Hope it will focus in low light, at last. Otherwise what's the point of including AF?

marc petzold: Way bad Panasonic. In fact, the 2016 TZ100 EVF is 1.16 MP equivalent, and 0.2", whileas my 2008 Lumix G1 EVF was already 1.44 MP equal, based on the same time-based technique, and also bigger viewfinder area.

Why do a 2016 Lumix with 1" sensor does have such a bad, crappy EVF?

That's not progress, even more, when one would consider also the even better EVF into the FZ-1000, and with longer Zoom reach, but also more bulk, from 2014.

"I'm old fashioned, don't like to compose pictures via LCD "LiveView", taking pictures at arm-length isn't my taste. :-) "

I'm even more old-fashioned and like composing the Rolleiflex way: looking down on a screen on my tummy.

What a relief. I'm selling my RX100III at last!

Pffff A6000 fast focus? It can't even get correct focus on a person at a party!

Looks very promising. Much better layout than the Sony A6000: bigger screen, dedicated exp. compensation dial, integrated flash... More of a photographers camera. Now if only it would focus! The A6000 was hopeless at focussing, not sure the M3 will do better.
And where is the Canon compact 16-50 kit lens?

alexeckersley: I've previously owned the RX100 and upgraded to the G7X when I was recently in Singapore as the RX100 had died on me. In the flickr link below are some photos from dusk to almost dark in Fort Canning Park and more recently at Arakoon in NSW Australia. Untouched full size... mostly on auto range of zoom as I familiarise myself with the cameras strengths. I find them in general more natural with the interpretation of colour and light compared to the Sony and am very happy with the detail.

Only the lack of wide angle (24mm)

My wife hates the colours of her G7X. She wants her RX100 back!

lacikuss: I just noted from a comparison between the RX100III and the G7x that the G7X appears to be wider @24mmm than the RX100III by a good 5%.

See the Temple pictures and count the number of lamps in the frame in this site:

http://www.mobile01.com/topicdetail.php?f=538&t=4088397

I would like DPReview to compare both cameras to se if 24mm, 70mm and 100mm are actually accurate or just marketing bs

Thanks to @bernardly for this link.

Yes please DPR. For me the wider, the better. And I also noticed the Sony 1650 kitlens goes even wider...
@lacikuss: the G7X goes wider than the the RX1003, but IQ is worse

Great pictures! This is definitely better than my LX5. Would I pay 800 euro for this camera? No.

A GM1 has better quality with the kitlens.

uzevla: Seriously, what's this trend with using low-end EVFs just to satisfy some "pro" wannabees ?
0.46x magnification and 1.1K dots - who needs that ?

Compact camera like this one needs good LCD. 3.3" would be good, yet they gave us 16:9 LCD which is more like 2.5". Hopefully, they didn't do what Sony is doing as their 921K 16:9 LCD on Nex6 is extremely dim - Samsung OLED w/ 230K looks better than that.

On top of this, flash sync speed stays 1/50.

Who is buying this crap ?

This is so true and it frustrates me no end too. Had to get rid of the Nex7 and A6000 in a hurry for precisely that reason.

Picture DSCF6996 of the sample gallery really makes me scared. Look at the bleached colour of the foilage in the background. And the way the artwork in the pond is overexposed and glowing.

Hugo808: Sooner or later someone else here will have the bright idea of checking pics from different cameras side by side. Then the astonishing truth becomes apparent - there aint hardly any difference between these products. Especially at base ISO in bright sunlight.

Sorry you had to hear that from an amateur and one who has used the same digital camera for 5 years and honestly can't get his friends with their regularly upgraded super duper stuff to show him the difference pictorially.

Exactly my feelings. I take a picture at 100 iso of the same spot in my garden with every camera that comes into this house. The results have been disquieting. Some cheap tiny cameras take better pictures than Sony Nex. Why 100 iso? Because I hardly need to use anything else, even in dark buildings (steady hand, good stabilization...). And yes, I agree the dark areas come out better with bigger sensors.
