p.1 #1 · Pick your poison


NEX system... where are you fast prime lenses? fa-real?
Fuji x-series, great autofocus if you're filming a snail race and even then, I bet it won't track well
Olympus.... Enormous cosmic power.... itty bitty living space (5 points to whomever gets the reference)
Canon M... Who was this aimed at? Awesome sensor, good size, ergonomics and control of a brick
Nikon....
Nikon engineer "Sir, here's the camera everyone wants."
Nikon Exec "Good heaven's boy, dont build that!, make the sensor small and make the controls awkward. And while you're at it, don't make a lot of lenses for it."


Am I being too critical?
Am I asking too much?
All I want is....
Controls, size, sealing and Autofocus of OMD,
Sensor of the X series,
Lens line up like Nikon
at the price of the Canon
Am I the only one?

Considering the fact that no one is ever amazed that a bunch of tiny little cells can convert photons to electronic signal and create an image out of it...I would say a lot of us take a lot of things for granted.

myself included....

Wait until this segment of the imaging industry gets out of puberty.

Things will be much clearer, then.

I suppose one could look at what is wrong with each system but be unhappy, but perhaps its better to look at what each system does right, and how many different choices we have these days.

Not too long ago, I was shooting with a 11meg Canon 1Ds that cost me about $7000, being the only FF option on the market, the highest resolution digital camera to date.

Few years later the 5D brought the size and weight down a bit, and the overall IQ even higher.

Compacts at that time where pretty noisy even at ISO100 and useless at ISO400.

There was no middle ground, there were no EVF's, no mirrorless systems.

You shot a P&S, film, or a digital SLR


We've got an amazing number of systems to choose from these days IMHO

My first digicam was a 20D, before that, EOS 1 and medium format for weddings. I also have an Olympus E-10 and E-20, loved those cameras actually!
I have had many many since. However, though the technology exists, I wish they would be put together to get close to what it seems would satisfy a portion of the market that they are marketing to individually.

If someone told me tomorrow that I could only shoot with one of these camera systems and nothing else for the next five years, I'd be fine with any of them. They're all pretty decent.

Good tequila. That's my poison.

NEX has it's foibles, but it's more friend than foe. I also could live with most any of the choices, but I'm annoyed at Canon (because I feel like they aren't really trying) so maybe not that one.

compare those to the options we had 5 years ago... oh wait, we didn't.

gotta start somewhere. things have improved substantially each year. someday we'll be back to where we were with film 40 years ago.

My dream is a full frame rangefinder that is truly pocketable, has a normal manual focus lens and costs no more than $200.

Oh wait, we had than in 1979 (Oly XA)
