This will have a good side effect that we can expect to see some camera stores that stock real cameras. It is so difficult nowadays to physically see a camera unless it is in BB or big box stores.
And even if one likes them, there is the temptation to buy online.

No reason BB (and likes) should be a show case/trial room for online retailers!

I didnt know there was enough of market for film nowadays! Nothing is great about film except nostalgia.. and I have used it in 80, 90s and early 2000s.

I found the images soft... but maybe it is the dpr photo viewer. After a few days will check on Flickr. Same with the video on GH5, not really impressive.

Timmyonedot8: Video from my Canon T7i with kit 18-135 STM Lens looks about 1000 times better. That video sample looks downright atrocious. I was shooting better looking video on my iPhone 4.

Yes, Iphone can also do a good job

How does the lens mount to the camera, it is firm and accurate? Specially at such low focal distances of around 5 mm, even a slight gap or out of alignment would affect the quality.

Jhaakas: if sensor size does not matter, why do most people don't just ask their friends with smartphones to photograph a wedding, anniversary, graduation party etc....
if they were close to FF, we should expect to see at least 5% pro photographers using smartphones!

A small sensor is always a small sensor and behaves exactly like a small sensor!

If you want to be a pro, you need to deliver a step beyond what the consumers normally have. A person who owns an apsc is more likely to hire one with FF and larger for an event. The limitations of apsc will also show up, m43 is close to smartphones.

(unknown member): Links later..but this new Tamron lens for Sony..has a major Flaw..Auto Focus. Will not Auto Focus..several you tube reviews have all had the same issues. Failure to Auto Focus.

@CareyRose.. thanks for the confirmation. Seems like there can be some exceptions!

K1000usr: BTW, I wonder if in the end her favorite zoom lenses (24-70 and 70-200 mm) likely neutralize her 'light weight camera' argument. These are big and bulky lenses after all.

@bjphotolabs
Thanks for posting these numbers.
There isnt that great of %age difference in weights (~10%) as the lenses weigh the bulk.

That makes me think is there really any advantage in Sony's smaller size!
It is still the only mirrorless though

I thought that the front-focussing issues will only be in SLRs ..in mirrorless I suppose we dont need any AF adjustment as the same sensor is used for AF and image.

Not sure if there are any pro photographers who use m43 even though there is good lens availability etc .. there might be a few using apsc

Alex Akay: On a recent trip to Thailand, I had both my Note8 and my EM1 Mk2. I had many great pictures but the only one I thought worth printing came out of my Note8 in Panorama mode. I printed it Poster size and the people of printshop could not believe it came out of a "phone". Nevertheless I still cannot use my phone to shoot wildlife like I do with my 300mm (600mm equivalent FF). So in summary both have their places in photography. It's true that the best camera you have, is the one you have with you. In that respect Phones definitely have an advantage.

It ultimately comes down to individual's taste and if it can be satisfied by a small phone, why not!

entoman: The average tourist, who wants to show a few photos on social media or make small prints, may be very happy using a Panasonic for wildlife photography.

But, I doubt that any "serious" or professional wildlife photographer (other than someone being paid by Panasonic) would consider doing so.

Wildlife is often photographed under poor lighting conditions requiring high ISO, and that requires APS, or better still FF, in order to keep luminance noise within acceptable levels.

Fast and often unpredictably moving animals and birds are difficult to frame perfectly, so many images require significant levels of cropping - and that requires more megapixels than Panasonic provide in their current cameras.

The only real advantage of using an M43 camera for wildlife is that the cameras and lenses are very compact, which makes them light and easy to carry and manouevre.

Agree.. these photos are closer to a PS camera than a dslr. Nowhere near a FF. Yes, smartphones are lightweight and can give 1000 mm equivalent as you keep cropping!

It needs to be compared in the same m43 category.

Nice video.. however it is more about behavior, how to photograph wildlife etc ..
Would have liked some details on the camera, lenses some shots. BTW the still shots are good however you sure can get much better from FF cameras.
The dynamic range, colors, sharpness - overall IQ is not that impressive, at least in the video. Also, no reason to post focal lengths in "equivalents" like 400mm. A 200 mm focal length is always 200 mm.
The only convenience I see is the weight factor.

The Fuji with IBIS is heavy, most Pentax are heavy and that is where I feel a sturdy frame is needed for IBIS, This adds weight, cost and size - like my Pentax K5II. It is very useful if you have non OIS lenses.
However , with Fuji, there are options for OIS lenses and we gain in light weight, small size and low cost. This is a trade off I am willing to take!

I own a camera with IBIS and although it is very useful for non stabilized lenses, it requires a heavy metal body. Also, one can always use a tripod for those long exposure shots.
And there is OIS giving +3 stops so IBIS is not really a must to have.

Link | Posted on May 25, 2018 at 18:44 UTC

A very nice option from Fuji!
I was looking at Sony 6300 but for some reason like colors and lens availability on Fuji.
The 15-45 seems apractical range. I own a 18-135, mostly miss the wide angle below 18 but rarely go beyond 50mm.. I am sure to get 50% weight reduction on body+lens compared to my current dslr.

I would have preferred though usb3.0.
Also.. hoping that the high iso looks good at least till 6400

tom1234567: What's the point of being top
if the lenses Sony produce
Are way overpriced and there not all that good compared to the likes of Fuji
Only pro photographers can afford Sony
the thousands of amateurs are just priced out of the Sony market
Above is just my opinion

People who have a good lineup of lenses are not going to but a lot of lenses.
Newcomers need to be attracted and given a choice.

sceneIt: Can Sony do this?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1roDgJ2QM4

To think about it, a dslr that can do video with mirror up can behave like a mirrorless; yet for some reason it flashes the mirror to take a shot!
DSLRs Just cant get away from old technology
