I am feverishly trying to complete some writing that I should have done some time ago, so I can't post much right now sadly. But naturally when Eva / NEX talk comes up...
Would it probably be smarter to go with the previous model instead of the new model? From my understanding, the SoC is better, the fingerprint reader is nice and the camera is better - however, the only thing of those I think I'd miss out on is the new M7 processor, which could have fun applications in the future. On the other hand, perhaps the really useful applications for that co-processor will come when the next iteration of iPhone is due to a release? I don't know, but my mind is bending towards the previous model on this one.
Granted it works well even today.
I have a iP5. It works well with iOS7 (though I don't think iOS7 is all that crash hot). I like the fingerprint reader though.
Sensibly, I shouldn't get this as my first interchangeable camera system. It's too small, there's better image quality from relatively larger, but by all means still small mirrorless cameras; lens choice are even sparser than Sony's NEX line. But sensibility isn't my strong point lately, and so far all of my gut feeling purchases have been satisfactory for most times...
As much as the Eva colours are really cool, I have to say you are right, the Q10 is really not a sensible first ILC purchase. You may as well buy a high end compact given that the Q10 is more or less a toy and no one is going to make glass for it. (Which is the entire point of an ILC in the first place). It would be fun to have alongside something more 'serious' though.
Ooooo I love the RED one in the Cnet picture. If I were going for the Eva ones, I'd most likely get Shinji's just because it's so iconic and the color scheme is most pleasing to me, though my heart goes out to Asuka.
I think I'm still too drawn to Sony's NEX however......................................... (<--- whatever happened to that guy who'd post like this?)
I quite like the Rei colour scheme, though I always associate fans of Rei with creepy otaku people who want an almost entirely passive doll for a partner lol.
NEX IS DEAD. LONG LIVE ALPHA!!!!
Seriously though. Those new Alpha A7 / A7R's. Nghhh.
I am thinking of getting an A7 to replace my NEX-6. Namely because the A7 actually has audio input options and lovely full frame goodness. Actually, I just bought a second NEX-F3 on clearance so that I can have multi-angle shots with my Youtube videos. It was $285 with a kit lens, which is only a little more than the price the kit lens will attract on eBay. BARGAIN GET IS ME
