According to Fujirumors there is a chance Fuji will announce the new X-PRO 2 hybrid viewfinder camera at Photokina. It will feature a new APS-C sensor (likely 24 MP). The bad news is that it will ship in mid 2015 only :(

    I don´t care as well; however the X-Pro2 will have to be really groundbreaking to make good sales, because actual X-Pro1 is standing on shop shelves and I see no reason why buying it instead of a much cheaper and faster X-E2.
    And introducing a...

    Never mind - I'll wait until the new X-Pro 2 and X 200 will be out. My GH3 will still do for this time......

    Funny how one of Leica's taglines for this camera is: "Always there to capture the decisive moment" even though the camera only shoots at 3fps and is manual focus only.

    Leica reminds me of Praktica with their L series SLR's. Change the colour of the screws and the TL is TL2, but putting a different colour in the advance lever made it a Super TL! Calling this a MP is a sacrilege as I don't see where they have put...

    I would not go so far to say crappy - but for $8000 plus for a camera with no Auto Focus and as you say many features missing is just way way way to much - granted the Leica glass is very special and super nice - but the sensor often has been out...

    Love the design and if it's a good EVF, would love that too. BUT as iudex said, this camera needs a larger sensor. Why can't Fuji make an m/43 size sensor camera - even if lens needs to get a little larger? If at worst it had a 1" sensor I woul...

    I think I will pass up the X30 - been waiting for it a long time - I love my X20 - but I had a strong suspicion that Fuji would use the same size sensor the 2/3 sensor - so not a 1 inch sensor to help it compete with the Sony RX100m3 and the soo...

    Not bad, however camera this big and with an EVF should have bigger sensor. Back in the days when X10 was introduced 2/3" sensor was something unique; now when there are alternatives with bigger sensor (and many others on the way) retaining a 2/3"...

Digicameinfo spotted that image of the soon to be announced Leica MP 24 Megapixel "purist" camera. The specs are the followings:

- 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor
- Range finder
- 3 inches 920,000 dot LCD monitor
- (ISO100 extended) ISO200-6400
- Built-in 2GB memory
- 1980x1080 25fps video stereo
- 139mm x 80mm x 42mm size
- 680 g weight

As with all MP camera series there is no red Leica logo to see.

This is the soon to be announced Olympus E-Pl7 seen from all angles.

Not only Olympus and Panasonic will soon launch an updated firmware for their flagship cameras (E-M1 and GH4). Also Fuji will soon announce a new firmware for the X-T1! But we yet don't know what the improvements and fixes will be...

    I've never seen anybody so excited over a firmware update.

While there are plenty of rumors about Fuji-Panasonic-Olympus-Sony-Samsung mirrorless cameras there is still nothing serious coming from Nikon. And while working to get info about possible Nikon mirrorless cameras I stumbled on that image of the Nikon D750. It may be interesting for some of you.

The only difference with the D610 seems to be that tilting screen. Of course...if the image is real.

    Nope...the 2009 picture presented an AF-ON button, a round ocular (with a blinder) and a prism form like the the D700...this was made from a more basic model for sure...otherwise something strange goes on at Nikon R&D...and in such a case it c...
