............".I have only one question. Is anybody really going to want a mini, mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera without the flexibility of the Micro 4/3 standard? Micro 4/3 is in its infancy—well, its toddlerhood—but already, I can put my favorite Panasonic lens on an Olympus body that has IS. And I can get just short of a zillion different kinds of adapters, allowing me to use anything from an old M-Rokkor to a Canon FD lens from way back before Canon even went autofocus.
It seems to me that perhaps the biggest single frustration I've had in the whole digital era is the headache of finding the lenses I want for the cameras I want. (Sony! Olympus! Oy!) Micro 4/3, being a cross-manufacturer standard, promises to alleviate that problem by allowing me to pick and choose bodies for the same lenses or pick and choose lenses for the same bodies. This is already an advantage, and the situation is only going to get better.
Does anybody really want to give that up and be completely dependent on a proprietary lensmount for this kind of camera—especially from a company that has no history as a lensmaker? Especially an electronics company, most of which treat lenses as afterthoughts?
I'm not necessarily claiming they won't. Maybe the NX10 will "..........
There, I've cheated a bit, though not intentionally . I had another forum, for general photography (not related to :43, which fizzled out and died. I wanted to give the members of that forum a chance to partcipate at mu-43 without re-registering, so I imported that database here. Still, we've had great growth in just a few weeks, and our early members are fantastic ones!
I like the Ad you put up with TOP (I read it on a regular basis) - it caught my eye and brought me here. I enjoy the Pentaxforums site alot more than Dpreview (civility, actual photography discussions beyond should I buy this that or the other, etc.), and am happy this site is doing well in its' first month or so online - nice to have a place with some more civil discussions!
