  • 50mm is my favourite focal length but I prefer autofocus and a bit lighter for a lens I'd use most often. Also, I'm saving for the 17.5mm nokton f0.95 (35mm ff equivalent).

    • Great prime lens, interesting
      but I'm expecting the 60mm macro + nauticam housing
      difficult to cut our kitchen budget again for this toy

        But there is Ikea in Kazachstan!

        Manual focus and heavy weight would drive me crazy now, but very reasonable price.

        • Sony has upgraded the NEX-3, the C3 has become the F3.

          This brings the camera very close to the NEX-5N for $600. Electronic Viewfinder is still very expensive: $300.

            Samsung introduced the NX210. It has a Wi-Fi mode and is slightly faster at continuous shooting. As the predecessor Samsung NX200, it does NOT have an (external) viewfinder option. What a shame.

            • Nikon 1 J2 is the successor of the J1.

              Besides the fact it's $100 cheaper and available in orange, there is not so much news under the sun. The biggest disadvantage is still the small sensor. But it has a good auto focus and is fast in continuous shooting... I guess now it's waiting for the V2.

              • Now this is a big surprise: A new Sony mirrorless full frame (with a fixed lens)!!!!

                • And there is a NEX-6 around the corner.

                  • Can't say this camera can be grouped into mirrorless like NEX series
                    it's compact for FF, but not very compact to put into your ppocket
                    It's not cheap, USD 2800,
                    not sure the market target..
                    the RX100 is more attractive

                    • And here frm 4/3 rumor

                      http://www.43rumors.com/olympus-and-...greement-soon/

                      so next, interchangeable lens between Nex and m4/3 ?

                      Comment


                      • Yeah the Sony FF compact sounds like "we do it because we can" kind of thing. I would have loved to see a FF sensor in something like the X100, something truly designed for street photography. This Sony cam is lacking a viewfinder, especially at that price.

                        Anyway, Photokina starts today in Germany with a lot of announcement coming up from Olympus and Panasonic in the m4/3 department among others.

                          Yup, Oly officialy release the 60mm macro at lovely price USD499, much lower than my guess.
                          can't wait to grab it.

                          The next that i "expect" Oly to announce the firmware upgrade to control the limiting range set - this will be very good news for UWP.
                          The have released the V1.2 upgrade which allow to select UW mode wide and macro, where the lens will lock at 12mm and 50mm respectively.

                          • [COLOR=#333333]Olympus officially released the 60mm macro at the lovely price of USD499[/COLOR]
                            But I saw that the black version of that lens is a more expensive 'special edition'? Weird.

                            Anyway, it seems the OM-D has a real competitor now (besides the NEX-6 I guess):



                            And it's a FujiFilm again.

                            Must say it's a beauty too. But not the black version.

                            • And for those who are not interested in detachable lenses but want a small size camera with a big sensor:



                              What a cutie, and available in different colors.



                              This is the info on the sensor:


                              Of course, in that arena but with detachable lens, Olympus also announced a smaller PEN, the E-PM2. Now that could be an interesting, eh... 3rd? camera. It has many of the OM-D specs and can share lenses of course.

                              Not bad with for a camera only slightly bigger than a Nikon 1 (with a sensor twice the size!).

                                Among m4/3 system, OM-D still the best - but not against Nex7 and nex5N,
