My Oly might be a year old already but I feel like I got a good price compared to this plus I can use lens adapters.

See, if they are smart, they will keep the price low and introduce another model with a 12mm f2.8 lens, another with a 35mm f2 lens, and a 50mm f2 lens. That way you end up buying two cameras instead of one camera and another lens. I'd go with a 12mm and a 35mm combo personally.

I can also see black magnesium color as well for those who want to be more stealthy. I'm already visioning leather cases for it like they have for Leicas.
Hmmm, I can dream can't I?

I'm sure Uncle Luigi (external link) will be whipping up some nice cases for the rangefinder-philes who get their hands on this.

Yikes, those leather covers cost more than some cameras. I guess Leica cases come with Leica prices. Maybe I'll just keep it bear instead and save the dough for the camera.

I drop my cameras to scratch them up on purpose--gives them character.

No, not really, but if the alternative is to pay $270 for a leather case (no matter how beautifully hand-crafted by an artisan in Italy from the best quality cow hide) then I'd rather risk the knocks.

Man, I love love love this...a manual aperture ring! How freaking cool is that? It's a shame about the price.

By the way, I've noticed a lot of you guys calling this a rangefinder. It's NOT a rangefinder...it's a standard contrast AF camera. I'd much rather pay $1500 for this than a rangefinder...

right, but the sony is trash but COULD have been fantastic w/o costing more IMHO. Look at canon's 35mm f/2 in terms of price and IQ. Sony's got the build but ****ed something up in the design when they pancaked it. It's also not terrible in the "final" version supposedly?

I had such high hopes for the NEX cameras...then the price was shown and I got REALLY high hopes...then I tried one in person and was blown away by the user interface...and in this case "blown away" is NOT a good thing. So many people decry entry-level DSLRs because you have to dig in software to do what should be done with a dedicated switch/button. Sony then takes those complaints and proves that all those entry-level DSLRs are not so bad after all, by making the world's first completely useless camera, removing nearly every button and trying to use a few programmable (NOT programmable by the user, mind you) buttons to achieve what most cameras need several dials and a dozen buttons/switches to accomplish.

Yeah, I was bummed about the NEX series, but I never got to the point of even caring what the IQ was like. Once I saw the egg that the ergonomics-engineers had laid, the honeymoon plans ended!

I forgot where i saw the news, but sony might made a firmware update soon to address the ugly user interface, and it will most probably in photokina. I think it's from dpreview or the rumors site.

We'll see...it's going to take more than a couple of band-aids to stop the bleeding on this one!

Yeah, at first i thought the nex was fugly.. But when i see and hold it at the local sony center, the build and the metal lens is very nice, and the build quality is good. After reading the dumb pasm mode i was turned off though. The other thing is the lack of 35 or 50 mm prime, but sony has released the nex lenses mock in photokina so hopefully one of those are normal fast prime

edit: ingraman beat me to it. WIN INDEED.

Quote from the article itself:

Fujifilm's Adrian Clarke noted that the decision to include only a 23mm f/2...

...Furthermore, he affirmed that the company was aiming for a March 2011 ship date, with a retail price to hit near the $1,000 mark. That's hardly affordable, but Fuji's making no bones about this being a decidedly high-end piece.

This was the MSRP price I was hoping for!

At that price point this product should be a big win for them.
