  • @Cane: "Once it needs a bag, might as well just take a dslr at that point."

    Not really. There is a huge, huge difference in size between dedicated DSLR holster case (to fit DLSR with a kit let)...

  • > because you can adapt older lenses to it.

    AF generally doesn't work with the adapted lenses.

  • "The lenses are the 'equivalents of 70-200 f4 lenses. NOT f2.8 lenses."

    Obviously the article about APS-C lenses is written for the APS-C shooters. For APS-C shooters, they are not "equivalent",...

  • > To compete with FF [...]

    Why anybody would compete with a niche product? FF are small niche. APS-C market is much much larger and the manufacturers are competing for the piece of the large pie.

  • > Image stabilisation No
    > Autofocus No

    When it comes to Zeiss, I'm certainly missing the appeal.

  • No. It has the look of Panasonic LC1 from 2004.

  • No. It has the look of Panasonic LC1 from 2004. Almost precisely same look, btw.

  • @Mike, "Check again, and find out of the supporting data..."

    Not going to. Financial reports are boring as hell. Finding the articles with quoted analysts takes too much time.

    Last report I have...

  • Cont'd.

    Samsung, compared to Japanese companies, is a different bag of cats. Samsung is known to mercilessly kill off the units which are not profitable. If NX would fail to gain desired market...

  • @Mike FL, I think you exaggerate and twist things slightly. Last time I was checking analyst columns, there were no word on imagine businesses at all. Cameras, as consumer products are highly...

  • "As for lens, Samsung is getting fairly complete if you ignore the exotic ones."

    No mirrorless system at the moment has the exotic lenses. (I prefer term "specialist lenses".)


  • "So Panasonic is Magnesium and Leica Aluminum? Or is that a mistake."

    Probably it's over-simplification for advertisement.

    Sole magnesium and aluminium are rarely used on their own - most of the...

  • Leica made the camera less usable - they have removed the grip.

    In my book, worse ergonomics should have lowered, not increased, the price.

  • Yes. The "standard" zoom range - 24-70 - sucks. That's why actually most "new" standard zooms now go up to 105-135mm.

    But at least the lens has the 24mm eq FOV. Once you get used to the 24mm, it...

  • People should watch the DPR's Pana interview about the LX100 and pay attention to the description of the "collaboration" with Leica. It matches pretty much all previous official statements about...

  • You see it now?

    This Leica is so cheap because it has the old model of the red dot - the non-invisible one.

  • "...and what is the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (1799$),"

    Sorry, forgot to add "expensive to me." I do not mind that enthusiast-level cameras in general are more expensive.

    "Expensive to me" means that...

  • NX1 is good but expensive.

    I want to see what of the tech would trickle down to the NX400 and the NX3000.

  • NX1 is good but expensive.

    I want to see what of the tech would trickle down to the NX400 and the NX3000.

    What chances are that Samsung would do a low MP (e.g. 12MP) BSI sensor for the entry...

  • Samsung stands to gain more from implementing the H.265. And Apple. Because that would give either of them a (short-lived) competitive advantage in the mobile market.

    But the traditional video...
