typical way of shooting with X-series cameras is with your eye to the viewfinder, and to use a touchscreen you’d have to take your eye away from the finder."

thankfully Panasonic doesn't think so

I heard there is focus peaking implemented, so wondering what MF legacy lenses we can use on Sigma Q-SD ?

I know there is a Sigma SA -M42 adapter.Any other options?

pacnwhobbyist: Perhaps there is some sample variation going on but I would say that I don't think the lens on the G5X and G7X is as awful as its made out to be. It's not consistently sharp and I don't dispute that the Sony's lens is sharper overall (although one would expect that given its shorter range) but I have pixel peeped on the G7X and found the results decently sharp in a variety of conditions and focal lengths.

Where I DO find myself in agreement is regarding the lens on the G9X. I think it's pretty lousy overall and noticeably less sharp than the 24-100 lens on the G5X/G7X. Granted the G9X is only $400 right now in the US but you're better off spending that on a refurb G7X for just a little bit more.

but if you want truy pocketable camera, the G9x is the best choice then
