Goodness BB I'll have to stay away from that situation roomThank you, Herman. Although I know there are some that really don't care about Photokina, there are plenty who do. I have to tell you that until this past year, I was oblivious to its existence. Now, I do have an interest. Some of my interest is personal, some is just the garden variety kind of "Hmm, I wonder what's new?" type, while realizing that there has to be a good amount of marketing, corporate bottom line jockeying going on for these manufacturers, too.
I saw that Noisy Camera's has established a "situation room" which did make me laugh out loud.
Indeed BB if it were to be a m43 this would be great news, a m43 Leica would go well with my new PorscheI see that Steve Huff has been gazing into his "crystal ball" again with regards to what Leica may be bringing to the Photokina table: Photokina around the corner…whats new from Leica? My predictions… | STEVE HUFF PHOTOS and it's not just about what most people think is the sure thing, either.
It will be interesting to me to see if Leica does bring out a new camera somewhere "between" the X1 and the M9. Inquiring minds will be waiting.
Timing is everything, or so they say. Chances are with a number of "new issues" that people will have to wait for several months even if they're interested. That said, I do know exactly what you mean.Not sure I'm too bothered about what Photokina will bring as I don't expect them to be bringing out a more "pro" NEX but who knows, I may be surprised. I know if I buy one this week that's what will surely happen though
I'm with you here! I have the GF1 which I love but that Fuji X100 looks the absolute nuts!!!! If that had an interchangeable lens system then the GF1 may well end up in the bottom draw!! The GF2 I predict will be a more modern looking X100 with built in EVF the same as on the G2 but in a similar location as the X100. The GF2 will be a definite purchase as I can use my lenses from the GF1.I'm still waiting for an interchangeable lens camera with rangefinder-like-looks, with AF and a built in viewfinder, without a leica price tag, provided the IQ is reasonable I'd probably buy one right away. The Fuji X100 comes close (see here:https://www.photographerslounge.org/f9/fuji-new-rangefinder-form-448/)
