Shrinking sales? Seems like a trend with all brands.

tkbslc: As much as I like chromebooks, this doesn't seem like a particularly viable product.

Chrome OS is a lot more secure than Android. Yes it is a bit more limited without a web connection, but it is a great OS alternative for more people than you'd think.

Shame it is only for Verizon service. Seems to tick a lot of boxes for a lot of people otherwise.

"We understand the frustration. And that's why we need to still create AMount cameras".

Hear that Milvus, Otus, Sigma ART, Tamron SP? You too Mitakon 85/1.2...

It's ok... it's safe... release the ALL the hounds for AMount fine EVF system and larger ergonomics. Your great glass is best suited on AMount than anything else. Buyer waiting here. Hate using my Otus on tiny a7 series.

Still doesn't mean there is enough customers....

tkbslc: That's a shame. Competition is good.

Yeah, I think that's a bit different because those are mostly software driven designs that use the commodity hardware to run. I can start up a new networking company by coming up with a great idea and programming it in my basement on $10,000 worth of hardware. If I want to build processors that compete with Intel, I need $10,000,000 worth of equipment just to get started and a few more zeros to become a major competitor.

That only happens if the smaller companies have a significant competitive advantage in technology. Because the larger established companies will already have a major advantage in economies of scale and distribution.

coldcut: But what does Sony want when buying Toshiba? Patents? Knowledge? Technology? Production capacity? Market shares?

Probably assets, employees and contracts. Sony already has superior R+D and tech.

The bigger Sony gets, the less likely a startup will challenge. Barriers to entry and all that jazz.

RichRMA: Cameras are soon going to have a very uniform output, governed only by sensor size and lenses. Hey! Film IS back!

I remember a lot of film options.

In reply to:

tkbslc: I'm getting more and more interested in the GX9 the more I see it. Truly a compact camera.

@Markol: It's the combination of the size, BSI sensor, wi-fi and the fact that I'm not a huge fan of Sony JPEGs.

You are right that it is basically a warmed over RX100 though.

justmeMN: Large sensor compact cameras are the future. MILC Dinosaurs are just so behind the times. :-)

I already switched to a m4/3 from Canon. It's a lot smaller, but still not small enough to just throw in my jeans pocket and head literally anywhere with the family. I left it home on my last family trip and used our phones. Maybe that's the answer as the pictures were good enough for the scrapbook and facebook.

I've been waiting for a compact that can make me forget about a lens kit, but it hasn't happened yet. I hope you are right.

If I start worrying about ergonomics, then I'm just going to rationalize my way into bringing my GX7 anyway.

Edit: And oops, I said GX9 above and not G9 X. Must be muscle memory from typing GX7 since I own that one. I also blame the camera brands for all having to use some variation on X in all their model names!

tkbslc: Saying you can get the same or better quality from a print lab for less is like saying JPEG is just as good as RAW. Printing on your own gives you ultimate control just like RAW does.

I would bet outsourcing your RAW editing could be beneficial, too. That's not really the point.

I wasn't necessarily advocating for this specific printer, just the notion that printing at home is unwise.

In reply to:

Mark B UK: Looking at the body and lens prices, and the specification, it seems to me that Panasonic and Leica have crafted a carefully-designed stupidity tax. I'm not paying!

Even if Panasonic designed a lot of this camera, I don't know why you'd place any blame on them for the "stupidity tax" as you put it. They wouldn't price a Panasonic branded item like this.

That's all I was saying.
