@Aroart: ISO3200 is not needed for my list (you are welcome to use it on yours). I've never used a setting that high - on any camera I've owned, nor would I need it now. Truthfully I don't need 4K either. But yay, it has it, so that's 1 less thing for little snowflakes to cry about.

I would get the [other brand camera] with the pixel shift tech, 4K Video, Articulated LCD, 60fps shutter, and IBIS... oh wait...

De Fotoman: Am I the only one who thinks this is one ugly camera?

No. I'm sure there's another person out there if the same opinion. I am not that person however.

Still better looking than the Sigma dp# Quattro, Pentax K-01, or Fuji X-Pro2.

In reply to:

ozturert: So is Apple going to sell Esc key, only for 29,99$?

Why do you need a key when there is a touchpad button in the upper left corner labeled "esc"?

Greg7579: I love this camera. It is absolutely stupendously incredibly awesome. If you are a Nikon or Canon FF guy -- just hold this camera and take one image with it. Then stare at it for a minute or two.... If you are a professional sports shooter you will no doubt hang onto your FF gear and big lenses for a bit longer. But whenever you are shooting anything else or walking or traveling anywhere, you will go out the door with the XT-2 and those magical FX lenses. That I know. Happened to me and so many pro's I know.....

@Darkerlight, I'm glad your RX1R II worked for you. I know it could not have worked for me. Nothing like that would have worked for my Moab hiking trip, my Jackson Hole/Yellowstone trip, my business travels to Montreal & Washington DC. It's because of these and many others, that I shoot Mirrorless. It's small when I want/need it to be but still versatile. But to each their own, like I said one focal length isn't suitable for *everyone*.

@Darkerlight
Being stuck with only one focal length is not ideal/suitable...for everyone - regardless if you are trying to go as light as possible.

NowHearThis: Nice! The NEX-7 MKII. About time. Minus the Tri-Navi, but ops for Fast AF and a Touchscreen, both were things my NEX7 desperately needed.

And that's fine with me, that's all I really use the touchscreen for on my E-M10.

Thorgrem: So the A6300 failed as a popular successor to the A6000 and gets replaces in 8 months.
They now just ad in body stabilization (which is nice) and raise the price extensively. This won't do sales any better.

I think Sony has lost it's grip on the non FF mirror-less market.

They added a touchscreen too, which people have been griping about for years - myself included.

mmrezaie: This camera is perfect for me only if there was a way I could find a quality prime around 24mm like the 23mm f2 of Fuji. I am looking for something very light in that zone.

The Zeiss 24/1.8 is great, but pricey ( probably 2x the cost of the Fuji. )

Yeah, didn't make sense to use a drop-in filter.

sonics: Looks like a great lens, but gone is the compact m43 format:

You forgot to post this view:
http://camerasize.com/compact/#660.545,594.613,hd,f

Also I doubt that 18-135 canon lens will equal the optical quality of the 12-100/4. It also starts at 29mm not 24. Back when I shot Canon the only APS-C lens worth getting was the 15-85 and while it's a little shorter than the Olympus, it's also even heavier. Canon shooters ought to spend just a little more and get a better lens.

In reply to:

sknai16: Is anyone seeing that the MFT company that promised smaller cheaper and just as good components now is supplying more expensive lenses than most anyone in the market? Go figure. I'm back with Nikon.

@Photo_AK, The problem is that Tamron lens has poor results for Chromatic Aborations, IQ drops pretty dramatically after 100mm and needs to be stopped down for best results - and even it's best results are still "just OK" (according to reviews). You can have your big beasty FF camera with mediocre glass superzoom, I'll keep my E-M10 and throw this great piece of glass on it instead.

JEROME NOLAS: Big, heavy, expensive. All I asked is sharp12-50/60 constant f4, short, light weight, rasonably priced...where is Sigma & Tamron when you need them?

This lens is actually lighter than the Canon 15-85 IS lens I used to own and with a more useful focal range. Add in the nice close focusing, great build, supposed great IQ, and you have a great lens IMO.

tobicy68: This would have been big news if it wasn't over shadowed by mirrorless medium format...

And they are sooooo close in price.

As I count it, 8 new lenses have been announced for M43. Most look like really nice offerings too.
